Route 10       Route 12

Route 11 (Japanese: 11ばんどうろ Route 11) is a route in south-eastern Kanto, connecting Vermilion City and Route 12. The southern entrance to Diglett's Cave is located at the route's western end.

Route description

From its junction with Route 12, Route 11 passes over a short bridge before heading west through a clearing in the forest that lines the west side of Route 12. The route becomes more built-up as it approaches a gate, becoming fenced on each side. This station is seen by some as the eastern terminus of Route 11.

Inside of the station in Generation I and Generation III, Trainers who have collected data on 30 or more Pokémon species in their Pokédex will be able to obtain the Itemfinder from one of Professor Oak's aides. Also, in Generation III, a Trainer will trade a Nidorina or a Nidorino for the Pokémon of the opposite gender. The Pokémon requested varies by version. In Generation II, the gate has been torn down.

West of the station, the route is completely surrounded by grass patches. To avoid encounters with wild Pokémon, Trainers can follow beaten dirt paths through the field. The first such path begins just west of the gate. The path turns south before resuming a westward alignment and turning north to intersect a short path that travels to the west. The main path continues north, then west to come to a near four-way intersection. The north and south paths ultimately lead to a dead end surrounded by grass while the west path continues toward Vermilion.

Several paces west of the four-way intersection is another three-way junction. The two routes, which isolate a small patch of grass from the rest of the route, rejoin east of Diglett's Cave. In Generation I and Generation III, the route runs along the north bank of a narrow channel as it meets the southern portal of Diglett's Cave and enters Vermilion. In Generation II, however, the junction that rejoins the two routes is located just east of the Vermilion City limits. The river is also non-existent and Diglett's Cave actually emerges in east Vermilion.

In Generation IV, the south-western exit leads to Vermilion City's eastern harbor.

Differences among generations

Generations I and III

At the east end of Route 11 is a sleeping Snorlax, blocking not only Route 11 but also Route 12. To move it, a Trainer must play the Poké Flute to awaken the Pokémon.

Generation II

In the most noticeable change, the number of Trainers on the route had been cut from ten to four. Just as noticeable is the removal of the gate on the east end of Route 11 and the moving of Diglett's Cave from Route 11 to Vermilion City.

Generation IV

The layout of the route is different to previous generations. The Snorlax blocking the intersection between Routes 11 and 12 has been moved to the front of Diglett's Cave (which is now part of the route again instead of Vermilion as in Generation II). The method of moving Snorlax is the same as the Generation II games. A new hill is added in the west, before the entrance to Vermilion City. The road that goes through the tall grass is designed differently. The gate is present unlike Generation II. Fences are added as well a new section at the southwest that leads to a new part of Vermilion. A signpost is added near the gate and the Berry tree, now replaced by an Apricorn tree containing a Grn Apricorn, has moved to the center of the route. Most of the trees placed in this route are backwards, as well as several other textures, compared to other locations.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

It made its debut appearance in Wake Up-You're Snorlax in the Red, Green & Blue chapter, where a bike race sponsored by Miracle Cycle was held with an announcer. The race starts and Route 11 through Route 12 and to the finishing line on Route 11.

The first hurdle was at a narrow bridge guarded by Tentacruel which a male Swimmer used his Slowpoke to get across the river, whilst Red used his Poliwrath's Ice Beam to get across.

Next Red took a shortcut through a forest on Route 11. Though a Bug Catcher and his Scyther used a bug repellent to get through, Red used his Pikachu's Thunder Shock and Bulbasaur's Razor Leaf to get through, getting a Beedrill's nest on Bulbasaur's head and getting stung several times.

After getting through the Snorlax on Route 12 which Red later captures, he spends all the winning money and food on feeding Snorlax.

Pokémon

There was an abundance of different Pokémon on Route 11.
