*Dwebble can only be encountered by smashing cracked rocks.
**These pokemon will randomly drop on you in the cave's second area.
***You can get this by restoring Old Amber, which is a fossil that you can get by breaking down rocks.

As you enter the cave, keep on heading straight and ignore the first path to the right as it leads to a dead end. At the second fork, head left for a Hard Stone

You will encounter dark areas as you go further in to the cave. These will have wild Pokémon in it.

Go back to the center path until you reach the third fork. Head to the left to obtain a TM65 Shadow Claw. Head back and continue until you reach the inner cave.

You will encounter a Team Flare Grunt. When he asks a question, choose “No” to start a battle. If you are not ready, just select “Yes”.
Team Flare Grunt(Prize Money: P720)
  • LV18 Houndour
  • LV18 Zubat

To the left of the grunt is a rock that you can break with Rock Smash. You may find items and other wild Pokémon when smashing cracked rocks.

Continue on to the east for another battle.

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

Follow the path until you see two grunts in the way. Your rival will help you with this battle.

Team Flare Grunts (Prize Money: 720)
  • LV20 Croagunk(Fighting/Poison)
  • LV20 Scraggy(Dark/Fighting)

After the battle, continue onward until you find an Escape Rope then go up to speak with the researcher. He will ask you what fossil you would want. Jaw Fossil is for Tyrunt(Rock/Dragon) while Sail Fossil is for Amaura(Rock/Ice).

Exit the cave and head back to Ambrette Town. Enter the Fossil Research Lab and talk to the man behind the counter so that he can restore your fossil if you want. Head to the aquarium and take the exit down stairs to route 8.
