Pokémon world locations

A Mirage Cave (Japanese: マボロシ洞窟 Phantom Cave) is a location in Hoenn located on an island in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. It is only accessible by soaring on LatiasAS or LatiosOR. A Mirage Cave can appear daily, or it may not appear, being replaced with a Mirage Island, Mirage Forest, or Mirage Mountain. More Mirage spots can appear via StreetPass.

If a Mirage Cave is received via StreetPass, it will not have a hidden item.

In the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version, several of the Mirage Caves can also be visited during play. The cave north of Fallarbor Town is the location of the demo's first adventure, the cave west of Route 115 is where the player battles Experts on every fifth mission, and the cave north of Route 124 is where the secret Team Aqua/Team Magma mission takes place.

Mirage Caves

Each Mirage Cave contains one item that can only be obtained once, as well as one of three possible items (Blue Shard, Red Shard, or Deep Sea Tooth) that will be present whenever it appears as the daily Mirage spot; the unique item is listed below. Additionally, some Mirage Caves include breakable rocks, which the player can destroy with Rock Smash to encounter wild Pokémon or obtain fossils.
