How to Escape a Dungeon Without Losing Anything

You can technically leave a Dungeon at any point, by going into the Main Menu, selecting "Other," and then "Give Up." However, this counts as a loss, as though you'd been beaten by an opponent, losing you all your money, your items, and automatically failing any Missions you'd completed so far in that excursion. Clearly, there has to be a better way.

If you want to escape a Dungeon without it counting as a loss, there are three ways to do it.

  • Make it to the end of the Dungeon.
  • Complete a rescue mission objective.
  • Use an Escape Orb.

The third of these is clearly the best option, as the first one isn't so much escaping as completing, and the second is highly contextual. Escape Orbs are single-use items which, when used, immediately take you out of the Dungeon as though you'd made it to the end, keeping all your money, items and mission completions along with it. However, the Orb is destroyed on use, meaning you'll have to find another one. They're good options to use when you're about to lose in a boss fight, functioning as an emergency escape.

How to Get Escape Orbs

There's no guaranteed source of Escape Orbs, nowhere to specifically farm them. However, they're often found for sale in the Kecleon Shops, both in Pokemon Square and in Dungeons, and sometimes can even be found on the floor while out exploring. Alternatively, make sure to check the Bulletin Board by the Pelipper Post Office every day if you need one: they're often rewards for missions, even easy missions.
