The following is a list of Dungeons, how many floors they have, and how to unlock them.
One day you wake up and you're a Pokemon! The Pokemon you become is determined by a set of questions at the beginning of the game. You then form a rescue team where you will be required to travel into randomized dungeons in order to rescue fellow Pokemon. As you go through the game, many new dungeons will be unlocked and you will eventually be able to recruit nearly all Pokemon on your adventures.
The Pokemon you can become are: Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, Psyduck, Cubone, Machop, Skitty, Eevee and Meowth.
Only female players can become Eevee, Skitty or Chikorita, and only male players can become Machop, Meowth or Cyndaquil, the rest of the Pokemon can be gotten by either gender.
Once you've determined what Pokemon you're playing as, you'll get to choose a Pokemon for your partner. The Pokemon you can choose are any of the Kanto, Johto or Hoenn starter Pokemon or Pikachu.
Version Exclusive Pokemon
Exclusive to MD Red are Plusle, Roselia, Porygon, Feebas and Mantine
Exclusive to MD Blue are Minun, Aipom, Porygon2, Magikarp and Lapras
You can, however, unlock the missing Pokemon on your Red/Blue game by using a Wondermail code that involves that Pokemon. For example, if you find a Wondermail code that involves Roselia and input it into your MD Blue game, Roselia will start appearing in the wild.

If you faint in a dungeon you can request a Friend Rescue. It will ask if you wish to get help. If you select 'yes', you can either directly link to another game, or use Passwords. If you use Passwords you'll be given an SOS code. You can give this code to anyone from anywhere in the world. This person can go to the Pelipper Post Office and enter your SOS code and then go into the dungeon where you fainted. When they reach the spot where you fainted, they will be given an AOK code. They give this AOK code back to you, you enter it into your game, and you can continue through the dungeon without losing any items or having to start over.
Wonder Mail codes contain missions that you can go on. Wonder Mail codes can be found on every mission request before you accept it. To enter a Wonder Mail code, start up your game and at the menu where you normally press "Continue", select "Wonder Mail".

To recruit Pokemon the following conditions must be met:

- You can only have a maximum of four rescue team Pokemon in the dungeon at a time, including the leader.
Each wild Pokemon has a certain recruit rate which determines how likely they are to join your team if you defeat them. Your leader Pokemon's level effects this rate. The higher your level, the more likely you will recruit the Pokemon.
