Route 23

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon FireRed
Last Updated:


After obtaining all eight Pokemon Gym Badges and defeating your Rival once again on Route 22, you will be able to proceed past the Gym Badge Checkpoints towards Route 23. This is a very long path full of Wild Pokemon, one that will lead you towards Indigo Plateau (where the Pokemon League is found). Victory Road, a cave full of some of the toughest Pokemon Trainers in the Kanto Region, is also found within the middle of Route 23.
