Combinations

Opposed to the original Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games, this one allows you to not only pick your partner Pokemon but the Pokemon you will play as well.

In the earlier versions of the game, the Pokemon the game chooses for you.

We'll go over some general tips to help you decide what Pokemon pairing you should use. 

  • You cannot pick the same typing, the game won't allow you to do this so you cannot have a Charmander and a Torchick for example.
  • Be aware of type match-ups: Whatever Pokemon you choose to play as consider using a Pokemon that covers the Pokemons weakness or choose one that is weak to the type you are playing as. For example, if you choose to play as Squirtle, consider pairing it up with one of the grass types to cover that weakness. 
  • Flying types are one of the more popular typings throughout the dungeons, so be sure not to use the combination of fighting and grass-type Pokemon!

How To Get A Certain Nature

One of the more notable things about the Mystery Dungeon games is the use of a personality test at the beginning of the game.

This allows the game to determine the Pokemon best suited for you along with the personality it will have with the help of some rather bizarre questions.

Although your Pokemon's personality does not matter at all, here are all the questions and the trait each answer will give you according to Pokemon Fandom!
