Mt. Barricade, commonly abbreviated as Mt. Barr or simply Barr, is a dungeon originally from PMU 6 which was later remade and added to PMU 7. This dungeon is the strongest dungeon in Exbel that is not set level and is the closest Exbel dungeon to the Tanren region.

It has 30 floors with two intermissions and two main boss floors. The first intermission is a cliff lookout over PMU with a puzzle increasing in height to reach the entrance back into the dungeon, while the second is a maze filled with dead-ends to find the exit.

The bosses that are in this dungeon are both mob type.

The Pokémon in this dungeon are mainly in the level range of 35-55.

Dungeon Parts


This dungeon has three scenery sets, each with stronger Pokémon and different items. The different scenery sets involve different aspects of a battle.

Low Floors

The low floors of the dungeon include a lot of water with small rooms. Foggy weather is common on these floors. The ground is a dark tan color and the walls of this scenery set are a brown color. This lasts from the beginning to floor 12.


The mid floors of this dungeon are like the previous, however now the water appears less often. The rooms remain small but the walls now replace the water. This lasts from floor 13 to floor 15.

Upper Floors

The upper floors of this dungeon drastically change from the previous floors. Water is uncommon, while the dirt is grey with occasional yellow grass and rocks, the walls are light grey color.


The Pokémon vary in type, but are mostly Bug, Fighting, and Ground-type. The Pokémon range from level 5 to the mid 50s, with some able to cause different status problems. Some Pokémon are capable of immobilizing the player by attacking.

Pokémon in bold are recruitable. For a full list of recruitable Pokémon, go here.

Low Floors

The low floors are mostly first evolution Pokémon. There are many status moves that range form Paralysis to Poison. There are also Pokémon that can immobilize the player. The Pokémon's level range from mid 30s to low 40s. The list of Pokémon are as follows:

  • Diglett
  • Makuhita
  • Nidoran M
  • Nidoran F

Some evolved Pokémon of the previous floors are introduced in these floors, such as Dugtrio and Sudowoodo. Larvitar (Level 3) rarely spawns on floors 14 and 15. The Pokémon here range from mid 30s to the mid 40s.

This part of the dungeon uses counter moves (only counter) to reflect physical moves that the player uses back at them. Immobilization and status moves still appear.

Upper Floors

Final stage evolved Pokémon start appearing on these floors along with the mid-floor Pokémon. Status moves are rare, mostly appearing with Parasect. This part of the dungeon uses power and attacks to beat the player, with many Pokémon capable of using moves to boost attack.

  • Tyranitar (Boss)
  • Gliscor (Boss)
  • Skarmory (Boss)
  • Pupitar (Boss)
  • Larvitar (Boss)

The end boss is a gang assembled by a Tyranitar. It consists of Gliscor, Skarmory, Tyranitar, Pupitar, and Larvitar. The sunny weather which appears to be prevalent at first is quickly replaced by a sandstorm as the final boss spawns.

Dungeon Objective

The objective for this dungeon is, like many others, to go up the floors and beat the dungeon and boss. This dungeon offers the Oval Stone, which is necessary to evolve Happiny. Mount Barricade is also the only the dungeon that has a recruitable Larvitar.


  • When Mt. Barricade was released in PMU 7, the mini bosses had a glitch that caused many phantom enemies to spawn. These sprites couldn't move nor attack.
  • This dungeon was previously released in PMU 6.
  • Previously there was a glitch where the boss did not spawn and players had to be warped into a boss fight where they are spawned for you. It has since been fixed.
