After defeat, Nidoking apologizes to Nidoqueen for failing, but then they realize that the player is friendly after Nidoqueen points out how blind they were, and Nidoking and Nidoqueen ask the player to rescue some miners while Nidoking explains about the monster that Nidoking and Nidoqueen mistook the player for. After a while, Nidoqueen praises the player before a pathway is revealed. Nidoqueen wishes the player good luck before walking off with Nidoking.

Regirock

The player approaches some ancient ruin, but shortly afterwards, Regirock appears and attacks the player, believing them to be an intruder. After defeat, the player and Regirock return to the same places before the battle began, and then Regirock stops to search for a pattern in the player's memory, and it finds a match. It turns out that the three intruders (later revealed to be a Swellow, Electrode, and Lampent) were "terminated". Afterwards, Regirock returns to its base.

The second Rest Point is between floors 28 and 29, or after facing the Nidoking and Nidoqueen. It gives the player HM Rock Climb and has a storage. The objective of this is to get across the map using the newly obtained Rock Climb and going through various warps disguised as quicksand.

Secret Rooms

Secret rooms were previously invisible upon stepping on them, so not much is known about them. One did appear on F16. There are a few different types of Secret Rooms. Each listed below:

One looks like a Swastika which has 1 Big Apple and 2 Deluxe Boxes. In these Deluxe Boxes for THIS Secret Room contains:

Dungeon Objective

This dungeon offers one HM Rock Climb in between, right after the mini-boss, for use later on in the dungeon. This is one of the only dungeons that has TM Earthquake. Furthermore, Tanren Mines is home to two dungeon-exclusive recruitable Pokémon: Hippopotas and Trapinch.

The player goes up against Nidoking and Nidoqueen near the middle and Regirock in the end.

Regirock has a chance of dropping its Heart Slate. If the player combines Regirock's Heart Slate with the Mystery Part, Regirock can be summoned at any time in a dungeon.

Trivia

  • QuarryNavigationTM

    The Quarry Navigation by qualiva

    This dungeon was one of the first to featured on the Official PMU Tumblr page.
  • Regirock speaks in Morse Code. What it is saying is:
    • Intruder/Detected
    • Exterminate
    • No/Mercy
    • One/Moment/Release
    • Good/Bye
  • The Pokémon, Nidoking and Nidoqueen, are searching for the miners that are lost inside.
    • Sadly, Regirock "terminated" the miners, unbeknownst to them.
  • The Quarry is similar to 'Lost Woods' from the Legend of Zelda series.
  • When this dungeon was released the location of the correct warp changed every few days.
  • The dungeon shares its initials, TM, with Tanren Mansion, as well as the Technical Machine items. However, as the three can be confused, its usually frowned upon to refer to either of the dungeons as TM.
