Gurdurr is a character in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. Gurdurr's crew prepares land for building and also builds on the land at the cost of Poké and materials.
Gurdurr started his job as a carpenter with the Timburr Bros. at an unknown point and time, as they were inspired and awed by Gurdurr's work. However, Gurdurr one day acquired an injury that prevented his body to preform the work as well as it once could, that is to say his body couldn't fully function. Because of this, Gurdurr would have to settle for his absolute best. However, his confidence in his ability as a carpenter was shattered when a client asked him to build a house. When that was done, the client showed their true colors and revealed that he was toying with Gurdurr and Timburr. Out of malicious intent, the client criticized their work harshly and torn down the constructed house. This incident shattered any pride or confidence he had left in his work and he never built or honed his building skills again.
When the player first encounters Gurdurr at the beginning of the game, he will only build their house if they bring blue gems from Stony Cave.
Before the injury on his back occurred and an incident occurring after Gurdurr completed one of his jobs, which was harshly thrown back in Gurdurr's face, he used to be more cheerful and had much more confidence in his work. However, he and the Timburr Brothers were jilted, and like most in Post Town, he followed the notion of a "dog eat dog" world and lacked the will to trust anyone. Gurdurr did not mind swindling others to do his dirty work if it was for his personal gain.
That changed, however, when the player and partner arrived at Post Town. After being defeated twice at Hazy Pass, Gurdurr was utterly flabbergasted that, despite the fact he cheated the player and partner out of their house and the injury that prevented him from working as well as he could, the player and partner still insisted he and the Timburr Bros. build their house. The partner even tells Gurdurr that they don't necessarily need a fancy home that has no heart put into it. With this, Gurdurr finally agrees to work on their home.
Following the building of the player and partner's home, Gurdurr then became what he used to be in the past: confident in his work and doing his absolute best, much to the delight of the Timburr Bros.
