The New Region of Johto

The games were the first to introduce a country separate from the one in the original Pokémon titles (Kanto). This new region, named Johto, offers about a hundred new pokémon for players to capture and discover with a new version of the Pokédex; plus, there's also the addition of the Pokégear, Berries, special pokéballs, and breeding Pokémon to produce Pokémon Eggs from which baby Pokémon hatch.

  1. The player can meet and battle many of the characters from the previous games, including the rival of the original games, Blue (Green in the Japanese versions). After completing the quests in Kanto, the player can access a new area in Johto and battle Red, the protagonist of the original games. Another quite notable difference is that Koga, gym leader of Fuschia City (now Elite Four member), has been replaced by his daughter, Janine.
  2. Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres are no longer here, apparently due to being replaced by Raikou, Entei, and Suicune. The Unknown Dungeon and Mewtwo are also gone.
  3. Pokémon Tower in Lavender Town is replaced by a Radio Tower, similar to the one in Goldenrod City.
  4. The Power Plant has also been altered, and it is now in use. This is due to the Magnet Train in Saffron City where the Copycat used to live. She has moved to another home in the same city.
  5. The Safari Zone no longer exists. Some have speculated that the Safari Zone was not included in the Gold and Silver games because of the presence of the Glitch City trick, and once it was removed, it had to be put somewhere else, so it was moved to what is now the Johto bug-catching contest. Missingno and 'M are gone, too.
