Cleaning up after squidlifecrisis.
Similar to the [[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonRescueTeam first installment]], the player wakes up in a world inhabited solely by Pokémon, this time washing ashore of a small village called Treasure Town after a storm, with no memories of what happened to them or how/why they've been transformed from a human into a Pokemon. They befriend a timid young Pokemon with a mysterious artifact and together join the local Wigglytuff Guild to train as an exploration team, exploring the strange, randomly-generated "mystery dungeons" that have been showing up in various regions lately. Along the way they learn that a mysterious Pokémon has been reported stealing [[{{MacGuffin}} very important artifacts]] called "Time Gears," and ultimately get swept up in a quest to SaveTheWorld before [[TimeStandsStill time itself grinds to a halt]].

** One of the tactics you can tell your party members to use is "Avoid the first hit," described as, "The Pokémon will try to avoid being attacked first. If an enemy comes close, however, the Pokémon will attack." In practice the party member will approach any hostile pokémon, including sleeping pokémon, and wait one tile away until attacked. If the enemy attacks at range instead of closing to melee, the party member will stand still and just take it until they die.

**The Aegis Cave is an interesting example, as while it's only 20 floors deep with 4 'checkpoints' You have to do it in one sitting, due to not being able to leave from the checkpoints. And considering the gimmick of the dungeon, you're going to be there a while.

to:
* LethalJokeCharacter: Cresselia. If you get the treasure chest from the Spacial Rift, it has a chance to contain a Lunar Veil, her signature item that passes on any stat buffs she gains to the rest of the team. When you take her to the Dark Crater, she comes packing Double Team. Giving your whole team an evasion buff can save your life during the final boss. Though she forgets it after you recruit her, you can take her to Electivire to remember it, and can even teach her Calm Mind via TM to further benefit from the Veil. * TheLoad: When you're actually trekking through Dark Crater, Cresselia is falls into this so much during Dark Crater thanks to poor type matchups and a tendency to wander onto lava.
