I actually wouldn't mind getting lost in the city, it'll be fun to see everything it's got.
Hopefully we'll see other cities soon. Actually all the Kalos towns/cities seem like they have something to see from what I've seen of the map.

I'll probably prefer a small city next to the Ocean, but Lumiose definitely looks awesome :D

Lumiose sounds like it comes from the word Lumos, which means Light?
Maybe during night-time the city will be full of bright lights? That'd be pretty cool!

Hey I already suggested that XD
But yeah, Lumios only has one possible original and that is indeed, Lumos/Luminous

The theme of the cities' names might be related to light. Lumiose has got the same root as "illuminate" and "luminosity." There are hundreds of light-related words that could be used for other cities and towns: glow, bright, aurora, shine, flare, radiant, halo, sparkle, glisten, iridescent, gleam, dazzle, glint, etc.

I call dibs on the first town having a name being based on the word Spark, as it's the beinning of your journey and the beginning of light starts with a single spark.

As the Kalos region is based on France then I am sure Lumious city is referred from paris city with Lots of lights in night as well as a cool scenery every where

So many people (from what I've seen anyways) have speculated that the Lumiose City tower will most likely be the huge market. For some reason that just doesn't gel right with me. They made out the tower to be of significant importance and it seems to big just to hold a few shops imo.

I'm thinking the tower is either some huge battling facility, the pokemon league, or introduce some kind of mechanic that is completely new to the series.

I'd prefer more buildings to having to use the damn elevator all the time...

I think the addition of diagonal movement is purely a circle pad thing. It's possible, so use it. I wonder to what degree it will be employed, however; can one go south-southwest for instance?

This.

Paris is known as "La Ville-Lumière" (the City of Lights). Meanwhile, Lumious is a reference to "luminous" (bright or shining, esp. in the dark) or "luminosity" (the intrinsic brightness of a celestial object). This is definitely the Pokémon version of Paris. No doubt about it.

Lumiose City...



So apparently this bustling city would be the capital of the Kalos Region, and it's pretty much based off France. This got me thinking. France is quite a magical city at night, yet it's also energetic and quite cheerful during the day. Do you think there would be a day/night cycle that would display two sides of it? Do you think its theme would be like Castelia City or something more relaxing and french-like?

Oh and here's my own interpretation of Lumiose at night

I highly doubt it. Basically, each region would have different musical vocals.

That doesn't mean some aria with melodic singing, without using actual words, can't occur. But actual vocals I highly doubt.

I sort of expect that it'll be just a vantage point where you can look over different views of the city, sort of like that little hill area at the start of BW2. You know, just a chance to show off the 3D nature of the game a little more.
