Cave tile is a type of tile in the Pokémon core series that is the habitat for many species of wild Pokémon. Upon entering a cave, the player is immediately at risk of encountering a wild Pokémon. It shares many common qualities with tall grass.

Like the name states, cave tiles are found in caves and some dungeons of the Pokémon world, though the insides of some buildings have them due to being internally classified as caves. It is always possible to run into a Pokémon while in a cave, whether it is lit or not.

A dust cloud in Chargestone Cave

Dust clouds were introduced in Generation V, a phenomenon likely caused by air currents passing through the cave. It occasionally appears in caves in the Unova region, and may reveal held items, Evolution stones, or wild Drilbur and Excadrill.
