Solar Cave (Japanese: たいようの どうくつ Solar Cave) is a dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team that contains 20 floors. It is accessible after the completion of the main story, right after the player talks to Whiscash about Stormy Sea.

Three HMs can be found in this dungeon: Dive on 10F, Waterfall on 15F and Surf on 20F. Keys can be found on the ground, which are required for obtaining Dive and Waterfall. A Pokémon that can travel over water is also required to reach Dive and Surf. Moon Stones and Sun Stones may also be found on the ground, and Link Cables will replace any HMs already obtained by the player. All Pokémon in this dungeon are at least part Psychic-type.
