Reason: Translations (including Japanese names) of rare qualities and specific effects (if necessary).

Rare qualities (Japanese: すごわざ amazing skill) are passive abilities in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX that Pokémon can have that affect the player's team inside of mystery dungeons. These abilities replace Team Skills and the IQ systems of previous games in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. All rare qualities—even those of temporary recruits—affect every allied Pokémon on the floor.

Upon recruitment, Pokémon may have one of these Qualities. Using a Rare Quality Orb will increase the odds of newly recruited Pokémon having rare qualities.

Rare qualities may also be obtained by having a Pokémon eat a DX or Rainbow Gummi. DX Gummis will guarantee a new rare quality, while Rainbow Gummis only have a chance to.

If a Pokémon already has a rare quality and obtains a second one after being fed a gummi, the player will get to choose which to keep.
