Route 5 (Japanese: 5番道路 Route 5) is a route in central Unova, connecting Nimbasa City to the Driftveil Drawbridge.

Route 5 in the winter in Black and White

Route description

Route 5 is a short forested path, dominated by a paved road that connects Nimbasa City with the Driftveil Drawbridge. There is a trailer parked on the road, which is owned by the hungry maid.

Upon the initial visit in Black and White, the player will meet the Champion, Alder, for the first time. He will request that the player and Cheren battle two Preschoolers.

Once the player has entered the Hall of Fame, Cheren can be found facing the fence at the bottom of the route. He talks about strength and his journey, and then goes to Victory Road, where he can be fought for the final time.

In Black 2 and White 2, a Hidden Grotto is located in the alcove northeast of the trailer. Bianca will guide the player to it the first time Route 5 is visited.

The Pokémon Breeder near the Hidden Grotto will sell 5 random Berries that raise the friendship of the Pokémon they are used on, but lower the base EVs of that Pokémon in one of their stats. She will sell the five Berries for a total of PokémonDollar.png200. The player can only buy 5 Berries once per day. As it is based on the random number generator, Berries can be manipulated by soft resetting the game, but only if the player does not talk to her. When the game is restarted, she will sell different Berries.

Gourmet maniac

Main article: Item maniac

A Maid found in the sole trailer on this route, will sniff out any gourmet cooking ingredients in the player's bag and offer to buy them for a price higher than usual.

Trainer Tips
There are different Cases for each type of item. Items are placed automatically in the correct Case by their type. The name of the Case tells you what type of items will be kept there. Also, you can place anything in Free Space, no matter what it is. So you can keep items you often use in one place.

In the anime

Route 5 in the anime

Ash and his friends were on Route 5 in Ash Versus the Champion!, where he met and had a battle with Alder. The square shown here was very similar to its game counterpart's, with all sorts of artists performing. A bit past the Driftveil Drawbridge is also a town which holds Pokémon Musical Contests as shown in A Maractus Musical!.

In The Four Seasons of Sawsbuck! it was shown that there is also a large forest located along Route 5, home to groups of Deerling and Sawsbuck. Deep in the forest is a mysterious place were very rarely all four seasonal forms of Sawsbuck can be seen together. As shown in The Lonely Deino!, there is a Day Care center close to Driftveil City where Iris befriended a Deino.

Trivia

  • The wild Pokémon in this route are the same Pokémon as in Route 16, with the exception of the Pokémon that appear during outbreaks or in Hidden Grottos.
