Route 4 is a short path in northern Kanto that connects Cerulean City to the eastern exit of Mt. Moon.

Description

Route 4 is surrounded by Mt. Moon on the northern and western side and forms several contours. Several ledges can be found on different areas of the route, and a large patch of grass, surrounded by several trees can be found on the southeastern part. A body of water is located in the eastern part of the route.

In Generation I and Generation III, a man can be found in the Pokémon Center on the western segment of the route, who sells Magikarp of Lvl. 5 for Pokedollar500. In the eastern segment, there are two Move Tutors who will teach one of your Pokémon the moves Mega Kick and Mega Punch respectively.
