Squirtle reading a job request

A job in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series is a mission that can be taken by teams for various rewards.

Jobs are typically obtained from various job boards and by entering Wonder Mail codes via the game's main menu. In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, there can be a maximum of eight on the board outside the Pelipper Post Office and four in the mailbox outside the Team Base and the player can have a maximum of eight in their job list. In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, the player's job list increases in size as the rank does. In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, the player can accept jobs from the Wigglytuff's Guild's Job Bulletin Board and Outlaw Notice Board, which may have up to eight available missions each; as well as possibly one each from customers at Spinda's Café and bottles at the Beach in the latter's case. Again, the player can have a maximum of eight jobs in their job list at a time. In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, up to eight missions can be found on the Request Board and the player's job list.

There are various limits as to what can be done:

  • Only one job per dungeon floor can be taken at a time.
  • In Red and Blue Rescue Team, if the dungeon has a rest stop, the team will exit at the rest stop instead of continuing to the next area. Consequently, missions created in Wonder Mail generators that are set in the next area cannot be taken.
  • Only one escort mission can be done at a time.
  • Some dungeons, such as the Hidden Land and Temporal Tower, will never have missions randomly created for them, nor will any dungeon that can't be revisited. Such missions created in Wonder Mail generators cannot be taken.
    • Similarly, jobs generated or received from Wonder Mail codes cannot be taken if they take place in a dungeon which the player has not unlocked yet.

Types of Jobs

Story

Reason: Check these for the remake too.

Two storyline dungeons in Red and Blue Rescue Team, Uproar Forest and Wish Cave, as well as the optional dungeon Howling Forest, are unlocked by selecting special jobs from the Job Bulletin Board. These jobs do not have Wonder Mail codes, will disappear completely from the board after the dungeon is unlocked, and won't appear in the job list.

Escort

In this job, the player is required to guide a low-level Pokémon through a dungeon. The objective is to either reach a certain floor (which may or may not be specified in the job's description) or bring the client to a certain Pokémon on that floor. In Red and Blue Rescue Team, Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, the entire team will be treated as having fainted if a client is defeated and cannot be revived.

There are two different scenarios in Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, where the player has to take the Pokémon to a locked door or Golden Chamber. A Key is not required for the former scenario.

Rescue

This job tasks the player with finding a lost Pokémon in a dungeon, either the client or another Pokémon. The job cannot be completed if the Pokémon faints before being rescued (such as through damaging weather conditions).

Bring item

This job requires the player to deliver a specified item to the client waiting in a dungeon. It cannot be completed if the player's team lacks that item.

Find item

This job requires the player to find a certain item in a dungeon. In Red and Blue Rescue Team, no floor is specified, while a floor is chosen in Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky where the item is generated by default. Taking this type of job with the item already in the team's possession and using an Escape Orb on the first floor will clear it.

Defeat outlaw

In this job, the player is required to defeat an outlaw Pokémon on the specified floor. It does not exist in Red and Blue Rescue Team. This job has several variations:

  • The outlaw may run from the player's team when they arrive on the floor. The job cannot be completed if the outlaw reaches the floor's stairs. If the outlaw knows Teleport, it will be used.
    • In this scenario, the outlaw may be holding a stolen item which must be returned to the client Pokémon, however, any matching item carried by the team will also work. The stolen item will be sticky by default, likely to prevent the outlaw from using any consumable items.
      • In a stolen item scenario, the outlaw may instead be hidden amongst the floor's normal enemies. Their species will not be known prior to encountering them.
  • The outlaw may be leading a team. In this case, the floor will be changed to a special layout where Wonder Orbs cannot be used. This scenario is only present in Explorers of Sky.
  • The outlaw may be in a Monster House room, even in a dungeon where they don't normally appear. This scenario is only present in Explorers of Sky.

Additionally, in Explorers of Sky, normal scenarios can also task the player with guiding Deputy Magnemite or Officer Magnezone until the outlaw is defeated. The normal consequences for a fainted escort apply here.

Special Missions

Main article: Seven Treasures

This job type can only be received by obtaining the Secret Rank upon clearing Crevice Cave. They are exclusively obtained by Wonder Mail codes in Explorers of Time and Darkness, while players in Explorers of Sky can receive them from customers in Spinda's Café. Upon taking the job, its specified dungeon is unlocked and the top-secret job deletes itself.

Challenge Letter

This job type only exists in Explorers of Sky, where they are received from customers in Spinda's Café. The player is required to reach the specified dungeon floor and defeat the challenger. This is treated as a boss battle; Wonder Orbs cannot be used and rescue is unavailable.

Five unique variations exist where the challengers are Mewtwo in Sky Stairway, Raikou in Southeastern Islands, Entei in Inferno Cave, Suicune in Treacherous Waters, or Jirachi in Star Cave. All of these Pokémon will join the player's team after clearing the job, after which it will not be randomly created again. While the first four require the dungeon to be unlocked for creation, Jirachi's job unlocks Star Cave and requires the completion of Bidoof's Wish instead.

Treasure Memo

This job type only exists in Explorers of Sky, where they are found in bottles on the beach. The job's description does not reveal the specified dungeon; only the floor number and a hint that describes where a treasure has been hidden. The player's task is to decipher the hint and find the treasure. Traps are preset on these special floors and cannot be destroyed, with Warp Traps sometimes being placed to facilitate transportation past impassible terrain. Higher-ranked jobs of this type may require multiple Keys or even the ability to get past walls.

Job Ranks

Red and Blue Rescue Team

Reason: Difficulty values for a Friend Area reward..

Each dungeon has an internal difficulty value assigned to each of its floors that is used to determine the rewards for the mission. An escort mission raises this value by 2 (but not above 15).

Sometimes, a job might offer double the Poké it normally awards.

Reason: Confirm the assigned ranks of missing floors and the rewards for each rank.

Escort and outlaw missions raise the rank by one stage (but not above ★9). These increases do not stack; an outlaw mission where the player is accompanied by Magnemite or Magnezone is still raised by only one stage.
