Route 25 and Bill's House are your next stops, and follow swiftly on from Route 24 and Nugget Bridge 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!

Pokémon Let's Go: Route 25 and Bill's House

Route 25 is an area where local trainers like to come and hone their skills, but it's also rumoured to be the home of a mysterious Pokémon fanatic, called Bill.

pokemon_lets_go_route_25_1

There's a small hedge maze with several items and trainers to tackle, so it's a great spot for you to practice battling and get some XP, too - build up a catch combo, and there's also a good chance you'll encounter a wild Squirtle, as well! Although just like Bulbasaur and Charmander, you can pick up a strong one as a gift a little later on...

Head back to our main Pokémon Let's Go walkthrough and guide hub for all our pages in one place, including detailed, step-by-step help for tough spots like Cerulean Cave, and the Elite Four, plus tough dungeons like Silph Co., Seafoam Islands and Victory Road. Otherwise, take a peek(achu) at our Pokémon Let's Go TM list and all TM locations, Let's Go's starter locations and how to get Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle, along with how to get Mew in Let's Go, and how to get Meltan in Let's Go and Go too. Beyond that we also explain how connect Pokémon Go to Let's Go on Nintendo Switch and transfer Pokémon, Catching, catch combos, and how to catch Pokémon, a quick collection of our best Pokémon Let's Go tips and tricks to get you off to a great start, and finally what we know about the Pokémon Pass app distribution event too.


In the top right corner of the route you'll find Bill's House - although, inside, there's no sign of Bill.

There is a slightly "off" looking Nidirino in there though. Talk to it, and you'll realise what's happened: Bill's transformed himself into a Pokémon! Once he gets back into the machine, head over to the computer on the left and interact with it to help him out.

Once he's back to normal, he'll give you a couple of tickets to the S.S. Anne cruise ship that's docked at Vermilion City, and you can head off - there's a shortcut to town along the bottom of the route, with some bushes full of berries that are worth harvesting. When you return, that blocked house in the top right of Cerulean City will be cleared.

Check out the Cerulean City revisited section of that page for more, and then it's onwards to the south, to Route 5 for the next steps in your quest! Otherwise, cycle back to our main Pokémon Let's Go walkthrough and guide hub for all the other pages we have like this.
