Victory Road (Japanese: チャンピオンロードChampion Road) is a tunnel situated on Route 23. It earned its name because it must be traveled by all Trainers aiming for the top. Its other end opens up in Indigo Plateau and the Pokémon League. Only Trainers with the eight Kanto or JohtoBadges are allowed to enter it.
In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, an Officer Jenny is present of 2F, healing the player's Pokémon if talked to.
In some promotional artwork for Generation II, Victory Road is depicted as being part of Mt. Silver, but this is not confirmed.
In Generations II and IV, there are no Trainers in Victory Road. According to Silver in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the reason for this is because he defeated them all.
In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, after entering the Hall of Fame and boarding the S.S. Aqua, the battle music in Victory Road (as well as in the Tohjo Falls, Routes 26, 27, and 28) changes from the Johto style to the Kanto style. This change was not present in Generation II.
Victory Road appeared briefly in File 4: Charizard, as Red was shown exiting it on his way to the Indigo Plateau. Later in the episode, Red was shown battling Moltres at the Victory Road with his Charizard, catching the Legendary bird soon after off-screen.
In Generations II and IV, Kanto Victory Road has the fewest Trainers of all Victory Roads, the only Trainer battle being against Silver.
In Generation I, if the player falls through the hole from 3F to 2F while riding their bike, they will be forced off the bike in the transition, but the bike music will keep playing.
