The Nameless Cavern (Japanese: 未知の洞窟 Unknown Cavern) is a location in the Hoenn region, found on the northeast side of Sootopolis City in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. It is only accessible by soaring on LatiosOR/LatiasAS and appears when the player has three Pokémon with maximum friendship on their team.

The Cavern's interior is highly reminiscent of the Cave of Being, which itself is reminiscent of Verity Cavern, Valor Cavern, and Acuity Cavern.

Special encounters

In the back of the Cavern is a "mysterious ring" floating in the air. Depending on the time set on the Nintendo 3DS when the player enters the Cavern area, the player may interact with this ring to battle one of the lake guardians; the Pokémon that appears will not change so long as the player remains in the Cavern. If the Nintendo 3DS system's clock is modified, no Pokémon will appear in the cave for 24 hours. If defeated or run from, each Pokémon respawns after entering the Hall of Fame.
