Maniac Tunnel

    On Route 214 in DPPt there was a cave that could form into a tunnel and connect to the Solaceon Ruins if you caught all 26 Unown shapes.

    What did you think of this shortcut? Did you bother capturing more Unown to unlock more within this small area in Sinnoh?

    I only completed that tunnel in Diamond version, but I never even tried to finish it in my other Shinou based games since it was too much work for very little pay-off. I never even used that tunnel for any purpose in Diamond version despite completing it.

    I hated how you had to get all the Unowns just so that the digger would finish the tunnel but I did complete that side mission in both Diamond and Pearl after a lot of work. I don't use it as a shortcut because there are wild Geodude and Hippopotas inside that make traveling really annoying. :p

    The shortcut wasn't worth the trouble in all honesty. I only completed the tunnel because I'm the kind of player who enjoys finishing every little event and subplot in the games, otherwise I wouldn't have wasted so much time collecting Unknown. The only bright side to finishing the tunnel was the increased number of wild Hippopotas that could be found.

    Never finished it although there's this one item on a ledge at the Solaceon Ruins that can only be reached by using the maniac's tunnel, so I gotta finish that tunnel if I want to get the item.

    Was there even a point in expanding the cave into a tunnel? With so many wild mons in there I don't think it counts as a short cut. I did finish it in Pearl but I never went through it.

    It made Hippopotas a bit more common. So that’s a plus.
