Lumiose City keeps Pierre L'Enfant's Paris designs. I like that.

So user here said it would be full of little rivers, I love it.
Here's what I understood so far :3
I'm really in love with this region, it looks stunning.
Loving the region, nice wide array of areas.
I wonder what parts will be post-game? I'm sort of inclined to think that the east will, if only because it's on the other side of what looks to be the league. Also, I'm assuming that the town at the bottom of the map is the starting town because the route from the blue-building town leads directly into the forest and the forest is likely to be early. The town in this image matches up with the one just before Lumiose, which would also make the route just after the forest Route 3.
I'm gonna bet that there is a legendary Pokemon just past the Stonehenge area.
But the region get cut unexpectedly on the right side, maybe it's connected to an older region we can visit, like RSC? Or maybe we haven't seen the whole map?
Anyone have any idea what that purple structure is in the water in the eastern part of the map? Looks like it has a pokeball pattern on the front of it, but I could be wrong.

I can see how it looks small compared to some people, since the other region maps have every thing so compressed, while this one looks like it has everything spread out. There looks like there are a lot of interesting places though. Also, I don't see a direct route which is pretty exciting!
So where do we think the Elite 4 is then?
I think its that castle on the mountain next to the starting town and Victory road is just underneath it
I feel like looking they're basing the layout of cities in the regions more on the real world recently. Lumiose City is clearly where Paris is located in real life, but there are other things.
The island Castle structure to the North East of the stone circle is geographically placed in the exact same place as Mont Saint-Michel, and also looks extremely similar. I'm now wondering if they've done this with other real-life French locations and given them counterparts in Kalos.
Right now, I'm trying to pinpoint where the starting town could be...
The town with the Roselia fountain comes off of Route 3, and most likely contains the first Gym (Given that the Pokemon League Logo that appeared in Unova is featured here in the trailer). I believe this town is probably the same as the one to the South-East of Lumiose on the map, with the green-roofed houses, the flowers and the fountain at the center. This is also supported by the small lake to the South of it, which appears on the map and in the trailer, and also the wall surrounding the town.
From this, we can assume that the starting area is to the South, with the player having to venture through the forest to reach Route 3. This is supported in the new batch of screenshots, as a trainer outside a forest entrance says "When two Trainers' eyes meet, a Pokemon battle must begin!", which is basic early game stuff which you're normally told when fighting trainers on the early routes, normally Route 2 or it's equivalents.
From there, Route 1 and 2 are most likely separated by the regal-looking building with the blue rooftop, and Route 1 may be the small, straight pathway leading North from the tiny town with what looks like one single, connected building more than a town.
Of course, most of this is speculative, but I'm pretty confident that Route 3 is where I pointed it out to be on the map.
EDIT: Damn, Aleh ninja'd me on this particular point, and did it with a lot more style than I did. Oh well xD
What I find odd is that the area that I pointed out as probably being the starting town doesn't really look like a town at all, as I pointed out.
What I'm thinking here is that instead of starting off in a regular town like most of the main series games, you'll start out more like how you did in Pokemon Ranger: Shadow of Almia, and the starting "town" is more a campus, consisting of the student accommodation and the school building itself (Which I'm thinking may well be the building that had the statue with Golurk, Palpitoad and Eevee outside that we saw in the first trailer), connected by Route 1.
That's just what it looks like to me, but of course I could be completely wrong. It'd certainly be interesting though.

It's so big compared to Unova and the canvas/pastel style map really makes it pretty. I think the starting home will take place in the south were those two buldings are and we'll head directly to the northwest to enter Lumiose City. Also I think that's an ice type gym at the northeast whereas the mountaintops could home Yveltal and the lone tree could be Xerneas. I wonder where the third legend is?
I think it's worth noting that this region seems to have ALOT of rivers that seldom interlock to each other.
Could this mean the ability to surf to any location in the region like our days hoenn??

the region is shaped as an irregular star says the official website.
Speaking of the water, there appears to be no waterfalls on any of the rivers. Could this be the end of the Waterfall HM?
Also, you see that blue and red castle east of Lumiose city? That will surely be the pokemon league, I'm calling it now. It even has its own Victory Road.
On the Far Right....Im not sure but Is that pokemon's version of STONHENGE???
