Waterfall Cave (Japanese: たきつぼのどうくつ Basin Cave) is a dungeon in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. It has eight floors and is unlocked after beating Drowzee on Mt. Bristle, and performing Sentry Duty at the Wigglytuff Guild. This is the first dungeon to have shops in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky.

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

On the first visit, the hero and the partner are asked by Chatot to explore the Secret Waterfall (Japanese: ひみつのたき Secret Waterfall) as their first official exploration. When they reach the waterfall, the player has a vision of a lone Pokémon leaping through the waterfall into a hidden cave. The partner decides to trust the player, and the two leap into the waterfall to find themselves in a dungeon. Upon reaching the bottom of the dungeon, they stumble into in an alcove filled with gems and a giant gem is at the back. The partner wants to take the gem back to the guild but finds it difficult to remove. It is at this point when the hero experiences another dizzy spell and sees an image of the past. A Pokémon had pushed the gem and had accidentally set off a trap that caused a flood to wash it away. Unfortunately, the hero is too late to warn the partner Pokémon as they push the gem and trigger the flood. However, they are flushed away to the Hot Spring where they first meet Torkoal.
