On each page of our walkthrough like this, we'll cover any and all of the obtainable Pokémon, item locations, trainers and their teams that you might come across here, as well as walking you through any key steps of the story, puzzles or challenges along the way.
Where applicable, note that our walkthrough pages will be down into separate sections referring to each of your visits to a given location, seeing as you often backtrack or revisit various places in your quest to become Galar League Champion. And of course if there are any, we'll clearly mark any spoilers, too!
For more explainers, meanwhile, or walkthrough pages on more locations in Sword and Shield, head back to our main Pokémon Sword and Shield walkthrough and guide hub.

Pokémon Sword and Shield Galar Mine No.2 - available Pokémon, items and trainers
Galar Mine No.2 is a simple indoor route connecting Hulbury to Motostoke Outskirts.
Heading inside for the first time, you'll soon encounter Bede, who's waiting for another battle. Take him down, and then spend some time catching the available Pokémon and exploring the small cave path.
Further in, you'll encounter Team Yell blocking the way. They call you a little mug, which obviously you won't stand for, so it's time to take them down in a double battle with your trusty pal Hop.
Hop heals you up after the battle, and then a little further on past a pool of water you'll see Kaby talking to more Team Yell grunts - he's your next Gym Leader, and your goal is to stop off at the Budew Drop Inn again. Hop also gives you a quick explanation of Poké Jobs here, if you're interested!

2020 has seen a few new announcements - such as Mythical Zarude, the ability to transfer Pokémon to Pokémon Home, news of the Sword and Shield Expansion Pass and the release of Gigantamax Toxtricity. Elsewhere, our Pokémon Sword and Shield walkthrough gives an overview of the game. Otherwise, we cover everything from the Wild Area, starters Sobble, Scorbunny and Grookey, lists of all TM locations and TRs, all Galarian forms and the Legendaries Zacian and Zamazenta.
When you're done all the exploring you fancy (the cave is completely linear, barring a very minor alcove with a high-level Gastrodon waiting for you - that requires Rotom Bike's surfing ability that you unlock later on), head on outside, to Motostoke Outskirts for the next steps in your quest, or cycle back to our main Pokémon Sword and Shield walkthrough and guide hub for all the other pages we have like this.
