In light of the fact that Unova looks like a part of the USA, lets imagine how our home country look like in the Pokemon world?

Probably a very urban centre with increasingly rural outskirts. It'd be quite cool to have a Britain Region; start out in Lands End, head up through London and then across to Wales, travel through there to the coast, EPICLY MASSIVE WATER ROUTE, Ireland, EPICLY MASSIVE WATER ROUTE, Scotland and finally up to John O'Groats. Alternatively, have the other countries as sub regions post Elite 4 ala Sevii Isles.

Hrm.
I imagine the non-New York-based bits of America would probably be similar to Sinnoh, considering it's a mix of industrialized AND rural.

I live in Canada: One part Solaceon town, one part Snowpoint city.

I have an upcoming fic which Ash and Co. goes to Singapore.

In my vision, Singapore would look and feel like a mix of Vermilion City, Castellia City, Black City as well as bits of Pinwheel Forest, swamps in and here.etc

For People culture wise, Check out my fic once it comes out.

I do wonder what is the culture of the people in our pokemonized versions of our hometown.

Being from the US, I'd expect some varied biomes. The east and Atlantic coast having an urban, yet marine feel to them, while the Northeast and the North boast cold and secluded environments. The Midwest would probably be represented by grasslands and humble towns along the way, while the Southwest is made up of barren deserts with a city or two, along the way. Finally, the South would be ornate and grand, but entwined with nature, as swamps and oceans surround the Southern United States.

Think my country would look more like Unova than sinnoh.

Most curious is how would the culture be like living in those countries as all of you are talking.

Like say I would imagine people in the Pokemon world Arizona would have a cowboy accent and they like Miltank, Taurus and Buffolant.etc. They also possess Ground/Rock types for instance.

Another part maybe they have the usual cowboy stuff and their way of life.

So if you mention South Korea, then.....most likely similar to Unova or Sinnoh.... It's hard to determine at times...

However, I am sure that there will be a massive water route connecting The Korean Peninsula to Japan.

New Zealand as a Pokemon region, huh?

Actually, the world did have Pokemon, you know.

We just ate them all.

What would the UK look like? One word: Awesome. ^^

I reckon Arcanine would be our national Pokémon if we had one. It would just fit so perfectly. And we'll have Arcanine statues in Trafalgar Square. That would be cool.

We'd probably use the major motorways as Routes, plus I think we'll have a rail system for later in the game (e.g. high-speed line from Glasgow to London). We also have much potential for water routes, either around the coasts or up one of our many rivers (the Thames or Severn come to mind). As for Pokémon, I think we'd probably have an amalgamation of all Generations, since the UK historically has a diverse population of many ethnic and national origins (we've been invaded enough times).

The Pokémon League would probably be located in London - maybe the O2 arena or even the London 2012 Olympic Stadium. If possible I'd love to see a tournament-based system that you can enter with the 8 badges, and if you win the tournament, you get to battle the Elite 4 for the Champion spot. Gyms would also be located in the major cities - Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow - maybe even Belfast as the Cinnabar Island equivalent.

As far as expansion regions go, maybe make Ireland explorable? Or the Channel Islands (Jersey, Guensey, etc.). Maybe the Isle of Man or the Isle of White? There's loads of little islands to choose from. Even the Orkney's if you're feeling brave enough to traverse the whirlpools up there. :)

;-)

It's true, though. Mareep would be very common. (We have forty million sheep and only four million people) New Zealand also has lots of farmland, so that would be reflected somehow, I'm sure. Maybe the sides of the Routes would show actual farms with features instead of trees?

I amend my previous post; Wales would also have Mareep. LOTS BUT NOT QUITE AS MANY MAREEP.

Ireland would basically be the same :L But a mixture of Mareep and Milktank xD

Swedens landscape would be full of forest. It would also in north been more mountanious area in north with some mining. Can't say which cities would fit in as Sweden though.

As for pokemon? Lots of Stantler, Deerling and Sawsbuck!

...New Jersey?

Grimers, Muks, Trubbish, and Garbodor would rule my area. The main trainers would be Guidos and Guidettes, and although there would be a beach along the right side of the region, it wouldn't be particularly pretty.

On the up side, the "shopping mall" would be a lot of different small stores along the beach, to imitate the boardwalk. It would be directly connected to Unova as well. The best Pokecademy in both regions would be located in the north of the region (Princeton), and there would probably be parodies of people such as Bon Jovi and Walt Whitman.

It would have a lot of surfing spots..and almost every town will be separated by seas. A bit rural and a bit industrialized.

Virginia as a pokemon region?
Well it would be a big rural area and the rest would be all grassy and normal. There would be Minnico, Tailow, Pidove and others. If you mean America in whole I have to say big cities and little cities like Unova mixed with Sinnoh. But since my hack's region is based on Hawaii, There would have to be an area like the Sevii Islands.

Hmm, let's find a way with which Godwin's law WOULDN'T apply...
Everyone would look like a stereotypical Bavarian, talk like a stereotypical Bavarian and act like a stereotypical Bavarian. And I wouldn't understand a single word of the various NPC's monologues.
At least there wouldn't be a lot of sea routes and snowy routes and no desert routes at all, gotta love continental temperate climate.

Poland would be a bit dull region full of factories, forests (mostly pine) and, OF COURSE, wastelands, country, small villages and a lot of apple plantations.
I don't think my country would look good as a Pokemon region. It's not very curious in landscape.
We would have lots of Pidove everywhere, Miltank in country, Venipede & Caterpie, (Mostly in forests or small villages) some Duckletts and Pachirisu in parks and forests.

That actually sounds like it would make a really cool region. If I ever get Photoshop on my computer again I'll probably make a region map like that.

Anyhoo, here's something I found on Deviantart and I'm from England so...

Poland is bit bland isn't it? I would defiantly get a Miltank as my starter and we would romp around Poland, and it would be AWESOME! Back on topic there would of tons of Pidgy and Pidove in Lodz.

As big as that looks, and as cool as it is, I could see it being very linear, and very bland.

Also, it really misuses Scotland. You could fit a couple towns or cities or a huge dungeon up there.

Also, I've been musing over the New England area as a Pokemon reigon, just as a hypothetical thing to toy with in my thoughts, and I could see Boston as some big-ass city, Rhode Island's weird islands as a Safari Zone, Springfield (MA) as a big amusement park place (ie; Six Flags New England), and Cape Cod as some post-E4 location. But that's just me.

Noob out.

EDIT: Oops, I forgot. You could have a shiny Lapras hide in that reigon's equivalent of Loch Ness.

I live in England,have done for my whole life, never been abroad and seriously I hate this country. It would suck. Do Brazil as a region.

Since Japan is already done, I will be looking at Scotland. I think Scotland would have its own Pokemon League rather than sharing a league with the rest of the UK.
