Johto Anime

The Johto region

The Johto region (ジョウト地方, Jōto-chihō) is a region of Mobius. It is located west of Kanto, and as revealed by the radio show Sinnoh Sound, is located south of Sinnoh. Johto and Kanto are part of a large landmass, with everything west of Indigo Plateau falling in the Johto region. Though it is unlike Kanto in that its name is not directly based on that of a region of Japan; Junichi Masuda has come forward in his director's column naming the kanji that inspired the name mean "castle palace" (城都) or "lattice-shaped palace" (条都); this meaning is connected to the city of Nara, which was the basis for Violet City.

First explored in Johto, trainers begin their journey in New Bark Town, where Professor Elm offers either Chikorita, Cyndaquil or Totodile to beginning Pokémon Trainers. Most of the cities in Johto are also the names of plants or things related to plants.

Johto returns again later, with all areas from its iteration returning, and several new areas being accessible, such as the Johto, with the new Routes Route 47 and Route 48 leading to it.
