    I would love to see a non linear world to explore for Pokemon X and Y

    So what r the places that have the most pokemon fans ?

    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

    It's fairly safe to say that Hoenn is not going to be in this game. At all. The best you can hope for are remakes way after these games are released.

    Again? People said the same thing when the logos for Black 2 and White 2 were revealed ("oh, it's totally a ruby and a sapphire right there"), and look how it went.

    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.

    Just don't make it too open, I got fusterated many times during Sinnoh getting lost a bunch of times not knowing where to go next.

    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 ^^

    I agree, the Eiffel tower looked amazing! It would be cool if each city was based on different places of Europe. Like, one with Berlin, another with London and the red light district

    I honestly don't know why people would like this region to be Europe all-in-one. Just a haste to see the other parts of the continent pokémon-ed, even if it feels crammed and superficial?
    You could say the same for the U.S., and yet they chose one small area from the entire country and added a bit of those other cultures into the region and claimed that that represented the entire U.S. I think they'll do the same here, the area itself will be based on France, but the culture will be based on Europe in general.

    I'm not, I just don't particularly want to see the inevitable influx of Hoenn and remake spam coming in again. The presentation is over, Iwata said nothing about Hoenn remakes, let's leave it at that.

    Obviously there is a line between having enough to explore and having too much (Twilight Princess suffered from this a lot) but I think GF would have learned their lessons from previous regions and gauged a good exploration level in a 3D environment. In any case, that's a matter of linearity you're talking about, not openness. You could potentially have very very open places but very strict linearity at the same time.

    Well I know the red/blue scheme proves absolutely nothing, but at least it would be consistent. Since details on this game are so scarce, one can hope.

    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.


    Round and Round and Round he goes~

    It does look like it, I think someone said it in this thread.

    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!

    Oh really haven't been on the thread, just posting my opinion. As for the people speculating that it's going to be all of Europe, or major cities, I must say I do not concur. I feel as if a lot of the cultures are too different, and that the game would be very choppy. Just imagine one second be in France, and another second being in Russia. That would be ridiculous.

    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.

    I don't really think we're going to see a massive wave of French culture pressed upon us. If you think about it, the first four regions in Pokemon were all based on Japan but the only region which really showed obvious signs of Japanese culture was Johto, with Ecruteak City. All of the other locations could have easily been based on numerous locations around the world, not just Japan.

    If this new region were to hypothetically loosely follow the geography of Europe, they probably wouldn't be a second away from each other.

    We'll probably get a few more screenshots in the new CoroCoro on the 15th. Maybe even a silhouette.

    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..

    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.)
