Glittering Cave

Last Updated:
Level Range of wild pokemon: 15-17
Pokemon Type
Lunatone (Rock / Psychic)
Solrock (Rock / Psychic)
Machop (Fighting)
Cubone (Ground)
Kangaskhan (Normal)
Onix (Rock/ Ground)
Mawile (Steel/ Fairy)
Rhyhorn (Rock/ Ground)
Dwebble* (Bug/Rock)
Ferroseed** (Grass/ Steel)

*Dwebble can only be encountered by smashing cracked rocks.
**These pokemon will randomly drop on you in the cave's second area.

The encounters here are represented by dark spots along the path. Continue straight ahead and ignore the path to the right as it leads to a dead end only. You'll encounter the second split in the path after turning in the corner. Take the path to the left and you'll find a Hard Stone in the end of the path. Backtrack to the split and continue forth.

You'll encounter the third split after a short walk. Take the path to the left and you'll find the TM65 Shadow Claw in the end of the path. Return to the main path and continue until you reach the mine-like area of the cave. A sketchy man will confront you and reveal that he's a member of Team Flare. Answer No to his question to engage him in battle.

Team Flare Grunt (Prize Money: 720)
  • LV18 Houndoor
  • LV18 Zubat (poison/flying)

There are rocks lying around where you can use Rock Smash. There are some items, wild pokemon and even fossils that can be found when you break the rocks. You can also get fossils here that can be restored as pokemon. Since breaking rocks gives you a random reward or encounter, it will be best to clear the area first, save your game then start breaking the rocks. For now, it seems you can only get Old Amber fossil which contains an Aerodactyl.

Continue to the right and you'll encounter another Team Flare member.

Team Flare Grunt (Prize Money: 720)
  • LV18 Gulpin (poison)
  • LV18 Electrike

Continue following the path and you'll find a couple more Team Flare grunts along the way. Your good neighbor Calem / Serena will come to the rescue and team up with you.

Team Flare Grunt (Prize Money: 1600)
  • LV20 Scraggy
  • LV20 Croagunk

Follow the path and grab the Escape Rope along the way. Talk to the researcher and your neighbor will join up with you. He'll give one of the two fossils for you. Choose whether you want a Jaw Fossile or Sail Fossil. The Jaw Fossil will give you Tyrunt (Rock/ Dragon) while the Sail Fossil will give you Amaura (Rock/ Ice). You can only choose one per save. After getting the fossil, use the Escape Rope to easily return to the cave's entrance.

Just a heads up to everyone but I just encountered a Woobat in the Glittering Caves, which is a Pokemon that was not listed as a Pokemon that you should be expected to encounter.
