Route 119 (Japanese: 119ばんどうろ Route 119) is a route in central Hoenn, connecting Route 118 and Fortree City. The route is home to the Weather Institute.

Route description

Heading north from Route 118, Route 119 begins as a short path before reaching the southernmost point of a large field of long grass. Because of the length of the grass, it is impossible to ride a Bicycle through the field, forcing Trainers to walk through. As Trainers enter the grass, it often begins to rain, and this affects all battles on the route. Located in the field are six Trainers, as well as two items. North of the field, Route 119 parallels a river for a short distance, allowing Trainers to Surf across the river to gain access to another Trainer, an item and another patch of grass.

Returning to the main path, Route 119 passes a Trainer as it turns northeast to follow the course of the river, which flows north-south to its southern end on Route 118. As it returns north, the route begins climbing uphill. After ascending a set of stairs, Trainers can pass through a patch of grass to reach a soft soil patch with Sitrus and Leppa Berries. Also, by using the Acro Bike, they can cross a narrow bridge to reach an area with no items of interest other than two potential secret base locations, and a hidden Calcium.

The main path of the route continues up the side of a hill, ascending two more flights of stairs and turning north-east as it passes a pair of Trainers, including Pokémon Ranger Catherine, who can be rematched. At the top of the hill, near Catherine, the route sharply turns to the west, crossing one of the longest bridges in Hoenn to traverse the river valley below. On the other side, the route curves north as it climbs up another set of stairs. Just north of this point is Pokémon Ranger Jackson, followed by a grass patch to his immediate north.

North of this patch is a split in the route. The west branch contains only one Trainer and offers a direct path to the Weather Institute. One must use the Mach Bike to get up the muddy slope. The east branch has no Trainers but is occupied by a large amount of long grass. Near the northeast corner of this path is an Elixir lying in the grass. To the west of the item, the east path ascends two sets of stairs before merging with the west path, which passes another Trainer on the way to this junction, on top of the hill.

Between this point and the Weather Institute, Route 119 runs northwest along the edges of a pair of grassy areas. At the Weather Institute, the route turns east, crossing the river once again.

On the east bank of the river, Route 119 comes to a three-way intersection. To the south of this point is the only area where Trainers can Surf from on the upper portion of the river. The main path of Route 119 turns north, where the player will encounter their rival for a battle.

By Surfing south along the river from this point, Trainers can reach a Leaf Stone located just north of a waterfall. By Surfing north, Trainers that can use Waterfall can climb a small waterfall to reach an upper area of Route 119 containing Hondew Berries. Trainers with Acro Bikes will be able to reach a Rare Candy by crossing a series of bridges.

North of the three-way junction, Route 119 continues to the northeast, passing a pair of Ninja Boys attempting to camouflage themselves as trees amongst the forest. Near the northern end is another soft soil patch containing three Pomeg Berry plants. Directly east of the patch is the west entrance to Fortree City.

Finding Feebas

050Diglett.png This section is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Needs spawn probabilities when fishing in the Feebas blocks, or at least the frequency of Feebas compared to other Pokémon.
Feebas are elusive along Route 119. Instead of being found in any fishing location as would be customary with most Pokémon, Feebas are located in only six random water blocks along the route. Adding to the difficulty, other Pokémon besides Feebas will still appear in the Feebas blocks as well. There is no known easy method to determine which blocks contain Feebas: the only way is fish repeatedly into each and every water block on the route, doing so enough times to be reasonably confident that no Feebas are in that block (or else just risk missing a block). Any rod can find Feebas. Once hooked, a Feebas is an easy catch, and they can be fished from the same tile many times.

The tiles appear to change location arbitrarily whenever the trendy phrase in Dewford Town changes.

Trivia

  • The large field of tall grass in Route 119 contains six Trainers, called "The Mimic Circle," who are specially coded to mimic the movements of the player. (If a Trainer is "revealed" by using Cut to remove the long grass, he will no longer follow the player.)
  • While outside of battle, the weather along this route can either be clear, rainy or have a thunderstorm occurring, depending on the day. The thunderstorm has no special effect in battle, creating only rain.
