The name karos means carriage in greek so it doesnt get me all that excited...
My online dictionary says this about the word:

カロス (n) kaross (cloak made of animal skin)

There's a wikipedia page for the (English) word 'kaross' here. It doesn't seem related though.

Interesting, very interesting, maybe if someone else works out the meaning of Miaré then we can figure out the region's "theme"
(Kanto was a paint palette as was Johto, Unova was material in japan and cloud formations in English)

Miare means measure in Polish. Does that help?

...fashion! France is based upon fashion. Cloaks are worn in fashion, and measuring tapes are used in fashion too. The names have helped us figure out the theme imo. :3

That totally works!! Fashion will be the most likely theme then, at least in the Japanese version, although it might be that too in English, we'll have to wait for next saturday when Pokemon.com will likely update with the english info

Well one of the new trainer class' is apparently a "Mini Skirt" and Fashion can be coupled up with France so it would make sense really.

*arches eyebrows*

"Mini Skirt Hottie would like to battle!"

I can't see them calling it like that in English...keep in mind children play these games, too...

That's just a "Lass" trainer. Miniskirt is what the Japanese games call that kind of trainer. Look here.

That's not a new trainer class, that's what the Lass trainer class is called in Japan.

Now that we know the region's official name, it seems right that this thread come to a close. If you wish to discuss the theme of the region, anyone is free to make such a thread and if you want to discuss the map, then we have this thread here for that.

RIP Region Name Speculation v.2. I'm glad you lasted long enough to avoid having a v.3.
