Lava Caverns

(1 of 2) Dragonite Ore locations above ground.

The main method to obtain Dragonite is gathering from mining outcrops in the Lava Caverns. For best results, prioritize the white mining outcrops. You can find 2 such outcrops above ground and 9 underground.

Above Ground

(1 of 2) 1. On the lowest ledge between the area 7 and 9 battlegrounds.

1. On the lowest ledge between the area 7 and 9 battlegrounds. (left), 2. East from the Area 10 battleground, by the wall near Area 12 entrance. (right)

1: On the lowest ledge between the area 7 and 9 battlegrounds. Across the gap from Sub-Camp 2.

2: East from the Area 10 battleground, by the wall near entrance to Area 12. Near Sub-Camp 1.

Underground

(1 of 2) 3a. Head to the Upwelling Wind between areas 7 and 9 if underground. Or the hole in the floor if above ground.

3a. Head to the Upwelling Wind between areas 7 and 9 if underground. Or the hole in the floor if above ground. (left), 3b. Drop down to the southern ledge from the top. (right)

3: Head to the Upwelling Wind between areas 7 and 9 and slightly on the right. Use the wind to fly up, then drop down to the southern ledge halfway up the shaft.

(1 of 2) 4. On a ledge up the shaft east from the Area 9 battleground.

4. On a ledge up the shaft east from the Area 9 battleground. (left), 5. On a ledge on the opposite side of the previous node. (right)

4 and 5: Go to the Upwelling Wind east from the Area 9 waters. When you’re in Area 9, look for a Golden Spiribird by the wall, indicating a ledge you can climb up. Once you’re in the section with the Upwelling Wind, use it to fly up to the surface. Alternatively, fast-travel to Sub-Camp 1 and travel south.

Once you’re outside the shaft, drop down to the first ledge towards the east. Facing the center of the shaft, drop down on your right to a lower, much smaller ledge. Then drop down again in the same direction. You’ll land on a ledge with the first mining outcrop here.

From here, face the center of the shaft again. Look ahead and there should be a wide ledge on the opposite side, lower down. Wiredash across. When you land on this ledge, you’ll be near a second mining outcrop.

(1 of 2) 6. South-east corner of the lower region between areas 13 and 14. This one’s on the ground.

6. South-east corner of the lower region between areas 13 and 14. This one’s on the ground. (left), 7. While this one is up on a nearby ledge. (right)

6 and 7: In the lower region between the area 13 and 14 battlegrounds, towards the south-west corner. There’s one mining outcrop on the lowest level and another nearby on a higher ledge, which you can climb up using your wirebugs.

(1 of 3) 8a. Run up this pillar and then somersault off near the top.

8: Area 14, on a high up ledge where a Relic Record is found. Coming from Area 13, look up and keep your eyes peeled for a big gap in the wall. It’s near a rock pillar that touches the roof. Grab a 3rd wirebug if you want. Run up the side of the pillar then, when you’re at the top, let your hunter automatically roll away.

When you’ve rolled far enough from the pillar, press Monster Hunter Rise Screenshot to hang in mid-air. Then manually shoot a wirebug upwards with Monster Hunter Rise Screenshot and Monster Hunter Rise Screenshot to get onto the ledge.

(1 of 3) 9a. Crawl through this gap between areas 11 and 14, near a small lava flow.

9: The next three mining outcrops are all near eachother in a somewhat secret place. Referring to your mini-map, look for a small gap in the northern wall between areas 11 and 14 that you can crawl through. It’s to the right of a small lava flow. You’ll arrive in a circular room. Face the eastern wall and wiredash up to a small tunnel up the wall.

Go through the tunnel and you’ll emerge on a ledge overlooking a sea of lava. Don’t worry: You can’t fall down here (this isn’t a Mario game). Turn left and the first white mining outcrop is by the wall halfway to the end.

(1 of 2) 10a. Turn around from the entrance and climb up the slightly protruding wall on the right.

10a. Turn around from the entrance and climb up the slightly protruding wall on the right. (left), 10b. Then land on the ledge on the right. (right)

10: From the previous node, walk back towards the entrance but don’t go leave. Facing the entrance, climb up the slightly protruding wall on the right. There’s a mining outcrop above and to the right of the entrance.

(1 of 2) 11a. From the previous node, wiredash west to a lower ledge. Or climb up near the western end of the path.

11a. From the previous node, wiredash west to a lower ledge. Or climb up near the western end of the path. (left), 11b. This is the last white mining outcrop here. (right)

11: Remain on the previous ledge. Stand with the cavern wall on your left. If you look ahead, there’s another ledge further ahead and lower down, where the last white mining outcrop is. You should be able to easily wiredash across. Otherwise, you can climb up near the western end of this section.
