    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.

    Well, the legendaries seem to be related to the World Tree, Yggdrasill, which is part of the scandinavian mythology. There could be as well some elements from the Nordic countries.

    I wouldn't be suprised of the Eiffel Tower was a gym/league/bad guy hangout.

    Oddly enough the previous gen had French legendaries, in addition to some other Pokes clearly linked to other cultures (Stoutland). I think we could infer too much from the Pokes themselves.

    As a fan of nordic mythology I'd love if it would be true. Maybe the whole region will be europe-ish, but every city will have a different country feel? That would be awesome, given how varied Europe is.

    I just noticed something- at the beginning of the tailer, when pikachu sends out electricity, right after, the area he's standing on kind of looks like southern europe! I'm sold- its France..

    It'll probably be some dungeon area or something.

    Honestly I see a gym mostly because they never reveal anything with the elite four until the games are out. I remember back before black and white came people speculated that Lenora's gym was an elite four challenge as well. It's fire so it has to look intense and this could just mean it's one of the later gyms.

    It's also France, so it had to be dramatic

    Same here, I'm expecting it to be the location of the final showdown between the protagonist and the villain.

    I'm honestly hoping that the Louvre makes an appearance. And The Arc of Triumph. Or maybe the Champagne market, in a reference to history?

    I completely agree! I really wonder what their rationale for not having one yet is. Gen V would have been great. Liepard, Krookodile, and Scrafty. All were pokemon you could get fairly early on. I really am excited for this new region. France wasa a great choice. There is a lot of diversity, and the pokemon can be a range of things as well.

    I wouldn't say that just yet after all Nintendo seems to have come into the DLC age so we may see it in an expansion....(along w/ other regions)

    As for the games themselves I'm hoping for a nonlinear world where perhaps the Pokemon could scale with your progress (aka the further you go in the game the tougher the Pokemon become)

    The other interesting way to do it would be the further you go from the main routes the tougher the Pokemon become(aka you could leave the heavily traveled routes to explore wilderness where the wild levels get quite high(maybe to the 70's)...

    I just want something interesting to the levels in all honesty as we so far have the issue of linear=good level scaling(high level Pokemon/trainers), nonlinear=horrible scaling(Pokemon and trainers never get to challenging levels)....

    They always come out with the remakes first so this was quite a shock. The region I'm guessing is based of of France since that tower did look like another tower we've all seen before.

    Right now Hoenn is out of the question, as are other regions. The new region is the focus and most likely will remain the focus. I doubt that GF would want to draw attention away from their shiny new 3D environment by including other regions form previous games in the same game.

    What do you mean? Never has a Generation started out with a set of remakes.

    With you but for different reasons I don't think they'll do that ever again. GS was too short so they tacked Kanto on the back, they seem to be better at the whole length thing these days.

    I don't actually see there being a RSE remake at all they are far to accessible... RSE had a lot of crap wrong with it that needed fixing and I'd like to see fixed but its still playable on the older DSs and the transfer system still exists. Further the actual point of the FRLG remakes was to get around the limitations that the switch GBA transfer cable threw up. They did HSSS because lets face it those games were some of the best in the series ..

    yeah but dont you think that they will just decide to do the remakes of rs/e that everyone wants so bad so that people wont get annoyed by the hopes of epic remakes being crushred and why dont they jusrt do the remakes on the 3DS that would be much ore logical than aborting the remakes.

    If GF are planning these remakes then they will most likely come after the release of X and Y. And I can assure you that no hopes will get "crushed" unless an official source outright says that remakes will never happen; the desire for remakes in the community is too strong for it to just die just because of these two games. But all this is irrelevant to the thread.

    No. Just no. Cramming a continent into a region is not cool. At all.

    I hope this isn't too controversial, but how amazing would it be to see a Gym that takes on the look of a high class building? Like a Cathedral? That would be beautiful. Perhaps an Elite four room, if nothing else.

    I'd love to see something like that. I think the Fire Gym already uses a cathedral, actually, if I'm not mistaken. Something that catches your eye right away, like a casino.
