Escape Rope

The Escape Rope (Japanese: あなぬけのヒモ Hole-Escape Rope) is an item available in all of the handheld Pokémon games to date. They originally cost 550 each at Poké Marts, but this was changed to 250 in Pokémon Platinum (although this was reverted to the original 550 in Heart Gold and Soul Silver Versions). It can also be found lying around on the ground within the game, or held by Pokémon with the ability Pickup.

Escape Ropes are used, in places such as caves, to warp back to the entrance from which the player entered. This effect alleviates the necessity to have a Pokémon with Dig in the party, when a player wants to exit a cave or similar location quickly.

To date, Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness are the only games that have no use for the Escape Rope; because of this, trading is required to obtain the Escape Rope in these games. Due to the different map system used in those games, the Escape Rope's only use in those games is to either sell it for money or trade it back to a handheld game.

The Escape Rope cannot be used to escape from Spear Pillar, the Distortion World, or the Hall of Origin, as they are all considered to be outside of Mt. Coronet by the games' programming. It also cannot be used in Turnback Cave.
