This may be a long shot, but I'm hoping Hoenn is accessible during the post-game. The route numbers would make sense (new region is 1, 2, 3,... and Hoenn is 101, 102, 103...), and the red/blue theme is reminiscent of Ruby and Sapphire. And of course, if GameFreak is going to skip the RS remake, that would be a great way to satisfy fans of Ruby and Sapphire.
The views truly looked amazing! I wonder what cities will look like now O.o And did I see on the trailer a Pokemon coming out of the grass, where you can see what it is? I hope finding wild Pokemon will actually be like this, but maybe that will be something like the Hidden Grottos
I think you guys are just seeing what you want to see, and you'll probably say this every time a red/blue color scheme pops up.

france is such a cool place to show the 3D, it is as they say in the trailer, breath-taking 3D.
the areas already look exciting and lovely with the blue skies and glittering water ^^

France seems a safe bet. It has a lot to offer geographically. It's large, has a wide range of environments and I'd argue has more noticeably recognisable cultural facets and stereotypes associated to it. (the food, architecture, fashion, museums/arts, etc).
As for those who argue "there's no desert in France", well there's no desert in NY or Kyushu, yet there were deserts in Unova and Hoenn.
Was it just me, or was the one building looking a little like the palace of versailles?
the areas are great, when I opened youtube and before I pressed the nintendo direct livestream I missed, I saw: Pokemon X and Y update news, I thought: wtf?, after seeing how different it is from usual and how great the areas are, I thought: AWESOME
I hope more city and route information comes soon, this isn't enough for me!
I'll tell you thing i'm looking forward to is finding out how much more detailed things are with it being on the 3DS, i'm going to make the assumption that the region will be bigger then previous ones and most likely have many more secret areas to explore.
If this new region were to hypothetically loosely follow the geography of Europe, they probably wouldn't be a second away from each other.Just imagine one second be in France, and another second being in Russia. That would be ridiculous.
I know sinnoh was based off of Hokkaido, but the way the trainers looked in d/p along with the music and fantina kind of reminded me of france..
All I know is that in the XY trailer, the protagonist looks way too similar to Hilbert, and that there is a lot of Unova pokemon there..

PM me if you want to exchange FCs!
I WANT FENNEKIN NOW! QAQ
Im actually most excited for the new region/ new pokemon aspect more so than mechanics. Whether it be only France or all of Europe it will only be loosely based, and be extremely exciting to explore. Do you think that (Assuming it's only France) France was a good choice? It's certainly different with Paris, the southern sea area, and the farms, but we also have pokemon that already remind me of France. Mismagius, Chandelure, and Ninetales have always reminded me of the country. There are a few more that are eluding me right now.
Some people are pointing out there are places in the trailer that look like the Vaux-le-Vicomte Chateau and Pic du Midi de Bigorre (besides the obvious Eiffel Tower).
(I don't see reason to expect much more of Europe in it, since it's France Masuda was visiting.)

I feel ashamed, knowing that the Eiffel Tower symbolism was the only thing I could notice that looked familiar. I'm so lame; gotta get more into my studies.
But overall, the region looks very fancy; it has that ring to the look were getting. Graphics wise, they'll grow on me; I mean, this is only the first set of content we got.
