This is a guide on how to Steal from Kecleon's Shops in dungeons for the game Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX on the Nintendo Switch. Here you can find the best equipment and items to steal with, as well as what to look out for.
List of Contents
Using a Pure Seed to escape Kecleon is the easiest way to steal from them. Eating a Pure Seed teleports you to the room where the stairs are, but you will get teleported to a random spot in the room and not just next to the stairs.
If the room is large, the Kecleons can easily knock you out before you reach the stairs, so be careful and plan your moves well.
The Mobile Scarf allows you to phase through dungeon walls. The Kecleons are unable to attack you if you're phasing through the walls. Be sure to bring plenty of food as phasing depletes a lot of Hunger.
|One-Room Orb||Petrify Orb||Slumber Orb||Totter Orb|
You can convert the whole floor into one room using the One-Room Orb. After that's done, all room-wide Orbs will be able to disable the Kecleon. Choose from Petrify Orb, Slumber Orb or Totter Orb to do the disabling.
If done correctly, you will be able to make your way to the stairs with ease.
|Tunnel Wand||Switcher Wand||Pounce Wand|
By tunneling from the stairs to the Kecleon Shop beforehand, you can set an escape route for your safe exit.
|Petrify Wand||Stayaway Wand||Slumber Wand||Petrify Orb|
You can also make your way through the stairs using items that disable the Kecleons. However, Kecleons recover from Petrification and other Status Conditions quickly—like bosses.
Keep in mind that they have doubled speed by default so they can easily catch up to you once the disable is over.
|Quick Orb||Quick Seed|
Since the Kecleons are doubled in travel speed, you have to use travel speed items as well to stand a chance in getting away.
|Moves that increase Travel Speed like Agility||Effective for matching or surpassing Kecleon Travel Speed.|
|Moves that can disable the Kecleon like Thunder Wave||For disabling the Kecleon.|
|Moves that can teleport you from room to room like Teleport||For trying to get to the room with the Stairs.|
|Room-wide disables like Spore||Room-wide disables are useful when there are too many Kecleons near you.|
Before you steal, it's best to know where the stairs are first. This ensures that you're on a straight path after stealing and not trying to find your way while dealing with the powerful Kecleon.
|Scanner Orb||Radar Orb||X-Ray Specs|
These items will help you locate the stairs faster. If the Kecleon shop is far from the stairs, it is better not to steal. The Radar Orb will let you know where the Kecleons are.
When you refuse to pay for the items you picked up from a Kecleon Shop inside a Dungeon, his alarms will sound and he will turn hostile to you.
You can also use items like Apples or Max Ether within the shop and pay when you leave (like if you had picked it up normally). However, if you don't have money to pay for the items you used, you'll be branded a Thief as well!
Soon enough, other Kecleon will teleport to the dungeon and try to take you down as well.
You can get items for free. This is useful in dungeons where you cannot bring in items.
You can also get money by selling all the items that you have in your inventory and stealing them back. If for some reason you brought Gold or Deluxe Ribbons, you can make lots of money by selling and stealing them back as you can sell them again in the Pokemon Square Kecleon Shop.
A horde of powerful Kecleon will spawn on the floor. They have doubled Travel Speed by default and have very high stats, so most of the time it's smarter to try to escape rather than fight them.
Having the Thief status means that you cannot change party leaders. It's not possible to have a Pokemon to wait near the stairs, steal the items and then change leaders to easily get access to the stairs, unfortunately.
|Escape Orb||Bank Orb|
If you have the Thief status, you cannot use these two Orbs to escape or store the money that you have. If you want to use these items, you need to escape to the next floor first.

>>10 and for the post game after some stats and access to Steamroll and Riled Up rare Qualities, nothing was really a problem for me. Provided I used a Delcatty and Groudon for my runs I finished the whole game except grandmaster rank ofc screw that
>>9 it was okay. It's not as bad as you think. For the main story, Ancient Power worked well. Sometimes you get lucky with the move. I had lots of Blast Seeds too so that was good working for me. My Partner was Skitty who covered all of my weaknesses.
