Route 43 (Japanese: 43ばんどうろ Route 43) is a route in northern Johto, connecting the Lake of Rage and Mahogany Town.

Route description

Route 43 has two paths to travel on it. One of these paths, while more convenient as there is no long grass on it, will cost PokémonDollar.png1000 if a Trainer travels on it before vanquishing Team Rocket. The other side of the path, however, features many Trainers and a lot of long grass to make it through to get to the lake.

The first of these two paths in the one on the right, which takes the player through a gate. After passing through and ending up on the other side, there is a straight path north which curves slightly leftward before opening up and allowing passage straight to the Lake of Rage.

The second path, to the left, features nearly complete coverage by long grass, as well as a multitude of Trainers. While on this path, Trainers may use Surf to reach an upper part of the route that is not otherwise able to be reached except on a trip back from the Lake of Rage, which takes a path northward around the lake. It is on this path, on the north side of the Lake of Rage, where players can meet Wesley on Wednesdays, if, of course, he or she has the necessary HM on one of his/her Pokémon to Cut down the small trees in the way.

Trivia

  • Route 43 and Route 217 are the only two routes in the Pokémon world which have their northern terminus at a lakefront, as well as leading to the seventh Gym location. Coincidentally, both Gyms specialize in Ice-type Pokémon.
  • A graphical glitch occurs on this route in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. At the north pond, three tiles at the top of the grassy patch appear to be empty at first glance, but when the player (or his or her partner Pokémon) walks over the tiles, tall grass will appear underfoot, and wild Pokémon can appear. At most two of the three tiles will be grassy at the same time, allowing for comparisons to be made between the tiles.
