Star Cave (Japanese: 洞窟 Star Cave) is a dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. Initially accessible in the Special Episode Bidoof's Wish, it can be unlocked as a normal dungeon via Wonder Mail codes or by a challenge request from the Spinda's Café. At the end of the cave is Star Cave Pit, where Jirachi can be found.

The Star Cave is the focus of Explorers of Sky's kiosk demo, where the player can play as a Lv. 20 pair of either Vulpix and Phanpy or Riolu and Eevee, for the first seven floors.
