The Ice Path (Japanese: こおりのぬけみちIce Loophole) is a four-floored cave located in the Johto region that connects Route 44 with Blackthorn City. It is known for its numerous ice puzzles, which vary in size and difficulty. One example is a Strength puzzle, involving pushing boulders into holes in order to progress. It is the only place in Johto where wildSwinub, Jynx and Delibird can be caught.
In Pokémon Gold and Silver, the Ice Path looked like an average cave. However, in Pokémon Crystal, its tileset was changed to make it look more ice-like. The icy design remains in Generation IV's remakes. Some of the puzzles were also redesigned for Pokémon Crystal.
