    Since Chapter Eleven of my story 'The Temporal Travesty' (an AU of Mystery Dungeon Time/Darkness/Sky) is in the workings, and it's at the start of the great expedition, I want to get some advice on how to make the dungeon, Craggy Coast more interesting. Such as what obstacles or hazards the team can overcome. The Secret Bazaar is going to be included, but that's not going to be enough to even the stakes.

    So please, send your suggestions.

    You could try having them take the wrong path at first? A long time ago I wrote a fanfic based on the games and I made Sealeo kind of a bigger deal than it really was. Sealeo appears on later floors in the dungeons and is a little bit stronger than other Pokémon in the dungeon up to that point. Maybe running into a group of them would make things a little more challenging?

    Going into more detail on this idea, you could have the main characters find ruins hidden deep within the dungeon. There are those secret marking that call Lapras, its not too far of a stretch to say that there may be deeper ruins, or an ancient civilization in which Lapras hailed from, or a group of Pokémon that once worshiped Dialga. Just some ideas to add something more to the rather barren dungeon.

    Hm... I wish I could offer more input from my writing experience, but the best I can maybe offer is getting chased by a high number of Pokémon on one occasion, or attempting a shortcut by blasting a hole in the wall. Optionally, and this is probably my best idea out of all three, they could recruit a new Pokémon to their team. Maybe going off that one and what was said by the others, said new recruit runs off on their own?

    I don't know, I just made it to Chapter 6. I just remember that recruiting Pokémon in dungeons and even as mission rewards was something that happens in the games, and I don't see many fics that mess with it.

    Hmm, I kind of feel like you're asking the wrong question here. Rather than "how can I make this interesting?", it would be better to ask "what interesting things can this add to the story?" instead. If you catch yourself thinking "well, this bit is going to be boring unless I add something else", then maybe that's a sign that it's safely skippable?
