201

The story begins when the player has a strange dream. The player hears a Pokémon call for help, and sees a vision of Munna being chased by Hydreigon. The player then realizes that he has become a Pokémon, and is promptly transported to the Pokémon world. Upon arrival, the player quickly meets the partner Pokémon, and he asks where the player is from. When the player decides to tell the truth, the partner is at first surprised, but then accepts the player's story. The partner then asks the player to help him out with something.

The partner asks the player to help him get through the first dungeon, Ragged Mountain. The player then goes through the dungeon and out the other side. From there, the Pokémon come to a crossroad.

The Pokémon take the crossroad to a barren wasteland. There, Quagsire sells the land to the partner. The partner then begins celebrating his success, explaining to the player that his intentions were to build Paradise right where they were standing, and he asks the player to help. The player recalls the dream they had about Hydreigon chasing after a Munna, and realizing that he has no better place to be, he agrees.

The Pokémon then sleep through the night in front of a tree stump. The night is cold, and the partner suggests that they try to build a house the next day.

The next morning, Quagsire returns, and the partner tells him that they want to build a house. Quagsire says that he knows a good carpenter for them, and brings them through the crossroads to Post Town. They enter the inn, and Quagsire introduces them to Gurdurr. When the partner asks Gurdurr if he will help them build a house, he agrees, but only if they bring him five blue gems.

The player and the partner head to Stony Cave to find them. When the Pokémon reach the end of the dungeon, the blue gems are there. The partner takes five of them, and they promptly return to Post Town. On the way, a Scraggy bumps into them. Scraggy quickly apologizes and runs off, and the Pokémon return to the inn. However, when the partner tries to give Gurdurr the gems, he finds that they're gone! Gurdurr isn't upset, though; he simply tells them to go get more.

Exiting the inn, the player and partner are just about to head to Stony Cave again when the two Timburr confront them. They inform them that Scraggy had stolen their gems and to head to Hazy Pass to get them back. With that, the Pokémon head off to Hazy Pass. When reaching the sixth floor, they find Gurdurr and Scraggy conversing. Their conversation reveals that they were scamming the two. The Pokémon then confront Gurdurr and Scraggy and battle them. After defeating them, Scraggy runs away and the Timburr show up. The Timburr beg for Gurdurr to stop scamming others and to return to carpentry, but Gurdurr knocks both Timburr down, refuses, and walks away.

When the two Timburr get up, they explain everything to the player and partner. They tell them that Gurdurr used to be very fond of his craft, but one day Gurdurr got a serious back injury and was unable to build. They tell them that the last house Gurdurr ever built had his heart poured into it, but the client destroyed it after it was finished. After that, Gurdurr left carpentry and started doing bad things, like scamming. However, after being told this, the player and partner Pokémon continue to persist at Gurdurr building their house.

The Pokémon continue higher through Hazy Pass in pursuit of Gurdurr. When they find him at the top, Gurdurr attacks them. After being defeated, the partner explains that they want him to build their house. Gurdurr refuses, saying that he can't build anything worthwhile anymore. But your partner responds, saying he doesn't care as long as the house has Gurdurr's heart poured into it. Finally, Gurdurr agrees to put down scamming and return to carpentry, but not without sitting down and crying for a bit.

Several days later, Gurdurr and the Timburr finish the house, and the Pokémon sleep inside it that night. The next day, the Pokémon wake up and head outside, ready for another day. Quagsire brings them to the new Request Board, where they can take requests. The partner Pokémon looks at the board and chooses the first mission: saving Dunsparce. With that, they head out.

The Pokémon enter the dungeon called Stompstump Peak, where Dunsparce supposedly lost himself. Halfway through, they find Emolga, who they learn is Dunsparce's best friend and is also looking for him. Even further in the dungeon, the Pokémon find beautiful crystals and take one for themselves. At the end of the dungeon, the Pokémon finally find Dunsparce, and the mission is cleared.

Back in Paradise, Dunsparce gives the player rewards. He explains that his dream is to become a first-rate adventurer, although he feels he may never reach that dream. He also explains that he had went to Stompstump Peak in search of crystals. The Pokémon, remembering the crystal they picked up, decide to give it to Dunsparce.

Meanwhile, in Post Town, Virizion shows up. As usual, all the townsfolk fall in love with her. Virizion goes into the inn, as everyone follows inside.

Dunsparce, Emolga, the player and partner Pokémon arrive outside the inn, hearing everyone chatting pleasantly inside the inn. Dunsparce explains that the crystal was for Virizion; he wanted to be her friend. And so they head inside.

The partner quickly begins talking to Virizion. She explains that she was a lone adventurer, and that she had come to Post Town to see the Rainbows of Hope, four crossing rainbows that were said to inspire hope in the hearts of all who see them. Then, Dunsparce steps up and shows the crystal to Virizion, hoping to be friends. However, Virizion rejects him, saying that she doesn't believe in friends. Dunsparce quickly breaks down and runs out, as Emolga becomes angry at Virizion and follows. A couple of suspicious Pawniard look on at what is going on, and walk away.

The player and partner Pokémon exit the inn and try to look for Dunsparce. They see Quagsire, and ask him if he had seen anything. Quagsire tells the Pokémon that it saw Dunsparce following a pair of suspicious Pawniard, being promised that they would make him stronger. The Pokémon quickly realize that Dunsparce was in serious trouble, and go after them to a dungeon called Desolate Canyon.

After clearing the dungeon, the Pawniard and Dunsparce are shown heading forward. Dunsparce stops, beginning to realize the danger, but it's already too late. The Pawniard stop him from leaving and demand for his Poké. However, Emolga, the player, and the partner arrive to confront the Pawniard and save Dunsparce. However, the Pawniard reveal four goonies to battle with them. But then, Virizion, the Timburr, and Gurdurr appear, ready to protect the others. The two sides battle, and after defeating the boss Pokémon, they all scram.

With everyone safe, Virizion tells Dunsparce to try not to trust others so easily. But the partner interjects, saying that trusting might not be so bad as Virizion says. He then asks for Dunsparce and Emolga to join them in their adventures, which they both agree to. Virizion then decides to join them, as well, showing signs of change after the partner spoke with her. Emolga isn't happy about this decision, however.

The next day, Emolga, Virizion, Dunsparce, and Pelipper greet the Pokémon outside of their home. The player then chooses a team name for the Pokémon and Pelipper flies away. Quagsire appears and shows the Pokémon that Scraggy now owns a shop at the crossroad area where Pokémon can forget and remember their moves. Pelipper drops a treasure chest, as the Pokémon open it up. The chest contains a team bag, a one-page letter, and a team badge for using Team Attack. The Pokémon head to the next dungeon called Forest Grotto for their next mission. On the 7F, the Pokémon use the newly usable Team Attack prior to exiting the dungeon.

The next day, an explosion is heard. Gurdurr sees that Scraggy now owns a shop. Gurdurr shows the Pokémon that it has its own shop now as well. Gurdurr lets the Pokémon know that they can check the notice board for other missions they can take. The player decides on a mission to go on, and goes to a previous dungeon to complete it. After completing a mission, there is a message on the screen that says "Great Job". After doing two missions, Gurdurr tells the Pokémon that additional shops can now be built after completing missions and giving Poké and certain items for them.

After completing several missions, a fireball goes across the sky prior to the Pokémon waking up the next day. colorful circles float through the air, as the Pokémon exit their home. Other Pokémon in the Pokémon Paradise also see the colorful circles floating around. Emolga brings the Pokémon to a bulletin that the Pokémon are unsure of what it is for. The ground shakes, as the fireball heads toward the Pokémon. The Pokémon run away, as the fireball crashes to the ground. Victini appears inside of its own shop after the impact. Victini is displayed with a colorful background during its appearance.

Victini explains that it has a V-Wheel where Poké can be wagered to change the day's V-Wave. Victini poses and wants to be a part of Pokémon Paradise. The other Pokémon become annoyed by the posing, but Victini is allowed to stay. Victini does some dancing and spinning around. The Pokémon can now go to a dungeon called Mountain Pass for a mission. That night, the Pokémon has a dream that has sound effects, a small flash, and a large purple flash with shock waves and someone calling out for help. The Pokémon wakes up from the dream, and thinks about what they saw and heard during it after checking on the partner Pokémon. The Pokémon recalls the first dream about Hydreigon chasing a Munna, and wonders if the Munna might be the one asking for help. The next day, the partner Pokémon wakes up and notices that the other Pokémon is still awake.

After going through another mission and then waking up the next day, Dunsparce shows the Pokémon an ice-covered area in the distance. After going through another mission and then waking up the next day, an unknown figure moves through bushes toward the Pokémon Paradise. The moon is shown shining above and through the Pokémon's house. The Pokémon has another dream, this time with a voice calling their name and calling out for help. The next day, the Pokémon explains to their partner about the dream that they had. As they walk outside of their home, a Pelipper drops some papers on the ground. The Pokémon read one of the papers. Quagsire approaches them and hands the Pokémon some Poké. The Pokémon notice that the Pokémon Paradise is now empty. They go into Swanna's store and give it the Poké Quagsire gave to them. Rufflet and Herdier appear to be very worried about the disappearances.

The mysterious figure from before is again shown moving through the bushes toward Pokémon Paradise. The next day, Dunsparce, Emolga, Leavanny, and Lillipup are at the house when the Pokémon come out. Leavanny and Lillipup are worried about their friend Swadloon. The Pokémon can now go to the dungeon called Inflora Forest. When they reach the 5F, the Swadloon is seen digging up a red stone and two items with a strange pattern written on them and is shocked by it. The mysterious figure is shown moving through the forest while approaching Swadloon. Swadloon turns around and screams for help, as the mysterious figure attacks. After progressing further through the dungeon, the Pokémon reach Swadloon. The items are no longer by Swadloon. The Pokémon exit the dungeon and reunite Swadloon with Leavanny and Lillipup with them hugging each other.

That night, the sky is shown without the moon, as the partner Pokémon has thoughts about the other Pokémon, as it's sleeping. The mysterious figure from before again moves toward the Pokémon Paradise, but appears very sickly and collapses to the ground. As the Pokémon go outside, a frantic Emolga is there waiting for them. As the Pokémon enter the Pokémon Paradise, several Paradise Pokémon are anxiously waiting outside of Swanna's store. The Pokémon head inside, as the mysterious figure is revealed to be an Umbreon. Umbreon lays on the bed and looks very sick. Virizion recognizes Umbreon and tells everyone all about it. The Pokémon now have access to the Breezy Meadow and Tempting Path dungeons.

After completing another dungeon, the next day Timburr brings the Pokémon back to Swanna's store to see Umbreon. Umbreon is awake and out of bed but is still not well. Umbreon explains about Magnagates, as a couple of Entercards are shown on the screen. The same cards that Swadloon had discovered in the Inflora Forest dungeon. After Umbreon's explanation, everyone is shown to have fallen asleep during it. Umbreon is bandaged up, as the Pokémon go outside. Umbreon places the two cards in a square box, as a Magnagate portal opens up. Umbreon explains the Magnagate, and then it closes. The Pokémon have to now go to the dungeon called Crags of Lament to help Umbreon's friend Espeon.

After reaching the 4F, Espeon is shown moving through the dungeon and responding to a mysterious voice. Espeon looks very hurt as it moves through the dungeon. After reaching the 6F, there is a checkpoint where they can store items and Poké in a Treasure Box. After reaching the 10F, Espeon is shown barely making it to the top. Purugly corners it, along with Toxicroak. They move in to attack, as the player's Pokémon step in to protect Espeon. The Pokémon battle against Toxicroak and Purugly. After being defeated, Toxicroak and Purugly run away. The Pokémon exit the dungeon, as Umbreon and Espeon are reunited. Swadloon and Leavanny appear, as Swadloon hands over the two other Entercards to Espeon. A flashback is shown of Espeon being the one that approached Swadloon in Inflora Forest. Espeon saw that Swadloon had found the Entercards. The Pokémon heard rustling in the bushes, so Espeon ran away and had Swadloon protect the cards. That night, the dark sky is shown as the Pokémon talk about the Magnagate portal prior to going to sleep. A flashback is shown of Umbreon trying to open the portal. The next day, the Pokémon go to check on Umbreon and Espeon, as the other Pokémon appear as well from some hiding spots.

That night after proceeding through another dungeon, Dunsparce looks in the distance, as Virizion comes up to it. Dunsparce becomes startled, but they look in the distance together. Emolga sees them looking out at in the distance. Emolga is shocked, as it hides behind a tree and watches them. The Pokémon all talk about what happened the next day, as Espeon and Umbreon are told about it as well. Dunsparce thinks about what happened between it and Virizion, as a flashback is shown of it. That night after going through another dungeon, the partner Pokémon thinks about what has happened, as it looks at the sky just prior to sleeping. The Pokémon have a discussion with Espeon and Umbreon the next day, as it is found out that they have joined the team.

The Pokémon go up to Umbreon and Espeon, as they get ready to open the Magnagate portal. All of the Pokémon Paradise Pokémon become very excited about it. Umbreon and Espeon put the final Entercard in the box, as the portal opens. Espeon and Umbreon enter the portal first, as Virizion, Emolga, and the partner Pokémon enter the Magnagate afterward. Dunsparce is sad that it doesn't get to go, as Emolga pushes Dunsparce into the portal and stays outside of it instead. The Pokémon enter the portal and it disappears, as Emolga is sad to see them go. The Pokémon land at the entrance of a new dungeon called Telluric Path, as Dunsparce is sad that it had to leave Emolga behind.

After completing the dungeon, the Pokémon arrive through the Magnagate portal to a large icy area. The Pokémon look around and notice a large glacier in the distance. The Pokémon may now enter the dungeon called Great Glacier. After completing the Big Glacier dungeon, the Pokémon see another large glacier in the distance. The Pokémon find a circle on the ground, as they have a flashback of Umbreon and Espeon opening the Magnagate portal at Pokémon Paradise. Espeon and Umbreon place the Entercards and the box on the circle, as they open the Magnagate portal again. Streams of light shoot out of the ice, as the Pokémon enter the Magnagate portal. The Pokémon may now enter the dungeon called Glacial Underpass. After completing the Icy Underpass dungeon, the Pokémon see a large icy crystallized mountain from a high cliff. The Pokémon may now enter the dungeon called Glacier Palace.

After passing the 8F, the Pokémon see floating ice crystals and Frisms, which are capable of storing voices. The partner then tries to record his voice in one of the Frisms, which he succeeds at, and immediately replays his voice by warming the Frism. Virizion finds a Frism with something recorded in it, as Dunsparce warms it up as well. Keldeo's voice is heard from the Frism, as Virizion begins to cry, finding out that Keldeo did make it to the Glacier Palace. The Pokémon continue through the dungeon. After the 10F, the Pokémon come to a rest stop where they can store items and Poké. After finishing the 13F, the Pokémon hear a voice in the dark, as a Golurk roars and appears. Two Cryogonal also appear, as the Pokémon have a boss battle with them.

A very cold wind blows by, as the Pokémon keep going. All of the Pokémon except the main playable Pokémon have trouble walking and collapse to the floor. It becomes dark, as a voice can be heard and Kyurem drops down in front of the Pokémon. Kyurem roars, as cold air blows toward the Pokémon. The rest of the Pokémon get back up, as Kyurem tells them to leave. Kyurem disappears, as a treasure chest is left behind. The Pokémon open the chest, as it contains many items and a lot of Poké. The Pokémon celebrate about what they have found. The next day, the Pokémon hear Emolga's voice but don't know where it's coming from. They look around and find one of the crystallized rocks from the Glacier Palace dungeon. They realize that the voice they heard was coming from inside of it. The Pokémon find Emolga setting up another crystallized rock, as Emolga is embarrassed. Emolga grabs the crystallized rocks and leaves. Inside of Swanna's store, everyone is asleep. The Pokémon may now go to the Redland Reaches and Eastern Savanna dungeons.

After finishing a request or dungeon, the playable Pokémon has a dream where a voice calls out to it while a dream sequence background is shown. The next day, the playable Pokémon tells their partner what happened in the dream, and wonders who could be calling out to them. After completing another request or dungeon, the Pokémon meet up with Ducklett and Rufflet on the top of the hill. They look in the distance, as they see something yellow and shining in the sky. That night after another mission is done, the playable Pokémon has another dream sequence shown. The Pokémon that had been calling out to it is revealed to be a Munna. A flashback is shown of Hydreigon chasing Munna, as they discuss the nightmares. Something happens to Munna, as the playable Pokémon wakes up very startled. It thinks about the dream it had.

The next day, the Pokémon tells the Paradise Pokémon about what happened in the dream. Everyone becomes very worried. The Pokémon meet Umbreon and Espeon on top of the hill, as they open the Magnagate portal. Only the playable and partner Pokémon enter the Magnagate portal. The Pokémon can now enter a new dungeon called Kilionea Road. After completing the dungeon, the Pokémon arrive at a pond area, as they make a fire and sleep through the night before proceeding. That night, Munna communicates with the playable Pokémon again, as the Pokémon wakes up startled. The playable Pokémon wakes up their partner, who is startled. The playable Pokémon tells its partner about the dream. The Pokémon may now enter the Forest of Shadows dungeon. After making it through the dungeon, the Pokémon end up in a very dark area. They find a very scared Munna hiding behind a rock.

All of a sudden Munna looks fine, as two Chandelure appear, followed by Toxicroak, four Excadrill, two Gigalith, and a Purugly. The enemies move in, as the playable and partner Pokémon fight the enemies on their own in the darkness. The playable Pokémon is shown running away, as it realizes that its partner is no longer coming along with it. The Pokémon can now enter the dungeon called Daybreak Ridge. After making it past the 7F, the playable Pokémon arrives at a tall cliff. Gigalith, Chandelure, and Toxicroak corner the Pokémon. After defeating the enemies in a boss battle, Salamence and two Excadrill appear. The two Excadrill go after the playable Pokémon, as they knock it down. Salamence roars and prepares to finish the Pokémon off, as Hydreigon appears and uses Dragon Pulse to stop Salamence. Hydreigon knocks the playable Pokémon off the cliff, as it surprises the enemies. Hydreigon flies down to get the playable Pokémon.

The playable Pokémon wakes up in a cave-like area and sees Hydreigon. Hydreigon explains that it isn't a bad Pokémon, as the playable Pokémon remembers the dream of Hydreigon chasing Munna and a flashback is shown. Hydreigon appears very excited to see the playable Pokémon. The playable Pokémon remembers the original dream sequence, as a flashback is shown. Hydreigon is angry about something, as a flashback is shown of when shock waves were shown in the dream sequence. A loud roar is heard, as the playable Pokémon and Hydreigon continue on together. The Pokémon can now go to the Ochre Quarry dungeon. After completing the Ochre Quarry dungeon, the Pokémon proceed to the Withered Savanna dungeon.

After making it past 17F, Hydreigon and the playable Pokémon rest in a small area near a fire they made. The playable Pokémon remembers when the Pokémon found the Frisms in the Glacier Palace, as a flashback is shown. A flashback is also shown of Kyurem's appearance in the Glacier Palace. A flashback is also shown of the Pokémon getting tired and collapsing while walking through the Glacier Palace. The Pokémon move along, as four Excadrill appear and want to attack them. They prepare to battle, as the Excadrill suddenly disappear. The Pokémon proceed to the Holehills. After reaching the 4F, the Pokémon find a crystallized rock outside. The playable Pokémon warms up the rock, and the partner's voice can be heard from inside of it, confirming that Munna does have the partner with her.

After reaching the 13F, a cut-scene is shown of Chandelure, Toxicroak, Munna, Gigalith, and Excadrill on the cliff-side. Munna and Toxicroak discuss the partner Pokémon, as it's shown to be trapped in a sand cage. Voices are heard, as the playable Pokémon knocks out Toxicroak. The playable Pokémon checks on its partner, but a Frism is in the cage instead. The bad Pokémon ambush the playable Pokémon, as Hydreigon flies down and fires off Dragon Pulse to protect the Pokémon. The playable Pokémon rescues their partner, as they are again ambushed by the enemies on another cliff-side. The Pokémon are rescued by Hydreigon, as Salamence chases after them.

After successfully getting away from Salamence, Hydreigon is completely exhausted. The Pokémon are both relieved to have been rescued by Hydreigon. A flashback is shown of the Pokémon finding the Frism that had the partner's voice inside realizing that it wasn't the partner's. Instead, it belonged to Munna. Thus, they realized that Munna might have set up a trap. Hydreigon and the playable Pokémon fill the partner in on everything that Hydreigon said about their history. The partner Pokémon is shocked to hear how Hydreigon and the playable Pokémon know each other. The Pokémon head to the Scorching Desert dungeon. After making it past the 10F, the Pokémon walk slowly through the desert until Kyurem suddenly appears. Kyurem suddenly attacks and freezes Hydreigon. Kyurem crushes Hydreigon in the ice and Hydreigon disappears with colorful sparkles flying around. Kyurem goes after the playable Pokémon and crushes it several times. Kyurem goes after the partner Pokémon and attacks it severely as well. A couple of white flashes occur and Kyurem gets ready to finish off the playable Pokémon, as its partner steps in to stop Kyurem from attacking. A flashback is shown of the Pokémon looking at the yellow light in the sky from Pokémon Paradise, as Kyurem explains that those floating yellow lights are humans going back to human world after being defeated by Kyurem. Kyurem walks away, as the partner Pokémon checks on the playable Pokémon. Emolga and Dunsparce arrive, as the partner Pokémon fills them in on everything and they head back to Pokémon Paradise.

The Pokémon of Pokémon Paradise are filled in on what had happened, as Umbreon and Emolga are angry about it and everyone else is very sad. The Pokémon decide to avenge their fallen friend. Rufflet goes into Swanna's store, as Swanna tells him what's going on. Herdier, Ducklett, and Patrat find out as well. All of the Pokémon gather in one spot in Pokémon Paradise, as the partner Pokémon fills them in on what the plans are. The Pokémon are shocked and worried by what they heard. The ground begins to shake, as everyone heads to the top of the hill and sees a flying object heading their way. Everyone becomes frightened, as they run away and leave Swanna, the playable Pokémon, and the partner Pokémon behind. That night, the Pokémon grieve and remember Hydreigon that night in the playable and partner Pokémon's home and share concerns about what lies ahead.

Lillipup comes inside, as they head outside and all of the Pokémon lend their support even though they are afraid. Umbreon and Espeon hand the playable Pokémon the Entercards and walk away. The playable Pokémon opens up the portal at the top of the hill, as Emolga, Virizion, the playable and partner Pokémon enter the portal with Dunsparce staying in Pokémon Paradise. The Pokémon can now go to the Tyrian Maze dungeon. After making it past the 11F, the Pokémon arrive at an icy cliff-side. A shadow appears above them, as they look up and see a Glacier Palace floating in the air. Salamence flies down and roars, as two Chandelure also appear. After the bosses are defeated, all three of them collapse to the ground. One Chandelure gets back up and prepares to attack, as Espeon appears and knocks it down. The Pokémon look up at the floating Glacier Palace, as a flashback is shown of the Magnagate portal lighting the way when they were heading to the Icy Underpass dungeon.

Back at Pokémon Paradise, Pokémon look out at the Glacier Palace and are worried about the other Pokémon. Swanna calms them down, as they walk away. Meanwhile, the Pokémon take the Magnagate portal to the Glacier Palace - Eastern Spire dungeon. Virizion, Espeon, Umbreon, and Emolga enter the dungeon first and then the other Pokémon follow suit. After making it to the 2F, a cut-scene is shown of Umbreon and Espeon continuing through the dungeon and discussing what lies ahead. After making it to the 6F, a cut-scene is shown of Virizion and Emolga continuing through the dungeon and discussing what lies ahead. After making it past the 12F, Virizion and Emolga become ambushed by six Excadrill and a Purugly. The playable and partner Pokémon arrive, as they have a boss battle. After the bosses are defeated, the Pokémon continue on to the Glacier Palace - Western Spire dungeon. Meanwhile, a cut-scene is shown of Munna speaking to Kyurem in a dream state. Toxicroak informs Munna about the other Pokémon being defeated.

Back at Pokémon Paradise, Swanna, Herdier, and Dunsparce tells the rest of the Pokémon what is going on at Glacier Palace. After making it past the 3F, a thud is heard and a cut-scene is shown of Espeon and Umbreon continuing through the dungeon. Espeon and Umbreon break through a blue ice door and roll inside. They find Entercards and an injured Keldeo inside. After making it past the 12F, the a cut-scene is shown of the Glacier Palace with a purple cloud above it. It begins to shake, as the Pokémon feel it. The Pokémon get ambushed by Munna, Toxicroak, Chandelure, and four Gigalith. After the bosses are defeated, the Pokémon get back up and try to attack again. A Magnagate portal appears, as Espeon, Umbreon, and Keldeo appear. The ground shakes and the screen goes white, as the Glacier Palace breaks apart.

Munna is very hurt, as everyone is concerned. The playable and partner Pokémon continue on, as Munna's friends are worried about it. Keldeo goes down in pain, as the other Pokémon are very sad about it. The partner Pokémon is exhausted, as they enter the Glacier Palace - Great Spire dungeon. After making it past the 5F, the partner Pokémon is even more exhausted now. They see a doorway with purple streams surrounding it. Kyurem appears, as they battle it. After being defeated, Kyurem collapses to the ground.

After defeating Kyurem, the player first arrives in the room where the Bittercold lurks. The Bittercold unleashes a powerful force that greatly weakens the player's partner and falls to the ground. Fortunately the player is unaffected by the powerful force that the Bittercold exerts, so the player has to fight the Bittercold alone throughout the entire battle. The playable Pokémon moves very slowly toward the Bittercold, as it becomes more and more difficult. All of the Pokémon in Pokémon Paradise and Kyurem yell for the playable Pokémon to keep going and take it down. All of the Pokémon outside of the Glacier Palace - Great Spire cheer the playable Pokémon on as well.

During the start of the battle, the Bittercold will be immune to any damage dealt to it. The Bittercold unleashes three different attacks each time the playable Pokémon tries to attack. After using several attacks, the battle stops and the Pokémon realizes that it can't attack. The dark purple cloud above Glacier Palace continues to swirl around, which scares the Pokémon Paradise Pokémon, as the Bittercold attempts to plunge the world into darkness. The playable Pokémon hits the Bittercold with its head, which reveals its red core. The playable Pokémon hits it again, as the Bittercold lets out sparks and shock waves, before falling. The darkness around the palace disappears and shines, as a small rainbow appears above it. The Pokémon in Pokémon Paradise are shown again, which they notice that the darkness has disappeared from the palace and then having another bit of a discussion. But then the screen switches back to viewing the palace again, where the darkness comes back around the palace again. The Pokémon in Pokémon Paradise continue to cheer the playable Pokémon on. The screen then switches back to the player, where the real battle begins.

The playable Pokémon is able to now attack and defeat it. The Bittercold will shatter and explode, as the darkness disappears from the Glacier Palace Crystal Tower once again. Then the player's partner will get back up again, the palace starts to crack and break apart and palace also starts falling from the sky. The Pokémon in Pokémon Paradise become very worried about everyone in the palace. The playable and player Pokémon end up in a different colorful area, as Kyurem appears and roars. The Pokémon end up back at Pokémon Paradise. Espeon, Umbreon, Emolga, Keldeo, and Virizion are glad to see that they are okay. Dunsparce appears and is also relieved. The Pokémon go to the hill, as they see the rainbow in the sky. Hydreigon's spirit suddenly appear, which shocks everyone. Gurdurr, Swanna, and Quagsire appear and are happy to see everyone, as they inform the rest of the Pokémon. All of the Pokémon cry and are very happy that everyone is okay.

The Pokémon have a fire and celebrate. The Pokémon also celebrate in Swanna's shop. Hydreigon speaks to the playable Pokémon at the top of the hill, as a flashback is shown of the partner Pokémon speaking to it earlier. The next day, the playable Pokémon thinks about its partner, as it walks outside. A flashback is shown of them confronting Gurdurr in the Hazy Pass dungeon, and them beginning to build Pokémon Paradise in the beginning. The playable Pokémon goes back to the hill and speaks to Hydreigon again and becomes surrounded by a yellow orb, as they float into the sky. The Pokémon float around and look down on the Pokémon of Pokémon Paradise. The Pokémon look to the sky, which surprises the playable Pokémon. They continue floating toward the sky and keep looking down at the Pokémon, as they then look out at the large rainbow in the sky.

Hydreigon floats down, and gave the partner's Frism to the playable Pokémon. The partner Pokémon, Espeon, Dunsparce, Virizion, Umbreon, Quagsire, Swanna, Gurdurr, Herdier and Emolga speak to the playable Pokémon through the Frism. Again a flashback is shown of the playable and partner Pokémon talking and being happy in front of their house. A flashback is shown of everyone watching the playable Pokémon and Hydreigon float to the sky. The playable Pokémon begins to cry, as the credits begin to run with a scene of the rainbow, the playable Pokémon floating, and an overhead view of the world being shown.

After the main story-line

The player starts out as their partner Pokémon for several days until they complete the Worldcore and make a wish for their playable Pokémon to return. The player decides whether to return or not and evolution may not happen until they return to Pokémon Paradise. After the player returns to Pokémon Paradise and completes one dungeon, both the player and partner Pokémon may now evolve if the player chooses to evolve them inside of dungeons. The leading Pokémon may also be changed at any time in a dungeon as well.

Features

Companion Mode and Local Wireless

Multiplayer mode with three other players.

One job request after the Challenge Board has appeared, these two options will be available from the menu. In Companion Mode, the game can temporarily switch to other recruited Pokémon as the main player. All normal functions are available and items and money collected are carried over to story mode. In this mode, the player cannot leave Pokémon Paradise and Cinccino, Rampardos and Cofagrigus from Post Town will appear there to function as their individual shops.

Local Wireless can only be accessed in Companion Mode. This provides multiplayer and is the only way to have more than one player-controlled Pokémon when on Challenge job requests.

Team Attack

Team Attack

This is a new type of special attack accessed after the Team Badge is obtained. The player has to build this up in dungeons, using moves and defeating wild Pokémon. Once it's built up, the team attack logo will be displayed on the touch screen when L is pressed. It emits a green light and is significantly stronger than regular moves, attacking all enemies in the room and restoring HP, increasing accuracy, etc.

The typing of the leader determines the added effect. In case of a dual-typed leader, the effect is randomly chosen between the two types.

Type Added Effect
Normal-type Inflicts Cringe status to all enemies in the room.
Fighting-type Team members gain the Protect status.
Flying-type Team members have their Travel Speed boosted by 3 stages.
Poison-type Enemies in the room have their Defense and Special Defense stats lowered.
Ground-type Enemies in the room have their Accuracy lowered.
Rock-type Team members have their Defense and Special Defense stats boosted.
Bug-type Team members have all their stats boosted by one level.
Ghost-type Inflicts Nightmare status to all enemies in the room.
Steel-type Inflicts Blinker status to all enemies in the room.
Fire-type Fire-type moves are boosted.
Water-type Enemies in the room have their Travel Speed lowered.
Grass-type Team members are healed +100 HP.
Electric-type Inflicts Paralysis status to all enemies in the room.
Psychic-type Inflicts Confusion status to all enemies in the room.
Ice-type Inflicts Frozen status to all enemies in the room.
Dragon-type Team members have their Attack stat boosted.
Dark-type Inflicts Terrified status to all enemies in the room.

When there are no enemies in the room, the attack fails; however, the unused attack can still be performed while in the same dungeon at a later time.

Hubs and other out-of-dungeon locations

Some dungeons have floors where the player can roam around freely and has to complete various tasks in order to proceed. Items cannot be used outside of battle. They contain wild Pokémon, changing part of the floor to a regular grid-like dungeon floor during a battle. The player can escape from battle by stepping out of the grid.

The crossroads provides access to non-job request dungeons, Post Town and Pokémon Paradise.

Pokémon Paradise

Main article: Pokémon Paradise

Initially established by the partner Pokémon, this location progresses as the story does.

Mysteriosity

A mysterious distortion

After the main story-line, dungeons will begin to have a Mysteriosity rating, indicated by a number next to the dungeon's name ranging from 1 to 5. The higher the number, the greater the likelihood of mysterious changes occurring in the dungeon.

These include mysterious distortions which occur when the player enters a new floor. These distortions come in a variety of colors and with a variety of different effects which last for the entire floor. Some of the effects include: Lowering or raising the enemies' speed, only a certain Pokémon appearing on the floor, not being able to recover HP, weather effects appearing, enemies put to sleep, Wonder Orbs not being usable, floors having no rooms and only corridors, and consumable items not being usable.

Mysterious powers in dungeons may also warp the player to a different dungeon when the player changes floors. These dungeons will often contain different Pokémon and the floor number the player returns to will be equivalent to how many floors they were gone for. If these occur during a mission, the player will be returned to the normal dungeon on the floor of the mission or earlier. Depending on the dungeon, the player may be warped to:

  • Gilded Hall: The equivalent of Golden Chambers from previous Mystery Dungeon games. These dungeons contain rarer items and may contain certain Legendary Pokémon.
  • Uncharted Road: A dungeon which can differ in scenery from the original dungeon. Uncharted Road dungeons allow the player to recruit the other starter Pokémon which are otherwise only recruitable from DLC dungeons.
  • Storyline dungeons can be accessed through warping from specific dungeons. For example, Glacier Palace can be accessed from Stony Cave, Desolate Canyon, Holehills, and Scorching Desert with a high mysteriosity level.
  • The player may also warp to a dungeon with the same name as the dungeon they were originally in, but with the recruitability conditions reversed.

New mechanics

  • This game implements full 3D gameplay and depth perception via the 3DS's 3D capabilities. It also takes advantage of the 3DS's AR functions. By recognizing different round objects, it transforms them into a Magnagate, leaving an infinite labyrinth of dungeons to be explored.
  • Many Unova Pokémon such as Gurdurr, Virizion, and Hydreigon are included in the game, though some, such as Throh and Sawk, are oddly left out. Only a handful of Pokémon from previous generations appear in the game. A total of 144 Pokémon appear in the game. Despite this, a maximum of 288 Pokémon can be recruited.
  • Moves now have ranks. As a move is used, it gains progress towards the next rank. As a move ranks up, it grows in power, accuracy, and maximum PP. Status moves do not have ranks, and moves with set damage or moves that do damage based on factors such as the target's remaining HP (such as Wring Out) can rank up, but cannot increase in power. Move ranks are denoted by Roman Numerals, starting at I. As a move grows in rank, more uses are needed to raise it to the next rank. Dojos can also be built to train moves. Unlike using a move, Dojos add the same percentage of progress towards the next rank regardless of the move's current rank.
  • Hunger is absent from a majority of the dungeons in the game, only appearing in the final three listed dungeons after clearing the story.
  • At the start of the game, the player starts off at level 7, but in all Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games prior to this, the player starts off at level 5.
  • There are obstacles such as a Poison Gas clouds, electricity, flames, vines, and bewitching mist that block locked doors and certain pathways in dungeons. If a Pokémon of the type of obstacle is brought along with the player's Pokémon, the obstacle will disappear when the playable Pokémon touches it. Water-type Pokémon can eliminate the flames, Electric-type Pokémon can get rid of the electricity, Grass-type Pokémon can get rid of the vines, Poison-type and Steel-type Pokémon can get rid of the Poison Gas cloud, Ghost-type and Dark-type Pokémon can get rid of the mist, and ice can be eliminated by Fire-type Pokémon.
  • Unless the weather is clear, the Pokémon's HP will not naturally regenerate with walking. However, the player can still use items to heal.
  • Wonder Orbs may now be used during boss battles.
  • There are no look-alike items in the game.
  • TMs may now be used an infinite number of times, just like in the core series.
  • Pokémon with more than one ability will only have one of them, like in the core series, as opposed to previous Mystery Dungeon games where both abilities were active.
  • If the player fails to complete a dungeon, fewer items are lost and they keep their Poké.
  • There are certain tiles on the ground that have different effects in dungeons. For example, yellow star-shaped tiles allow the Pokémon to attack twice automatically with the same attack when standing on the shape. Eraser-esque tiles on the ground make items that are thrown disappear when the Pokémon is standing on it. The game also introduces the Training Switch, a tile which grants the effect of a Training Seed for whole floor. These rarely appear on floors randomly in some dungeons, will always appear behind locked doors, and are common in some DLC dungeons (such as Mt. Travail).
  • Traps can now occur at the entrances to rooms, unlike previous games where the first tile after a hallway was guaranteed to not hold traps.
  • Recruited and Partner Pokémon that are not brought into a dungeon still receive experience points when the player completes dungeons. Once the Pokémon are brought into another dungeon, the recruited Pokémon will level up from the experience it had gained without being absent from the group.
  • Damaging moves can now miss due to too high of defense or special defense and level, rather than just doing 1 HP of damage. It will say that the Pokémon "took no damage!".
  • Kecleon can no longer be recruited if defeated. There is no Kecleon Gift, and a Normal Gift and Premier Gift will fail if used on Kecleon.
  • Team Skills replace IQ skills that the older games had. Unlike IQ skills, Team Skills that are active affect all of the player's Pokémon. Treasure Boxes can contain new skills after being opened by Rampardos.
  • Hostile Pokémon can now evolve if they're given a certain item instead of only by defeating player's Pokémon. This happens often in Magnagate dungeons.
  • If items are dropped in water, fire, or chasms, they are automatically placed on the nearest path, contrary to previous games where they were submerged or destroyed.
  • In previous Mystery Dungeon games, the Job Bulletin Board will have two lists, but in this game there are five for both boards.
  • It is unnecessary to complete a dungeon in order to recruit new Pokémon, and they can also be sent back when the team is full.
  • Job requests can only be fulfilled one at a time, even if they are in the same dungeon.
  • Wonder Mail returns, but instead of being a long password that can unlock new dungeons and legendary Pokémon, it is an 8-character password and gives the player various items.

The Team

  • Dunsparce: A shy guy who dreams of becoming a first-rate adventurer, but finds himself to be too weak to accomplish that goal. After the player gets the Request Board in Pokémon Paradise, the player's partner chooses the first mission, which will be to rescue Dunsparce, who is lost. After rescuing him, he joins the team. His best friend is Emolga.
  • Emolga: The player first encounters Emolga while on their mission searching for Dunsparce. Emolga is Dunsparce's best friend, and he always stands up for him. After Dunsparce has been rescued, he joins the team along with Dunsparce. He doesn't like Virizion at first, due to the way she treated Dunsparce, though they later make amends.
  • Virizion: Virizion is a very popular Pokémon among the Post Town inhabitants, even though she has turned them all down at some point. The player first meets her after rescuing Dunsparce. Dunsparce had gotten lost looking for a crystal to give to Virizion as a gift, because he wanted to be her friend. Virizion turns him down, saying she doesn't have friends. This hurts Dunsparce's feelings, causing him to run away. After rescuing Dunsparce again, she asks to join the team. The player's partner immediately accepts, much to Emolga's chagrin. Virizion proves to be a calm and collected addition to the team, rarely outwardly expressing her emotions, but she changes as more and more is revealed about her past with her last friend, Keldeo. She later admits that she likes Emolga.
  • Umbreon and Espeon: They are partners and dungeon researchers. Umbreon wanders into Post Town one night, injured. As Swanna nurses him back to health, he reveals that he thinks his sister, Espeon, is in trouble. After they are reunited, they join the team, though they do not go on missions right away. They also know Virizion from her past and reveal the reason she doesn't have friends.
  • Keldeo: A friend of Virizion, and a Magnagate savant. He was imprisoned in Glacier Palace, and there he wrote a letter to Virizion telling her that they weren't friends anymore. This letter caused Virizion to stop believing in friends. After being rescued by Umbreon and Espeon, he apologizes to Virizion for writing the letter. He joins the player's team after the player Pokémon returns to the human world.
  • Hydreigon: A Pokémon that is a physical embodiment of the Voice of Life. He assisted in the player's character being transported to the Pokémon world. He often rambles and joins the team after the final battle. He is very fond of Swanna's food.

Main Villians

  • Munna: A Pokémon who has lost hope in the world and seeks to protect the Bittercold in order to destroy it. She first appears in the player's dream prior to coming to the Pokémon world and is believed to be an innocent Pokémon in distress. Only later does the player discovers that Munna works for Kyurem, and is in fact out to destroy the player. The partner eventually convinces Munna that there is still hope in the world, and she cheers them on during the final battle with the Bittercold.
  • Toxicroak and Purugly: Two of Munna's friends and cohorts who work with her in her goal to destroy the world and end everything. Like Munna, they also change their minds about the world's destruction and cheer on the player during the final battle.
  • Kyurem: The protector of the Bittercold. Kyurem foresaw the world's destruction and sees it as his duty to protect that future. He actively uses force to stop the player from destroying the Bittercold, but when defeated later on, he comes to face that, maybe, the determination of the player is enough to change the future.
  • Pawniard Brothers: They scam Dunsparce with a deal of getting stronger to get Virizion to be his friend. When the Pawniard Brothers are defeated, they quickly scram.

Post Town Residents

Paradise Residents

  • Quagsire: He sells the land that will become Pokémon Paradise to the partner Pokémon. He later helps the player and partner build their house, and then opens a shop in Paradise, where the player can rearrange their team members, and also buy items. He is the one to reward the player after outlaw missions.
  • Gurdurr: A former carpenter, became a con artist with his partner Scraggy after he was injured. He initially conned the player Pokémon and their partner, but is defeated in battle when found out. The Timburr Brothers attempt to convince him to return to carpentry, but he refuses. It is only after the player Pokémon and his partner persist at getting Gurdurr to build their house for them when he finally is convinced to return to carpentry. He builds facilities and prepares land for use in Paradise, though he can later do other things such as upgrade and repaint facilities.
  • Timburr Brothers: Gurdurr's apprentices, who become concerned when Gurdurr leaves carpentry after becoming injured, scamming other Pokémon instead. After Gurdurr is reformed, they help him when he builds facilities in Paradise.
  • Scraggy: A criminal from the west, and Gurdurr's former partner. After the player, their partner, and the Timburr Brothers defeat him (and some force by Quagsire, who Scraggy is very afraid of), he opens a shop in Paradise where he acts as the Move Reminder and Move Deleter for the game. He spends most of the game making snarky remarks to other Pokémon, specifically the player Pokémon and their partner, but eventually apologizes after the player Pokémon and their partner defeat the Bittercold and save the world.
  • Victini: A lively, ecstatic Pokémon who runs the V-Wheel and shows the V-Wavecast in Pokémon Paradise. He is shown to get overly excited, especially about his wheel.
  • Azumarill: Runs the Request Counter, where job requests can be accepted and canceled.
  • Meloetta: After defeating the Bittercold and clearing the Worldcore dungeon, it will appear in the player's Paradise. It will then ask the player to gather parts to build a Musical Paradise shop. After building the shop and changing the Paradise's theme, it will ask to join the player's team. Meloetta has two alter egos depending on its forme.

Downloadable Content

Additional dungeons and music tracks are available to purchase, bundled into packs of one dungeon and two songs each. The songs on offer are from previous Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games, not including the WiiWare entries.

Purchasing a pack will make the dungeon available from the world map. However, note that all DLC dungeons are located on the same blue map marker as Paradise's location. Purchased music tracks will be added to a randomly-cycling selection of music on the game's main menu, replacing the default main menu music. Once the player has built the Music Paradise, any purchased music will also be added to the list of available tracks there.

Demo

The game demo was released on the Nintendo eShop on November 7, 2012 in Japan and subsequently on March 7, 2013 in the US and on April 25, 2013 for Europe and Australia.

The demo follows the storyline as usual, but the player will not be able to explore Hazy Pass or any locations afterward. However, Magnagate dungeons can still be played, but the player will not be able to save dungeons to be replayed later and Magnagates will not change based on size or color of objects. Any game progress, money, and items in storage in the demo version can be transferred to the full version. Additionally, some characters break the fourth wall by saying the feature will be available in the full version.

The demo software can be used a maximum of 10 times, except for the US demo where it can be played for a maximum of 30 times.

Reception

Gaming magazine Famitsu gave Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity a score of 38 out of 40.[1] IGN rated the game a "Bad" 4.5/10.[2] It holds a rating of 62.34% on GameRankings, based on 31 reviews.[3]

Trivia

  • This is the first Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game to be released without being tied to another game in the series.
  • This is the only Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game that uses 3D models on its box art instead of Ken Sugimori artwork.
  • This is the second Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game that the player can choose their Pokémon, with the first games where the player selected their own Pokémon being the WiiWare games, unlike the earlier games in the series where a quiz chose the kind of Pokémon the player would be.
  • This Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game features the least amount of choices of for the player and partner in general, with five to choose from.
  • When first meeting Swanna in the English version of the game, she makes a statement that references Carly Rae Jepsen's song, "Call Me Maybe".
  • In the Japanese version, players are able to select the gender for their partner Pokémon. In the international versions, there is no gender selection.
    • Because of the lack of gender selection and the fact that some languages have no gender-neutral pronoun, these languages use male pronouns.
  • The team name that Emolga suggests, "Emolga's Enforcers," is too long for the space provided.
