'''Johto''' (Japanese: '''ジョウト地方''' ''Jōto-chihō''), meaning "castle palace" (Japanese: '''城都''' ''Jōto'') and "lattice-shaped palace" (Japanese: '''条都''' ''Jōto''), is a region connected to the western part of Kanto. It was introduced in [[Generation II]], {{game name|Gold and Silver|Pokémon Gold, Silver}}, and {{game name|Crystal}} later seen in their remakes, {{game name|HeartGold and SoulSilver|Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver}}. The [[Pokémon: The Johto Journeys|third]], [[Pokémon: Johto League Champions|fourth]], and [[Pokémon: Master Quest|fifth]] seasons of the [[Pokémon Anime|anime]] are also set there. In the games, all its cities have plant-themed or colour-themed names. Johto is geographically similar to the [[wikipedia:Kansai region|Kansai]], eastern [[wikipedia:Shikoku|Shikoku]] and western [[wikipedia:Tōkai region|Tōkai]] regions of Japan. There are old-fashioned cities reminiscent of [[wikipedia:Nara|Nara]] and [[wikipedia:Kyoto|Kyoto]] and a modern commercial city reminiscent of [[wikipedia:Osaka|Osaka]]. Some inhabitants speak the [[wikipedia:Kansai dialect|Kansai dialect]] in the Japanese releases of the games.
   
 
The mythology of the Johto region features [[Ho-Oh]], the Rainbow Pokémon guardian of the skies, and [[Lugia]], the Diving Pokémon guardian of the seas, who previously perched on the Bell and Brass Towers respectively in [[Ecruteak City]]. When the Brass Tower burned down in a storm, Lugia flew away, and three Pokémon died in the process. Ho-Oh revived these Pokémon, creating [[Raikou]], [[Entei]], and [[Suicune]]. Lugia's home, the [[Whirl Islands]], were also created when the Pokémon dispelled a war over a singular island, splitting it into four islands and making them its home, producing powerful whirlpools to protect itself. [[Celebi]], the Time Travel Pokémon, also calls Johto its home, residing in the [[Ilex Forest]] where it brings Pokémon and Trainers forward and back in time.

Johto (Japanese: ジョウト地方 Jōto-chihō), meaning "castle palace" (Japanese: 城都 Jōto) and "lattice-shaped palace" (Japanese: 条都 Jōto), is a region connected to the western part of Kanto. It was introduced in Generation II, Gold and Silver, and Crystal later seen in their remakes, HeartGold and SoulSilver. The third, fourth, and fifth seasons of the anime are also set there. In the games, all its cities have plant-themed or colour-themed names. Johto is geographically similar to the Kansai, eastern Shikoku and western Tōkai regions of Japan. There are old-fashioned cities reminiscent of Nara and Kyoto and a modern commercial city reminiscent of Osaka. Some inhabitants speak the Kansai dialect in the Japanese releases of the games.

The mythology of the Johto region features Ho-Oh, the Rainbow Pokémon guardian of the skies, and Lugia, the Diving Pokémon guardian of the seas, who previously perched on the Bell and Brass Towers respectively in Ecruteak City. When the Brass Tower burned down in a storm, Lugia flew away, and three Pokémon died in the process. Ho-Oh revived these Pokémon, creating Raikou, Entei, and Suicune. Lugia's home, the Whirl Islands, were also created when the Pokémon dispelled a war over a singular island, splitting it into four islands and making them its home, producing powerful whirlpools to protect itself. Celebi, the Time Travel Pokémon, also calls Johto its home, residing in the Ilex Forest where it brings Pokémon and Trainers forward and back in time.

100 previously unknown Pokémon reside in Johto. In the Generation II games, the player's home town is New Bark Town, where they can choose either Chikorita, Cyndaquil, or Totodile as his/her first Pokémon.

GeographyEdit

The terrain of Johto is similar to that of Kanto, with a jagged mountain range in the north-east, descending to a boundless ocean in the south-west.

LocationsEdit

Cities/TownsEdit

Areas of InterestEdit

RoutesEdit

Johto's routes start where Kanto left off: routes in Johto are numbered 29-48, where Kanto's are 1-28.

The Pokémon LeagueEdit

The Johto League is the greatest aspiration of all Trainers. Because they are neighboring regions, Johto and Kanto share the same Elite Four, located at Indigo Plateau. One Badge from each Johto Gym is required to enter.

Real-life ConnectionEdit

Following the tradition, the Johto region is based on a real-world region of Japan, the Kansai region, just as Kanto is based on the real Kanto region in Japan.

TriviaEdit

  • Apart from Unova, Johto is the last region to be featured on a newer handheld (GBC & DS).
  • Until the release of Kalos in Generation VI Johto was the only region without the letter 'N' in its name.

  • Of all of the regions, Johto introduced the lowest amount of new Pokémon, with only 100, until Generation Six when Kalos was introduced, along with only seventy-two new Pokemon.
  • Johto lacks many elements that other regions have. Most of these are due to Johto sharing them with Kanto. Therefore, it is the only region without:
  1. An Electric- and a Water-type Gym. (However Kalos lacks a Water type gym, probably due to an Elite Four member using Water type Pokemon).
  2. Its own set of Fossil Pokémon,
  3. A Pokémon burial ground,
