Route 18 (Japanese: 18番道路 Route 18) is a route located in southern Kanto. It connects Route 17 in the west to Fuchsia City in the east.

Route description

The path of Route 18 runs directly east-west for its entire length.

Just outside Fuchsia is a small area south of the route's main path. Inside of this area is a large patch of tall grass occupied chiefly by wild Flying-type Pokémon and Trainers that specialize in them. West of the secluded area is a gate that serves as the divider between Cycling Road and the non-bike path portion of Route 18. On the second floor of the station, Trainers can participate in a trade. The details of the trade differ by version, however.

West of the gate, Route 18 continues along a narrow strip of land bordered on both sides by water. After a short distance, the route turns north, becoming Route 17 at a gap in a ledge along the route. In Generation II only, Route 17 starts immediately after the gate.

Differences among generations

Generation I and III

Generation I was the only Generation that allowed fishing on Route 18. Generation III prohibited fishing along the entire length of Cycling Road.

The trade of choice in the gate varied by version in Generation I. In Pokémon Red and Blue, as well as in the Japanese Red and Green, Lickitung is offered for a Slowbro. In Japanese Blue, Tauros is offered for Persian. In Pokémon Yellow, Parasect is offered for a Tangela.

In Generation III, the Pokémon that is offered is always Lickitung. However, the Pokémon necessary to complete the trade varies by version. In Pokémon FireRed, that Pokémon is Golduck. In Pokémon LeafGreen, it is Slowbro.

Generation II

The western terminus of the route was moved to the gate in Generation II. Also, the gate was moved farther west onto the narrow strip of land and the remaining portion of Route 18 exposed to water was blocked off by stones. The number of Trainers in the grassy area was reduced to one, and a Trainer was placed onto Route 18 itself to compensate.

Generation IV

Aside from the groups of trees being in slightly different locations, Generation IV is very similar to the route in Generations I and III.

In the anime

The Pokémon Ninja School on Route 18 in the anime

‎Route 18 first appeared at the beginning of The Bridge Bike Gang, where Ash and his friends entered the Cycling Road on their way to Sunnytown.

The route reappeared in From Cradle to Save, where it was the location of the Pokémon Ninja School. It was also here where Brock first encountered and eventually caught a Bonsly.
