In this post I'm going to go in depth explaining the various aspects of Explorers of Sky. I'm going to elaborate on the difference between Explorers of Time/Darkness, and itself. It is really just an improvement on PMD2, but with more added features (hence why I have dubbed it PMD2.5).

Here we go. I'll include all the info I possibly can! Feel free to question or comment on anything you may see.

Please note. I’m enclosing a lot of info about the game. Spoilers are to be expected, especially in sections 3, 7, and 8. If you want to know more about the game and don’t care about new spoilers, read ahead. The main plot is exactly the same as in PMD2, but there are extra features – which is what this post shall contain. Additionally, if there is any new info I will add it to this post.

1. Differences between EoS and PMD2
2. Spinda’s Café
3. The 5 Special Episodes
4. Lookalike Items
5. The Seven Treasures and Other Missions
6. New Ranks
7. Sky Peak
8. New Areas
9. The Arceus Event (not here right now)

1. Differences between EoS and PMD2


~There are now 19 possible starters. Shinx, Eevee, Riolu, Phanpy, and Vulpix are now available as starters (although Eevee was available in PMD1, but not PMD2). Skitty and Munchlax can’t be obtained by the hero, but can be the partner.

~Wonder Mail is now Wonder Mail S (with the S standing for Sky), and it consists of 34 characters, broken into two groups of 5-7-5 characters (instead of 24 characters). As a result, Wonder Mail between EoS and PMD2 is incompatible.

~Items and teams can be traded between EoS and PMD2, with the exception of items that are new to EoS (they cannot be sent to PMD2). Also, if you trade an Exclusive Item of a 1-star rarity from PMD2 into EoS, you can choose to have it upgraded into its 2-star rarity counterpart.

~If you fail a dungeon exploration, you only lose half your money, instead of all of it.

~There is now a new kind of trap tile, called the Random Trap. The icon on the tile is shaped like a hand, with a finger pointing upward. When triggered, it draws its effect from one other randomly chosen trap on the floor - and it affects the entire party!

~There are roughly 40 new musical tracks introduced in EoS that were not in PMD2. Most of them have to do with the Special Episodes. The Crystal Cave track was slightly altered (you can hear the difference about 4 seconds into the track), and Marowak Dojo instead plays a remix of PMD1's Makuhita Dojo. Other new PMD1 remixes include the Jungle Friend Area, Stormy Sea, Mount Steel, Buried Relic, Magma Cavern, and two remixes of Magma Cavern Pit. (The existing PMD1 remixes, such as the Blizzard Island medley, are retained.)

~The game has a DS Download Play option. You can send a demo to your friend’s DS. It involves you going through a dungeon (usually less than 10 floors in length) just to get the hang of the game. It doesn’t have all the game’s sound effects, however. It takes at least 60 seconds to download to each DS system, so be patient when your friend downloads it.

~You can now save your game at the watering hole which is at the crossroads (where the second Chimecho Assembly bell is located), instead of just your bed at the guild or Sharpedo Bluff. This is a big time-saver.

~There are more dungeons accessible. Two names I know of are Star Cave and Oblivion Forest, and I’ll edit in more as I find out.

~Croagunk’s Swap Shop now has items available for all species of Pokemon. In addition, there are specials at the shop where you can trade either 2, 3, or 5 exclusive items of any kind for a 1-, 2-, or 3-star item, respectively. This allows you to cut down big on the time required to search for items! The specials change every day, but are relative usually to your team members, whose items will appear more often. He will still offer his normal services as well, that is, doing specific swaps (Eevee Card + Eevee Tail = Evolve Charm, for example).

~There are now new things called “Lookalike Items”. They have the same name as another item, but they have a vastly different effect – usually bad! I’ll explain them in a different section.

~There is another new area, the Sky Peak. It is unlocked after you graduate from the guild. It has a rather long story behind it, so I’ll explain it in a later section.

~You and your partner are able to evolve as soon as Manaphy tells you about the Marine Resort. (Of course, you must also fulfill the requirements for your species as well!

~Escorts are now longer just level 7; although they are still low-leveled they can be as high as level 15.

~Instead of there just being one kind of outlaw mission, there are now 6.
1) The same outlaw missions standardly found in PMD2.
2) The outlaw will be two squares away from you, and will trigger a monster house.
3) The outlaw will be two squares away, and try to run away from you. This usually involves an item. They'll try to head for the stairs, so stop them!
4) The outlaw will make a whole room like a boss encounter, and will have various cronies. You just need to defeat the outlaw to complete the mission. In this, you can't use Wonder Orbs.
5) The outlaw will be somewhere on the floor. Chase them down and defeat them. This always involves an item.
6) Same as #1, but either Magnezone or Magnemite will come along with you as an escort. However, as will all escorts they have low levels.

~There is a new area called Spinda's Cafe. It contains two main areas: Spinda's Juice Bar, where you can drink items such as Gummis (note that drinking Gummis here always will give a stat augment); and Wynaut's Recycle Shop, where you can recycle items you don't need for others. I will elaborate more on Spinda's Cafe later in the section. Some Pokemon will also want to give you jobs here.

~There is now something called the Secret Bazaar. It’s found inside dungeons, and is found at random. Maybe, just maybe, while exploring, you’ll find a secret staircase! This takes you to the bazaar. It contains four stations:
1) Mime Jr.’s spa. For the cost of 100 Poke, he will fully heal the HP, PP, and Belly of your entire team – a good bargain for dungeon-crawling!
2) Swalot’s grab bags. For the cost of 100 Poke you get a grab bag, which contains a random item. I don’t know if I have bad luck or what, but both times I did this, I only got an Oran Berry.
3) Lickilicky’s cleaning station. For 100 Poke he will clean all your items in your bag (the same action as a Cleanse Orb) – another very handy service.
4) Shedinja’s secret passage. For 100 Poke he will take you out of the dungeon (like an Escape Orb). I haven’t done this myself, but I assume there are no strings attached.

The stairs here will take you to the next floor up of the dungeon you were in. That’s basically it, but it is a very useful service.

~The missions for the Seven Treasures are now given out by Pokemon at Spinda’s Café, as opposed to PMD2, where they were via Wonder Mail or WFC.

~There are now 'Messages in a Bottle', which wash up on the beach every now and then. These will contain a mission.

~There are two new types of missions. The first is a Challenge Letter, which is usually given to you in Spinda Cafe by a Pokemon. They take the same form as the 4th kind of outlaw encounter, but there are usually only 3 Pokemon. The second is a Treasure Memo. It will list a certain place, but it's not directly given; you have to figure out what it's talking about and go there. The treasure can even be behind a wall, so you may want a Warp/Mobile Scarf or Ghost-type.

~The rescue team rank system works differently. Master Rank is now only at 20000 points, and there are ranks even higher than that. I’ll elaborate that in a later section.

2. Spinda’s Café

Spinda’s Café is an area that opens up to you very early on in the game. It’s unlocked for you even before Croagunk’s Swap Shop, and it’s located at the crossroads.

All sorts of Pokemon go in and out of this place. You may find that a Pokemon will approach you and personally give you a mission (which you are free to accept or reject). This will change every day. There are two main stations here: Spinda’s Juice Bar and Wynaut’s recycle shop.

In Spinda’s Juice Bar (the stand on the left), you can give Spinda a food item, such as an apple, seed, or Gummi, and he’ll make it into a drink for you. This allows you to eat items such as Gummis outside of dungeons in the form of delightful beverages. (Notice that he uses a tail shaker to make his drinks.) This is what will happen at the juice bar:

~If you give Spinda something such as an Apple or Oran Berry, it has no base effect.
~If you give him a Gummi, it will boost your IQ, and always give you a +1 to a random stat. (If it’s a Wonder Gummi, it instead gives +3 to a random stat.)
~If you give him a Joy Seed, and you drink it, it raises the level of the drinker by 1. (Doom Seed, presumably, has the reverse effect. I haven’t tried. Golden Seed presumably boosts level by 5, but again, I haven’t tried it.)

In addition, drinks can also have random effects. These are the effects I have seen. Please note that the only drinks I mix are Gummi drinks, but presumably these effects can happen with any drink ingredient.

~The drink will further boost the drinker’s IQ (more than it has already). If this is the case, Spinda will say “I’ve got a good feeling about this drink!” This side effect, if any, happens the most often.
~You may find the location of a new dungeon. Spinda won’t say anything, but you’ll notice it written on the bottom of your glass. This will be a dungeon like Oran Forest, i.e. the kind of dungeon unlocked only via Wonder Mail. They can also be unlocked this way. This has happened to me a few times.
~You may have a Pokemon ask to join your team. S/he will notice how you ‘examine your drink before drinking’. In any case, the new recruit will be level 1, like recruits from a job. Unlike the guild recruits, if you refuse, you do not get 1000 Poke. You get nothing. This has only happened to me twice.
~The drink will give +2 or +3 to a random stat of the drinker. If this is the case Spinda will say something like “THIS!! This drink is so miraculous I couldn’t have made it again if I had tried!” This has only happened to me twice.

Wynaut’s Recycle Shop (the stand on the right) lets you recycle your unneeded items to receive other ones. The more items will become available dependent on your Rescue Team’s rank, or as you progress through the plot. You can even obtain such items as Reviver Seeds or Stamina Bands here. Certain dungeons can also be found this way (the Wonder Mail unlock dungeons, that is).

You can either recycle for a specific item, in which specific trades are needed (for example, an Oran Berry requires 2 Apples, and a Cleanse Orb requires 3 Grimy Foods), or you can recycle for a Prize Ticket, which only requires a certain number (the items can be anything, except for projectile items such as Iron Thorns). These Prize Tickets can be redeemed for prizes at the Wynaut Recycle Shop. (Higher level tickets usually equate to better prizes.) You’ll be asked to pick one of three colors – Red, Blue, or Yellow. Then, one of four things can happen:

~You have won the prize drawing, and receive an item, usually a TM, that corresponds to your ticket.
~You haven’t won, but you get a small consolation prize. It’s usually something like a Cleanse Orb or Oran Berry, but some items obtained are quite useful.
~You’ve won big! To celebrate your big win, the back wall blows open while Ludicolo with his Bellossom posse dance for you. You will usually receive a powerful TM or a nutrient such as Protein. (The first time I did this, I won with a Silver Ticket. Ironically, I got HM Surf – better prizes than Gold Tickets get me!) This doesn’t happen often, but when it does it gets recorded in your Adventure Log (in its own separate entry), in addition to your fabulous prize.
~You’ve epicly lost…It’s kinda sad, as it looks like you’re about to win big, but instead you lose big. You usually just get something like an Oran Berry. ;.;

In addition, the shop may have special offers on items such as Link Boxes or Protein. In this case, you only can get one a day, and they will only be available for a limited time. You do need specific items to recycle with (vitamins require 3 Oran Berries plus a specific seed, and Link Boxes require 3 of each type of berry).

3. The 5 Special Episodes

As you progress through the main plot you will steadily unlock Special Episodes. Special Episodes are small sidequests in which you play as a certain other person (such as Bidoof) and progress through a subplot (which is related in some way to the main story). Upon completion of each special episode, all items and money collected are stored in the bank and Kangaskhan Storage, and you will also unlock some more tracks in the Sky Jukebox (which I’ll get to in the Sky Peak section). By the time you graduate from the guild you will have unlocked all 5 special episodes for play. The Special Episodes are as follows.

1) Bidoof’s Wish

Bidoof is an apprentice at the guild, but he wants to be more appreciated. He hears of a Pokemon named Jirachi in Star Cave, who can grant any wish. He heads down there with a Snover, but he is deceived and ambushed. However, the Guild comes to his rescue and chases the bandits off, while Bidoof heads deeper into the cave. Upon finding and awakening Jirachi, he wishes that he could have some new friend at the guild, and that wish is fulfilled when the main protagonist and his/her partner join the guild.


2) Igglybuff the Prodigy

Igglybuff is playing with his friends near his LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE LOLZ, when two bullies, Banette and Skorupi, get the idea to go exploring in Murky Forest. Igglybuff blithely goes along with them, and in the deepest part of the forest, they find the ex-explorer Armaldo. Banette and Skorupi are terrified, but Igglybuff is not, and after deciphering a puzzle of a map, he goes exploring with Armaldo in various places to collect treasure. Ultimately, it is found out Armaldo is an outlaw (possibly an ex-outlaw) and arrested. Igglybuff is heartbroken, but Armaldo gives him a Defend Globe, the very first treasure they found exploring, before he is led away by Magnezone.


3) Today’s Oh My Gosh

Sunflora is asked to apprehend a villain dubbed the 'Invincible Haunter', so called because he is supposedly invincible. She chases Haunter into Spring Cave, and defeats him, but he is completely revived after defeat, and goes deeper into the cave. This repeats twice, with the second and third occasions having Loudred come to her rescue, with the reason that Chatot sent him out to check on her. Sunflora deciphers the mystery of the 'Invincible Haunter', and she and Loudred apprehend and defeat Haunter. Magnezone rewards Sunflora with a Sun Scarf, and Loudred is punished by going to fetch Perfect Apples for sneaking off without permission (proving to Sunflora that Loudred was indeed worried for her safety, and that Chatot didn't send him at all). Sunflora then later thanks Loudred for caring for her (although this does not happen in the episode).


4) Here Comes Team Charm!

The intrepid exploration team, Team Charm, has now heard of a great treasure inside Boulder Quarry. They go to pursue it, but run into the infamous Team AWD...and Wigglytuff (but not at the same time, and not in that order). With the help of Wigglytuff, Team Charm deciphers the mystery of Boulder Quarry, but they ultimately square off against Team AWD for the treasure. It is revealed that the guardian of the treasure is a Ditto, who had appeared to them in three different guises before. He shows them all the treasure - a Time Gear - upon which Teams AWD and Charm leave. Charm, constantly upbeat, ask if Wigglytuff will go exploring with them, and as an incentive, they offer to give him a Perfect Apple - if he can catch them!


5) In the Future of Darkness

The final special episode, unlocked upon guild graduation, covers what happens after Grovyle forces Dusknoir back to the future. Dusknoir gets word of a new right-hand man of Dark Dialga, and he is being replaced. Enraged, Dusknoir offers to team up with Grovyle to find Dark Dialga. Grovyle accepts reluctantly, and the two journey to Temporal Tower. Dark Dialga is not there, so they head to find Celebi, who has apparently been captured. Over the course of the trek, Dusknoir asks Grovyle why he does what he does, and Grovyle replies that it is not how long one lives, but of what one makes with life, and that will make his spirit live on in the hearts of others. When they find Celebi, held captive by Spiritomb, Grovyle rushes to attack Spiritomb, but is caught in a trap engineered by Dusknoir himself. He reveals the whole plan was a ruse - that he plans to destroy Grovyle's spirit, inhabit his body personally, and prevent the past from being changed. Grovyle responds that he realized that there was one point where he saw the two of them bond, and asks him why he does what he does, since Dusknoir only acts with the goal of not eternally disappearing. Dusknoir rescues Grovyle, but is promptly attacked by Dark Dialga, who by this point has gone completely insane. As Dusknoir is attacked, the sky breaks out in an aurora, and a breeze begins to blow, signaling the return of time - but eventually, the vanishing of the dark future. Dark Dialga vanishes and heads to the Passage of Time, and Grovyle teams up with Dusknoir and Celebi to chase after Dark Dialga to defeat him. It is at this point that, after defeating Dark Dialga, time starts running again, and Grovyle, along with Dusknoir and Celebi, begin to disappear. When the future is fully restored, they find themselves still alive. Thinking it a miracle, Dialga explains it was not, that it may have been the action of a being higher than himself, alluding to Arceus.

4. Lookalike Items

Lookalike Items are something new to EoS. They look like a certain item in terms of appearance, but they have a vastly different effect! Here are the lookalike items I have seen in my travels, and I’ll list them in alphabetical order. I will add them as I see them (or remember them)

Dough Seed
The Doom Seed’s lookalike. This actually has a beneficial effect; if you eat it, more money will appear on the next floor. “It’s someone’s lucky day! Ka-ching!”

Dropeye Seed
The Eyedrop Seed’s lookalike. The effect is exactly the opposite; when you eat it your visibility will be severely restricted, and you’ll only be able to see enemies and items within a 1-square radius, even when inside a room (this is called the Dropeye status).

Gaggle Specs
The Goggle Specs's lookalike. When equipped it makes you stand out, so any enemy can see you. (The Goggle Specs has an effect that basically sets a constant Eyedrop Seed status.)

Gone Pebble
The Geo Pebble’s lookalike. When you use it, you will bring to mind a very sad memory. Fighting back tears, you now gain the Endure status (which is a very beneficial effect).

Mix Elixir
The Max Elixir's lookalike. Works the same as a Max Elixir, but it only works for Linoone. No word yet on what it does to other species of Pokemon.

Oren Berry
The Oran Berry’s lookalike. When you eat it (or throw it), the target takes 10 HP of damage.

No-Slip Cap
The No-Stick Cap’s lookalike. While equipped it will randomly make items in your treasure bag sticky – the exact opposite effect of the No-Stick Cap!

Reviser Seed
The Reviver Seed’s lookalike. It becomes a Plain Seed after use. You revive…and then…you realize that is an S, not a V. Then you burst into spontaneous laughter and faint.

Slip Seed
The Sleep Seed’s lookalike. This also has a beneficial effect; if you eat it, while on the floor you gain the ability to walk over water (the Slip status).

Via Seed
The Vile Seed’s lookalike. This has the same effect as the Warp Seed; it also causes the target to say “See ya!” before warping.

Wander Gummi
The Wonder Gummi’s lookalike. Wonder Gummis are only found at the end of Zero Isle and in Golden Chamber jobs, so you’ll know it’s a fake. However, if you eat it, you get the Blinker status (the same as the Blinker Seed).

5. The Seven Treasures and Other Missions

The Seven Treasures are items that exist in PMD2 and EoS that are within secret dungeons. When held by the team leader, they increase the odds of you recruiting a specific type of Pokemon. As can be expected, there are 7. However, since Wonder Mail from PMD2 is incompatible with EoS, new Wonder Mail is needed. I have been collecting Wonder Mail S for these missions and will now present them to you. (I’m assuming right now that they’re the same in PMD2 as they are in EoS, as I have to keep the missions to give you the codes; if I accept the job, it is removed from my job list instantly. The info is mostly the same.)

So far I have all of the 7 Wonder Mail S. Please note, all letters in the Wonder Mail S are uppercase, and there is no O, only a zero. Please note, also, that the difficulty levels are a general guideline. All Pokemon in these dungeons have levels between 40 and 50, so although you can take on them right away, it is not the wisest idea.

Giant Volcano – Has 20(?) floors, boss Heatran. Reward: Fiery Drum. Difficulty: Medium-hard.
Wonder Mail S:

Code:
R-6S# +M33MQM 6K5RN
5T65+ +9#N%K% 8Q3P5


Surrounded Sea – Has 50 floors, boss Kyogre. Reward: Aqua-Monica. Difficulty: Hard.
Wonder Mail S:

Code:

Shimmer Desert – Has 10 floors, boss Groudon. Reward: Terra Cymbal. Difficulty: Easy.
Wonder Mail S:

Code:
0270@ -C8W3%W 0QFWS

Mount Avalanche – Has 20 floors, boss Articuno. Reward: Icy Flute. Difficulty: Medium.
Wonder Mail S:

Wonder Mail S:

Code:

Giratina Origin Form is possible to get, but I don’t know how right now. When I take on World Abyss I’ll tell you.

Sky Stairway – Has 50 floors, boss Rayquaza. Reward: Sky Melodica. Difficulty: Very Hard.
Wonder Mail S:

Code:

Wonder Mail S:

Code:

P94%R &H1N4NX S9HN-


~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here I'll be putting other special missions that you can get to grab your attention.

~Labyrinth Cave
This was another mission in PMD2 that also reappears in EoS. Labyrinth Cave is a dungeon 10 floors deep, ending in a boss battle against a Gabite. Defeating Gabite gives you a Gabite Scale, which has the same effect as a Heal Seed. The initial mission is to retrieve a Gabite Scale for a sick friend. Here is one possible Wonder Mail S for Labyrinth Cave (although you can find it yourself by checking in at Spinda's Cafe).

Wonder Mail S (difficulty C):

Code:
7@YK- 2#4Y+HM NM80J
16K8= 911R+37 JSKSC


~Jirachi's challenge letter
This is handed to you by a Pokemon in Spinda's Cafe. Jirachi will be awaiting to battle you at B16F of Star Cave. (It's the same dungeon from Bidoof's Wish, except both parts are combined into one long dungeon, with B8F as the dividing point.) When you defeat Jirachi you may recruit it (meaning he's not in the Final Maze anymore). It is level 32.

Wonder Mail S (difficulty B):

Code:
8PJ+9 8M2T1H- 8N=%J
52HQ0 XNWNCT4 &7X0C

6. New Ranks

The ranking system is primarily the same in EoS as it is in PMD2, up to Ultra Rank at 8000 points, but after that it deviates. These are the ranks I know of, and the points required to get them, plus the rewards obtained. This list will be expanded as I increase in rank, so keep posted.

Hyper Rank - 10000 points - Ginseng
Master Rank – 13500 points – Joy Seed
Master * Rank – 17000 points – Access to Oblivion Forest
Master ** Rank – 21000 points - Access to Treacherous Waters
Master *** Rank - 25000 points - Access to Southeastern Islands
????? Rank - 100,000 points - ?????



Quote:
7. Sky Peak

The Sky Peak is a new place in Explorers of Sky, containing its own little subplot. It’s unlocked after you graduate from the guild. You start in the Shaymin Village, which is home to all of the Shaymin. It contains Shaymin’s Delivery Service, which delivers Sky Gifts to friends (a Sky Gift is something only found in Sky Peak, which contains nothing if you open it, but has a gift if you give it to an NPC friend, who gets a warm fuzzy feeling), although this is unlocked only after you’ve climbed Sky Peak once. It also has an assembly bell and a Kangaskhan Rock. Once you have prepared sufficiently for an exploration, you will ascend the mountain.

Sky Peak is a dungeon divided into 10 stages, each containing three floors before you progress to a save point. In all, there are roughly 35 floors to traverse. The peak contains enemies from Mystifying Forest and Mount Travail. As you ascend the mountain for the first time, you will have a Shaymin guide to escort you up there. Shaymin is level 55.

There are save points at every in-between point, except for the 5th Station Clearing, and the peak itself. At both of those places, there are boss encounters, which are actually quite difficult (the peak especially so). At the even-numbered Station Clearings, in addition to a save point, there is a Kangaskhan Rock where you may manage your storage. Also, each time you reach an even-numbered station clearing, there, Project P will set up a rescue base there, with a new service called Drifblim’s Gondola. Drifblim will transport you between any even-numbered clearings and the base of the mountain, free of charge. The exception to this is the 8th Station Clearing, although there is a Kangaskhan Rock for storage there.

Once you reach the peak and defeat the boss there, you are presented with a beautiful view from the peak of the mountain. Your Shaymin guide will then change form and let you fly back down to the base of the mountain.

After you have cleared Sky Peak once, Shaymin’s Delivery Service will also open, and a Shaymin in the village will give you a Gracidea once a day. You use the Gracidea in a dungeon, and that will cause your team’s Shaymin to Form Change, until the day’s end, when it reverts. Additionally, if you reach the peak a second time you are able to recruit your Shaymin guide (what is advised is you take Drifblim’s Gondola to the 6th clearing, then climb the rest from there). Just as before, Shaymin is level 55. You will also unlock the Sky Jukebox on the main menu of Explorers of Sky. This is the game’s sound room and lets you listen to any music you’ve heard in the game at your leisure. So no more climbing the Hidden Land just to hear track #68!

8. New Areas

There are certain dungeons introduced in Explorers of Sky that are not found in Explorers of Time/Darkness. With each new dungeon I discover I'll post here regarding it, and the requirements needed to obtain it. Please note, I will only put info on NEW dungeons. Info regarding pre-existing dungeons from Explorers of Time/Darkness will NOT be included.

~Oblivion Forest
Unlocked after obtaining the Master * Rank. This dungeon has restrictions placed upon it before you enter:

You can only bring up to 8 items in with you. You cannot bring money. Only two team members may enter, you cannot be rescued, and you cannot recruit anybody here.

Jobs taken here usually have a 3* or 4* difficulty. The dungeon is 15 floors long, with the 15th floor containing one Deluxe Box and nothing more. The dungeon has a lot of enemies from Midnight Forest. Pokemon you need to watch out for are Ledian, who knows such distance moves as Mach Punch and Silver Wind; and Abomasnow, who will make it hail on most of the floors you go through. This dungeon wasn't particularly hard (I went in with no items), but still challenging. Most of the items are Oran Berries or Apples.

~Southeastern Islands
Unlocked after obtaining the Master *** Rank. I have not been here yet so I have no information on the enemies.

~Star Cave
Unlocked after receiving a Challenge Letter in Spinda's Cafe. The dungeon is 16 floors long, and contains Pokemon with levels in the mid-teens. Missions here are of difficulty level C or B. You cannot be rescued here. This is the same dungeon in Bidoof's Wish, but the two parts are combined into one dungeon. Jirachi is recruited here. View section 5 for the Wonder Mail required to unlock it.

~Treacherous Waters
Unlocked after obtaining the Master * * Rank. I have not been here yet so I have no information on the enemies.



Quote:
9. The Arceus Event

I currently have no info on the Arceus event in EoS. Arceus is not actually in the game, but he is alluded to. There is also a special event with him in it. I have not unlocked it, but when I do I will tell about it.

Thank you.

~~~

Added two new differences between PMD2 and EoS (which I meant to add to the last update). They're placed right below the item-trading difference, which has also been slightly expanded.

Added the lookalike item "Mix Elixir".
Added information regarding Master *** Rank.
I have a feeling my next rank-up will be my last (110K points!). I tried going at the Giant Volcano today three times, but failed miserably, seeing as Lucario is weak to pretty much every move there. (I only bring 3 Reviver Seeds now as I need to recruit the space-time duo, plus other legends.)

Added info regarding the Oblivion Forest dungeon.
Added a new addition to section #1: the Random Trap. It triggers a random trap on the floor in terms of effect, but it affects your whole party. The first time this triggered I got a PP-Zero Trap for one move for each party member! Watch out.

Added information regarding lookalike item "Gaggle Specs".
Added the Labyrinth Cave mission.

Apparently, you send Sky Gifts to NPCs within the game. I've sent one to every possible NPC (your partner plus every guild member), and some respond immediately, but some (Diglett, Chimecho, and Croagunk) take a while.

I'll find out what this may bring eventually.

I had a feeling there was something strange going on with my rank point counting.
I managed to get a sneak peak at an actual EoS player's guide, and just as I thought, my numbers for the higher ranks were slightly off. They increase at 4000 a rank instead of 5000, but I didn't know where it deviated.

The correct numbers for the ranks are now in there.
Oh, and I also snuck a peak at where the Arceus statue is: let me just say, it's maddening. (But I haven't done it yet, so it isn't in my post.)
