Tiny Grotto, also called TG, was recognized as the first dungeon of the game before the revamp and introduction of Pebble Cave, and was widely considered to be the easiest dungeon for new players to get experienced with how the game functions.

There are 10 floors in this dungeon, whereby there is a safe midpoint known as The Santuary. To proceed beyond the midpoint of Tiny Grotto, the player must have completed Cliffside Cave. The boss of the dungeon is a Roselia accompanied by two Budew.

The Pokémon in Tiny Grotto are mainly in the level range of 1-20.

Dungeon Parts


  • Inside Tiny Woods
  • Tiny Grotto's Midpoint

The scenery in this dungeon starts with grassy ground and flowers in the walls. After the midpoint, there are patches of grass and flowers planted everywhere, with the floor more purple and the wall more overgrown. The midpoint also has a warp point that takes you back to The Crossroads.
