Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team and Red Rescue Team/Starter Pokémon
When you start your game for the first time you will take a personality quiz. How you answer the questions determines which Pokémon you will be. This Pokémon could be any of the following:
|Name||Type||Personalities||Can be your partner|
Note: Some Pokémon are restricted to a specific gender. If the personality comes up as N/A then they are not available for that gender. Your gender is asked at the end of the Personality Quiz.
 Partner Pokémon
Partner Pokémon are the Pokémon that accompany you throughout your entire Story Mode adventure. The only restrictions are that you cannot pick a starter Pokémon with the same type as yours; that is, if you got a Charmander as a lead starter, you cannot pick a Charmander (obviously), a Cyndaquil, or a Torchic.
