1. Introducing the facilities of Post Town
In Post Town, you’ll find many facilities to help you on our journey.
Among these are Rampardos’s Box Buster and Cofagrigus’s Glorious Gold.
Rampardos’s Box Buster is the place to open Treasure Boxes from dungeons!
If you bring him a Treasure Box that you’ve found in a dungeon, Rampardos will use his favorite headbutting skills to bust it open for you. You may get useful items or even Team Skills from these Treasure Boxes! The more Team Skills you collect, the easier your adventure will become!
You may sometimes find sparkling gold bars in dungeons. At Cofagrigus’s shop, Glorious Gold, you can exchange these gold bars for various items or money. You can even exchange them for rare TMs (Technical Machines) and the keys to open doors in dungeons!
As you adventure in dungeons, you will find your mind syncing with the minds of your party members. When everyone’s in sync, you can lose a team attack!
A team attack is incredibly effective in battle, dealing damage to all enemy Pokémon in the area, restoring HP to your party based on the hero’s type, and more. Once you use your team attack, you will have to wait until you sync with your party members once more before you can use it again. Be sure to use it in the perfect situation!
Now your moves can grow, too!
Among your Pokémon’s moves, some will be able to grow if you use them a lot, causing their ranks to increase and their power, accuracy, and PP to go up. Once a move’s rank has been increased for one Pokémon, any teammate who knows the move will be able to use the powered-up version as well. Keep using your favorite moves to make them incredibly powerful!
Moves that have grown in this way will appear as “Lightning II,” “Lightning III,” “Lightning ★,” and so on. You will also be able to use the abbreviated forms of your move names on the screen.
The Treasure Boxes you find in dungeons might include one of the many kinds of team skills. By acquiring team skills, you may be able to befriend other Pokémon more easily, automatically know how many items can be found on a floor of a dungeon, or do many other useful things!
