The Kanto region is a region created by Gamefreak for the Generation I games, Red, Green and Blue. It was later expanded slightly in Yellow, with the addition of mini-game location, and further modified in the Generation II games (and their Gen IV remakes). It was also expanded to include the Sevii Islands in the Generation III remakes of Red and Green.

- Kanto is based on a region in real-life Japan.
- In the international releases, the region was not given a name in Generation I.
- In Japan, the region's name was only mentioned in passing during Generation I.
- Many places that were removed from Kanto during Generation II were restored during the Generation IV remakes. Mateo believes this is at least partially due to fan outcry over their removal in Generation II.
