It is surely interesting that the Kalos region is described as being star shaped, while France is described as being a hexagon. However, I do see just the most vague star shape when I look at France. I wonder if the creators saw that as an inspiration.

I love the fact that this region's symbol draws inspiration from the country it's based on.
Not only that it is based on the French flag and takes the region's shape, but I also like that each color represents the sub-regions.
I also like that Central Kalos is shaped like the Eiffel tower.
It's a small detail, but it's genius.

Even though the skates have been confirmed already. If you look back on the first trailer of the male protag skating you can actually hear him skating.
I hope they don't get rid of the bike cause they are much faster then skates, plus we've always got a bike. I'm hopping these skates don't replace the bike but instead they'll just be a new feature added onto the running shoes that we receive.
It'll be cool if are home town is the one furthest north that way the giant Lumiose City is pretty early in-game.
I'm rather interested in the Stonehenge structure can't wait to see what GF is gonna do with it. As well as the strange pink thing with what looks like a pokeball on it jetting out from the river on the east part of the region. I've heard a rumor from a few that it might be the thing that evolve's Eevee into Sylveon, still it's just a rumor might even be a Gym but it is rather strange looking.

So... is said that this region has a "star shaped" form.. so, why dont we look for 5 important locations in this map to actually form a pentagram. maybe thats the whole point of showcasing a determinate but not THAT visible form for this region.
Im thinking on these 5 "structures" that probably will joint into some sort of mecanism to execute the "gang's" evil plot... maaaybee?
This is quite unlikely, and I don't know if it's been mentioned, but could the large fairytale-style castle to the right of the map be a nod to Disneyland Paris?
New Misty sig on the way!

I'm sure someone has mentioned it already, but in the new trailer when the male character sits on a bench by the Roselia fountain in Lumiose City, there appears to be a Gym there.
Only speculating this because of the giant Gym symbol on the side of a building which all could be located in a park. So it certainly reassures my belief in a new Grass-type Gym!
Added, I think the starting town will be in the Coastal sub-region, judging by the blue pentagons on the starters' info screenshots. But that's just my theory.

I wonder when they will show us some in-building footage. With all the awesome things we've already in the field, I'm so curious of how a PokéCenter, a café or even a regular house will look on the inside! =D
