Sinnoh Route 212
２１２番道路 Route 212
A tall, sturdy wall surrounds an expansive estate that takes up nearly half of the road space. Beyond the wall, one can see the stately Pokémon Mansion and the owner's prized garden behind it. This path weaves among deep puddles made by the unending rainfall. It is wet and miserable for Trainers. There is a house here whose residents offer to trade TMs for Red, Blue, Yellow, or Green Shards.DP There is a house here whose residents offer tutor moves to your Pokémon for Red, Blue, Yellow, or Green Shards.Pt
Most of this route is raining, much like Route 119 in Generation III. Near the eastern end of the route is a house that has different people depending on the version. In Diamond and Pearl, there is a woman who used to work in Hoenn's Weather Institute who will trade TMs for weather-changing moves for shards, while in Platinum one of the three move tutors in this location, offering to tutor moves in exchange for shards. The route is also full of narrow paths suspended in the air. To get across them, the player has to ride a Bicycle over the narrow path. As the route approaches Pastoria City, the player may get stuck in the marshy areas.

The north-south then east-west directional layout of Route 212 is somewhat similar to Hoenn Routes 120 and 121.
Occasionally, the southern end of Route 212 will experience a thunderstorm rather than just rain.
This is similar to Route 119's weather, though Route 119 is on a four-day cycle whereas Route 212 is not.
This is the longest route in Sinnoh, being seven blocks large on the Town Map. This is only if Seabreak Path is not considered a route, as it is eight blocks long.
The south section of Route 212 will not have rain on May 1 in Diamond and Pearl, although it will still be raining in Platinum.
