Lumiere City's southern gate quickly leads to a fork in the road. However, the southern path is gated and open only to those who have defeated the Pokemon League. Thus, for most trainers, this isn't really a fork in the road at all. This other, more commonly taken path bends towards the west, remaining roughly parallel to the coast of Silver Sea. This very short path is free from wild pokemon, but has quite a few trainers on their way to Azure lakefront.
Soon enough, this path ends as the beachside of a large lake, called Azure Lake. Since it is so close to Lumiere City, it is a very popular for picnicing, swimming, and fishing. The path turns into a boardwalk, which is a prime fishing spot. Small piers branch off of this boardwalk, maximizing the perimiter of fishing area. By using surf, a trainer can leave the boardwalk and explore Azure Lake. While surfing or in patches of grass along the cost, many water type Pokemon can be found.
The eastern shore is full of fishermen and vacationers. However, the western coast is almost always vacant of vacationers. This is because it is surrounded by untamed wilderness, which the bike path simply goes over. Because of this, the western shore has a dangerous reputation, and most vacationers are simply happy with the peaceful, eastern shore.
If a traveler stays on the boardwalk, however, they will find that it soon leads to a ramp. This ramp is the beginning of the Bike Path, Rt. 315, which acts as a bridge over the rest of Azure Lake and its western wilderness.
