Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have lot of different Pokemon for you to find and evolve. Many of these Pokemon will only evolve if you put them in specific areas of the max, teach them a certain move, or max out their friendship.
The psychic-type Pokemon Chingling is one of these hard to evolve Pokemon, and it can be quite frustrating if you are trying to max out your Pokedex. The guide below is here to teach you where you can catch a Chingling and how you can get them to finally evolve into Chimecho.
