[[File:GenI JA Kanto Town Map Reference.png|thumb|right|"A map of the Kanto region!<br>I hope she gives it to me..."]]
* Until the release of {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}, Kanto's name was seen only once in the Japanese [[Generation I]] games: upon viewing the [[Town Map]] at {{ga|Blue}}'s house. It was never mentioned in the Generation I games outside of Japan, and thus many fans assumed the [[region]] was called "Indigo", based on the name of the [[Indigo Plateau]]. By the time the [[Generation III]] remakes, {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, were released, Kanto's name was firmly established and appeared regularly in-game.
* Kanto is the only main [[regioncore series]] region which has been featured in two separate {{pkmn|anime}} [[series]], once at the start of {{Ash}}'s {{pkmn|journey}} (in the {{series|[[original}}) series]], and once after Ash returned from [[Hoenn]] (in the {{series|Advanced Generation}}).
** Until the release of {{game|Platinum}}, after Ash defeated [[Maylene]] and [[Crasher Wake]] (not to mention just before Ash challenges [[Fantina]]), it was also the only region in the anime where Ash defeated the [[Gym Leader]]s in a different order from the games.
** It is also the only region thus far to feature [[Battle Frontier (Generation III)|an element]] that was actually in a different region in the games. This may have been done to simultaneously promote {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} and {{game|Emerald}}.
