Route 3 is a nice and simple one, heading east and following on from Pewter City 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 3 - available Pokémon, items and trainers

Head onto the route and you'll see an impressive-looking trainer - they're a Coach Trainer, the first one you'll have met so far.

Coach Trainers are slightly tougher trainers than the others on the route, but they tend to have their Pokémon all use one main move - beat them, and you'll get a TM as a reward, usually for the move they've been using a lot in battle!

The other person here is none other than the Youngster Ben, who famously really likes shorts. Sorry if you don't get that reference!

Finally, an important note: this is one of only a few routes where you can get Charmander in Pokémon Let's Go! Like all starter Pokémon in the wild it requires you to build up a catch combo in order to reduce it's rarity enough for it to appear without some incredible luck.
