The Nightmare (Japanese: あくむのなか Inside the Nightmare) is a dungeon that can only be visited once in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. It has 17 floors and is unlocked after clearing Mt. Travail and bringing Drowzee back to the Wigglytuff Guild to examine Azurill. The player meets Cresselia, which is actually Darkrai disguised as such, who attempts to eliminate the player and their partner, blaming them for the distortion in space. The player's belly decreases at an accelerated rate. Also, all Pokémon in this dungeon are unrecruitable, due to the fact that they are all manifestations of Azurill's nightmare, and not actual Pokémon.
