Yes, I looked through the last 5 pages, couldn't find a similar thread. I tried to use the search button, but that never works anymore. I apologize if this thread has already been done before.
This thread is to discuss about what you'd like to see the next Pokemon region to be based on...
Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, the Sevii Islands, and Sinnoh were based on the various regions of Japan. While Unova was based (or the inspiration of) on New York City.
Since Unova is the start of a completely new area, it might be around the United States.
To the north of Unova: New York & Connecticut - least realistic since there wouldn't be an ocean in the region.
To the east of Unova: Long Island & Connecticut - Probable.
To the south of Unova: just the sea....
To the west of Unova: New Jersey - Probable
But I'd like to see a region based off Washington D.C... Or California.... Or Florida... Michigan would be nice since that's where I am from, but... It's not ideal since it has no ocean, but there are always exceptions.. :D
If GameFreak decides to pull another Unova next generation, then it'd probably take place somewhere in Europe: England, France, Germany, Italy, etc.
Australia would be pretty neat. I think it would be similar to how Hoenn was received by its fans.
There's also a slight possibility of GameFreak going back to Japan to fill up the regions left, such as Chugoku, Shikoku, and Tohoku.
But I'd like to see GameFreak continue around the United States so that Unova doesn't feel isolated.
What about you guys? :)
