Tips and Strategies

Best Items to Bring

Oran Berry ImageOran Berry Reviver Seed ImageReviver Seed Apple ImageApple

You don't need to bring anything special for Southern Cavern aside from the usual recovery items like Oran Berries and Reviver Seeds. That said, you might want to bring a lot of food like Apples due to how long this dungeon is at 50 floors.

Best Pokemon to Use

As a dungeon filled with Rock- and Ground-types, Southern Cavern is best explored with a team of strong Water-type Pokemon. However, considering that Voltorb also roams around in this dungeon, we suggest using Water/Ground-type Pokemon like the ones we suggested above so you wouldn't have to worry about Voltorb.

Pokemon to Watch Out For

Watch out for these three Pokemon as they use powerful room-affecting moves like Earthquake, Magnitude, and Earth Power.
