    You missed the Sevii Islands (which are not part of Kanto) and the Orange Islands (which haven't ever appeared in the games, but I still consider them canon).

    And Kanto and Johto are on the same landmass, so that's just one continent. And Hoenn (as well as some of the others) is probably too small to even be considered a "continent".

    Also, even the biggest regions seem much smaller than our "continents". It's hard to say just how big they are, since it's never indicated. The only indication I've come across was a path from Vermillion City to Lavender Town (with the Snorlax bridge) said to be 10 km in the Pokémon Adventures manga, but that might not be canon to the games as well. Either way though... each region seems relatively small. Smaller than most real-world countries...

    I think of each region as a small country rather than a whole continent

    Just what I was going to say, there is a map of the regions together somewhere, they look like countries.

    Regions are not continents. If they were continents they'd be called continents. Though, Region can mean a lot of different things including continent, but since this is a Japanese game I assume it's the informal use of the word.

    BTW, I am one who believes that the Pokemon world is nothing more then a parallel earth so, it's the size of Earth

    This shows all the regions except Unova, and how they would all merge together

    Your picture doesn't show up (for me anyway).
    But here is the official map (probably the one you're talking about)... it has all the regions from the main series except for Unova and the Sevii Islands.

    Try looking at my picture now. It should now be working.

    If not, then it shows all the regions from all the games and the orange islands

    Okay, which of those land masses resemble ANY of the regions to you?

    Does it really look like Unova is its own continent to you in that map? It is obviously a part of a much larger continent. There are four continents visible in that map.

    In my view, Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh are only States/Provinces of a much larger nation (who's name has yet to be revealed), and it's implied that Unova is further away from the other regions, so it's more or less a different country, or as I stated before, a State/Province of a larger nation. This theory would thus make the Pokemon world as large as our world.

    I agree with u. there are still a lot of regions to be explored, perhaps the pokemon world is bigger than ours

    I brought this from bulbapedia



    Almia is supposed to be right below Sinnoh... so at least 5 regions put together are around the size of Japan.

    I estimate that Unova is around the size of the eastern region of the USA.

    That's my assumption.
