The '''Kanto''' region (Japanese: '''{{tt|カントー地方|カントーちほう}}''' ''Kanto-chihō region'') is a [[region]] of the [[Pokémon world]]. It is located east of [[Johto]], and as revealed by the {{DL|Pokégear|radio}} show {{DL|Pokémon Music Channel|Sinnoh Sound}}, is located south of [[Sinnoh]]. It was the first region to be introduced. It is the setting of the [[Generation I]] games, {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, and [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!|Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]]; it is also accessible in {{game5|Gold|Silver|Crystal|HeartGold|SoulSilver}} after the quest in Johto is completed.
All cities in Kanto are named after colors ([[Viridian City]], [[Lavender Town]], [[Indigo Plateau]], etc.), with the exception of [[Pallet Town]], which is also a reference to color. [[Professor Oak]] is the resident [[Pokémon Professor]] and gives [[Pokémon Trainer]]s a choice between {{p|Bulbasaur}}, {{p|Charmander}}, or {{p|Squirtle}} as their [[starter Pokémon]]. In Yellow, the only choice is a [[Red's Pikachu (game)|Pikachu]] that he recently caught, although he did have an {{p|Eevee}}. In Let's Go, Pikachu!, the player chooses Pikachu. In Let's Go, Eevee!, the player chooses Eevee. In the games, the player begins his or her journey in Pallet Town and ends it at Indigo Plateau.
