You play a Pokémon instead of a Pokémon trainer in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, but the game is still about filling out your Pokédex. The difference is that instead of catching Pokémon using Poké Balls, you'll be recruiting them to join your Rescue Team.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon KinshipSource: iMore

Whenever you defeat a Pokémon in battle in one of the game's dungeons, there's a chance that you'll get a message saying that Pokémon "seemed to develop a kinship" with your team while battling. When that happens, they will ask to tag along for the rest of the adventure. They will help you in combat, though you won't be able to directly control their actions. You can have up to six Pokémon following your team around at once, after which you'll be asked to dismiss one of your new friends if you want to add more. If you've got a bunch of Pokémon you're excited about recruiting, you can dismiss one of your established team members for the dungeon to open up another slot. Pokemon you haven't recruited yet are marked with an ! to make it easier to choose.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DismissSource: iMore

When a Pokémon joins your adventure, you'll learn if they have a Rare Quality and if you have a Rescue Team Camp that they can stay at. If they survive to the end of the dungeon, these Pokémon will ask to join your team, provided you have a compatible Camp. If you don't or you just choose not to recruit them, they will still give you a little Poké as thanks for taking them on a fun adventure. Here is a list of the Pokémon we know can be recruited through combat and where to find them.

Pokemon that need help

Some Bulletin Board requests have a special reward where the Pokémon who made the request will want to join your team. You'll still need the appropriate Camp, so make sure you buy it before heading out. You may also find Pokémon that have feinted in dungeons. You can revive them by giving them an apple, and they will also want to tag along and join your team after you leave. Both of these are determined randomly and do not obey the typical appearance rules for a dungeon, though they will all be Pokémon that can be acquired normally through battle.

Pokémon that are automatically recruited

Some Pokémon will automatically join your team once specific plot points have been reached:

  • Magnetite will join you once you make your first visit to the Wigglytuff Camp Corner.
  • Absol will join your team after you make it through the Heart of the Frosty Forest.

How to recruit Legendary Pokémon

Once you have completed the game's main campaign, you will be able to start recruiting Legendary Pokémon. Each has a specific location and will automatically join your team when defeated. They'll also reward you with a Camp that they can stay at.

Some of the Pokémon have more complicated meants of recruitment. * Latios and Latias will be recruited after completing the Northern Range and Pitfall Valley. * Regirock, Regice, and Registeel are encountered on floors 15, 25 and 35 of the Buried Relic, respectively. Defeating each one gives you a component that can be assembled into a Music Box. Once you have the item, you can return to the dungeon and defeat them again to automatically recruit them. * Mew can be encountered randomly between floors 36 and 39 of the Buried Relic if you have the Music Box. Mew may randomly choose to join your team after being defeated.
