Sun and Moon: All the Route 1 Pokemon You Can Find

Pokemon Sun and Moon brings back a lot of staples to the series. One such are the Routes you can take in the game, with Route 1 making its remixed return in Alola’s Melemele Island. Naturally, you will find a ton of low-leveled Pokemon to start off your adventure here with. Here’s a list of what you can potentially find in the tall grass areas around this route. The ones that note uncommon are a bit tougher to come across:

  • Pikipek
    • Normal, Flying
  • Yungoos
    •  Normal
  • Rattata
    • Dark, Normal
  • Caterpie
    •  Bug
  • Ledyba
    • Bug, Flying
  • Spinarak
    • Bug, Poison
  • Metapod
    •  Bug
  • Pichu (uncommon)
    • Electric
  • Rockruff (common in 10 Carat Hill)
    • Rock
  • Grubbin (common in 10 Carat Hill)
    • Bug
  • Bonsly (uncommon)
    • Rock
  • Grimer (uncommon)
    • Poison, Dark
  • Magnemite (but more common in Hua’oli City)
    • Electric, Steel
  • Meowth (but more common in Hua’oli City)
    • Dark
  • Wingull
    • Flying, Water
  • Slowpoke (common in 10 Carat Hill)
    • Water, Psychic
  • Diglett (common in 10 Carat Hill)
    • Ground, Steel
  • Zubat (common in 10 Carat Hill)
    • Poison, Flying
  • Psyduck (common in 10 Carat Hill)
    • Water

It is, of course, the first area you will be able to catch Pokemon in. So don’t fret about all the low levels or if you just keep seeing the same pocket monsters that you can encounter. You need to keep adventuring forth, and some of the above are well worth the search.


If you’re seeking to complete your Pokedex or nab some great types to start off your team with, Route 1 is the place to hunt. For more help with Sun and Moon, be sure to check out Twinfinite’s wiki for guides and tips!
