Route 2 (Japanese: 2番道路 Route 2) is a route in southern Galar that extends northeast from Wedgehurst. Professor Magnolia's house is located at its terminus.

Role

When the player first visits the route, Leon offers to teach the player and Hop how to catch Pokémon. However, if the player has already caught a Pokémon, he will assume they already know how. (This requires the player to use one of the five Poké Balls given by Mum with no prompt, as no other Poké Balls can be obtained before this point.)

At Professor Magnolia's house, Hop asks the Professor to convince Leon to endorse him and the player for the Gym Challenge. Leon agrees to endorse the two if they have a battle that'll impress him. Leon then fully heals the player's team. At this point, the player may pick up items from around the Professor's house, but cannot leave the front yard area until they battle Hop outside the house. Regardless of the outcome, Leon agrees to endorse both of them. Soon after, two Wishing Stars fall from the sky, and by the next morning, Professor Magnolia has fit each of them into a Dynamax Band, which she gives to the player and Hop. The player's team is again fully healed overnight.

Before the player returns to Wedgehurst, Hop explains to the player how to move slowly in grass to avoid wild Pokémon's attention, and how to whistle with the Left Control Stick to catch their attention.

Route description

The main section of Route 2 leads over a stone bridge and down a gentle, grassy hillside to Professor Magnolia's house. West of the Professor's house lies a big lake, which can be crossed with an upgraded Rotom Bike. In the middle of the lake is an island, and at the northwest corner of the lake is a short, dead-end path, which contains wild Pokémon on higher levels than the main part of the route, as well as TM69 (Psycho Cut). In the south, the lake also connects to a river, which can be traversed all the way down to the stone bridge at the route entrance
