Underground Path (Routes 5-6)       Dark Cave

The Underground Path (Japanese: ちかつうろ Underground Passageway) between Route 7 and Route 8 is located directly underneath Saffron City and terminates just to the east and to the west of Saffron City.

Route description

The path is a long, dark hallway that travels under Saffron. Despite the cave-like lighting of the path, there is no threat to be attacked by wild Pokémon. Occasionally, by using an Itemfinder, items that trainers have dropped along the path can be found and retrieved.

In Generation II and IV, this path was closed due to many ill-mannered trainer battles.

Differences among generations

The only difference across all four generations was the removal of the Path as a playable area in Generations II and IV. The reason is explained in a note from the Celadon Police: "...Uncouth trainers have been holding battles in the Underground Path. Because of rising complaints by local residents, the Underground Path has been sealed indefinitely." It's possible that the Bikers fought on Route 8 are responsible since one of them makes a comment about the Police closing down the Path for the same reason.
