    Well done detective!
    so the bottom town is the starting point. (almost definitely)

    Especially since there seems to be a forest area near by too.
    Generally a safe bet that the starting town isn't far off.

    Has anyone figured out the etymology for the region's name?

    Lumiose could be derived from 'luminous' and 'grandiose'.
    We don't have names for other cities so we really can't say the region's naming theme so far, but I can't quite find the inspiration for "Kalos".

    About Lumiose city, doesn't the name suggest that there will be something light-related to it? Is there a certain city in France famous with lights or something?

    Kalos is Greek for "beautiful"

    Yes that is a Female Dino Charge Red. It's a FanFic thing

    Yeah, the starting town/city is most certaintly the one on the south. Also by looking at the pic with the roselia fountain, behind it is the gym symbol, I wonder what type it will be.

    Archaic from Bulbapedia said this:

    "The choice of the name Kalos for the region is very interesting. The word kalos (καλός) is Greek, and means "beautiful". Kalos inscriptions were a form of epigraph found on Attic vases and graffiti in antiquity, mainly during the Classical period from 550 to 450 BC, and typically had erotic connotations."

    EDIT: Kinda ninja'd :P

    Karos= Kairos?

    Greek God that symbolised opportunity?

    Eidt: the others are probably more right with their answers =P

    you're right, indeed, you can see at the left picture that the road goes down, and on the right picture, you can see the road goes down, but if that's route 3 already, then, i don't know what route 1 / 2 are... and, it means that there must be a place in the forest, since it's not logical a route would split, so the forest must be a place to discover too... between the forest and the possible starting town, there's only a small part for a route, so i still don't get it...

    so it's possible we could have rather short routes? :/

    Paris is known as the City of Lights, or La Ville Lumičre, so it makes sense that they would name the main city with the Eiffel lookalike Lumiose City . It gets its name from the fact that the Age of Enlightenment started in France.

    I could see route 1 being right after the starter town and route 2 being the bridge connecting to the forest? They are rather short indeed but the first routes usually are:P And the map artworks never have them precisely proportioned, so they could be bigger than they seem.
    Then I'm thinking route 4 could be the labyrinth thing (or then it's something of it's own), because you can get to route 5 from Lumiose City (according to the trailer, if the big number "5" tells anything).

    Paris = The city of lights
    Lumiose City = Luminous; grandiose

    Makes sense.

    I really love that there's a snow area again, I just pray that if it does have a gym that it won't be number 7

    The new map style doesn't really reflect the in-game size of the routes/cities/towns.
    The Unova map have shown short routes as well such as Route 7. Actually, you can't even identify that it was on the map.

    Directly above Lumoise City, the town looks like it is based on autumn leaves or red leaved tree, with a giant tree with a clock face on it in the center.

    Also top left hand corner notredamn cathedral?

    I think it is the top one of those two that you showed. It looks like it fits better for me.

    Yeah so do I, I don't think they've included the statue on the map, wherever it is.

    Which leads us to think if seasons still exist in this game...
    Deerling might only be able to change form based on location if it's removed.
