Route 10 is the roadway connecting Opelucid City to the infamous Victory Road. It's a rugged forest area and two wooden bridges have been built across a gushing river, which flows from the east of the route towards the south. At the eastern end of the path one will find the Badge Check Gates.

Cheren and Bianca will appear when once one has crossed the first bridge. Guessing that the player character is on the way to the Pokémon League, Cheren challenges to test skill. Once he's beaten, Bianca hands a Max Revive. Both of them share words of encouragement before leaving, with Bianca doing so in her usual awkward manner.

Unova Route 10 JetBadge

The Jet Badge Gate.

There are eight Badge Check Gates; one for each Badge that can be earned, otherwise the guards won't allow to pass without the necessary Badge. The appearance of the Gate areas correspond to the Badge's Gym. For example, the Trio Gate has tables and chairs, in a reference to the Striaton City Gym's restaurant area; and the Insect Gate has a stairway carved into a large bug statue.

Once passing all the checks, the player character only has one final test standing between entering the Pokémon League: Victory Road.

In Pokémon Black and White 2, Victory Road sloped sides experiences a landslide and cave in, causing the Badge Check Gates to relocate to Route 23. As a precaution, Route 10 Became unvisited. Even they use Walk Through Walls, Route 10 is blocked by Trees.


There are eight trainers here, one of which is the rival, Cheren.
