We recommend being level 10 for this dungeon.
|1||After getting access to Rescue Camps, go check the Bulletin Board at Pelipper Post Office.|
|2||Go to Pokemon Square for an event with Jumpluff and Shiftry.
The event will also introduce Rescue Team Rank.
You will now receive Rescue Points for completing Jobs.
|3||Go to Rescue Team Camps and eat a Rainbow Gummi by selecting your Starter in Power Plant.
You should get the Rare Quality Squad Up.
|4||Clear two Dungeons and you'll meet Team Meanies.|
|5||Clearing another Dungeon will unlock Sinister Woods and the Metapod rescue mission.|
|4||Reach 13F of Sinister Woods and fight the Boss Team Meanies: Gengar, Medicham, and Ekans|
Team Meanies will be waiting for you at the center of the Sinister Woods. This is the first Boss you'll face with three foes at once, so Orbs are recommended for their potential to inflict Status on multiple foes at once.
The All Power-Up Orb is also recommended for its effect of increasing your whole team's Attack and Special Attack – this can help your individual members each handle themselves more easily against multiple attackers.
As for normal enemies, Linoone's Fury Swipes is a multi-hit force to be reckoned with. It can potentially deal over 50 damage at once, so keep your distance and don't be caught off guard.
Since Rescue Camps have been unlocked now, you can befriend Pokemon on your way to the Bosses.
Sometimes you will find a stranded Pokemon in the Dungeons, like Jobs but without an official request. Giving them an Apple will make them join your team without fail (no matter the size of the apple), so bring plenty of Apples with to ensure that you can recruit as many friends as possible.
In particular, Linoone's Fury Swipes can wreak havoc on Team Meanies, and its Pickup Ability makes it a consistently useful member of your team.
The Pokemon listed above are all obtainable before entering Sinister Woods. As this Dungeon mostly includes Bug and Grass-type Pokemon, it's a good idea to bring Pokemon who can deal super effective damage. Note that the starter Pokemon listed are only available at the beginning of the game.
In Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DX, although you are only allowed to bring 3 Pokemon into a Dungeon, you are able to recruit Pokemon within a Dungeon to a max team size of 8.
It's possible to arrange recruited Pokemon into a wall, protecting your starter and partner behind them while allowing your teammates to deal damage automatically to Team Meanies.
If you have Orbs that can Petrify or Sleep the Meanies, use them and try to focus on one opponent at a time.
