Episode count of PM2019 by region

So I posted a comment yesterday about how so many episodes were taking place in Kanto and that certain regions were very underrepresented.

I was shocked to find out that over half of the episodes that have aired so far have taking place in Kanto, which is odd..

Episode listings by region

Kanto: 1, 2, 3, 6, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 26, 29, 30, 33, 34, 35, 38, 40, 41, 47, 49, 54, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62

Johto: 9, 32, 39, 53

Hoenn: 7, 22, 31, 36, 41, 63, 64

Sinnoh: 8, 24

Unova: 14, 48, 65

Kalos: 25, 56

Alola: 37

Galar: 4, 5, 12, 13, 27, 28, 42, 43, 44, 45, 50, 55

Unknown region: 46

Technically EP1 took place in Kanto but it’s more of a flashback of the OS episode and Pikachu’s backstory so idk if I should add it to this list!

So every time new episodes come out, let’s update this list and see how much attention each region manages to get in this series.

So does Ash and co. going to another region completely override the Kanto appearance? Because if you want to be technical, ep 31 was just as much a Kanto ep as a Hoenn ep, if not more so.

We really should separate non vermilion and vermilion Kanto episodes imo

I agree, since going to different cities within Kanto it's not the same that staying at the lab's same city.
Also, I think it's fine to count any episode where they go to a different region as that region's episode and not Kanto, since they always start in Kanto or have a brief part there before traveling anyways.

Let's see..

Vermilion City - 2, 3, 6, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 26, 29, 30, 33, 35

Saffron City - 34

Pewter City - 38

I've clubbed 10 (Dragonite Island) and 35 (Pikachu Outbreak Area) under Vermilion only because we never really got an area so I'm gonna assume it's in and around Vermilion only.

Could just put that under misc/anime exclusive locations tbh

Oh BTW does that Pikachu jealous episode count as Pallet Town or Vermilion City? Probably Vermilion because we see Pallet at the end only.

Dragonite Island most certainly isn't Vermilion though. I'd make a separate category for anime only locations like that one or unspecified locations too.

I think you could put it under Pallet Town, since that's where Pikachu and Mr Mime are heading the whole episode and where it ends. Either that or under that separate category.

I would say Pallet town or other because the majority of the episode is spent en-route with the 2 already having left Vermilion.

Also 26 should definitely not be Vermilion considering half of it takes place on Slowpoke island and I don't think we get confirmation on where the Magicarp tournament is held.

They've mostly been to Kanto, which makes sense since it was where the franchise began. Galar is in second place, since it's the newest region. Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh have been visited multiple times as well, since those regions are the most nostalgic for fans. Unova, Kalos and Alola have each only been visited once so far, since they're still relatively new, but hopefully there will be more visits soon.

I really hope this thread stays updated! Would be interesting to look back at it by the end. Seconded that Vermilion episodes should be separated from other Kanto locations/misc. unidentified anime-exclusive places like Dragonite Island though. Just for good measure.

Just curious though, if we hypothetically got an episode in the future with pretty much equal focus on two regions (for example, half in Johto, half in Sinnoh - not the same as just going from Vermilion to another region), how would something like that be categorized?

Also... this made me realize we haven't seen Unova in 25 episodes. It probably doesn't mean anything, but it is... worrying.

So, assuming we count lab episodes separately from Kanto episodes, the episodes for each region would be something like this:

Lab: 11, 16, 17, 20, 21, 23, 29

Kanto: 01, 02, 03, 06, 15, 18, 19, 30, 33, 34, 35, 38

Johto: 09, 32, 39

Hoenn: 07, 22, 31, 36

Sinnoh: 08, 24

Unova: 14

Kalos: 25

Alola: 37

Galar: 04, 05, 12, 13, 27, 28

Miscellaneous: 10, 26

It is kind of debatable where one draws the line between a lab episode and a Kanto episode. My criteria were that most of the episode is spent at the lab or doing lab related activities, and the duo don't have a stated travel destination (like Vermillion gym or the Ivysaur outbreak) during that episode.

hmm the reason I justified EP31 as being a Hoenn episode instead of a Kanto due to the fact that the main objective/plot of the episode took place in that region.

Thanks everyone for the support. Let’s work together and update this post on a regular basis, hopefully we get more episodes in the other regions soon..

In my honest opinion, there’s no difference between the Kanto episodes that take place in Vermillion City and those that take place elsewhere in the region. At the end of the day, it’s just more Kanto pandering to me

If you guys want get into the details go ahead, it’ll be nice. I am just making a general guide for us to follow..

I don't see how it's Kanto pandering just because that's where the hub area is? The lab is an anime exclusive location anyway so I'm not even sure what's even being pandered too. I know the Pokemon Community is coded hate Kanto refrence on site at this point but this instance just confuses me
