|Drifblim Stop||In front of the hot spring.|
At first, Cranidos, the gatekeeper, won't allow you to go inside the Cavern Zone until he hears that it's very important, and the leader of this zone, Blaziken, would like to see "Lightning Strike" anyway, whoever that is.
Like previous zones, the game gives an "explanation" of what this zone is like. As you can see, it's very dark in the caverns, so you might have trouble navigating here, unless you use the map. After the view is done, you'll run into a Mr. Mime who is very upset, since the mine cart, the cart used to take Pokémon into the Lava Zone, is not working. Apparently, the rail is broken and is not to be found. He wants you to look for it--you'll need to, anyway, if you want to get to Blaziken--and he says Zubat can also be a help to the search. Since Zubat gossip so much, and many secrets go around them, he's sure that you'll find it in no time if you talk to the Zubat!
Go forward on the tracks. Apparently, a Mawile will stop you, saying that they may not have fields or the sunshine, but this is their home. Follow what Mr. Mime said and go towards the Zubat, who tell you something about a Pokémon called Aron and how he looks at the rail and drools.
Look for Aron, which is very difficult as he blends in with the cavern walls. Once you ask Aron, he won't tell you anything until you give him some Iron Ore, his favorite food. Iron Ore can be found in destroyed boxes. Once you give him the Iron Ore, he'll tell you that "that cutie, Mawile" was biting the rail off.
Now look for Mawile, who has to explain why she did this. She refuses to admit why she did it, although if you beat her in a Skill Game, she would tell you where she hid it.
Her Skill Game is Chase. Don't get her from behind, as the jaw is going to send you flying backwards--instead, try getting her from the side (though, since the jaw is flying wildly around, it's still possible to get hit by it).
After defeating her, she says that she asked Dugtrio to hide it. Dugtrio is past one of the caves, so head over there.
Dugtrio says that, naturally, he'd hide it in the best place to hide it--underground. He said it ended up somewhere near the Berry Storage, so go past the other cave in order to get to the storage.
The Guardian of the Berry Storage
You'll see a Speech Bubble over a Marowak's head, so talk to him. You try to explain to him that you need to go and look for something in the Berry Storage, but Marowak refuses to let you in--the reason why he's guarding it is to make sure Snorlax doesn't steal any berries, and if the boxes open, he thinks Snorlax will smell it, although you can distinctly hear Snorlax snoring.
However, you're persistent, and say that someone had hid something in one of the boxes. Marowak, doubtful, says that you won't be allowed to go inside unless you fight for it--literally!
After defeating him, he'll understand that a Pokémon went underground, and you should have told him earlier. As such, you are now allowed to go and explore the Berry Storage.
While smashing boxes, you may find a Big Berry, which is essential for later. However, keep on smashing boxes until you find a Diglett, who'll tell you something about where the rail went. Apparently, he hid it in the safest place he could find--under the sleeping Snorlax! Oops, he shouldn't have told you that!
Snorlax in the Hot Spring
Naturally, Snorlax is sleeping, and no matter how hard you try, the most you'll be able to do is jump when you press 2 on him, so use your Thunderbolt on him. Snorlax, although awake, says he will move once he gets a Big Berry. Get the Big Berry you found from the Berry Storage--if you haven't found the Berry yet, continually smash boxes until you do. Pick up the Big Berry and hand it over to Snorlax, who keeps his promise and moves over.
At once, a shiny thing plops out from under, however it isn't the only thing--a fountain sprouts up, causing you to get carried away...
Meowth and some other Pokémon blab on how the Hot Spring has been revived. Because of the Hot Spring, many new Pokémon had come here, giving you a bigger chance of getting more friends.
The shiny thing from earlier turns out to be the rail from the Mine Cart. Pick it up and walk over to Mr. Mime, who is extremely happy that you got the rail back. However, he explains that Gible have taken the Mine Cart and have been playing with it for the time being since the rail was gone, so you'll have to go and look for Gible, although it isn't too hard--simply turn left from the entrance track.
All the Gible are extremely disappointed that they have to give the Mine Cart back so soon. They continually argue until Gible finds a way to decide who gets the mine cart--a battle!
Gible is disappointed that he lost since he can't have the Mine Cart anymore, but gives it back to you (reluctantly) all the same. Upon getting the Mine Cart back, Mr. Mime is even happier and becomes your friend. ...And what about Mawile, who you recently defeated in a Skill Game? Well, she said she's going to become your friend if you continually remember the Cavern Zone...
Bastiodon's Block Barrage
Although you don't have to do the only Attraction in this zone now, it is strongly recommended that you do, as there is even a Speech Bubble over Bastiodon's head. Bastiodon is very happy to have a customer, and once you mention something about the Sky Prism, he says he has one of those pieces, but will only give it to you once you complete his Attraction.
This Attraction isn't too hard, but it isn't too easy either, as it really depends on the Pokémon you're using. Move around using the Control Pad, depending on where the ball is going. You don't have to press 2, though it is recommended to use it so you can get faster and better hits and go through Dugtrio, Diglett, and Bastiodon himself.
