|Connecting locations:|| Desert Resort |
Relic Castle (Japanese: 古代の城 Ancient Castle) is a large castle in the middle of the Desert Resort. It is comprised of five different floors and a maze. An extremely strong Volcarona appears at the end of the maze, which can be caught. Toward the end of the maze, Ghetsis is found as well, as Cheren, the Champion, and yourself investigate the castle for the dark/light stone. It has a lot of quicksands that are the main way to travel within the castle.
During the main game, you can only access the top floor of the Castle itself and the 1st floor of the underground Part of the castle.
After the main game has been completed, you can go to the Relic Chamber and find a mountain of sand. Through the hole at the top, there is a couple of rooms and a Team Plasma Grunt. Defeat him in battle, get to the Volcarona Chamber, and you will find Ryoku. He will give you a TM and grant you access to the Main Chamber. There, Volcarona is waiting.
Exit the castle, go back to the Relic chamber, and then enter the maze again. Keep going left, and you will eventually reach a room with stairs. Keep going up the stairs and you eventually reach the Relic Castle-Castle. You will be on the raised floor. There, you can find the TM Earthquake.
A Backpacker will offer you a fossil which you could revive at Nacrene City. Note that you can only get one fossil, so choose wisely.
