Route 126 (Japanese: 126番水道 Water Route 126) is a water route in eastern Hoenn, connecting Route 124, Route 127, and Secret IsletORAS. The route encircles Sootopolis City, a city built in the interior of an inactive volcanic islandRSE/meteorite impact craterORAS.

Route description

Heading clockwise from the northernmost point on the route, Route 126 proceeds east, meeting the southern terminus of Route 124 after a short distance. Southeast of this point, the route intersects a channel that leads to Route 127. Directly west of the middle of the channel is a Swimmer, one of three on the route. To the southwest, near the base of the volcano, is the second Swimmer. The third Swimmer is in the westernmost area of the route, accessible only by utilizing the network of underwater pathways.

An additional five Trainers were added to the route in Pokémon Emerald.

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Mirage spot Nameless Cavern can be seen in the northeast of the route.

Underwater

Unlike Route 124, which had only small pools of deep water scattered throughout the route, most of Route 126 is deep enough to Dive into, including the area surrounding the volcano base. On the ocean floor, Trainers can pass through seaweed to catch wild Pokémon as well as enter Sootopolis City, the entrance of which is located on the southern side of the volcano on the ocean floor.
