I feel like a native citizen of Unova. At first I felt like a tourist had to explore the main routes, find out where everything was. After a week and half, I know feel like a proud Unova citizen. I know my way around the routes, just exploring the hidden areas. If I need to raise a Pokemon level, I know where the breeders that can be battled more than once are.
Now I can compare them with my travels in Kanto, & Hoenn. Those two regions seem like travel destinations.
