Does anyone know the location of all the Pokemon regions compared to the rest? I mean every Region. Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Orre, and even Fiore. I've been curious and I only know Kanto and Johto are side-by-side and Hoenn is southwest to them.

Anyone at all know? (Feel free to post where you think they might be if you're not entirely sure.)

Hm... I don't think we have any frame of reference. I think Orre is probably a lot further away from the others, given its mostly desert-like geography.

I've thought about this before too, actually. It'd be interesting to know where they are in relation to each other. Does the anime ever give any reference to that? o.o

I was just looking around Google Image Search for any maps and all I found was this thing.

Interesting.. I wonder where Sinnoh fits into that. o.o

It's like this: You know where Johto and Kanto are, right? Well, Hoenn is southwest of Johto (not so far) and Sinnoh is north from Kanto (kind of Northeast).

I saw Hoenn in an official Pokémon map, but I don't remember where and about Sinnoh, I read it somewhere I don't remember.

I don't have proof, but I'm sure it's like that.

Orre and Fiore's locations are unknown.

EDIT: You can look at Japan's map for reference. Johto is Kansai, Kanto is Kanto, Hoenn is Shikoku and Sinnoh is Hokkaido.

Don't look for Orre on a map of Japan, look on a map of the United States instead. Orre is based on Arizona.

I thought there was a quite in-depth explanation of this up on some wiki, I just can't find it now =/

Kanto and Johto are based off a region in Honshu, which I believe is mainly Tokyo and surrounding area.

As for Hoenn and Sinnoh, they are based off the islands of Shikoku and Hokkaido, respectively.

I'll get a map of Japan here to point off the spots:


Of the four largest islands you see up there, Shikoku is the smallest in size, and Hokkaido is the northernmost.

I don't think I'd have to point out Tokyo, though. XD

I think Fiore is close to Orre, because seeing as how Orre is famous for it's pokemon abuse, with Shadow pokemon in all. Which lead Fiore to make Rangers to protect pokemon.

I remember from somewhere that the mountain chains in Kanto, Johto, Orre, and Sinnoh were the same. I think the mountain chain in Northern Johto eventually becomes the one in Orre, which even more north, becomes Sinnoh.

The Sinnoh part is just a theory, though. I think Sinnoh must be very up north, seeing as how it's northern tip is all snow and ice.

And I assume Fiore is closer to Sinnoh than any other region, seeing as how the Ranger union decides to send the Manaphy egg there.

I thought Kanto was based on Kanto and Johto on Kansai. Found it on Wikipedia.
