Pokemon Go Routes, How to Create a Route and Rules

Trainers, Routes are coming to Pokemon Go, and we now have more details about how to submit a Route, what are the rules when creating a route, and who reviews these routes.

In the Pokemon world Routes are known to be a passage that can be used by Trainers and others to travel between locations faster. In Pokemon Go these Routes may be used as a path for Trainers to walk on, complete tasks, earn rewards, etc. We are not sure how this will work in the game, so we just have to wait and see the final result.

The Routes in Pokemon Go must have a start and end point and must be between 0.5km/0.3 miles and 20km/12.4 miles. Pokemon Go Routes must have names and descriptions, and players can place pins along a Route to highlight something interesting. Niantic will be reviving these Routes, and they will decide which Route will be selected.

Please keep in mind that the Routes are not yet available in Pokemon Go, but we do have some info about how to submit one, thanks to the miners.

Here is everything you should know about the upcoming Routes feature in Pokemon Go.

Hello everyone! My name is Dejan, but you can call me Mr.D. I enjoy all video games, especially Apex Legends, Pokemon Go, and Spider-Man. A husband and father of two who also goes to the gym often and does Crossfit. I got inspiration for gaming exactly 8 years ago, and I've been writing gaming news for 7 years. I hope that you will find all the answers to your questions regarding gaming on our site. Stay healthy, and love each other!


  1. Is this the big update they are hyping about?
    Not to sounds like a naysayer, but… what’s even the point?
    I barely even have interest to run this app daily now.

  2. This sound like a bad idea. People making route that can tell where other work or live. That feel like a safety problem.

  3. User-generated missions have been in Ingress (Niantic’s other AR game) for a decade. This feels like another badge and attempt to get people out and about.
