If this lovable Hoenn Pokemon is your choice in the new Mystery Dungeon game, here's our guide!

Skitty Guide

The Generation 3 normal-type is available as the player or partner through the main game.

Usually, Skitty is chosen if the personality results are Hasty (for females) in nature.

It has normal mobility, meaning it cannot traverse through water, lava and cloud tiles and walls without the assistance of a mobility-enhancing item or a certain IQ skill.

As Skitty is a normal type, it will be to fighting type Pokemon, meaning you should pair it with a flying type. Unfortunately, there are no flying type starters - the closest is Torchic who doesn't learn Peck until later in the game. As there are plenty of flying Pokemon in this game, pairing it with Pikachu is a good option.

 

How To Get Skitty

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

Skitty can be recruited exclusively at Waterfall Pond with a recruit rate of 7.2%.

You will come across a Lv22 Skitty with a rarity of:

  • 24th floor (8.89%)
  • 25th floor (8.51%)
  • 26th floor (13.33%)
  • 27th floor (9.09%)
  • 28th floor (16.0%)

Evolving Skitty

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

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

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