Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness/Chapter 12: The Only Option
Now you have to try to stop Grovyle from taking the Time Gear from the Crystal Crossing. You'll be able to head straight there, you don't have to talk to anybody, just go. But you have to pass through Crystal Cave first.
- Crystal Cave
- Difficulty: 5.5
- Boss: None
- Floors: 11
- Notes: Can go to Crystal Crossing afterwards.
This isn't too hard a dungeon, the most challenging Pokémon here is Golem, which isn't too hard himself. Just get through the 11 floors, and you'll hit the intersection.
After a scene and a premonition, you'll gain control. Now, change the color of each crystal to Blue, and then the next dungeon will open, Crystal Crossing!
- Crystal Crossing
- Difficulty: 7
- Boss: Grovyle (Azelf after Credits)
- Floors: 13 + Crystal Lake
This dungeon isn't way hard either, the most you'll have trouble with is the boss, which in and of himself isn't too hard. Just get through the 13 floors, being careful of the Ice Types, and you'll hit the Crystal Lake.
After a bit of dialogue, you'll fight the boss, Grovyle.
- HP: 500+
- Average Damage: 20+
This boss is a bit hard, but if you know what to do, you'll have no problem. Just attack him like you would a normal boss, and if you're a Fire Type, use Smokescreen and then attack with Ember and stuff.If you are a Water Type, try to use a non-water type move, stay behind your teamates while they attack, or just keep throwing stun or sleep seeds at Grovyle. Do the same for Electric Types.
Grovyle will try to take you out, but Dusknoir, again, will intervene, and take Grovyle out. This marks the beginning of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness/Chapter 13: Dusknoir's Secret!
