Top 10 Problems With Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon

A list of the Top 10 Problems With Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon.

The Top Ten

1 The Dungeons Aren't Well Made

Yeah the games ten to have that problem. The dungeons don't have much difference form each other, except that some are simply just longer than others and are harder to complete due to greater lenght and greater, stronger, enemies. Its still a good game but... yeah... - HeavyDonkeyKong

2 Forgetting to Save

That’s just your problem then. I had no problems with saving the game. - Userguy44

That can pretty much apply to every other Mystery Dungeon game. This is basically something on the player's own fault. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

3 Uses the Same Layout

Same layout? The dungeons are supposed to change random formats with every floor you go to as it has been with all previous Mystery Dungeon games. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

4 Uses a Different Story Than Gates to Infinity

One, the antagonists from both games are similar to each other in the fact that they're sentient non-Pokémon creatures. Two, Gates to Infinity was poorly received by critics. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 It's In a Complete Different World

What would you expect then? - Userguy44

It isn't supposed to be a sequel, bro. Plus, cameos of Pokémon characters from previous installments appear as well. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Different Pokemon

Of course, the Mystery Dungeon games have to keep up with the current generations of Pokémon as the main series is. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

7 Your Attacks Miss a Lot

That just happens sometimes. - Userguy44

It's been happening ever since the dawn of the Mystery Dungeon series, man. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

8 Items Are the Same

It's called basics, pal. You make it sound as if every single item in the game is a Plain Seed when there's old and new items to collect. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

9 Controls Are the Same

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Plus, I feel that the Alliance Attack mechanic is a pretty significant improvement over the Team Attack from Gates to Infinity. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

So what if they are the same? - HeavyDonkeyKong

10 Wild Pokemon Deal More Damage to You

It mostly depends on your level and the difficulty of the dungeon you're exploring. Plus, can't one take a challenge? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

That makes it actually more challenging. I don't see what’s wrong with it. - Userguy44

The Contenders

11 Even the Regular Enemy Pokemon are Stronger Than You

What I even need to say? Just level up your damn team! - Userguy44

Just. Level. Up. Your. Team. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

12 Partner Disappears

This is a poorly researched list

It’s part of the storyline! - Userguy44

13 Starting Back at Floor 1

Try again, for Pete's sake! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

14 Pokemon in Both the Dungeons and Recruits are Overleveled

The game both sends Pokemon your way that both one or two shot your main team. On top of this, the game lends you little to no time to grind or train, and even if you do its extremely tedious, much worse than the last games. Finally, the game gives you very powerful Pokemon stupidly early in the game, while I didn't use them to keep the game challenging it still is notable that there is such an easy tool to steamroll your way through dungeons.

15 Wild Pokemon Do Special Moves On You

Every Pokemon attacks like any other Pokemon would in the game. It's not like they can perform Alliance Attacks too. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

16 The New Mechanics Are Poorly Handled

What I mean by this is the really awesome addition of creating multiple set teams of three. This is a mechanic I have always wanted in these games and when I first saw it I was jumping. However, its ruined by the fact that pokemon are now obtained through missions. Because of this, unless you go out of your way to ignore certain missions, you will always gain the same pokemon at the same times, which really kills the replay value. This also makes the game incredibly easy as you can easily steamroll your way through dungeons with the level 50 Salamence and level 55 Dragonite the game hands you so early.

17 Speed stat

Sure, missing attacks jappens in other Mystery Dungeon games as well, but it doesn't break your run just as this game.

Losing half of your reviver seeds just because the game says "NO, YOU AIN'T GUNNA HIT HALF OF THE TIMES" is not fun.

In the main story it isn't a problem. But in the postgame where the enemeis can actually endure more than 2 attacks and has good speed as well, you're battling against RNG and nothing more
