|A town where the wind blows and tells of impending change. Isn't the tiny town you wake in so quaint and lovely? The wind is breezing, the water nearby is sloshing against the edge of town, the Pidgey are chirping in the distance...
Oh, right, you want to leave New Bark Town.
Two options: the road, or the docks.
|A city where you can smell small flowers and a sea breeze. Cherrygrove City is a quaint town home to a small, rocky beach and an affordable mud spa annexed to the inn. Guests can retire there after their initial three-day trek to be treated to aromatherapy, mud baths and excellent massages, and can purchase products with which to pamper themselves later on down the road, as well. If you endear yourself to the inn owner, you could even get some massage lessons!|
|This old village is still surrounded by trees and other scenery. Violet City boasts the region's
Moving on? Try Route 32 to the south or Route 36 to the west!
|A town where people and Pokémon live together in simple harmony. Azalea is a slow-moving town full of slow-moving folks. Many Johto residents choose to retire here, and the places of interest in the town show it: a small art gallery, a quiet jazz club. It's also home to a specialty Pokéball shop, where trainers can buy rare balls and get Apricorns converted, and the Ilex Forest Treetop Adventure Park, where for a small fee, you can spend the afternoon ziplining and climbing trees, rope ladders and canopy bridges!|
|A developing city where people and Pokémon come and go as they like. Goldenrod is the biggest city in Johto, home to the region's bustling department store as well as the Goldenrod Granbulls, four-year running Johto Baseball Champions. The sports stadium is frequented by Whitney, and hosts practices weekly on Fridays (free to watch!) and games biweekly on Sundays, March through October. It's quiet during the offseason, except in December — a Christmas market is set up in the stadium for the whole month, and attracts visitors from all over both regions. It's also the seat of the Breeding Center!|
|A city that even now bears the marks of its history. Ecruteak City is a city with a rich history and strong ties to tradition. The Kimono Dance Theater offers a chance to explore some of this in the form of traditional dance classes, ikebana, origami and shamisen/koto courses, as well as the annexed Ecruteak City Museum. Those interested in more modern theater can also find opportunities to participate in community plays and musicals, some of which are advertised in other cities in Johto.
Moving on? Try Route 42 to the east or Route 38 to the west.
|A city where you can hear the melody of the sea. Olivine City is widely regarded as the best dining spot in Johto: the city is inundated with small indie bars, cafés and restaurants and food festivals, and with MooMoo Farm and '39 Vintage Vineyards to the north, there's no shortage of good cheese and wine! The city is quickly gaining a reputation as 'the most romantic city in Johto.'|
|A beachside city that has benefitted greatly from the sea. Cianwood really has benefitted from its seaside locale — the surfing competitions they hold in the summer months (both board and Pokémon surfing) attract a sizable crowd of tourists, which has helped their resort business grow. The beaches here, where they aren't fringed by resort villas, are dotted with hidden coves, tidepools and driftwood graveyards perfect for bonfires.|
|A town with a suspicious air to it. It's a hiding place for ninjas. Whatever else it might be, Mahogany is home to the Mahogany Mamoswines, who play and practice hockey at the Mahogany Ice Rink from September to April. During the offseason and from Christmas Eve to New Year's, as well as the week of Valentine's Day, the ice rink is open to the public for their enjoyment.|
|A mysterious mountain village cut into a rock face. Blackthorn may be quiet, but its slopes are busy. The city is known for having the most hardcore ski slopes in Johto or Kanto, and while the locals may not appreciate the attention, tourism has given rise to hot springs establishments up in the mountains. Between skiing, relaxing, and the mines that are in operation from March to October every year, Blackthorn's doing pretty well.|
