Unova Route 10
10番道路 10 Bandōro
|Connecting locations:||↓ South - Opelucid City|
↗Northeast - Victory Road
|← Route 9-•-Route 10 -•-Route 11 →|
Route 10 is the roadway connecting Opelucid City to the infamous Victory Road. It's a rugged forest area and two wooden bridges have been built across a gushing river, which flows from the east of the route towards the south. At the eastern end of the path you'll find the Badge Check Gates.
Cheren and Bianca will appear when you've crossed the first bridge. Guessing that you're on your way to the Pokémon League, Cheren challenges you to test your skill. Once he's beaten, Bianca hands you a Max Revive. Both of them share words of encouragement before leaving, with Bianca doing so in her usual awkward manner.
There are eight Badge Check Gates; one for each Badge you can earn, and the guards won't allow you to pass without the necessary Badge. The appearance of the Gate areas correspond to the Badge's Gym. For example, the Trio Gate has tables and chairs, in a reference to the Striaton City Gym's restaurant area; and the Insect Gate has a stairway carved into a large bug statue.
Once you've passed all the checks, you now only have one final test standing between you and entering the Pokémon League: Victory Road.
In Pokemon Black and White 2, Victory Road slopesides experiences a landslide and cave in, causing the Badge Check Gates to relocate to Route 23. As a precaution, Route 10 is blocked off and sealed. Also, the gate connecting Opelucid City and the route is removed.
