Part 8: National Park and Route 37

Part 8

National Park by Morning

Route 37

Route 37 is a tiny route in central Johto. It connects route 36 to Ecruteak with the closest other city being Violet City. It is only 64x64 blocks wide and is about as basic as a route gets. 

The process is the same process as usual. Create borders and fill them in with trees.

And there it is all complete.

National Park

The National Park is one of the largest landmarks in Johto. Nothing special happens here except the Bug Catching contests in the GBC and DS games. 

A characteristic of the park is its huge Pokeball defined with tall grass in the upper and lower halves with a large fountain in the centre.

The park is a little non-standard with its size. It pushes about half a chunk too far north of where I'd like it to be. So I guess Route 38 which is directly north of the park will be modified to fit.

Another thing that is a little non-standard. The gates don't quite line up.

Simple solution. Block off one entrance/exit on each station and build a tunnel to connect them.

Another thing that needed to be changed was the picnic area at the southern end. It only had to be mirrored otherwise the building to access the National Park from Route 35 would have to be widened to twice its width.

Trees go in now. Same process as always.

But not before adding some scenery.

Ok, now the trees. Now it is finished.

If you are wondering if I'd forgotten about the Pokeathlon Dome, I haven't, It just wont fit otherwise it will conflict with Olivine City when it's build. But if it does fit, it gets built.
