Dusk Forest (Japanese: くろのもり Black Forest) is a dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. It is unlocked after defeating Spiritomb at the Sealed Ruin. It has eight floors. Since this is a dungeon that exists in the future, it cannot be visited again. Grovyle will accompany the player in the search for his friend, Celebi. In Explorers of Sky, Dusk Forest can be revisited in the Special Episode In the Future of Darkness. It ends with Black Swamp.

  • The geography of the entrance to this dungeon is very similar to the geography of where Wigglytuff's Guild set up camp for their expedition earlier in the game.
    • This is referenced in the hero's dialogue. When the player reaches camp, he or she notes that it feels like he or she has been there before. The protagonist later remembers this feeling at Dusk Forest.
