From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The Johto Festival (Japanese: ジョウトフェスタ Jōto Festa) is an event that appeared in An Egg Scramble!. The event is organized by Khoury's father to help people learn about the Johto region.
Ash and his friends first learn about it from Lyra, a Trainer from Johto who is also a part of the staff in Sinnoh.
One of the events in the Johto Festival is a battling exhibition. If one wins, they will receive a prize. Dawn was invited by Lyra to challenge her, and won against her Chikorita with Piplup. Her prize was an Egg that hatched into a Cyndaquil.
Another part of the Johto Festival is stands with free food from Johto, such as a Moomoo Milk stand. The stand run by Khoury and his dad sells Apricorns, Apricorn Cases, Berry Planters, Rage Candy Bars, and Apriblenders.
During the festival, a video featuring Lyra is played on a giant screen informing those at the festival about cities and landmarks in Johto, such as Ecruteak City and the Burned Tower.
In An Egg Scramble!, the Johto Festival was attacked by Team Rocket, who stole goods and Dawn's Egg. They were all retrieved by the end of the episode.
- The shipping JohtoFestaShipping was named after the Johto Festival, for the fact that both Lyra and Khoury were a part of the festival.
