Grueling Grove (Japanese: Grueling Grove) is an area located in the northeastern region of the Obsidian Fieldlands of Hisui. It lies to the east of Horseshoe Plains and north of Worn Bridge. It is home to an alpha Vespiquen, which plays a role in Mission 20: "The Researcher of Myths".


The grove is a patch of land adjacent to a river in the northeastern Obsidian Fieldlands. A U-shaped lake sits in the middle of the grove. A small lake resides in the deepest part of the grove; it has a small island in the middle, with a single tree in which an Unown hides.
