Glittering Cave (Japanese: 輝きの洞窟 Glittering Cave) is a cave in southern Kalos. It is where the player initially encounters Team Flare.

Geography

The first part of the cave is a long, narrow entrance cave with several detours. All these detours lead to dead ends, however. The cave walls are covered in Luminous Moss and crystals, illuminating the cave interior. Occasionally, wild Pokémon may leap out of the shadows and attack. These encounters cannot be avoided with Repels.

At the end of the narrow cave is a larger, open cave, where a couple of rock-filled mine carts can be found. This is also where the Scientists from the Ambrette Fossil Lab come to dig for Fossils. When the player first visits the cave, Team Flare members can be found here, trying to steal Fossils in order to sell them for profit.
