Pikachu and Squirtle in front of the Team Base
The rescue team base (Japanese: 救助隊の基地 rescue team base) is a place in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team that can be used to save. The leader of the rescue team sleeps here. The rescue team's mail is delivered to the Mailbox in front of the Team Base.
To the east of the Team Base is Pokémon Square, Friend Areas are to the west, while dungeons are to the south.
After successfully rescuing Caterpie from Tiny Woods, the partner brings the player to a cottage. They decide to make the cottage their Team Base.
After completing Wynaut and Wobbuffet's mission, which involves defeating the Mankey gang in the Uproar Forest, they offer a peeled Chestnut, which is in turn used to convince the Mankey gang to help renovate the Team Base. The Team Base is upgraded to look like the player.
Outside the Team Base there is a flag whose design represents the player. After receiving access to the Friend Area Sky Blue Plains and renovating the Team Base, a mission to rescue Smeargle may appear on the noticeboard. Accepting the mission will unlock Howling Forest. After completing the mission, Smeargle will offer to join the rescue team. When visited in its Friend Area, Sky Blue Plains, Smeargle will offer to change the flag's design once per day.
After doing certain things, the Rescue Team may obtain figures. They are placed outside the Team Base. There are four figures in total:
The design of the team base is different depending on the Pokémon the player is.

A Team Base, based on the pre-renovation design of the Team Base for Squirtle, Totodile, Mudkip, and Psyduck, briefly appeared in the beginning of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Team Go-Getters Out of the Gate!, serving as the base of operations for the newly formed Team Go-Getters. The interior of the base contains a pond where Squirtle, who was newly requited by Team Go-Getters and was in reality a human who had turned into a Pokémon, took a swim during his first visit here.
