Maniac Tunnel (Japanese: マニアトンネル Maniac Tunnel) is a tunnel that leads between Route 214 and the Solaceon Ruins. Before the digging is complete, it is known as Ruin Maniac Cave (Japanese: いせきマニアのあな Ruin Maniac Hole).

The Ruin Maniac, when the player first encounters him, will propose a race: he will dig straight through the mountain as the player captures the different Unown. This race, of course, ends in a tie; after the player has captured the 26 Unown that are in the form of letters, the tunnel itself will extend straight through to the previously-inaccessible upper chamber of the ruins, where only the ? and ! forms of Unown are available.

As the player progressively catches the various forms of Unown, the cave will lengthen, and the availabilities of the Pokémon in the cave will alter.

  • The concept of Ruin Maniac Cave/Maniac Tunnel is similar to that of Three Isle Path's concept: a person is trying to dig through a cave, and the player must finish certain conditions for the person to dig further.
  • This is the only Sinnoh location where wild Hippopotas can be found.
