Location of Route 8 in West Tandor.

Route 8 - Wheatfields is a part of the route system in West Tandor that connects Vinoville Town, Legen Town and Bealbeach City.

Spoiler Warning

Main article: Hazard Zone
After beating the Vinoville Town Gym, Route 8 will turn into a Hazard Zone with altered terrain and wild Pokémon encounters. Items and trainers are no longer present and the route now connects to the Nuclear Plant Zeta.

Route Description

This route features rich golden wheat fields nestled in a dense forest and a serene fish farm pond. The vast fields provide wild Pokémon a great habitat to thrive while farmers tend to the land.

Places of Interest

Fishing Pond

Due west of the landing for the BB Ferry, you'll find a house next to a lake, with a fisherman standing on a dock. Speak to him to receive the Good Rod. There is a house located near here with an old lady that heals your Pokémon and a PC.

Ripley's House

Main Article: Ripley's Sidequest


Ripley's House on Route 8.

Just southeast of the wheat fields, before continuing to Vinoville Town or Legen Town you will find the home of the wheat farmer. If you visit during the day you'll find his daughter, Ripley, tired and sleep deprived; she will tell you to come back later.

When you visit Ripley again during the night, she'll tell you about the strange crop circles that keep appearing in her family's wheat fields and she will ask for your help. If you agree to help her, she will reward you with a S51; this is the only way you can catch one in the game.

Route 11

Main article: Route 11

In the southwest corner of Route 8 is the gate to Route 11. However, until you have completed the storyline, the gate guard will turn you back, telling you that Route 11 is a nature preserve. Pokémon trainers are not allowed to catch wild Pokémon there or even enter without special permission.

  • Ripley is an obvious nod toward the sci-fi heroine Ellen Ripley, who had a run-in with extraterrestrials of a bit less amicable nature in Alien.
  • Route 8's BGM is the World Map music from Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles.
