Tohjo Falls in Generation II

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 Trainers 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 Surf and 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 Route 27 until after a trainer has HM07 and has obtained the Rising Badge from Clair at Blackthorn Gym.

Trainers

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 Radio Tower when they take over. He can be battled through a special Nintendo event, in which a Celebi takes the player back in time. The battle takes place at the same time that Team Rocket re-disbands at the Goldenrod Radio Tower.



Eyecatch

In the anime

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

Trivia

  • The eyecatches do not show the walkway that was added underneath the falls.
  • In Generation IV, after beating the Elite Four for the first time and boarding the S.S. Aqua, the battle music in Tohjo Falls (as well as Victory Road, Route 27 and Route 26) changes from the Johto to the Kanto style. This change was not present in Generation II. The battle music in Route 28 also have switched battle music in Generation IV.
  • In Generation IV, there is a cave hidden beneath the waterfall where the player battles Giovanni through a Nintendo Event. If the player simply enters the cave (not through the event) they will find an empty cave with a broken radio.
    • The only useful function that has been discovered with this cave is that it allows players to collect Items found via Rock Smash without any concern of a Wild Pokémon encounter.

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.
