  • Enter with a Pokémon that knows HM Flash (obtainable on Route 2 if you use Cut on the bush).


Make your way across the maze-like tunnel and find the exit. Battle against multiple trainers, wild Pokémon, and a giant Onix! Can you save the Old Man and finish his quest for a shiny Voltorb? Or will you spend your days on the cave training your Pokémon? Upon entering, if you do not have a Pokémon that knows HM Flash, the giant Onix will immediately throw you out. If you lose in any part of this level you will have to start over again.

Shiny Quest

Shiny voltorb

Old man with shinies

After defeating the giant Onix and releasing the Old Man, he will tell you about the Shiny Quest if you return to the entrance. To receive a Shiny Voltorb from him, you must catch 10 Pikachus without closing the window and show him an Electrode and a Pikachu, both level 42 or higher. There are other ways to get shiny voltorbs but you need to play the level and go left at the start.
