Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is the fourth installment (fifth in Japan) of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. While including various features from the previous games as well as the Japan-only WiiWare games, the core feature is the Magnagate Dungeons, where a picture of any circular object could generate a short dungeon to explore.

However, despite the new hardware upgrades, this game is considered to be heavily downgraded from its previous entry due to having a very small amount of Pokémon, and the lack of features the previous games had.

To do:
There has been some unused moves discovered in the game that do nothing, and there are also some unused items.

Document the following:

  • The entire list of unused items, as well as their sprites and models.
  • The entire list of unused moves.
  • There's a lot of unused content documented here.
  • Cover the downloadable demo version on here, if you still have it.

Unused Sounds


This is meant to be a generic sound effect for stepping on a tile or trap, and is identical to the one used in the WiiWare Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Adventure Squad games. Since Gates to Infinity uses sound effects individual to the particular tile or trap in question instead, this one is left unused here.

Blank Sound

Found in sound/stream is this short sound, meant for testing sound effects. However many of these sound files share the same exact sound, in which are listed below. The sound's internal name is later revealed to be SE_SYS_NO_SELECT in Rescue Team DX.

Another unused image, which reads "Temporary Skill dojo • Rare".

Gates vertical bars.png
There are two pictures for each possible partner: bg/im01_01a_pika.img, bg/im01_01a_pika_a.img, bg/im01_01b_tsuta.img, bg/im01_01b_tsuta_a.img, bg/im01_01c_poka.img, bg/im01_01c_poka_a.img, bg/im01_01d_miju.img, bg/im01_01d_miju_a.img, bg/im01_01e_kiba.img, and bg/im01_01e_kiba_a.img. All of them look the same: four vertical bars of various colors. It has been speculated that these pictures might have been intended to appear as the background picture while selecting the partner.

Unused Main Menu Artwork

Two unused Main Menu illustrations can be found in the files. One shows Oshawott, Tepig, Emolga, and Dunsparce in Paradise in Companion Mode. while the other shows a party consisting of Snivy, Axew, Carracosta, and Gothorita opening a chest while inside a dungeon. The events depicted in the latter never happen in the actual game.

Language selection text immediately follows (in the final build of the game the language depends on the system settings and can be changed at any moment):

Regional Differences

In the Japanese version, the player is allowed to choose the partner's gender at the start of the game. This was removed in the American and European versions, where the partner is always male (although most of the English script never refers to him as such).

Like many other aspects of the game, this is handled by a lua script, which can be edited to restore the feature in the European and American versions.
