Friend Area

Crater (Japanese: ふんかこう Crater) is a Friend Area in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team that can be bought from Wigglytuff in Pokémon Square for 7,500 Poké. It is in the Volcano area, and has a capacity of seven Pokémon. All Pokémon here are Fire-type, and capable of using the move Lava Plume.



As the name suggests, the area is a crater. It is black with red lava spirals in the center. It is also surrounded by boulders, and is most likely in a volcano.

In-game data

The sight of this crater spouting spectacular plumes of lava greatly satisfies fire-loving Pokémon.
