==Geography==

The Kanto region has a very temperate climate and not many notable landscape features, though this may be due to the region's origins in the [[Generation I]] games.

==In the anime==
[[File:Kanto anime.png|250px|thumb|Kanto in the {{pkmn|anime}}]]
Like in the {{pkmn|games}}, Kanto was the first region ever introduced in the anime, debuting in ''[[EP001|Pokémon - I Choose You!]]''. It is the home region of [[Ash Ketchum]] and three of his {{ashfr|traveling companions}}; {{an|Misty}}, {{an|Brock}}, and {{an|Go}}.
 
Three [[series]] have featured Kanto as their main setting. In the first portion of the [[original series]], Ash traveled through Kanto to collect eight [[Badge]]s and compete in the [[Indigo Plateau Conference]]. In the latter portion of the {{series|Advanced Generation}}, Ash traveled through Kanto again, this time to compete at the {{gdis|Battle Frontier|III}} facilities spread throughout the region, accompanied by Brock, {{an|May}}, and [[Max]]. In the [[new series]], Ash and Go mainly stay in Kanto in between their trips to other regions.
 
Kanto is also featured in every other series, as Ash always returns to his home in [[Pallet Town]] each time he completes a regional {{pkmn|journey}}.
 
==In the manga==
===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
===={{chap|Red, Green & Blue}}====
The Kanto region debuted at the beginning of the manga, in ''[[PS001|A Glimpse of a Glow]]''. It is the home region of {{adv|Red}}, {{adv|Green}}, and {{adv|Yellow}}.
 
During the ''Red, Green & Blue'' chapter, Red and Blue traveled across Kanto in preparation for competing in the [[Pokémon League]]. Along the way, they also foiled various nefarious schemes carried out by [[Team Rocket]]. At the end of the chapter, Red succeeded in defeating Blue at the Pokémon League finals, making him a {{pkmn|Champion|Pokémon League Champion}}.
 
===={{chap|Yellow}}====
Kanto was also the main setting for the ''Yellow'' chapter. Three years after the previous chapter, Red disappears after having received a mysterious battle challenge. Yellow set out to find him, and ended up battling against the villainous [[Elite Four]], who were not only the ones responsibile behind Red's disappearance, but also planned to create a utopia for Pokémon by erasing most of humanity. In the end, Yellow managed to defeat their leader, [[Lance]], and thus restore peace to the region.
 
==Trivia==
* The {{wp|Demonym|adjectival form}} of Kanto is "Kantonian", as seen for example in [[Kantonian Gym]].
[[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 [[core series]] region which has been featured in two separate {{pkmn|anime}} [[series]], once at the start of {{Ash}}'s {{pkmn|journey}} in the [[original series]], and once after Ash returned from [[Hoenn]] in the {{series|Advanced Generation}}.
