Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Legendary Pokemon

 

 

You are able to capture every single 386 Pokemon (of course, that includes every single legendary as well). To capture the legendary Pokemon, certain requirements must be met and requires some luck. You can attempt to recruit the legendary Pokemon to your rescue team as many times as you want.

 

Requirements

Leader Pokemon: The leader Pokemon is required to deal the finishing blow.

 

Friend Area: You must have the Friend Area the Pokemon belongs to. Some legendary Pokemon will automatically add the Friend Area upon recruiting it.

 

Size: One of the requirements is that you have you have enough room on your current team to fit the new recruit. Each Pokemon has a size: 1 star, 2 star, 3 star, and 4 star. You can have up to four Pokemon on your team, and up to six stars. So make sure the legendary Pokemon can fit into your team.

 

Other Requirements: Other requirements may include that you complete the story mode (after the credits roll), and meet it the second time (some legendary Pokemon are not recruitable until the second time you face it).

 

Increasing Your Chances

Leader Pokemon Level: The higher the leader's Pokemon level, the higher the chances you'll have to recruit Pokemon. Every Pokemon has a certain percentage it can be recruited at. If you're at a high level, you get a bonus percent:

 

Level 1- 29 = 0.0%
Level 30- 39 = 5.0%
Level 40- 49 = 7.5%
Level 50- 59 = 10.0%
Level 60- 69 = 12.5%
Level 70- 79 = 15.0%
Level 80- 89 = 17.5%
Level 90-100 = 24.0%

 

Friend Bow: The item Friend Bow can increase your chances of recruiting a Pokemon by 10%. Friend Bow is at Mt. Faraway, on the 30th floor in a locked door (need the key item to open it).
