Route 8 (Japanese: 8番道路 Route 8) is a route in northwestern Unova, connecting Icirrus City to the Tubeline Bridge. Moor of Icirrus lies to the north and is accessible through this route. In Pokémon Black and White, Bianca is found here near the entrance of Tubeline Bridge.

Route description

 
Route 8 in the winter in Black and White

Route 8 is a route with many water puddles due to excessive amounts of rainy days. Pokémon hide in the damp ground. The puddles freeze over in winter. The route is accessible by a path to the east of Icirrus City. To the north of the first path is a small lake that can be surfed on, with tree stumps and a log in the middle which can not be crossed. After passing the lake, the route splits into two paths. The southern path leads to another small lake, and Tubeline Bridge. There is a Parasol Lady near the bridge's entrance who hands out weather condition boosting rocks based on the time of day and has a habit of speaking in rock puns. For example, she says "I'll be here, I pumice". The northern path leads to the Moor of Icirrus.

In Black and White, the entrance to the Tubeline Bridge from this route is blocked by two Team Plasma Grunts. They will only disperse once the player obtains the Light StoneB/Dark StoneW. Once they have dispersed, Bianca will meet the player at this position for a battle.

Trivia

  • Parasol Lady Melita will talk about having heard the player coming just by listening to their splashes in the puddles, even in winter when the water puddles would be frozen. Seasonal changes cause similar confusion in Icirrus City.
