Game storyline: The same engaging storyline drives both Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness: Waking up on a beach with no recollection of how they got there, players suddenly find themselves being addressed by a Pokemon - proof that they've been turned into Pokemon themselves. After a brief and bewildering conversation, this friendly Pokemon encourages players to join an exploration guild and seek out the reason for this mysterious transformation. But there's more than one Pokemon who's out of place in this world: Someone has traveled back in time and is trying to steal special items called Time Gears, thus halting time and blanketing the world in perpetual darkness. Players must rally their exploration teams and, with the help of the guild, find and prevent their enemy from destroying the world. Set in a land inhabited solely by Pokemon, it's a deeply moving story of exploration, betrayal, adventure and - most of all - friendship.
