Secret Grove is a bijou grove hidden east of Lagoona Lake accessible only after the player obtains HM3 Surf in Port Decca. It is a compact forest-like area filled with cherry blossom trees and ponds with lily pads. A group of Legendary Pokémon known as Swords of Justice reside here.
Encountering Swords of Justice
When the player walks in here, he or she can see quite a few cherry blossom trees and lily pads. In order to continue, turn left and walk all the way until reaching the place where a giant rock is placed. The first 3 members in the Swords of Justice — Cobalion, Virizion and Terrakion, are seen here. When the player tries to approach them, they suddenly throw a sword into the ground and flee from the grove, roaming around Roria.
Once the player has obtained all 3 of the afore-mentioned Pokémon and positions them in party, the player can now obtain the final member of this group — Keldeo, who is a Mythical Pokémon instead, in the same spot where the other 3 Pokémon fled. When encountering Keldeo, the player only has one chance, so save beforehand and turn off Autosave. As Keldeo is a Water-type Pokémon, Net Balls are very effective and are recommended to be used on it.
Warning: Players can only battle the following Pokémon once! Save beforehand and turn off Autosave.
|Requires Cobalion, Virizion and Terrakion in party|

|If attempts of catching the above Pokémon failed, immediately leave the game and rejoin without saving, in order to secure a second chance.

- The background music, which is the same with that in Anthian Park, is based on Johto National Park in the core series remake games Pokémon Heart Gold and Soul Silver.
- The rock with 3 cuts is a reference to a similar rock in Pledge Grove, Unova from Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.
