    ===============================================================================
    [2] INTRODUCTION						 [LRG002]
    ===============================================================================
    Allow me to quickly explain something - to "catch" the Pokemon in this game, 
    you have to recruit them into your Rescue Team. To do this, you must defeat
    them in battle (the final hit being your team leader's hit) and then hope that
    they ask to join your rescue team. 
    
    I imagine most of you know what legendary Pokemon are if you've ever played 
    another Pokemon game. In case you haven't, though unlikely, legendary Pokemon
    are one-of-a-kind Pokemon that are supposedly "extremely rare." Though it 
    honestly isn't that hard to find them in any Pokemon game, it's true that there
    is only one of their species in a game. There are thirty-five legendary Pokemon 
    which is about 7% of all of them. However, only 33 of those legendaries can be
    caught in this game, I'm afraid.
    
    As for how they relate to Mystery Dungeon - legendaries tend to be the bosses of
    dungeons, or at least they were in MD1 - for many legends, a completely new
    system has been built. Though about six or so of these legendaries remain as 
    bosses, many can actually be found wandering around on the floors of specific
    dungeons with the aid of a special item.
    
    Legendary Pokemon are, for the most part, more powerful than their counterparts
    in normal Pokemon. However, they also tend to be a lot bigger and because of 
    that you cannot bring as many Pokemon as you'd like to and certainly not four
    extremely powerful legendary Pokemon, though it is possible to bring four 
    legendaries as some are only 1 or 2 starred in their size rating (you can bring
    a maximum size of 6 along). They are also a little harder to recruit in some
    cases, but not all.
    
    ===============================================================================
    [3] USEFUL ADVICE						 [LRG003]
    ===============================================================================
    Recruiting the legendaries is all up to chance, except for a select view - if
    you want to recruit them quickly and efficently, you are going to need some 
    aids. There are a few items in this game that can help you recruit them and 
    to defeat them, as well as some items that can help you get through dungeons.
    
    RECRUITMENT ITEMS
    =====================
    
    FRIEND BOW - Equippable Item
    -----------------------------
    EFFECT: When equipped to the leader Pokémon, the chance to recruit all Pokemon,
    unless unrecruitable, rises by roughly 10%. This is useful but it is the weakest
    recruitment item available to you.
    
    LOCATIONS:  Dark Crater, Marine Resort, Mt. Mistral, Zero Isle East, Zero Isle
    North (Shops on B60F - B72F).
    
    GOLDEN MASK - Equippable Item
    ------------------------------
    EFFECT: The Golden Mask has the same effect as the Friend Bow, but at a higher
    efficency. The Golden Mask, according to a source, "Maximally raises chance of 
    recruiting Pokemon." (Note: Although this item is extremely useful, be warned 
    that is item is NOT easy to get, just because of where it is located. Zero Isle
    North is not an easy dungeon. Though it is the one Zero Isle where you are not
    reduced to Level 1, the Wild Pokemon there are very powerful (from what I have
    heard, about Level 90 or so) and you do not gain any experience from them.
    Although, if you do come to Zero Isle North, rather than trying to get a Friend
    Bow I would just go for the Golden Mask.)
    
    LOCATIONS: Zero Isle North B75F. It is just lying on the ground there. Also,
    in a Wonder Mail - check the Wonder Mail section for it.
    
    AMBER TEAR - Equippable Item
    -----------------------------
    EFFECT: The Amber Tear is actually an item with exactly the same effect as the
    Golden Mask. However, it is arguably actually harder to get. (Though it is 
    located on a lower floor, because it is in Zero Isle West you are reduced to 
    Level 1. If you do attempt to get it, good luck.)
    
    LOCATIONS: Zero Isle West, B40F. Like the Golden Mask, the Amber Tear is just
    lying on the ground. (Thanks, Brody.)
    
    BATTLE HELPING ITEMS
    =====================
    
    REVIVER SEED - Automatic Item
    ------------------------------
    EFFECT: When you have one of these in your bag, any Pokemon in your team that
    happens to faint will automatically be revived with full HP and PP. The only
    drawback is that each Reviver Seed can only be used once. These are extremely
    useful items, in any situation, not just legendaries.
    
    LOCATIONS: They're found in quite a lot of dungeons, honestly. I've found quite
    a few in Labyrinth Cave, myself (you need a Wonder Mail to unlock that dungeon
    btw) and you can also sometimes by them from Kecleon's shop in Treasure Town for
    800 Poke each. In addition, there are three boxes on Surrounded Sea B20F that
    you can pick up and each one contains a Reviver Seed. Also, in Tiny Meadow, on
    4F there are two boxes and the left one MAY hold a Reviver Seed.
    
    You can also get Reviver Seeds by doing sentry duty once you have completed
    Mystifying Forest. If you get a perfect score on the sentry duty, a Reviver
    Seed will always be one of the three items you receive.
    
    X-EYE SEED - Throwable Item
    ----------------------------
    EFFECT: The X-Eye Seed is a useful item as it causes a Pokemon to start halluc-
    inating and move around randomly, completely preventing attack. The effect also
    lasts for quite a few turns so it is a very useful item.
    
    LOCATIONS: Random dungeons. There isn't really a specific location where they
    can be found, as far as I'm aware.
    
    SLEEP SEED - Throwable Item
    ----------------------------
    EFFECT: In the same vein as the X-Eye Seed, the Sleep Seed can cause a Pokemon
    to become incapacitated for a few turns, but for this item in the form of 
    sleep. This item should work on any Pokemon except for those who have the 
    Insomnia or Vital Spirit traits and it gives you a fair few turns to let loose
    attacks as well.
    
    LOCATIONS: Random dungeons, notably Beach Cave, actually.
    
    STUN SEED - Throwable Item
    ---------------------------
    EFFECT: The Stun Seed will petrify one Pokemon. When petrified, a Pokemon can 
    not move until the Petrify effect goes away - which is whenever the Pokemon
    is hit by anything that changes anything to do with the Pokemon, such as stats
    or HP. This means things such as Sandstorm and stat boosters such as Acupressure
    can cause the petrify effect to wear off.
    
    LOCATIONS: Random dungeons and again notably Beach Cave.
    
    PETRIFY ORB - Usable Item
    --------------------------
    EFFECT: The Petrify Orb is an item that is particuarly useful for Monster
    Houses. When a Petrify Orb is used, all Pokemon in the same room as you will 
    immediately become petrified and cannot move again until they are attacked.
    However, be warned that should there be a Sandstorm or Hail, or if a Pokemon
    comes in the room and uses Acupressure/Agility or something, the Petrify Orb's
    effect will wear off. PLEASE NOTE THAT ORBS CANNOT BE USED IN BOSS BATTLES.
    
    LOCATIONS: Random dungeons.
    
    SPURN ORB - Usable Item
    ------------------------
    EFFECT: The Spurn Orb is another good item for Monster Houses. When used, all
    enemy Pokemon in the same room as you will be warped to another place on the 
    map, seperately. This means that you can take them mostly one at the time 
    rather than the nine or ten or so at a time as before. PLEASE NOTE THAT ORBS
    CANNOT BE USED IN BOSS BATTLES.
    
    LOCATIONS: Random dungeons.

    ===============================================================================
    [5] REGULAR LEGENDS						 [LRG005]
    ===============================================================================
    All of the legendaries in this section can be obtained without needing a
    Mystery Part or Secret Slab or a Wonder Mail password to get their dungeon.
    Please note that every legendary here must still have a certain condition
    fulfilled to get them, however.
    
    Also, all Pokemon that have a 100% chance of recruitment will recruit no matter
    how the battle ends - as in, even if a partner defeats them, they will still
    request to join the team.
    
    KEY FOR DIFFICULTY:
    - Guaranteed is a guaranteed 100% chance.
    - Very Easy means that they will come with you most of the time.
    - Easy means that they can be recruited fairly easily.
    - Hard means that they can be recruited with a little difficulty.
    - Very Hard means that they are very difficult to recruit.
    - N/A means the Pokemon recruits with some other event rather than a battle.
    
    ==================================
    #483 DIALGA                 [5.01]

    POKEDEX NUMBER: #483
    LOCATION: Temporal Tower Summit
    TYPE: Steel / Dragon
    LEVEL: 48
    ABILITY: Pressure
    RECRUITMENT DIFFICULTY: Guaranteed
    
    CONDITIONS FOR RECRUITMENT:
    - You must come back to the summit after the credits have rolled.

    Dialga is the third legendary you will actually battle, after the Groudon at
    Fogbound Lake and Mesprit. When you first battle Dialga atop Temporal Tower
    Summit, he will be Primal Dialga - a Dialga with a different colour scheme
    and a crazy personality. Otherwise, he's pretty much the same. 
    
    A lot of people have trouble with Dialga because of Roar of Time. Roar of Time
    is a move similar to Discharge, in that when Dialga uses it ALL of your Pokemon
    will take damage and the power isn't split either. Though it won't usually OHKO
    you unless it gets a critical hit, it can cause some serious damage and since
    it can hit both of your Pokemon, you may not have a chance to recover the health
    of all Pokemon so I highly recommend you bring some Reviver Seeds when battling
    against this beast.
    
    You may also want to use utilties such as X-Eye Seeds and Sleep Seeds to stop
    Dialga even using Roar of Time. In addition, if you can find a Dig TM, teaching
    the move to one of your Pokemon can help a lot against Dialga. 
    
    After you beat Primal Dialga, Dialga will change back to his normal blue colour.
    Soon after, the credits will roll. After the credits, you can go to the beach
    below Treasure Town and talk to Lapras. Lapras will take you and your partner
    (ONLY you and your partner, however) to the Hidden Land, so you'll have to go
    through the Hidden Land and the interior of it again. Once you beat it, you
    will be asked if you want to continue to Temporal Tower - say yes. Get through
    it, get to the top, and battle Dialga.
    
    This time, Dialga... will be absolutely the same. The only difference is that 
    you have probably risen a few levels since the last fight. Use the same tactics
    and you should be able to get past the 800 or so HP that Dialga has (both times
    you battle it.) After defeating it again, you will get an option asking you if
    you want to let Dialga join your team. Obviously, pick yes, and you will have
    recruited Dialga!

    Uxie is one of the fourth generation's legendary trio protecting a Time Gear.
    The first time you see Uxie, you'll have just beaten a fake Groudon. Uxie will
    not actually fight you the very first time you see it, instead letting you gaze
    upon the beautiful sight of the Fogbound Lake. The Groudon before can be a bit
    difficult at Level 30, but it isn't too difficult to prevail against.
    
    If you come back up to the summit after the credits roll, Uxie will, for some
    odd reason, not recognize you and challenge you to a fight. Uxie is honestly
    not that tough - just four or five powerful attacks should be sufficent to 
    defeat it. Just beating it will cause it to ask to join your rescue team - 
    say yes and you've recruited Uxie!

    The very first time you see Mesprit, she will challenge you to a battle but 
    at this time in the game, Mesprit is only Level 18. Mesprit isn't that hard
    to beat at this point so you should prevail with ease. 
    
    Later on in the game after you've seen the credits, come back to the lake and
    Mesprit will challenge you again, this time at a new and improved Level 42. 
    But she's still not very difficult - strong attacks will do. Like Uxie, Mesprit

    The first time you see Azelf, he'll have already been defeated and instead 
    you'll have to face Grovyle who is at a whopping Level 46. Of course, if you
    have Fire or Flying attacks defeating Grovyle shouldn't be that hard.
    
    Like the other two in the trio, come back after the credits and Azelf will
    challenge you to a battle at Level 42. Same process, same recruitment question.
    You get the idea.

    Regice is located in Aegis Cave, the spawn of hell. If you don't know, within
    Aegis Cave there are Unown and you have to get Unown Stones, each one having
    the letter of the Unown it drops from, to spell out the words on the stone
    slab in the hubs of Aegis Cave. When you first come in, it will show you the
    word "ICE" in Unown writing. Then within the Ice Maze, you must get one "I" 
    Unown stone, one "C" Unown stone and one "E" Unown stone. After getting these
    three and getting back to the hub (which is achieved by simply completing the
    maze) you have to talk to the stone and "submit your proof". It will then 
    disappear and you can go down to fight Regice.
    
    Unfortunately, this cruel thing that they like to call a puzzle must be done
    again EVERY SINGLE TIME you defeat Regigigas again. This means that since you
    must defeat Regigigas to unlock Concealed Cave, you must recollect the stones 
    to form the word ICE at least twice. By at least, I mean that you may have to
    do it more times. It all depends whether you get Regice or not. Personally,
    I had to try twice to recruit it, not including the battle on the first 
    runthrough of Aegis Cave.
    
    Make sure you defeat Regice with your leader and after you are granted the
    guardian's permission Regice may reappear and ask to join your team. If Regice
    doesn't, bad luck - you'll just have to collect the stones and try to recruit
    it again. For this reason, I highly recommend you bring a Golden Mask or Amber
    Tear along when trying to recruit it.

    Regigigas is slightly different in that rather than spell out something like
    "GIGAS" you go into the deep part of Aegis Cave as soon as you defeat Registeel.
    After going through five floors you will encounter Regigigas... along with 
    a quartet of Hitmonlee AND a quartet of Bronzong.
    
    Unfortunately, you have to beat these Hitmonlee and Bronzong to finish the 
    battle. The first time you battle Regigigas and its henchmen, Team Charm will
    be with you. However, any subsequent time, you'll be by yourself.
    
    Of course, you can only get Regigigas on a subsequent time. So be sure to bring
    some Reviver Seeds because if you get killed by one of the Hitmonlee, you will
    be very, very annoyed. At least, I was. It wouldn't be so bad IF YOU DIDN'T 
    LOSE ALMOST ALL YOUR ITEMS. Plus if you decide to restart your game to get
    said items back, then you have to collect all of the Unown Stones again. I
    swear that Aegis Cave is the most annoying dungeon in the game, although
    Concealed Ruins is a close second.
    
    To make the battle easier, a move with the ability to hit all opponents in a
    room such as Discharge or Roar of Time is recommended.
    
    Anyway, the second time you battle Regigigas and the henchmen, after you 
    commit mass murder upon them, Regigigas will request to join your team after
    the battle. Thankfully, at least this Pokemon is 100%.

    Sometime after Cresselia appears to you in your dreams, Palkia will come and
    drag you off to Spacial Rift. Palkia is very similar to Dialga in that it also
    has an attack that is strong and can kill off all your Pokemon at once - Spacial
    Rend. Reviver Seeds are a must, as are Sleep and X-Eye Seeds. Palkia is also a
    lot harder to type trump, as Dragon is its only weakness. You'll probably just 
    have to go for neutral moves or failing that, moves that are x0.5 effective as
    opposed to x0.25 like Water and Fire.
    
    Whenever you can visit Spacial Rift again - which I THINK is after you defeat
    Darkrai - get to the bottom, defeat Palkia once more and it will ask to join
    your team, 100% guaranteed.
    
    Note that you must recruit Palkia to evolve your starters, so it is highly 
    recommended you recruit Palkia as soon as you can.

    Cresselia is different in that you do not recruit it until after you have fought
    alongside it. When you first go to the Dark Crater to challenge Darkrai, Cress
    will appear as one of your partners at Level 47 which is probably lower than
    you are at that time. As far as I know you have to keep Cresselia alive as well
    as your two Pokemon so don't let it get too weak. You CAN feed it Oran Berries
    during the expedition to the Dark Crater.
    
    After you defeat Darkrai, the usual celebration will happen and then you'll go
    to sleep. The next morning, go out of your base and you should see Cresselia
    sitting by the edge of the cliff, gazing out at the sea. Talk to her and after
    some conversation, she'll ask to join you. Say yes, obviously.

    Though you will have said goodbye to Manaphy long before you beat Darkrai,
    about three days after you defeat Darkrai and you go out of your base, Chatot
    will come running to you telling you that Manaphy is on the beach. The two of
    you will rush towards the beach and find that Manaphy IS there, just looking 
    out at the sea. Upon seeing the two of you, Manaphy will jump for joy and 
    come to you and your partner, talking in fluent speech (I don't know what
    language speak, really. They just display it as English. Or whatever language
    your game is). 
    
    After you see Manaphy, you will go back to your base and Manaphy will be asked

    and decided on wanting to join your rescue team. Again, say yes and you'll have

    ---------
    Jirachi is probably one of the most annoying Pokemon to recruit in this game.
    The Final Maze is found in Marowak's Dojo after you defeat the game. It is a
    long maze with 48 floors and you aren't allowed to bring in items. Even after
    you get to Jirachi and possibly recruit it, there is no guarantee that you'll
    get out immediately unless you happen to pick up an Escape Orb. Luckily, you
    can also kill yourself and you won't lose the items you picked up within the
    maze - just your money.
    
    Either way, when you enter the maze you must survive until you reach B23F. 
    B23F is different to the rest of the maze in that it has a grass-like scenery.
    If you've unlocked Marine Resort, Jirachi will be wandering around somewhere on
    the floor. Search for it and hopefully you'll be able to find it. It isn't
    terribly hard to OHKO, but make absolutely sure the team leader is the one to
    defeat Jirachi otherwise you will have no chance of recruiting it. Patience is
    needed to recruit Jirachi - it could take up to 10 tries to recruit it, if not
    more. As you cannot bring a recruitment helping item into the Final Maze, your
    level is the only thing that you can use to influence the recruitment rate.
    Good luck.
    
    In addition, if you want to know how Jirachi is recruited exactly, it just
    asks to join your rescue team like any other Wild Pokemon.

    Suicune is the same as Jirachi except a little bit lower. It wanders around
    B29F like Jirachi as long as you've unlocked the Marine Resort and B29F is also
    decorated in accordance with Suicune, with the same palette as Northwind Field
    in Mystery Dungeon RRT and BRT. Thankfully, Suicune is a fair bit easier to
    recruit than Jirachi, so even though its six floors lower it might actually
    cause you less frustration.
    
    Again, Suicune isn't too tough, but you have to hope for the best when trying
    to recruit it. It took me about four or five tries to recruit it, personally.

    Moltres is further down again, all the way on B40F. B40F is decorated with a
    fire theme, with the same palette as MD1's Magma Cavern. The worst part about
    Moltres is that the floor tends to take on a maze-like structure which makes
    it ridiculously hard to actually find on the floor since Moltres will be moving
    all the time as well. The very first time I came to B40F I couldn't actually
    recruit it BECAUSE I COULD NOT FIND THE DAMN THING. Though the second time I
    found it and recruited it. It's pretty lucky that they made Moltres fairly 
    easy to recruit compared to the other two.
    
    As with the other two, good luck.

    A lot of legendaries in MD2 require the use of a Secret Slab or a Mystery Part,
    both of which can only be gotten as rewards for doing a rescue mission. If you
    are in need of either, take a look at the Wonder Mail section. Note that for
    these legendaries you need the Secret Slab OR the Mystery Part - you do not 
    need both. Also, as long as the conditions are filled and the item you have
    chosen is just IN YOUR TREASURE BAG, then the legendary will be on the floor
    like a normal Wild Pokemon. If you want to make sure, check the Recruitable
    Pokemon in the options. You do NOT use the Mystery Part or Secret Slab. Using 
    it will just cause it to break and disappear - nothing else will happen.
    
    The majority of these legendaries require you to have unlocked the Marine Resort
    before they will appear. The Marine Resort is unlocked about three days after
    you recruit Manaphy. 
    
    Just to clarify, all legendaries in this section will just appear as normal
    Wild Pokemon - the floor will not change into a special boss floor or anything
    like that. Basically, they appear like Mew did in Mystery Dungeon R/B, except
    with a 100% chance on a certain floor rather than the 0.95% chance or so Mew
    had of appearing on the many floors of Buried Relic.

    Deoxys is located quite late in Shimmer Hill (there's 18 floors in total) and

    An interesting tidbit is that having a Mystery Part or Secret Slab in your bag
    also causes Deoxys to appear in Temporal Tower. However, they are only mirages
    of Deoxys - they are not the real thing by any means. You can find them in

    Mewtwo can also be found in two dungeons and it is unique in the fact that you

    --------
    Unlike Mewtwo, Celebi can only be found in Explorers of Time and only in one
    dungeon. However, Celebi is a LOT easier to recruit than its Darkness counter-
    part. A bit lower levelled maybe, but still. Celebi only has about 140 HP, so
    a strong attack should be sufficent to knock it out and hopefully, recruit it.
    
    ** Celebi was available in Darkness at one point over WFC, but the Wonder Mail
    has unfortunately been taken down since. It is once again impossible to get it
    in Darkness unless you have some sort of cheating/hacking device like an AR.

    COMMENTS **SOME STORY SPOILERS**
    ---------------------------------
    Of course, you end up battling Darkrai in the Dark Crater at some point. You
    win as per usual and Darkrai tries to escape to a different time.
    
    However, while he was in the time portal he created, Palkia shattered the way
    which Darkrai tried to go and like your own character, Darkrai ended up losing
    his memory. Considering that it was because of Darkrai that your own character
    lost his/her memory in the first place, it's quite ironic.
    
    Anyway, as "nobody knows where Darkrai went", Darkrai can actually be found
    in a whopping five locations. No matter the game, it can be found in all five.
    Just as long as you've got the Marine Resort unlocked.
    
    I would personally recommend Miracle Sea B3F - it took me quite a few tries
    to recruit Darkrai myself, but because B3F is so easy to get to it didn't
    actually take me too long to do. You may want to be careful as Darkrai can
    go through walls, despite not being a Ghost-type, so it can catch you off-guard.
    Or accidents can happen. For example, the very first time I tried to recruit
    Darkrai, it came through the wall. I had to walk forward to get it out of the
    wall, but then my Raichu decided to kill it. No chance of recruiting that time.
    
    But that's enough ranting. Basically, just go to any of the five locations,
    have the item in your bag, and you should be able to find Darkrai on the floor
    somewhere. But don't expect to recruit it first try.

    [7] WONDER MAIL LEGENDS						 [LRG007]
    ===============================================================================
    Wonder Mail legendaries are the "guardians of the seven treasures." The seven
    dungeons they lie in can ONLY be unlocked via Wonder Mail codes - they won't
    appear on the Mission Board randomly or anything like that. There is also
    an eighth dungeon with a Gabite called Labyrinth Cave, but that has nothing to
    do with the legendaries.
    
    The seven dungeons each hold an item that helps the recruitment rate of certain
    types of Pokemon and they are all varying lengths. The seven dungeons where the
    treasures are held are: Shimmer Desert, Giant Volcano, Sky Stairway, Bottomless
    Sea, Mystery Jungle, Mt. Avalanche and World Abyss. The amount of floors
    varies from 10 to a whopping 50. None of these dungeons have interiors though.
    
    The Wonder Mail passwords for these can be found in the Wonder Mail section.
    
    Please note that I am not completely sure about the recruitment rate for these
    Pokemon but based on personal experience I think that they all classify as
    Very Easy. However, I highly recommend you bring a Golden Mask with you to
    recruit them as going through 50 floors again is very trying on your patience.
    
    In addition, the treasures you find have the same effect as the Golden Mask
    or Amber Tear but only for one specific type.
    
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ******************************************************************************
    There are no conditions for these Pokemon except for one - you cannot open the
    letters you get from the Wonder Mails to find out about the dungeon until you
    have at least rescued Scizor from Froslass in Crevice Cave.
    ******************************************************************************
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    
    After you defeat each of these Pokemon, there will be some light effects and
    a small treasure box will appear with the item of that dungeon.  After your
    team leader collects this item, there is a chance of the legendary Pokemon you
    defeated reappearing in the room and asking to join you. If they don't appear
    straight after you collect the item and you get returned to Treasure Town,
    you will simply have to go back to where they are and try to recruit them 
    again.
    
    It should be noted that you can also now download these missions from Mystery
    Dungeon's Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. If it is not there, it may only be on
    American versions of the games. (since I have a US one, myself) I don't know
    though - confirmation would be nice.

    COMMENTS
    --------
    Articuno isn't too hard to get to, located after you go through a total of 19
    floors of Mt. Avalanche. A Fire Pokemon is the obvious choice to go through
    Mt. Avalanche and also defeat Articuno. Every time you defeat Articuno, you
    will receive the Icy Flute, an item that increases the recruitment rate of
    Ice types.

    COMMENTS
    --------
    Mystery Jungle is a grass-type filled dungeon with 29 floors as well as the
    interior, so once again a Fire-type is recommended. Mew itself isn't very hard
    to beat at all. For beating Mew you will get the Grass Cornet, an item which
    increases the recruitment rate of Grass Pokemon.

    RECRUITMENT DIFFICULTY: Very Easy
    
    COMMENTS
    --------
    After a total of 49 floors you will find Kyogre, a legendary water Pokemon who
    according to myth, shaped the sea and ocean. As a Water-type Pokemon & dungeon,
    defeating Kyogre will net you the Aqua-Monica, an item which increases the
    chance of recruiting Water Pokemon. You better hope Kyogre joins you though, as
    going through 49 floors again is quite a pain.

    COMMENTS
    --------
    Groudon is certainly the easiest Wonder Mail legendary to get to as Shimmer
    Desert only has a total of 9 floors. Groudon itself isn't terribly strong but
    of course it is stronger than the Groudon you faced back at Fogbound Lake all
    that time ago. Just keep at it. Defeating Groudon will reward you with an 
    Earth Cymbal, an item that can increase the chance of recruiting Ground Pokemon.

    COMMENTS
    --------
    Rayquaza is the other legendary found after a 49 floor dungeon. Ice attacks will
    work wonders but they aren't needed by any means. Defeating Rayquaza will earn
    you a Sky Melodica, which increases the chance of recruiting Flying Pokemon.

    RECRUITMENT DIFFICULTY: Very Easy
    
    COMMENTS
    --------
    Heatran is fairly easy to get as Giant Volcano is only 19 floors, not including
    the summit. Fire Pokemon are found by the dozen so you may want to bring a
    Water type along with you. Be careful not to use Fire moves on Heatran as it
    will do nothing except allow it to kill you a lot easier. Defeating Heatran
    will reward you with the Fiery Drum, an item which can help you recruit Fire
    Pokemon.

    COMMENTS
    --------
    Giratina is in a fairly medium-sized dungeon, with a total of 29 floors to go
    through before you reach Giratina. It appears to be the third in a Dialga and
    Palkia trio and has the types and level to match. Target Giratina with Ghost,
    Dragon or Ice moves if possible. Defeating Giratina will earn you an item called
    the Rock Horn, which increases the recruitment rate for Rock Pokemon.

    [10] FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS                			[LRG010]
    ===============================================================================
    Questions that I've been asked in e-mails will be placed here.
    
    Q: In order to get Manaphy and Marine Resort, you have to fight Darkrai? Where 
    do you find it?
    ******************************************************************************
    A: Right at the end of the post-credits storyline you fight Darkrai at the
    Dark Crater, after going through roughly 30 floors. You have to fight Darkrai
    as well as five others at once.
    
    Q: How do you unlock Marine Resort?
    ******************************************************************************
    A: After you have completed the second story by defeating Darkrai and his
    minions in the Dark Crater, you will just be doing missions normally. Sleep
    for about three or four nights, making sure you do at least one mission and
    Manaphy should appear one morning. After a fairly long cutscene it will ask
    to join your team. Then, do the same thing again (sleep with one mission) for
    about three days and Manaphy should come to talk to you one morning, telling
    you that it found the Marine Resort. You can then go to it.
    
    Q: How do I evolve my starters?
    ******************************************************************************
    A: You must unlock Marine Resort and also recruit Palkia. You do not need to
    recruit Dialga, however.
    
    Q: Is there any easier way to recruit Darkrai?
    ******************************************************************************
    A: Unfortunately, no. A friend recruitment item and level is all you have.
    
    Q: Is there a wondermail that makes Mewtwo/Celebi appear in Explorers of ____?
    ******************************************************************************
    A: At one point in time (roughly around June) there was a Wonder Mail on the 
    WFC servers for Mystery Dungeon 2 which allowed you to recruit Mewtwo or Celebi.
    However, these Wonder Mails have since been taken down and it doesn't appear 
    that they will be back up. There is no Wonder Mail code for them, either; the
    only way to get them now is via something such as an Action Replay.
    
    Q: If you KO a legendary pokemon and fail to recruit it, does it continue to 
    reappear in its appropriate location, or does it disappear forever?
    ******************************************************************************
    A: Legendaries will keep appearing in the same place until you recruit them.
    As long as you're capable of traveling to that particular place again, you can
    have as many chances as you like at recruiting them. 
    
    Q: Do Shaymin and Arceus exist in Mystery Dungeon 2?
    ******************************************************************************
    A: Unfortunately, no. Mystery Dungeon has all Pokemon from Bulbasaur to Darkrai
    but not those two.
    
    Q: I can't find any Blue Gummis! Where are they?
    ******************************************************************************
    A: Though the game says they're found in Craggy Coast, they never seem to be.
    I recommend taking a look at ZombieInfection's Wonder Mail FAQ on GameFAQs as
    there are a few Wonder Mails for Blue Gummis in there.
    
    Q: It says I'm not ready for a dungeon. How can I get in?
    ******************************************************************************
    A: Most likely, you need to rescue Scizor from Crevice Cave. You may also just
    plain need to get a little further in the game.

    Finally, the last section of this FAQ. I don't have too many people to thank
    this time around but alas, I'll include the ones that I do have some thanks
    towards.
    
    SEREBII.NET - One of the most comprehensive Pokemon sites on the web, the site's
    ability to get news even from across the sea helped in getting the passwords
    needed for the seven legendaries that need Wonder Mails. The vast amount of
    information the site held also came in particuarly useful.
    
    GAMEFAQS.COM - Thank you for hosting my FAQ and all that. Particuarly, thanks
    to ZombieInfection, the writer of the Wonder Mail FAQ on GameFAQs. Without that
    I probably wouldn't have been able to get the Midnight Forest and Shimmer Hill
    passwords. So, thanks.
    
    S2DARKRAIS2 - Someone who recently appeared on SerebiiForums bringing especially
    useful Wonder Mails with him, including that one with the Golden Mask. He even
    offered to rescue me quite recently actually, although someone else rescued me
    instead. But thanks to him, Golden Masks aren't such a rarity anymore.
    
    DRAGONFOXPAL & JJGILL (?) - Both of these people confirmed which Pokemon
    did not require the Marine Resort to encounter. Thanks.
    
    Also, thank you to many people for testing out the three turn theory that had

    _not_ work. In addition, thank you to the many people who have noticed errors
    in the FAQ and enabled me to correct them.
