Old Destiny Cavern

Old Destiny Cavern.

  • Destiny Cavern used to act as the place where players first appeared upon starting a new character. Since then, new sections were added before and after this area in order to slowly ease players into the game.
  • The tutorial is skipped completely if /giveup is done when a sprite is picked.
  • In 2011, the individual chambers used to use the same tiles as the main chamber.
  • The area before Destiny Cavern is called Summoner's Platform
  • Before the January 2019 update, Abra, Natu, Meditite, Rhyhorn, Phanpy, Hippopotas, Pachirisu, and Mareep were all starter Pokémon.
    • Togepi--and the rest of its Family--are now Fairy-type, but it was still included as a Normal-type Starter.
    • Additionally, the area comprised of 7 areas consisting of 4 Pokémon from certain types.
