To name the region after the title of the actual games seems a bit bland if you ask me. There's little to no effort put into it at all if they did that. In my opinion, they've barely begun to scratch the surface as far as region names go, so I don't actually think they'd go the "X" or "Y" route as an actual name.

If not... maybe the Alter region? It would come from "Altered" as in altered DNA, and it legit seems like a name for a region - and has the length of most of the others!

Hmmm it'd probably be more like Acidia, than Acedia, because I'd pronounce it like A-seed-ear, which'd make less sense if it were related to that. :x

I was thinking of the lines of Alternia coz it does have a nice ring to it and yeah what Nica said, it comes from altered and stuff... Or maybe because I just read too many Homestuck ::::/

Repurance just sounds...not region-like to me? I don't know. But then again I don't have any other better ideas.

''ein'' is also a german word so that would make sense too but i think it is going to be ernon
becuase ''er'' is from europe and ''non'' is a french word i would rather like ''gernon'' couse it has germany in it too and you prenounce it as churr-no

what about xemyr? pronounciation zeh-mirr

Pardon Kanto, I don't think the region name will be so obvious as to what location it will be based off of. GameFreak seems to be a bit more creative with their region names ever since after Kanto.

Alssace? That might just be a city in the region, though, or an anime-original location.

That's a really pretty name! It'd also tie in where Pokemon was born to where Pokemon is now. :3

Bulbagarden's news page seems to call it the Karosu region.

I wonder what the English name will be. Given that the official site for the US seems to keep up with news released in Japan a day early, I think we'll find out around the 14th or 15th.

hm. well, isshu was the only region where the name changed a lot (isshu > unova). so judging by that pattern I think it might be completely different in English, but I think it might just keep Karosu which isn't too nice of a name imo. MAKES ME THINK OF CARROTS :'(

I like Karos for now but I do really hope that they "Frenchify" it like Zorogami said, I love the fact that the region is based on France and I'm interested to see what they do for the region name and the cities and everything.

I'm looking forward to it as well, although tbh i hope they'll include some elements from other european countries, like spain-inspired Beaches or Snowy Scandinavian regions!

The region may only be based on france for all we know.
If they change the name it'll proably start with an R for Republic.

I am hoping the English name starts with a f. One name I came up with on the top of my head was Frona. But for some reason I remember something similar already being used in Pokemon somewhere. Frona was a name a came up with by thinking about Unova and France.

If they do frenchify "Karos" for the english version I would like if it was pronounced "Ka-rose" or "Ka-ruse"

That sounds quite french to me.
