Do the Pokemon you put in Pokemon Dream World, affect the Dream World in any way?

I put Shuppet in Pokemon Dream World for two days in a row and got a lot of Spooky Manor maps and played a lot of Blow Out Candles on both days.

But today I put Shuckle in and I got 90% Rugged Mountain, with at least 13 Collect Gems.

  • Pokemon-dream-world probably is too narrow to deserve it's own tag. Fifth-gen works just fine to cover it. Mar 6, 2012 at 3:28
  • @RavenDreamer the new pokemon is already incoming, and the Pokemon-Dream-World is a feature complete different from pokemon-fifth-gen, with almost not to do with the game it self. (Beside the fact that today only black and white can enter, and the pokemon found in pokemon-dream-world can go to your game). BUT i agree, atm it's only for pokemon-V-gen

  • Until then though. :) Mar 6, 2012 at 3:52
  • Hmm Why did you @DaveDuplantis remove Pokemon tag, only leaving Pokemon-fifth-gen ??? The pokemon tag is not redundant to pokemon-fifth-gen, is like when you post on stackoverflow javascript and jquery tags at the same question. PS: Pokemon tag info gaming.stackexchange.com/tags/pokemon/info Your argument looks invalid to me, sorry.

  • Gaming.SE hate extra tags for some reason.

Yes, as awesomesocks42 mentions the type of Pokemon you put to sleep influences which area of the Dream World you will visit.

Here is a list to help you determine which type will increase your chances to visit a particular area:

Q: Does the type of Pokemon I tuck-in influence which area I go to? A: Yes, depending on the Pokemon's type you'll visit a certain area more often than others, here is a list of which types each area prefers (list is tentative):

Type - Area

Bug - Pleasant Forest

Dark - Spooky Manor

Dragon - No Preference

Electric - Pleasant Forest

Fire - Rugged Mountain

Fighting - Rugged Mountain

Flying - Windswept Sky

Ghost - Spooky Manor

Grass - Pleasant Forest

Ground - Icy Cave and Rugged Mountain

Ice - Icy Cave

Normal - Dream Park

Rock - Icy Cave and Rugged Mountain

Poison - Pleasant Forest

Psychic - Spooky Manor

Steel - Icy Cave and Rugged Mountain

Water - Sparkling Sea

yes, they do, as of the global link redesign. I am yet to discover exactly which areas are accessed more by which pokemon, but there is now a correlation, for instance, tucking in a flying type will nearly always result in going to the windswept sky, and tucking in an ice type will nearly always result in going to the icy cave.
