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

Plot

Gameplay 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 Pokémon Paradise entrance, as Scraggy runs off again. The Pokémon head off to the next dungeon called (Japanese: カゲロウ峠 Mayfly 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 that 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.
