Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX — Do you have to play as the Pokémon from your personality quiz?

Best Answer: No. The personality test at the start of the game will suggest a character for you, but you can choose from any of the 16 main character Pokémon. After you've chosen your main character, you'll also get to choose who your buddy is from the remaining 15 Pokémon.To the rescue: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX (opens in new tab) ($60 at Amazon)

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.

What is Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX?

It's a Nintendo Switch remake of the first two Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games that originally released on Game Boy Advance and DS back in 2005. You lead a team of Pokémon into dungeons to complete missions and rescue fellow Pokémon. Whenever you complete a task, your team earns Rescue Points and can increase your team's rank. Unlike other Pokémon games, there are no trainers involved in battles.

You'll interact with other Pokémon in a little village and can train up your team to make them more powerful. Along the way, you'll recruit more Pokémon to your team and will unravel a touching story.
