Route 10 is a short route in northeastern Kanto that is cut in half by Rock Tunnel. The northern half has the tall grass and river with Wild Pokemon. The southern half has the majority of Pokemon Trainers, though not all. Route 10 also has a Pokemon Center to rest at before you enter Rock Tunnel. A Super Potion can be grabbed next to the patch of tall grass, and a Lure is slightly hidden above Rock Tunnel’s entrance.

The first time you walk towards the Pokemon Center, Team Rocket will group around you. Take one on in a Pokemon battle while this mysterious woman fights the other.
