Brine Cave (Japanese: いそのどうくつ Beach Cave) is a dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. It is unlocked after the player talks to Torkoal when he visits the guild, the player's partner shows him the Relic Fragment's pattern, and Wigglytuff and Chatot reveal the location of the pattern. On the first visit, Chatot will accompany the player. It has 15 floors total, with a rest stop between the ninth floor and the first floor of Lower Brine Cave. At that point, Chatot will chase after Team Skull, leaving the player and partner behind. The boss Pokémon are two Omastar and a Kabutops, who terrorized Wigglytuff and Chatot in the past. Earlier in the game Wigglytuff is seen talking to Lapras about letting the player travel to the Hidden Land.

Brine Cave made a brief appearance in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky - Beyond Time & Darkness, where Team Poképals and Grovyle were shown finding the pattern at the end of the dungeon, which reacted with Chimchar's Relic Fragment and summoned Lapras, ready to take them to the Hidden Land.
