Route 10 north and Route 10 south are two parts of the route that splits around Rock Tunnel, where the northern part follows on from Route 9 and the southern part follows on from Rock Tunnel itself.
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 10 north
The northern part of Route 10 is short but sweet. There's a single patch of grass with a white picket fence, and access to the water - which has rare Pokémon of its own - once you can surf.
For now, all you can do is continue on to the south where you'll find a handy Pokémon Center - and a pesky team of Team Rocket Grunts! You'll be surrounded by four different Grunts at once, but thankfully there's a particularly helpful passer-by who comes to your aide.
That passer-by is Lorelei, one of the Elite Four - Kanto's strongest trainers - and she easily tackles three Team Rocket members at once while you deal with the fourth.
There's another trainer, and a Coach Trainer, just beyond the Pokémon Center, where you should heal up before heading into Rock Tunnel and beyond!
A quick note: there's a further area of Route 10 that can only be accessed with the water-surfing Secret Technique, Sea Skim, which you pick up in Fuchsia City. Once you get it, check back for some very rare Pokémon in the water, another trainer, some handy items, and access to the optional (but very worthwhile) area: the Power Plant!
