Explore Virtual Reality Adventures with Pokémon GO: Exciting Routes and Experiences

Pokémon GO is a virtual reality mobile game developed and published by Niantic, Inc. Based on the popular Pokémon franchise, Pokémon GO combines the real world with the virtual world through virtual reality (AR) technology. Players of Pokémon GO use their mobile phones to walk in the real world and set off on an adventure to catch, train and battle Pokémon. The game uses GPS to locate the player and displays the corresponding Pokémon, PokeStops, and Gyms on a real-world map.

The player's main goal is to complete his Pokémon collection by catching different species of Pokémon. Players can participate in activities such as releasing Pokemon, wearing Pokemon from eggs, participating in community events, and battling other players at Gyms.

An interesting feature has appeared in the game Pokémon GO - Routes! Routes is a new mechanic that allows players to create and explore hiking trails established by other Pokémon Trainers in their local area. By participating in the routes, players can receive many attractive rewards, including experience (XP), the opportunity to earn more Buddy Candies, and the ability to enhance aroma to attract Pokémon.

Why can't you create a Route in Pokémon GO?

Unfortunately, while everyone can participate in exploring the Routes available in Pokémon GO from January 20, 2023, the creation of new Routes is only available to select Pokémon Trainers. According to information from Niantic Support on Twitter, the ability to create Routes is still rolling out gradually to all players, and invitations will be sent via email. However, until now, we don't know exactly when the Route creation feature will become available to all players.

How to Create a Route in Pokémon GO

If you have access to the Create Route feature in Pokémon GO, you can enjoy creating brand new hiking trails around your local area. Here are two ways to get you started:

  • Scroll down to the "Route Badge" section, located under your Incubator.
  • Select "Create New Route".

Record New Route

After you have selected "Create New Route", a Route map will be displayed. Here you will be asked to choose a Start Point for your Route. The starting point can be a PokeStop or a Gym.

Choose a PokeStop or Gym to set as the Route's Start Point. You can then select another PokeStop or Gym as the End Point for the Route, or press "Select Later".

Once you have defined the Start and End Points for your Route, you can start walking from the Start Point to the End Point. During this process, Pokémon GO will automatically record your Route. Once you reach an End Point or manually select an end point, you can submit your Route for approval.
