    Why take more time out of the League to show those two? We've already seen Alder, and it's not like Marshal is someone people are dying to see in the anime (if it were Grimsley on the other hand, that would be a different story~).
    Nageki is Sawk if I'm not mistaken.

    because there's not much there in game. It's probably in the same location they just threw a random city around it

    presumably they find the city idea a bit more interesting. Maybe they have some story ideas for it?

    Probably not. It will probably not be in a city but on the outskirts or something, with stadiums, a Pokemon Center and an athlete's village. Didn't Lily of the Valley have a whole populated island but the Sinnoh League was in one area?

    breathe it in, i'm gonna shine. it's my moment, i'm going to fly.

    Likely because in both gen 4 and 5, the Pokemon League in the game is just in an area named "Pokemon League", so the anime had to come up with a name for the city. Likewise, the gen 2 league was held in the same place as the gen 1 league in the games, so they had to move it to some made-up place in the anime.
    Both the gen 1 and 3 anime have the league in the named city it's in in the games, though.

    As for the name, Higaki City is named after the higaki pattern, matching the name scheme for all the in-game cities, which are named after similar patterns in the Japanese version.

    Nope, the Unova Leage will be held on a giant Throh. LOL just kidding, Higaki City is a anime only location

    At least Sinnoh's PL takes place in an island and the anime it takes place on the Valley of the Lily Island so that makes sense.
    The Unova League in the games it lies in a mountainous region so do you think Higaki City will be up in the mountains?

    Most likely yes. COnsidering they meet Virgil on a mountain it's probably about them climbing up to the league.
