Route 5       Route 7

Route 6 (Japanese: 6番道路 Route 6) is a route in western Unova, connecting Driftveil City to Chargestone Cave. It is also the home to Mistralton Cave. The route experiences different weather conditions based on the current season. For example, in the wintertime, it snows.

Route description

Several rivers run through the route with many wooden bridges spanning across them. The center of the route houses the Season Research Lab, a facility dedicated to the research of the seasons and how Deerling and Sawsbuck are affected by them.

To the north of the research lab is a house with a woman who will heal the player's Pokémon. The river by the house leads to Mistralton Cave, which is at the east-most side of the route. The entrance to Chargestone Cave is located in the northwest.

Many Foongus live on this route, some taking the appearance of item balls on the overworld map.

In Black 2 and White 2, one Hidden Grotto is located just north of Pokémon Breeder April and another one in front of the Mistralton Cave entrance (Surf required).

Places of interest

Season Research Lab

The Season Research Lab is a facility dedicated to the research of the seasons, located at the center of the route. As such, there are several Scientists with Deerling in the area.

It also works as a greenhouse, with the scientists cultivating plants inside a glass case by controlling the temperature and humidity. The plants they grow depend on the season. For example, in Winter, the glass is hot to the touch and a plant with healthy leaves is growing inside the glass, while in Spring, the glass is slightly cold and the scientists are growing some Berries.

A thermometer on the wall shows the current temperature at Route 6, which also varies heavily depending on the season. It reaches -9°C in Winter and 25°C in Spring.

One of the scientists inside the lab requests that the player show him one of each seasonal form of Deerling. When his request is fulfilled, he will give the player a Leaf Stone.
