Squirtle and Chimchar in front of the Swap Shop

Croagunk's Swap Shop (Japanese:グレッグルのトレードてん) is the name of the shop where rare items can be traded or received in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky.

The Swap Shop is found on sublevel two (the lowest level) of Wigglytuff's Guild, across from the area where one must climb into for Sentry Duty. It is, as its name suggests, run by Croagunk. At the beginning of the game, the Swap Shop is not open. However, shortly after going through Apple Woods to find Perfect Apples, Croagunk calls the player and their partner over and explains how the shop is run. Croagunk has a fee of 150 Poké for each swap.

In Explorers of Time and Darkness

If one were to have two Pokémon-specific items, known as exclusive items, they could trade it for a rarer exclusive item of that species. For some species, there is a third rank, where the rarer exclusive item must be traded with the two other exclusive items in order for the rarest of the exclusive items for that species to be received. However, this only works if the species has more than one exclusive item.

An example is Bulbasaur. The Bulba-Claw and Bulba-Fang can be traded for a Grass-Guard, which then can be traded with the Bulba-Claw and Bulba-Fang for a Leafy Tie, the rarest exclusive item for Bulbasaur. Some items can also be traded for regardless of which Pokémon they're intended for such as Raichu's Zapper Scarf (☆☆☆). It can be traded for any five items, regardless of rarity.

Exclusive items can be identified by the stars in their item summaries. The number of stars represents the rarity of the item. It also shows which Pokémon the item can be used with.

In Explorers of Sky

Minor changes have occurred in Explorers of Sky, where a player can trade non-related exclusive items. However, one must wait for a desired item to appear, and will need to trade more items that would be needed if they were related. For a three star item (☆☆☆) five items must be traded, for a two star item (☆☆) three items must be traded and for a one star item (☆) two items must be traded. Also, the items in the Treasure Bag and the items in Kangaskhan Storage are presented together.
