Dust clouds are a new feature introduced in Generation V alongside rustling grass, rippling water and flying Pokémon shadows. They can be found in several caves throughout Unova.

If you walk into a dust cloud, you'll either find a Gem, Evolutionary Stone, or encounter a rare Pokémon. Gems can only be found this way in Black and White, though some gems can be found on the ground in their sequels. They can also help out your Pokémon in battles by powering up their moves with the right gem.
