Barren Valley (Japanese: こかつのたに Barren Valley) is the first mystery dungeon that can only be played in the Special Episode called In the Future of Darkness in the game Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky.

After the player's partner summons the Rainbow Stoneship, Dusknoir opens up a portal back to the future, intending to take all four characters with him; however, Grovyle, mustering his strength, pushes him back into it, so that only the two of them return. Grovyle then says goodbye to the player and the partner in the present, giving the pair all five Time Gears they need, and with his last bit of energy, pushes both Dusknoir and himself into the portal and thus into the future; they are deposited at the entrance to this dungeon. After some bickering and arguing between the two, Grovyle leaves Dusknoir behind to explore the dungeon alone; however, Dusknoir follows him inside.

There are ten floors total - five in Barren Valley and five in Deep Barren Valley, with a waypoint between the two (after the fifth floor but before the sixth). At the end of the dungeon is the Barren Valley Clearing, where Dusknoir catches up to Grovyle before the duo are ambushed by four of Dusknoir's servants, Sableye. It is after this battle that Grovyle and Dusknoir call for a truce and journey together.

Gameplay

As this is a Special Episode dungeon, the player cannot recruit Pokémon inside and cannot be rescued if knocked out.

    • 3-8 rooms on floor 5 of Deep Barren Valley
    • 3-11 rooms on floor 4 of Barren Valley
    • 3-12 rooms on floor 5 of Barren Valley and floor 1 of Deep Barren Valley

There's 3-6 items on each floor and 2-5 items buried in the walls. There's 2-3 starting enemies on each floor.

The IQ Booster does not activate in this dungeon. The turn limit is 1000. There is water on floors 3 and 5 of Barren Valley and floor 2 of Barren Valley. The enemies in this dungeon have 26IQ.
