Ok, I don't know if this is true or not, but on Bulbapedia Sootopolis City is supposedly based on "The Greek island of Santorini, also known as Thera." And so I looked at a map of Greece, and it looks shockingly similar to Hoenn, only turned 180°, just like Kyushu. And I realized, what if Nintendo based Hoenn off of Greece and Kyushu? Has Nintendo confirmed this at all? What are your guy's opinions on this? I've also seen that on the island of Zakynthos there is a shipwreck, and that looks about where Dewford Town is, and there is a shipwreck outside Dewford Town. Is this a Coincidence?
