1500 years before modern times, the place now known as the Ruins of Alph was built in Johto, and the earliest known system for writing—the modern Latin alphabet—was developed. Although no one knows exactly who built the Ruins of Alph, research indicates that the people in question were an ancient civilization that wished to co-exist with the enigmatic Unown that bear great similarity to the alphabet letters. Not only did that tribe impart messages on the ruins' walls describing the Unown, but they also erected a Pokémon statue for an unknown reason.

At some point later, outsiders began to gather near the ruins. As the Unown were timid creatures, they rejected contact with anyone but the clan that protected them. To ensure the Unown's well being, the Ruins of Alph's inhabitants decided to leave the region, but not without devising complicated puzzles so that one day the Unown could be summoned again. As for the clan, their quest led them to a mountain far to the north, where they met another group of people who had hailed from the Spear Pillar. Together, the two groups built a temple in honor of Arceus, which incorporated elements from both the Ruins of Alph and the Spear Pillar; this collaboration probably has to do with the underlying relationship between Arceus and the Unown. The temple, too, has since been left in ruins and its lowest floor is now known as the Sinjoh Ruins; however, the ritual of honoring legendary Pokémon through dance circulated back to Johto, specifically to Ecruteak City.

Approximately 700 years before modern times, the people of Ecruteak built two nine-tier towers with the hopes of fostering friendship and hope between Pokémon and humans. They were the Brass Tower in the west, which was said to awaken Pokémon, and the Bell Tower in the east, where Pokémon were said to rest. Both towers became the roost of powerful flying Pokémon: Lugia and Ho-Oh, respectively. It is unknown what made the residents revere Lugia and Ho-Oh, but a separate tale indicates that Lugia had previously had an encounter with the people of Johto when it stopped a war on the Whirl Islands, which were a single island at that time.

The Johto region, like its neighboring region, Kanto, has a temperate climate. However, Johto's climate is a bit wetter than Kanto's climate.

Johto is notably more rural than the Kanto region, which leans more towards to the urban side. The region has an abundance of water to the west and south, but is still dominated by land. Johto's ultra-modern Goldenrod City is found in the heart of the region, on the coast. Due to its centralized position in the region, many smaller but important cities and towns connect to the city. Johto has one large mountain range encompassing almost the entire eastern half of the region. Blackthorn City is nestled deep between the mountains and is very unique because it is a city for Dragon Tamers.



Here you may battle and catch pokemon EXCLUSIVELY for the Johto region ONLY.


Have a fun time battling and catching pokemon ^^

Underneath a tree stands a man in glasses with a Hoothoot perched on his shoulder....

He's looking up at a Murkrow sitting up in one of the branches, and he's blowing into a little whistle in his hand... but the whistle makes a pefect Murkrow call! The Murkrow calls back, and then flies off into the sky.

The Hoothoot notices the girl coming up the road, and alerts the man who turns around.

"Hello! You surprised me... oh, a Pikachu? This is the first time I've actually seen a real-life Pikachu... a double surprise! This is just... I'm just..."

He pauses to catch his breath.

"I'm sorry... that was very rude of me, not introducing myself. I'm Steven Hunter... pleased to meet you!"

He bows deeply, causing Hoothoot to flap his wings to keep his balance.

"Well, again... nice to meet you, Melanie! When did you arrive in Little Root Town? I take it you haven't had lunch yet. We were just thinking of having lunch too... right, Hoothoot?"

Hoothoot flutters up from Steven's shoulder and perches on his head.

"I'll take that as a yes... I was on my way to town to get some supplies, but I can make some stew here with some of the veggies I've got. Is that all right with you?"

Steven grabs a bowl on a little tripod, sets it down and fills the bowl with something that looks like seeds. Hoothoot flies down to the bowl and starts eating.

"I've got some Pokemon food too. I hope Pikachu might like it, but I don't know much about the tastes electric types like yet."

Steven sits down under the tree and starts rummaging through his backpack.

Steven stirs up the stew in a little iron pot: carrots, potatoes, celery and some spices.

"Please, you're more than welcome to share lunch with us! That way, we can get to know each other... even though I've lived in Johto for a long time, this is actually my first time outside of the Violet City area."

Steven finds two small bowls in his backpack, and spoons out some stew into each. He hands one of the bowls and a spoon to Melanie.

"And please call me Steve... may I call you Melanie? And does your Pikachu have a name?"

Steven starts looking around for some Pokemon food in his pack. Finding it, he places another bowl on the ground and fills it with Pokemon food.

"Sorry, I'm full of questions today... who is this Jonny, and why does he need to be rescued? That sounds like some pretty serious business..."
