A gigantic Pokémon (Japanese: 巨大ポケモン gigantic Pokémon) is a Pokémon in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX that takes up nine tiles rather than the usual one.

A gigantic Pokémon has a larger reach with its attacks, and some attacks are completely different, such as Outrage. Gigantic Pokémon are also immune to Sketch.

In Super Mystery Dungeon, the player can only bring one gigantic Pokémon into a dungeon at a time. However, it is possible to have up to five gigantic Pokémon on the player's team at one time if the player has at least two party members that know Transform use it on a gigantic Pokémon and brings the Djinn's Bottle into a dungeon and uses it to call Hoopa Unbound, who can further call a gigantic Legendary Pokémon.

In Rescue Team DX, this restriction is removed, and the player is allowed to have as many gigantic Pokémon as they would like, up to the max team size.

Gigantic Pokémon also existed in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, but were not playable.

Moves that are affected by gigantic Pokémon

  This section is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: image for gigantic Splash, as well as moves like Fly and Dragon Rush

All moves have their one-tile range moves altered to hit the three tiles in the direction the gigantic Pokémon is facing. Also, moves which pierce through enemies, such as Hydro Pump, will pierce through walls as well (with the exception of Sky Attack). Some moves are completely altered when used by gigantic Pokémon.

Moves which are altered when used by gigantic Pokémon are:

Move Difference in effect
Dig   Hits 10 tiles away instead of one and also pierces through enemies and walls.
Eruption   Hits enemies in the entire room, rather than only nearby enemies.
Hyper Beam   Hits 10 tiles away instead of four. Rather than hitting its surroundings, it will pierce through enemies and walls instead of destroying them.
Hydro Pump   Pierces through enemies and walls.
Outrage   Hits 10 tiles away instead of one and only hits once instead of three. It also pierces through enemies and walls.
Splash Has no effect, rather than jump over Pokémon.
Water Spout   Hits enemies in the entire room, rather than only nearby enemies.

Trivia

  • All gigantic Pokémon had four stars in size in the previous Mystery Dungeon games, with the exception of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, who had two stars in their latest appearance prior to Super Mystery Dungeon.
  • Dark Matter is the size of a gigantic Pokémon.
