Victory Road (Japanese: チャンピオンロードChampion Road) is the final journey one must take before facing the Elite Four.
Victory Road can be accessed via Route 10 to the immediate south. Ascending the area requires traversing both inside and outside of a steep hill. The player can slide down the hillsides to access different portions of the cave and progress further. After defeating Team Plasma at N's Castle and talking to Cheren on Route 5, he will stay here, where he can be rematched once a day. He can be found in the uppermost cave section, right before the exit to the Pokémon League.
The Victory Road of Unova is like a mountain with various floors. The mountain side is built like a triangle, going up floors the higher the player gets to the apex of the triangle, the path to the Pokémon League. The player can slide down cliffs to go down floors, but cannot go back up those cliffs, similar to ledges. It is sparsely covered in trees. There are various cave entrances and bridges which the player can use to get to different parts of the mountainside.
There are rough patches on the mountainside where wild Pokémon can be encountered. Dig and the Escape Rope can only be used inside cave areas; using either transports the player back to the front of the Pokémon League, or the base of Victory Road, depending on where the player entered from.
All wild encounters here use the special wild encounter theme, the one used if the Pokémon were encountered via a phenomenon or the battle is a wild Double Battle.
If the player enters the area from the Pokémon League and uses Dig or an Escape Rope, they will be teleported to the point in the Pokémon League where they left the area. If the player entered by Fly or came through the Badge Check Gates, they will be teleported to the Fly point (just after the Badge Check Gates). This is due to the fact that the outside is part of the maze, and would be difficult to escape otherwise.
