but realy why not have them in

When PMD2 was released, I don't think Shaymin and Arceus were officially released. Hence maybe thats why they didn't insert it into the game.

They were not released to the world hen PMD2 was released. It would be awesome to have the creator of the universe on your team though

yeah i reckon . i do wish they could of waited a bit longer for them tho

Well, Arceus and Shaymin weren't officially released before PMD2 came out. I'm betting that PMD3 might deal with these two or Giratina since the PMD games seem to revolve around their generations' game mascots.


I can see the future
It could also be that they may be released in some sort of special mission on the game, similar to how they have the special Shaymin mission on Ranger Battonage. I don't know, but since they are part of this generation, that would seem most logical really than them appearing in a PMD3.

Chances of there being a mission are 0% because arceus and Shaymin are not even in the game's internal coding or whatever you call it.


Arceus might be the big boss of PMD3 if it comes out....I find it to be a drag that the two aren't in PMD2 myself....actually...Arcueus I can understand cause it's a God Pokemon...Shaymind, on the other hand...all it does is create flower fields...so...eh...I dunno.

Alright, just so people will stop repeating themselves here are the facts told so far:

1) Arceus and Shaymin are not in the internal coding of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Darkness

2) Arceus and Shaymin may appear in PMD 2

3) Arceus and Shaymin were not officially released upon the release of PMD 2, which is the reason why they are not in the game

Now then, please stop repeating these facts, I must have read at least five of number 3... Anyway, frankly, I don't think that those two would be mascots in any future game, considering they are technically fourth gen pokemon. Finally, PDM Blue Rescue team did not revolve around the mascots of Pokemon Ruby, Saphire, and Emerald because only the Groudon and Rayquaza were in the Main Story Line. Kyogre, on the other hand, was in Post-Story line. To be honest, I view a game to be finished when the credits roll, no matter what the post-story events are. Though I do aknowledge that the post-story was a good story, it is not the main game. Any questions?


I can see the future
Perhaps there is a way that they can update the coding, like how you update computer program. But it would make sense for them to appear in a new game. Unfortunately, unless a 5th gen comes around, there's really no reason to make a new game.
