At this stage we don't know anything about the region Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will be set in, so that leaves the door wide open to speculation galore! Regions are one of my favorite aspects of a main series game, and they're what really define the character and feel of a generation/game. So what do you speculate the region for this game will be like? Or will it even be set in a new region at all?? Share your thoughts and have fun speculating!

Two new games, question is, where are they taking place? Would it be in Southern Kalos, or somewhere different? What place did they base the region from?

Saw the trailer and observed the portion with the Horsea fountain (looks like an aquarium... Because they had pictures of a spheal and staryu on the structure), it feels rather European. Could they use a new region based on say... Germany? And linked to Kalos in later-game?

This game seems to introduce vehicles too... This region should be huge.

I'd hope for another region based on a place in the world that isn't Japan; perhaps another area in Europe. The French inspiration and culture really shone through in Kalos, and I'd love to see them step outside of their comfort zone and do that again...perhaps Germany, or Spain, or Italy...or the UK. The UK would be best. /notbiasedatall

I want some ancient ruins regardless of where it's set, though. Maybe some with an Egyptian or Aztec motif, just because. Or maybe an old castle to explore?

I really hope for a story that takes the game beyond the Pokemon universe, potentially into space but on a much larger spectrum than ORAS did in the Delta Episode. I think with the game titles that it's certainly a large possibility that could happen :)

Well that hotel in the concept art resembled a hotel in Singapore pretty well, so I can assume that this new region will incorporate elements of that area. As for it tying with Kalos...that can also be plausible. It looks like a tropical-esque setting similar to Kiloude City (the palm trees were my biggest sign).

I really hope so, maybe that will finally give us an answer to the question what Pokémon live it outer space. The region itself could be based on the US then, since that's where NASA is stationed. (And we've already had Japan (a lot) and Europe now, so America might be a very plausible follow-up.)

Going from the picture, it's clearly tropical and the roof design, gives me feelings of Australia, a lot of older buildings in Australia mainly have curved tin roofs. My hope for a UK based region is slowly waning away now (I wanted to see cobbled streets, terrace houses, a lovely countryside, royalty...), but Australia would be great too, I mean, who wouldn't want to see Sydney or Melbourne? (I'd love a reference to my two favorite TV shows too, haha) and Australia would be a great setting for a region, I mean we have some of the deadliest of animals!

Since they're adding the Chinese language into the game for the first time, I can imagine the region being based on China. If not, I'm hoping for a European based location again like Britain or Italy.
There's another thread that's mentioning the new region might be based on Singapore, which is an Asian country, so that seems close enough.

Ah yes Australia would be a great idea for a region design (and I happen to be from Sydney myself), especially with all the unique animal species we have here that could make for good new Pokemon designs (we still haven't had a koala Pokemon yet, really?) and a good number of the major cities here would make for good city designs.

Most people in Singapore are Chinese so that fits well together. Based on the same thought it could be Hong Kong, too, or maybe Taiwan.

Since Red, Blue, and Yellow Pokemon are compatible with the new games, could the Gen. 7 region be Kanto, only updated with new features and technologies? IMO it would make sense because the games will be somewhat related.

Hmmm...I don't think so, somehow.I can't really see them revisiting an old region in a brand new game outside of a remake. I got the impression that Red, Blue and Yellow would be compatible with Pokemon Bank to establish that link to the past titles that wasn't present before, rather than as a hint for things to come.

If anything, that link suggests to me a lot of the Gen I Pokemon might not be available in Sun and Moon. I doubt they'll go quite that far, but that'd be the indicator I'd take away from that before a hint of the next games being back in Kanto.

I would highly doubt it. The titles of these games really don't make a whole lot of sense for them to be based in Kanto and not to mention the art that was shown doesn't appear to show anything that we have ever seen in Kanto. We also have new Pokemon so I am fully inclined to believe this is a completely unexplored region.

Chase is right, it's more likely a new and currently unnamed region than Kanto.

You realize that GF actually has done that before?

However, that's only even more of a reason to believe that SM won't be RBY sequels. RBY already had sequels, and threequels rarely work out well. What left is there to tell about Kanto when GSC already gave the region closure? The door was slammed pretty hard on Team Rocket's story, and it would only feel ridiculous and forced for them to return for a third time. And, who wants to see a completely brand new, unrelated Evil Team in an iconic, familiar region? Kanto stops being Kanto when you start replacing all of the old characters with brand new ones just for the sake of story.

SM are very likely Generation 7 and will be set in a brand-new region. We could still see an older region return as a postgame storyline, but it's been so long since GF last did that, the odds are pretty low.

Well, obviously I meant as the focal point of the story, not as a postgame addition. I didn't think I needed to make that point specifically...but here I am, retroactively stating it.

I think it will be a new awesome region that is unexplored and full of adventure!

I doubt it will happen, but I would love that! :3
Except that we might find this map small with all we got now.. I would be nice as an expansion. Like they did in B2/W2.
