Brine Cave (Japanese: いそのどうくつ Beach Cave) is a dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. It is unlocked after the player talks to Torkoal when he visits the guild, the player's partner shows him the Relic Fragment's pattern, and Wigglytuff and Chatot reveal the location of the pattern. On the first visit, Chatot will accompany the player. It has 15 floors total, with a rest stop between the ninth floor and the first floor of Lower Brine Cave. At that point, Chatot will chase after Team Skull, leaving the player and partner behind. The boss Pokémon are two Omastar and a Kabutops, who terrorized Wigglytuff and Chatot in the past. Earlier in the game Wigglytuff is seen talking to Lapras about letting the player travel to the Hidden Land.

Gameplay

The jobs here are ranked E and ★2 by default, depending on the floor. Lower Brine Cave is ranked ★2 for purpose of Treasure Boxes.

Floors 1 through 7 of Brine Cave are medium-sized with 3-9 rooms on odd floors and 3-8 rooms on even floors, while later floors are large-sized, with 4-14 rooms on floors 8 and 9 of Brine Cave, 4-8 rooms on floor 1 of Lower Brine Cave and 4-10 rooms on later floors of Lower Brine Cave. There is 1-4 items on floors 1 through of Brine Cave, and 2-5 items on later floors. There's 2-3 starting enemies on floors 1 through 6 of Brine Cave, and 2-4 on later floors. There is a 10% chance for each room on floors 2 and 6 of Brine Cave and floors 1 and 5 of Lower Brine Cave to be filled with water.

The IQ Booster activates on every even floor (counting Lower Brine Cave as continuation of Brine Cave). The player cannot be rescued if knocked out in Lower Brine Cave. The enemies in this dungeon have 26IQ, granting them Status Checker IQ skill. There is light darkness and water in the dungeon. Gastrodon and Walrein in the dungeon can create rain and hail with Rain Dance and Hail, respectively.

Brine Cave made a brief appearance in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky - Beyond Time & Darkness, where Team Poképals and Grovyle were shown finding the pattern at the end of the dungeon, which reacted with Chimchar's Relic Fragment and summoned Lapras, ready to take them to the Hidden Land.
