Route 18       Route 20

Route 19 (Japanese: 19番水道 Water Route 19), known as Sea Route 19 in Generation I and on a signpost in FireRed and LeafGreen, is a water route located in southern Kanto. It connects Fuchsia City in the north to Route 20 in the south.

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, Route 19 is initially blocked off by giant boulders sent there by a volcanic eruption on Cinnabar Island. The route will be cleared as soon as the player has visited the route for the first time via Route 20, as well as having earned the Volcano Badge in Generation IV.

Route description

Heading south from Fuchsia City, Route 19 becomes a dual carriageway, as a series of ledges and a rock wall separate the route into a southbound-only west half and a dual-direction east half. After three ledges, the rock wall ends and the route is reunited on an unnamed beach. In Generation I, FireRed and LeafGreen, and Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, two Swimmers patrol the beach for Trainers to battle. Just south of the Swimmers is the Route 19 signpost, located on the shore of the ocean.

Route 19 turns west at its southern terminus, becoming Route 20.

Differences among generations

 
Route 19 in Yellow
 
Route 19 blocked off in Gold, Silver, and Crystal

Each generation has added their own signature touch to Route 19, each time maintaining the essence of the route.

Generation I

In Pokémon Yellow, the Summer Beach House (Japanese: うみのいえ Sea House) was placed on the beach below Fuchsia City. Inside, a man known as the Surfin' Dude (Japanese: なみのりオヤジ Surfing Old Man) allows Trainers to partake in a minigame called Pikachu's Beach if the player has a Surfing Pikachu (Game Boy) or the starter Pikachu (Virtual Console). The surfer, as well as the Surfing Pikachu premise, mirror that of the anime episode The Pi-Kahuna.

Generation II

When Trainers first approach Route 19 from the eastern terminus, the land portion of the route is under construction for renovations. After entering Route 19 from the west, the construction will be completed.

The ocean part of the route was shrunken by approximately 50%; lastly, a gate was added between Fuchsia City and the beach.

Generation III

All aspects of the route were restyled in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, as the rock columns that bordered the route in the first two generations were replaced by a series of prototypical rock formations. Also, the beaches were given a rounded look to enhance their appearance.

Generation IV

The route was completely restyled in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. The row of rocks lining the series of cliffs has been removed and many rocks have been strewn around the beach and the sea. The beach itself is also much thinner, with the fences and rocks removed. The ocean area remains roughly the same size as in Generation II, although an island is added in the southeast corner. Like in Generation II, there is a gate separating the beach and Fuchsia City. The gate will be removed once the player reaches Route 19 from Route 20.

In the manga

Pokémon Adventures

Red, Green & Blue chapter

Route 19 made an appearance in What a Dragonite, where Red was attacked by a wild Dragonite while looking for the HM03 (Surf). Although he managed to find the HM, it was broken by one of Dragonite's attacks. He was rescued from drowning by what he thought was a mermaid, but was actually Misty. Since the HM had been destroyed, Misty offered to trade Red her Gyarados in exchange for his Krabby, since Gyarados already knew Surf.
