ROUTE 12 Requirements: Surf and Waterfall are required to travel on Route 12. Travel time: 48 hours.
Route 12 is a rough water route beginning near Polaris City and finishing in Orion City at the base of Mt. Eon. A huge waterfall can be found in the center of the route and a Pokemon with HM Waterfall is required to traverse it. The freezing water trickles down from the snow-capped Mt. Eon and pools in a crater near Polaris City before tumbling down the side of the mountain. In winter, Route 12 is the only way to access Polaris City as Route 11 becomes blocked by snow and ice.
