Magma Cavern (Japanese: マグマの ちてい Magma Depths) is a dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, the domain of Groudon. It consists of 23 floors and ends in the Magma Cavern Pit.

Monster houses may appear on floors 8-20. Shops may appear on floors 2-6. There is no chance of finding a buried item. Darkness shrouds all floors.

The visual theme of floors 1 to 7 is normal rock with magma leaking out, for floors 8 to 17 it is hot rock with more magma present, and for floors 18 to 23 it gets red hot, with more magma than any other dungeon in the game (besides Magma Cavern Pit). Beyond floor 23 is an intermediate stage that leads directly to Magma Cavern Pit.

The music in the regular Magma Cavern is unique to this dungeon only, and is present in all floors (with the exception of part of Wish Cave).

In the anime

Magma Cavern in the anime

Magma Cavern briefly appeared in the anime special Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Team Go-Getters Out of the Gate!. Snubbull informed the Whiscash Elder at the Whiscash Pond that Team A.C.T. had left on a mission to save a Plusle and a Minun here.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Ginji's Rescue Team manga

Magma Cavern was the location where Ginji and Mudkip headed in order to meet Ninetales and find out if Ginji was truly the cursed human causing natural disasters. They finally reached the Magma Cavern in Why I Became a Pokémon. The Answer Finally Revealed!!, but were surprised by the arrival of Team A.C.T., who had arrived to take Mudkip away. Refusing to be taken away, Ginji and Mudkip engaged in a battle against the Gold Rank team, but soon Ninetales arrived, halting the fight. Ninetales then revealed that the real cursed human being was actually Gengar, whose appearance in the Pokémon world was resulting in Groudon's awakening, thus causing all the natural disasters that had happened recently.

In Tears and Emotions - It's the Final Chapter!, Groudon was completely awakened. Gengar revealed that he intended to have Groudon destroy the entire Pokémon world, as it was the cause of his current state. Groudon, however, didn't listen to him, and almost crushed him under falling rocks, only to be saved by Mudkip. All of Ginji's friends from the Pokémon Square, as well as the Absol he and Mudkip had met at the Frosty Forest, arrived to their help. Thanks to Gengar, who had finally realized the error of his ways, distracting Groudon with his Double-Edge, everybody got a chance to attack Groudon together, successfully defeating the Continent Pokémon and saving the Pokémon world.
