Route 18       Route 20

Route 19 (Japanese: 19ばんすいどう Water Route 19), known as Sea Route 19 in the Generation I games and on a sign in FireRed and LeafGreen, is a water route in southern Kanto, connecting Fuchsia City and Route 20.

In Gold, Silver, and Crystal , the Route is initially blocked.

Route description

Heading south from Fuchsia City, Route 19 becomes a dual carriageway, as a series of ledges and a rock wall separate the route into a southbound-only west half and a dual-direction east half. After three ledges, the rock wall ends and the route is reunited on an unnamed beach. In Generation I and FireRed and LeafGreen, two Swimmers patrol the beach for Trainers to battle. Just south of the Swimmers is the Route 19 signpost, located on the shore of the ocean.

Route 19 turns west at its southern terminus, becoming Route 20.

Differences among generations

Each generation has added their own signature touch to Route 19, each time maintaining the essence of the route.

Generation I

In Yellow, Summer Beach House (Japanese: うみのいえ Sea House) was placed on the beach below Fuchsia City. Inside, a man known as the Surfin' Dude (Japanese: なみのりオヤジ Surfing Old Man) allows Trainers to partake in a minigame called Pikachu's Beach if the Trainer has a Surfing Pikachu. The surfer, as well as the Surfing Pikachu premise, mirror that of the anime episode The Pi-Kahuna.

Generation II

When Trainers first approach Route 19 from the eastern terminus, the land portion of the route is under construction for renovations. After entering Route 19 from the west, the construction will be completed.

The ocean part of the route was shrunken by approximately 50%; lastly, a gate was added between Fuchsia City and the beach.

Generation III

All aspects of the route were restyled in FireRed and LeafGreen, as the rock columns that bordered the route in the first two generations were replaced by a series of prototypical rock formations. Also, the beaches were given a rounded look to enhance their appearance.

Generation IV

The route was completely restyled in HeartGold and SoulSilver. The row of rocks lining the series of cliffs has been removed and many rocks have been strewn around the beach and the sea. The beach itself is also much thinner, with the fences and rocks removed. The ocean area remains roughly the same size as in Generation II, although an island is added in the southeast corner. Like in Generation II, there is a gate separating the beach and Fuchsia City.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Route 19 was where Red was attacked by a wild Dragonite while finding the HM Surf. He was rescued by what he thought was a mermaid, but was actually Misty. She found the HM, which broke after Dragonite's rampage, and offered to trade over her Gyarados, which could Surf.
