 Fantendomon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Light is an upcoming game & community project. It is regarded as part of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series although features users from Fantendo, the game has a main Storyline involving Arceus but also has seperate side storylines involving users and their teams (note: don't worry about making the stories just submit your teams, I'll group them together into stories).


The gameplay is identical to previous Mystery Dungeon titles in which the player has a semi-top down perspective on their Pokemon in which they traverse through randomly generated dungeons, attempting to reach the peak or pit of the dungeon to uncover riches, find lost items or fight villains. The player controls their Pokemon although after completing the main story the player will be allowed to change who their team leader is before entering a dungeon.

The player can have up to 4 team members in their party when entering a dungeon and cannot have a size limit, exceeding 10 Stars (A Pokemon like Wailord takes up 4 Stars). The player can take on missions for various dungeons as well as simply traverse out looking for loot.

Main Story

In the Main Story of Fantendomon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Light, a powerful entity known as Arceus has fallen to the planet within an Asteroid, causing unforseeable natural disasters to the land, this has caused Dungeons to open up in the ground and drought, flood, cold snaps & heat waves plague the land. In this time, Arceus was corrupted by an Alien Virus by a Pokemon called Deoxys.

The player, unconcious on a beach wakes up to find they've been turned into a Pokemon (determinant on their spirit colour), they quickly freak out from this and begin to panic, only to be calmed down by a wandering Pokemon (the player's partner) who asks them if the player is all right. The player responds saying they were a human, the wandering Pokemon laughs, thinking that the player is joking. The wandering Pokemon asks the player if they will join the wandering Pokemon and search the nearby Dungeon called Foamy Cave, the player accepts and the two form a rescue team.

After braving Foamy Cave they decide to officially become a Rescue Team by enlisting to the Fantendo Guild, an academy run by the infamous explorer, Milotic. The player and their partner then set out and complete various missions including apprehending an outlaw by the nickname Maniacal Magmar, protecting an injured Tynamo from a horde of Woobats and even uncovering a hidden grove of treasure within the cave of Sunny Pits. The player then recieves a telepathic message from Arceus telling the player that the end of days is coming and only they can stop it.

Arcues instructs them firstly to find three mystical plants, protected by the beings of Time, Space & Reality; Dialga, Palkia & Giratina respectively. After tracking down each of the three beings and defeating them in battle the player obtains these mystical plants which Arceus tells the player, they will need later. Arceus then explains how the player must now set out and activate the 18 seals as that will open the hidden passage.

With this knowledge the player sets out with his partner on a quest to activate the 18 Seals of the land, as they progress through they are stopped multiple times by a rival team, Team Untendo a band of greedy thieves lead by a particularly aggressive Mandibuzz and her underlings; Galvantula & Meowstic. The player deals with this thieves as they attempt to steal several of the seals, believing them to be worth a fortune individually. Eventually the player is able to activate the last seal and is notified to return to the Fantendo Guild as a secret passage has opened up, as they return the player and partner look to the sky to see the end of days that Arceus was talking about, a pair of colossal asteroids, one ignited with fire and the other with jets of ice. The player and partner hurry back to the Fantendo Guild and search deep within the Hidden Passage, eventually reaching the bottom, from here they hear the voice of Arceus, pleading for them to rescue the dying Pokemon.

The player & partner venture into the portal and land in a place known as the Heavenly Forest, travelling through this area the player and partner reach a landmark known as the Order Stone, after defeating an enraged Xerneas & Yveltal, believing that the player and partner are trespassing on sacred grounds, they awaken Zygarde who activates the Order Stone for the player and allows them to ascend to the Arcane Tower. Climbing this giant golden tower, the player and their partner eventually reach the top to find two Pokemon, Arceus, slouched over the Dial of Life, barely holding on and Deoxys. The latter turns to face the player and their partner, explaining that after it controls Arceus it will shape the universe to its needs and will destroy the player in the process, explaining that it was Deoxys who caused the Player to become a Pokemon, through a telekinetic link between Deoxys and the player that allowed Deoxys to get close to Arceus without being detected.

Never the less, the player and their partner engage Deoxys in battle and defeat the Alien, however it is too late as Arceus has lost all control to the Virus within the Pokemon. Enraged and furious, Arceus lifts Deoxys up and hurls the Alien off into space and then approaches the player and their partner, letting out a roar as their battle begins. Through a ferocious battle, the duo are able to subdue Arceus, giving Arceus the Mystical Plants which cause Arceus to glow, and in a dazzling display of light, the player watches as Arceus' physical wounds heal and the Pokemon regains its sanity. Thanking the player for what they have done, Arceus directs the player to the Dial of Life which contains the essence of any person, Pokemon or otherwise that Arceus had changed, returning the player back to a human, the player reflects on their adventure with their partner and ultimately decides, part way through their travel back to Earth with Arceus that they would like to return to their Partner as a Pokemon.

While Arceus is initially hesitant, Arceus permits this decision and returns the player to their partner at the guild and bids them both farewell.
