The Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games were a huge success in Japan, but it was a while before North America experienced the fun of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon. The first two Pokémon Mystery Dungeon titles were a curiosity in that the games were virtually identical, despite being on different platforms.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team present one of the biggest Pokémon surprises ever! You are a regular Trainer who wakes up one morning to discover you've been turned into a Pokémon! Not only that, as a Pokémon you can now understand what other Pokémon are saying!
To determine what Pokémon you'll become, the game starts with a series of fun questions about you. There are 16 Pokémon possibilities—will you play as Pikachu or Charmander? As Torchic or as Meowth? Don't worry; no matter what Pokémon you are, you won't be alone in this strange world. You'll quickly meet a partner Pokémon who'll help you out on your adventure. Together, the two of you will explore a vast world of dangerous dungeons and Pokémon secrets. And thanks to each Pokémon's moves, strengths, and weaknesses, every game is a unique experience depending on the Pokémon you become and the partner you choose.
Mysteries abound throughout the story: How and why did all this happen? Can you ever return to the way you were? These are just some of the thrilling questions you'll hope to answer in this unique adventure for the Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance systems!
