The personality quiz
Upon starting Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX on your Nintendo Switch, the game will immediately launch into a quiz. This will be a mixture of silly and serious questions to get a feel for your unique personality. Of course, you can always answer questions according to what you think will land you on your favorite Pokémon. However, it's more fun to simply see which Pokémon the game feels most closely represents who you are.
If you don't like the Pokémon that it pairs you with, there's no need to worry. You can choose any of the 16 main characters instead of being stuck with the one it suggests. After that, you also get to choose who your supporting character will be from the remaining Pokémon. In that way, it's a bit like double-dipping. You can choose two of your favorites from the list.
Which Pokémon can I choose from?
There are 16 Pokémon who can be the main character and support character. However, the choices only come from the first three core Pokémon RPGs. Here are all the Pokémon you can choose from:
