    Notice the top-most town with the big orange tree that appears to have a clock on it or something similar? It seems to have little houses that look suitable for a player house and a rival house.

    WHAT IF we actually start out in that town, and the town at the very bottom with the red building is the professor's lab?


    Game Freak could be showing off the new 3D graphics engine by starting us out in a town with a huge tree (which could make for an impressive showcase of visuals and camera angles) then having us cinematically fly to the professor's lab on the other side of the region. I don't know, maybe the professor sends a bird Pokémon to come get you or something. Of course, the cinematic wouldn't show the entire trip across the region, but it would be cool seeing a 3D scene of our character fly off into the distance from the tree town and then landing in the red-roof town.

    A radical departure from anything Game Freak has ever done, but this is the first game they've developed in which this is possible. They may very well want to showcase their new 3D engine in the beginning of the game, and I don't see them being able to do that very fluently if we were to be starting off in that red-roof town.

    I don't necessarily think this is what is going to happen, but it's an interesting possibility.
    This sounds awesome. It will be a great way to show of what they can do with the 3DS. Kind of like the little stunt with the cliff top in BW2

    I really like the look of the stonehenge place.

    Im curious to know what that place is, especially the three statue things in the middle. Legendary Origins maybe ?

    Although it probably doesn't mean anything there is also 18 small stones around it; possible hint at extra type ? <--- JK

    So I imagine that the other cities aren't going to have the camera angles be as wild and crazy as what they'll be like in Lumiose City. Kind of like how Castelia was the major city in Unova. Hopefully some other towns will have special niches and more awesome bench views.

    I think they will the bit where the trainer sits down on the bench the angle changes and thats not Lumiose thats another town you can see the roselia statue in the town further down we have also seen different angles on routes in trailers

    With all the ruins and everything, I'm definitely thinking another region filled with myths and legends like Sinnoh.

    It's Carnac, not Stonehenge. It's a town based on Carnac.

    Go to Google Maps. Go to that location and you'll find a town in that location called Carnac. Then Google 'Carnac Stones' you'll find those structures. It's not like the structure of Stonehenge is limited to just England. There's also the fact that it would take away an epic location from a future UK region. So yes, it is Carnac since that makes the most sense.

    Also the row of stones in front of the town is reminiscent of the straight path that the Carnac stones take. So there.

    I do hope so, I'm just worried that they'll focus everything on Lumiose and the other towns will seem to pale in significance. Im super stocked about the animation as you get to the Pokemon league, like the camera going POV as you emerge from the dark Victory Road and then you see this huge castle and then the camara pans all the was around it while it climbs and then you can see the whole region behind it! I'm thinking the fire pillars are going to be at the league or maybe a fire gym, but it seems really extravagant for a gym, but I'm probably wrong.

    You know what I want? An actual graveyard. That or a Ghost gym set as a Graveyard, with a Vampire Gym Leader! I don't know why, it's just popped into my head haha!

    Yes but Carnac has about 300 standing stones. Stonehenge has 17. Kalos has 18. So it seems more like Stonehenge, in the area where Carnac is in France. Love the speculation of this hinting at a new type though!

    Guys I suggest you to have a look at this analysis of the map, Really well done. If you look at the bottom right route 2 and 3 are found so maybe the starting town is around there..

    Wasn't Grimsley's design based on a vampire? But I do want a Graveyard!, but they like to favour towers more than anything.

    This seems to confirm most peoples theories on here, although some still think the very top town maybe the start but I personally agree with this theory.

    Does anyone think we might be able to visit other 'worlds/dimensions', like with the Distortion World in Platinum?
    I can see it happening, especially if they are going with the whole Norse theme, since the Yggdrasil connects all nine worlds. Obviously not extensively, like not a region-sized area.
    I also think that maybe, the place you visit could be different depending on your version; forest/nature related place for Xerneas and a dark one for Yveltal.

    Are the stones in the design of Stonehenge? No. They're not. Just because it's a round megalithic structure, everyone just assumes that it's Stonehenge. Look at the fact: it's in the location of Carnac; it has megalithic structures that run in a straight line just like the Carnac Stones; there's quite obviously a town in the stones which leans more towards Carnac than Stonehenge. I seriously can't be the only one seeing this.

    The beginning of BW2 was good, there was plenty of variety in the first few routes, but then after that, the variety was pretty bad in mid game and tons of Pokemon were unobtainable until ridiculously late in the game. Hopefully XY won't have that problem.

    Love everything about this! The only thing, I'd think there is an ice town (the one they say is a city) and the windmill ice place is actually a city. Just my own thoughts

    My thoughts exactly!

    Touche.

    I really hope they mix up the gym order so it feels fresh. Ice, Dragon and Water need a break or at the very least not be 7th or 8th. I always liked the idea of having Dragon first. All it would mean is that your starters STAB would not very effective, forcing you to rely on your whole team, a worthy and fair challenge imo.

    You're not the only one; don't worry. I don't think the number of stones matters. The maps are always simplified; they're not going to sit and draw every little stone in the town. Besides, Stonehenge is in the U.K., while Carnac is in France. Kalos is based on France and not the U.K., so logic dictates that it is Carnac.
