(Japanese: ポケモン不思議のダンジョン マグナゲートと∞迷宮 Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Magnagate and the Infinite Labyrinth) is an upcoming Nintendo 3DS title that is a part of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. It was released in Japan on November 23, 2012.

New features

This game implements full 3D gameplay via the 3DS's 3D capabilities. It also takes advantage of the 3DS's AR functions. By recognizing different round objects, it transforms them into a (Japanese: マグナゲート Magnagate), leaving an infinite labyrinth of dungeons to be explored.

Many Unova Pokémon such as Gurdurr, Virizion, and Hydreigon are included in the game.

One of the other prominent features is mini-games, one of which is run by Beartic, though their purpose is currently unknown.

There are obstacles such as a Poison Gas cloud that block the way in dungeons. It is unknown how to clear the way.

When it rains, the player may not heal their Pokémon's HP.


The story begins begins with a dream of Munna being chased by Hydreigon before switching to the dream background. The player begins the game as a character that becomes a Pokémon which the player has chosen, the Pokémon that is chosen enters a blue Magnagate and falls from the sky to the ground. The Pokémon wakes up dizzy and confused, as the player gets to choose their partner Pokémon. The partner Pokémon that can be chosen are Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Pikachu and Axew. Both the playable and partner Pokémon start out at Level 7. The player is able to choose the gender of the Pokémon chosen. The playable Pokémon wakes up, which startles the partner Pokémon. The playable Pokémon explains to their partner that they fell from the sky.

The partner Pokémon brings them into the first dungeon called (Japanese: でこぼこ山 Bumpy Mountain). As the Pokémon enter the first dungeon, a view of the whole dungeon is shown. The Pokémon come to a bridge, as they try and figure out how to cross it. They enter a cave opening, as a tutorial on how to use the controls is shown. More tutorials are displayed, as the Pokémon move through the dungeon. As the Pokémon reach the 3rd floor, they come upon a sparkling tree. The Pokémon hits the tree to create a bridge to cross. As the Pokémon reach the 5th floor, they have made it to the other side of the dungeon and may now exit the dungeon.

The Pokémon take the crossroad to a barren wasteland, where the are met by a Quagsire. Quagsire walks away, as the partner Pokémon decides to permanently team up. The player then chooses a name for their partner Pokémon. The playable Pokémon recalls the dream they had about Hydreigon chasing after a Munna, as a flashback is shown. The Pokémon sleep through the night in front of a tree stump. The next morning, Quagsire returns and brings them through the crossroads to the (Japanese: ポケモンパラダイス Pokémon Paradise). A view of the different shops and locations inside of the Pokémon Paradise are shown.

Quagsire shows the treasure chest that can be used to store Poké and items and explains that Kecleon runs the shop to buy items. A Roggenrola and Ducklett have an argument and then go their separate ways. Quagsire introduces the Pokémon to a pair of Timburr, as they enter Swanna's store. Quagsire introduces them to Swanna and Gurdurr, as Gurdurr decides to help them build the Pokémon Paradise. The Timburr make a request for them to obtain rocks, as the Pokémon enter the next dungeon called (Japanese: 石の洞窟 Stone Cave).

When the Pokémon reach the B3F, they will come upon a locked door that will require a key to open. As the Pokémon reach the end of the dungeon, there are blue shining rocks. The Pokémon take some of the rocks for the Timburr, and then head back to the Pokémon Paradise. As the Pokémon return to the Pokémon Paradise, a Scraggy bumps into them. Scraggy runs off, as the Pokémon return to where Timburr and Gurdurr are. The Pokémon try to give Timburr and Gurdurr the rocks, but realize that they have been stolen. Gurdurr does not appear to be upset, as the Pokémon exit the store.

The Pokémon see Scraggy again at the entrance to Pokémon Paradise as Scraggy runs off again. The Pokémon head off to the next dungeon called (Japanese: カゲロウ峠 Heat Haze Pass). After reaching the 6F, the Pokémon run into Scraggy, as they hide and notice that Gurdurr is also in the dungeon and speaks to Scraggy. The Pokémon confront Gurdurr and Scraggy, as the boss battle begins. After defeating Scraggy and Gurdurr, Scraggy runs away. The pair of Timburr show up, as Gurdurr becomes angry and knocks both Timburr down before walking away. The Pokémon and Timburr go after Gurdurr.

After reaching the top, the Pokémon see Gurdurr looking out at the moon. The Pokémon begin another battle against Gurdurr. After the battle, Gurdurr shows the Pokémon the back scratch that it had received. The Timburr show up, as they cry along with Gurdurr. The next day, it is shown that the Timburr and Gurdurr built the Pokémon a house. The next day, the Pokémon wake up inside of their home, and head outside. Quagsire brings them to the notice board and introduces them to Azumarill. The partner Pokémon looks at the board and chooses a mission, as the gate opens. Quagsire sells some items at this time prior to the Pokémon going on the mission.

The Pokémon enter the dungeon called (Japanese: トントン山 Tapping Mountain). After reaching the logs with the shining stars, the Pokémon hits the logs and they fall down the waterfall. An Emolga appears and greets them before leaving. The Pokémon try to climb down a ladder, but the ladder breaks and they crash to the ground. As the Pokémon navigate through the dungeon and end up on the other side of the dungeon, they come upon more logs with shining stars. The Pokémon hits the logs, as they move down the waterfall and complete the bridge needed to cross the water. The Pokémon move further through the dungeon until they find crystals and bring some with them. At the end of the dungeon, the Pokémon run into a Dunsparce, as Emolga arrives and the dungeon is cleared.

After the mission, the Pokémon are given a Blast Seed, a Red Key, and 100 Poké. A flashback is shown of the Pokémon finding and obtaining the crystals, as the Pokémon show Dunsparce and Emolga the crystals. The crystals are handed over, as Dunsparce turns red. A Virizion shows up with a sparkling background, as other Pokémon fall in love with it. Virizion goes into Swanna's store, as everyone follows inside. A scene is shown with two crossing rainbows in the sky with a sparkling background. Dunsparce expresses its love to Virizion by handing over a shining crystal. Dunsparce gets rejected and runs off, as Emolga gets angry and also runs off. Virizion walks out of the store. A couple of suspicious Pawniard look on at what is going on, and walk away.

Quagsire tells the Pokémon that it saw Dunsparce speaking to the pair of suspicious Pawniard before all three walked toward a dungeon. The Pokémon decide to go after them, as Virizion looks on. The Pokémon head off to the dungeon named (Japanese: 荒れ果て谷 Desolate Valley). After progressing through the dungeon, Pawniard and Dunsparce are shown in the cliff opening. The Pawniard make some demands, as Dunsparce tries to get away but is stopped by them. Emolga and the other Pokémon arrive to confront the Pawniard and save Dunsparce. A pair of Venipede and a pair of Galvantula appear, as the Pokémon get set to battle. Before the Pokémon can battle, Virizion, the pair of Timburr, and Gurdurr appear. The Pokémon, Virizion, Emolga, and Dunsparce have a battle with the Pawniard, Venipede, and Galvantula. After defeating the boss Pokémon, Galvantula, Venipede, and Pawniard run away. Emolga, Dunsparce, and Virizion decide to join the other Pokémon. Emolga isn't happy about Virizion joining. The Pokémon exit the dungeon.

The next day, Emolga, Virizion, Dunsparce, and Pelipper greet the Pokémon outside of their home. The player then chooses a team name for the Pokémon and Pelipper flies away. Quagsire appears and shows the Pokémon that Scraggy now owns a shop at the crossroad area where Pokémon can forget and remember their moves. Pelipper drops a treasure chest, as the Pokémon open it up. The chest contains a team bag, a one-page letter, and a team badge for using Everyone Attack. The Pokémon head to the next dungeon called (Japanese: 林の横穴 Forest Cave) for their next mission. On the 7F, the Pokémon use the newly usable Everyone Attack prior to exiting the dungeon.

The next day, an explosion is heard. Gurdurr sees that Scraggy now owns a shop. Gurdurr shows the Pokémon that it has its own shop now as well. Gurdurr lets the Pokémon know that they can check the notice board for other missions they can take. The player decides on a mission to go on, and goes to a previous dungeon to complete it. After completing a mission, there is a message on the screen that says "Great Job". After doing two missions, Gurdurr tells the Pokémon that additional shops can now be built after completing missions and giving Poké and certain items for them.

After completing several missions, a fireball goes across the sky prior to the Pokémon waking up the next day. colorful circles float through the air, as the Pokémon exit their home. Other Pokémon in the Pokémon Paradise also see the colorful circles floating around. Emolga brings the Pokémon to a bulletin that the Pokémon are unsure of what it is for. The ground shakes, as the fireball heads toward the Pokémon. The Pokémon run away, as the fireball crashes to the ground. Victini appears inside of its own shop after the impact. Victini is displayed with a colorful background during its appearance.

Victini explains that it has a V-Roulette wheel where Poké can be wagered. Victini poses and wants to be a part of Pokémon Paradise. The other Pokémon become annoyed by the posing, but Victini is allowed to stay. Victini does some dancing and spinning around. The Pokémon can now go to a dungeon called (Japanese: 山あいの小道 Ravine Path) for a mission. That night, the Pokémon has a dream that has sound effects, a small flash, and a large purple flash with shock waves and someone calling out for help. The Pokémon wakes up from the dream, and thinks about what they saw and heard during it after checking on the partner Pokémon. The Pokémon recalls the first dream about Hydreigon chasing a Munna, and wonders if the Munna might be the one asking for help. The next day, the partner Pokémon wakes up and notices that the other Pokémon is still awake.

After going through another mission and then waking up the next day, Dunsparce shows the Pokémon an ice covered area in the distance. After going through another mission and then waking up the next day, an unknown figure moves through bushes toward the Pokémon Paradise. The moon is shown shining above and through the Pokémon's house. The Pokémon has another dream, this time with a voice calling their name and calling out for help. The next day, the Pokémon explains to their partner about the dream that they had. As they walk outside of their home, a Pelipper drops some papers on the ground. The Pokémon read one of the papers. Quagsire approaches them and hands the Pokémon some Poké. The Pokémon notice that the Pokémon Paradise is now empty. They go into Swanna's store and give it the Poké Quagsire gave to them. Rufflet and Herdier appear to be very worried about the disappearances.

The mysterious figure from before is again shown moving through the bushes toward Pokémon Paradise. The next day, Dunsparce, Emolga, Leavanny, and Lillipup are at the house when the Pokémon come out. Leavanny and Lillipup are worried about their friend Swadloon. The Pokémon can now go to the dungeon called (Japanese: シキサイの森 Color Forest). When they reach the 5F, the Swadloon is seen digging up a red stone and two items with a strange pattern written on them and is shocked by it. The mysterious figure is shown moving through the forest while approaching Swadloon. Swadloon turns around and screams for help, as the mysterious figure attacks. After progressing further through the dungeon, the Pokémon reach Swadloon. The items are no longer by Swadloon. The Pokémon exit the dungeon and reunite Swadloon with Leavanny and Lillipup with them hugging each other.

That night, the sky is shown without the moon, as the partner Pokémon has thoughts about the other Pokémon, as it's sleeping. The mysterious figure from before again moves toward the Pokémon Paradise, but appears very sickly and collapses to the ground. As the Pokémon go outside, a frantic Emolga is there waiting for them. As the Pokémon enter the Pokémon Paradise, several Paradise Pokémon are anxiously waiting outside of Swanna's store. The Pokémon head inside, as the mysterious figure is revealed to be an Umbreon. Umbreon lays on the bed and looks very sick. Virizion recognizes Umbreon and tells everyone all about it. The Pokémon now have access to the (Japanese: スズカゼ草原 Breezy Plains) and (Japanese: ゆうわくの戻り道 Alluring Return Path) dungeons.

After completing another dungeon, the next day Timburr brings the Pokémon back to Swanna's store to see Umbreon. Umbreon is awake and out of bed but is still not well. Umbreon explains about Magnagates, as a couple of Magnagate cards are shown on the screen. The same cards that Swadloon had discovered in the Color Forest dungeon. After Umbreon's explanation, everyone is shown to have fallen asleep during it. Umbreon is bandaged up, as the Pokémon go outside. Umbreon places the two cards in a square box, as a Magnagate portal opens up. Umbreon explains the Magnagate, and then it closes. The Pokémon have to now go to the dungeon called (Japanese: ドウコクの谷 Wailing Valley) to help Umbreon's friend Espeon.

After reaching the 4F, Espeon is shown moving through the dungeon and responding to a mysterious voice. Espeon looks very hurt as it moves through the dungeon. After reaching the 6F, there is a checkpoint where they can store items and Poké in a treasure box. After reaching the 10F, Espeon is shown barely making it to the top. Purugly corners it, along with Toxicroak. They move in to attack, as the player's Pokémon step in to protect Espeon. The Pokémon battle against Toxicroak and Purugly. After being defeated, Toxicroak and Purugly run away. The Pokémon exit the dungeon, as Umbreon and Espeon are reunited. Swadloon and Leavanny appear, as Swadloon hands over the two other Magnagate cards to Espeon. A flashback is shown of Espeon being the one that approached Swadloon in the Color Forest. Espeon saw that Swadloon had found the Magnagate cards. The Pokémon heard rustling in the bushes, so Espeon ran away and had Swadloon protect the cards. That night, the dark sky is shown as the Pokémon talk about the Magnagate portal prior to going to sleep. A flashback is shown of Umbreon trying to open the portal. The next day, the Pokémon go to check on Umbreon and Espeon, as the other Pokémon appear as well from some hiding spots.
