Labyrinth Cave (Japanese: めいきゅうのどうくつ Labyrinth Cave) is a dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. It is one of the exclusive dungeons that a player may access through Wonder Mail or Spinda's Café.

In the mission that unlocks the dungeon, the player must defeat Gabite, the boss on floor B10F, to obtain a Gabite Scale for the mission's client. This mission is based on the anime special episode Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness.

The dungeon has an unusual amount of Reviver Seeds.


An event Wonder Mail password is required to unlock this dungeon in Explorers of Time and Darkness, this was originally revealed in the DVD pocket for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness anime special. In Explorers of Sky, the player can instead randomly receive the mission from Togetic in Spinda's Cafe. In both cases, the player has to complete Chapter 10 and achieve Bronze Rank, first.

There is 1-4 items on the floor and 2-3 starting enemies. There are usually 1-2 Wonder Tiles. There is 1% chance each for rooms on floor 2, 5 and 7 to be filled with water.

In the anime

Labyrinth Cave in the anime

Labyrinth Cave appeared in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness, where the newly-formed Team Poképals ventured to it in order to get a Gabite Scale to cure Shinx's sick sister. At the end of the hazardous cave, they encountered Gabite, who was sick of handing Scales to everyone who came to ask for one, and engaged in a battle with the Exploration Team. Despite Sunflora being immobilized by Gabite's Attract, Piplup and Chimchar managed to defeat Gabite, who, as a reward for a good fight, handed the explorers the Scale they had come looking for.
