You've caught them, you've trained them and you've battled them – but now you can find out what it's actually like to be a Pokémon!
In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team, you wake up in a world inhabited entirely by Pokémon, as a Pokémon yourself, with no knowledge of how you got there or how you can return to human form.
But perhaps there's a reason for your arrival. Now that you can understand the Pokémon language, you learn that a series of natural disasters is threatening the community. You soon befriend another Pokémon and form a Rescue Team to help Pokémon in distress.
You receive missions to rescue Pokémon trapped in dangerous dungeons, which are always randomly generated (meaning that you'll never play the same dungeon twice), battling wild Pokémon using a turn-based style of combat.
As well as taking on missions deep underground you also have a vast overworld to explore, where you can make friends with hundreds of Pokémon and recruit new members to your team.
In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, having fun and making friends is just as important as fighting. So assemble your best Rescue Team and discover your destiny as a Pokémon!
Please note: Communication features of the original game, such as Multi-Pak Link and Single Pak Link, are not available in the Wii U Virtual Console version. This game supports one player on Wii U Virtual Console.
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is a spin-off to main Pokemon series, and while it is the same on surface, being pokemon, the similarity ends here. It is dungeon cralwer RPG, where you play as pokemon (and not a trainer) with all of genre downsides, being extremely repetitive with quests and grinding. Thankfuly, that's where the bad ends, although it is a shame that it is gameboy advance version and not DS, which had more features. Graphics are really nice and soundtrack is stellar (maybe even best in the series) with diverse cast of pokemon characters and colorful locations. If you're pokemon fan, you should pick this game up, because it is great fun to play, just prepare for some grinding.
