    I like the train idea; based on The Ghan, maybe?

      Great idea! Australia, as a Pokemon region? Beautiful! The range of terrians... wow.
      The train idea is interesting. I like the sound of it.
      New Zeland should be an event island, or special one, after the main game.

        This would be awesome if they actually made this, although it will likely never happen, but there could be a Safari Zone instead of Australia Zoo, and the range of pokemon and terrains! Oh my god! I want to go exploring now.

        But NZ is roughly the same size as Japan, so you're gonna have a BF the size or even bigger than Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh combined.

          We can scale, though. Australia doesn't have to be that big, we can say it's slightly bigger than Kanto, because regions are scaled down anyway.

            Agree. I want to see the center of the map be more yellow.

              I think I've mentioned before the maps are based on elevation, not terrain.

              But the Khangaskan line would definitely be expanded upon if they were in the Aussie game.

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


                    I personally think it would be remarkably similar to Hoenn.

                    Discuss!
                    AAAaaahhhhhHHH!!!!! it looks awesome man! it feels like i really wanna go play and explore there right now! You're the best! Come to think of it, the sinnoh region looks similar to australia dont you think? I mean its a huge island too isnt it?
                    Mmm i dont know much about australia and its cities all i know is where Sydney is LOL. But i have this idea... You can get the ability of using Surf in the big city that is at the very top. Then you can cross the water on the right and get to the other town. And then get the Dive HM ability afterwards (BTW love this HM is my favorite) and explore the ocean sorrounding the island and the coral reefs woohooo!!!! (I beleive diving is a popular activity in Australia isn't it?, upps or maybe not, aren't there TOO many SHARKS?!). There can also be more small towns and roads that penetrate through the deserts and forests even if they dont actually exist, that way you can explore more of its environments. I wish I could help more is very interesting.

                    Also a southamerica region sounds good too! Yeah the Amazon! (But it will be filled with carvanhas LOL) Why dont you make a map like that one too?!

                      Thank-you!

                      You're right, diving is popular here, and that was quite a fun HM. I loved the first time I went underwater and found Pokébattles with underwater Pokémon.

                      Because I'm a huge fan of sea-life and underwater in general.

                          I'm not interested in any large "world-wide" projects using this.
                          I've been approached dozens of times already and I just really don't care what they're doing.
                          If someone was making a game set in Australia, it would be different, or at least a worldwide game where Australia is a single league. For some reason I hate the idea of it being split in to states.

                          Anyway, Melbourne is a nice city, but I figured Hobart is the perfect size for a starting town, since it's a capital city but it's not huge at all.

                              In Australia, the Pokemon there would be varied, predominantly desert Pokemon. Kangaskhan and Psyduck would be prime candidates as Pokemon residents as well as Cacnea and Cacturne. The trainers there would specialize in Rock or Ground Pokemon.

                              Yeah, it probably would be like that, PlatinumDude. But don't forget; Australia is surrounded by ocean, so there would be a few water Pokemon as well.

                                We would definately see Kangaskans in Australia. What about starters then?

                                  Come to think of it, Australia would make a perfect setting for a region. I'd be surprised if it hadn't already come up to GF yet.

                                  Anyways, I think we'd have a lot more ground, fire, and rock type pokemon in the interior of the continent. The Great Barrier Reef would be filled with water pokemon of all looks and abilities. Where exactly does it snow in Australia? Because we could have some ice types too :D

                                  Australia could have been Isshu. I mean you've got the sort of natural vs. industralization thing going on. Aborigines (natural) and industrialization brought by immigrants and the settlers from England.

                                    great idea i am loving it, I think the idea of hobart being the starter town is great!

                                    One question though, why is darwin a red square? it has the smallest population out of any of the capital cities, even smaller then Hobart!

                                        Well, regarding the map, I don't really like it for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I think that it should be yellower in the center(I know you said it was based on elavation and not terrain, but it would look a lot better that way). The second thing, which is probably bothering me the most, is the fact that the current map shows the region to be extremely small. To me, this map can only hold 2 gyms, as I like to be able to explore a big area before I battle a gym leader(completely the contrast of when you're not allowed to leave Pewter City before you beat Brock, which really drains the fun of challenging him) and being able to challenge them not strictly in order, but having various options in which order I challenge them. The third thing, not really relating to the map but while the regional pokedex would certainly be interesting, I simply don't see there being more than 100 pokemon in the regional dex, which, as you know, is a really small amount of pokemon to have.

                                        Still, I really would like to see this as a game. If you know how to hack, you should make this(use a Ruby Rom, you'll have Dive already(lol, Pokemon Aussie Version)). If you are interested in making this, then the only thing I would suggest is to have a cliff somewhere on the coast which would eternally be at sunset, and then have Delcatty at lv. 30 available there. I don't know if there are actually any cliffs by the coasts in Australia, but it would be definitely cool.

                                          As long as there is a dingo Pokemon to go with the game, I would totes play it if it existed. That map looks pretty awesome.

                                            This would be pretty cool. I want a dingo pokemon! I think it would be a ground or rock type. I think they usually like rocky areas. And I think they mostly are in desert areas. (I'm Australian, yet I know none of this xD ). I think it would be mostly ground and water types. And we do have quite a lot of forest so some grass pokemon too. And then some other types of course, and some of our old favourite pokemon.
                                            Oh and I want a magpie bird. And a wombat. Wombats are cute. And echidna. And bugs. We get a lot of bugs. Doesn't anywhere get a lot of bugs though?

                                            I second the idea of battleing team Bogans! Although i think i might feel weird playing a pokemon game where I can relate to the locations. It's unusual for me.
