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

As in previous games, the player is a human who has been transformed into a Pokémon child, and has appeared in a world inhabited only by Pokémon. The player has lost all memories of being a human, aside from the fact that they were human. Soon after this, the player is attacked by a trio of Beheeyem. In a bid to escape, the player encounters a Nuzleaf who helps the player escape the Beheeyem, bringing them to Serene Village and taking them in. As the player looks about schooling age, Nuzleaf has the player enrolled in the village school, where they meet the partner Pokémon. The partner is a mischievous troublemaker who has a dream of joining the Expedition Society and making a map of the entire known world. Together with the partner and classmates, the player has several adventures, some of which bring them in contact with Ampharos, who grants them Junior Expedition Society Badges (as children are not allowed to join, due to rules by the chief). The partner also shares their Harmony Scarves with the player - a pair of striped scarves found with the partner when the partner's adoptive father, Carracosta, discovered them.

Eventually, Nuzleaf leads the player and partner on an expedition to Revelation Mountain, a sacred location guarded by the villagers, in hopes of obtaining insight into the player's amnesiac condition. However, they are forced to abandon the expedition due to the Pokémon patrolling the area. Determined, the partner proposes to the player that they both leave the village for Lively Town and join the Expedition Society, despite their fellow villagers discouraging this. After a harrowing journey, the pair make it to Lively Town and meet the Expedition Society, discovering that Ampharos is actually its leader. Ampharos revokes his rule banning children from joining and officially declares the player and partner members of the Society.

As the player carries out missions, they learn about rumors where Pokémon were found to have turned into stone. On one such expedition, they discover Latios and Latias's petrified bodies, having crash landed after turning into stone in mid-air. They also encounter Entei, who believes the player to be somehow responsible. Shortly after, Ampharos leads the Society on an expedition to a volcanic island where Entei lives, to confirm his own suspicions about the rumors. In a battle with Entei, the Harmony Scarves suddenly resonate and cause the player and partner to evolve into their final forms (albeit temporarily), allowing them to hold Entei back until Ampharos arrives and declares a truce.

Some time later, written warnings begin appearing around town, declaring that Legendary Pokémon are the ones being targeted and the next victim will be Entei. The Society rushes to intercept the rendezvous, but Entei has already been petrified. Moreover, suspicion has now fallen on Krookodile, a local gangster. The Society splits into two investigative teams: one to research how to reverse the petrification, and one to pursue Krookodile. The player's pursuit team chases Krookodile up Revelation Mountain, meeting up with Nuzleaf in the process, discovering a shimmering lake at the summit protected by a pyramid-shaped barrier. The partner, deciphering ancient runes left nearby to everyone's surprise, reveals that only a human can break the barrier, and the other investigative team reports that the lake's Luminous Water is an antidote for the petrification. Just then, Krookodile shows up, as well as Raikou and Suicune who seek to avenge Entei's defeat. Forced to make a decision, the player breaks the lake's barrier, and Krookodile outs Nuzleaf as the one who paid him to write the warnings. Nuzleaf's demeanor changes, revealing himself to be the one responsible for the petrification incidents. Summoning Yveltal to his side, Nuzleaf turns the player's team, Krookodile, Raikou and Suicune into stone; elsewhere, the Beheeyem turn the other investigative team to stone as well.

The Voidlands

The player and partner awaken in a bleak landscape known as the Voidlands, where the spirits of all Pokémon who are turned to stone are sent to. They manage to regroup with the other members of the Society, as well as the Legendary beasts and make their way through the Voidlands. Coming across various runes deciphered by the partner, they learn that an evil force known as Dark Matter is responsible for the current crisis: an embodiment of the darkness and negativity residing in all Pokémon, which feeds off the energy of its victims, turning them to stone as a result. Dark Matter appeared in the ancient past, but was stopped before it could spread its influence and destroy the planet by possessing a landmark known as the Tree of Life. Some of the group are captured by Void Shadows, blob-like minions of Dark Matter capable of assuming the forms of Pokémon. The rest of the team manages to reach the Door of Light, a portal back to their world, heavily guarded by more Void Shadows. The rest of the group holds the Void Shadows back, allowing the player and partner to return to their world.

The player and partner wake up in their world, discovering that Nuzleaf has already drained the Luminous Water, and most of Serene Village and Lively Town's populations have already been petrified. Ampharos, together with Society astronomer Jirachi, have done their own investigations on Dark Matter, and evacuated the shopkeepers into Society Headquarters. The player chances upon one of the Beheeyem from earlier and attacks him with the partner. The Beheeyem declares that he isn't an enemy; he managed to break free from Dark Matter's mind control which was prompting him to commit unspeakable acts. He reveals that he came to lead the way to the Tree of Life so the player can save it. Choosing to believe Beheeyem, the player and partner journey with Beheeyem to the Prehistoric Ruins, only to find that it is a trap by Nuzleaf. Nuzleaf reveals that the player once clashed with Dark Matter as a human, which is why the Beheeyem fought them to begin with; the player's amnesia apparently happened as a result of the Beheeyem's Psychic attacks. Nuzleaf had masqueraded as an ally so he could gain the player's trust and eventually be led to the Luminous Water, and destroy it so Dark Matter's plans can continue uninterrupted. Before Nuzleaf can petrify the player a second time, Ampharos appears with Jirachi and Celebi, the latter teleporting everyone to Road to Primeval Forest, where the Tree of Life is.

Celebi confirms that Dark Matter had once threatened the world by attempting to attack the Tree of Life, which would have resulted in the planet crashing into the Sun had the tree died, but was defeated due to the combined efforts of a human and Pokémon. The player is assumed to be the same human, now brought to their present world by the power of an ancient Pokémon, Mew, to defeat Dark Matter as it has resurfaced. The Harmony Scarves worn by the player and partner were made using materials from the Tree of Life; their temporary evolutions were triggered as a result of the Tree's power.

The Tree of Life

The group makes their way to the center of the forest, discovering that the Tree of Life has already been possessed by Dark Matter and is almost completely dead. Nuzleaf, the Beheeyem and Yveltal attack the group, who manage to defeat them and wrest their minds from Dark Matter's control. However, Dark Matter steals Nuzleaf's group away and uproots the Tree of Life, causing it to rise into the sky and eventually crash into the sun. However, Arceus reaches out to the player and partner, revealing that Ampharos rallied together many allies, including Deoxys, Mega Rayquaza, and Mega Mewtwo Y, to hold the Tree of Life in place and slow its ascent, as well as a flock of various Flying Pokémon to attack the Tree from the sky. Arceus sends the player and partner to the Tree's roots; in their evolved states, the pair make their way up the Tree, also freeing Nuzleaf's group in the process and urging them to escape.

Eventually, the two discover Dark Matter at the tree's core. Dark Matter brings them into a pocket dimension, and although they manage to break Dark Matter, they fail to destroy it completely. Dark Matter intensifies its power, killing the Tree of Life and reverting the player and partner to their original forms. Dark Matter sends out waves of darkness, petrifying all the Pokémon holding the Tree in place, and taunts the player for having nothing left to fight for. However, the player and partner realize that they still have the hope to keep on living, and begin striking at Dark Matter's regenerated barrier, soon joined by Yveltal, Nuzleaf and Beheeyem who seek to atone for their misdeeds. The voices of all petrified Pokémon flow towards the player, urging them not to give up, and eventually Dark Matter's protective shield breaks. Together with the partner, the player attacks Dark Matter's core and finally defeats Dark Matter. Before the player can destroy Dark Matter, Dark Matter threatens to resurface again in the distant future; since all Pokémon have darkness in their hearts, it can never be completely destroyed. To Dark Matter's surprise, the partner accepts this outcome, because if Dark Matter is borne from everyone's negativity, Dark Matter is a part of this world, too. The player and partner shatter Dark Matter's core in a final attack, which faintly thanks the player for their actions.

The player and partner are brought back to Primeval Forest, discovering that the Tree of Life has returned as well, but this time in its fully flourished state. Xerneas appears from the Tree as its embodiment, explaining that Dark Matter has now completely gone upon finally finding peace; all the Pokémon that were turned into stone have likewise been fully restored. The player and partner return to Lively Town and Serene Village, rejoicing and celebrating with their friends. However, the player realizes that if they saved the world in the past, they probably had to return to the human world at some point. Finding that they wish to stay in the Pokémon world with their partner, the player resolves to find a way that allows them to stay.

Before the player can tell the partner of their plans, the partner admits that Xerneas came to them and restored their memories. The partner is actually a reincarnation of Mew, who fought Dark Matter with the player in the distant past. However, they actually failed in their attempt, and so devised a plan to prepare future generations in the event Dark Matter ever returned, including the Luminous Water seal atop Revelation Mountain. Mew had wiped both their memories to prevent them from making the same mistakes that led to their failure in the past, and now that Mew has fulfilled its role, the partner has to leave the player forever. Rising into the sky in a ball of light, the partner thanks the player for all the times they had together and disappears, saddening the player.


Some time later, the player has continued working for the Expedition Society but remains despondent over the partner's fate. Ampharos advises the player consult Xatu on how to restore the partner. The player finds Xatu at the Sand Dune of Spirits, who describes a vision involving Mew but claims to be unable to decipher the rest of the vision. With this lead, the player finds Mew at the Mystery Jungle, who has no recollection of its past life or any idea who the player's partner is, but decides to join the Expedition Society and work with the player. The player and Expedition Society warm up to Mew, who begins exhibiting behaviors similar to the partner's.

After a few adventures, the player wakes up at Serene Village after another episode of amnesia, eventually recalling that Mew had fallen ill; based on Ampharos and Xatu's advice, the player had taken Mew to Serene Village, but the player was attacked by unknown assailants and Mew was kidnapped. The player learns from Ampharos that Mew's abductor left a note, claiming that Mew must be sacrificed in Purifying Cave to remove the last fragments of Dark Matter still in the world. The player goes on an expedition to the dungeon to rescue Mew, finding that Nuzleaf and the Beheeyem are responsible. Nuzleaf claims that they did so to prevent Dark Matter from ever coming back, and Mew begins to glow with light and seemingly fade away. Reminded of the partner's departure, the player refuses this, not wanting to say goodbye again. At this, the player's Harmony Scarf begins glowing, combining with the light surrounding Mew, which restores the partner.

Ampharos, Mawile, and Xatu appear, admitting that the "kidnapping" was all a set-up. Xatu had already foreseen the events; the set-up was a test to prove the player's desire for the partner's return. Nuzleaf and the Beheeyem volunteered to play the role of kidnappers in order to atone for their part in the crisis. With everything resolved, the player and partner return to the Society, while Nuzleaf and Beheeyem are accepted in Serene Village as villagers, and Mew returns to Mystery Jungle but remains an ally of the player.

New features


Activating an Alliance

Alliances are team attacks that warp all other team members to surround a Pokémon, then unleash a simultaneous attack. These attacks ignore ineffective type matchups, but also deplete the belly, similar to linked moves in previous games. Preset Alliances can be unleashed by holding L and then the R button.

If the Pokémon holds an Alliance Looplet, the Pokémon can participate in an Alliance even when far away from its teammates. If the Pokémon holds a Huge Meal Looplet, the belly is not depleted by an Alliance attack.

Certain enemy Pokémon can also unleash an Alliance with other Pokémon in the room.


Main article: Connection Orb

Unlike the previous games, Pokémon do not join the team by being defeated in a dungeon. Instead, Pokémon become connected primarily by completing mission requests. These requests are displayed in the Connection Orb, which replaces the bulletin boards as the interface for taking jobs. Some Pokémon may become connected simply by speaking to them or at a certain point in the story. Some may also automatically become connected at the same time as the player connects with another Pokémon.


Main article: Looplet
Main article: Emera

Items called looplets and emeras are introduced. By putting emeras into a held looplet, Pokémon can be powered up. Any emeras obtained in a dungeon disappear when leaving it.

Mega Evolution

Mega Evolution

Main article: Mega Evolution

As the first and only entry in the series released during Generation VI, it introduces Mega Evolution to the series.

Motivated Pokémon

Motivated Pokémon is a concept introduced during Chapter 12. Motivated Pokémon earn triple the experience points as normal during missions. On certain days, a new group of three connected Pokémon become motivated. These Pokémon are revealed to the player at the start of the day, and are also listed first when selecting team members. If the three specified Pokémon are on the team together, the remaining unused Pokémon will also earn 1.28-times bonus experience points. Additionally, if an Unown is one of the three specified Pokémon and all three are brought on the expedition, all Pokémon, including non-motivated ones, will earn double the experience points as a bonus.

Other new mechanics

  • All 720 Pokémon that were officially revealed at the time are present in the game.
  • As the first entry in the series released during Generation VI, it introduces the Fairy type to the series.
  • The Progress Device allows players to save inside dungeons on any floor, instead of temporarily saving via the menu which has been removed.
  • Wands, stackable items with effects similar to orbs, are introduced.
  • In addition to returning stores, stores called Hawlucha's Slam School, Café Connection, Klefki's Rockin' Lock, Meowth Theater, and Lapras Travel Liner are available.
  • Helper Pokémon can be sent through StreetPass.
  • Instead of always getting rewards for doing a job, the player only gets rewarded on some quests.
  • More than four Pokémon can now enter a dungeon at once. However, this only counts for guest Pokémon.
  • Speed is now an available stat for Pokémon, which affects move accuracy, Gyro Ball damage, and Electro Ball damage, similar to Pokémon Conquest. It also determines how well the Pokémon evades other Pokémon's moves.
    • The number of times a Pokémon can move per turn is referred to as "Travel Speed," just like in Gates to Infinity.
  • Expeditions are now preset.
  • Gigantic Pokémon are playable and take up 9 tiles at once.
  • If the player fails an expedition (e.g. having the whole team faint and does not want to get rescued), they lose all the items and money that were in the Bag.

Returning features

  • The Deposit Box is once again present.
  • The Belly mechanic makes a return in all dungeons.
  • The personality test featured in the first two installments returns; however, the player can now choose whether or not to accept the result or pick their own Pokémon.
  • Moves once again have ranks. As a move is used, it gains progress towards the next rank. As a move ranks up, it grows in power, accuracy, and maximum PP. Status moves and Struggle do not have ranks, and moves with set damage or moves that do damage based on factors such as the target's remaining HP (such as Wring Out) can rank up, but cannot increase in power. The increase is permanent and carry over to other teammate's with the same move.
  • Hostile Pokémon are once again able to evolve inside certain dungeons after defeating another Pokémon.
  • A Jukebox feature allows players to listen to music from the games and even previous titles in the series, like in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky.
  • TMs are once again one-use items.
    • The player can instead find rare Rainbow TMs that are infinite-use.
  • Party size limitations for certain Pokémon based on body size, such as Onix and Wailord, as well as many Legendary Pokémon, return.
  • Pelipper Island can be used to rescue the player or others using Wonder Mail.

    • Additionally, some stages from previous games are also mentioned or revisited, such as Destiny Tower and Wish Cave.
Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.
