The entrance to Steam Cave

Steam Cave (Japanese: ねっすいのどうくつ Hot Water Cave) is an unlockable dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky, that can be obtained by activating the Groudon Statue with the Drought Stone to clear the fog at Foggy Forest. After 8 floors comes The Upper Steam Cave consisting of seven Floors and then the first boss, a fake Groudon, an illusion created by Uxie's psychic powers is encountered. The fake Groudon is the one who truly guards the area and protects the Time Gear.

After the credits, Uxie will be the boss of the dungeon, who, upon defeat, will ask to join the player's team.
