Pokémon world locations

The Tohjo Falls (Japanese: トージョウのたき Tōjō Falls) are two waterfalls separating the Johto and Kanto regions, and known as The Link Between Kanto and Johto.

In the games

Located in southwest Kanto, it is the final test for Trainers who have acquired all eight Johto League Badges and wish to put their skills to the test against the Elite Four on Indigo Plateau to the north. The player will need his/her Pokémon to use the moves Surf and Waterfall to get through it. Because Trainers must obtain all the eight Johto League Badges to be granted access to the Pokémon League, the falls effectively hinder any progress on Route 27 until after the Trainer has HM07 (Waterfall) and has obtained the Rising Badge from Clair at Blackthorn Gym.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, there is a cave hidden beneath the waterfall where the player battles Giovanni through a Nintendo event. If the player simply enters the cave during regular gameplay, s/he will find an empty cave with a broken radio. Outside the event, this cave is otherwise useful for collecting items found via Rock Smash without any concern of a wild Pokémon encounter.

Also in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, after beating the Elite Four for the first time and boarding the S.S. Aqua, the battle music in the Tohjo Falls (as well as in Victory Road, Routes 26, 27, and 28) changes from the Johto style to the Kanto style. This change was not present in the original Pokémon Gold and Silver nor in Pokémon Crystal.

Trainers

Giovanni hides out in the Tohjo Falls, at least part of the time, during the three-year interim between Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, and hears Team Rocket's pleas to him from the Goldenrod Radio Tower when they take over. He can be battled through a Nintendo event, in which a Celebi takes the player back in time. The battle takes place at the same time that Team Rocket disbands again at the Goldenrod Radio Tower.

Eyecatch

The eyecatches are only present in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver and do not show the walkway that was added underneath the waterfalls.

In the anime

Although it is never visited directly, the Battle Tower is referred to as being close to the Tohjo Falls.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Chinchou in Charge, Misty, Brock and Erika passed through the Tohjo Falls on their way to Johto. While crossing a rope bridge, Misty fell into a waterfall and saved a Krabby that was in trouble. After this, in Lovely Lanturn, Suicune came and challenged her. Suicune decided to go with her, and she, Brock and Erika continued their journey.

Origin

The Tohjo Falls seem to be similar to the real-life Niagara Falls, as both have two waterfalls serving as a well-known boundary between two places.

Name origin

The name Tohjo is an anagram of Johto, but it can also refer to the location of the falls as a boundary between the two regions: at the end of Kanto and the beginning of Johto. Its Korean name is a portmanteau of 관 Gwandong (Kanto) and Seongdo (Johto), while its Chinese name is both an inversion of 城都 Chéngdū (Johto) and a portmanteau of 關 Guān (Kanto) and Chéng.
