A list of IQ Skills in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team

IQ is a statistic that is unique to the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. Its main purpose is to unlock IQ Skills, which are techniques that allow a Pokémon to make strategic decisions in a battle. IQ also affects the power of certain moves and allowing certain Pokémon to evolve. A Pokémon's IQ can be raised from eating Gummis, and the amount of IQ that a Pokémon gains depends on their type and Gummi color.
