No one mentioned Western Washington State... there's Puget Sound, a strait of water surrounded by lowlands, highlands and mountains, a big lake with an island on it and overall it's probably the greatest mix of land and water I've seen in an area no more than a hundred miles wide ;P

Yes. And we're also quite diverse. Though we are lacking a general shape for the region to me.

Heres my top 3:
1) New Zealand with part of austraila. So we get part of the mainland with Sydney and a island.
2) We could get the UK and it could be connected to Kalos by the channel tunnel.
3) Florida, though swamplands were annoying in sinnoh and kalos (why were they there?

It'll have to be a place where the developers can go and do some first-hand research. As much as they just throw whatever Pokemon into a region they feel like, they've made an effort to have the places be reminiscent of the real areas they're based on. So Australia wouldn't be picked just because Australia has all those unusual animals. They'd want to pick it because it's got all kinds of landscapes and culture that could find its way into the games.

And that's why I don't think they'll go to places like Africa or the Middle East. Lots of places there aren't too safe or friendly so they won't send people there. Australia seems like it would be a pretty good pick, but so does the UK. The UK though is bound to be a lot like France, or at least more so than New York is, so that doesn't seem like as much of a change as a place like Australia would be.

Wouldn't mind if they picked somewhere in Asia like Taiwan or South Korea, or if they went to South America or the Caribbean.

What do you mean by ««lacking a general shape»»?

I would keep New Zealand and Australia separate... do you have any idea just how large the Tasman Sea really is?

As for the UK and connection with France, that may seem interesting, but I don't know how that would work out in practice..

And I don't know much about Florida...

I agree about the accessibility issue, some parts of the world aren't so well suited to in-depth exploration.. New York City and northern France seem to be more accessible than most and they have plenty of interesting attractions and features that could be incorporated into a Pokémon game, and I don't know many others that are sufficiently accessible and have enough points of interest.

The Pacific Northwest in western Washington, in my opinion has plenty of interesting landscapes that aren't too difficult to access.. between the mountains in the east and west, the lakes and estuary in the middle, the big cities on each side of the biggest lake, a forest area between two big lakes and plenty of other things... for what more could we ask?

I do admit I may be biased in giving a brief overview of one particular region and certainly there may be others that are quite similar to what I described but I have lived in the west side of Washington State for many years and I don't know any other regions well enough.. A close second would be the Auckland area in New Zealand, which from what I've seen looks like it could be done, but I don't know it well enough to really suggest it here..

Would California be nice? It's got mountain barriers, it's got seas, it's got valleys, it's got desert, it's got rainforest. And it's got super techy cities and super huge cities too Maybe a condensed version of the West Coast?

I'm wanting either England (or just the whole U.K) or Australia. I'm waiting for there to be some Beatles parody in England or just the outback of Australia to explore.

UK wouldn't really be as interesting as several other countries that haven't been covered. Animals there are common, nothing that would amuse you, climate is average, just a standard sort of area which I don't think would be a good setting for a Pokemon game.

I would like to see Australia, though. Like some others have mentioned, they have all sorts of animals that are unique to the country or are rare around the world. The country is very different to many parts of the world and it would make for an excellent game setting, in my opinion.

I wonder if there is ever going to be a game that is located in Space. Now that would be interesting and different. Maybe, just maybe, they will resort to that.

Maybe Ireland or Spain, or even connect parts of North Africa to Spain, that would make the layout more interesting.

I'd love to see them base a region off Ireland (or any other similar countries), personally. It could consist of small towns and villages, instead of big, flashy cities. There would be a lot of caves and tunnels to get through, but their obstacles wouldn't be too hard. The routes would contain a bunch of tall grasses, and there'd a couple of rocks laying around here and there. Most grass, rock, and water-type Pokémon would be native to this region, as well as a few flying, such as Aerodactyl, Pidgeot, and Archeops. In the main villages, perhaps they could have huge-looking statues featuring some of the region's legendary Pokémon. d: Also, some towns could have adobe houses, maybe, like in Mexico, Africa, India, etc. etc. I don't know how many people would enjoy exploring this region, exactly, but me, I definitely would!

Space, koff~

The last frontier known to man. These are the voyages of the Poketrek Illumise. Going where no Pikachu has gone before!

Just joking. I think we'll have some more flavors along the way. Perhaps we'll get an Arctic adventure? Or maybe we'll visit some where tropical? I don't know. All I know is that as long as it isn't based on Florida, I'll be happy, koffi~

How about the Philippines, lots lots and lots of Tropius Exeggutor and Krookodile lol

And lots and lots of syndicates around here too. They should make another game where you will take on multiple syndicates like in Emerald.

The UK, would fit as a secondary region, as people have stated, not much to see there, so it could be a secondary region, and the Elite 4 and Champion could be One Direction, haha, or a parody of them.
If we had Italy, it wouldn't be much different from Kalos, Greece would be nice, it would be full of legends.

So True!! That would be a great idea for a Pokemon region as well. It's why I love living in Washington state (I live in south east Seattle). I should have thought of that one. It would be the perfect land for Mienfoo & Buizel, weasels and otters can be found all over the state.

I don't know if its just me being a Canadian, but I'd love to see a region based on Canada. Nintendo could go into Aboriginal designs and a delve into a more nature-based society. And all the pretty music they could come up with and scenery and aaaaah it would be great. And especially on the west coast! There are so many different people and aahahaha if they made a city based on Vancouver I would squeal so hard.

Edit:
They could also delve into the topic of society vs. nature, which is really fun to debate about.

Hmm... I would say that it seems like these last two generation they went toward the West a bit. Unova was based on New York and Kalos was based on France, which are in the Americas and Europe. If they stay with that, I can see the UK being our next stop.

The UAE is certainly an option if they want to move away from Europe. A city there that's based on Dubai would be a good chance to show off their abilities with graphics.

Honestly, I would like one in Egypt, but it may be a touchy one to go for with all the political things that have happened there recently. South America could be fun too (especially since it would give them a chance to retcon Guyana into a region of a different name.)

Part of me is screaming out Los Angeles and the surrounding area. The region would shake every so often due to aftershocks of a big earthquake that happens before you start your journey. Or London. It could be foggy a lot of times and Pokémon Soccer is the national sport. You'll battle three trainers who are obsessed with cars and your rival will be a guy in w white suit and white helmet.

I'd love to see a region based off the Netherlands and Belgium together :x And if they were to make a new region in this generation, I think that'd be most logical alongside with the possibility of the South of France turning into a new region. But they'd pick the Netherlands if they'd want to make a game based on innovation, I guess. We've always been known for that :p

EDIT: failed to mention, though GameFreak was in Amsterdam 1,5 year ago for research?

Maybe we can expect something like the Orange Islands in the anime where we get an archipelago or something where we have to hop island to island with each island having its own unique culture and pokémon.

Some kind of island get up.
SO we'd have some nice water routes, and plenty of ocean to explore.

And lots of smaller towns, iconic structures, and a pretty distinct culture. You could have a cold, foggy town based on San Francisco with lots of Spheals around or an area based on San Juan Capistrano with lots of Swellows.

I know I have no trouble envisioning this. The only real trouble is that the West Coast is pretty straight with just a few exceptions and that would make for a boring looking map so you'd have to pick one area like LA, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, etc.
