Routes in Pokémon GO: Your Guide to Blaze New Trails

If you thought Pokémon GO was all about catching Pokémon and battling it out at Gyms, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Pokémon GO is bringing you an all-new feature called Routes, introduced alongside the Blaze New Trails event. Here’s what you need to know about Routes and the bonuses you can earn as you explore them.

What are Routes in Pokémon GO?

Have you ever wanted to share your favorite Pokémon-catching trails with others? Now you can, with the introduction of Routes in Pokémon GO. Routes are custom paths, created by Trainers like yourself, which highlight fun trails and intriguing sights in the real world. These can range from a beautiful park teeming with Bug-type Pokémon to a bustling downtown area where Electric-type Pokémon thrive.

How to Create a Route in Pokémon GO

Creating your own Route is simple. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Choose a PokéStop or Gym as your starting point.
  2. Hit the record button to begin mapping out your Route.
  3. Fill out the information about your Route, then submit it for review.
  4. Once it’s accepted, your Route will be available for other Trainers to follow!

Your Routes need to be reviewed before they can be implemented in the game, so ensure you’ve detailed your Route thoroughly before submitting it.

How to Explore Routes in Pokémon GO

Exploring Routes created by other Trainers is as easy as creating one. Follow these steps:

  1. Check the new Routes tab on the Nearby menu to see local Routes.
  2. Choose a Route that piques your interest.
  3. Follow the Route and enjoy exploring!

The Nearby menu, where you usually find Pokémon and Raids, now includes Routes. It’s your go-to spot to discover new Trails curated by fellow Trainers.

As we step into the Blaze New Trails event, the world of Pokémon GO is expanding. Join us as we discover new paths, share our own favorite spots, and continue our journey to become the very best Pokémon Trainers. Happy exploring!
