'''Route 9''' (Japanese: '''9{{tt|番道路|ばんどうろ}}''' ''Route 9'') is a route in eastern [[Kanto]], connecting [[Cerulean City]] and {{rt|10|Kanto}}.
 
==Route description==
Heading east from Cerulean, the route quickly utilizes the rocky terrain of the area, hopping down a [[ledge]] and passing a Trainer, making this portion of the route a one way, eastbound only passage. Turning east, the route passes an opening to the south that leads to another Trainer and {{TM|30|Teleport}} in [[Generation I]], or {{TM|40|Aerial Ace}} in [[Generation III]]. Moving away from the passage, Route 9 comes to a four-way intersection. To the north is the one way, westbound only passage that returns to Cerulean and is occupied by two Trainers and a grassy area containing [[wild Pokémon]]. To the south is a long passage that ultimately results in a dead end, containing one Trainer and a {{DL|Status condition healing item|Burn Heal}} in Generation III. The main path of Route 9 takes the east fork.
 
To the east of two hills connected by ledges, the route turns north into the path of another Trainer. The route also comes to a three-way intersection here, with a fork to the west leading to yet another Trainer and a small patch of grass. Route 9 continues northward, turning east, passing another Trainer and turning south to the northeast of another small hill. After hopping another ledge that makes the passage east of the four-way intersection a one way, eastbound only path (and which utilizes the dead end passage, which is bordered to its north by a ledge for most of its length, as the westbound only path), the path crosses ways with another Trainer as it turns east.
Just east of the Trainer is a pair of ledges that allow Trainers heading west from the [[Rock Tunnel]] to reach the four-way intersection that ultimately leads to Cerulean. Farther east, the route comes to an end at the western extent of a large grassy area, at which the path becomes Route 10.
 
In [[GenerationGenerations I]], III, and {{gen|VII}}, to get to [[Lavender Town]] and [[Celadon City]], the main{{player}} character would have tomust travel the length ofthrough the route to reach the [[Rock Tunnel]] on {{rt|10|Kanto}}.

==Differences among generations==
 
===Generation IV===
[[File:Barricade and fence comparison.png|thumb|right|200px250px|The fence and the tree barricade.]]
Many changes are made in this route. The cuttable tree is removed, the tall grass in the west side is slightly moved to the south, the shape of the same grass is also different, the [[ledge]] north of the [[signpost]] is removed, as a new ledge is added near the center grass, and a hill is added to the route to give it a more in-depth feel. South of the east tall grass, a new fence with four cuttable trees is added replacing the ledge north of the Poké Center, one of these trees not being necessary to pass through the grass. Like in Gold, Silver and Crystal, the corner between it and Route 10 belonged to this route; however, this time the Rock Tunnel entrance is not placed in the route.
 
For decorative purposes, rocks are added in some hills, as are the flowers near the Pokémon Center and two more hills in the east river. This river is not a dead end to the north like in previous generations; this time the water goes north, but it's still impossible to advance due to rocks blocking the way. The west-to-east part of the river is significantly shortened. Also, the trees in the west entrance are replaced by an extension of the south hill. The fence with the trees mentioned above is very similar to the tree barricade between the Pokémon Center and the [[Rock Tunnel]] in Route 10 in Generations {{gen|I}} and {{gen|III}}.
 
==In the manga==
[[File:Kanto Route 9 Adventures.png|thumb|100px|Route 9 in Pokémon Adventures]]
===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
Route 9 was featured from ''[[PS053|Can't Catch Caterpie!]]'' to ''[[PS055|The Primeape Directive]]'', where {{adv|Blue}} and {{adv|Yellow}} trained at the mountainous areas of the route in preparation for the upcoming {{pkmn|battle}} against the [[Elite Four]]. Soon after arriving at the mountains, Yellow encountered a {{p|Caterpie}}, which had followed her all the way from [[Celadon City]]. Following Blue's instructions, she eventually caught it and added it to her [[party|team]], nicknaming it [[Kitty]]. As a result for her battles against Caterpie while trying to catch it, Yellow's {{p|Rattata}}, [[Ratty]], evolved into a {{p|Raticate}}, much to Yellow's shock, since she hadn't been aware that Pokémon could [[Evolution|evolve]].
 
After training together for a while, Blue and Yellow went on their separate ways by sea. Since Yellow didn't have a Pokémon that could {{m|Surf}} yet, she instead boarded the bypassing [[S.S. Anne]] to [[Vermilion City]].
 
In [[Pokémon Adventures]], the industrial waste from the unfinished {{FB|Kanto|Power Plant}} to the south has spread all the way to this route, causing erosion and killing off most of the local plant life. This has also affected the food resources of the Pokémon living in the area, including a pack of {{p|Mankey}}, forcing them to travel far and wide in search for anything to eat.

==Trivia==
* In {{game|Yellow}}, close to where the player enters Route 9 from Cerulean City, there is a {{tc|Youngster}} with a Sandshrew. After defeating him he says he will have to start his "100-match winning streak" again; implying that this Trainer is [[A.J.]] from ''[[EP008|The Path to the Pokémon League]]'', who succeeded in the 100-match win streak with his Sandshrew. However, in the {{pkmn|anime}}, {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} met A.J. on {{rt|6|Kanto}}.
