Dewdrop Trail (Japanese: 露の小道 Dewdrop Trail) is a Rinto. It connects Minton in the south to Aldew in the north, and provides access to the exterior portion of Capeta Woods in the west. The Wooded Shrine is situated in the southeast of the route.located in southeastern
Passing through a level, partially wooded area, Dewdrop Trail is a simple path that is fairly easy to navigate. It is home to many small trees, which require the use of an axe to bypass, flowers, and patches of , which are capable of housing berry trees. It also comprises a few ponds and a river, which can only be crossed while wearing a swimsuit. Local legends say that the plant life is relatively lush as a result of a mysterious force. Most of the wild Pokémon that inhabit the route are common and of a low level, making it an unpopular place for to visit.
Like most other areas in south and east Rinto, Dewdrop Trail has a temperate climate. There is a chance of rain, wind and clouds in all four seasons, with slight chances of heavy rain in spring and autumn, intense sunlight in summer, falling leaves in autumn, hail in autumn and winter, and snow in winter.
Upon leaving Minton, a short path leads north to a bridge, which crosses a river. Beyond the bridge lies a patch of tall grass, from which a narrow path branches off to the east and leads down some steps to the riverbank. The east end of the river passes by a clearing where the Wooded Shrine is located, while the west end passes by another clearing, which houses a that can be jumped down. North of riverbank is another path that heads westwards towards a central area, which is situated directly north of the patch of tall grass and contains a few patches of soft soil.
Three paths lead away from the central area. Of the the three, only one heads west, leading to another patch of tall grass, beyond which a bus stop is situated. This patch of grass, however, is bypassed by a raised piece of land that travels around it, taking a slightly less direct route. South of the patch of grass is another narrow path that leads through the trees to the clearing towards the west end of the river. Due to the presence of the ledge, which can only be traversed from the other side, this is a dead end.
From the central area, two of the three paths head north, both leading to the same T-junction. The eastern one is blocked off by a small tree, while the western one leads through a patch of tall grass. The west branch of the T-junction bends north and passes through another patch of tall grass to a second central area. The east branch leads to a small clearing that contains many flowers and a pond, on the other side of which lies a bank. A narrow path, which is also blocked by a small tree, leads west from this clearing to the second central area, bypassing the patch of tall grass.
Two paths lead away from the second central area, one heading west and the other heading north. The west path leads through a patch of tall grass to a small tree, beyond which lies the exterior portion of Capeta Woods and a narrow path, which leads north to a strip of raised land that surrounds a pond but doesn't touch it. The path that heads north from the second central area contains a fork that leads west to one of the three banks of this pond. North of the fork is a patch of tall grass, and further north lies the entrance to Aldew. A final branch leads south, down a ledge, just before the entrance. A narrow path that is blocked off by a small tree leads to a small grove to the west, while a second ledge leads south, back to the second central area.
Dewdrop Trail has been around for as long as people can remember, and was crafted by early inhabitants of Minton who migrated to Aldew. The route then became a frequently used path between the two settlements, and is still used today. However, the bridge on the route was constructed fairly recently, being built by the Aldew Police just a few decades before the events of Pokémon Sunrise and Sunset. The route was much harder to traverse beforehand, meaning that only experienced travellers used it. Likewise, the bus stop is a recent addition, being built by TFR eights years before the Second Dawn in an attempt to make it easier for residents of Minton, Aldew, and Capeta to reach Rinto's major cities. Nobody knows exactly when or by whom the Wooded Shrine was constructed.

Pokémon Sunrise and SunsetEdit
Being located directly next to their home town, Dewdrop Trail is the first route that the player traverses on their journey. On the day of their graduation from the Trainer Academy, they meet up with Professor Redwood and their childhood friend, AmeliaM/CameronF, on the bridge in the south of the route and begin to make their way towards the bus stop, from which they can catch a bus to the academy. However, as they have not yet received a Pokémon, they are forbidden from entering any tall grass and must instead navigate the narrow paths that lead between the trees to proceed.
After receiving their starter Pokémon from Mrs Celeste, the player crosses Dewdrop Trail a second time in order to reach Aldew, from which they are able to reach Capeta, home of the Honeyhive Gym. However, several small trees, which require an axe to bypass, have sprouted since their previous visit, blocking the narrow path paths between the trees and forcing the player to travel through the patches of tall grass. They also block the path that leads to the exterior of Capeta Forest.
The player traverses the route a third and final time after they defeat Shelly in the Cashor Aquarium, as they must return to Capeta, Berry Way is blocked off by a landslide, and they have not yet received a pickaxe.
