Unova was confirmed to be New York, and as speculated for very good reasons the new region is based in Europe. Unless by plane or boat, I don't see the two being connected at all. Johto and Kanto were connected because the regions they were based on were also connected.
Plus the theory seems way to looked into, seeing as they were just used as statues and nothing more.
Also, I doubt GF would put emphasis and give a main plot point to a previous Pokemon and center its theme around one.
I would like to see some other aspects of Europe within the gme rather then just on France. I hope its a nice large European based region as UK/Spain/France/Other European countries have different habitats which could be incorparated in the game.

So... France. I'm guessing The Alps would fulfil the need for an Icey area? The south of France could be the generic beach area? And I'd like to see a couple of water routes that lead to an island based on the UK. Perhaps with a couple of cities - a grand London like one, and then perhaps a grand industrialised city based on the North? *shrugs* Just a few ideas.
If France is just the theme, then some of the 8 gym cities would be based Paris (as we already know), Marseille or Nice (which are southern coastal cities and in the Provence region), Canne (on the French Riviera and has the film festival) and a mountain city either based on the alps (Southwest France) or Pyrenees (Southeast France).
Thats only Four, so a city based on the region of Brittany (In the North) would be great and could act as the place to get to an island based on the UK (as someone else suggested) and Ireland. The three gym cities would be based on London, Liverpool (industrial) and either Dublin or a verdant Irish village.
I think that you will encounter the Alps a bit in the games,it would be awesome if the Alps served as the Victory Road!
I think the region may be more based on Europe as a whole (the scene with the tower things in the desert, with the cliffs, resembles the steppes in Spain).
Hmm... if they are basing the region off of France then I am betting that they go with a Celtic theme for many of the legendaries in it. Yes, it is slightly off of topic to say that, but it had to be said (plus the name of Xerneas fits the theory )
I'm pretty sure this region is based on France. It came to mind that Junichi Masuda just got back from a visit from Paris. Maybe he's getting a look at the scenery to enhance designs and such haha.

This looks like it will be strongly based on Europe, specifically France. That Eiffel Tower-like structure in the trailer gave it away.
Sounds like it's gonna be pretty nice, the change of geographical region in Unova was a welcome change. It's nice to see that Pokemon is "getting international", meaning, having their regions based on places other than Japan.

All right, so I was talking about the linearity issue on another forum. If you look at the games nowadays, you'll notice that they're constantly pointing out to you where you're supposed to be going, so the idea of having a linear region is kind of redundant in that regard. So I was thinking, what if they could take advantage of this to help less skilled players? On that note, I have an idea that could solve this linearity issue once and for all. What if they had some kind of Key Item like the Fame Checker that records conversations relevant to the storyline? Then whenever you get stuck, you could use it and it would give you a hint as to where to go next? For instance, if it were in BW2, it could record your conversation with Professor Juniper about her wanting you to talk to Drayden in Opelucid City. From there, all it would take is a quick look at the map to figure out how to get to Opelucid City and then you know exactly where you need to go. They could also do the same thing with sidequests, although hints toward sidequests would be in a separate section since they're not important towards the storyline.
Seeing as the region is foreign: I believe it will have similar gameplay aesthetics as Black & White did (Meaning no national pokemon).

They were excluded from Unova because GF was going for a "fresh new beginning for everybody" theme, making all the Pokémon in the Dex completely new for old players and newcomers alike — and that theme is over, as B2W2 made clear.
