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 at the Wigglytuff Club for 7,500 Poké after completing the main storyline. It is in the Volcano area, along with Scorched Plains and the Volcanic Pit, and has a capacity of seven Pokémon. All Pokémon here are at least partially Fire-type. All the Pokémon that reside in this Friend Area can be found in both Mt. Blaze and Fiery Field, or evolve from Pokémon found in those places.
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.
The sight of this crater spouting spectacular plumes of lava greatly satisfies fire-loving Pokémon.
