    wow this just made me realize that pokemon's never had a region with intertwining rivers to this degree. this is pretty exciting! I wonder if it could lead to water routes in a different way than RSE since that was just a region with half of it being a massive body of water. but I doubt it, although I think there will be some sort of reason for all those rivers besides it's real-life basis.

    There's a huge hole/cave on the upper right, islands on the southwest, and more areas on the southern mountains.

    I did the same thing in HGSS when the Frontier and western Johto area was still covered in clouds.

    Actually, rather than a hole/cave, it looks more like a giant tree to me. And you know what, the first thing that came to my mind when I looked at it was Yggdrasil.

    That sounds awesome! Maybe there would be post-game stuff in the other 'worlds' that this Yggdrasil takes us too.

    Exactly. The World Tree, Yggdrasil is what is looks like. Though the picture is not clear, you can see the green parts. The Legendary Pokemon here, too, seem to be based off Norse Mythology.

    This is similar to Sinnoh's Mount Coronet, the entrance to other worlds.
    That is, Dialga, Palkia and Giratina's Dimensions.


    I am pretty sure that Xerneas and Yveltal are based on two beings from Norse Mythology. Yggdrasil has a bird on the top, which is blind. Notice that Yveltal has blue eyes with white pupils... which makes it look blinder than an usual Pokemon...

    The trunk is home to four deer called Dáinn, Dvalin, Duneyrr and Duraţrór. It is said that their horns shape the upper branches of Yggdrasil, so that they can also feel like living on the top, they are probably jealous... See that Xerneas's horns are shaped like branches... These deers also had gems of the colours purple, blue, red and yellow, which Xerneas has on its horns...

    Also, there is a Dragon around the World Tree... this might be the third legendary...

    The region looks AMAZING. All those River water routes, it looks like the cities are spread out, so it'd be awesome if we had some long routes, and the cities don't like they go in a huge circular pattern! There also seems to be a lot of caves, forest, and mountains to explore.

    I agree, it would make it feel like more of an adventure instead of walking 100 steps and passing through a gate to make it to the next town.
    also, I would like it if cities and towns weren't just more spread out, but also bigger in size. casteli a city was nice for what I would like to call a town. and then make a city even bigger. but that's probably not going to happen.

    You are right. It does look like a giant tree. The pieces are fitting together perfectly!

Yeah, a few new things were added in BW2, but it still seemed like a lot of wasted potential to me. I just want this big sprawling city with tons of things to do.
    I agree, the only thing that Castelia was good for was the Game Freak HQ and giving me an Eevee or two. To be honest, I spend most time in post-game BW2 at Join Avenue, Virbank City (PokeStar Studios) and medal hunting. I really hope that we get a chance to collect more medals in X and Y.

    The coastal region, judging by the actual map of France, seems to be the combination of the English Channel and the Bay of Biscay. The mountainous region would be near the border of Italy and would contain a solid region. The mainland would be Western France. As far as that mountain on the far top right is concerned, perhaps we're going a little bit into Belgium territory.

    I wonder if the Gulf of Lion will be present on this map.

    Edit: Or that "Belgium Mountain" could be a tree. I could go with that.

    But I'm glad it that the environment looks very diverse. Can't wait for the official site to update with a much better image.



    It is. You can faintly see structures hidden under the clouds.

    I did something in Photoshop and "burned" out the clouds. Guess what?
    There's a huge hole/cave on the upper right, islands on the southwest, and more areas on the southern mountains.

    Wow that's a ton of rivers
    The region looks like it has a vague star shape to it

    Maybe all the "foreign" regions are distinct shapes :V

    To be fair though, you can kind of see a vague star shape in actual France.

    http://geology.com/world/france-map.gif

    I can see three defined points and two rough edges as the bottom part of the star.

    Edit: I do wonder if we can go to Corsica in the games. Maybe it will be like a battle island like Sinnoh had it.

    This is the first I've seen of the region map, it's certianly interesting. Very un-linear. Can't wait for a high resolution image of it! Anyone have a guess as to what the thing in the northernmost "point" is? Kinda looks like a lake on a mountain, but it's really hard to tell.

    It looks like there are atleast twelve cities/towns. I'm wondering if the map only shows Central or the whole region.

    I like it, more than Unova which comes in third of my favorite regions. Right now it's second for me behind Sinnoh but if the region has some interesting locations like a double helix shaped forest, then Sinnoh can take the welcome wagon to second place.

    After seeing the main page update saying the pokedex is separated into mountain, main and coastal segments, does anyone else think we might be able to pick where we start and travel these 3 segments in whichever order we choose, with scalable leveling? That would be a dream for me seeing as I prefer to replay the game over just training pokemon once completed.

    That's got me thinking; if the three character customization palettes are the only available ones, do you think we could start in three different areas depending on which one we choose?
    I think that would be a pretty nice idea.

    No way it shows the whole region. They never show it all at once.

    So the region is split into Central, Coastal, and Mountain regions. Really interested in the coastal region.
    To right the countless wrongs of our day, we shine this light of true redemption, that this place may become as paradise. What a wonderful world such would be...

    Putting the region and the map of France into Photoshop and blending it, it almost directly looks like the map of France, give or take a few chunks of land. The peninsulas line up fairly well. Also where Paris is on the French map, it directly lines up to that big circular white thing towards the upper region of the map.

    Also there seem to be dark clouds covering the lower part of the map as well as the upper-corners. So either post-game areas are going to be more varied, instead of just being all pushed to one side of the region, or the bottom half is covering the starting area.

    Tanned = Coastal
    White but not too white = Central
    Pale = Mountain

    How I would see this xD

    So, I think that floating little island that looks like it has a building might be Mount Saint Michel....

    I really like the fact that Miare City seems to be this big circular hub of Karos and rivers are even going into/out of? the city. Right now I can see 12 Cities/towns so I'm really hoping more are added that we just can't see. I really can't wait to see what lies beyond the southern mountains in post-game, so many possibilities!
