    Introduction

    At the beginning of Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, the player is given a short personality quiz to determine the player and partner species. While it later gives the option to ignore the results and choose any starter Pokémon, this guide can be used to answer the questions in a way the game recommends the Pokémon you want.

    Table of Contents

    Part 1: Personality Traits

    First, the player is presented with 5 questions to assess 5 personality traits. For each trait, there are two possible questions that can be asked, one of which is chosen at random.

    1. Sunny

    Question 1 Question 2

    A nerve-racking first day at school!

    You want to make friends with someone you just met. What do you do?

    • Turn to them and introduce yourself. (+1 Sunny)
    • Wait nervously for them to talk to you.

    A new student transfers into your class.
    What do you do?

    • Offer to show them around the school. (+1 Sunny)
    • Wait to see what kind of person they are.

    2. Calm

    Question 1 Question 2

    Disaster strikes! You've lost your wallet! Now what are you going to do?

    • Calm down and retrace your steps. (+1 Calm)
    • Tear the place apart in a frantic search.

    Two of your friends are fighting, and you wish they'd stop. What do you do first?

    • Ponder what the real issue is between them. (+1 Calm)
    • Jump right into the fray to make them stop.

    3. Flexible

    Question 1 Question 2

    They start selling a new kind of pastry at your favorite bakery...

    • You try the new variety without hesitation! (+1 Flexible)
    • You stick with your regular favorite.

    Everyone at school is talking about this great new book, but it's big and long...

    • Of course you get it! They say it's great! (+1 Flexible)
    • You don't want to read anything that long.

    4. Serious

    Question 1 Question 2

    Halfway to school you realize you forgot something. You'll be late if you turn back...

    • You hurry back to get it anyway. (+1 Serious)
    • You can't be bothered to get it now.

    You've been hiking up a mountain for two hours but still haven't reached the peak...

    • You pump yourself up for one last push! (+1 Serious)
    • You give up on it and head home.

    5. Cooperate

    Question 1 Question 2

    You want to jump rope during recess, but everyone else wants to play tag...

    • You give in and play tag with your friends. (+1 Cooperate)
    • You convince all your friends to jump rope.

    All right! Dinnertime at last!

    You're starving, and you can hardly think about anything else except the chance to eat...

    • You wait until everyone is ready to start. (+1 Cooperate)
    • You start eating as soon as you have your food.

    Part 2: Personality Type

    After answering these questions, the game chooses a base species and personality type for the player. Contrary to what one might think, this base species is not the Pokémon that will be assigned to the player - there's still one more question left to determine that. This base species instead determines which personality description is presented immediately prior to the results being displayed.

    This table shows all the possible outcomes of the above questions. A "1" indicates the first option was chosen, a "0" indicates the second option was chosen, and an "X" indicates a "don't care" condition, where it doesn't matter which option is chosen.

    After having determined a personality type, one additional question is asked. This determines the player's species.

    Part 4: Partner Species

    The penultimate question determines the partner's species. This is always the same question asking about they player's music preference. There are 8 possible answer sets in total, 1-2 for each of the 5 starter types. Again, the game chooses answer sets (set 1 or set 2) at random.

    All right! Vacation time at last! What kind of music fits your mood?

    • Gotta get moving with some EDM! (Riolu)
    • I'm in the mood for dramatic opera. (Totodile)

    Part 5: Cool or Cute?

    The last question is simple:

    What would be the best word to describe your partner?

    • Cool!
    • Cute. ♪

    This determines the partner's gender (cool = male, cute = female). There is little if any difference between the two. In terms of dialog, the English translation does its very best to avoid using gendered pronouns, and the French translation knows it can't avoid them, so it assumes the player to be male and the partner to be female. In terms of aesthetics, a few Pokémon have slightly different overworld models depending on gender: Pikachu and Torchic. Additionally, most Pokémon portraits in the team selection menu will face to the right; however, a female partner's portrait will face to the left.

    After the results of the personality quiz are shown, the player is given the option to override the results, being able to choose any player species and any partner species of a different type from the player.
