Location of Mound Cave in Naljo.

Mound Cave is a cave in Naljo.

It is divided into two discrete sections: the main cave connects Route 73 and Spurge City, while a smaller upper area connects Route 83 and Route 69.

Travelling through the main cave requires that the player brings an Electric-type Pokémon (or move) to activate the cave lights on B2F and B3F. A Fire-type is also required on their first visit, to light the Dynamite and clear the blocked tunnel.

There is a mine cart on B3F, which can take the player to Acqua Mines, Clathrite Tunnel or Firelight Caverns.

Dynamite[]

The stranded miner on 2F requires five sticks of Dynamite to clear the path, which can be found on B2F and B3F (the dark floors). Each item ball has a pink hue to distinguish it from regular item balls, and each is guarded by a Palette Patroller. See the Walkthrough section to more easily see how to reach them.

Trainers[]

All of the trainers in Mound Cave are unique characters rather than the usual generic trainers. Defeating all of them is required to pass through the cave.

Rival[]

The player will meet Bronze immediately after entering the main cave from Route 73.

Pre-battle dialogue: I can't hear you... OK, now I get you. Alright, you want me to go where?
(Looks at player with a frustration emoji, sound effect for overworld poison effect plays) ... I'll call you back. (Hanging up phone sound effect plays) (Turns to player) I told you to stay out of my way. Can't you follow the most basic instructions? ... I guess it's time to see if these new Pokémon can slice your team up real good!"
After defeat: "What was that for, huh?"
Post-battle Dialogue: "These worthless pests are just a waste of my time. Now I am off to find new Pokémon that suit my specific needs. ... What those are? Hah! That's not your concern."

Palette Patrollers[]

Guarding the five sticks of Dynamite are five Palette Patrollers, who must be found and defeated in order to progress. Once all five of them have been defeated, they will vanish.

After defeat: "Darn you! You might have won this time... ...but you can't use your Pokémon as a shield forever! Behind your loyal Pokémon is just a helpless child. But, like humans, Pokémon are totally disposable. When it is upon us, the world will see just how vulnerable you are!"
Post-battle Dialogue: "Look, you earned your dynamite, so go get it and leave me alone. We'll come back to meet you again, when the time is more suitable."

Palette Blue[]

Found on B3F in the center, though reaching them requires falling through a 2x2 hole on B2F.

After defeat: "They can't blame me! It's my first day, after all."
Post-battle Dialogue: "Everybody needs a way to make money, and this is mine. I agree, it is a bit unorthodox."
