Sinnoh is my favorite region just take a look at mt stark or new moon island or flower pardise expessically were legendaries are its amazing and detailed
Maybe the water reminded you of Hoenn. Aside from the whole Ruby and Saphhire side quest. I would be reminded of Hoenn too.
Anyhoo... I definitely put Hoenn in the top spot for Main Game regions.
Sinnoh is my last pick, oddly enough. It was the one I was looking forward to the most when first announced. You had Hoenn, the Okinawa equivalent, taking care of warm tropical weather. And then you had Sinnoh, the Hokkaido equivalent, taking care of cold and snow. What a perfect balance for the regions besides Johto/Kanto!
But there's a lot of land, which is something I've come to realize that I hate. Hoenn, Johto, and Kanto all have really awesome water routes for you to get off the mainland and explore. Sinnoh... has mountains. Specifically, one big mountain. Maybe I'm just naturally opposed to caves, but the terrain just really wasn't kind to me.
But Sinnoh does have some amazing cities and locations that I hope Isshu lives up to. Sunyshore, Jubilife, Snowpoint, Hearthome, Canalave, Pastoria (Eterna and Oreburgh not so much). Lakeside Resort, Valley Windworks, Fuego Ironworks, Eterna Forest, Iron Island, the Great Marsh. Lots of old Pokemon ideas re-envisioned.
The best part of course is all the secret that we get to discover. Let's hope Isshu has many secrets.

The one aspect I always liked about Sinnoh was how it was shrouded in mythology myself. You had Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Arceus, Azelf, Mespirit, and Uxie being heralded as gods, and being treated as such. Sure Johto was the first one to do with Ho-oh and Lugia, but with Sinnoh, I couldn't help but shake the feeling that it felt like that they made a religion out of it.
As for the land, Kanto was a little boring in Gen I and the Gen III remakes, but it was expanded on in Gen II with it's ever expanding technology with the Train, and the fact they replaced the tower with a radio one, there's also them not doing anything about Cinnabar as well. Johto land was one of the few things it had going for it, especially with it's massive lake, the lighthouse, the city. Though I do love how Hoenn was different and how they treated the land differently, especially with places like Fortree. Though with Sinnoh, I saw it as the best parts of all of them to make for one interesting land, you had a city, a marsh, a city that runs on technology, the mountains.
I'm interested in seeing if Isshu land is more like cities like New York, Shanghai, Tokyo, and the like.
No one was dedicated to whatever ancient religion may have based itself around Arceus in modern Sinnoh, at best was Cynthia who studied mythology.
Ho-Oh actually had monks and in the remakes, seemed like there was a secret society with Mr. Pokemon and Elm sending you on a journey knowing you'd bring back Ho-Oh.
dumbs who are going to be obsessive about this. I mean there was a massive amount of stupidity about how Lickilicky should have existed in Gen III because you can breed roll-out onto it.

Too bad it doesn't make that much sense if you play SoulSilver though. I'm still confused that they wanted Lugia over Ho-Oh, but yeah, the story does make more sense if you play HeartGold.
True, Los Angeles does border the ocean and desert, but they're not quite built the same, size or shapewise (heck, the greater LA area's bigger than all of Hoenn)
Still, the geography is a bit different. I can now almost see San Fransisco compare, except Hiun City has land on both sides. Other than that, it makes sense.
OH, even better! People compare Hiun to New York City, and now I see why! It's just like the southern tip of Manhattan Island (even has a road going around the outside). There's a river on each side. And before NYC became what it is, it used to be a lot of smaller towns. Just add some extra geographical features (mountains and such) and voilà: Isshu-chiho awaits!
No, that's stupid too! Never mind, pay no heed. Forget what I said. Just a collection of dumb ideas.
Yeah, secret areas are nice...I remember Hoenn had a bunch of those, like that abandoned ship. I don't think I realized it existed even till Emerald, even though there was an episode about it.The best part of course is all the secret that we get to discover. Let's hope Isshu has many secrets.
