Route 12 is a lengthy north-south route in east Kanto. This route is also known as the Silence Bridge (Japanese: サイレンズブリッジ Silence Bridge) between its southern terminus at Route 13 and the lookout station just south of Lavender Town, its northern terminus. As a whole, the route is a large bridge built over water, making it a popular gathering spot for fishermen. The middle point of the Silence Bridge connects to a lookout station on Route 11.

Route description

Lavender to the lookout station

The bridge that holds the entire length of Route 12 begins just south of Lavender Town. Shortly after its starting point, the bridge comes to a three-way intersection, with the left fork leading to a dead end. The right fork turns south east of the intersection and comes to another intersection, leading to another dead end path holding a sign informing trainers of Lavender Town to the north.

South of this intersection is a lookout station separating the north portion of Route 12 from the Silence Bridge.

The Silence Bridge makes up most of Route 12. The first intersection on the Silence Bridge portion of Route 12 is yet another of the three-way variety. The left path leads to a dead end while the right path continues southward. After a brief southward stretch, the bridge turns southwest to avoid an island in the water, eventually intersecting a north-south bridge segment on the western edge of Route 12. The main path of the route uses a portion of this segment before turning east onto an east-west segment. Route 12 then makes a sharp south turn onto another continuous bridge piece. Route 12 gradually makes its way south, passing a fishing pier before arriving at an island, the first piece of solid land along the route's main path since Lavender.

On the west shore of the island, the Silence Bridge resumes, making an upside-down "U" as it proceeds south. After a short time, the bridge makes a turn to the east. This segment of the bridge comes to an end roughly 15 paces east of this point, but Route 12 has already turned off onto another bridge segment, a north-south stretch, by this point. About eight paces south of the intersection between the two segments is the designated "Sport Fishing Area" at the intersection of Routes 11 and 12.

Continuing south, the bridge turns to the southeast just ahead of another island. On this island in every generation is the home of the Fishing Brothers' younger brother, who will give a Super Rod to anyone who expresses a passion for fishing. In Generation III, he rewards players with Net Balls for showing him record-breaking Magikarps. West of his house, the bridge resumes, traveling to the south and east before coming to an end just after an intersection with another segment. This segment carries the route south to a series of intersections. The two westward routes in this area lead to a peninsula containing a forested area accessible only by using Cut. The lone eastward path leads to another fishing pier. Just south of the southern peninsula path, the route briefly turns to the east before returning south.

At the next intersection, the main path of the route continues south while a westward path leads to the only grassy patch on Route 12. Cut is required for access, however.

The main path of Route 12 continues south along a tree-lined shoreline before becoming Route 13 two paces south of the grassy patch.

Trainers with a telephone symbol by their names will give their Pokégear number to the player, and may call or be called for a rematch with higher-level Pokémon.

Differences among generations

Generations I and III

A sleeping Snorlax is often found blocking the intersection between Routes 11 and 12. To move it, a Poké Flute is required. Also, in Generation III, TM16 was replaced with TM48, and after the Fishing Guru's younger brother gives the player a Super Rod, he will give away a Net Ball if he is shown a Magikarp of a certain size.

Generations II and IV

The route is very similar between the two generations. Route 12 was shortened considerably in Generations II and IV. Other notable changes included the removal of all grassy areas along the route, the removal of the lookout station between the Silence Bridge and Lavender Town, and the isolation of the former location of the grassy area, now accessible only by Surfing. The number of trainers was also reduced to three in Generation II, down from eight in previous and future Generations. Also, it is important to note that in HeartGold and SoulSilver, if the player beat Snorlax, after a week, it will have moved to outside the Route lookout station, partially blocking the path. It will be identical to your first encounter on Route 11.

In Generation II, the signpost at the north end of Route 12 now reads "Fishing spot". To compensate, the Route 12 notice present on this sign before was moved to the former "Sport fishing area" sign at Route 11. The signpost on Route 13 just southwest of Route 12's end, however, still reads "Route 13: North to Silence Bridge".

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Route 12 debuted in Wake Up-You're Snorlax! in the Red, Green & Blue chapter, where a bike race was taking place, but a Snorlax was blocking the road, a male Swimmer and a Bug Catcher wanted to get past. A Solution was later made by Red by using the honey that had fallen from Beedrill's hive onto Bulbasaur's head as bait to get the Snorlax to budge which later worked and won Red the race.
