Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX Release Date Revealed

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, players take on the role of a human transformed into a Pokémon. A short personality test at the start of the game determines which Pokémon, from among 16 options, the player inhabits.

Unlike previous entries in the series, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX includes an auto mode, allowing players to automatically move through the world without continuous input. The mode turns itself off during enemy encounters, but an automatic attack system allows players to choose the most effective attack by pressing A, rather than selecting the move for themselves.

Players can also add Pokémon they discover in dungeons to their team for a maximum of eight Pokémon. Should their team be defeated, players can request rescue from another player or their own rescue team, then continue from where they fainted.
