|2||Battle Frontier (Purchase for 48BP)||Repeatable|
You can get one Bright Powder from DJ Mary as a gift for saving the Goldenrod Radio Tower from the Rocket Takeover. DJ Mary is in 4F of the Goldenrod Radio Tower.
Alternatively, you can also Purchase Bright Powder from the Trainer Item stall in the Battle Frontier for 48 Battle Points.
Obtaining Bright Powder
Method 1: Reward From DJ Mary
DJ Mary will give you one Bright Powder after saving the Goldenrod Radio Tower from the Rocket Takeover. This is part of the main storyline so you’ll clear the Radio Tower just by playing through the game.
The Goldenrod Radio Tower can be found in the Northwest part of Goldenrod City, next to the Magnet Train Station.
DJ Mary will be at the 4th floor of the Goldenrod Radio Tower, inside her recording booth. She will thank you for saving them, and reward you with the Bright Powder.
Method 2: Purchasing From the Battle Frontier Stalls
You can use this method if you need more than one Bright Powder, but it is only available after beating Elite Four.
First, head to the Battle Frontier. You can Fly there directly, but if you have not yet discovered it, you can Fly to Olivine City and then head west to Route 40.
The entrance at Route 40 leads to an intermediary area called the Frontier Access, which links Route 40 to the Battle Frontier proper.
Enter and continue heading north of the Frontier Access to get to the Battle Frontier.
The Battle Frontier Entrance has three stalls.
Two of those sell useful items, including the Bright Powder. However, they require BP or Battle Points to redeem.
Battle Points are acquired by participating in the Battle Frontier Challenges. Once you accrue 48BP, you can redeem those points for a Bright Powder.
Bright Powder Uses
Bright Powder is an item that reduces the effective Accuracy of moves used against the holder by 10%. This effect stacks with the holder’s Evasion and your opponent’s Accuracy changes.
Although it relies heavily on RNG, having your opponent miss their moves more often is extremely useful for turning the tide of battle.
Note: Moves that cannot miss like Aerial Ace and Faint Attack are unaffected by Bright Powder.
When given to slow Pokémon, Bright Powder can be treated as an alternative to Quick Claw, since it accomplishes a similar role of allowing you to move before your opponent.
But unlike the Quick Claw, it’s still viable to give Bright Powder to Pokémon with very high Speed Stats. In that case it acts as a minor Evasion boost that you can enhance with Double Team or Minimize.
