Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Gameplay
In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games, each move happens one step at a time. After you move one space or take a single action (such as attacking), all the other Pokémon will take their own actions in turn. If you don't move, nobody else will either, meaning you have all the time you need to think through your battle strategy.
Each Pokémon can learn up to four moves. Each of these moves has specific power, type, and characteristics similar to attacks in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 (sold separately). Carefully consider which moves you and your team of Pokémon know to bring victory that much closer. Also, the more you use a move, the stronger it will get! And the benefit from powering up a move will be available to all the Pokémon who know that move.
Battle Together with Friends
Get Rescued with StreetPass!
Join up with people nearby who are also playing Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity to explore and battle through dungeons together! Up to four people can play at a time. (Each player must have his or her own Nintendo 3DS system and copy of the game.) In this mode, you can play as a different Pokémon on your team.
Sometimes a friend, or even you, may faint inside a dungeon from enemy attacks and harmful traps. But you might be able to exchange rescues using the StreetPass™ feature. If you place a Reviver Seed in your Passerby Post and walk by someone who has fainted in a dungeon, you will automatically save that player. Maybe someone else will rescue you the same way!
