Here you can see how to choose your starter Pokemon when you first start playing Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX for Nintendo Switch. You can find a list of possible starters and partner Pokemon, and a guide to the personality quiz!
List of Contents
Refuse the Pokemon that you are assigned with so that you can manually choose the Pokemon that you want to play with.
Similar to Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, you will be given a personality quiz at the start of the game. Based on your answers to the quiz, you will be recommended a Pokemon to start with.
However, in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, you can refuse the Pokemon you are assigned and choose freely from the 16 Starter Pokemon.
In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, some starters were far stronger than others because of typing and specific moves. Mystery Dungeon DX has evened out the playing field a little bit by revamping the starting move pools completely.
However, because of the typing, specific moves learned and move coverage, some starters are still more powerful than others. For tips on what starter to choose, check out the Best Starter page and Starter Tier list!
You are given the ability to choose the Partner Pokemon as well! You are not able to choose Pokemon of the same type, so keep that in mind. It is for your own good as Move Coverage is very important. However, we think that some Pokemon are stronger than others so in addition to managing your Pokemon's weaknesses and strengths, so check our guides below on choosing the perfect Partner Pokemon.
