Gameplay

Generation III

In the original games, three HMs can be found in this dungeon: Dive on 10F, Waterfall on 15F and Surf on 20F. Keys can be found on the ground, which are required for obtaining Dive and Waterfall. A Pokémon that can travel over water is also required to reach Dive and Surf. Moon Stones and Sun Stones may also be found on the ground, and Link Cables will replace any HMs already obtained by the player.

Generation VIII

In the remake, this dungeon contains 1 Friend Bow, 1 Energy Ball TM, 1 Flamethrower TM, 1 Ice Beam TM, and 2 Deluxe Boxes on 20F.
