Sevii Islands

    What did you think of the Sevii Islands from FireRed and LeafGreen? Which one was your favourite? Would you ever like to see these islands come back in future games?

    I liked Seven Island the most since it had the Trainer Tower and the ruins with the Unown to the south of Sevault Canyon. I liked training in the canyon itself for extra experience too.

    I absolutely loved them, and I was very disappointed that we never saw them in Let's Go games. My favourite island is the sixth one, as it is large and has a number of cool locations (shame Altering Cave is ultimately useless). I also really like One Island, since you can access Mt. Ember from it, and Seven Island, for the canyon, the ruins and the Trainer Tower. Overall, the Sevii Islands were a great addition to Kanto.

    I liked the Nanashima (Sevii Islands) since they offered a challenging post-game, what with the new Pokemon that existed there plus the Rocket-dan subplot on Five Island. I thought that it was quite a shame that two of the islands were exclusive to events, though.

    I liked most of them like Four Island because we could breed Pokemon there and Five Island because Resort Gorgeous was nearby and making money there was easy. But some of the areas like Altering Cave and the Tanoby Ruins were the most pointless places.

    I liked the Sevii Islands as they were great additions to the essentially nonexistant postgame of the original games. My personal favorite would be Five Island due to Resort Gorgeous, Lost Cave, and Memorial Pillar. All of those places felt memorable to me as locations.

    I agree about the first two locations on Five Island since one of them was good for earning a lot of money quickly, while the other had rare items and an interesting puzzle. But the Memorial Tower part of the island seemed pointless to me since there wasn't anything special there aside from the grave site of Iwakichi (Tectonix).

    Seven Island was the best. Trainer Tower, Tanoby Ruins to fill my collection addiction, rare Pokemon

    shoz999 Do you wanna try a good Tapu Cocoa? My treat.

    Come back? It should be a permanent feature in any Kanto-focus remakes, sequels, games in-general. Such a memorable location shouldn't just be shafted like that. I'm glad the Pokemon Adventures gave the islands a lot of love, the only thing I wanted in the end was to see even more of those islands considering how rich and diverse each island could be in terms of location and characters.

    I've always had a love-hate relationship with the Trainer Tower. On one hand, it's easier to complete compared to the Battle Tower, but on the opposite hand it's very time consuming, and the reward for getting to the top of the tower is unimpressive.

    Remakes should take from the example of the Sevii Islands and have expanded areas to visit. Hoping the Gen IV remakes do this

    If ORAS and LGPE are any indication, probably not. I'm actually really upset that LGPE didn't give us the Sevii Islands since that seemed like the obvious thing to do.

    I remember thinking that HG/SS would include these islands or at least expand on the concept by having a new archipelago to explore, but of course Game Freak didn't do that. I think that at this point they're against adding new mini-regions to their game remakes.

    The Sevii Islands were cool and I remember thinking that they were the Orange Islands from the anime at first lol. I think my favourite Sevii Island was One Island because of the beach to the south that had hidden items and because of the spa where you could heal your Pokemon in the hot water.

    I remember thinking that the Nanashima (Sevii Islands) were based on the Orange Archipelago, although now I know that they're based on the Izu and Bonin Islands in real life.

    My favorite Sevii Island is Birth Island because its triangle shaped and is a rare place to get to because you need an event item. My 2nd favorite island would have to be One Island because it has Kindle Road which is a good grinding locale.

    Apparently Birth Island's shape is based on a real-life island in the Pacific Ocean that's triangular too. Also Navel Rock which is another event-exclusive island is also based on another real-life island that is famous for its albatross population, which explains why Lugia and Houou (Ho-Oh) could be found there in the games.

    Birth Island had that black triangle puzzle that awoke Deoxys right? I've never tried it myself but I've seen videos and it looks like a lot of fun.

    Four Island was my favorite isle because of the improved day care center where we could breed Pokemon but I remember it being really hard to get an egg to appear there although that could just be me being impatient.

    One thing that stands out about that island was Kanna's (Lorelei's) house. I heard a rumor that the number of dolls that you can find inside her home depends on the number of times that you defeat the Pokemon League, although I've beaten it at least 40 times and the number of dolls doesn't seem to increase, so I think it's a false rumor.
