So Amazon may have slipped up in confirming that Alola is made up of more than one island:

For snow, I could see this justify it:

The legends will control the climate trough the sun and moon, as some speculate, the legend location will be on a mountain in which opposite sides have the mascot.

Perhaps their cosmic power ends up creating one spot within the region where nature is altered and we get an icy or snowy area.
They might not even need it seeing how Irl Hawaii island gets snow around winter. They can make it winter in that area like how Kalos had an area that looked like it was fall.

Here's an extensive article from Hawaii Magazine, talking about the varied climates in all of the Hawaiiian islands if anybody's interested:

http://www.hawaiimagazine.com/content/hawaii-has-10-worlds-14-climate-zones-explorers-guide-each-them

The Big Island has all the 10 that are listed, including the snow-capped mountain of Mauna Kea that I mentioned earlier. So yeah, it would be totally feasible for GF to implement all of these climates without it sounding outlandish for a tropical region like Hawaii.

Desert huh? We've had some kind of desert in every region since Hoenn. Only Kanto and Johto missed out. We got Marshes in every region since Sinnoh (okay, maybe the safari zones of Kanto, Johto, or Hoenn had some, but I don't recall).
So I think we'll get more. We also have had a mountain to explore in every region except for Kalos. (Past mountains were Mt. Moon (Kan), Mt. Silver (region is disputed), Mt. Mortar (J), Mt. Chimney (H), Mt. Pyre (H), Mt. Coronet (S), and Twist Mountain (U).) Alola is sure to have an explorable one.

Interesting bits of trivia there, I do hope we get all of these aspects back in Alola although I know there will likely be areas with a lot of water.

I can see there being like Seven water routes, some small, some as big as Hoenn's.

There will definitely be mountains in Alola, hopefully some volcanic ones too. I wonder how big the Region will be collectively as all of the Islands, surely it has the potential to be the biggest so far since there will be multiple islands.

Maybe we'll be seeing a lot of these as Pokémon, as the region will be based off of Hawaii...

I think just maybe we'll have something like Mt. Chimney, a volcano considering the region is based off Hawaii
It is interesting that Kalos is the only region that we don't traverse a mountain in, but if we get a resident mountain for Alola, I would agree to see a volcanic one to shake things up a bit.

A thing I am noticing with the nature of the Alola region could also be the connecting theme for the starters. Alola is a region that's abundant in land, sea and air - some speculators on Serebii Forums seem to be picking up that the starter theme appears to be land (Litten), air (Rowlet) and sea (Popplio).

I know land/air/sea was a theme done with the Hoenn mascot legendaries, but given Hoenn was a tropical region in a sense like Alola is, it's like this same pattern is happening again but this time to the starters.

If this air/land/sea theory holds up, then it seems to be unlikely that Rowlet would be Grass/Ground as a final evolution, and it's probably likely that Popplio would retain its water typing throughout, but of course this is just wild speculation, if anything.
A wild SPECULATION appeared!

I agree, I think that Rowlet will keep its Grass/Flying type. One of the starters that I personally would prefer to have a secondary Ground typing would be Popplio since it seems to be both a sea and land dweller like the past Water starters. I can't quite envision Litten to have a Ground typing, but I think anything is possible. Since Litten seems to be based on a cat that's nocturnal, I can see it getting a Dark type.

I honestly can't see a starter Pokemon changing its typing for the final evolution. Grass/Flying would be most suitable for Rowlet throughout its three stage evolutionary line imo.

I'm liking the Hawaii theme, though I hope we aren't in the water 50% of the time, not if every two seconds we're gonna run into water Pokemon. :|

Hopefully there's plenty of land and air and not just water, haha.

Snow it always cool to see, but it doesn't seem like a region that will have much of it.

Also, the characters aren't as chibi in this one, and that's a nice change.

I'll never forget IGN's OR/AS review... 7.8 "too much water". Just imagine if they did that again for this game due to the large body of water.

Should people really even care about the water? IMO, that's just being nitpicky...I really loved the Hoenn water routes because they were fun to travel through, and that was that. Criticizing the region because of the water routes seems dumb to me, but whatever.
It's because people think Alola will be like Hoenn, you know... a tropical region. The internet is never perfect, as people always say. I hated Hoenn's water routes as well but at least ORAS made them more tolerable.

IGN are renowned for giving terrible reviews and having bias towards particular franchises. If they introduce alternate methods of transport across the water routes then nobody would complain. In my opinion though I think a tropical based Region can't avoid having an abundance of water routes and quite frankly I have no issues with them.

Hopefully there'll be more options as far as Pokemon to surf on, too! While the addition of Wailmer, Kyogre, and Sharpedo was certainly pretty impressive, I want Gamefreak to expand beyond that and hopefully give some Gen VII newcomers a chance to carry the player around swifty across water.

It would be a stretch to ask for every water type's model to be a available (plus Surf can be learned by even non-water types, so there's that...), but a good handful more would be nice.
I can see Lotad's line, Wailord, Chinchou's line, Manaphy, Phione, the water starters lines (at least the final evolution) being added. I imagine that Swampert's surfing will be fast to go along with it's dex entry of being as fast as a ski boat or something like that.
