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.

How to recruit Entei, Suicune, and Raikou

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.

Entei can be found in Fiery Field during the post-game.

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.


Pokemon Go November Community Day rumors: Who will headline?

The Pokemon Go November Community Day is still a good month away, but that hasn’t stopped trainers speculating as to what the headliner could be.

November is of course the penultimate Pokemon Go Community Day of the year. It is also the last one in which Pokemon fans will try to predict the headliner.


That is because the December CD is traditionally a mega Community Day of sorts. It brings the previous headliners from that year and makes them all available in one event.

Presumably, it will be the same for 2020. It is a day in which Pokemon Go trainers of all levels do their best to make sure they don’t miss out on!


Before we get there though, we still need to find out what the 10th headliner of 2020 will be. That isn’t a typo, as there will only be 11 in total this year because March’s CD was canceled due to the global health crisis – you may have heard about it.

No vote for November?

Niantic have made it a habit of letting us decide which Pokemon headline Community Days in 2020. In fact, 5 of the 10 from 2020 have been decided via vote.

The latest two votes however, have decided the following two Community Days. With October already in place with Charmander, there is only November to decide.


While that doesn’t rule out another vote entirely, it would seemingly make it less likely November’s would be decided by one.


So, if it isn’t to be decided by us, who are the contenders. The one that first comes to mind is Snivy.

Ever since Piplup headlined in January, we haven’t had another starter, at least a new one. At the time it was expected Snivy would be the featured ‘mon for March, which would have been in line with Niantic’s pattern of alternating between starter and non-starters.


Snivy may have been delayed because the Pokemon Go developers realized they were running out of starter ‘mons to use. Of the released Pokemon in the mobile game, it is only the Gen 5 starters that haven’t headlined, although Gen 6’s introduction is expected soon. So, 10 months on from the last one, it could be time for the Unova grass-type starter.

Deino or Gible?

Deino and Gible are two of the more popular Pokemon in the entire franchise and have been rumored as headliners. Unfortunately, that is why either of them making an appearance may be wishful thinking.


Both are super rare spawns and putting them as a featured Pokemon for a Community Day would certainly take away from their current allure. Besides, Niantic likely knows they can rely on them to boost other events, even if they do remain rare spawn rates.

Hopefully, they will headline a Community Day at some point in the future but 2020 seems unlikely at best.

Other contenders

The other most likely candidates for November are Exeggcute and Starly. Both were previously revealed to be included in another vote which never materialized.

Bulbasaur and Magikarp were also in there but the latter has already headlined in 2020, and Bulbasaur seems an unlikely option outside of a vote.

The Pokemon Go CD will likely take place in the second half of November. The 22nd seems the most likely day as this would keep distance between the previous one and adhere to alternating Saturday and Sundays.
