Route 5 (Japanese: ５番道路Route 5) is a route in central Kalos, connecting Lumiose City and Camphrier Town. The route is also known as Versant Road (Japanese: ベルサン通りVersant Road).
Near the Lumiose City gate, there is a skate park with grind rails leading out either side to areas exited using a ledge. This area is followed by a large path up the hill after a few patches of tall grass. A long grind rail on the top of the hill allows the player to get a shortcut back down. An Oran Berry tree is located at the end of the rail. At the top of the hill, there are several fields of purple flowers and another grind rail that leads over one of the flower patches. Near the entrance to Camphrier Town, there are two narrow paths that require Cut to be accessed.
In Fast-Thinking Froakie, the group encountered an Electrike, which tried to steal Y's clothes. X soon figured out that Electrike, which evolved into a Manectric on the spot, wanted their help in looking for something. They then encountered Clemont, who had recognized Y from a magazine and, having heard the conversation, offered his help to the group. X explained that Manectric was likely looking for its Mega Stone, which it had sensed being nearby. With the help of Clemont's Aipom Arm, they soon found the Manectite that Manectric had sensed, but also ran into a Team Flare Grunt, who was after Mega Stones himself. He swiped the Manectite and ran away, leaving the group to fight his four Espurr. While X and Trevor chased the Grunt to Parfum Palace, Y, Shauna, and Tierno stayed behind to fight the Espurr. During the fight, Clemont mentioned having seen Y's mother, Grace, at Cyllage City with a group of other Team Flare members the day before.
Having heard the commotion from his house in Camphrier Town, Cassius arrived at the scene and joined the fight, easily capturing all four Espurr with his Gourgeist. When Clemont, out of curiosity, tried to take a peek under the Espurr's ears, their usually constrained Psychic powers broke loose and sent him blasting away into the distance.
Youngster Keita asks the player before battle if he or she wants to know why he wears shorts when he walks in the tall grass. After being defeated, his answer is "Because they're comfy and easy to wear!", a reference to Youngster Ben from Route 3 in Kanto.
