Pokemon GO Routes: How To Follow & Create

Learn how you can make and follow Routes in Pokemon GO.

The latest feature in Pokemon GO lets trainers create as well as follow routes. So, what is it all about? A route is a pre-defined path that you can take to earn additional Pokemon spawns, items, and also a unique badge after completing the path. Since this is a fairly new feature, trainers are still trying to come to grips with it. We will show you how to create, find, follow routes, and everything in between.

So first up, how can you follow the routes you like? It’s actually quite simple. Here is how you can find and follow routes in Pokemon GO.

  1. First, tap on the “Nearby” menu in the bottom left of your screen in Pokemon GO.
  2. Then, go to the “Routes” tab to find all the nearby routes within your area. Tap on any route to find details like the distance and time required to complete it.
  3. Once ready, walk to the route’s starting point and press the “Follow” button.
  4. Next, you simply need to start following the route as marked on the screen.
  5. Follow the exact path marked in gray to not miss out on credits and other rewards.
  6. The endpoint of the route is marked by a red flag, so keep walking toward it.

Once you reach the end, you will get rewards for completing the route. Remember to also pick up Zygarde Cells – glowing green spots – along the way. With that being said, we will now show you how to make your own routes in Pokemon GO.

Creating routes in Pokemon GO is actually pretty easy, follow the steps below to get started:

  1. First, travel to any Pokestop or Gym and set it as your Starting Point.
  2. Then, select the Ending Point of your Route.
  3. Now, hit “Record” to begin mapping your Route.
  4. Go to the end point of your Route to stop recording.
  5. Lastly, fill out the information required for making a route and “Submit” it for review.

At the moment, you won’t be able to create Routes in Pokemon GO. The routes that you see in the game are created by Niantic themselves. When the feature is rolled out fully, it will become available for all trainers to use. However, the steps to make routes will remain the same until then.

That’s everything you need to know on how to follow and create Routes in Pokemon GO. We hope that you learned everything about the Route feature. For more such guides, head to our Pokemon GO section.
