Route 10[edit]

Route 10

Route 10 is a small zone that leads to Rock Tunnel. The area here contains one of the very few Electric Pokemon available to you at this point in the game, so stick around for a while.

Hopefully, you made sure to pick up HM05 Flash from one of Professor Oak's aides in Route 2 before going into the cave, 'cause it's about to get really dark for you.

Going through Rock Tunnel may seem like a roundabout route, but it's the only way, as there is a Snorlax blocking Route 12 and the thirsty officer blocking Saffron City will not let the player in.

Inside the Pokécenter south of this area you will find one of Oak's Aides. Talk to him and, if you have complete data on 20 types of Pokémon, he will reward you with an Everstone, which can be held by a Pokémon to prevent it from evolving.

As a side note, remember to return to this area once you have the ability to Surf, as the waters here will lead you into the Power Plant, and a powerful Legendary Pokemon!

New Pokémon[edit]

#100 Voltorb
Pokemon 100Voltorb.png
If you missed catching a Pikachu while you were in the Viridian Forest, this is the only Electric pokemon you'll see until you can visit the Power Plant with Surf. Voltorb's only offensive Electric move is Spark at level 21, so it will need further TM's to make it strong.

It's a good idea to pick up the TM from Rocket Game Corner in Celadon City if you plan on making Voltorb your primary Electric type. Voltorb evolves into Electrode at Level 30.
