Diglett's Cave       Underground Path (Kanto Routes 7-8)

The Underground Path (Japanese: ちかつうろ Underground Path) between Routes 5 and 6 is located directly underneath Saffron City and terminates just to the north and to the south of Saffron City.

In Generations I and III, the path is the only way to travel between Cerulean City and Vermilion City until the gates surrounding Saffron City are opened, which does not occur until their guards receive a drink from Celadon City. In Generations II and IV, both entrances to the path are blocked until the problem at the Power Plant is solved.

Route description

The path is a long, dark hallway that travels under Saffron City. Despite the cave-like lighting of the path, there is no threat to be attacked by wild Pokémon. Occasionally, by using an Itemfinder or Dowsing MCHNHGSS, items that Trainers have dropped along the path can be found and retrieved.

In Generations I and III, a girl in the Route 5 gate is willing to trade Pokémon with the player. In Pokémon Red, Blue, and FireRed, she asks for a Nidoran♂ in exchange for a Nidoran♀; in Pokémon Red, Green, and LeafGreen, she requests a Nidoran♀ in exchange for a Nidoran♂; in Pokémon Yellow, she offers a Machoke (which will immediately evolve into Machamp after being traded) in exchange for a Cubone; and in Japanese Pokémon Blue, she wants to trade her Poliwag for a Rattata.

Differences between generations

Across all generations, the design is virtually the same, only with updated graphics, although it is much shorter in Generations II and IV. In Generation IV, a man is in the Underground Path who will trade TM64 (Explosion) for the RageCandyBar that can be bought in Mahogany Town.

In Generation II only, the Underground Path is a map location in the Pokégear.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Although the Underground Path doesn't make an actual appearance in Pokémon Adventures, the map of Red's journey in volume 1 shows that he used it as a shortcut to Vermilion City between ...But Fearow Itself! and Danger: High Voltorb.
