** prior to Generation IV, a [[List of Pokémon by Johto Pokédex number|true regional Pokédex]] or a proper Safari Zone
** its own [[Pokémon League]] (although the anime gives it the [[Silver Conference]]), and by extension its own [[Victory Road]].
** a notable {{type|Water}} [[Type expert|specialist]].
* Johto shares its Pokémon League, [[Bill|Storage System developer]], and [[Team Rocket|villainous team]] with Kanto.
* In Generation II and IV, between Johto and [[Kanto]], the {{t|Dark}} type and the {{t|Ground}} type are the only types not represented by an official Gym. [[Viridian City]], whose previous Gym Leader [[Giovanni]], had the Ground type. However, when Giovanni left the Gym after being defeated by {{ga|Red}}, he was replaced by {{ga|Blue}}, who does not have a [[Type expert|type specialty]]. [[Karen]] of the [[Elite Four]] uses Dark-type Pokémon, making the Ground type the only type to not have a [[Gym Leader]] or Elite Four member specialized in it in Johto and Kanto for Generation II and IV.
* Unused location data for Johto (similar to the data for [[Hoenn]] and [[Kanto]] used for Pal Park) exists within the programming of Generation IV's games. Pokémon actually caught in Johto, however, display as being from "[[faraway place]]" when traded to a game taking place in [[Sinnoh]], much like Pokémon caught in a Platinum-exclusive location do when traded to Diamond or Pearl.
* Kanto and Johto are the only regions that are connected to each other by land.
* Johto is the only main region in which all the [[starter Pokémon]], throughout their evolutions, stay one [[type]] ({{t|Grass}}, {{t|Fire}}, and {{t|Water}}).
** It is also the only main region to not feature a notable Water-type specialist.
* In the anime, Johto is the only region so far in which:
** [[Ash Ketchum|Ash]] did not meet a new {{ashfr|traveling companion}}.
