How to use the Digging Drill

Trainers can use the Digging Drill to open a wall and create a Secret Room. The only thing you have to do is choose a wall, and Press A to burrow a hole into it. This will be the entrance of your base.

You do not have to be so picky in the location; it is possible to relocate Secret Rooms by purchasing another Digging Drill. Players can have only one Secret Base. The first will get dismantled once you dig a new door.
