|Pokémon world locations
Abyssal Ruins (Japanese: 海底遺跡 Undersea Ruins) are sunken temple ruins in eastern Unova, accessed through the use of Dive outside of battle. It is east of Undella Town in Undella Bay. Most Plates are located here. There are four floors and no wild Pokémon or Trainers.
Each time the player enters the ruins, he or she is only allowed to take 500 steps until a torrent of water sends the player back to the water's surface. The ruins are divided into four floors, each smaller than the other. Due to the step limit, it is impossible to get all items of the Ruins in one trip; rather, to reach the second floor, the player must reach the pillar in the middle of the ruins in fewer than 190 steps (thus ignoring all items). The Ruins are filled with 32 Relic items which, have a total value of 1,706,000 when sold to the item maniac in Undella Town. To reach the third floor, the player must use Flash. To reach the fourth floor, the player must use Strength.

Some of the pillars that comprise the corridors of the four floors of the abyssal ruins are colored purple and marked with mysterious letters. These letters can be transliterated into letters of the roman alphabet using the correct cipher. When read the correct way (right to left, bottom to top) the sentences from each pillar can be gathered into a coherent message. The cipher changes slightly between floors: when one moves up a floor the symbols move "down" one in the roman alphabet; for example, if two separate symbols corresponded to the letters G and H on one floor, on the floor above they would correspond to F and G, and on the floor above that they would correspond to E and F, respectively. A small percentage of the symbols used do not appear to have a corresponding letter and are denoted by numerical placeholders in the translated message below, though it is possible that they are logograms or numbers. The positions of two of the unknown symbols—denoted by placeholders ③ and ④ below—swap positions between Pokémon Black and White.

On 1F, the inscriptions talk about a brave king who fought hatred and pursued peace. In the middle of the lines, it states about the King turning on corners. These corners correspond with the intersections while entering the ruins. Every time the player comes to a choice in the path, either going straight or turning, can be considered a corner. Following this pattern, turning on the 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 7th intersects, and continuing straight on the others, will lead the player very close to the center of 1F, regardless of what entrance is taken.
This key of 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 7th corners works on all floors, (except obviously on the last floor) and will lead the player to the Relic Crown.
The inscriptions on the 2nd and 3rd floors tell the player to "shine light" and "act strong" if agreed, respectively. Both at the end of these floors, the player must use Flash and Strength, respectively.
Pokémon Black 2 and White 2
If the player defeats Hugh at Undella Bay after defeating the Champion and receiving the Dive HM from him, Zinzolin will walk up to the player after Hugh takes his leave. The player receives documents from Zinzolin which allows them to be able to read the symbols in the Ruins.
While inspecting the symbol-inscribed blocks in the Ruins, an additional text box containing the direct translation of the symbols will appear after the symbols are shown. The player still has to read the translation backwards, or if they are on the upper levels, further decrypt the translation, before getting a clear message. The complete translations of the messages are exactly the same compared to those found in Black and White. However, the unknown symbols still cannot be translated by cipher, and instead appear as several black circles in the direct translations provided by the game.

The Abyssal Ruins appeared at the end of Piplup, Pansage, and a Meeting of the Times!. Jessie, James, Meowth and Dr. Zager spoke about using Meloetta's song to undo a seal inside the ruins. They then discovered the entrance to the ruins in BW093.
The Abyssal Ruins played a key role in the climax of Team Rocket's "Operation Tempest" in BW096 and BW097. Giovanni brought Meloetta to the ruins to unlock the Reveal Glass, allowing Giovanni to summon Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus and take control of the three in their Therian Formes.
- The Splash Plate and Draco Plate are the only Plates that are not found here, located instead on Route 13BW or in Undella BayB2W2. However, the man who gives these two plates to the player states that he found them in the Abyssal Ruins himself, meaning that all the plates originate from the Abyssal Ruins.
