The third installment in the series was announced in the January issue of the Japanese magazine Coro Coro. While almost no information is known about the game at this time, in the above screenshot you can see Riolu and Eevee walking in Treasure Town.
While in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness 491 out of 493 Pokemon were featured, it’s expected Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 3 will add those two missing Pokemon that appeared in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl: Arceus and Shaymin along with new forms, plus Giratina’s and Rotom’s newly introduced forms.
