The Hot Springs is connected to an opening in the back of the Pokémon Center. The people draw as much hot water as they need, yet the spring never runs dry. The magma in the active volcano causes veins of water nearby to well up as hot springs. According to legend, the Lavaridge hotsprings calm tension, relieve muscle ache, solve romantic problems, and attract money. An old couple relaxing at the springs will give away an Egg containing a Wynaut. There is also an Ice Heal hidden in the water.
