The Pokémon League Reception Gate (Japanese: ポケモンリーグうけつけゲート Pokémon League Reception Gate) is a large gate located in Kanto to the west of Route 22. The building serves as a Gym Badge checkpoint for both Kanto and Johto Trainers in these games.

This gate is named the Pokémon League Front Gate (Japanese: ポケモンリーグしょうめんゲート Pokémon League Front Gate) in Generation I and III, where it simply contains the Boulder Badge checkpoint and connects Routes 22 and 23.


In Generation I and III

In Generation I and III, the Pokémon League Front Gate serves as the Boulder Badge checkpoint, as the Badges are each checked individually by eight guards distributed throughout Route 23. It also serves as the connector between Routes 22 and 23. It is not a four-way intersection, unlike its Generation II and HeartGold and SoulSilver incarnations.

In Generation II and IV

In Generation II and IV, the Pokémon League Reception Gate replaces Generation I and III Route 23 in multiple ways: the Gym Badge checkpoints are consolidated into a single checkpoint inside the Pokémon League Reception Gate, and the Pokémon League Reception Gate now connects directly to Victory Road. This is why Route 23 is an extremely short road in Generation II, and is just considered a part of Indigo Plateau itself in Generation IV, causing Route 23 to no longer exist.

Trainers entering Kanto from Johto via Routes 26 and 27 are forced to enter this building from the south. Here, they are stopped by a Pokémon League official and must present the eight Johto Gym Badges before they can advance. Past the guard is a four-way intersection of hallways; however, only the north hallway leading to Victory Road and therefore Indigo Plateau is initially open. The east hallway, leading to Viridian City via Route 22, is blocked by a guard until the player enters the Pokémon League Reception Gate from the Route 22 side; once the guard has stepped aside, the player can travel between Johto and the main part of Kanto without flying, teleporting, or taking the S.S. Aqua or the Magnet Train. The west hallway, leading to Route 28 and Mt. Silver, is opened by Professor Oak once the player has collected all eight Kanto Gym Badges.

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Janine will appear here every evening between 4 PM and 6 PM after being defeated and will give the player her phone number so that she can be called for a rematch.
