So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

3.- WELCOME TO THIS FAQ!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Hi guys! Let me introduce myself first. I'm Carlos Knox but mynickname is
CarlosPit. I'm 15 and I live in Peru (That's why you may find some
grammar mistakes in this guide). I'm a huge Pokemon Fan. I've played
both Pokemon D/P and Mystery Dungeon Series. I love both of them.
Since I enjoyed Blue Rescue Team a lot, I decided to buy this one.
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Darkness. And, since there are
no "Step by Step" guide, I decided to make one. In this one, you'll find
what to do in each part of the game. STEP BY STEP! So, please enjoy
this walkthrough!

Please, this is the First Time I'm going through the game, so be patient
with me and with the updates, because while I play I have to take notes,
so it takes long. But don't worry, I'll give my 100%.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Note: Instead of Saying "The Hero" I'll say YOU, cause in this
game you're the hero.*

=============
7.1 Getting Started
=============

Turn on your Nintendo DS and choose New Game. Then you'll have
to answer a questionaire, this will determine your personality. You'll
also be asked to put your finger on the screen so they can detect
your aura. Put either the tip of your finger or the stylus for about
10 seconds and then stop. A Pokemon will be assigned according
to your personality. If you don't like what you got, there's a nice
guide in GameFaqs about Starter Pokemons. Anyway, back to MY
guide, when you're happy with what you got as Starter, you'll need
to choose a Partner. This Pokemon will help you during the story.
Remember that you can't have two pokemons of the same type.
IE: You can't be a Charmander and have Chimchar as your partner,
since both of you are fire types. I chose Chimchar as Starter and
Piplup as partner. But it's up to you.


========================
7.2 CHAPTER 1: STORMY SEA
========================

On the screen you'll see someone talking, suddenly the screen
will turn white. When you have vision again, you'll see a rock that
looks like a sharpedo. Then you'll see a quiet beach. Conclusion:
you'll see pictures. Finally, when you stop watching images, you'll
see your Main Pokemon at the shore of the beach. He can't even
get up. After that, you'll see your Partner in front of a building.
He'll say something about being brave, and stand on a grate, but
immediately step off. He's afraid of it for some reason. He feels
dissapointed because he even had his personal treasure to give
him courage. He's so dissapointed he leaves to his relax spot.
What your partner didn't know, was that Zubat and Koffing were
listening to everything he was saying and they heard about his
personal treasure and they decide to get it.

Again, you'll see some images. A beautiful beach and lots of
bubbles, these are produced by Krabbies. Your partner
appears and says the reason why the Krabbies appeared,
which I can't remember at the moment 'cause I pressed A
before I took note.

Your partner then realized there was something weird by
the other side of the shore. When he goes to check, he found
you! He asks if you're ok but you don't reply. You finally get up
and your partner feels relieved. You ask yourself where are
you, but you don't remember at all what happened. Your partner
will introduce himself. He asks for your name. That's when you
have to choose a nickname. I reccomend using a nickname
because I don't think it would be nice if there existed a
Pokemon with your name. I chose Timatria. You will also say
that you're not a Pokemon! You're a human! When you tell this
to your partner he thinks you're a liar but later he thinks you're
saying the truth and he feels sorry for doubting. He also says
that the Bad Pokemon number has increased lately. Suddenly,
Zubat and Koffing hit your partner and his treasure fell in the
ground.They pick it up and say your partner is way too
coward to make a move and they take off. That treasure
means everything to your partner so he wants it back and he
asks you for help. Accept to his request and you'll head to
your first dungeon of Explorers of Darkness.

MINI-BOSS BATTLE:

Zubat + Koffing

-----------------------------------------------

HostleX team:

Level (IN):

Timatria = 5
Dinasty = 5

Level (OUT):

Timatria = 6
Dinasty = 6

------------BEACH CAVE----------------


When you reach Beach Cave Pit, you'll meet Zubat and Koffing.
They'll keep calling your partner a coward. They intend to sell
it. Want it back? Fight for it! After u beat them, they will return
the treasure and run away. Your Partner will say thanks and you
guys will return to the beach.

Once you're there, your partner will explain you about the
treasure he has. It's called Relic Fragment. He gives a LOT of
information, so enjoy...

He also tells you that he always wanted to be in an exploration
team. He tried joining one, but he chickened out. He asks you
what are you going to do. Let's see, you're a human in a Pkmn
body... what are you supposed to do? Maybe a picnic? NO!
You have no idea what to do! So, your Partner asks you if you
want to form and exploration team with him. He has a lot of
confidence. He's sure that team would pwn. If you decline,
he will beg you. So just accept. As a matter of fact you only
accept because you want to know why did you become a
pokemon. Your partner says you gus have to go with
Wigglytuff to sign up as exploration team. Training will be
tough... But do your best!!


"And so, Dinasty and Timatria formed and Exploration Team.
This turned out to be their very first step into many fantastic
realms of adventure that await their arrival"


AND NOW ENJOY.............

POKEMON MYSTERY DUNGEON EXPLORERS OF DARKNESS+

Starring: YOU

:::Save Point:::


====================================
7.3 CHAPTER 2: THE NEW GUILD RECRUITS
====================================

You'll see Wigglytuff's guild as soon as you can see
again. You must register there to have an Exploration Team.
You gotta train until you become First Rate Explorers. Your
Partner starts chickening out again, but he decides to be
brave ´cause you're next to him now. He steps on the Grate
and his footprints get scanned. He's still afraid, but he's
allowed to go in.

"Partner must step on the grave too"

"..."

"That's you idiot!"

Uh... ok! Step on the grate, but they won't be able to
be sure about which pokemon are you. But who cares...
come on in! There's a hatch leading underground. You go
down. Woah! So many Pokemons!! It's Wigglytuff's guild!
You'll see a Chatot appear. He's Wigglytuff's right hand.
He thinks you guys are salespersons. Your partner will
clarify that you want to become an Exploration Team.
He finds it weird 'cause usually young pokemons do not
tend to make an Exploration Team because the training is
tough... but I DON'T KNOW WHY... he changed his mind...
and said training is a piece of cake. Oh well, who cares.
You're about to meet the GuildMaster! Be Nice! Always
say Please and Thanks!!

You'll meet Wigglytuff and asks you the name you want
for your Exploration Team. I chose HostleX ´cause... it
sounds kewl. W/e you choose, it's going to be a good
name for your partner. REMEMBER that the word TEAM
is automatically put before your name, so don't make the
silly mistake to choose "FlameTeam" as your team's
name because it would be "Team FlameTeam". Ohhh,
Blue Rescue Team Memories...

Back to Explorers of Darkness... Once you say the
name you want, your team will now be OFFICIAL!
Yay! Now you will receive your Pkmn Exploration Team
Kit which contains:

Explorer Badge: Team ID
Wonder Map: Just a Map, they added the word Wonder
Treasure Bag: It's the Bag where you carry the items
you get in dungeons. 16 Items max atm.

Inside your Treasure Bag you'll find a Defense Scarf
and a Silver Bow which are pretty kewl items.

Now you're an official apprentice, you gotta train your ass off.
After that, Chatot will show you guys your room and your ... wait
...there's gotta be a mistake... WHAT? Those are our beds?!?!?!?
What are we chickens? (Sorry Torchic). Oh well, as long as we
are inside the guild.

While you're trying to sleep, your partner will start talking... a LOT.
He says how cool it is that you guys are already in the guild bla
bla bla. But you start wondering why did you become a Pkmn and
what the hell you're doing there. You're too tired to think about it.

::Save Point::

TIP: From now on, you can save your game by climbing on your
bed.


Next Morning, an annoying voice will FORCE you to get up. It's
Loudred (Yesh, indeed. He's loud) Loudred say you guys better get
up 'cause Wigglytuff (From now on we'll call him WT), may sound
cool, but he can get mad. And, oh man, we don't want that right? So
you better hurry! After that you'll see like an assembly. After that
the apprentices will start singing a tacky song. Now it's time to work!

As soon as you try to go somewhere, Chatot will talk to you. And you
will follow wherever he goes. He'll head to the Bulletin Board. He'll
talk about the evil pokemons that are appearing in the world apparently
'cause the time got whacked. That also caused a mass outbreak of
mystery dungeons. Your partner will explain you what the Mystery
Dungeons are. When he stops talking, Chatot will look for an easy job
for you.

Your first job is rescuing a pearl that belongs to Spoink. Your partner
will think that it is way too lame, he wants to go for treasures. But do
you think WT cares? No. You gotta go 'cause you're a rookie.

When you reach the seventh floor, you'll see the pearl and get it. Somehow,
you're back in WT's guild again and have Chatot in front of you. Spoink will
be very thankful and give you:

-Protein
-Calcium
-Iron
-3000 Coins

Wow! 3000 Coins! Unfortunately, you won't get them! That's right! ALL THE
MONEY goes to Wigglytuff. That big fat bastard... Well, let's be fair. You
can keep 200 coins... yay...

Then you'll see Chimecho announcing that the dinner's ready and you'll see
a lot of munch munch munch...

Again, when your trying to sleep, your partner will start talking alone. He'll
say how cool it was when you got thanked by Spoink and then he'll finally
fall asleep.



========================
7.4 CHAPTER 3: THE SCREAM
========================

Next Morning... Loudred Again

::Save Point::

Routine: Go out of the room! Sing the Tacky Song! Work time!

Talk to Chatot and he will ask you guys to follow him. You guys will go to
the bulletin board, but this time he heads to the Outlaw's Board. That
means Bad Pokemons who are wanted. Before he assigns you a mission,
Chatot will call Bidoof so he can give you guys a tour for you guys to know
everything.

Bidoof will explain you everything about the Guild Room and the Treasure
Town, but everything is even better explained in your Instruction Booklet.
I will not cover this part. C'mon just read your Instruction Booklet... u lazy
ass.

Bidoof says he will be waiting you guys by the Outlaw Board. Before that,
head to Kecleon's Brothers Shop. Talk to him and then close it. Don't buy.
Marill Team (Azurill+Marill) will appear and buy an apple. Kecleon will tell
you guys that their mother is sick. Immediately after that, Azurill appears
again saying he found an extra apple in his bag and he can't afford it, but
Kecleon is one nice Pokemon so he let Azurill keep it for free, but when
Azurill is leaving he fall down and the extra apple too. You pick it up, but
when you return it, you have a terrible headache. And you hear Azurill
screaming...

" H - h - h... HELP!!"

Unfortunately, you were the only one who listened it and Azurill was right
in front of you, so you probably were daydreaming. Of course, you're
prolly sleepy since Loudred woke you up so damn early right?

When Azurill leaves, follow him and you'll see the Marill Team talking with
a Drowzee that looks pretty cool and nice. Marill Team will explain you
that they've lost an important item for them and Drowzee's going to help
them find it. Cool!

But when they are going to the montains to look for the item, Drowzee
bumped with you and you had another vision...


Drowzee: "Talking won't help you... you're going to get hurt now!"
Azurill: "H... help!!"

You tell your partner what you saw, but he convinces you that you
probably were daydreaming again, since that Drowzee looked like a
really kewl pokemon.

What now? Oh yea... Bidoof... Zomg poor bidoof! He's still waiting! xD
Hurry! To the Outlaw Board!!

When you get to the Outlaw Board, Bidoof will ask you what kind of
Outlaw you want. Your partner, showing how brave he is, asks for
one that is not too scary...

When Bidoof is about to choose one... the Outlaw Board flips, that
means it's updating, so you'll have to wait a little bit. He'll explain that
updating the board is Dugtrio's job and even though is not noticed,
it's really important. When the update is over, your partner starts
shivering out of nowhere... You know why? Do you? No Idea? Could it
be? YES!! Drowzee! Outlaw!! Meanie!! Without thinking, you guys will
run to save Azurill. When you're heading to the mountains, you'll meet
with Marill., which is afraid because he got lost while they were exploring
the mountains. He started calling Drowzee's and Azurill's names, but he
got no reply. He'll show you where was the last time he saw them, so,
are you ready? I hope you are 'casue it is rescue time!!!


7.4.2 BOSS BATTLE: DROWZEE


---------------------MT. BRISTLE------------------------

Floors:

7 Floors

----------------------------------------------------------------

Pokemons:

Lileep
Anorith
Shellos
Chingling

----------------------------------------------------------------

Notes:

*Be level 7/8 when you go in
*Be careful with quick attack
*I was level 9 and my partner got pwned,
so check your partner too!
*Foes HP: No more than 45

-----------------------------------------------------------------

BOSS BATTLE:

Drowzee

HP: No more than 100

Strategy:

If you have any seed that inflicts paralysis or
make the foe sleep, USE IT! It would be really
helpful! When he's asleep, use ONLY attacks
that inflict damage. Make sure your partner
too. If you follow this strategy, Drowzee'll
be gone before you can say Carlos Knox!

----------------------------------------------------------------

HostleX team:

Level (IN):

Timatria = 8/9
Dinasty = 8/9

Level (OUT):

Timatria = 10
Dinasty = 10

--------------------MT. BRISTLE-------------------------


Drowzee will be very shocked when he see you guys, but your partner
will start shivering so he realized he's afraid. He has no idea you guys
kick his ass! He has no idea you guys are reading MY walkthrough! Ha!
Pwned!

When Drowzee's pwned, you'll talk to Azurill to make sure he is fine. He is.
When you're returning home, you'll meet Magnezone Team (Magnezone +
2 Magnemite). Magnezone is like the sheriff of that zone and the
magnemites are holding Drowzee so he won't escape. They'll be very
thankful and they'll say that the money will be sent to your Guild. Sniff,
Bye Bye Money! When the Magnezone Team is gone, Marill Team will
say thanks and give a big bug *Sniff Sniff* Love happy endings!


"Exploration Team Federation has sent a message...
Timatria's Team was awarded with an enlarged Treasure Bag!"


You'll appear in the guild (How?) and Chatot will inform you guys that
he received the money, 3000 Coins, but WT's part is 2700...

So... 3000-27000= 300... Yay?

But... how come you were able to predict what was going to happen?
Are you an Alakazam? Weird...

It's dark outside and you wanna sleep, but your talkative partner will
start talking about the storm. Then he will ask you if you remember
something before you were a Pokemon, but you don't. He thinks there's
some kind of relation between your dream and you (Duh)

Then he'll start talking about Time Gears. These are hidden in forests,
underground caverns and even Volcanoes! They have an important
function, which is protect time and keep time flowing properly in it's
region. If one of this is taken away, time would probably stop running
in that zone.

You'll see a new image, a Pokemon, you know which one is it?
Yup, Grovile (I don't know if it's always Grovile) and looks like he is
going to steal a Time Gear! Was he able to steal it? We don't know...

::Save Point::

Wake Up, Routine, Hooray! Chatot will assign you a job. Go
downstairs and check the Job/Outlaw Bulletin. Choose any job, I'm
pretty sure the ones I get are not the same ones you get, but still,
I'll post the ones I did and if I had any difficulties.

*Reccomendation: Stay with Level C missions atm*

*When I post 3 Missions, that means that in no more than 3 days
you'll be able to go on with the storyline."

=======================


After sleeping and doing the rutine, Loudred will call you two guys, then
Digglet ask you guys if you can do his Sentry Duty because he gotta help
Dugtrio in his updating job. You obviously accept. The game is fairly easy,
you get to see the footprint of a Pokemon in the upper screen of your DS.
In the other screen you'll have 4 options and you gotta decide from which
Pokemon those footprints belong. Consider it a Mini-Game 'cause if you
don't do it ok, it's not important during the storyline. Still, try to do it ok
because you can get nice items if you have more than 5k of score.

By this time, you obviously have Bronze Rank already. What's good with this?
You can now have up to 96 items in you Storage. Yay.

===========================================
7.6 CHAPTER 5: THE FIRST OFFICIAL EXPLORATION
===========================================

After you get up, Chatot will make an announcement for all the guild. He'll say
that in a place named Treeshroud Forest, a Time Gear has been stolen. Chatot
says that Magnezone has started the investigations because if one was stolen,
than means many Time Gears can be stolen. Everyone seems worried about it.
When all of them go to work, Chatot will assign you two guys your first official
exploration. Apparently there's a waterfall nearby and he wants you to explore
it. Yay! No time to lose! Well, we can make an exception for Chimecho. He'll
call you when you go downstairs. He'll explain you that he has started an
assembly, which means you can now recruit other Pokemon! So, your
Exploration Team will be bigger and bigger! How does this works? When you
defeat Pokemons, some of them will respect you and, therefore, will want to
join your Exploration Team. You can either accept them or refuse to their
request. He'll explain you the basics, even though I already did.

Also, if you go to Treasure Town, you'll see that Marowak's Dojo is now open!
Let's go take a look! Awww, Marowak has no clients at all... But YAY! Since
you guys were his first clients, he will let you guys get in for free. Marowak
will explain you that when you enter to his Practice Dungeons, you'll lose all
the items that were in your inventory, so you should probably store them
before you train. Coins are safe tho.

Anyway... Let's head to Waterfall! Prepare your inventory. When you go there
you'll see a big waterfall in front of you. It's soo strong you can't even stand
close to it. Your partner tells you to try it but the waterfall is a strong one
so you get pushed by it. After that, you have a vision. According to your
vision, if you jump towards the waterfall, you can trespass it and get
to a hidden cave. Your partner trusts you, and there you go! Zomg!!!
It was true! You get to a totally new Dungeon! Welcome to Waterfall Cave!

-------------------------------------------------------

-----------------WATERFALL CAVE----------------------


When you get to the Gem Zone (Name invented by me!), you'll see a giant
gem stucked in the wall. Your partner thinks that if you guys take it, it would
be awesome. He tries to get it but he can't because it's REALLY stucked.
Your partner says you should give it a shot. You'll try to, but you have no
success. After trying, you have ANOTHER vision. A Pokemon trying to get
the gem but when the gem started moving, a giant wave came. As soon as
you finish having your vision you'll see your partner saying "Hey! It's moving"
... Damn it. A Huge wave is coming! You try to escape, but your legs are
way too short, so the wave got you guys, but hey... at least now you
know how it feels to fly. You'll land in a place called Hot Springs. These hot
waters are good for you to recover yout tired muscles and creaky joins.
Torkoal will show you were is Hot Springs located in the Wonder Map.
You guys decide to stay there so you can recover.

::Save Point::

Back in the guild, you will explain what happened in the Waterfalls. Chatot
considers it a MAJOR, HUGE discovery! You should be happy, but you're
not, because you're still thinking in the vision you had. The shape of that
Pokemon looked familiar... Yes... No doubt about it.. WIGGLYTUFF!
You tell your partner that you had a vision where WT intended to take
the gem. Your partner tells the same to Chatot and he thinks that has no
sense at all Still, he decided to ask WT about it, even though he has no
idea why would some rookies accept they were not the ones who
discovered the dungeon. Oh well, immediately Chatot will say that,
indeed, WT had already been there. Actually, WT said something like:
"Yes, I think so... YOOOMTAH!!!!". We guess he tried to say yes.

Time to sleep... or not? You're trying to sleep but your comprehensive
partner will start talking. He says that his dream is to solve the mistery
of his Relic Fragment. He also realizes that every time you had a vision,
is because you touched it. But hey, it's true! Drowzee, the Waterfall, the
Gem. Here's something tricky. You saw the future in Drowzee's case, but
you saw the past in the Waterfall/Gem one. Weird huh? When you finally
are about to sleep, Chatot will show up saying Wigglytuff wants to talk
with you and your partner. Wigglytuff will tell you and your partner that he
plans to make an expedition soon. Usually, rookies are not even
considered in this expeditions, but you guys have done an awesome job,
so they decide to take you guys in consideration. But, beware! You're
still not in the expedition. You guys are candidates... so work your asses
off the next few weeks.


=======================
7.7 CHAPTER 6: TEAM SKULL
=======================

Next Morning. Loudred.

::Save Point::

Chatot will inform all the guild that there's going to be the Lake Expedition.
Everyone seems happy. Haha! Suckers! You guys already know :)
Well, it's work time. So, let's check the Bulletin Board.

Whn you go to the Job Board area, you'll see Koffing and Zubat. They are
an exploration team... Team Skull! They wonder what the hell are you guys
doing there, so you tell him you are a Exploration Team too. They want to
talk alone with your partner. They keep telling your partner that he's a
coward, but he tells them that they are here to train. Koffing and Zubat call
their chief, Skuntank. That's right! Zubat + Koffing + Skuntank = Skull Team.
Skuntank uses a weird attack (Let's call it the Stunky Attack), after making
all the place suck, they leave. W/e they suck! Haha! Got it? They used an
attack that sucked, so they suck! Haha! I'm funny?

Anyway, let's continue. Job Time.

::Save Point::

Hooray! Ok, are we done? Yay! Guess What? SENTRY DUTY! YAY!

Sentry Duty #2: 3600 Points (I let my Little Cousin do it)
So no reward... Boo

Again, you'll go sleep. Next morning Loudred will wake you up.

::Save Point::

Chatot will announce that there are new allies in the guild. Guess who are
they? Yesh... Team Skull. Theyll live with you guys for a few days until
the expedition. After introducing theirselves, they will leave, but all the
room starts smelling bad. It's a new day of work! But you guys give a
lame hooray. Wigglytuff seems sad... oh no... COVER YOUR EARS!!!
C'mon guys! Make a good Hooray!!


Outlaw Hunt 7:

Client: Geodude
Objective: Pwn Lileep
Lileep's HP: Less than 160
Dungeon: Drenched Bluff
Floor: 6
Reward: Special Band
Explorer Points: 20


After doing a mission, you'll see a little conversation. It's Team Skull,
they are trying to eat ALL the food! Noes!)

Next Morning... Loudred...

::Save Point::

Hooray! Ok guys, your mission today is: Gather some Perfect Apples.
Why is that? Because for a "Weird" reason, all the Perfect Apples that
were in the Kitchen dissapeared. So you guys must go to Apple Woods.


------------------APPLE WOODS---------------------

Floors:

12 + Deep Apple Woods

----------------------------------------------------

Pokemons:

Caterpie
Burmy
Budew
Hoppip
Oddish
Weedle
Paras
Exeggutor

Beedril

----------------------------------------------------

Notes:

*I recruited a Weedele and a Hoppip
*Use fire attacks. They pwn anything in this dungeon.
*Flying Attacks (Peck, Wing Attack) are also cool.
*Team Skull followed you.
*You can find Perfect Apples in Deep Apple Woods

----------------------------------------------------

HostleX team:

Level (IN):

Timatria = 13
Dinasty = 13
Starly = 9

Level (OUT):

Timatria = 14
Dinasty = 14
Starly = 11
Leafterz = 12
-----------------APPLE WOODS----------------------


When you get to Deep Apple Woods, you'll see a big tree with apples.
You can't get them. Team Skull will arrive, don't worry, there won't be
a Boss Battle. Skuntank will use a tackle against the tree so the Perfect
Apples will drop. They will get them. Koffing and Skuntank will use a
Double Skunty Attack. Gosh! You kinda faint. When you get up, Team
Skull will be gone and so will the Perfect Apples. You have nothing else
to do there. Just return home.

When you inform Chatot that you couldn't get the Perfect Apples, he
will get crazy and won't listen to your partner's explications. You 2
guys are going bed without dinner! But that's not all, you'll go with Chatot
to inform Wigglytuff that there are no more Perfect Apples for him. Gulp.

Some seconds later, you'll be in Wigglytuff's office, of course, he's
smiling!

CarlosPit Note: I gotta admit, I didn't like Wigglytuff when I started the
game, but he's probably my favorite character now! He's kewl!


Ok... back to your Epic Story, Chatot will inform Wigglytuff that you guys
didn't get any Perfect Apples. Wigglytuff won't be mad at all, since he
thinks there are some more Perfect Apples in the kitchen...
Uhh, when Chatot tells him that, as a matter of fact, there are no more
Perfect Apples at all... Oh no... Oh no... COVER YOUR EARS!!!
Fast!! Zomg... Guess who's comming to the rescue? That's right.
Team Skull! Ugh... They will give a Perfect Apple to Wigglytuff,
and you can't imagine how happy he looks. He's soo happy, but you
guys are mad! Wigglytuff now consider Team Skull as childhood friends.
You guys are sent to your room. You wonder why did Team Skull
help you by giving Wigglytuff a Perfect Apple? Well, they don't care
a tiny rat's ass about you... they want to earn Wigglytuff's trust so they
can go to the expedition and then kick your ass.

Next Morning... Loudred again.

::Save Point::

Chatot will announce that the expedition members will soon be known.
So everyone will work a lot. It's working time! When everyone leaves,
Chatot will want to talk with you and your partner. He explains you two
that's going to be nearly impossible for you guys to be in the expedition.
The reason? You failed a very important mission yesterday, so just don't
get your hopes up.

When Chatot tells you to go to work, you'll hear Bidoof calling you. he'll
tell you to go to you "room". When you are there, you'll see Bidoof,
Sunflora and Chimecho. What's going on? They have 2 apples for you!
Yay!! Finally some food, you guys were starving!

After eating those delicious apples, go outside and Croagunk will call
you saying that his shop is now open. For more Info check your
Instruction booklet.

So... it's working time!

After a lot of work, it's finally Dinner Time! Before you start eating, Chatot
has an announcement... The expedition members will be announced tomorrow.
The moment has finally come, how do they expect you guys to sleep with all
the anxiety?

You're such a good pal that you'd rather your partner to be chosen instead of
you, since you know he has given his 110%. You'll see another image,
Grovyle stealing another Time Gear.

Next Morning, Loudred...

::Save Point::

The moment of truth... So... the chosen ones are:

-Team Skull
-Loudred
-Corpish
-Bidoof
-Sunflora
-Chimecho
-Croagunk
-Digglet
-Dugtrio
-Your Partner
-You


That's right... ALL the guild is going. Isn't that great? Oh well, Wigglytuff
seems to love it. It's time to get ready! Buy Reviver Seeds, Max Elixirs,
Sleep Seeds, Big Apples, etc. You can't bring recruited members, so don't
waste your time trying to bring someone. Store your coins with Duskull so
you don't lose them.


"The Exploration Team Federation has sent a Message

Timatria's team was rewarded with a bigger treasure bag"

Once you're all set, talk to Chatot.

Objective: Exploration of Fogbound Lake

Since you're such a big group, Chatot decides to separate you guys by groups.

Group 1: Wigglytuff and Chatot
Group 2: Sunflora, Digglet, Loudred and Croagunk
Group 3: Dugtrio, Chimecho and Corpish
Group 4: Team Skull
Group 5: Your Partner, Bidoof and You.

Anyone unhappy with the groups? Yesh, Wigglytuff! LOL! He says it's kinda
boring being with Chatot.

CarlosPit note: Wouldn't it be awesome having WT in your group? I'd love
to know in which level WT is.

Hooray!

::Save Point::

You'll be in the beggining of a cave. You'll see a Kanghaskan Statue, if you
want to, you can use it to Save your Game or you can use it as storage.

When you enter to the cave, your partner will say that you have two choices.

Option 1: Craggy Coast
Option 2: Missing Data (Didn't take note)

Thing is like this, each time you have to choose between 2 options, you can
either train or keep going with the storyline. The first one is used to continue
with the storyline and the second one is the one used to train and gather
some items you missed.



------------------CRAGGY COAST---------------------

Floors:

10 Floors

-------------------------------------------------------

Pokemons:

Gastrodon
Spheal
Dratini
Krabby
Wingull

-------------------------------------------------------

Notes:

*Bidoof won't earn Exp. Points.

-------------------------------------------------------

Level (IN):

Timatria = 14
Dinasty = 14
Bidoof = 14

Level (OUT):

Timatria = 14
Dinasty = 15
Bidoof = 14

-----------------CRAGGY COAST----------------------



Since your plan is not to go directly to the cave, but to meet in the base
camp, your partner will decide to rest there.

Next Morning

Kanghaskan Statue, Save Point.


Again you'll have 2 options...

Option 1: Mt. Horn
Option 2: Rock Path

Just like I said before, go to Rock Path if you feel like training and go to
Mt. Horn if you want to continue with the storyline.


------------------MT. HORN---------------------

Floors:

14/15 Floors

------------------------------------------------

Pokemons:

Shroomish
Ariados
Natu
Beautifly
Aerodactyl

*Aerodactyl will be a pain in the ass. He's tough.

*If you have a Fire Pkmn, you'll pwn.


-------------------------------------------------

HostleX team:

Level (IN):

Timatria = 15
Dinasty = 15
Bidoof = 16
