Route Updates

We hope that Trainers are enjoying Routes and exploring their surroundings in brand new ways!

We’ve continued to make improvements to this feature since its launch. Here are some of the updates Trainers can enjoy right now!

  • Increased Route availability across the globe.
  • A lower level requirement for Trainers to create Routes.
  • Several quality of life improvements, including seeing more Routes listed in the Nearby menu, directional arrows on Routes, and a running count of the Zygarde Cells you’ve collected in the Zygarde Cube details.

In the future, Trainers can expect Routes to continue springing up around the world as more are approved. In addition, you can look forward to the following changes.

  • More Trainers will be able to create Routes.
  • Trainers will be able to find Zygarde Cells more often while exploring Routes.
  • A new notification will be available to inform Trainers when there are Routes nearby.
  • Various quality of life improvements.

We’re excited for all that’s to come—and who knows what’s on the horizon?
