Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

Get Deoxys And Lugia

First, to get Lugia, you need to recruit Zapdos, Articuno, Moltres, and Kyogre. Hint:You don't need their freind areas to recruit them. Once you recruit them, you get their freind areas automanically. Zapdos is in Mt. Thunder, Articuno is in Mt. Freeze, Moltres is in Mt. Blaze, and Kyogre is in Stormy Sea. (You need to have the freind bow to recruit them). Once you get all of them, go to the Pokemon square. Notice Alakasm isn't in his usual place. He is by Charizard, Tyranitar and Lombre. Talk to him. Say ye. Then go to the Legendary bird's freind area. Then go to Silver trench. DO NOT RECRUIT ANYONE. Lugia is a big pokemon. Just Lugia. (Remember, Bring the friend bow).

Ranks

There are eight ranks in pmd:rrt
1. This is the ranks in which you start the game with/saving caterpie
2. Normal rank: 0-49 rescue team points-first rank after you become a rescue team
3. Bronze rank: 50-499 rescue team points
4. Silver rank: 500-1499 rescue team points
5. Gold rank: 1500-2999 rescue team points-alakazam's and blastoise's teams have Gold ranks
6. Platinum rank: 3000-7499 rescue team points
7. Diamond rank: 7500-1499 rescue team points
8. Lucario rank: 1500 rescue team points-final rescue team rank and you get a Lucario Statue.

Kyogre

Kyogre is in Stormy Sea on B40 floor. If you defeat it, it will join your rescue team, even if you don't have its friend area, Seafloor Cavern.

Fire Stone

Fire stones can be found on floor 29 in Firey Field.

Water Stone

You can find the water stone on the 29 floor in northwind field.

Truth About Purity Forest

In Purity Forest, the only pokemon you can recruit is Celebi, and that is if you manage to get to the 99th floor. This takes some real skill to do, and you have to be very good to beat it, since you start out at level 1.

Tiny Woods Truth

In Tiny Woods, you cant recruit anyone.

The Joy Seed

At a certain point in the game you will unlock a stage called Joyous Tower, about the same time as you unlock that you will most likely to unlock the joy seed. The joy seed, when eaten, raises the pokemon that ate it by ONE lvl. This will make non-item evolution easier.

Get Lucario

Get to Lucario Rank, and after that Lucario should be in the square. He will challenge you to a battle, and he should join your team after you win. Have all of the friends area.

Get Mew

In order to get Mew, go to the Buried Relic. When you defeat the Regis and get the Music Box, DON'T PLAY IT. Instead, just keep it in your toolbox. From the 36F on, Mew may appear randomly. NOTE: Mew is not considered a boss. It will appear just as a normal pokemon. You must also have the friend area Final Island.

Arcticuno

The second to fifth time you battle Arcticuno, it should join your rescue team.

Friend Bow

After you defeat Ho-Oh on Mt. Faraway, take a key and go to the thirtieth floor. Since you quicksave before you enter the dungeon you should carry an escape orb. On the thirtieth floor behind a locked door you will find an extremly rare item called the friend bow. It makes recruiting pokemon easier.

Getting The Regi Stones

First of all, just know that Ancient Relic has 100 floors. On the 15th, 25th, and 35th floors, you will have to battle and defeat Regirock, Regice, and Registeel (in that order). You will get 3 stones by defeating all 3 of the Regis- red, blue, and yellow. Once you have all three stones, they will create a music box. This box plays an enchanting tune that will bring to you a special gift. Just wait until the right time to use it(in Ancient Relic). I refuse to say anything else. What the music box brings is a secret that's up to you to find out!

Evolution Stones

Some Pokemon require the use of items to evolve, such as stones or ribbons. Here are the locations of those items:
Beauty Scarf: Western Cave 59F (Key required) 
Deepseascale: Grand Sea 15F or Far-Off Sea (upper floors) 
Deepseatooth: Grand Sea 15F or Far-Off Sea (upper floors) 
Dragon Scale: Wyvern Hill 29F - 30F 
Fire Stone: Fiery Field 29F 
King's Rock: Kecleon Shop in Wish Cave 
Leaf Stone: Kecleon Shop in Wish Cave 
Link Cable: Solar Cave 10F (Key required) 
Lunar Ribbon: Northwind Field 20F (Key required) 
Metal Coat: Southern Cave 49F - 50F 
Moon Stone: Solar Cave or Kecleon Shop in Wish Cave 
Sun Ribbon: Wyvern Hill 20F (Key required) 
Sun Stone: Solar Cave 
Thunderstone: Lightning Field 29F 
Upgrade: Kecleon Shop in Wish Cave 
Water Stone: Northwind Field 29F (Key required) 

Beat Groudon Easily

When you battle Groudon you should have a water or grass type pokemon with you. Groudon only has weak attacks (unless they're super effective)and if you keep throwing attacks at him like water gun and razor leaf, he should be defeated in about 7-9 turns. It might help if you brought lots of blast seeds(they do alot of damage) I did this with a machop and chickorita.

Absol

Absol becomes one of your team members when you get chased by Gengar and them all.

Getting Wideslash

In the far-off sea, get to floor 50 with a key and open the key door and there will be wideslash.

Stormy Sea

The Stormy Sea has 40 floors. On the 40th floor, you will have to fight Kyogre, so unless you or your partner, you're goin' to lose.

Sky Tower

There are 25 floors in Sky Tower and 9 floors in the Sky Tower Summit.

SkyTower

When your in the sky tower where Rayquaza is. If you get to the top and you cant beat him I suggest you train in those last 10 Floors over and over again until you can beat him $$$69$$$

Ranks

Once you get enough Rescue Points, you're Rank will be higher. The following shows how many Rescue Points you'll need to get a higher Rank:
Normal Rank: 0 Rescue Points
Bronze Rank: 100 Rescue Points
Silver Rank: 500 Rescue Points
Gold Rank: 1,500 Rescue Points

Be Careful

If you are inside a Dungeon, and if your partner faints(the one that you pick in the start of your game), you will have to escape the dungeon and start all over. There is a 30% chance that if you bring a friend from a friend area, that pokemon will not be your friend anymore. You will lose ALL the Poke you had with you if you lose. You will also lose half of your Items you had with you.
