So from the looks of it (the name, the area) the region is based around Hawaii almost definitely. How do you feel about this? Would've you preferred Spain (as people predicted?) Do you like the name? What do you think we can expect in this region knowing it's most likely like, 99% based on Hawaii now?

Re-watching the trailer and I'm loving how colourful the Region looks! It seems like we start out to the east of the Region right along the coastline and then move west towards the main Region where the cities are located.

I hope that's not the entire map. Kind of doubt it's all, but I thought the same thing about Kalos.

I wonder if the region will focus on the them of 'welcome' like Kalos was 'beauty'. The Japanese video's life action parts implies that the meaning of 'Aloha' wasn't missed by the directors.

I knew we were getting a Hawaiian region from the moment the concept art was first leaked, and I think they really paid attention to detail with the atmosphere of the region, along with the buildings and palm trees.

Here's a more clearer image of what was shown in the trailer. It seems too small to be a Region with eight gyms and so on, so perhaps we will be able to travel to multiple islands? Hawaii is made up of several relatively large islands, maybe it will be possible to travel between them being close to one another?

It looks small to me as well. But I don't know why they would just show Island one.

Hawaii has 8? Islands I think. Maybe each island is a gym.

The south water route is not blocked. It continues south. This could be to other islands or Kalos. Remember that Masuda said that XY storyline would be wrapped up in a unique way and in the same interview, he said 'flowers'.


Looking at the image, it looks like there is 1 somewhat big town and then maybe 2 small towns.

The top looks a little cut off tbh. I think island travel would be cool (I know someone was asking for non-linear so hey if that's the case you have your wish!!) Although I wouldn't mind it all being connected BUT WHATEVER if that means we get Surf early.... (maybe??) then I'm good.

Kind of looks like a small Hoenn with thos islands to the right xD. Looking at the shape of the island it looks like the most populated island (I had looked it up back in March, irc it's Maui).

Edit: I misremembered. It's Oahu with the most people. Looking at the shape it seems about right ^_^.

People were predicting Spain? Lol. I saw a video a month or two ago that analyzed the initial announcement of Sun and Moon and basically proved to me it would be Hawaii, so I got exactly what I expected with this, and I'm happy about that.

Expected it. Name seems to simple and just lazy to me but meh, I'm more concerned with its visuals.

Obviously Hawaii. What we can see in the video is way too small for a region. Wouldn't be a surprise to have multiple islands like real Hawaii.

The only thing I regret a bit is another tropical region after Hoenn. But Hawaii is a great place so they can do awesome stuff here!

Alola sounds like Aloha, which means "hello" in Hawaiian. Nice to see all the attention to detail they have done with this region, and hopefully we'll learn more in coming months.

First!

OMG, Hype!!!!

Much like the rest of us! What's got you hyped the most? :) For me it's definitely the storyline... which hasn't come out yet but I am ~hopeful~ But the region name is pretty cool when you think about it, so it's exciting to think of what will come in the region. c:

The name seems a bit lazy, but not as lazy as Kanto (which shares the name as the place it's based on, for those of you who don't know).

But, it looks like Castelia City and Lumiose City had a baby and made that city.


It looks amazing!
