The Cave of Origin (Japanese: 目覚めのほこら Shrine of Awakening) is a cave near the north end of Sootopolis City. It is guarded by Wallace of Sootopolis Gym and is said to be the cave where life begins. Its opposite landmark is Mt. Pyre, said to be the place where life ends.

Here, the player will discover GroudonROR or KyogreSAS in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire after an encounter at the Seafloor Cavern and a face-off against Team MagmaROR or Team AquaSAS.

Residents of Sootopolis are not permitted to enter the Cave of Origin.

In Pokémon Emerald, the Cave of Origin is where Wallace can be found debating where Rayquaza is located, until the player gives him a hint that it is at the Sky Pillar. However the player cannot enter the cave after this incident.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the player can reenter the cave after capturing or defeating Groudon/Kyogre. In Pokémon Emerald, the entrance is blocked for the rest of the game after talking to Wallace.
  • In Ruby and Sapphire, the cave is dark but can be illuminated by Flash. In other games, the cave is normally lit.
  • In the official Prima Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen game guide, certain Pokémon are said to be found in the Cave of Origin. These include Pineco, Miltank, and Shuckle. The guide likely meant to say Altering Cave, which can be found in FireRed and LeafGreen, but these Pokémon can only be found there with an event distribution that was never distributed.
  • Although the Cave of Origin was reduced in size for Pokémon Emerald, data for the removed floors still exists in the game's code.
  • In the Generation III games, no background music plays on the bottom floor of this cave. In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, this is the only area in the game with this distinction. (In Emerald, Birth Island also has no background music.)
    • If a Pokémon evolves or an Egg hatches here in these games, the music will play on the floor until the player leaves.
