Tohjo Falls

In the games: Fixed minor grammar error.
Located in southwest Kanto, it is the final test for {{pkmn|Trainer}}s who have acquired all eight {{badge|Johto League}}s and wish to put their skills to the test against the [[Elite Four]] on [[Indigo Plateau]] to the north. The {{player}} will need his/her {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} to use the [[move]]s {{m|Surf}} and {{m|Waterfall}} to get through it. Because Trainers must obtain all the eight Johto League Badges to be granted access to the [[Pokémon League]], the falls effectively hinder any progress on {{rt|27|Kanto}} until after the Trainer has {{HM|07|Waterfall}} and has obtained the {{badge|Rising}} from [[Clair]] at [[Blackthorn Gym]].
In {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, there is a [[cave]] hidden beneath the waterfall where the player {{pkmn|battle}}s [[Giovanni]] through a {{pkmn2|event|Nintendo event}}. If the player simply enters the cave during regular gameplay, s/hethey will find an empty cave with a broken radio. Outside the event, this cave is otherwise useful for collecting [[item]]s found via {{m|Rock Smash}} without any concern of a [[wild Pokémon]] encounter.
Also in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, after beating the {{DL|Elite Four|Kanto/Johto Elite Four|Elite Four}} for the first time and boarding the [[S.S. Aqua]], the battle music in the Tohjo Falls (as well as in {{ka|Victory Road}}, {{rt|26|Kanto|Routes 26}}, {{rtn|27|Kanto}}, and {{rtn|28|Kanto}}) changes from the [[Johto]] style to the [[Kanto]] style. This change was not present in the original {{game|Gold and Silver|s}} nor in {{game|Crystal}}.
