Mt. Coronet stands in the middle of Sinnoh, extending from the northern wilderness to the southern tip of the region, splitting it into two halves. It is truly best defined as a mountain range, with the highest peak shrouded in legend, perhaps being the highest mountain in the entire [[Pokémon world]]. The [[Spear Pillar]] is situated at the highest point, an ancient shrine to Pokémon now only in ruins, with several of its pillars still standing, all pointing skyward. The legend of the [[creation trio]] is deeply connected to the mountain, as is the plot of [[Team Galactic]]. A stained glass window in the {{DL|Hearthome City|Foreign Building}} in [[Hearthome City]] depicts the mountain with a bright shine, representing the Spear Pillar and possibly depicting the creation of Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina. Its place in Sinnoh has caused variation in the species of {{p|Shellos}} and {{p|Gastrodon}}, which have different coloration depending on the side of Sinnoh they are native to.
Mt. Coronet's southern cavern, which leads between {{rt|207|Sinnoh}} and {{rt|208|Sinnoh}}, features several elevated rock formations as well as several pools of water. It is here where the player will first meet [[Cyrus]] in {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}, and meet him for a second time in {{game|Platinum}}. Though it is a simple cavern, requiring no HMs to pass through, it features the only way to the Spear Pillar, only accessible with {{m|Rock Climb}} and {{m|Surf}}.
The northern cavern is vastly different from the southern one, with no pools of water on the ground floor, and requiring {{m|Rock Smash}} and {{m|Strength}} to navigate between the two halves of {{rt|211|Sinnoh}} and toward {{rt|216|Sinnoh}}. At its northern section, this cavern leads further below the surface, into an area blanketed in a dense fog where a large underground lake is located. This lake is the only place that {{p|Feebas}} is available in Sinnoh, though like in [[Hoenn]], it is found only in specific tiles on any given day (''see {{DL|Mt. Coronet|Finding Feebas}}''). At the north end of this area is a way back up to Mt. Coronet's northernmost cave, leading out toward Route 216, and in Platinum, where the [[Iceberg Ruins]] is located.
The upper caverns are increasingly complex areas, though eventually the player will make his or her way outside of the mountain, into its snowy peaks. This outer area features constant hail, much like Routes 216 and 217, as well as many hardy Pokémon adapted to living in this harsh environment. A cave painting of the [[lake guardians]], similar to the one in Celestic Town, blocks the way to the upper caverns until Team Galactic is defeated in [[Team Galactic HQ]], which is in [[Veilstone City]].
