Route 23 (Japanese: 23番道路 Route 23) is the final numbered route in Unova. It is located in northeastern Unova and connects the Giant Chasm to Victory Road. It can only be accessed after the player has defeated Ghetsis in the Giant Chasm's deepest part.

Route description

Route 23 connects Victory Road with the Giant Chasm. It is a mountain-like road, with many mountainous features, such as ponds and crevasses. The northwest portion of the route features a puzzle involving Strength and Cut. There are narrow paths between trees and raised platforms, making it hard to navigate and find the right path.

After seeing it in the Cave of Being, Azelf can be found on the raised platform north of the area with the Strength rock puzzle.
