How To Evolve Your Pokemon In Mystery Dungeon DX

After you clear the game, the player is informed that something weird is going on with Snubbull.

Once you reach the Whiscash Pond, you'll see Alakazam with a 'new' Pokemon (Snubbull).

Snubbull found himself changed after going into an opening of the stepping rocks on the pond - Alakazam will introduce you to him and tell you he had evolved and will be powered up.


After this, the cave under the rocks (Luminous Cave) will be opened. By entering the cave, the Pokemon can evolve.

Only one Pokemon will be able to enter at one time - you will need to make the Pokemon you wish to evolve the leader.

You must leave the cave and come back again if you want to further evolve, provided that you have fulfilled the requirements for evolution.

Your Pokemon has to be alone to enter the Luminous Cave. You would have to make it the leader of the team and let the other team members return to their Friend Areas.

To make a Pokemon the leader of the team, approach it in its Friend Area, and let it join the team. Talk to it again, and you can select the option "Make Leader". This will make your Pokemon the leader of the team.

Since your original leader is still part of the team, you will have to go to the Friend Area of the original leader and ask it to "Stand By". Your new leader will now be alone, and you can enter the Luminous Cave.
