I haven't played it and neither do I know the story. I don't have any plans to get that game currently either, so I don't mind the spoilers. :)

Darkness was a blast. I loved the story in that game. Far superior to the first two PMD games.

Six words, one track, infinite feels. 
ParodyHam Featured By Owner 9 hours ago
Aaaah, it's a kick in the feels, that game. Also one of my top favorites ever made. You may have just convinced me to buy Sky. :X

I could never get past The final boss. Both me and my partner are sepereffective against him but he'd heel stomp us every time

Seeds and orbs are key to victory. I didn't know how to use them in blue/red and finally learned in Sky and suddenly the game was so much easier. XD
Archer-Wolf Featured By Owner 9 hours ago
Heads up with those items, orbs don't work in boss battles, but seeds can still be used.
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner 1 hour ago  Professional Digital Artist
I think I used seeds in boss battles and orbs are a life saver when you enter monster houses! Phew!

I think I played sky.... I know that in darkness either mew or some other benevolent legendary psychic type sacrifices themselves but beyond that I'm lost
DarkraixCresselia Featured By Owner 12 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
One of my favorite games to play! I got super excited when PMD Sky enabled you to play as Vulpix, because it's one of my favorite Pokemon. My PMDO team, FireTails, was actually inspired by my PMDS team, also FireTails ;)

I haven't completed Explorers of Time, yet. I know generally what the story is about. I've finished Blue, though.
Which one(s) have you played?
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner 13 hours ago  Professional Digital Artist
I have played all three games. :)
Time-013 Featured By Owner 12 hours ago
Which one is your favorite?
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner 12 hours ago  Professional Digital Artist
Explorers of sky definitely! 
AuroraL1GHT Featured By Owner 13 hours ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I played it but never beaten it because I could never get past the kabutops boss for some reason no matter how many revive seeds I had, but I know most of the story ;v; then again it's been a while since I actually played it...
OddandAelita4life Featured By Owner 14 hours ago  Hobbyist Writer
I've played and beaten Darkness, and now taking a break cuz its screwing me over by saying the game card isn't in there. I finally made it to Aegis cave. In Sky though, I kinda am sucking..erhm...or failing. I'm at Temporal Tower, and with absolutely no Reviver Seeds or Oran Berries. I think I left and went to go explore A LOT more. But I'm a bit curious about Infinity. I heard that the story is completely different, but I'm pretty sure it has the whole entire 'Human into Pokemon' thing, Time Gears being stolen, and evil Pokemon pretending to be good while the good Pokemon has the whole Universe against him..or her. For all I know, you still end up fighting Dialga. I think it would be cool if you could, like, I dunno, fight Arceus, and it would take on the form of whatever type you and your partner. I mean like, whatever, thats my opinion. But it would be cool. I mean like, what if you found something secret, and had the chance to have a legendary from the start. I remember a girl telling me that her game..glitched? I guess, but she ended up being a Darkrai while her partner was a Rayquaza. Weird, yet awesome. Hopefully, the 6th gen will be amazing. Like, Red, Blue, Darkness/Sky/Time mixed into one. Infinity can go die though.
Sam-Sanister Featured By Owner 14 hours ago
I've played through the main stories in Red Rescue Team and Explorers of Darkness, and have almost played through the main story in Gates to Infinity. I do like all 3 games, since any one of them does something the other two don't.
SolarisDragon Featured By Owner 14 hours ago
I played the PMD: time version and is very interesting to save the least.
LunaStar52 Featured By Owner 15 hours ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
GOOOOOOOOOOOODD I miss playing those games ;u; I have Time and Sky X3333 

Seriously, if I had to choose a side pokemon game that i love as my favorite, it's PMD Games hands down ^w^ 
Corrupted36 Featured By Owner 15 hours ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'd never played mystery dungeon until explorers of sky came out. I had seen a few commercials for it when red & blue rescue team was a thing, but had never gotten one. I completely forgot of its existence as a whole until I saw a trailer for Sky. It had just been chance that I went to purchase a new DS game for a vacation trip my family was planning, I had done no research, I just went in and picked out a game that looked good (usually). I saw it in the store and remembered how cool the commercial was, I thought to myself, "hey this game looked pretty good in the commercial, what the heck, its pokemon, I like pokemon." Bought it. From the moment I started the game I was hooked. Been playing it off and on ever since and have restarted the game several times to explore with different starter layouts. Best 40 bucks I've ever spent, worth every penny.

Now if only they'd make an open world exploration based pokemon game...
EpicJeff112 Featured By Owner 16 hours ago
One of the best Pokemon games in existence! I prefer Mystery Dungeon more than the main line of games. I can keep coming back to it and have fun, more so than the main series. Anywho, great games, Played through Darnkess, Time, and Sky! Sky I played through several times and the others I think twice. I played the three to find differences between them. Sky was so much fun!
AzzyFox Featured By Owner 16 hours ago
I get the Sassy personality on purpose (Explorers of Sky) just so I can play as Riolu. XD
Grynixeka Featured By Owner 16 hours ago
I have explorers of time sitting here on my shelf but it always frustrates me because I can never get past Groudon D:<
Melindaington Featured By Owner 16 hours ago
I actually replayed Sky recently. I adore this series of game and despite my unrelenting distaste for 3D I really hope a new one comes out soon!
Phantira Featured By Owner 16 hours ago
I have only played a little bit of it, but sucked at it. So I searched for spoilers on it and know the story D:
cinostheechidna Featured By Owner 17 hours ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I played all of them, but I only ever beat Sky. Which, I actually kinda sorta used an action replay on :p but I can at least say the story was really good and I had fun playing it(and I'm legit playing through Darkness now so). I thought Blue Rescue Team was okay, I played that one second and I wasn't really used to it so it was very hard for me(especially Sky Tower or Pillar or whatever it was called, geeshus). 

Gates to Infinity though.

I just want to slam that game into a wall(which, I'm pretty sure I did actually sell it to gamestop to get ORAS). I loved Sky, it was my childhood, and it has my favorite OST of all time, but Infinity just took those songs and murdered them. The story wasn't as good, which, wouldn't be a problem if it's predecessors didn't have better stories. It just wasn't captivating, I didn't feel close to the characters, though I did like that you could become your partner after your character dies, that's a nice touch that the other games didn't do. 
I did however like the gameplay, I thought it was a nice addition to add the extra parts of the dungeon, and level up your moves, but I think what really threw me off was the 3D models. I don't understand why, I can transition between 2D and 3D Mario or Sonic games, heck, I can play Pokemon Platinum and still enjoy X or Alpha Sapphire. 
But I couldn't get into the whole building aspect thing, I wish they had done something more similar to Red/Blue Rescue Team where they had friend areas instead of land you can make things on.

And don't get me started on the rage I feel for the exclusion of the personality quiz.

Hopefully if/when the 6th gen PMD games come out, they'll either be sprites, or wonderful cell-shaded models to match XY and ORAS.

and the story will be actually good

and they'll bring back the quiz
IcarusHector Featured By Owner 16 hours ago  Hobbyist Writer
My greatest griefs with the GtI game was the removal of the plain A button being a typeless attack that dealt damage based on your attack power, and the post story was incredibly simple and short with one hell of a curve at the Worldcore (though I liked the pseudo fourth wall break at the end, I had an honest moment of wtf weirdout). The fact that you weren't the only human called to action was a nice touch and I've always liked the theme of hope in the face of overwhelming power.

definitely weaker than time/darkness/sky and blue/red stories. ESPECIALLY THE POST STORY STORY.

Adn though they say I sho0uld be able to evolve my main two since I beat the main story, I'm still stuck and unevolved forms.

That said, I named my Team "The Faith" which fit so perfectly with the overall themes of the story that it made it feel more organic.
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner 17 hours ago  Professional Digital Artist
I do agree with GtI being the weakest in the series but not that much that I'd throw the game into a wall. XD Yes, the story is the weakest in series, I agree there. But the game itself had certain aspects I really liked over the older games.

No hunger. Thank goodness they removed that. I NEVER liked the hunger aspect in the games.
All pokemon gaining Exp even if you didn't use them. Useful, yes. No one likes grinding.
Evolving when you reach the right level. It was frustrating to always go through a dungeon when ever you wanted to evolve.
The moves leveling up that you mentioned.

Those are things I think they did right and I hope they'll keep when/if they make a new PMD game.
I personally liked the building paradise aspect. Mainly because you could get really useful items easily with it (reviver seed plant, arceus yes). And... I personally liked the graphics. yes, certain run animations look silly (coffagrigous XD) but it didn't bother me. 

As for the personality quiz, I'm gonna be honest, I've NEVER went with what I got as I always had a team in mind what I wanted to use which meant I had to restart the game god knows how many times until I got the starter I wanted. So yeah, missing the quiz part wasn't that big of deal to me but I admit, it was part of the charm and I can see why people were upset that it was left out.

GtI is definitely the weakest in the series but it's not so bad that I wouldn't recommend it. I would personally recommend it to anyone who wants to try PMD games as it is the easiest in the series thus easy to get into.
I hope we'll see a new 6th gen PMD and I still have faith it can be a great game. :)

It's impossible to find now without ordering online, and it's just so frustrating. I'm going to have to admit defeat at some point, but SRSLY.
Corrupted36 Featured By Owner 15 hours ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
get an emulator for your computer, problem solved

Lunaleaf Featured By Owner 8 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, I already have an emulator. The issue is that I would like to purchase a hard copy of the actual game. It's far from the same experience.
Arckahlys Featured By Owner 17 hours ago
The question you have to ask me is how many times I have played those game. But I don't know the answer, too many times.
BlackMew13 Featured By Owner 17 hours ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i played through the main story but never finished the second one sadly ID
Weazel75 Featured By Owner 17 hours ago  Student General Artist
Darkness and Sky are probably the two games I've played the most out of my DS library. So very good. Still, it can be interesting to see how other people experience the game.
choco285 Featured By Owner 17 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
I played the life out os Sky moustly because its was the only game I had at the time, looking forwad to the LP X3 can't wait.
Wanderer619 Featured By Owner 18 hours ago
I don't own the game but I do know what happens.
Flemmliplush Featured By Owner 18 hours ago
I've played it, and I should go back and play it again. ;u;
It's a really good story, I only wish that Gates to Infinity could have been better. ;3;
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner 18 hours ago  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, GtI had potential and certain genuinely good things compared to the older games but story wise and available pokemon wise it suffers.  :/
Flemmliplush Featured By Owner 18 hours ago
Yeah, as well as the fact that you couldn't take on multiple missions for the same dungeon. :C
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner 18 hours ago  Professional Digital Artist
OH GOSH YES! I used to do so much multitasking in Sky so I was very disappointed by that decision! XD
Flemmliplush Featured By Owner 14 hours ago
Yeah. I mean, I liked the whole Pokemon Paradise thing because it's pretty cute, but without the multitasking in the dungeons, it gets difficult to continue.
Part of me really wants to go pick the game up again and see if I can finish it. I don't think I even got halfway through the game...
KrisFirebolt Featured By Owner 18 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
I only played PMD: red dungeon on the GBA
destinedMagikarps Featured By Owner 18 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
