Location of Volcanic Cave in Sinnoh.
Pokémon world locations

The Volcanic Cave (Japanese: マグマの空洞 Magma Hollow) is a type of hideaway seen in the Grand Underground. It can only be accessed after the player obtains the Explorer Kit in Eterna City from the Underground Man, and features Pokémon that roam the cave freely, instead of being found in tall grass.

Geography

Volcanic Caves are rock and lava filled caverns, with dry, yellow grass. Some rocks are taller than the player, and must be navigated around, as well as the various pools of lava.
