Totodile Guide

The Generation 2 water-type is available as the player or partner through the main game.

Usually, Totodile is chosen if the personality results are Naïve (for males) and Jolly (for females) in nature.

Its mobility is categorised by water, meaning it can traverse through water tiles but not fire/cloud tiles or walls.

As Totodile is a water type, he will be weak to grass and electric Pokemon, meaning you should pair it with a ground or fire-type such as Cubone, Charmander, Cyndaquil or Torchic.


How To Get Totodile

Totodile can be chosen at the start of the game as either the player or partner.

Totodile can be recruited exclusively at Joyous Tower with a recruit rate of 11.2%.

You will come across a Lv14 Cyndaquil with a rarity of:

  • 13th floor (23.53%)
  • 14th floor (21.62%)
  • 15th floor (24.25%)
  • 16th floor (32.0%)
  • 17th floor (23.53%

Evolving Totodile

Evolution does not play a massive part in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, so it is perfectly ok to keep Totodile as he is.

Although stats do not increase from evolution, moves can vary once it evolves into Croconaw or Feraligatr.

If you do wish to evolve Totodile, you will need to finish the main story and enter the Luminous Cave - be sure to check our evolution guide for more details.
