Beware of Surprise Attacks - Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, tips and tricks to get started

It could happen, in moments of less attention, that an attack takes us by surprise. An opposing Pokémon hiding on the map suddenly comes out and wants to fight. One solution might be to always be ready to defend ourselves, but there is a better way. 

While crossing a dungeon we will be shown the map on the left side of the screen. From it we will receive various important information such as the location of objects and objectives marked as shot blu. However we will have to pay more attention to those red representing i enemies ready to attack us. That way they won't be able to take us by surprise.

Don't be left on an empty stomach - Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, tips and tricks to get started

What's better than dealing with problems with a full stomach? Our Pokémon know this too. An orange circle is shown next to the green life bar to indicate the belly (or hunger) of our little creature. In case it empties, with each step of the leader, the Pokémon's life will gradually decline. This is a situation to avoid and just go to the Kecleon shop, buy food and eat it when you need it most.

Protecting our earnings - Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, tips and tricks to get started

Losing items accumulated during the game can be very frustrating. It is something that unfortunately happens in case we end up exhausted, but for this there are various solutions. The first is to deposit the earnings made in the bank run by Persian. The second is a direct help during the clashes, but it is definitely an expensive solution. A very useful thing is indeed the Revitalseme which completely restores HP, PP and belly to a Pokémon that becomes exhausted.

During the game we will be able to recruit new Pokémon to be brought to the team with us, this option is not available immediately after the game begins. To do this we will have to beat the first boss and be powerful enough to face him. In addition to leveling by facing enemies in the dungeons we will be able to bring our creatures to train in the gym. The place is run by Makuhita and it will help our Pokémon to become stronger.

Also speaking with Gulpin we can pay to get chained attacks. It means that every time our Pokémon attacks, it will use two moves at the same time increasing accordingly the damage caused. Receiving these moves costs game coins, so it will be necessary to put a lot of them aside to make all the monsters more powerful.
