Route 12 is a desert-grassland crossover route that connects Aredia City and Route 13. Starting from the exit of Aredia City, there is a small portion of desert land. Afterwards, the rest of the route are covered by mild grass and high terrains. HM6 Rock Smash is required in order to continue progress on the route, while HM1 Cut is also necessary for reaching Nature's Den. The overall terrain of the route is slightly complicated, yet a wide range of Pokémon can be found.
Erik's MooMoo Farm
Featuring the co-founder of Roblox — Erik Cassel, Erik's MooMoo Farm is located in the open areas of trees and grassland. It can easily be identified as a gigantic sign with the farm's name is shown. A tree is planted in front of the farm, with Erik's hat and a flower under the tree in memorial of Erik Cassel. There are also a few Miltank around the farm. However, the farm is not ready to sell Moomoo Milk yet as of now, although you can try your luck at getting Moomoo Milk at Hobo's Lucky Lotto in Anthian City Shopping District, Anthian City.
Note: Rarity levels are estimations according to this scale and might be subject to changes due to different encounter assessment results, unless supported by official encounter rates, which are listed in red under the rarity level if known. If there are any Pokémon with low catch rates, the possibility to flee or requirement of gaining happiness to evolve, recommended Poké Balls for that Pokémon will be shown with the corresponding bag sprite under the Pokémon's name.

- Camper Henry is the optimal EXP hotspot for trainers who have Crater Badge, but not Harvest Badge. His team gives more than 5600 EXP upon defeat, surpassing Adventurer Jesper's party in Cragonos Mines slightly.
- Unfortunately, Henry's spot was quickly taken over by Punk Guy Nathaniel on Route 14.
- Route 12 is currently one of the only routes that require many HMs to complete.
