Route 14 (Japanese: １４番道路Route 14) is a route in northern Kalos, connecting Lumiose City and Laverre City. The route is also known as Laverre Nature Trail (Japanese: クノエの林道Kunoe Forest Path). It is home to the scary house, associated with a haunted tale.
The route starts off with a little playground with some swings and a slide. North of the playground is a swampy route.
Places of interest
The scary house is a small residence situated in the northern section of the route with a lone man. When the player first arrives at the house with Shauna, Tierno, and Trevor, the man will retell a haunted story.
"It was a dark and stormy night many years ago. Lost, I arrived at this house and went inside. The lights would not turn on, so I fearfully looked around the house. Eventually, I made my way into the kitchen. There was no sign of anyone being there... I found the fridge, and when I opened it, a faint light leaked out. I could finally make out my surroundings. And I saw the faint outline of a man huddling in the corner of the room. I tried to tell him that I was lost and I was hoping he'd let me stay until morning, but when I approached him... The man suddenly screamed, "Stay back!" I apologized and continued to plead my case. "Please, can't you help me?" "I'm not talking to you!" he shouted. I looked at the man in surprise. When I did this, the man asked me... "Can't you see them? Behind you!"
"A horde of faceless men!""
The man will continue to ask for a tip, but the outcome of any option chosen is relatively the same.
Ash and his friends, along with Goodra, arrived on Route 14 in Defending the Homeland!, where they met Keanan, the warden who oversees Goodra's homeland. There, they discovered the commander behind the attack is a Blue FlowerFlorges. However, they learned that Florges wanted the spring water to heal her sick child, a Blue FlowerFloette. After saving Goodra's homeland from the Team Rocket trio, Goodra and Florges worked together to restore it and heal Floette. Once all is said and done, Ash decided to release his Goodra so it can stay with its friends and act as their official guardian.
The scary house appeared in Scary Hospitality!. Unlike in the games, this house was actually haunted by the spirit of Lon, along with his Ghost-type friends, Gastly, Haunter, and Gengar. A small playground with some swings and a slide were also featured, much like the route in the games.
The following Pokémon reside in Goodra's homeland.
In English, the Hex Maniac that gives the player TM06 (Toxic) states, "The move Toxic, which Poison-type Pokémon use, always hits." This line was mistranslated, as in the original Japanese, she states, "When Poison-type Pokémon use Toxic, it always hits."
