Route 228 (Japanese: 228ばんどうろ Route 228) is a route in northeastern Sinnoh located in the Battle Zone. It connects Route 226 and Route 229.

Route description

Route 228 in Diamond and Pearl

On this route, some of the highest-leveled wild Pokémon in Sinnoh can be found. Like Route 111 in Hoenn, there is a raging sandstorm here that will affect all battles. Route 228 is also home to the Move Tutor's house, who can teach any starter Pokémon Hydro Cannon, Blast Burn or Frenzy Plant. In Platinum, the cave in the middle of the route holds the Rock Peak Ruins, where Regirock can be battled if the player has a fateful encounter Regigigas in their party.
