Rescue Team Camps

Rescue Team Camps, commonly known as Friend Areas, are the way for you to check on all of your recruited Pokémon. Unlocked early in the game, you will be able to visit up to 57 different camps where your Pokémon will be stored on recruiting. These each have their own biodome and group Pokémon together. The amount of Pokémon you can store increase based on your Rescue Team Rank.

Unlike the original games, you don't walk around the Camps yourself. This is presumably due to being able to add dozens of Pokémon in.

You will need to have the Pokémon's Rescue Team Camp in order to fully recruit a Pokémon. While some are given to you as standard or when you recruit certain Legendary Pokémon, others require purchasing from Wigglytuff, either in Pokémon Square or by using a Wigglytuff Orb inside a dungeon.

Checking Pokémon

There's more to Rescue Team Camps than just looking at your Pokémon and checking out their moves & stats. Here, you can alter your Pokémon in various ways.

The Rescue Team Camps are the only location where you have the ability to make your Pokémon eat a Gummi. Whenever you get a Gummi, it's put into storage and cannot be retrieved. In the menu of the Camp, you can select any Pokémon, including your Starter & Partner, and get them to Eat Gummis, showing all the benefits as you get them.

You can also use various items including Vitamins and Seeds to boost your Pokémon's stats and the stats of their moves. Like the Gummis, these are pulled from your storaqe and your pack as standard.

Finally, you can Favourite certain Pokémon, change their nickname and release them.
