Route 8       Route 10

Route 9 (Japanese: 9番道路 Route 9) is a route in northeast Galar that connects Circhester, Spikemuth, and the Route 9 Tunnel. The middle portion of the route is also known as Circhester Bay (Japanese: キルクスの入り江 Circus Bay), while the southern portion is also known as Outer Spikemuth (Japanese: スパイクタウンはずれ Spike Town Outskirts).

Route description

Route 9 starts out as a cold, snowy route. The same river that runs through Route 8 also appears here. Unlike on Route 8, however, here it is possible to traverse the river and access a secluded area where TM64 (Avalanche) and a wanderer Glalie can be found.

Circhester Bay is a large body of water largely covered in floating chunks of ice, creating a natural maze that must be traversed in order to reach the other side. Several pieces of land are also present here, where Trainers and a Pokémon Camp can be found. In the west, there's a secluded beach with a pair of Swimmers, and in the south, the bay is bordered by another sandy beach. Due to the area's watery nature, either an upgraded Rotom Bike or a Poké Job Pokémon is required to cross it.

Unlike the rest of the route, Outer Spikemuth is not covered in snow or ice, instead having lush fields of tall grass. Two entrances to Spikemuth are also found here, with the main gate being initially closed until the player has earned the Dark Badge. In the west, Outer Spikemuth provides access to the Route 9 Tunnel, which connects Route 9 to Route 7.

Route 9 in Pokémon Adventures

Pokémon Adventures

In Pokémon Adventures, there's a highway running across Circhester Bay, allowing it to be crossed by driving.

Sword & Shield chapter

Route 9 appeared in this chapter, where Henry and Casey traveled through it on their way to Spikemuth. Using his newly upgraded Rotom Bike, Henry chose to cross Circhester Bay by traveling across the water so he could battle the wild Pokémon there for training, while Casey, Marvin, and Professor Magnolia used the highway to get to the other side. After training for a while with his recently obtained Mr. Rime, Henry made it to the other side and was reunited with the others at Outer Spikemuth.
