#1majinbuu55Posted 10/30/2012 5:49:17 AM
Where are both of the hidden grottos in PinwheelForest? Iknow serebii has it but Icant use my computer right now, so could you be a little more specific?

looks like one is just down a set of steps near a pond/lake towards the bottom area. the other is in a corner with a large rock and several smaller ones

there's about 20 grottoes in total

the most notable ones are
the on on route 18 has a chance for a dragonite
and lostlorn forrest (on black) has herracross

each one has 100% chance for something to be in there

40% chance for an item
40% chance for a hidden item
20% chance for a pokemon

most grottoes have a 3 different pokemons that can appear, a couple have 4

usually the chances are
common pokemon - 15%
uncommon pokemon - 4%
rare pokemon - 1%
(note it adds up to that 20% chance for a pokemon to appear)

once you enter a grotto it is considered "used"

every 256 steps has a 5% chance to reload every "opened" grotto

when you start the game each grotto is random, once you go in ("open" it) it will then follow the above 5% chance to refresh

i.e
you visit 5 grottoes early in the game and walk 20,000 steps chances are that just those 5 will have something new inside, the unopened ones will stay whatever they are

The second one is outside the actual wood, near the Challenge Rock.
