Chargestone Cave (Japanese: 電気石の洞穴 Electric Stone Cave) is a cave within the western half of the Unova region. It is connected to Route 6 at its southern exit, and Mistralton City in the north.

Chargestone Cave has a special magnetic field that causes Magneton and Nosepass to evolve into Magnezone and Probopass, respectively, when leveled up here. This magnetism is also evident by the cave's puzzle: the player must push stone fragments blocking some passages so they are attracted by larger magnetic rocks, making it possible to continue.

In Black and White, the cave is initially blocked off by a Galvantula web. After defeating Clay, the player will meet him here, where he will remove the web with his Krokorok and give the player TM78 (Bulldoze). In Black 2 and White 2, part of the cave is inaccessible due to Bianca and a Worker blocking the way due to the bridge ahead being down, and repairs don't finish until the player has participated in the Pokémon World Tournament and defeated the Team Plasma Grunts on the Plasma Frigate just south of PWT. Additionally, Funfest Mission "Find Mysterious Ores!" can be unlocked by talking to a Lady.

After defeating Ghetsis in Black and White, Bronius of the Seven Sages can be found and arrested here. He is guarded by two Team Plasma Grunts that appear after talking to him, and they must be defeated before Bronius can be arrested. He is the only one of the Seven Sages to do this.

Chargestone Cave in the anime

Chargestone Cave debuted in The Lonely Deino! during a flashback. It later appeared as a partial setting for Crisis at Chargestone Cave!, where Professor Juniper was doing research. The Joltik and Galvantula that lived there were consuming all of the electricity in the vicinity, even kidnapping Pikachu and Minccino. It was later revealed that Team Rocket was taking rocks from Chargestone Cave, which serves as an energy source for all the Pokémon that live there, and forcing the Joltik and Galvantula out of the cave.

After some help from Ash and his friends, Team Rocket was chased off, and the cave was once again safe for Joltik and Galvantula to live in. It reappeared in Evolution Exchange Excitement!, where Ash and his friends found a group of Klink and a Klinklang that were angered by a pen that was stuck in one of Klinklang's gears, which was later found out to be Sunglasses Krokorok's doing. It made a very brief appearance in Explorers of the Hero's Ruin!.

Trivia

Name origin

The kanji of its Japanese name, 電気石, refers to tourmaline but the games use the Kun reading (いし ishi) for the representation of in kana as opposed to the On reading (せき seki). This results in the term denkiishi (でんきいし), meaning "electric stone" or "electric rock", and not denkiseki (でんきせき), "tourmaline".
