[[File:Recruitment.png|thumb|right|250px|{{p|Smoochum}} asking to join the team]]
'''Recruitment''' is [[Mystery Dungeon game mechanics|the main method]] of obtaining new [[Pokémon]] in [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team]], [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness]], [[PokemonPokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky]], and [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity]]. After defeating an enemy in a dungeon, it will occasionally offer to join the player's team.
 
In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, if a newly-recruited Pokémon—a recruit who has never cleared or warped out of a dungeon—or the team's leader faints before making it out of the dungeon, it will leave the party permanently. Dungeons consisting of multiple parts—such as [[Mt. Thunder]]—will accountcount reaching a checkpoint as making it out.
 
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 522552 instead, and in [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity|Gates to Infinity]], it is 288.
 
In [[Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon]], recruitment is no longer present. Instead, the player must [[connection|connect]] with other Pokémon in order to expand their team.
 
==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 [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness|sequels]], this requirement was removed, instead excess members simply warp out of the dungeon. In [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky|Explorers of Sky]] and [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity|Gates to Infinity]], players can choose if they 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.
* Some Pokémon, such as {{p|Omastar}} in [[Brine Cave]], are unrecruitable. In addition, many boss [[legendary Pokémon]] cannot be recruited on the first visit. In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, all but nine fully-evolved Pokémon cannot be recruited and have to be acquired via evolving.
 
===Additional requirements===
====Red and Blue Rescue Team====
* The player must be able to buy [[Friend Area]]s; the ability to do so is unlocked after clearing [[Mt. Steel]].
** The player must have bought the Friend Area that a prospective team member belongs to. This means that some Pokémon cannot be recruited until the post-game, because their Friend Areas aren't available for purchase until then. This is not the case for some legendary Pokémon such as {{p|Kyogre}}, whose Friend Areas cannot be bought; instead, their Friend Areas are unlocked after they are recruited.
 
====Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky====
* [[Chimecho Assembly]] must be open to the player's team.
* Boss legendary Pokémon no longer have to be defeated by the team leader, in order to be recruited.
