The Kanto region (Japanese: カントー地方 Kantō-chihō) is a large area located east of Johto, north-east of Hoenn, and south of Sinnoh. It is the first region to be introduced, explored in the Generation I games and in the Generation III games Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions. Kanto is also accessible in the Generation II games Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal and their Generation IV remakes 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 Trainers a choice between Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle as their starter Pokémon, though in Yellow the only choice is a Pikachu that he recently caught, although he did have an Eevee. In the games, the player begins his or her journey in Pallet Town and ends it at the Indigo Plateau.

It is based on and named after the real 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 all prior generations of Pokémon games. 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.

The artwork of Kanto in Generation I and Generation II depict Kanto as grassland, with very few trees. In Generation III and Generation IV, Kanto is seen with more trees, making it less like grassland.
