Each room most definitely does not have its own building, because then, the Valor Lakefront would be huge xP
No, Grand Lake is just like a normal hotel. The houses that Michael saw when he was looking down the valley were actual houses. They're owned by rich people who use them as summer homes and boast that they have a lakeside view.

Haha, yep. I've been waiting a long time to reintroduce Shella like, I don't know, since Chapter 5 maybe and she has a pretty important role. Aside from being Michael's unofficial date. Is it love? xP I don't know... you'll have to wait and see...

It's kind of like the whole "expanding out to the suburbs" that was going on at the time, with the wealthy moving out to the outskirts and developing it to their tastes.
That's exactly what I had in mind when writing this. I alluded to it in Jubilife in the beginning of the story. Hearthome has a similar layout too, though I didn't really dwell on it because it wasn't important. Oreburgh's the only city where I don't imagine a distinct suburban community. Everything's jumbled up in Oreburgh :P
The thing that makes Pastoria different is that its rich are richer than the rich in most other cities, so the rich uptown is more lavish and pompously designed. Maybe it was always like that, or maybe they all just flocked together there over time. I'll leave it up to you to decide.

And yes, hooray for new cities!

Something very big indeed. hehe

Thanks for the review!
