There are a few reasons why I've decided to do it this way.
I don't want to change the name of the region or any of the towns because I still want it to take place in the real Pokemon universe. This is because I don't want my game to seem so foreign to people to the point that you can't really feel at home with the game anymore.
But I don't want to keep the layout of the map identical because I don't want it to be the same old same old game that we've all played a thousand times. I think redesigning the maps with my own creativity and fresh ideas is one of the best ways to make playing a game exciting and interesting - but I still want it to be Kanto.
Also, redoing the maps isn't necessarily enough. I'm also rewriting the connection data - which means what maps connect to what maps and how - so that the player still feels like they're embarking on a brand new journey.
Also, I completely redid the screenshot section. You should check out what's new in the first post!
