Route 4 (Japanese: 4番道路 Route 4) is route in central Unova, connecting Castelia City to Nimbasa City and Join Avenue. It also connects to Desert Resort. This route is a desert route, and has deep sand instead of tall grass.

Route description

Route 4 in Black and White.

Route 4 is a huge half-constructed road through a desert north of Castelia City. There are exits at the north and south. It starts off with a paved road which ends abruptly another fifty steps. Along the paved road are a number of large, half-done construction sites. To the west of the paved road by Castelia City's exit there is a large plot of deep sand and a cliff next to the ocean, with two Fishermen fishing there. To the north of the cliff-lined sea there is an another half-done construction site. In the middle of the route, there are two paved roads; one that goes north towards Nimbasa City, and the other facing west and eventually north, leading to the Desert Resort. Over the path to Nimbasa City, just north of this corrupted intersection, there is an overhead freeway going east and west. Trucks can be seen passing over the freeway at high speeds.

Two years later, the road connecting Nimbasa City and Castelia City has changed substantially, and differs dramatically depending on the version that is played. In Black 2 the construction of a settlement along the road has been completed, along with the road having been completed. In White 2, the construction was abandoned after ancient ruins were discovered and excavated.

In both Black 2 and White 2, in the house at the most easternW2 or westernB2 part of the street, there is an NPC who will heal the player's party.

Trainer Tips

Trainer Tips
Pokémon have a source of energy
for using moves.
It's called PP, meaning Power Points.
They have PP for each move.
When a move has no PP remaining,
that Pokémon cannot use that move.
That's a good time to head for
the Pokémon Center!

In the anime

Route 4 appeared in the anime from Emolga the Irresistible! until The Beartic Mountain Feud!. Unlike the game, it is a forest path connecting Castelia City and Nimbasa City. The Desert Resort lies to the west of Route 4.

Somewhere along the path is Litwick Mansion, a mansion that is occupied by wild Litwick and Lampent (Scare at the Litwick Mansion!). Past the mansion is a rocky area, as seen in The Dragon Master's Path!. Pass the rocky area is a short forest path which leads to Rainbow Valley (Cottonee in Love!). It is followed by a small town, as shown in A UFO For Elgyem!. Near the town is a huge lake that house many Water-type Pokémon (Facing Fear with Eyes Wide Open!). Beyond that is a small cave filled with Roggenrola (Gotta Catch A Roggenrola!), which is connected to another forest, which leads to another small town (Where Did You Go, Audino?). Another small town is located in the route, as shown in Movie Time! Zorua in "The Legend of the Pokémon Knight"!. This town has a small path connecting to Nimbasa Town.

Other parts of the route were shown when Ash and his friends left Nimbasa Town and set foot for Nimbasa City. This part was shown to be quite rocky, also having a large mountain home to large groups of Beartic.
