Route 47 (Japanese: 47ばんどうろ Route 47) is a route in western Johto, connecting Route 48 and Cianwood City via the Cliff Edge Gate. It only appears in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Route description

 
Crasher Wake on Route 47

Only accessible after the SecretPotion has been given to Jasmine in the Glitter Lighthouse, Route 47 is vastly different from all other routes in Johto, being carved out of the face of the sheer cliffs west of Cianwood.

The route begins rather high up as Trainers exit from Cliff Edge Gate, and heads due west past a Hiker, where it takes its first branch. From here, Trainers can go north two paces and into Cliff Cave, which connects the various levels of the route, or continue westward across a bridge in front of a roaring waterfall. There is very little across the bridge, however, as only a Camper appears, separating the player from a Revive.

Inside Cliff Cave, the player can either go up or down; each path contains its own perks. Going down and out from Cliff Cave leads the player to the sea, where they can explore, and with HM07 (Waterfall), climb to the only tall grass on the route.

Further west is another waterfall; climbing it will lead the player to a White Flute, otherwise obtainable only via transfer from Generation III or trading with Platinum.

The upper path will take travelers to Route 48 and Johto's brand-new Safari Zone; a Double Team waits to challenge any player exiting the Cliff Cave. Passage is free to the west, across several bridges over beautiful waterfalls, and eventually onto a grassy path near a billboard advertising the Safari Zone. North of here are the final Trainers on the route, a Young Couple, and a bit further north, Route 48.

Places of interest

Cliff Cave

Main article: Cliff Cave

Cliff Cave assists in navigating between the levels of Route 47; going up leads to Route 48, while going down leads to Embedded Tower and the only tall grass and surfable ocean on the route.

Embedded Tower

Main article: Embedded Tower

Accessible only with HM08 (Rock Climb), Embedded Tower is the whereabouts of KyogreHG, GroudonSS, or Rayquaza (if both are captured and shown to Professor Oak). West from the entrance to Embedded Tower is the westernmost accessible point in Johto, a small spit of beach at the bottom of climbable rocks.

Trainers with a telephone symbol by their names will give their Pokégear number to the player, and may call or be called for a rematch with higher-level Pokémon.


Trivia

  • Young Couple Duff & Eda have received a lot of attention in the Pokémon fandom, as their Pokémon of choice, Onix and Cloyster, are together considered to be an innuendo.
