Route 36 (Japanese: 36ばんどうろ Route 36) is a route in central Johto connecting Route 37, Violet City, and National Park. The northern entrance to the Ruins of Alph is located at eastern end of the route. The route also contains a shortcut to Route 35.

Route description

Ecruteak-Violet

Heading south from Ecruteak, Route 36 is split in half by a series of trees. The western half proceeds south, passing a Trainer duo before merging with the eastern half southwest of a grass patch that blankets the southern portion of the eastern half. Now one route, Route 36 continues south, turning to the east and becoming extremely narrow as it meets the Route 35 connector path. At this junction, Trainers have encountered Sudowoodo several times, using a SquirtBottle to move the Pokémon. In the games, the SquirtBottle can only be obtained after the player has obtained the Plain Badge.

East of the junction, a man will give away the move Rock Smash in the form of TM08 in Generation II or HM06 in Generation IV, however in Generation II the Sudowoodo must first be cleared. To his northeast on Thursdays, Arthur of the Week Siblings will give Trainers a Hard Stone the first time they meet him, and a Careless Ribbon the second time and all others (Generation IV only). South of this point is the north entrance to the Ruins of Alph, which also has an entrance on Route 32.

The route continues due east before turning south as it arrives in the west side of Violet.

Route 35 connector

This path is an extension of Route 36 that links Route 36 to Route 35 and the National Park. Heading south from its northern terminus at the "Sudowoodo Junction," the route curves west, passing Schoolboy Alan and a grass patch before arriving at a T-intersection. To the north is another Trainer, an Ice Berry tree, and the east entrance to the National Park. To the south is Route 35 (however, without Cut, this path is a dead end).

Trainer Tips

Generation II

TRAINER TIPS
Pokémon stats vary—even within the same species. Their stats may be similar at first. However, differences will become pronounced as the Pokémon grow.

Generation IV

Trainer Tips
The same kind of Pokémon may look the same, but they can grow differently. Their strengths may look the same in the beginning, but those strengths can change as they grow.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter

Route 36 briefly appeared in All About Arceus II, where Gold and Bugsy traveled through the route while pursuing Arceus, eventually leading them to the Ruins of Alph.

Trivia

 
Route 36 in Crystal
  • In Pokémon Crystal, a small patch of grass was added to the route in the area north of the entrance to the Ruins of Alph, allowing the player to catch the Pokémon of this route on their first visit to Violet City. The levels of the wild Pokémon were adjusted for this earlier availability. This patch of grass is absent in Gold, Silver and their remakes.
