A narrow route linking Quasar and Ion towns. Route 23 leads into the heart of the Epoch Rainforest. Tall, branching oaks, ferns, vines, moss and lichen are common here and the air is thick and humid. The forest is misty and damp, especially during the warmer months. Leaf-litter covers the ground and Bug Pokemon are found everywhere, particularly at night. The forest is rich with the smells of rain and rotting wood. The steady dripping of water and the gurgle of streams can be heard from the path.
