Question for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team
Many people ask about evolution, so I figure I should just post the EXACT answer here and now for everyone's convenience:
After defeating Rayquaza and the credits sequence, you will be back at your base. Go into town then up to Whiscash Pond, speak with Granbull and Alakazam. Then attempt to leave on a mission and your partener will stop you. You then get the option of which Pokemon you can make the leader, and even leave your partner behind if you want. Your team must consist of only one team member when you enter the cave in the center of Whiscash Pond. Once you are in the cave you must fulfill certain conditions for each individual pokemon's evolution, such as level up, item, IQ, etcetera. I'll leave the fun part of how exactly up to all you fellow-gamefreaks.
I have a question of my own as well. I have evolved my starter and partner Pokemon into their final stages [Feraligatr and Sceptile] and defeated Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza, I've also managed to recruit Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres as well as reaching the Diamond rank, but it seems I cannot move on in the game OR recruit Groudon OR Kyogre. I don't know where I messed up, but it seems like my game just stopped right there. I also cannot recruit any Pokemon in Tiny Woods, even though I've gotten all of the proper friend areas for the Pokemon in Tiny Woods....Did I somehow manage to screw up my game entirely? If so, how?
