* 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.
* In [[Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon]], Pokémon can only be recruited by doing Connection Orb missions rather than fighting them in dungeons. Some Pokémon can also be automatically recruited through the [[Café Connection]] facilities.
===Additional requirements in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team===
* The player must be able to buy [[Friend Area]]s; the ability to do so is unlocked after clearing [[Thunderwave Cave]].
* 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.
===Additional requirements in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of 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.
