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).

Route description

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.

A rural area on Route 5, as seen in Kindergarten Chaos!
 
The abandoned mansion featured in Seeking Shelter from the Storm!

Ash and his friends traveled along Route 5 inThe Bamboozling Forest! before arriving in Camphrier Town in Awakening the Sleeping Giant!. The Route is mostly forested. A kindergarten is located on Route 5, as shown in Kindergarten Chaos!.

In The Bamboozling Forest!, the group and Team Rocket encountered a pair of food stealing Pancham, who they later helped their leader Pangoro. Jessie also caught her Pumpkaboo in the same bamboo forest.

The group disrupted Pokémon smuggler Dolan's Vivillon poaching operation in To Catch a Pokémon Smuggler!. Officer Jenny later placed Dolan under arrest while the Vivillon flew away into the sunset.

In Seeking Shelter from the Storm!, the group and Team Rocket sought shelter into a seemingly abandoned mansion during a storm. Following a series of eerie coincidences, it was discovered a lonely Espurr, who was a friend of the mansion's former owner, Lacy, had been waiting for Lacy's return. Lacy's granddaughter Elise later arrived, revealing that Lacy had since passed away. Elise planned to renovate the old mansion and invited Espurr to live with her.

X & Y chapter

Route 5 first appeared in Corphish Pinches, where X, Y, and their friends stopped at the skate park outside Lumiose City. While doing some skating tricks, Tierno accidentally bumped into a Team Flare Admin, finding out about Team Flare's plan to take over the Poké Ball Factory. Although the Admin tried to silence the group, X and Tierno were able to use teamwork to defeat the Admin and her Flygon.

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 in PS567 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.

Trivia

  • Youngster Keita asks the player before battle if they want 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.
