Route 14 is a cavern route that connects Fluoruma City to Route 15. In order to progress, the player has to obtain the Harvest Badge and a Pokémon with HM8 Rock Climb. This route is divided into 2 parts — the first part features the abandoned ruins of an old city destroyed by the "Crystal Beast", attracting many tourists and historians from all over Roria, while the second part is a partly frozen cave leading to Route 15.

Notable Events

Catching Crystal Onix

The houses and the city in this route were destroyed by a crystal Pokémon at least a century ago. The beast was dormant for a long time, but it is reported to have reawakened and attacked some miners on this route. The true identity of this beast is the Crystal Onix from the Pokémon Anime, and it has an encounter rate of 1/1600 (0.0625%), surpassing Roaming Pokémon to be the rarest Wild Pokémon in-game until the opening of Bob's Magik Pond in Cosmeos Valley with the introduction of the Rayquaza Magikarp. It is also a "Shiny-locked" Pokémon in-game, meaning that there is no Shiny version of Crystal Onix.

The Three Protectors and the Titan

When the Crystal Beast went on a rampage and destroyed the city more than a century ago on Route 14, the citizens called upon the 3 Protectors to wake up the Titan, which had always protected the people. A great match commenced between the Crystal Beast and the Titan. Eventually, the Crystal Beast was defeated and was forced to flee. While the people relocated to Fluoruma City, the Titan returned to its slumber. A door is seen around the top of Route 14 ruins, with "The Three Protectors will awaken the Titan" written on it. Catching and having the first 3 of the Legendary Titans — Regirock, Registeel and Regice, present in party will open the door, thus allowing access to Titans' Throng, where the final Titan Regigigas awaits the player... or does it?


At the end of the route, some Eclipse Members are found trying to recruit Rival Tess, but she refuses to join the evil organization. The player arrives at the scene and defeats the 2 Grunts, but all of a sudden, the masked Eclipse Admin starts talking about reuniting with Tess and the player, revealing himself to be ...!


Note: Rarity levels are estimations according to this scale and might be subject to changes due to different encounter assessment results, unless supported by official encounter rates, which are listed in red under the rarity level if known. If there are any Pokémon with low catch rates, the possibility to flee or requirement of gaining happiness to evolve, recommended Poké Balls for that Pokémon will be shown with the corresponding bag sprite under the Pokémon's name.

  • Since Beldum is as difficult to catch as many Legendary and Mythical Pokémon, it is recommended to stock up on Dusk Balls bought in Poké Ball Emporium beforehand in order to successfully catch one.
    • Also, it is worth noting that Beldum's only move is Take Down, which causes recoil damage. Therefore, players are recommended to use a Ghost-type Pokémon in order to prevent it from knocking itself out.
  • The Crystal Onix was originally from the Pokémon Anime, where it made its only appearance in the 87th episode of the second season.
  • Punk Guy Nathaniel's team gives more than 6500 EXP Points in total upon defeat, surpassing Camper Henry on Route 12 and Adventurer Jesper in Cragonos Mines to be the best EXP grinding spot so far.
