The ever-present fear of being defeated in the dungeon by enemy Pokémon and losing half of your money and some of your items in the process, will keep you on your toes. But, if the worst happens and you are defeated,you can often be rescued, either by nearby friends over a DS Wireless Connection, or by faraway friends using a password and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. A successful‘Friend Rescue’ means that you won’t lose any money or items!
