The '''Johto''' region (Japanese: '''{{tt|ジョウト地方|ジョウトちほう}}''' ''Johto reguonregion'') is a [[region]] of the [[Pokémon world]]. It is located west of [[Kanto]], and as revealed by the {{DL|Pokégear|radio}} show {{DL|Pokémon Music Channel|Sinnoh Sound}}, is located south of [[Sinnoh]]. It is the setting of {{game5|Gold|Silver|Crystal|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}. Johto and Kanto are part of a large landmass, with everything west of [[Indigo Plateau]] falling in the Johto region. It was the second [[main series]] region to be introduced.
First explored in {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}, it is home to an additional 100 {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} that were not present in [[Generation I|the previous games]]. Players begin their journey in [[New Bark Town]], where [[Professor Elm]] offers either {{p|Chikorita}}, {{p|Cyndaquil}}, or {{p|Totodile}} to beginning [[Pokémon Trainer]]s. The English-version names of most of the cities in Johto are also the names of plants or things related to plants.
