Tanren Mansion has two different sealed rooms. These rooms are locked by a door with surrounding walls and are inaccessible using Ghost-types. There are three ways to enter a sealed room.
- Open the locked door using a Mansion Key that is dropped by the Rotom boss in Tanren Mansion.
- Use a One Room Orb
- Warp into a room by using a variation of teleportation (ie: Teleport, Warp Scarf, Special-tile Warping, etc.
- Warning: There is no guarantee that this method will always succeed.
There are two different sealed rooms that appear in different floors.
The first is a yellow tiled room with stairs going down which lead to Tanren Basement. These last from floor 1 to floor 5.
The second is a dark grass filled room with plants which lead to Tanren Courtyard. These last from floor 6 to floor 10.
The objective of this dungeon is to recruit Litwick and defeat Rotom and obtain the Mansion Key. This key is required to enter the Tanren Courtyard and Tanren Basement.
The following tips maybe taken into consideration while planning:
- Bring a Pokémon that is immune to status moves as many Ghost-type Pokémon are capable of inflicting various status moves including immobilization.
- Bring a Ghost-type Pokémon because there are occasions the sealed room spawns over the entrance to the regular stairs thereby blocking any means of entrance without a Ghost-type.
- It is possible to enter a sealed room without Mansion Key using a variation of warping (Teleport, Warp Scarf, Warp Seed), however this is largely luck based.
- It was possible to use the move Teleport or any other variation of warping to enter the sealed rooms without using Mansion Key.
- This dungeon was delayed for 4 months due to various reasons.
- Tanren Mansion shares its initials TM with another dungeon, Tanren Mines, and the items Technical Machines. As the three can be confused, its usually frowned upon to refer to either of the dungeons as TM.
- Tanren Mansion is the first dungeon to be released that specializes in the Ghost-type.
- The original item that was blocked at the end of Tanren Mansion was Mansion Key, later being replaced by a third Deluxe Box.
- Tanren Mansion has no secret room, while the dungeons that it leads to both do.
