Do you think there will be travel between regions?
The start of the trailer showed a whole world, bringing some speculation into maybe they added some extra places?

Give your thoughts here!

Hiroshi Sotomura January 8th, 2013 3:40 AM

I reckon it showed the whole world to simply demonstrate that it's the Pokémon series' first worldwide release.

I mean, we've only had 3 other generations before with no other regions featured.

Or this game could be the POKéMON EUROPE WORLD TOUR.

Aryan143 January 8th, 2013 3:44 AM

No I don't think that it should happen unless they have the game continuing in any other region like G/S/C/HG/SS.

Blue January 8th, 2013 3:49 AM

There could be two, but I can't see them returning to an older region i.e Kanto.

Echidna January 8th, 2013 3:55 AM

I sincerely doubt it. (Castiel reference right there)
Honestly, the game's graphics look way too advanced and complicated for them to go through the trouble of mapping a whole second region, especially for a release this early. I can't be sure, but like I said, I sincerely doubt it.

JayD January 8th, 2013 5:36 AM

Unless they were already in production of the game now, I don't think we'll be able to go back to the other regions. Maybe this will take place somewhere around Unova? And base it on another city from USA?

giradialkia January 8th, 2013 5:41 AM

I doubt it.

Firstly, if there was going to be two regions in a Pokémon game, I am willing to bet the money I'm saving for a 3DS that they wouldn't make two entirely new regions for the sake of it. There'd be no point.

The whole "returning to past regions" was a trait that I loved in GSC/HGSS, but it's something that will remain exclusive to GSC/HGSS, I think it's safe to say at this stage. Normally saying something like that would depress me, but because B2W2 had the World Tournament, I'm feeling a lot better about a whole new adventure.

With that said, someone brought up the fact that BW was a reboot, we could consider this as the "GSC" to BW. I think that's out the window because of B2W2 though.

Captain Fabio January 8th, 2013 5:43 AM

Well, if you could, this would be the longest Pokemon game in existence! XD

I loved going back in the previous games to the previous worlds and I would love for that to happen in this one.

NG55 January 8th, 2013 7:00 AM

The games ARE called X and Y which are coordinates, so it may be something to do the world. Or it's just references the fact that the game is set in France and the X/Y thin was invented by a French guy.

Pokemon Trainer Ethan January 8th, 2013 7:06 AM

They probably won't If they do I would like to see them go to hoenn of Sinnoh since they already did kanto and johto.

flight January 8th, 2013 7:17 AM

oh god no.

No offense to anyone, Unova was pretty...boring, to say the least? I mean sure, the gym leaders and the characters made the whole region have some sort of colorful flavor to it, there's no doubt about that, but the journey was just less than satisfactory.

The only region that would be worth going back to is Hoenn, and I don't see any distinct connection between these games and the Hoenn region.

In short, I wouldn't complain if they did have this feature, but let the regions be to their respective games.

gimmepie January 8th, 2013 7:49 AM

Since this is based on Europe which has a lot of very small countries I think multiple regions is a possibility but that seems like a stretch. I doubt that other regions will be revisited just yet (but I'm guessing we'll have gen 6 R/S/E remakes) .

I think the two are unrelated.

dieter57 January 8th, 2013 8:06 AM

No I do not think there will be multiple regions in these games. Ass far as the whole world being shown, I believe that's more related to the whole global release and announce of the games. They only gen that has supported the traveling between regions is gen II but that's because it shared so much with gen I.

Look at B/W2 for example. We are able to go to the old part of unova like its a different region in a way. Same with gen IV. We unlocked the battle area to the north. All of these act like "another region" for us to explore. You had to explore all of johto in gen II and they just gave us kanto to explore as an extra area.

Correspondence January 8th, 2013 8:13 AM

I highly doubt there will be travelling between regions but there might be a small region like the Sevii Isles in FR/LG.

Para-Dox January 8th, 2013 9:03 AM

I'll echo what glitchguy said.

Maybe another region based on the British Isles for the postgame. Maybe they could have the battle tower/frontier representing the 02 arena and Big Ben?

Gary0ak January 8th, 2013 9:09 AM

I think it would be cool to see Hoenn. but there is zero chance of that happening

tabor62 January 8th, 2013 9:19 AM

I doubt that there would be an extra region. It would be awesome but I can't see it happening. The only reason Gen II had both Johto and Kanto was because it was a direct sequal taking place in a differnt region.

EdwardsNT January 10th, 2013 11:10 AM

Pokemon X and Y
Does anyone else want to see returns of old regions? Like in Gen 2 when you traveled back to Kanto and fought the gym leaders there?

Which region(s) would you most like to see return in the new series and why?

It would be way off according to series, but I wouldn't mind seeing Hoenn return. Would be fun to travel back to Hoenn again!

Captain Fabio January 10th, 2013 11:38 AM

Merged into the existing thread.

Esper January 10th, 2013 11:50 AM

While I don't think we'll be seeing other regions, one or two secret areas that aren't on the map would seem to be in keeping with how the games have been made recently. Most likely some characters from older games will make cameo appearances, too. That's all I'd expect really.

Perico January 10th, 2013 12:05 PM

Not sure if you mean between past regions or between different new regions (still unknown). If the first one, I barely see it. It won't happen.

Between new regions, it might be a good idea but it isn't convincing at all. You know, new region = new Pokémon.

Anyway, neither the one nor the second are going to happen, so... bah xD

Lord Varion January 10th, 2013 12:07 PM

I'd like to see a past generation, but who knows, maybe we'll get somemthing small like Sevii Islands, or something related.

Katamari January 10th, 2013 12:31 PM

While it's a cool feature, I've never liked the whole dual region concept. I always get too bored of the game to pursue another region... namely in GSC/HGSS my save files don't typically make it to Kanto or if they do, I only end up getting one or two more badges before getting completely bored.

PeaceDarkAngel January 10th, 2013 12:44 PM

I miss the old regions and would love to see them again. Not sure how'd they'd do it though. It's probably not in this game, but maybe someday... WAY into the future. They'll have a game where they put new pokemon mixed with old pokemon in old regions... Would be odd to see, but cool to play.

Eucliffe January 10th, 2013 12:51 PM

Though traveling to other regions other than from Johto to Kanto is something I've been wanting to see for a long time, I doubt they'd do it this time around. Heck, maybe they could save such up for Pokemon's 20th anniversary or so. Or, if they get that far, their 50th anniversary. Man, would that be something :B
