New Region Discussion Thread

Discussion in 'Pokémon Switch Discussion' started by RileyXY1, Mar 26, 2018.

    As this game is most likely a new generation, the games will most likely take place in a new region. What do you want the new region to be?

    I'd like the new region to be based on an area or country that stretched into the Arctic. To contrast with undergoing two rounds of tropical Poke-Hawaii.

    South America would be neat. Good variety of landscape, a lot of interesting culture, pretty underrated to much of the western and eastern world.

    Mexico would be make for great region. There could be a lot of great legendaries/mythicals based on Aztec Mythology.

    My second pick would be Greece.

    Italy or Greece (preferable Italy). The mythology about the greek/roman gods would ideally fit Sinnoh's mythology for a DP remake.

    Also every landscape except for a sandy desert can be covered.

    How about big and open for starters? This game could seriously use a massive increase in size and scale from the handheld games.

    As far as the cultural basis, I really don't care as long as it's more exotic than most of them are. Somewhere like Egypt, China, India, Australia, Greece, or South America would be great. Also wouldn't mind Canada.

    Hard to say what I would want from the new region outside of wanting it to be incredibly vast. I would like to see a Savannah, a swamp (which I think we already had in Diamond and Pearl), maybe a Tundra environment (but then again maybe not since I am sure if a Tundra/Arctic environment would look good in a Pokemon game unless it was an optional bonus location).

    I already got my Tropical Rainforest/Jungle environment in Sun and Moon, though I wouldn't mind seeing another just to see how they one up themselves.

    I like the Sri Lanka idea or Southeast Asia. I would like to see a flesh out jungle environment instead of the small one we had in Sun and Moon.

    Yeah, that's one thing I'd like to see, a legitimate jungle area. We got Lush Jungle in Alola, but that place is more like a glorified forest.

    I'm thinking it'll be based on a European country. Like England or Spain.

    I'd still like to see Southern France tbh.
    Aside from that another European country would be nice; Spain, Germany, Ireland, Greece, Poland...

    But I suspect the next region might be based on a region of China? Now that they have added Chinese translations to the Pokemon games they might also want to do a Chinese region some-when in the future...
    If they managed to shove a desert into northern France, Kyushu and New York, I'm pretty positive they can make up a desert no matter what place they decide to base the next region on.

    Scandanavia based region.

    Or one based om the medateranian sea.

    As I said on the other thread, I'm guessing Northwestern German states, specifically North Rhine-Westphalia, Lower Saxony, Bremen, Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein.

    Edit: Apparently I originally considered the amount of regional dex to be 405, so if we have five subregions as opposed to three I originally conceived, it can be 81 unique species per region, or less but divided into 70 unique per sub-region with 55 shared between.

    I would like see as base for new region west of USA. But according to sings and hints in S/M/US/UM, we see region based on Spain.

    A lot of the suggestions here are pretty good. I wouldn't mind a region with a lot of wilderness or mountainous regions. I feel like the next game should emphasize the exploration aspect a bit more.

    The one place I'd like to see as a region is Australia because it has plenty of diverse environments, wildlife, and history. Granted most of the Pokemon found there would be Poison type but I'm sure they could fill out the Pokedex with others.

    I will quote my post from the "Which real life place would you like to see as a pokemo region?" thread in the General Pokemon Discussion section.

    Back during the pre-release of Sun & Moon, there's been speculation and discussion around the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope.
    I know this doesn't mean anything. But I don't have any problem if it ends up being Canada.

    Personally, I'd really like to see a far Northern region. Alola just bored me, and I feel like a region like Iceland, Greenland, Sweden, etc. would be very refreshing. These regions are actually very beautiful, but are always underrepresented in media.

    If we can't have that, I'd take another western Europe locale or even Greece.

    Well, it does at least stretch into the Arctic. And if there were going to be new megas in this region, I would have hopes for Mega Beartic (with Water as secondary typing) happening. ^^
