Generation II’s Legendary dogs Entei, Raikou, and Suicune are available for recruitment in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DX on Nintendo Switch – but it’s a complicated process. Luckily, we’ve got everything you need to know.
DX was released onto the Switch on March 6 by The Pokemon Company and Nintendo, and saw the 2005 Mystery Dungeon title remade and brought to the modern day. Not only did it introduce new features such as Mega Evolutions and Auto Mode, it also brought old ones back too.
One such reappearance is the inclusion of Legendary monsters and the ability to add them to your rescue team. Entei, Suicune, and Raikou are just three of the Pokemon that can be recruited, and we’re here to tell you how it’s done.
To get Entei, players will need to do a few things first – including finishing the main story campaign. Once this is done, the Buried Relic and Great Canyon dungeons will need to be completed, too.
After that, head to the town square to find a Spinda who gives you a Clear Wing, which then unlocks the Fiery Field where the Legendary dog can be found on floor 30, but you should be at least level 45 before attempting it.
To make it easier, make sure you enter the dungeon with a Water-type team as it’ll make defeating the fiery monster a breeze.
For Raikou, players need to have defeated Entei first in order to gain access to Lightning Field where the Electric-type resides. Like before, it is recommended that you’re at least level 45 before trying to best him – the higher the better.
The dog is on floor 30, and will succumb to Ground moves so make sure you’ve got at least one of that type in your team before attempting. You should also recruit Pokemon as you progress through the dungeon to make the brawl even easier, though this can be said for all three of the legendaries.
As for Suicune, it’s pretty similar as the previous two. He can be found at the Northwind Field dungeon after Raikou is defeated, and is weak to Electric and Grass moves.
All of the dogs will join you automatically upon defeating them in the post-game, and will also give you their camp for free so that you don’t have to pay.
