Pothole Field is a field full of Grass and holes in Link's Awakening.[1]


Pothole Field is located behind Richard's Villa on Koholint Island. When Link cuts the Grass in Pothole Field, some of them reveal holes. Link has to work his way around these holes to find an Owl Statue that he can dig in front of to obtain the Slime Key. The best way to tell if they have holes in them is to use the Power Bracelets; if Link can't pull them off the ground, even with an L-2, then they contain holes. Link gains access to Pothole Field by going to Kanalet Castle and retrieving Prince Richard's five Golden Leaves.
