Mt. Faraway (Japanese: かなる霊峰 Sacred Mt. Faraway) is a dungeon Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX that contains 40RB/60RTDX floors. It is home to Ho-Oh.

Mt. Faraway is the fourth and final dungeon in the quest for the Mirage Pokémon. After defeating Suicune in Northwind Field, it will turn the Sunset Wing into the Rainbow Wing, allowing access to the dungeon.

After completing the dungeon and talking to Spinda in Pokémon Square, it will leave and return to exploring dungeons again. Spinda has special dialogue if talked to with Ho-oh as the team leader.

Gameplay

Generation III

In the original games, HM Surf is required to enter and the game will be saved compulsorily before entering. The Friend Bow can be found behind a locked door on floor 30 of the dungeon. If player already has one, it will be replaced by a Link Cable. There is random weather effect on floors 4, 8, 10, 14, 17, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34 and 36. Additionally, light darkness shrouds floors 14-39, limiting field of view to 2 tiles in hallways.

Generation VIII

In the remake, while battling Ho-Oh at the top of the dungeon, there is an exclusive weather effect known as Rainbow Light (Japanese: にじのひかり Rainbow Light). While the floor is in that weather condition, Ho-Oh is gradually healed and is protected from bad statuses. As Rainbow Light is a weather effect, its effects can be nullified by a Pokémon with Cloud Nine or Air Lock as its Ability.

The Friend Bow can no longer be found in this dungeon, and can instead be found at Solar Cave.

A Mystery House is guaranteed to spawn at 30F, though they may appear on other floors as well.
