Sky Tower (Japanese: 天空 Sky Tower) is the sixteenth dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX that contains a total of 34 floors, and the final dungeon to be visited during the game's main storyline. It is home to Rayquaza.

The dungeon's first section contains 25 floors, and ends in the Sky Tower Summit (Japanese: 天空 最上階), which further contains 9 floors.

Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

The player and the partner must complete the dungeon in order to challenge Rayquaza, who, after being defeated, will destroy the Meteor, the cause of the constant natural disasters.


Generation III

In the original games, the Teleport Gem is used to reach it the first time but after the credits, due to the Teleport Gem being damaged, the HM Fly is required to enter, which is available after the completion of the main story.

There is no chance of finding a Kecleon Shop or buried items in this dungeon. Monster Houses have a chance of appearing on all floors except floors 1 and 2.

The default weather pattern for floor 7 and Summit's floor 6 is rain; for floors 11, 15, and 18, hail; for floors 12, 21 and Summit's floor 4, cloudy; and for floor 24 and Summit's floor 2, sunny.

Generation VIII

Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Section on Rayquaza boss battle, both during main story and postgame

In the remake, the Teleport Gem is not mentioned to have been damaged, thus Fly is no longer needed to reenter the dungeon.

Monster Houses have a chance of appearing on all floors except floors 1 and 2.

Rainy, sunny, sandstorm, and hail weather may occur randomly on floors.
