Yeah, the whole area is based on the New York metropolitan area, but I have placed it roughly where Vladivostok is, which shares the geography of the central strip and two pieces of land on either side. This isn't for any reason other than it seemed wasteful to include North America just to have it on there, but I also didn't want it omitted completely. This is a compromise placement so that it's on the same image, but still far away from the others. I hope that makes sense.
And the Hoenn & Unova map seems over too me as the East and West portions of your mape in Hoenn seem to be flip flopped.
I don't really understand what you mean here. Unova is exactly as it is in BW, altered only to fit the style, and Hoenn is rotated 90 degrees to fit its real-world counterpart of Kyushu. I haven't flipped anything as far as I know!
And desert area is off in Unova, unless you are trying to illustrate those as caves, which still there is no desert area in South Central Unova according to the map.
Again, bit confused here. The desert area isn't shown as a different terrain (neither is the one in Hoenn), but I haven't tried to make it look like a cave. Can you clarify?
Thanks for the feedback, though.
