Waterfall Pond (Japanese: 滝壺 Basin Pond) is a Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX that contains 19 floors. It is automatically accessible after the completion of the main story, though HM Waterfall is required from Solar Cave to enter the dungeon. This is also the first dungeon where the player will be able to recruit any of the starter Pokémon. Spawned items have a 5% chance to be sticky.

In Rescue Team DX, this dungeon can spawn a mystery house. At the end of the dungeon, the player is rewarded with 2 evolution crystals and 1 Deluxe Box.
