I think they may include some of the suburbs of Paris as well.

Now what do you guys think will happen to the Route numbering? Will we go back down to Route 1? Or will the region pick up where Unova left off?

Also I wonder if it'll have a link to Unova as real life france helped America gain it's independence...

Not sure if this has been mentioned, and too lazy to look, but not only is there an Eiffel Tower-like figure in the background, but when Pikachu speaks at the beginning of the trailer and then it zooms out and he 'shocks the globe', he's actually standing on the Eiffel Tower :3

So yeah, most likely France based.

It's confirmed to be back at 1 because of a sign visible in the trailer showing a 3.

If the region is made up of paris and the area around it the region will than be land locked as Paris isn't close to the coast for quite a distance, and if it were to connect to normandy it'll be the biggest region ever seeing how that extension would make it bigger than the sinnoh region which is based on Hokkaido (of course pokemon regions aren't exactly to scale...).

I'm hoping it's something French, especially now that I love the place xD Hopefully they'll add the attractions too, more than just the Eiffel Tower, though for some odd reason I can picture the final battle taking place at the top... xD

Hm... I'm thinking the new region will have some sort of contact with the Unova region, even though it's based on an entirely new continent. As we've already seen the Eiffel Tower, it's very likely to be based off Paris or the entire country of France. Seeing as Unova was based off New York City.

Hm... I'm probably thinking that it would probably go all the way back down to Route 1 again, seeing as the games are based in a different continent from the United States. The only games that have ended up going onto Route 101, 201 ect. is when it was based in the same country. Since Hoenn was based in Japan, it went up to Route 101, while Sinnoh was based on Hokkaido, Japan... it went to Route 201.

In the trailer there was a sign post with a "3" on it only assuming this is Route 3 which may indicate that this region is isolated from the others.

Agreed, this region is most likely like Unova and is secluded from the other regions, so it'd start from 1 again

I'm glad that some of the old pokemon appear, it makes it feel like we might get Pokemon connected to the old opposed to Unova (BW) which had all new.
I hope they include the beach at the seine river into the games (yes the french have a makeshift beach on a river).

Paris does have the Seine river though, and they could exaggerate the size of it a bit to give us some more water areas.

I think the trainers, espc the girl look french also. Gamefreak really didn't make it hard this time. xD.

Interesting pics of french buildings, those defiantly look like the locations in the games. I thought some of Sinnoh's Pokemon looked french, haha.

Well if they do base it on France, it would be cool if they named ONE of the characters Eleanor after Eleanor of Aquitaine because she is a really interesting historical character. But hopefully there aren't a ton of dumb stereotypes like berets and snails and stuff.

I think people are generalizing it to Europe for speculation, but I would really love to see it based in France specifically. It gives them more room to work with other European countries in the future, as well.

So a few people may have said already that the structure in the back of one of the scenes of the trailer looks like the eiffel tower. However, most still think this doesn't actually mean it would be located in france.
So now to get to my point, i may be one of the only ones to not have seen this immediately, but right at the start of the trailer, pikachu is standing in a city, now that doesnt mean very much, but when you see him doing his thundershock attack and the camera slowly moves out of there and shows the whole earth. When you pause it at the right time, at about 00:13. You can clearly see pikachu was standing on the Eiffel Tower. Also, it is shown the thundershock is directly coming from the center of Europe.
To come to a conclusion, Is this something everyone already knew about and didnt see it as enough information?? Or am i the first one to see this? Anyways, i made this thread to speculate if this game would be set in france or not, and if this is a confirmation or not.


For reference, Here's a picture of what i saw

Definitely Europe in general, which would suggest a London analogy on an island? It's been a while since we've had an island city. We also see tulips in the preview video (which would suggest the Netherlands are featured somehow) and the big castle's design appears to be based on Frederiksborg Palace in Denmark. The only thing I haven't figured out is the UFO-like buildings in the desert setting. The desert would suggest it's equivalent to Spain, but those buildings don't fit any Spanish architecture I can find.

Hm... earlier I was thinking that the region might actually be set in Paris. But then again... when I looked at it on Google Earth, it was completely inland. So now I kind of think that the new region would probably be based in France, but I'm thinking it'll take place somewhere on the west side of France.

So it kind of makes me think that the region will kind of look more like this:
Spoiler:


What do you think? Is this a good location for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y to be set in? :o

Looks okay! I like that there's little islands nearby. Travelling to them would be awesome as extra little things, such as travelling to the islands, and stuff, like Liberty Garden. :3

Plus then we'd have extra things to do after exploring the main region!

Looking around sub-reddit Pokemon and came across this from 4chan: http://imgur.com/Cc5scHt

While it doesn't give a convincing counter argument for France, it does give us another idea. Perhaps the region is actually the British Isles?

From wikipedia: "Cernunnos was a god in Celtic mythology that possessed two deer antlers on the top of his head. He was known as The Horned One or The Horned God despite having antlers and not horns. Cernunnos is also known as The Stag Lord, The Horned God of the Hunt, The Lord of the Forest, The Lord of the Hunt, and The Lord of the Animals.[4] However, it is impossible to know exactly because there is no one particular myth concerning him."

a Celtic Stag? Similar to Xerneas perhaps?

EDIT: Also (http://imgur.com/r/pokemon/feeJWSE) something else to add to the Britain-based idea.

Anyone else dig up some information on the possibility of it being in Britain? Or perhaps somewhere else entirely?

Oooooh that's really interesting. Right now I actually believe the Britain thing more than France, really. Plus it'd make sense - covering the "major" English speaking locations, starting from America, to Britain, to Australia, etc. Also if that's right, it means that GF were intentionally trying to trick us from the start - good stuff you found imo.

That does make a lot of sense~! Yeah, I can totally see the games being based off of Britain instead of France now; which can be actually quite interesting! Britain does have a lot of cool architecture, so I'd like to see more of it there. Well, maybe not just Britain, but I would like to see X and Y being base doff of Europe in General.

Probably gonna be france, but hat's off to considering Britain. I mean I don't get the point in having your most used mascot on top of the most famous French landmark starting off a trailer for a game which has very Parisian architecture in a city that features a huge Eiffel Tower like structure, only to give us Britain of all things. You do that not as a red-herring, but to get people thinking of what a Paris based region can be like. Not to mention, the Manga site has some French Adventure thing, and Masuda has been in Paris for a while a couple months ago, being super happy about it and what not.

Also:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palace_of_Versailles
The Palace of Versailles. Almost exact same architecture for that palace, and the huge water body with a bridge is strikingly similar.
http://www.google.gr/search?q=parisi...w=1280&bih=911
Take also a good look at all these buildings, compared to XY. Kinda the same vibe going on right? You know why too, right? Yes, because its based on France!
