    All the regions are based on a certain place. Kanto is obviously Kanto, Johto is Kansai, Hoenn is Kyushu, Sinnoh is Hokkaido and Unova is New York.

    We assume it's France because pretty much everything until now either screams France or is based on some specific recognizable area from France.

    I dont think the "creators" have said anything but there is bits in the trailer that point more to France than say other places. Like the Eiffel Tower and Versailles bits. I think they might have based landmarks on parts of this new lot but there is no actual ITS FRANCE from the guys at pokemon

    Ok I see now. I had no idea about those places in Japan and I can definitely see NY in Unova. Also watched the video again and saw Pikachu on the tower and everything else points to it so I guess it only makes since to assume France.

    There's the flowery country side as well, now my question is, what else can we infer from this? I mean there's some pokemon that are obviously influenced by New York's appearance and region, the garbage bag pokemon for example (New York is full of'em) there's bound to be a few animals/motifs from around Fance that will work into the pokemon. and Generally the best way to judge future occurrences is by past occurrences I'm thinking that this game will focus on France, specifically the region around Paris. Which means they're probably going to include the English channel (next region? 0.0 ) I'm thinking because France doesn't consist completely of mountainous regions (mainly rolling hills and flat plains, though they do have Alps and arid regions) this regions going to be generally flat, but you know GameFreak's going to incorporate some caves in there somewhere! I'm thinking catacombs is one, and another... well anyone's guess I'm thinking a slightly flatter region over all, but I still want to know a few themes for the caves

    No one thought the region was solely based on England, anyway, so that image is pretty much moot.

    Real life France has many ties with Africa....I wonder if that'll come into account at all..

    Also, I would like it if the people an places had more...character. Also, more culture. It'd be nice if the games felt a bit deeper.

    I'm not feeling the region at the moment. The city that seems to be based on Paris looks neat, but the desert looks really strange, like something from Pokemon Colosseum. It just doesn't look like something you'd see in the handheld games. The forest itself looks generic; the graphics made it look interesting at first glance, but then you remember that all forests in Pokemon tend to look alike anyway. Oh well, maybe there will be tons of water areas like in Hoenn. That would be swell.

    Almost everything we've seen of the region so far looks strange and out of place for a main-series Pokemon game, imo. Same with the PCs and NPCs. I'm feeling very apprehensive.

    Basically what I, Azran Flame and some others have been saying all the time.

    Every remarkable landscape we've seen from this new region can be traced back to France, which is the country GameFreak visited recently.

    The Tokyo Tower is a rip-off of the Eiffel Tower, after all (but honestly, I'm surprised you thought of that before this).

    Random thought: I wonder how much that trip cost? I mean, they probably stayed there longer than for just a few days, if they really wanted to get a feel of the country.

    quite honestly after seeing the trailer(again and again im drooling over the new games happens to me everytime) i ope they can somehow add a tropical rainforest in there cause that is one feature i would love to see in the main series.

    A tropical rainforest. In France.

    Well, it's not totally impossible, but... still...

    Just because it's based on France, doesn't mean it has to be exactly France. I mean is there a desert smack dab in the Downtown Manhattan? No. Or mountains in Queens/New Jersey? No.

    I know, it's just not that probable or likely. In my opinion they should have had one in Hoenn, it would've fitted the climate perfectly.

    But the last Japanese-based region was Sinnoh. Unova was based on New York, they're going for other countries as basis.

    I don't think they really had much of choice though. Kanto was on eastern japan, and Johto based on the western part. Hoenn Based on the southern island of japan, and Sinnoh based on the northern land mass to the north.
    Regardless of this fact, I love that theyre moving to new parts of the world. Anybody else notice how Hilda of B/W dresses a lot like the 'teeny-boppers' of america! (*luts!) ROFL Anyways, I'm really excited for this European version of pokemon, maybe this will boost UK sales, seeing as they didn't do to well with the release of B2/W2

    I think we can blame FIFA 13 for that.

    found this on tumblr... i doubt we will get this but whoever came up with this is very creative. This is just for conversation/speculation.

    "Like contests, musicals and movies, X and Y would have Pokemon Stadium: Live! as its alternative to normal Pokemon battling.

    Pokemon Stadium: Live! would be a televised, semi-scripted Pokemon battling tournament with a live audience and spectators that react to your move choices.

    In order to actually progress, however, you must ensure that you “keep the battle fresh” for the audience - do not use the same moves twice in a row (excluding rollout, thrash e.t.c.) and landing super-effective hits will increase something like ‘T.V. ratings’ or ‘audience excitement’.

    Sometimes, gym leaders from around the region may show up at Pokemon Stadium: Live! to challenge you, and beating them would increase (if used) T.V. ratings for the next battles starring you and your Pokemon.

    Also, your Pokemon may become “fan favorites” if you use them enough times."

    Sounds like they just fused Pokestar Studios and PWT.

    Yeah it does sound a lot like a hybrid of the two, but sounds somewhat appealing. Thoug I think gamefreak
