With 720 Pokémon to befriend in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, you’ll be pretty busy making new buddies in the game, and 4Gamer shows us just how it’s done in the upcoming Nintendo 3DS title.
In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, all Pokémon are connected one way or another, and the “Connection Orb” will show you just that. It’s a new system that lets you see the relation between your Poké buddies.
The Connection Orb will show you the Pokémon you’ve met, and the ones you’re connected to as well. When you look at the connected Pokémon, you’ll be able to see things like what they’re worrying about, and if you solve it, they’ll become your friends. And you’ll also get to see Pokémon that your new friends are connected to.
Sylveon is the first Pokémon you’ll become friends with. You’ll find her lost in a forest that looks kind of scary.
As you advance through the story, there will be more and more Pokémon that appear in the Connection Orb. If you see a Pokémon that you like, you can work your way towards them and help them solve their problem and have them join your group.
You’ll also get to see Legendary and Mythical Pokémon and have them join you as well.
However, the Mythical Pokémon Hoopa is an exception, as it appears in a dungeon. There’s an item called “Warlock’s Pot” which you acquire from somewhere in the world of Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon. Once you use it in a dungeon,Hoopa will appear and help fight against monsters in the dungeon.
Hoopa will occasionally call out Legendary or Mythical Pokémon. Sometimes they’ll appear as your allies and other times as enemies.
In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, you’ll take on the role of a Pokémon child with amnesia. Nuzleaf will be there to take care of you, but you’ll also attend school in town with other Pokémon kids. This is where you’ll meet your classmates and teachers.
Your first partner Pokémon will be an energetic and adventurous one, who dreams of making a world map.
Here’s a look at some of the other classmates you’ll meet:
