Sinnoh water routes

In the article Route 220 it says: "Route 220 is one of the four water routes of the Sinnoh region". In this article it says they are five?! What is correct? PS: I need it for the german article. --Dario 20:48, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

There's technically four according to the game, which are in blue on the zoom-in map, while land routes are tan. In that sense, technically, yes, Route 219 doesn't count as a sea route, just the route leading to one. TTEchidna 01:50, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

So for Sinnoh we are going by the zoom in map? That really doesn't make any sense for me since Route 226 is more land then water, while Route 218 seems to be more water then land (it only has two small pieces of land at the end of the channel). Also, according to the zoom in map Route 213 is a water route.

For Sinnoh and the others, we technically go by whatever's named ばんすいどう ban suidō in the Japanese games, rather than ばんどうろ ban dōro. It's all translated as "Route X" in English, but early maps of Kanto in Gen I, including the RBY instruction manuals, refer to Routes 19, 20, and 21 as "Sea Route", much as they're 19 ban suidō, 20 ban suidō, and 21 ban suidō in Japan.

Move to "sea route" or keep at "water route"? TTEchidna 00:41, 9 August 2010 (UTC)


I don't think it should be moved, since not all water routes are sea routes. For example Route 122 is more like a giant lake. Raykyogrou0 (Talk) 10:29, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Well, Gen I and FRLG use "sea route" as the English translation, so I think it would be best to go with what is official. --SnorlaxMonster 12:44, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
