no edit summary
The games contain items that increase the chance of Pokémon asking to be recruited. These are important as the base recruit rate of certain Pokémon, most notably {{p|Kecleon}}, is below zero.
 
There is a limit of 413 Pokémon at one time in [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team|Red and Blue Rescue Teams]]. In [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness|Explorers of Time, Darkness]] and [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky|Sky]], the limit is instead 522 and in [[Pokémon.<!-- checkMystery otherDungeon: gamesGates please-->to Infinity|Gates to infinity]] it is 288.
 
==Requirements==
In addition to the prospective recruit having an effective recruit rate higher than zero, there are several other prerequisites for recruiting a certain Pokémon to be possible:
* In the [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon:Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team|first two games]], offers will only be made if there is space in the current party. In the sequels and [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: GatesExplorers toof InfinityTime and Explorers of Darkness|sequels]], this requirement was removed., Instead,instead excess members simply warp out of the dungeon. In [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky|Explorers of sky]] and [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity|Gates to infinity]], players can choose whichif memberthey want to send home the recruited pokémon or not.
* The team leader must deal the finishing blow that causes the enemy to faint.
* The enemy must be adjacent to the team leader when the finishing blow is delivered. However, Pokémon that are not immediately recruited when the final blow is dealt, but after a short cutscene (many [[Legendary Pokémon]] for instance), are an exception to this rule.

====Friend Bow====
In the [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team|Red and Blue versionsRescue Teams]], the only such item to increase recruitment is the Friend Bow. When held by the leading Pokémon, it raises the recruitment rate by 10%. The bow is located behind a door needing a [[key]] to open on floor 30 of [[Mt. Faraway]]. Further Friend Bows can be purchased from {{p[[Kecleon Shop|Kecleon}} shops]] in [[Joyous Tower]]. In the [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness|Explorers of Time and Darkness versions]], the Friend Bow is supplemented with a number of other items, but can still be bought from Kecleon Shops in [[Zero Isle North]]. In Explorers of Sky, the Friend Bow is able to be won as a prize item from the Recycle Shop in [[Spinda's CafeCafé]].
 
The following [[Wonder Mail]] S mission allows the player to explore the [[Drenched Bluff]] and receive the Friend Bow as a reward.
