Pokémon world locations

Mt. Mortar (Japanese: スリバチやま Mt. Suribachi) is a large cave in Johto with three entrances on Route 42. Part of the large range of mountains north of the Johto region, it is known to be a confusing maze-like area with an interior cave known as the Waterfall Cave. It is an optional cave to enter, but contains many valuable items and Pokémon. It is the training place of Kiyo, the Karate King from Saffron City. He will reward the player for defeating him.

Geography

Mt. Mortar has three entrances and is huge inside, one of the largest of all caves in the games. It has four floors, and its high Pokémon-encounter rate makes getting lost very costly. It has Surfable waterways, Waterfalls, Strength puzzles, and multiple levels. It is usually considered to be one of the toughest caves to navigate. The cave also has very limited vision in Gold and Silver unless Flash is used, but is already lit in Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver.

The Karate King

The Karate King, Kiyo, is the leader of the Fighting Dojo in Saffron City. In Gold, Silver, and Crystal, he has gone to Mt. Mortar to train. In order to find him, the player must use the center entrance which offers access to water, then Surf ahead and climb a Waterfall. Then they must make their way to the bottom of the cave, where they will eventually find him waiting to be challenged. Kiyo uses a Hitmonchan and a Hitmonlee, and once they are defeated, he will give the player a Tyrogue as a reward. However, if the player does not have an empty slot in their party, Kiyo will tell them to make room for it, then come back.
