Johto League

The Johto League (Japanese: ジョウトリーグ Johto League) is the regional Pokémon League of the Johto region. It consists of a network of eight Gyms and the Elite Four. Less commonly, it is known as the Silver League, usually when referring to the anime.

Pokémon Trainers who earn eight Badges from sanctioned Johto League Gyms qualify to fight in Johto League competitions.

In the anime, the Silver Conference is the Johto League's annual championship competitions. It is held in Silver Town at the base of Mt. Silver.

The Indigo League and Johto League share a single group of Elite Four and Champion; eight Badges from either region will allow a Trainer to battle the Elite Four at Kanto's Indigo Plateau.
