At a curtain point in the game, you get dragged into the future and will eventually have to find Celebi. When you find her, look closely. Notice anything strange? She's pink! She's supposed to be green! Unfortunately, I don't think you can get her to join your team.
When you get dragged into the future by "The Great Dusknoir" you will need to get to Celebi at Treeshroud Forest to get back to your time. If you are playing Explorers of Time, when you get to Celebi you will notice she is pink. After you beat the game you can recruit "shiny" Celebi.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time / Darkness Hints
If you are a Charmander with a sleep seed and an X-eye seed and your partner is Piplup this is an easy way to beat Dialga, at the end of the game. Start by throwing your X-eye seed at him and use flamethrower when he's in front of you. Follow him and use fire fang when you are in front of you. When it wears off, use the sleep seed and get Piplup to use brine while you use flamethrower or fire fang and he should go down quick.
You'll want a water Pokemon as you or your partner. If you don't have one, you'll need a bunch of reviver seeds. Don't try using the move razor leaf, it only does 2-3 damage.
Additional Info Submitted By: Team Time
Ok, i know what it says above, but it is sort of wrong. Razor leaf hurts 20-25 damage. First have a lot of sleep seeds or stun seeds. keep max elixirs too. Gather a whole lot of orange berries to heal. If your pokemon knows synthesis thats good. If you keep using smokescreen it will work well. Keep using sleep and stun seeds and attacking you will beat him.
When you battle "Groudon" for the first time and you are a fire type don't worry. I was a Chimchar with a Piplup. Just make sure you bought a wide slash from Keckleon, and make sure you know ember and scratch becauase they work good in a pattern, like wide slash, ember, scratch or ember, wide slash, scratch.
After you get Manaphy he will get sick. Then you will gain access to Miracle Sea to get the Phione Dew to heal Manaphy. After you go to the end of the cave you will have to fight a bunch of Phione's to get the dew. After you get the dew go back to the cave and Phione will automatically join your team.
To beat mew you'll need about 4 X-eye seeds. If you don't have any X-eye seeds, you will need tons of reviver seeds. You would a lot need a psychic pokemon, in that case you would not need reviver seeds. Do not bring any rock pokemon with you. When your attacking mew throw one of you X-eye seeds at it. If Mew dodges the seed, throw another one. After being hit with an X-eye Mew can't see straight. Use psychic and confusion to bring down mew.
To evolve your starter pokemon you first have to beat Darkria (after beating the game) and then go back to Special Rift and beat Palkia. Palkia will want to join your team. Then go to Luminos Spring and you can evolve.
After you beat the game do some missions and you will eventually find a Mr. Mime. Talk to him and he will tell you about Blizzard Island and how a long time ago Scizor got trapped deep in Blizzard Island. Then you gain access to Blizzard Island. Get through the 20 floors and you go to Crevice Cave. Get through its 10 floors and save at the Kangaskan and get through another 14 floors. Then you meet Frosslass. Fight him and then you will save Scizor and he will thank you by giving you the Secret Rank allowing you to do the wonder mail missions.
While on the dungeon floors find blast seeds ,geo pebbles, and sticks. Don't use them! When you get to the pit, Koffing and Zubat will be their. After the battle starts, use your seeds pebbles and sticks. If you don't beat them by the time you run out of those items, battle them normally. You will probably win.
After you beat the game, you can go back to hidden land, clear it and then go back to temporal tower and battle Dialga again. It's hard to beat primal Dialga but normal Dialga is slower, weaker and has less health so it's easy to beat him with any type. Once you beat him he will admit his defeat and ask to be recruited. He isn't very high level, but he's quick to level up.
Get a Mudkip. around lvl 45 and it will learn a move called Endeavor. This move takes your opponent's hp and makes it the same as yours. It does about 600 damage to Dialga in one shot, 500 to Uxie, Meesprit and Azelf.
First you must enter the wonder mail password on the cheats page. Then you have to get up to floor 50. There you will encounter Rayquaza. I would suggest you use a high level Ice type, or a Dragon type such as Dialga, but you will have to pay attention to fact that dragon types are super effective against each other.
If you want to be sure that you don't spend as long trying to get a Pokemon, do a few certain things. First off, some Pokemon will not join the team unless you have a certain rank. Because of this, you may want to spend a while reaching Master Rank. After that, raise a Pokemon's IQ until it learns the Fast Friend skill, but some Pokemon such as the original starters do not have this skill even at MAX IQ, or 10 stars. Next up, get a Golden Mask or Amber Tear, it does not matter which one you choose. When you reach a floor with a Pokemon you want, equip the Golden Mask or Amber Tear to the leader and defeat the species you want to join your team and keep defeating them until they join. Sometimes it may take a while, but even the toughest foes can join you.
If any of you guys out there have a Mystery Part, go to the Final Maze. On floor 23, you'll find Jiraji. On floor 29, you'll find Suicune. On floor 40, you'll find Moltres. Moltres is kinda easy to recruit, but Suicune and Jiraji are almost impossible.
If you want to recruit Darkrai then go to the last floor of Mystifying Forest with a secret slab or a mystery part. Then you walk around until you run into him. I recommend that you have a golden mask or something that increases recruit rate.
So long as you've chosen a Riolu as either yourself or as your partner its quite simple taking down Primal Dialga. Make sure Riolu knows the move Force Palm, its super effective, and maybe toss a few stun seeds at him so that Primal Dialga can't use his stupid Roar of Time trick every single time he gets the chance.

After you graduate from the Guild go to Marowak's Dojo and you will be able to go to the Final Maze. We recommend you to go to Marine Resort first then you go to the Final Maze because in the Final Maze you get to fight many of the pokemon you have met in previous caves.
