What's wrong with mandatory water routes? It's like a cave that is mandatory to travel through. We had two main ones (Chargestone and Twist). Those could easily have been water routes.

Well in past games I can't say I've enjoyed water routes, I hate to accuse certain regions, but I personally didn't enjoy Hoenn's love for the sea.

Chargestone Cave actually had plot progression and I can't say Twist Mountain is enjoyable, but at least the aesthetics differ slightly from regular caves. Unlike water routes, which are usually plotless and aesthetically similar.

And that is why I'm fond of Unova's bridge theme; they other something different in connecting towns, and in the case of Village Bridge a form of (optional) experience.

About a week ago I probably would have said that the Skyarrow Bridge was my favourite, just because it was so different compared to anything in the past games. After finding a Shiny Ducklett on the Driftveil Drawbridge though, that became my new favorite. Also, it's a good place to stock up on Genius/Muscle/Clever Wings, even if all I usually do is sell them for $1500 a piece.

By that logic, Marvelous Bridge because you can catch Swanna there. I still say Skyarrow first, there's something epic about that one, like you're leaving your home area and entering the big city for the first time. Marvelous is now 2nd for me, followed by Village, Driftveil, and Tubeline.

I've always loved Skyarrow Bridge the most, though all the bridges in Unova really impressed me. Skyarrow was just a magical experience to run over the first time, so many great angles and views, how could it not be.

Skyarrow Bridge is great for hatching eggs on, because despite all the fancy angles, it's a straight path, so it means little effort for egg hatching. I wouldn't say it's my favourite bridge as such just because of that, though- I like Village Bridge because.. well, it's a village. On a bridge. And I think you can catch Braviary there or something, which is awesome.

Tubeline Bridge was also pretty cool- I remember when I was walking along and saw Ghetsis waiting for me at the end, I was genuinely spooked a little. I know, he's a 32x32 pixel sprite, but it looked pretty eerie and daunting, because the time of day was just before it was getting dark and.. yeah.

So overall, I like a lot of the bridges, though I suppose I actually frequent Skyarrow the most for hatching eggs.

Vullaby/Rufflet are in the light grass, and the level switch between light and dark grasses actually makes sense as you'll find Lv.58-60 Mandibuzz/Braviary there. Both sets are version exclusive, mind. I wasn't through the E4 yet and got a trade for a Rufflet that was caught at Village Bridge.

Now that you mention it, having that bridge as a potential training area with a healing house on the same map is kinda cool.

Oh I didn't know that haha But I'll stick with Driftveil cause you come across it first and can therefore have it on your team earlier, plus I think it looks nicer

Marvelous has more to do on it than Driftveil does. This includes the Patrat game lady once you try to visit her at Village Bridge; she immediately leaves as you enter.

Village bridge, was more or less a fully fledged area. Lots of people, grass, a river to SURF on... yep, my favorite.

Marvelous seems to be JUST THERE, though, like those extra things were just thrown on. I certainly don't get that feeling with Village because it seems like old with the music and the feathers while on Marvelous you don't really get that feeling, even though there are things to supposedly have fun with :(

Skyarrow Bridge was an amazing way to say "Welcome to the mainland of Unova!" but I still love Village Bridge above all! It's so peaceful and beautiful, and the music is jaw-dropping! Tubeline is definitely a close second, with the trains contributing to the wonderful music.

I'll have to agree with all of you and go with Skyarrow Bridge! It seems to be a great bridge to walk in and the music is just addicting! It also helps me a lot when it comes to hatching eggs. The majority of them hatch when I'm walking on that bridge. xD

I really don't know why, but I found Driftveil bridge really... REALLY awesome. Maybe it's just 'cause I like drawbridges... But whatever. I LOVE it!!

I love both Skyarrow Bridge and Village Bridge.

Skyarrow has a fantastic view. The graphics are really well done. I remember the very first time I walked on it in White, I went oh my goodness, what awesome 3D effects on an equally awesome bridge!

Village Bridge's song is absolutely beautiful. It also has a rather traditional feel to it, and it is also very pretty.

I'm not good at making decisions, so I'm going to have to go with both.

Skyarrow Bridge for sureeeee. The music was pretty annoying though. If I'm gonna be hatching eggs, I don't want to hear that music over and over again. :/
