The Groudon statue

Kaminko's House (Japanese: カミンコ博士の屋敷 Dr. Kaminko's Mansion) is a location in Orre, exclusive to Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. It is the home of Dr. Kaminko and his eager assistant, Chobin. The exterior of the manor houses a wide yard with a fountain decorated with a statue of Groudon. The manor has two floors, one of which is initially inaccessible.

The player first visits the house close to the start of the game to find their little sister, Jovi, who had wandered off. Chobin, due to his poor eyesight, repeatedly keeps mistaking the player for a burglar when they try to enter the manor and battle them. During one such encounter, Dr. Kaminko himself joins the scene and has Chobin use one of his inventions, the Robo Groudon, to battle the player. Robo Groudon emerges from the fountain, causing the Groudon statue to disappear for the rest of the game. Once Robo Groudon has been defeated, the player gains access to the manor's lower floor, where Kaminko has built many of his inventions, including the Robo Kyogre.

On the upper level of the bottom floor, the player can ride a series of cranes to access different platforms. One of these platforms has an item chest containing diary entries written by Jovi, with new ones getting added every once in a while.
