You can meet and recruit Pokémon in a dungeon-crawling adventure within their world! Build a rescue team to take on mysterious, changing dungeons and strategically plan your moves as you venture forth to make the Pokémon world a safer place…and uncover your true purpose along the way. As you recruit Pokémon, these trusty teammates will need somewhere to stay, so build camps to house, manage, and strengthen your Pokémon friends. Think hard about who is right for the job and how to approach each mysterious dungeon as you prepare a rescue team. You'll move a single square at a time or use Auto mode to speed up movement until you engage other Pokémon in turn-based battles—but don't forget about Pokémon strengths and weaknesses! This version adds gorgeous watercolor-inspired graphics, and more! Get comfortable in being a Pokémon, there's a lot of work to do.

The music is super nostalgic. It’s much like the originals but with an added “pop”. I don’t know how they took the originals and made them better, but they did.
The sprites are very nice. A couple of tiny complaints include Eevee’s run cycle and Ekans in general. I adore most other sprites.
I also like the added dialogue and animations. Absol was one of my favorites in the original and I’ve heard that he’s been given additional dialogue. Also, all of Zapdos’s animations were superb.
I would highly recommend this game to new and old mystery dungeon fans alike. I had high hopes for this, as I was very disappointed in SWSH. I can 100% say this remake has surpassed my expectations and I do not regret buying it.
One disappointment is that, while the Pokemon are smarter (both partner and foe) the partner Pokemon still lack some practicality. For example, I had recruited a few Pokemon in an early dungeon, and I lead my team through a hallway. However, an enemy entered the room that still contained a couple of my teammates. Even though the game added the element that your team actually follows the leader (which is great) and does not engage in every single battle, the enemy Pokemon began to use distance attacks against my team. The Pokemon that it was hitting did not move or try to get out of the way. It just stood there and fainted. So, even though the AI has improved drastically since the first games that these are based off of, it still falls a tiny bit short in this area and a few others.
However, those points are minor and the game is great and is a very well done update/refresh on a classic that still maintains the integrity of the classic while adding many small modern features that take advantage of the updates of computers. Definitely one to buy, and I hope they come out with similar updated games for one or more of the rest of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series!
That’s not true.
I personally don’t have an interest in the “roguelike” subgenre, apart from The Binding of Isaac. But here I am enjoying this game. Sure, it’s not your traditional Pokémon game. That’s fine.
Why I love this game:
- It’s super chill. Great for turning your brain off after a long day at work.
- The artstyle and music give it a very whimsical feel.
- Despite the cheesy dialogue, the game is very immersive and you feel like you’re there.
- The game doesn’t take itself too seriously. It kinda feels like you’re in a Saturday morning cartoon of yore.
But that’s just me. If you’re on the fence due to the game being a “roguelike,” I strongly recommend you try the free demo first. The save data from the demo can carry over to the full game should you decide to purchase it.
