That's what I was talking about, its location is pretty much where its located in France, and it fits the general look of it, how its separated from the main land. Its just a guess though.
I really hope we get more wilderness this time around. Big, wide open map like that, we'd almost have to... In particular, I would appreciate it if the map went the opposite way of last time and was very non-linear. As in, multiple routes one could take to reach a particular place, and routes themselves would be more wide-open and spread out. I hope the mountainous area is particularly spacious (I love me some mountains), with lots of areas to climb, both inside and out. Also, it would be really nice if river travel was actually viable, and it didn't just show up in-game as lots of arbitrarily blocked little segments of river.
Also, that orange area near the large white circle (I'm assuming it's a city). Do you think that could be a savannah? It would be an interesting change of pace from our ordinary deserts...
Judging on that Pokedex picture with numbers based on the region, assuming it's a perfect "still frame" from in game content, there was...
A. I minor brush up with the mountains and they are pursuing a different region (coastal?)
B. They are currently pursuing the mountains, and the mountains is the last region to go to.
Of course, we don't know how linear the game is or not.
Hoenn has disappointed.
P.S. I get tired of complaints from great games.

Before I was hoping/going for each starting route being a different difficulty. (as obviously you'd end up with different gym orders.) But this seems more likely. And seeing as we started in a city with a gym in BW2, it doesn't sound too outlandish to have 3 possible starting towns.
I just recently saw the Pokedex news at the main site and glad to know that the region is separated into three areas.
This could only mean that this region is so big and diverse, the region has to be divided into sub-regions.
This also leads me to think that each sub-region might have a corresponding Legendary, but this is not the right place to discuss it.
Who thinks that Karos region might be romanized as Kalos region? I dunno something about Kalos seems more likely in translations- or is it just me?

I know that it might not mean anything besides habitat organization in the Pokedex, but it is still nice to have a region officially divided into sub-regions.
If the region is as big as some people think it is(I counted 13 towns/cities) then I think it would be cool if in the region itself there were another 8 post-game gyms.
- Tentacool, Staryu, Seel, Shellder, etc would be pokemon found in Coastal Kanto, although they are not necessarily found all in the same place.
- Onix, Diglett, Geodude, Charmander, Cubone, Rhydon, etc would be Mountain Range Kanto pokemon, although they're not found in the same 'mountain ranges/caves'.
- Spearow, Drowzee, Abra, Bellsprout, Meowth, Pikachu, etc would be Central Kanto pokemon, eventhough they're not all found in central regions.
Personally, I agree with your second sentiment, and this is just the FR/LG-dex but more comprised into three subheadings.
If Mont st. Michel turns out to be the league I'll be pleasantly surprised. I've been there quite a few times, and it never ceases to amaze me.
