Pokémon world locations

Wayward Cave (Japanese: いの洞窟 Bewildering Cave) is a multi-floor cave located in western Sinnoh. It lies on Route 206, with its main entrance located beneath the Cycling Road. There is a hidden entrance to Wayward Cave directly under the Cycling Road, west of the main entrance; the portion of the cave accessible from there is notably the only habitat of wild Gible in Sinnoh (other than the Grand Underground in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl).

Cut is required to access the cave. Additionally, Rock Smash is required to navigate the portion accessible from the main entrance, while the Bike is required to navigate the portion accessible from the hidden entrance. Additionally, in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl, Strength is required to access B1F. 1F is dark, but can be lit up with Flash.

Visiting the cave is completely optional in Generation IV and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and it only plays a small role in the plot of Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

In Sinnoh's distant past as Hisui, Wayward Cave is part of the Coronet Highlands and is connected to Wayward Wood.

Geography

1F

Wayward Cave is just as the name suggests; it is very easy to get lost in. Most of the cave's features are the same and are repeated at every twist and turn. The cave is very dark, so Flash is needed to light the path.

B1F

There is a hidden entrance obscured by the Cycling Road that leads to a basement floor, filled with various bike obstacles, such as muddy slopes and jump ramps. Flash is not needed to light the area in the basement floor. This is also the only place where wild Gible are found.

Partner Trainer

When the player first reaches the northeastern corner of the main cavern on 1F, they encounter a small lost girl named Mira. She is one of the Stat Trainers, specializing in the Special Attack stat. Alone and afraid, she asks the player to take her back to the cave's entrance.

While Mira is with the player, they cannot use Dig as a field move or an Escape Rope. Once the player reaches the cave's entrance, she departs.

While Mira is with the player, all wild battles become Double Battles, and all Trainer battles that would otherwise be Double Battles become Multi Battles. After every battle, she completely heals the player's party.
