Pokémon: Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl

Route 222 (Encounters & Items)

Vincent Lau

This is a walkthrough for Route 222, including what Pokémon you can encounter and items you can find.

(1 of 2) Route 222.

Route 222. (left), Head due east from Valor Lakefront to reach here. (right)

After the big showdown at the Spear Pillar, the NPC blocking the east exit of Valor Lakefront will be gone. Now nothing can stop you heading into Route 222, en route to Sunyshore City.

Route 222 itself is a relatively short horizontal route, divided into two paths: The upper path features a dirt path that transitions into a road, while the lower path cuts through a sandy beach.

Both paths are occupied by trainers, but there aren’t too many of them. All in all, it should be an easy ride compared to your dealings with Team Galactic. Use this chance to get some last minute training for the final gym.
