After completing the dungeon there is a final room with a paradise theme.

The first time you arrive here, Ra'akuma, the Elder Vaporeon, greets you with surprise and thanks you for warding off the troublesome Pokémon before they could ruin the sanctuary.

  • Ra'akuma: By the stars... You did it... I - I am impressed, outsider
  • Ra'akuma: You drove off the curse of the bog! Perhaps your kind aren't all alike afterall...
  • Ra'akuma: I... Must apologize for our first encounter with eachother, outsider. You must understand that my people have gone through troubling times since yours have arrived on these isles...
  • Ra'akuma: Come. Allow me to show you the sanctuary.
  • Ra'akuma: Excuse my emotional state, outsider. I have not seen the bog for what it used to be in many moons... My kin and I would travel here often just to witness it's beauty...
  • Ra'akuma: Before your people came to this land, the bog was a place filled with life... This was it's heart.
  • Ra'akuma: I am grateful that you stopped the blighted ones from destroying this land... But I am certain that is the last we will see of them. However, they will think twice before they curse this sanctuary... Thank you, outsider.
  • Ra'akuma: I am grateful for what you have done... Meet me at my establishment at the Southeastern Village and I shall reward you with my knowledge of my people.

Dungeon Objective

By completing this dungeon the player can later talk to the Mayor and obtain the Aquatic Key. This key is needed to enter the dungeon Murky Trench and obtain HM Dive. You can find the Mayor near the entrance of Murky Trench, which is located far south, on a separate island across the ocean in Archford. Dusts are common here, and this is the only place where Mudkip is obtainable at.


  • Boggy Wastes used to look differently until the Muk and Gulpin overtook it.
    • This is a play on how pollution destroys beautiful places.
    • This can also be seen as a reference to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky's dungeon Sky Peak; where Muk and Grimer had taken over, polluting and destroying the original beauty it had.
  • The Gulpin and Muk are classified in the same manner as players.
    • "Malihini" are the term used for outsiders.
