Then look it up.Well IDK how I missed that, but I did. And I still don't see it.
So after comparing the BW1 map and the new one I noticed that on the Western Mountains closest to the river seem to have a new cave (green dot) on it and on that water route between Undella and new city there seems to be a place to stop, the islands that many people have seen *cough Bolt cough*, since the shore along Undella bay is smaller in the BW2 map than it is in BW1, why else would they but a water route in Undella Bay...there's a land route between them.
Unlike you I'll back my statements with FACTS.
Number of Cities:
Kanto - 11
Johto - 9
BW Isshu - 15. BW2 Isshu - 18 (TBA)
Kanto (FRLG) - 391
Johto - 441
BW Isshu - 804. BW2 Isshu - TBA
Kanto - 28
Johto - 20
BW Isshu - 23 including Unovian Bridges which are considered as Routes, albeit not numbered.
BW2 Isshu - 27 with a possible 2/3 more.
* Note - Routes of Isshu are alot LARGER then a good majority of the Routes found in Johto/Kanto
With the small arguments of Routes aside there is NOTHING else indicating that Johto and Kanto can compare to Isshu in size.
BW Isshu had more Cities than Kanto and Johto. The Demograhpics of BW Isshu is more or less equal to Kanto/Johto combined.
Facts aside, by playing the games anyone with an ounce of sense will know that..
Kanto is a small Region only consisting of Celadon, Saffron as notable Cities.
Johto had Goldernod, Violet and Ecruteak with the remaining areas being horribly small and redudant after the Gyms.
BW Isshu had Castelia, largest City in the Poke-Universe by a distance.
Nimbasa home of Entertainment and Luxury, hosts the largest Demographical statistics.
Unova may have less Routes but that's more then made up for with them Routes being large and with 5 Bridges.
Despite the numerous additions to BW2 Unova you still think it's small, you haven't even played the games..yeah
- You seem to be struggling with the Regions, you should play the Games again and polish your knowledge :]

*Hoenn is where the start is*
Hoenn had 18 cities and 34 routes.
Sinnoh had 14 cities and 30 routes.
So yes, Hoenn and Sinnoh have more routes, but less towns, but even then I don't see how you can say its smaller than Sinnoh and Hoenn if you haven't even played B/W2 yet.
No sig. Deal with it.
Apologies if it has been answers or if I'm just an idiot, but where is the starting town's location on the new map? Top right or bottom left?
edit: Nevermind. I see that the person is in the bottom left. Don't know why I thought it was on the right.
Anyway, I like that they've made the first town an actual city now. Starting towns have always been pathetic in these games.
Disappointed with the gym leader pokemon so far. The more I look back at Ruby/Sapphire, the more I see how spoiled we are with their pokemon choices.

Kanto may have more Routes, but there is more to Regions then Routes alone.
There are Cities, Towns AND the size of each Route aswell as Demographics.
Please refrain from including Hoenn/Sinnoh as this is between Kanto/Johto and Isshu.
Whilst I agree that Sinnoh and especially Hoenn are extremely large.
Like you said we can't jump to conclusions having not played BW2.
Isshu is pretty damn big anyways :]
The only quirk we have was it felt incomplete, and with BW2 we are confident that won't be an issue.
You can't say for sure that the Map doesn't have another page or extension in BW2.
Besides there is alot of unused areas that was redudant to Isshu that is used in BW2.
E.g. SouthWest Isshu and Parts of Northern East Isshu.
So I disagree that the scale of the map gives us an accurate know-how on how big Isshu is.
Edit : You got there before me ;p

*Hoenn is where the start is*
So technically and logically you're wrong. Simply because although the bridges aren't numbered & that's due to them being bridge settlements -
- does not mean that they aren't a means of getting from A to B and therefore are considered Routes, just not named or numbered.
There is no need for trainers to be on the Route for it to be considered a Route.
The objective of a Bridge is for you to get from A to B, which is also the objective of a Route.
Hence, the inclusion of Unovian bridges in the Route count is perfectly fine.
*Hoenn is where the start is*
If you guys really want to compare which route is bigger, compute the total area of the route. In other terms, count the total squares.
Good luck with that.
Anyway, we're getting a bit off topic with this region size comparison.
Let's move on.
Okay, so does anybody have an idea what the dotted line from Castelia, through Driftveil City, to Twist Mountain could be? The underwater tunnel perhaps? That would make sense.
Eitherway, I'm quite entertained with this map. The mountain area looks thrilling. Quite a few new spots to go to. As for Shizui being the final gymleader.. -.- Not another water-type at the end...
Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-
"If I had my way in DP, Ash would've hit the league with: Pikachu, Ambipom (his to keep), Torterra (Grass/Starter), Lucario (Ace), Chingling (Cute), Bidoof (Water-type) and Heatran (Fire-type)."
Spoiler:- GenVII Starter names speculation:
The second line is meant to be sarcastic.. Though there was a random trainer with a Heatran at the Sinnoh League..

The passage from Driftveil to Icirrus could be a cave, rather than underwater though.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure people have read this already, but I don't know if this has been brought up. According to the PokeJungle's translation of the Famitsu review, one reviewer praises the new features including the stuff after completing the main story and the Fes Mission. It's interesting that it was really vague. I hope it's something big since it was given a '10'.
