That's some pretty interesting connections there. Although, I'm still pretty convinced that the new region will be set in France. Even the starters seem to have a strong link to the culture of France than most. That being said, I also hope the new region is influenced from Europe in general and not just one specific country.

Britain would make for a beautiful region though, so I wouldn't mind if it were Britain and not France.

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.

The Palace of Versailles. Almost exact same architecture for that palace, and the huge water body with a bridge is strikingly similar.
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!
Well it could be both Britain and France. I mean Unova wasn't TOTALLY 100% in line with New York so they could mix around things a little (and honestly both Britain and France's architecture looks similar to me :x)
I'm paired with and in love with Frizy ♥

It's france, one can cleary see the river seine behind Pikachu when it shoots out the bolts covering the world in the announcement, plus the tower in that scene was cleary the eiffle tower. Saying it's britain seems to have less going for it than when some of us speculated Unova was based on Shanghai.

As a Brit, I can safely say that the in game tower in no way is based on Blackpool tower, the in game tower is clearly in the middle of a town centre just like the Eiffel, and stands on its own, the Blackpool tower is sat on top of a building and is right next to the coast, so they in no way match, and also those solid ufo shaped buildings in the Barren mountain range look NOTHING like the Eden project, which is clearly transparent honeycomb domes situated on the ground surrounded by rolling green hills.

It's obvious this region is based on France and not Britain, having been to both Blackpool and the Eden Project, they just don't match.
