Pokémon Friends & Fiends is a 2013 game made by Futurastic Games Inc. for the 3DS, with users as main characters. It combines Pokémon Mystery Dungeon and main Pokémon games, hence most moves kept their original types (except for those who changed into new types), power, accurary and effects. It is about users who are transformed into Pokémon by a brainwashed Mew and must investigate who is behind in all of this.
Like in Mystery Dungeon, the Pokémon with two abilities can uses both of these and all Pokémon with Dream World abilty can use it if it is 50 and above. While it's retained the main games' mechanic, moving via dice rolling and various squares and cards are added, making this more boardlike game. Genderless Pokémon can now have gender, even legendaries, thus able to use the moves Attract and Captivate. Like in Pokémon X & Y Versions, the Pokémon are on 3D sprites.
Notice that all Pokémon from all five canoncial regions are in, but only those who are listed (the users) can be only recruited until upon finishing the Main Story. Any types and moves colored red are new types/moves.

More coming soon
- Plasma - Mix of Fire and Electric Type. Plasma is super effective against Bug, Poison, and Psychic-Type Pokémon but resisted by other Plasma and Dragon-Type and useless against Ground-Type. Vulnerable from Water, Rock and Ground-Type (similair of Fire-Type) but resistant of Fire, Electric, Grass and Ice-Type.
- Light - Opposite of Dark-Type. Light is super effective against Dark and Ghost-Type (Look out, Sableye and Spiritomb!) yet resisted by Psychic and Steel-Type. Vulnerable against Psychic and Bug-Type moves, but resistant of Fighting and Ghost-Type moves, and immune of Dark-Type. Multiple Pokémon had either gained this Type (Mareep for instance) or if it is already a two type, replace one of it's type (Lanturn and Azelf for instance) or simply replaced it's former Type by this like it is all-new. (Cresselia for instance).
- Dark Ember - Dark-Type, Variable Power, 100 Accurary and 15 PP. The more the user's level, the higher the power is. The Power an go to the maximum of 100 (5 X User level - 5 to 15 = Power). This can causes burn by 40% and can aim at any targets.
- Shockflare - Plasma-Type, 60 Power, 100 Accurary and 10 PP. It can causes either a paralyzis or a burn and can double damage on Pokémon with Wet Status Aliment.
- Burning Shell - Water-Type, 40 Power (80 if the user is level 30 and higher), 95 accurary and 10 PP. Causes burn by 60% and have a high critical hit-rate (only if the target is not a Water-Type).
- Light Ray - Light-Type, 80 Power, 100 accurary and 15 PP. It can hit on three tiles away and on three tiles wideness. Does have 30% chance of blinding the target.
New Status Aliment
- Wet - Caused mostly by Water-Type moves. It become more vulnerable to Electric-Type moves and loses it Fire-Type STAB (if the victim is a Fire-Type) and boosts. It cannot affect the Water-Type Pokémon.
- Blinded - Mostly caused by Light-Type moves. The victim can't see properly and might goes any where, like Confusion in Mystery Dungeon. However, it also slightly reduces Accurary instand of make self-hit or hitting allies.
- This is one of the few Pokémon game who uses an antagonistic light-using Pokémon.
- This is also the only Pokémon game that users are special Pokémon.
- The game was planned to be for the Nintendo 3DS, but it was moved to Wii U does to the number of Pokémon it was going to be in and among with many new feature, this might overload the 3DS memory.
