Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time (Japanese: ポケモン不思議のダンジョン 時の探検隊) and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness (Japanese: ポケモン不思議のダンジョン 闇の探検隊) are a matched pair of Pokémon games for the Nintendo DS.
The games are a sequel to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon. They include the new Generation IV Pokémon and have some Wi-Fi features, as well as more dual-screen features than their predecessor for the same system (Mystery Dungeon Blue).
An anime adaptation of these games has been produced.
These games feature 491 Pokémon; Shaymin and Arceus were excluded for they had yet to be officially revealed when the games were released. The games were released on April 20th, 2008.
After selecting a Pokémon from the personality test, the game jumps right in as the player wakes up on a beach, after a scene with their partner outside the Wigglytuff Guild with a mysterious rock with a symbol embedded on the top. The partner wants to be a detective but can't yet join the Wigglytuff Guild without another member. So after the two defeat two Pokémon criminals, a Zubat and Koffing, they make a team together.
