The road joining Veilstone City and a lake is described as either "wildly natural" or simply "a mess." There is a cave hewn into the sheer rock wall at the roadside. The hole was made by a Ruin Maniac.Pt

Route 214 in Pokémon Adventures
Route 214 first appeared in Yikes, Yanmega! II, where Pearl was seen biking through the route with Rad Rickshaw. While traveling, Pearl asked Rad Rickshaw about the statue in Eterna City, and Rickshaw told him about the plates that had been attached to the statue while he was still a child but had since then been lost, describing Dialga and Palkia. He also revealed that it was because of his knowledge of the legend written on these plates why Team Galactic had kidnapped him earlier.
The route appeared again in Cleaning Up Grimer and Halting Honchkrow, where Pearl was forced to fight his way through the masses of Team Galactic Grunts stationed on along the route on his way to Veilstone City to save Azelf from Team Galactic's headquarters. Unfortunately, the gate to Veilstone City was heavily guarded, and Pearl, knowing that he would only tire himself of battling even if he managed to break through the guards, was stuck in a nearby cave. Thankfully, he then encountered Grumpy and Flaky, a pair of Unown he and Diamond had befriended earlier at the Solaceon Ruins. He soon came to realize that the Galactic Bomb that Team Galactic had exploded at Lake Valor two days earlier had created the cave he was in, connecting the Solaceon Ruins to Route 214. Grumpy and Flaky then summoned swarms of their fellow Unown to help Pearl, and beat the Grunts blocking the gate with a barrage of Hidden Powers, allowing Pearl to plow through them and enter Veilstone City.
