    We probably won't be exploring the entirety of those rivers and mountains. The only discernible path I can make out is one giant circle through the region.
    Just because a game isn't open-world doesn't make it 'dumbed down.' Don't get me wrong, I always enjoyed exploring new regions, but it's not as if Pokemon ever allowed anyone to go anywhere except towns, routes and caves. That's not it being 'dumbed down,' that's it not having open-world exploration. Open-world exploration is a fun thing, but there are plenty of fun games that don't have it, so not having it doesn't make a game automatically worthless.

    I would kinda like to see an open-world Pokemon game, though.

    Political figures city naming a go! Facista City would be an amazingly controversial thing I want happening, and it would be a lingual pun.

    Otherwise, I just dunno how routes are gonna work on that in-game map. If its just artwork, and the map is different sure, but otherwise I'm curious. Looks like its gonna involve a lot of caves, but that ain't a bad thing. Gamefreak knows caves, they proved that much in B2W2. Also, thanks to the boxarts, 2 locations for legendaries again? Last time we had that it was oh, GSC, and we all know how that ended up being solved. I wonder if they've got something major up their sleeves.

    The region is apparently called Karos which is based on France(surprise surprise). Miare City is the supposed main city.

    Come on. Are you really basing this off of a tiny, blurred map of the region? I mean, really. We have no idea how the path will go.


    If this Maire (?) city is bigger than Castelia I really hope that they fill it with things to do. Castelia was nice and all, but after the first go round there were few reasons to return, which was a shame considering how pretty it was. Hope they work in some of Paris' sites too (catacombs, please!).

    I see France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Andorra... Hopefully they can incorporate some other countries' cultures into the region.

    Europe is really charming, so it will be cool to see the general atmosphere of this whole area.

    I don't see any of the other Countries actually, just France and maybe Monaco. Though I do agree Europe is a really charming place and will provide a really good atmosphere for a pokemon game. I wonder where Yggdrasil is going to be though...

    I want a clear/bigger image of Karos, it's to tiny to see anything. All I see is green and mountains. >.<

    Yes, the southern and eastern ones. There are no big mountain chains in the west, but I like they added them in the Karos map. I like mountainous areas in Pokemon.

    Karos? I wonder why they picked that name.

    Also, is it just me, or does the art style of the map look... different? It looks like something more out of a PMD game to me, with all the bright and blocky colours.

    Probably been mentioned, but from what I can make out from the scan, Karos seems to be just... France. Like, not a map of Paris, or a specific region or whatever, just most of France. Granted, I'm no expert on French geography so I may miss my mark, and this may just be a part of Paris on the bank of the Seine. But it appears to be most of France, which is cool. Looks like we aren't getting the parts of England across the Channel like so many wanted. Aye, looks like there's barely any water routes at all, except around the coast. I don't see any islands, but again, the scan isn't too great.

    And Karos is the Japanese name. Maybe it'll carry over, but we'll learn the localized name in a few days.

    It's interesting that you mention islands. I was wondering if they might include the channel islands. I know they aren't French but in terms of the geography, they are much closer to France than they are to the UK.

    Can't wait to have a look at a clearer shot of the regions map, I somehow feel it is not that detailed this time though, probably not to spoil the areas : )

    Yeah, I mean I'm still holding on and hoping against hope, but I didn't see any in the ocean area of the map. It just looks like open sea.

    There are quite a few rivers in France though. So we'll probably have that too.

    If you look at the Region Map..it looks very very very similar to France..

    I take it Bolt will be happy it's not a circle. Looks packed.

    I'd agree. I think things seem a lot more, eh, 'random'? Can't find the word.
    I actually like it. Also think the possibility of islands is quite high.

    The map picture looks like it's ingame to me.

    It's nice to finally have an official name for the region; maybe now people will stop calling it PokeFrance or whatever that weird nickname was lol. I like the map of the region although it's kind of hard to see all the landmarks. Karos at least looks more interesting than Unova in my opinion.

    The only thing that slightly resembles islands on the map to me is two green spots which do seem detached from the main region just under the red writing in the top-left corner.

    I hope there are some fun places in Karos, and hopefully there will be a snow city. I love snow and ice worlds in video games, no wonder I loved Sinnoh. I'm also hoping we get more fantasy like cities in the game, like a underwater city or one in the sky, but I doubt it. Hope the region will look nice. I'm finally motivated to get into Pokemon again.

    Just looked at the map:

    1. Hoenn is still the king in my opinion
    2. Kanto, the original
    3. Johto, cool region but very small
    4. Unova, was okay but way to linear
    5. Sinnoh, not my cup of tea. It was a boring region everything was putted way to clean/nice.

    For Karos, it think it will be between Hoenn and Kanto I'm content.
