Pokémon: Johto League Champions is the name of the fourth season of the Pokémon anime. The 52-episode season showcases the adventures of Ash, Misty, and Brock in the Johto region, from Goldenrod City up to Cianwood City.

It originally aired as part of the 2001-2002 Kids' WB! Saturday morning line-up. The season began with A Goldenrod Opportunity, which originally aired on August 18, 2001, and ended with Machoke, Machoke Man!, which originally aired on September 7, 2002.

This is the second of three seasons that take place in the Johto region. It is preceded by Pokémon: The Johto Journeys and succeeded by Pokémon: Master Quest.


From the sprawling metropolis of Goldenrod City to the icy peak of Snowtop Mountain, the Johto region presents Ash, Misty, and Brock with exciting new adventures—along with a few familiar faces like their old friends Todd, Duplica, and Suzie! Johto’s rich past means plenty of Pokémon mysteries for our heroes to solve, and its exciting present means some tough challenges—Ash tackles three more Gyms, while handling competitions like the Pokémon Sumo Conference along the way.
