Turnback Cave

South Exit: Sendoff Spring
Access To: Distortion World

Turnback Cave is located within the Sendoff Spring. This cave is a maze-like cave which requires you to navigate through the cave in less than 30 rooms. If you manage to get to the main room in less time, you will get a special item. This cave is the portal that binds this world to the Distortion World and as such, Giratina can be found here in Diamond & Pearl and in Platinum if it was defeated in the Distortion World. There is no guaranteed way to navigate the cave, with the path being randomised each visit.

Special Moves used in Turnback Cave:
