Dark Ice Mountain (Japanese: くらやみのひょうざん Dark Ice Mountain) is a dungeon found only in In the Future of Darkness, a Special Episode in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. It is a future dungeon, the first dungeon on Frozen Island (known in the past as "Blizzard Island"). Grovyle and Dusknoir encounter a group of Snorunt talking to each other once they are teleported here from the Spacial Cliffs, only to have the Snorunt prank Grovyle with an ice attack and then run away in laughter. Grovyle (seeking payback) and Dusknoir then venture into this dungeon to find them and the Passage of Time.

This dungeon has two sections, Dark Ice Mountain and Dark Ice Mountain Peak. The lower part has ten floors, while the upper part has four, and there is a waypoint between the two areas. At the pinnacle, the player must face four Glalie and a Mamoswine.

Gameplay

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

The dungeon uses two floor layouts

  • Even floors (except for floor 4 of Dark Ice Mountain Peak) are medium-sized with 3-9 rooms, except floor 10 of Dark Ice Mountain, which has 3-8 rooms
  • Odd floors (and floor 4 of Dark Ice Mountain Peak) are large-sized:
    • 3-8 rooms on floor 1 of Dark Ice Mountain
    • 3-9 rooms on floor 9 of Dark Ice Mountain
    • 3-10 rooms on floor 3 of Dark Ice Mountain and floor 1 of Dark Ice Mountain Peak
    • 3-11 rooms on floor 7 of Dark Ice Mountain and floor 4 of Dark Ice Mountain Peak
    • 3-12 rooms on floor 5 of Dark Ice Mountain and floor 3 of Dark Ice Mountain Peak

There's 3-6 items on each floor, except floor 6 of Dark Ice Mountain which has 4-7 items instead. There's also 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, 5 and 7 of Dark Ice Mountain, and floors 1 and 2 of Dark Ice Mountain Peak. There is light darkness in the dungeon. The enemies in this dungeon have 26IQ.
