Pokemon Mystery Dungeon

How do you evolve yourself and your partner? Also, how do you get ALL of the Legendaries? Thank you.

Games Guru: This would take a very long time to answer since there are 33 Legendaries in  the game. Usually, you can find them wandering the floors of various dungeons, but you need a special item to find them. Regarding evolving, you have to defeat Palvia for a second time to evolve your starters. That doesn’t happen until you beat Dark Crater, near the end of the game.

What’s with team raider on the beach after you unlock marine resort?

Games Guru: I know at one point Team Raider is on the beach because they rescued Dugtrio from the water. Otherwise they just sort of hang out. It’s a beach, after all!

How do you get the top screen adjustment on Explorers of Time?

Games Guru: Changing what is displayed on the top screen is done in the options. Just bring up the menu screen, choose “Others” then “Options.” The second option on the list is called “Top screen.” Then simply choose what you would the top screen to display.

How do I recruit Darkrai? I went back and he isn’t there. And what do I do after I beat Darkrai?

Games Guru: First complete a random mission to obtain a Mystery Part or Secret Slab. Put this item in your inventory and go to Mystifying Forest floor 13, Miracle Sea floor 3, Lower Crevasse Cave floor 2, Mt Travail floor 17, or Spacial Rift floor 14. Darkrai will be on the floor somewhere. If you defeat it and it doesn’t join, it will not respawn until the dungeon is exited and re-entered.

There is only one more story event after defeating Darkrai. Simply complete random missions for a few days to get the last event.

What happens after you get the Lucario rank? I already know I can get to a higher rank, but I’m just stuck!

Games Guru: Ranks are increased by taking random missions off the Job Bulletin Board or Outlaw Board. Master Rank is the highest attainable rank.

Could you tell me how many floors dark crater has?

Games Guru: 29 floors, plus the Dark Crater Pit.

    Why would nintendo put things in that are not important to the storyline? I have wondered why for a long time. First I discovered things in pokemon diamond that made no sense at all and that served no purpose, and now I wonder why team raider is in mystery dungeon, if they truly serve no purpose at all. These pointless things are annoying and frustrating.

    chimchar980, what part are you stuck on in the blizzard island. I’ve beaten the game up to the last legendry pokemon. So I may be able to help!

  9. i beat the whole game, including the darkrai part. it was sooo easy, everyone says its hard because darkrai kept on using double team throughout the battle. It was easy for me because i was a torchic and i used mirror move and darkrai used nightmare and then he fell asleep because of mirror move and he was asleep the whole entire battle

    what is the wonder mail code to get the 7 treasures missions so i can recruit mew???

    now all i do is erase my game then play it all over again, then erase, and so on and so on…

    I’m not sure if that is all, but it’s a start.

    As far as i concerned mud, I think the only thing you can do is work on getting the mystery part, or secret slab, and then going to dungons to recruit rare pokemon. After that it is just doing jobs, and trying to earn the master rank.

  14. ifernape, to eveolve, you need to prevent the “Palnets paralysis”, then beat the guild. to eveolve you or your partner, you need to wait a bit and go to spacial rift and friend plakia

    in pokemon explorers of time, how to evovle in luminous spring?

  21. chimchar980 // June 24, 2009 at 2:03 pm // Reply

    that does not anwser my QU!!!!!

  22. btw pikachu15, after manaphy, you have to goto spacial rift and recruit palkia to eveolve starters. explorers of sky seems uncool. they added new starters, but only guys like shinx and phanpy.

  23. just a hint dudes, once you prevent the “planet’s paralysis”, save up all of your blue gummis. you’ll meet manaphy, and he only eats blue gummis. about 2 or 3 will do. this way, you do not have to thoroughly search craggy coast looking for blue gummis.

  24. Actually, pikachu15, I started over. btw, Aquaflame, i don’t think that they put shaymin in the game. he was just a bonus for pkmn d and p. Like Mew, he isn’t a regular legendary.
