Purity Forest (Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team/Rescue Team DX)

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki

Purity Forest is a dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team as well as it's remake Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX. It's the home of the legendary pokemon Celeby, and it's unlocked by completing Pitfall Valley, as well as obtaining the friend area Sky Blue Plains. It's well know to be the hardest dungeon, along with Zero Isle South and Destiny Tower.

Why it Sucks

  1. You can't bring any teammates with you, and you can't recruit pokemons at all here.
  2. Upon entrance, your level becomes 1, and will return to normal by exiting, failing or completing the dungeon.
  3. Any item you're carrying will be permanently loss. The same goes for Poké.
  4. IQ Skills are resetted, and like the level, will return to normal by exiting, failing or completing the dungeon.
  5. Unlike what the News Bulletins says (describing the dungeon as a test of strenght, intelligence and wits), it's actually a test of luck, due to the random spawn of items.
  6. Inside the dungeon, items have a 5% chance to be sticky.
  7. It has 99 FLOORS, making it more tedious to climb.
  8. It has monster houses, which are frequent on the 7th, 23rd, 38th, 55th and 75th floor.
  9. It has traps, most notably the Summon Trap, the Pokemon Trap, the Sticky Trap and the Grimy Trap. Those four traps are the most dangerous here, and can leave you with high difficulties.
  10. After reaching the last floor, your reward for all this, is that Celebi will ask the player to join. No battle, and no alternate stuff, like in Wish Cave, where you can make Jirachi grant you a wish, if you have a Wish Stone, you just recruit a legendary pokemon.
  11. Speaking of Wish Cave, that dungeon and Joyous Tower, while having the level 1 penalty (with Wish Cave forcing you to have HM Surf as well) and 99 floors, they let you recruit new pokemons and carry items like you normally do.
    • It's also worth mentioning that Wish Cave, Joyous Tower and Purity Forest shares the same way of unlocking, aKa completing Pitfall Valley and have the Friend Area Sky Blue Plains unlocked.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. As said before, your reward is Celebi, and contrary to WIS #8, not only the player pokémon don't require to battle him, but it gives you its Friend Area, and starts at level 45 as well.
  2. If you manage to complete the dungeon without cheating, you are a true Pokemon Mystery Dungeon player.
