The '''Kanto''' region (Japanese: '''{{tt|カントー地方|カントーちほう}}''' ''Kanto-chihō'') 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 hertheir journey in Pallet Town and ends it at Indigo Plateau.
It is based on and named after the real {{wp|Kantō region}} (関東, meaning "east of the barrier") in Japan. Unlike almost every other region, which are specific to their own generations, Kanto has been explorable in the first four generations of Pokémon games, as well as the seventh generation. However, it is not the primary region in the Generation II and IV games it appears in, in which players explore the neighboring Johto region before exploring Kanto.
