Dusk Forest (Japanese: くろのもり Black Forest) is a future dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. Since this is a dungeon that exists in the future, it cannot be revisited outside of a friend rescue, and no Pokémon may be recruited in this dungeon.

It is unlocked after defeating Spiritomb at the Sealed Ruin. Grovyle will accompany the player in the search for Celebi. When the player first comes across Dusk Forest, the player gets a strange sensation that they have had before which the player later realizes is because Dusk Forest is the future version of Foggy Forest.

In Explorers of Sky, Dusk Forest can be revisited in the Special Episode In the Future of Darkness, and is shortened to seven floors. It ends with Grovyle and Dusknoir being ambushed by six Sableye at the Black Swamp.

Gameplay

The floors are ranked E and S, for purpose of Treasure Boxes and friend rescues.

The first three floors are medium-sized with 3 to 9 rooms, with the other being large sized, generating 3-14 rooms on floor 5, 3-17 on floors 4, 6 and 8, and 3-18 on floor 7. There is 1-4 items on floors 1-3, 2-5 on floors 4-7 and 3-6 on floor 8. There is usually 2-3 starting enemies on each floor.

The IQ Booster activates on every even floor. The turn limit is 1000. The enemies in this dungeon have 26IQ, granting them Status Checker IQ skill. There is light darkness on floors 7 and 8.

The above also describes this dungeon's Special Episode version, where applicable.

Trivia

  • The geography of the entrance to this dungeon is very similar to the geography of where Wigglytuff's Guild set up camp for their expedition earlier in the game.
    • This is referenced in the hero's dialogue. When the player reaches camp, the hero notes that it feels like they have been there before. The protagonist later remembers this feeling at Dusk Forest.
  • The alternate tileset used in the second half of the dungeon is the only one that's used in Special Episode.
