Terrakion’s Hideout

After you’ve shown 50 footprints belonging to the Cavern Pokémon, Terrakion to Sonia, "Terrakion" IconTerrakion will start lurking inside the Lakeside Cave. The cave itself isn’t that big, so it shouldn’t take you long to find Terrakion. If you enter via the upper path (nearest to the Giant’s Bed), Terrakion’s to the left.


Use this illuminating stone to evolve Minccino, Togetic and Roselia.

Item Location
Shiny Stone In the area where the cave widens, on the left side of the boulders on the right (when facing away from either entrance).

Hidden Items

Item Location
Stardust Between the rocks along the right side of the wall, when coming from the lower entrance (near Dyna Tree Hill). Near where the cave begins to widen out.
