(Japanese: ポケモン不思議のダンジョン 空の探検隊 Pokémon Fushigi no Dungeon Sora no Tankentai, transl. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky) is a game in development by Chunsoft, and a sister game to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness. The game was first announced in CoroCoro, which released the first details in January 2009. It was officially released in Japan on April 18, 2009.


On January 10th, 2009, Serebii.net received the first details from CoroCoro, revealing that the featured starter Pokémon would include Pokémon new to the series along with starters from previous installments. These include the following: Phanpy, Vulpix, Riolu, Shinx, and Eevee, returning to the starting lineup from Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team. Every starter Pokémon from the previous games can now be a partner as well, bringing the total of starting Pokémon to 21, only 19 of which are available to the player, since Meowth and Munchlax can only be selected as partners. Additionally, those Pokémon selected as partners will have a fixed gender. On January 11th, 2009, according to Serebii, low resolution pictures of the game were found, confirming the information to be true. The game appears to be a continuation of the storyline of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness or it may be another version of the same game with more content. On January 13th, 2009, Serebii managed to get a higher resolution of one of the pictures shown by blueskY and Filb on January 11th, 2009. The picture shows Dusknoir and Grovyle being cornered by four Sableye.

On January 15th, the Japanese Pokémon site announced the game, as well as providing artwork and screenshots. The game appears to take on various goings-on from before the guild even started, hinted at by the screenshots of Bidoof's apparent family and an Igglybuff and Armaldo.

New features

  • Players can now play as different Pokémon. These are Phanpy, Vulpix, Riolu, Shinx and Eevee. Every starter Pokémon from the previous games can now be a partner as well
  • Players can now play the music used in the game with the Sky Jukebox.
  • There is a new place called Spinda's Cafe where the following can be found:
    • Spinda's Drink Stand grants access to the Unexplored Land, and it also allows players to make own their food.
    • Explore Recycle & Big Treasure allows players to exchange excess items for other items. The more items exchanged, the better the items available will be. Players may also get lottery tickets to obtain items.
  • There is a new location called the Secret Bazaar which is found randomly in dungeons. It is run by a Kirlia. The bazaar has several stalls found inside.
    • Mime Jr.'s stall restores the player's health and also feeds them.
    • Swalot's give players items called Luck Pockets. They may hold useful items inside them.
    • Lickilicky's will help players clean items in their inventory.
    • Shedinja's gives players a chance to escape the dungeon sooner.
  • Players can find a statue of Arceus in a new dungeon called Destiny's Tower. The story here involves a new item called the Time-Space Orb.

Special episodes

During the course of the game, players can engage in various scenarios that expand upon the story of some of the different characters.

  • Bidoof's Wish: The first episode features the past of the Bidoof in the Wigglytuff Guild just after it entered the guild. It goes to the Star Cave to have its wish granted by a Jirachi.
  • Genius Igglybuff: The second episode features Wigglytuff as an Igglybuff. It explores his past and explains how he became an explorer.
  • Today's Scream: The third episode features the Sunflora in the guild. It was given a mission to seek out a Haunter but it was apparently unprepared for what it as about to face.
  • Charm's Arrival: The fourth episode featured Team Charm and their past. Team AWD can also be found here.
  • Into the Dark future: The fifth episode is set in the dark future. Grovyle and Dusknoir work together when Primal Dialga tries to get rid of them.
  • The sixth mission features Shaymin. After completing the game and heading to Spinda's Cafe, players will be taken to Shaymin's Village where they will meet Team Frontier, a team made of a Breloom, Machoke and Mawile and encounter Team Razor Wind. A Shaymin will take the player's team to the Sky's Summit where they will find the Sky's Present.The dungeon works similarly to Mt. Battle from Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. Every 10 floors are separated by base camps and can be revisited at any time. After reaching the top on the first visit players will battle some Grimer and Muk. On the second visit, Shaymin can be recruited.
