Route 16 is an east-west route located in central Kanto. The eastern end of the route is at Celadon City. Its western terminus is at the northern tip of Route 17 on Cycling Road.

Route description

Main path

Like Route 18 at the southern end of Cycling Road, Route 16 runs directly east-west for its entire length.

Five paces outside Celadon, a Cut-able tree blocks a passage leading to the north half of Route 16. Several paces west of this spot, Route 16 narrows before widening just east of a lookout station. In this station, trainers are forced to board their Bicycle or, in the event that they do not own a Bicycle, are forced to return east to Celadon. In Generation III only, one of Professor Oak's aides is present at this station, giving trainers who have collected data on at least 40 Pokémon an Amulet Coin. West of the station, Route 16 becomes part of Cycling Road.

Now on the bike path, the remainder of the route is filled with Bikers possessing mostly Template:Type2 Pokémon. Near the middle of the group, Route 16 turns south for a short distance before becoming Route 17 north of Route 17's grassy area.

A sleeping Snorlax is often found at the point where Route 16 becomes narrow in Generation I and Generation III. To move him, trainers must play a Poké Flute to awaken the Pokémon.

Northern half

The northern half of the route proceeds directly north of the Cut-able tree before turning west at the lone patch of grass on Route 16. In Generation III only, just west of this patch are a pair of trainers. Five paces west of the grass is the north half of the lookout station.

On the other side of the station, which does not require trainers to ride a bike in this area, the only item of interest is a house owned by a reclusive trainer. In exchange for keeping her whereabouts a secret, she will give trainers HM02, Fly.

The route terminates in a dead end just west of the house.

The route was shortened by nearly half in Generation II. Also, every trainer was removed from the route and the lookout station on the northern path was eliminated. Finally, the recluse trainer is no longer present and may have moved to Route 28.

The amount of grass was also reduced.
