Route 21 is a return to normal in terms of routes: short and simple. It follows on from Cinnabar Island, Blaine, and Pokémon Mansion 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 21 - available Pokémon, items and trainers
Short but sweet, Route 21 is a mostly-water route that leads north from Cinnabar Island to none other than Pallet Town, the place where your journey began.
There are plenty of trainers to battle and items to collect, but the route's most interesting feature is the small patch of grass on dry land at the northern end. It's the only place you can catch Tangela, as well as a place that gives a very small chance of third-stage evolutions Victreebel (in Let's Go Eevee) and Vileplume (in Let's Go Pikachu) appearing, too.
