    What would it be like? What new Pokémon would there be? What would the trainers be like? Would specialties would the towns have? What changes would you make to this map (I'll update it as suggestions are given.)


    [If you like the map, please favourite it on deviant art]


    I personally think it would be remarkably similar to Hoenn.

    Discuss!

    Maybe all the trainers are Burglar class?

    What? Who said that? In this day and age? Honestly!!

    I would personally be happy if they didn't introduce any more new Pokémon for a while yet. I think it would be an interesting game, since Australia is famous for having more or less every kind of major environment, including tropics, rainforest, deserts, year-round snow. I think the routes would be ridiculously long since Austrailia is a freaking huge place.

    Now this is just making me want to go to Aus right now...

    PS - I *love* your in-game map!

      Thanks for the compliment. :3

      And I agree, that's why I said it would be like Hoenn, it has all sorts of environments.

      Regarding new Pokémon, that's just personal preference I guess, but it could definitely be arranged to only use old Pokémon.

      I'm trying to work out where the starting town and where the League is. It's been a while since I studied Australian geography, but is the starting town that town to the north of Perth? I'm almost sure that the league is in Hobart as it's at a dead end, and dead ends always equal league locations in Pokemon games. XD

        Well originally I had planned that Hobart would be the starting town, as it's a significant city but not as large as the other capitals, and from there you would go to Melbourne, then clockwise throughout the region until you arrive back at Sydney, and from there go to the league in Canberra.

          Interesting theory, but the issue I have with is the top (very top) path is crossing the water, as well as from the very bottom up (starting town). So, it seems plausible but I would still say hoenn is part of Japan, :p. (sry for all you people in Australia)

          Putting the league in Canberra makes a lot of sense culturally. XD

          If Hobart is the starting town, how does one cross the Tasmanian Bay without Surf? Or is there a bridge there irl? :P

          Overall though, I'd have to agree with your assertion that the climate and landscapes would be remarkably similar to Hoenn. :D

          The only Pokemon you can catch would be Kangaskahn and that new crocodile pokemon.

          I really love this idea a lot. Perth would clearly be the starting city cause it's better. Hobart ain't got nothing on us. We need Koala's and Peacock's, which... are surprisingly common on Rottnest. Whyyyy can't this be real ;____;

              Hey, that's pretty cool. But on the map there'd be a lot less green and a lot more yellow around central Australia. It's mainly desert there.

              What sorta Pokemon would live here?
              Kangaskhan, the crocodile Pokemon, uh... I guess a lotta the common Pokemon would be here, Rattata, Zubat, Tentacool, Goldeen, Mareep, Murkrow, Wurmple... y'know the usual stuff.

              I think most of the Pokemon will be based on the animals normally found in Australia. So things like: snakes, spiders, crocodiles, and so on. I personally think that this is grand idea as it gives a whole new perspective to Pokemon; due to Australia being a completely alien region (at least, to the Japanese) and it'll be fun to see how Game Freak go about making it. XD;

                I like the idea of Hobart being the starting region. It seems so right and Canberra hosting the League is a really cool idea too. I'm loving this :P

                  Wow, very positive comments, I like it! :D

                  There isn't a bridge between Hobart and Melbourne in real life, but I thought in the game you could get on a ferry or something after you get your Pokémon.

                  The route crossing water could either be changed (I didn't notice that, somehow...) or it could be used stylistically to create a bridge route that doesn't actually exist.

                  Personally I'd love to see the possibilities for water Pokémon, such as Blue-Bottles and Great White Sharks.

                    good idea, but you are missing a few towns there, the border town Albury/Wadonga.

                          Tasmania is there, but why would New Zealand be on a map of Australia?

                          Because Australia and New Zealand go together like... emo characters and Final Fantasy. I could see New Zealand as a Battle Frontier style place, or perhaps the Pokémon League. I like Sydney as one of the starting places, the lab could be... inside the Opera House ;D

                          Do you know how long it will take to get to one town to another based on your map? All the regions so far are in Japan, so imagine a game where you explore the whole of Australia which is many times bigger.

                          New Zealand and Australia are way different, we kill possums and you protect them.

                          there could be seperate events that happen and make travelling easy.
                          and i love the map

                            Adventuring would be made fun, I feel it would be more open and free-roaming, and routes would be interesting and creative, like in Hoenn.

                              I really like the idea, it seems like a cool idea, however the routes would be massive and you'd be skipping all the smaller towns across Australia like Mildura and Bordertown and all that jazz, but if you could simplify it heaps and just make a region loosely based off Australia it would work great. I like the Pokémon League being in Canberra, too. Great idea.

                              Just one problem, why is Brisbane bigger than Melbourne? Just geographically wise Melbourne has a larger population, so Sydney and Melbourne should probably have the two town-things-on-the-map-where-it-looks-like-a-square. But yeah, great idea.

                                True that NZ and AUS is different. But NZ is significantly smaller so it could be used as a BF.

                                And there could be some train system implemented to make distances shorter.
                                The routes could start and thered be grass and all the normal stuff but then a train station that would cut more than half of the distance away.
