The Driftveil Drawbridge (Japanese: ホドモエの跳ね橋 Hodomoe Drawbridge) is a bridge that connects Driftveil City and Route 5. It is the pride of Driftveil City and also called Charizard Bridge for its beauty and elegance.

Wild Pokémon often fly over the bridge, leaving shadows which can either cause a battle with the flying Pokémon or one of its feathers may fall and be picked up.

In Black 2 and White 2, a small sidequest occurs where if the player has given a man in an orange shirt a Fresh Water at Skyarrow Bridge, then they will meet up with the same man here. Should the player give him another Fresh Water, then he will become rehydrated and dash to the Tubeline Bridge.

In the anime

Driftveil Drawbridge in the anime

Driftveil Drawbridge was first seen in Crisis from the Underground Up!, where it was shut down when Dr. Zager hacked into its control system. The bridge was mentioned in Dazzling the Nimbasa Gym! by Elesa after Ash's Gym battle. Elesa told Ash that he could not travel there yet because it was closed for repairs at the time. After that there is also a tunnel road opening to Driftveil City. Ash finally crossed the bridge to Driftveil City in The Mighty Accelguard to the Rescue!, meeting Clay in the process.

  • Like other Unova bridges, if the player rides the bicycle here, the bicycle music will not play.
  • Several sound effects are played at a fixed interval, alternating between the sound of a plane, the sound of a helicopter, and the cry of Charizard, the latter being a reference to the bridge's alternative name.
  • It is the only bridge in Unova that the player can cross without the need to enter a gate.
