* {{Retcon}}: ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' confirms all the previous games take place in the same world. In the process, it also rewrote a few things about the previous games...
** The Wigglytuff in T/D/S was originally male in his debut game. Come ''Super'' though, ''she's'' now a girl.
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity'', Umbreon and Espeon were originally referred to as being a brother and sister team. Once again, in ''Super'', as well as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfrA3X_Qcwg bonus video on one of Nintendo's channels]], either this was {{Retcon}}ned into making them unrelated, or there's some implied BrotherSisterIncest going on between them...

* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonGatesToInfinity Gates to Infinity]]'': The fourth installment in the series, released on the Nintendo3DS, with [[VideoGame3DLeap fully 3D graphics]]. Unlike previous installments, this game is a standalone title. It makes use of items called Magnagates, which are generated based on AugmentedReality minigames. It was released in Japan on November 23rd, 2012, while North America had their release on March 24, 2013, Europe on May 17, 2013, and Australia a day later on May 18.
* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon Super Mystery Dungeon]]'': The fifth installment of the series, released on the Nintendo 3DS on September 17, 2015 in Japan, November 20, 2015 in North America, February 19, 2016 in Europe, and February 20, a day later, in Australia. The choices for the two PlayerCharacters are the starters from all 6 gens from the main games plus [[SeriesMascot Pikachu]] and [[BreakoutCharacter Riolu]].

The first two installments also received their own manga adaptations and a few anime episodes based on them (see TheAnimeOfTheGame); the fourth also received an anime-style two-episode short episode.

* OneGameForThePriceOfTwo: Just like the main series, there are only subtle differences in item and Pokémon appearance rates. (Additionally, the ''Rescue Team'' games are on differing systems, which means there are a few touchscreen features in ''Blue'' that aren't in ''Red'', and Pokémon can be traded between them with just one system.)

** Averted with ''Gates to Infinity'', which has no counterpart. Though there is a surprisingly small amount of recruitable Pokémon (as it's mostly just Unova Pokémon).

[[caption-width-right:350:Imagine a world where only Pokemon roam. Including YOU.]]

-> ''"Introducing the newest Pokémon ... ''YOU!''''"
-->-- '''{{Tagline}}''', ''Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red/Blue Rescue Team''

A [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pokémon]]-themed entry in Spike Chunsoft's (originally Chunsoft's before the merger with Spike) ''Mystery Dungeon'' (''Fushigi no Dungeon'') {{Roguelike}} franchise. The games center around a world populated ''exclusively'' by Pokémon (with no humans to be seen), who live in towns and cities, run shops, and go on adventures in [[RandomlyGeneratedLevels randomly-generated dungeons]].

''Pokémon Mystery Dungeon'' as a whole is notable from the main series for two reasons, one being that it's the first entries in the entire Pokémon franchise to place special emphasis on CharacterDevelopment and a compelling StoryArc (as opposed to the series's usual quest ToBeAMaster and to [[GottaCatchThemAll catch 'em all]]), typically involving a human who [[FishOutOfTemporalWater awakens in the Pokémon's world]] to discover that they've somehow been transformed into a Pokémon themselves. They become best friends with another Pokémon, form an adventure team, and go on a QuestForIdentity over the course of many adventures, as clues about their MysteriousPast reveal that their ultimate destiny is nothing less than SaveTheWorldClimax from an imminent destruction.

The gameplay is what you would expect from a {{Roguelike}}, except with battle mechanics loosely resembling those of the main Pokémon series: All 400-plus individual species (which you can "recruit" to become members of your team), all [[ElementalRockPaperScissors 17 elemental types]], moves, abilities, and StandardStatusEffects from the main series show up in a manner better suited to the different nature of gameplay. The Pokémon themselves are represented faithfully with 8-directional walking and attacking sprites and dialogue portraits (an impressive feat in and of itself!).
