There are a few shops here that will become very useful in this game. Kecleon Market-Buys and sells items. The green Kecleon deals with common items, while the purple one sells orbs and TMs. COST: varies depending on what you're buying. Duskull Bank-Holds on to your money so you do not lose it in dungeons. COST: free Kangaskahn Storage-Holds on to extra items so you do not lose them in dungeons. COST: free Xatu Appraisal-Opens any treasure boxes you might find on an adventure and gives you the item inside. COST: 150p Chansey Daycare-Takes care of eggs you recieve as rewards. COST: free Marowak Dojo-Home to small dungeons for you to train in. COST: all items in the treasure bag. If your treasure Bag is empty, you get in free. Electivire Link Shop-Links moves to be used in one turn and reteaches forgotten moves. COST: 500p But the most important place in the game is Wigglytuff's guild. You and your partner live here. It also has the Job Bulletin Board and Outlaw Notice Board, which is where you get your missions. It also has the following shops (eventually): Croagunk Swap Shop-swaps a set of certain items for another rare item. COST: 150p Chimecho Assembly-allows you to put other recruited pokemon on the team. Can be reached from the sign at the crossroads too. COST: free _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ -Mystery Dungeons [TMD] Alot of the game takes place in Dungeons too. This is where you carry out jobs and battle outlaws, among other things. Beware, hostile pokemon also live in dungeons. This is how my dungeon summaries are set up. Dungeon Name Floors: X Enemies _________________ Floors |1|2|3|4|5| Pokemon|X|X|X| | | Pokemon| |X|X|X| | Pokemon| | |X|X|X| _________________| DUNGEON END: This part shows what happens after the first time you finish a dungeon. It could be just a cutscene, or you may need to fight a boss. *X marks in the above chart show a floor where the pokemon in that row appears. That's how to read my dungeon summaries. Oh, and to pick up an item, walk over it. Advance to the next floor by stepping on the stairs tile. Wonder tiles normalize your stats. Traps do bad stuff. And if you or your partner faints, you get kicked out, lose your money, and some items. In the menu, select rest to quicksave before shutting down the game. And thats it. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ -Battles [TB] When you are near an enemy, it may attack you. You must learn to fight back. Press the A button to use a regular attack. Go into the menu, select moves, select a move, and press use to use it. Go into the menu, select items, pick an item, and pick use to use it on yourself or a team member. When you get the enemy to zero HP, you win the battle and everyone gets Exp. And that's it for battles. _______________________________________________________________________________ Walkthrough [SC04] Just a quick reminder that this walkthrough contains spoilers. Chapter 1: A Storm At Sea [CH01] You start the game by taking a personality test to figure out what Pokemon you will become. The list is as follows, but some are only availible to a cerain gender: Bulbasaur(lonely), Chikorita, Treeko, Turtwig, Charmander, Cyndaquil, Torchic, Squirtle(quirky), Totodile, Midkip, Piplup, Pikachu, Skitty, Eevee, and Munchlax. (cutscene) You hear shouting and it sounds like something bad's happening. You scream as a bright light fills the screen(I think it was you screaming at least). You fall into a stormy ocean, then wash up on the beach. You try to get up, but slowly black out. (cutscene) You see a Pokemon outside a Wigglytuff-shaped tent, deciding whether to go in or not. They step on a hole with a grate over it, and hear voices from below! They quickly step off the grate. Even with their Treasure, a relic fragment, this Pokemon just can't get enough courage to go in there. They sadly decide to leave. By now you may have realized this is the same Pokemon you chose as a Partner. But what's this? After they leave, a Zubat and a Koffing talk about trying to steal the relic fragment! Oh no! (cutscene) Your Partner is at the beach feeling sorry for him/herself and admiring the view. They see you zonked out. You finally wake up, and realize you're a Pokemon! And all you can remember is that you're a human, and your your name, which you enter now. Then Zubat and Koffing knock over your partner and steal the Relic Fragment. Follow them! *MAIN TASK: Get back the Relic Fragment at the bottom of the cave. Beach Cave Floors: 4 Enemies ________________ Floors |1|2|3|4| Shellder|X| |X|X| Shellos |X|X|X|X| Kabuto |X|X|X|X| Corsola | |X|X| | ________________| BEACH CAVE PIT: (cutscene) Your partner asks if they can have the relic fragment back. Zubat and Koffing both say no. The only way now is a battle. Boss: Zubat and Koffing Difficulty: Easy Notes: Keep grass types away from Zubat, it can use leech life. (cutscene) Now that you beat those guys, they run off. Wimps. Now your partner is very happy to get the relic fragment back. After much thanking, you return to the beach. (cutscene) More thanking, and it's starting to get old. Your partner shows you the Relic Fragment now. Cool, huh? Your partner really likes legends. And now his own legend begins, with you there with him. And you two go off to the Wigglytuff tent. POKEMON MYSTERY DUNGEON: EXPLORERS OF TIME/DARKNESS After that opening thing disappears. Select yes from the new message that comes up afterward to save. You should save whenever you see a message like this. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Chapter 2: The New Guild Recruits [CH02] (cutscene) This is Wigglytuff's Guild. When you arrive here, your partner steps on the grate and the voices come one more. How do they know you're with him/her? Anyway, now it's your turn to step on the grate. Digglet, the sentry, can't identify you. Time to go in. Wow! It's bigger than you would think, hm? Now, a Chatot invites you to the Guild, and your partner tells him that you're registering your Exploration Team. On the next floor, you meet Guildmaster Wigglytuff. How this guy became Guildmaster, I don't know. Now, name your team. Now, you get a treasure bag that can carry sixteen items, a bow matching your aura, and a random stat item. Now, this is your room. The bed on the right is where you sleep, and you can save your game here at any time. The two of you talk about how great this is, then you go to sleep. (cutscene) They next morning, you get a rude awakening from Loudred. Now it's time for your first day. Outside, the other apprentices are all ready for the day. Now for morning breifing. Is Guildmastr awake or not? Now for morning cheers! 1. DON'T SHIRK WORK! 2. RUN AWAY AND PAY! 3. SMILES GO FOR MILES! *Task: walk away. Chatot brings you to the upper floor and the Job Bulletin Board. Basic jobs are posted here. Apparently, the flow of time is messed up, so bad Pokemon are appearing. Also there is a massive outbreak of Mystery dungeons. Now for your job. "Hello! My name is Spoink! An oulaw has run off with my most prized possesion. My precious pearl. That pearl is life itself... to me! I just can't seem to settle down if that So from this letter, you can tell what pearl isn't in its proper i'm gonna type next, no matter how mad place atop my head! But it makes your partner. I've heard my pearl has *MAIN TASK: Go to Drenched Bluff and get been sighted! It's said Spoink's pearl. to be on a rocky bluff. But this bluff is reported to be extremely unsafe.

Spoink is happy to get back it's pearl! Spoink gives you a Protein, a Calcium, an Iron, and 2000p! Wow! You are so lucky to get that much money, but WHAT? It seems the guild gets most of it and you only get 10%. That stinks. DINNER TIME! What a good meal. Time for bed now. That night, you and your partner talk more about guild life. Then you go to sleep. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Chapter 3: The Scream [CH03] You start with morning breifing. *Task: Walk away. (cutscene) Chatot brings you to the other bulletin board this time, the Outlaw Notice Board. All the Pokemon here are outlaws, and when you take a mission from this board, it is to defeat an outlaw. But first, you need to go to Treasure Town to get ready. A fellow apprentice, Bidoof, will automatically take you to Treasure Town after showing you around the Guild. *Duskull Bank, Kecleon Market, and Kangaskhan Storage are now open. *Task: Go to Kecleon Market. You can use the other shops while you're here too. (cutscene) Marill and Azurill come to buy an apple, and the kind Kecleon Brothers give them another one for free. It seems these young children come shopping in place of their mother, how sweet. Azurill drops the extra apple, and you pick it up for him. Then you start to feel dizzy... \ / \ -----------------------------O----------------------------------------------> / \ / H-h-h...HELP! O Wow that was weird. And then you think at was Azurill that screamed! He's fine though. Now the brothers go look for their lost item, whatever that is. You and your partner wonder what that sound was, then go to find Bidoof. *Task: go back to Treasure Town's entrance. (cutscene) Back at the square, you see Marill and Azurill talking to someone. Aparrently this Drowzee has seen their lost item, and has offered to help find it! Wow! As they leave, Drowzee bumps into you by mistake. Then you feel dizzy again... \ / \ ------------------------------O----------------------------------------------> / \ / Drowzee: If you keep being difficult, it will mean big trouble for you! Azurill: H-h-h...HELP! O What was that? Drowzee threatening Azurill? We have to help! But your partner doesn't believe you, so we have to go back to Bidoof. *Task: Go to Bidoof at the Outlaw Notice Board. The guild is north(^) of the crossroads east(>) of here. (cutscene) You look at the pictures of the outlaws, and the board flips over! Dugtrio is updating the data, and then it flips back over. Your partner starts to tremble. What's wrong? Drowzee is on the board! Oh no! We have to help Marill and Azurill! You see Marill outside the guild. Drowzee went off with Azurill alone. This is bad. Marill shows you where they went. *MAIN TASK: Rescue Azurill. Mt.

Boss: Drowzee Difficulty: Medium Notes: Drowzee can use his ability forewarn to dodge attacks and can put you to sleep. (cutscene) with Drowzee knocked out, you rescue Azurill and return to the entrance to the dungeon. Officer Magnezone thanks you and you go to the guild. With the brothers reunited, all is well, and you get a new treasure bag that holds twenty-four items and 300p. Time for dinner. (cutscene) There's a storm tonight, like the night you passed out on the beach. But it's still time for bed. Your partner thinks the visions have something to do with your past. Which is what, exactly? And the whole messed up time thing has something to do with Time Gears. There are five of these, hidden in secret places around the world. And one just got stolen! Anyway, on to another day. Today, you get to see what a normal day is like in the guild. First, morning breifing, then Chatot will tell you what you have to do. Then go upstairs and pick out a mission or two if that's all you need to to do. Then go to treasure town to get ready, then save, then go off to a dungeon, east(>) from the crossroads, and that's a normal day. *Task: Complete 3 mssions. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Chapter 4: The Gatekeepers [CH04] (cutscene) After morning breifing you are called over by Loudred. He wants you to cover for Diglett in the Sentry Post. After he explains Sentry duty to you, you play a the minigame. You do this a few times in the story, and whenever you want after a certain point. You'll get a reward based on your performance. MAIN TASK: Cover for Diglett performing sentry duty. The next day, it's back to regular Guild work for you. *Task: Complete 2 Missions _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Chapter 5: The First Official Exploration [CH05] (cutscene) Chatot has an important announcement: Time has stopped in a place called Treeshroud Forest! Is that even possible? Yes. You remember when Chatot told you the flow of time is messed up? Why has time stopped there? The Time Gear's been taken! On that happy note, you're getting your first real job today! Chatot beleives that the waterfall holds a secret. MAIN T... ok, who wants to talk to you NOW? Go upstairs. (cutscene) Chimecho's behind a desk to the right. Chimecho rings the Friendship Bell, and now you can add members to your team. Wild Pokemon might ask to join you if you (NOT YOUR PARTNER OR ANYONE ELSE) defeat them in battle. NOW I can type this without interruption. MAIN TASK: Investigate the Waterfall. * Marowak Dojo is open for buisness. Talk to Marowak inside for information on how the Dojo works. Secret Waterfall (cutscene) Your Partner Gets hurt walking into the waterfall, it goes so fast. You try it, and get the same result. Only when you do it, you start to get dizzy... \ / \ ---------------------------------------0--------------------------------------> / \ / A dark shape of a pokemon jumps into the waterfall and wanders into a cave... Your partner wonders about this vision, and you agree to jump in together. Well what do you know? There really is a cave back here! Why don't we have a look around?

There's a huge one in the back, but it won't come out. Darn. After you try to pull it out, you start to fell the symptoms of another vision... \ / \ ---------------------------------------0--------------------------------------> / \ / The dark shape from the previous vision pushes the gem in, and gets rushed out by a flood! Your Partner still can't get the gem to budge. He pushes it. Uh-oh! You get shot out of a geyser and land in a hot spring. There are some Pokemon from Treasure Town here, along with a Torkoal. You rest there before going back to the guild. (cutscene) You explain what you found to Chatot, who tells you that you've made a discovery! Awesome! But, you realize that, the shadow you saw, is Wigglytuff. But if he knew about it, he wouldn't have made you go there. Chatot checks just in case. When he comes back, the Guildmastrer had said: "Oh, memories! Sweet memories! YOOM...TAH!" Danced around, and said, "Yes, Yes! When I think hard, maybe I did go there once!" Honestly, sometimes I just don't know about that Wigglytuff. (cutscene) You and your Partner talk for a while, and he said that being with you makes him brave. Then he realizes that you always touch something before having a vision. and he also notices that your voisions can be either of the past or the future. Then wigglytuff wants to see you. (cutscene) Wigglytuff tells you that he's planning an expidition! And you might go! Nice job getting this far. I'm going to leave the guide, here, but expect an update soon.
