    Josiah is your favorite

    Orangutans aren't from Africa (and Hihidaruma doesn't really look like one) and neither are Tapirs (and Minnu doesn't really look like one.)

    Plus, when has the design origin of Pokemon ever changed a games location? Kangaskhan is a Kangaroo and Kanto is based on Japan.

    Its all of Issu, and the borders are clearer then the sky.

    Araragi translates to "Yew", which is another tree, from what I've seen reported. So you can bank on her name being Professor Yew.

    Hihidoruma is a yeti, btw.

    Good observation BUT Drowzee and Hypno are classified as Hypnosis Pokemon. They are similar, youre right but its loses the pinkish colors, the other two dont have floral patterns and the jem in its forehead is also gone. So i dont think it is plus it would be pretty useless.

    Gear is a pretty cool Pokémon, honestly, am I the only one that likes it? He's cute, although I don't understand why Plus and Minus are his two abilities.

    I like him :O

    I believe it's at the bottom right corner.

    And; Don't be fooled by the massive, open central area of the map. There seems to be a ton of hidden villages/cities in the forest on the right and on the top left corner. Also, a good portion of the right side is covered by text (although you can see a snowy mountain).

    He's probably right. The first map that came out for Sinnoh showed only the lower left part of Sinnoh, it hardly showed Eterna City. This is probably not all of Isshu, this might be a huge region.

    I'm not being fooled by it, and I know there must be some truth to what I'm saying. The areas were gyms can be put are slim, and the areas behind the text can be seen to an extent, and nothing seems to be there. Unless the gyms are out, there seems to be no logic for this region to look so barren, there must be some sort of battle based dungeon system to have reason to travel around. And ******** on the region being only partially seen. Its perfectly cut off on all 4 sides, and unless you travel between 2 parts, this is it.

    Here's my two cents on the revealed info:

    Isshu: The map is interesting, and quite a bit of it is covered by clouds, so the full extent isn't shown. I wonder if those are event exclusive areas/Battle Frontier? I don't see what the problem is, there are plenty of areas for gyms. Also, is that the Pokemon League in the top left?

    Professor Araragi: Inevitable really

    Zorua being event: meh, that seems odd for a seemingly non-legendary to be an event.

    Chiramii: Much better than Bidoof, I can see it evolving once or twice

    Munna: lulz its a baby psychic elephant

    Gear: My first impression was WTF, but now I see it as having great potential. I actually see it evolving twice and changing dramatically with its evolutions, kind of like Remoraid -> Octillery

    Mamepato: lulz a pigeon, I can see it evolving once or twice

    Hihidaruma: I laugh every time I see it. I can see it being a pokemon w/o an evolution

    Shimama: Not much to say, I see it evolving once.

    Meguroko: It may be a crocodile, but it isn't very intimidating. Atleast the type combo is unique at this point. I can see it evolving once.

    In the one screen shot of the bottom screen move selection thing, what does the button circled in yellow do? Do we even know?

    I'm not sure that map is the entire region either - if you look at the right hand side, you can see what appear to be whirlpools or waves. Though somewhat shrouded by cloud (it sort of looks like it could be cloud), on further inspection, there is a difference in how they are drawn.

    Nope, I like Gear too. Plus and Minus, those are the abilities of Plusle and Minun right?
    I don't see what it's got to do with Gear.

    I hope it's not the whole region. There's gotta be more. To the right perhaps.
    And I'm seeing another mountain at the right side of the map. So that makes two mountain ranges.
    The dessert is way bigger than in R/S/E.

  13. Actually I'm kinda glad Reshiram isn't Ice/Dragon like I heard. Looks like Reshiram is Fire/Dragon like I originally thought a week ago since he has the whole "holy white purifying fire" look to it. Sacred Fire would be a great attack for it if it wasn't exclusive to Ho-oh.

    Razmos I have this sponge..

    Really, you don't? Gears require other gears to move. It's obviously meant to be a teamwork Pokemon like Minun and Plusle are.

    For all you guys worrying about the map and amount of towns/ gyms etc... This was one of the first sinnoh maps revealed and it shows about as much as this Isshu map shows us....

    As a note, WHF will have a video(most likely the trailer) of the games. And I'm sorry but unless there's a part accessible only by boat, this seems to be it. No off the beat into the borders routes, no caves leading to nowhere, nothing.

    How many cities does there need to be to hold gyms? On the parts that we see, There's at least six different cities, Not mentioning the various single building scattered around. I think there's plenty of places they can place the gyms.

    Hihidaruma ftw. For some reason he is awesome to me. In fact, I like all of them except Mamepato. I find the thing hideously ugly.

    ...Is Munna a prevolution of Drowzee?

    Plusle and Minun fit together, just like Gears fir together. At least that's how I see it.

    Ok, I didn't think of it that way.
    But, Gear is already two gears, so why should it need help?
    And Plusle and Minun are always together in the anime. So I don't see Gear needing any other pokemon than itself.
