Gritty Hollow, also called GH, is a unique dungeon located at the East of Exbel, South-East of Friendship Forest. Players are required to descend 13 floors before ascending back to the surface to complete the dungeon. Several craters also form inaccessible rooms and may contain valuable loot and enemies throughout the dungeon. Linoone is the final boss of Gritty Hollow.

The level of the enemy Pokémon are between level 20 to 30. Several exclusive Pokémon can recruited here in Gritty Hollow.

Scenery

The scenery of Gritty Hollow remains the same throughout each floor progression. When ascending the dungeon from B13F, many Pokémon grow stronger and are higher on the evolutionary scale.

Descending (B1F to B13F)

Widely considered to the the first part Gritty Hollow, this dungeon hosts moderately-sized to large rooms, with pathways often leading players to adjacent rooms. Pathways sometimes leads the players to dead ends. Walls appear to compose of brown rock, and the floor tiles are sandy-brown as well. Many oddly shaped rooms of varying sized form craters, which requires Ghost-type Pokémon, a Mobile Scarf and/or Orb, or any method of warping to access them, as they do not conjoin with the main dungeon's pathway.

The Pokémon found here cannot be recruited. B4F, B8F, and B11F are always having a Sandstorm weather and the weather is clear otherwise. There is Fog-of-War prevalent throughout the entire dungeon which gradually blocks more of the player's view the deeper the the players progress.

Ascending (B13F to B1F)

The second part requires players ascending the dungeon. Stairs which previously led players deeper into the dungeon now leads the players out of the dungeon. Scenery wise, Gritty Hollow appears the same. However, enemy Pokémon are stronger, and two recruitable Pokémon, Spinda and Rhyhorn spawn here rarely. When ascending, the weather is always clear, unlike the weather when players are descending deeper into the dungeon.

Rhyhon, Smeargle, Spinda and Munchlax are the exclusive recruitable Pokémon found in Gritty Hollow.

Tips

  • Defeat Zigzagoon as often as possible. These Pokémon has the ability Pickup, and may drop valuable items obtainable from the dungeon such as Protector or Heart Scale.
  • Bring X-Ray-Specs to see through the darkness. This item is especially useful if players are hunting for eggs or Rhyhon.

Trivia

  • Gritty Hollow was created by Erladino.
  • Gritty Hollow is the first dungeon to feature often inaccessible craters containing items or Pokémon.
  • This is the first dungeon to have players return to the entrance upon reaching the end, as opposed to Jailbreak Tunnel with its mini-boss exits that return players to the entrance of the jail.
