I've always seen the deserts as one of the most fun and interesting to explore areas in Pokemon. They are one of those areas that tend to have alot of pokemon that only live there. So what do you think of these unique settings?
Here is a list of all the desert routes and areas- (I'll include any area that's arid or has large populations of dryland pokemon, even if that area is not a true desert)
Hoenn Route 111- The first true desert in Pokemon, located near the center of the Hoenn region.
Spoiler:- Route 111:
Unova Route 4- A desert that is also occupied by a constuction project, in black 2 the project is completed, and the desert destroyed, but in white two the project is called off, and the desert remains.
Desert Resort- A large expanse of sand, the only home to such unusual pokemon as Maractus, Sigylph and Dwebble
You can see the great Unovan Desert towards the lower middle part of the region.
Spoiler:- Desert Resort:
Unova Route 18- This island is not a true desert. However, it was once adjacent to the desert resort, and as such, many desert pokemon live there.
Spoiler:- Route 18:
Lentimas Town and Twist Mountain- Could be called the "other" desert of Unova, this area has been dried to the bone by its proximity to a volcano. The area is the only home of dryland Skorupi and Vibrava in the pokemon world.
Lumiose Badlands- Possible the most barren and lifeless of all the deserts, it is inhabited by only three pokemon- trapinch, gible, and dugtrio (this is Kalos, mind you) all of which are fossorial, a testimony to how sterile this place is.
Spoiler:- Lumiose Badlands:
Kalos Route 9- Again, while it cannot be called a true desert, the area is nonetheless quite arid and home to numerous desert species, including Sandile, Helioptile, and Hipoppotas.
Spoiler:- Route 9:
Orre- The last desert in our list, the Orre region is basically entirely covered in desert! It is truly the largest in the pokemon world. It's native fauna is actually fairly limited, though. However this seems to be due to the interference of Cipher, and not due to the regions inhosbitability to desert pokemon.
And, just for fun now, a list of all the desert pokemon! (if I missed any, feel free to bring up.)
Spoiler:- Desert Pokemon:
As you can see, the deserts and the pokemon that live in them are very interesting places, so what do you think about them?
