Lapis Cave (Japanese: 群青洞窟 Ultramarine Cave) is the eighth dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX. It is a cave filled with blue jewels similar to lapis lazuli.

It consists of 14 floors. In Red and Blue Rescue Team, there is no chance of finding a Monster House, a shop, or a buried item in this dungeon.

In Red and Blue Rescue Team, floors 1-4 and 9-14 will be shrouded in darkness, limiting field of view to 2 tiles in hallways.

This dungeon is visited automatically two days after the Great Canyon is cleared for the first time. Mt. Blaze will be visited immediately afterwards.

If the player is defeated in this dungeon, they will have the option to go to Rock Path before proceeding to try to pass through the dungeon again.
