'''Tohjo Falls''' (Japanese: '''トージョウのたき''' ''Tōjō Waterfall'') are two waterfalls separating the [[Johto]] region from the [[Kanto]] region. It is known as ''The Link Between Kanto and Johto.'' Located in southwest Kanto, it is the final test of {{pkmn|Trainer}}s who have acquired all eight Johto Badges and wish to put their skills to the test against the [[Elite Four]], on [[Indigo Plateau]] to the north. The player will need the moves {{m|Surf}} and {{m|Waterfall}} to get through it. Because Trainers must get all eight Badges to be granted access to the Pokémon League, the falls effectively hinder any progress on {{rt|27|Kanto}} until after the Trainer has {{HM|07|Waterfall}} and has obtained the {{Badge|Rising}} from [[Clair]] at [[Blackthorn Gym]].

The {{player}} will need his/her {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} to use the [[move]]s {{m|Surf}} and {{m|Waterfall}} to get through it.

In {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, there is a [[cave]] hidden beneath the {{m|Waterfall|waterfall}} where the {{player}} {{pkmn|battle}}s [[Giovanni]] through a [[Nintendo]] {{pkmn2|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 [[item]]s found via {{m|Rock Smash}} without any concern of a {{pkmn2|wild}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} encounter.

The {{pkmn|battle}} music has suffered changes between the original games and their remakes. In {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, after beating the [[Elite Four]] for the first time and boarding the [[S.S. Aqua]], the pkmn|battle music in Tohjo Falls (as well as {{ka|Victory Road}}, {{rt|26|Kanto|Routes 26}} and {{rtn|27|Kanto}}) changes from the [[Johto]] version to the [[Kanto]] version. This change was not present in the original {{game|Gold and Silver|s}} nor in {{game|Crystal}}. It also applies to {{rt|28|Kanto}} but it is not affected by the {{player}}'s prior yet required achievements.

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

The battle music has suffered changes between the original games and their remakes. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, after beating the Elite Four for the first time and boarding the S.S. Aqua, the pkmn|battle music in Tohjo Falls (as well as Victory Road, Routes 26 and 27) changes from the Johto version to the Kanto version. This change was not present in the original Pokémon Gold and Silver nor in Pokémon Crystal. It also applies to Route 28 but it is not affected by the player's prior yet required achievements.

Giovanni

Giovanni hides out in 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 cries 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.



Eyecatches

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 Tohjo Falls.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In Chinchou in Charge, Misty, Brock and Erika passed through the 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

Tohjo Falls seems to be similar to Niagara Falls, with both having two waterfalls and serving as a well-known boundary between two places.

Name origin

The name is both an anagram of Johto and the two syllables of Johto reversed. In Japanese, particularly, the name seems to refer to the falls' location in the two regions: at the end of Kanto and the beginning of Johto. Its Japanese name may also come from 登場 tōjō, entrance.
