This is a guide to all features and Missions unlocked after the main story is completed. Read on to find out what features are unlocked and how to complete each post-game Mission.

What Happens After Beating the Game

New Missions to Catch Legendary Pokemon

Story Events will occur after the end of the game which give access to a variety of Legendary Pokemon. Each Pokemon which appears as a Boss will agree to join your team after you defeat them, so it's a good idea to go ahead and try these Dungeons right away after they are unlocked.

Challenge Dungeons Unlocked

New Dungeons will appear with a much greater difficulty level than those found in the main Story. These include Dungeons with 99 floors, Dungeons where your whole party starts at Level 1, and more.

All Pokemon become available

Over 400 Pokemon are available in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DX. With no separation between Red and Blue versions this time, all Pokemon are accessible with a single copy of the game. Every Pokemon found in the game can be recruited, so long as you have the proper Rescue Camp, so be sure to purchase Camps ahead of time to make sure you can befriend any Pokemon.

Shiny Pokemon become recruitable

Like the main series games, alternate colored versions of each Pokemon can be found in the game. Although these Pokemon can be encountered at a high rate as Strong Foes from early on, they do not become recruitable until completing the game, so be sure to finish the game quickly if you want to add Shinies to your team.

Aim for the Highest Rescue Team Rank!

Lots of Pokemon are still needing to be rescued! Work your way up until the prestigious Master Rank! It is going to be tedious, but at least the variety of dungeons in the post-game will keep you entertained.

Tips and Strategies for Post-Game Missions

Boost your Rescue Team Rank

Starting from the Rookie Rank, you can continue to climb in the ranks as you complete Jobs. This will increase the number of Pokemon you can recruit and the number of items you can hold, so it will help significantly in completing the post-game Dungeons.
