Kalos Route 3Edit

Kalos Route 3 is seen at the first trailer. If you look at the first trailer and the screenshots from the official website you can see that this Route looks different from the first trailer, for example having more trees and more detailed plants, rocks, etc. This may be because they are still working on the designs of the overworld. It is most likely the third route of the Kalos region. This Route connects Santalune Forest with Santalune City.

Kalos Route 4Edit

This route connects Santalune City to Lumiose City. This route introduces the player to pokemon hidden in flowers, such as Flabebe.

Kalos Route 5Edit

Kalos Route 5 is briefly seen at the second gameplay trailer, where the player is in Lumiose City with a building having a 5 at the entrance in the background, in other words the Gate between the route and the city. Or it could simply be a building with a 5 on the entrance.
