This year marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Pokemon Red and Green. The game introduced players to the Kanto region, while subsequent games allowed players to visit regions like Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Alola, and more. This year, The Pokemon Company will celebrate the proud history of the series, and the official Twitter account has asked fans which regions are their personal favorites. As a result, two regions from the games have been trending across social media: Kanto and Hoenn. It's no surprise to see the region that started it all remains a favorite, but it's interesting that the area from Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire has so many diehard fans.

Fans have a lot of fond memories of Kanto!
As much as I love Sinnoh, Kanto will always hold a special place in my heart. pic.twitter.com/hh5OOl4T8Y— Matthew Henderson (@ImMattHenderson) January 13, 2021
And then there's Hoenn, which introduced the series to Game Boy Advance.prevnext
Kanto and Johto are closely tied for many fans.
The Kanto Region is the best, then Johto. A port or remake of Heartgold/Soulsilver to the Switch would be the best thing to kickstart 2021.— John (@DesolationStar) January 13, 2021
It's hard to pick a favorite!
Hoenn is trending because it’s the best region 😌 pic.twitter.com/lgPjRJJTMv— Just penguin luigi (@Rigbo4) January 13, 2021
Lavender Tower is still haunting 25 years later.
I'll always have a fondness for the Kanto region, and Saffron City and Lavender Tower are two big reasons why. 🙂 https://t.co/JOdavdlO0T— Cade Rainier (@CadeRainier) January 13, 2021
