Wayward Cave (Japanese: 迷いの洞窟Bewildering Cave) is a two-story cave located in western Sinnoh. It lies on Route 206, beneath the Cycling Road. Cut is required to access the cave, and both Flash and Rock Smash are required to navigate it. Visiting the cave, however, is completely optional.
There is a hidden entrance to Wayward Cave directly under the Cycling Road, west of the main entrance. This portion of the cave is notably the only habitat of wild Gible in Sinnoh. In Diamond and Pearl only, Strength is required to enter this area.
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.
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.
When the player first reaches the northeastern corner of the main cavern, they will come across a lost little girl named Mira. Alone and afraid, she asks the player to take her back to cave's entrance. She is one of the Stat Trainers, specializing in the Special Attack stat. While she 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 will completely heal the player's party. She leaves the player once they have reached the entrance.
