Test Your Kanto Region Knowledge with This Quiz

See how well you know the people, places, and Pokémon we’ve met in the video games, animation, and Pokémon TCG.

Gather 'round, Pokémon fans, for the final region-based quiz of our 25 years of Pokémon celebration. For the past several months, we've been traveling back through the regions featured in the core Pokémon video games, and we've now arrived where it all began: the Kanto region. Kanto, of course, was first explored in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue before soon being revisited in Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition. The region would then get a graphical upgrade in Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen and then a modern-day reimagining in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! Ash and Pikachu's epic journey began in the Kanto region as depicted in the first two seasons of Pokémon the Series, and Pokémon from Kanto were the stars of the Pokémon Trading Card Game's Base Set when the game was first released in 1999.

Give yourself a point for each question you get correct, then tally up your score to see how well you did at the end of the quiz. Good luck, Trainers!
