Kanto Route 2 Map

Map of Route 2

Located in Kanto, Route 2 is a connecting route for Viridian City and Pewter City. In addition, Viridian Forest can be entered from here, and the entrance of Diglett's Cave which leads to Route 11 also lies in this route. In order to access Diglett's Cave from this route, the HM Cut is required.

HM Flash can be acquired here from Prof. Oak's Aid in the second building directly south from the entrance of Diglett's Cave, under the condition that at least 10 different species of Pokémon are caught (To see if condition is met, press 'P' to open Pokédex and look under the heading 'Pokédex data' in the upper left corner).
