Route 4 west and Route 4 east are two halves of the same route, and follow on from Route 3 and Mt. Moon respectively in your quest through Pokémon Let's Go's main story.

Below, we'll cover any and all of the obtainable Pokémon, item locations, trainers and their squads that you might encounter in the area, as well as walking you through any key steps of the story along the way.

We've also opted to break out walkthrough pages down into sections, referring to each of your visits to a given location, seeing as you often backtrack or revisit various places in your quest to become Champion! Where applicable, we'll split our page into one section for each visit, and of course if there are any, clearly mark any spoilers, too!

For more like this, be it specific systems explainers or walkthrough pages on more locations, head back to our main Pokémon Let's Go walkthrough and guide hub.

Pokémon Let's Go: Route 4 west

The first time you reach Route 4 in your quest through Let's Go will be the western half of it - which is a very short area before the entrance to Mt. Moon.

Heal up at the Pokémon Center after that battling you probably just did on Route 3, and be sure to talk to the man inside!

He'll offer you a Magikarp for the price if $500 - a princely sum, but trust us when we say it's worth it. This Magikarp is a gift, and gifted Pokémon have enhanced stats, so if you want a strong one to evolve into a Gyarados later, and don't fancy grinding through Catch Combos to get a better one much later on in the game, this is your best shot! You'll earn hundreds of times that amount of money as you progress through the game, too.

Pokémon Let's Go: Route 4 east

Route 4 east is the part of the route that comes out the other end of Mt. Moon. It's a little longer than the western half, with more items and wild Pokémon but no trainers at all. It also features starter Pokémon Charmander, like Route 3 did just a little earlier on.
