Route 9 (Japanese: 9番道路 Route 9) is a route in western Kalos, connecting Ambrette Town and Glittering Cave. The route is also known as Spikes Passage (Japanese: トゲトゲ山道 Spiky Mountain Path).


This route is covered with rough terrain, formed by numerous former Rhyhorn racers in a place where no route existed before. Due to the terrain very unpleasant to walk on, it can only be passed while riding a rental Rhyhorn. Some parts of the route have been softened so that they can be walked on and used as resting spots. Big boulders block some parts of the route, but they can be easily smashed apart by Rhyhorn.
