Pokémon world locations

The Rocky Cave (Japanese: 岩石空洞 Rock Hollow) is a type of hideaway seen in the Grand Underground. It can only be accessed after the player obtains the Explorer Kit in Eterna City from the Underground Man, and features Pokémon that roam the cave freely, instead of being found in Tall grass.

Geography

Rocky Caves are arid, sand and rock filled caverns, with some cacti and other flora. Some rocks and plants are taller than the player, and must be navigated around.
