Besides, Kanto may not be a peninsula, but it has a few peninsulas; where Pallet Town is and where Fuchsia City is.

I was compiling a list of where various anime locations and everything are in relation to game locations and it got me thinking. We know where the main regions are.. Kanto and Johto are side by side, Sinnoh is to the north, Hoenn is to the southwest of Johto, and the Orange Islands are south of Kanto and Johto. Bulbapedia says the Sevii Islands are far south of Kanto. Well, since the Orange Archipelago is south, I like to say the Sevii Islands are a bit east of them, so they are southeast of Kanto.
Then there's Unova, which is supposed to be far from the other regions. This is where I really started thinking. If you watch the first episode of BW where Ash, his mom, and Professor Oak are on the plane, it looks like the plane is approaching the eastern side of Unova where Nuvema Town is, from the east. Which made me realize, what if Unova is far west of the other regions. It would tie in to the western thing in the real world.. America is considered western, so that would make sense. I don't know if someone has already mentioned this, but thats just what I think.

I'm not sure if this was posted, but the names of the real life cities Pokemon cities were based on are here. ポケモン大百科 - 町・地方・都市のモデル
They are the Japanese names of cities, (Pallet Town/マサラタウン is based on Shizuoka), though it might be of use to someone who could update the bulba wiki articles.

Pokemon and Humans must learn to co-exist. Having taken Prof Oak's advice to be the absolute pinacle of meaning in pokemon, I have wrote a fanfic: Dusk on Victory Road, by charizardpal. Its at bulbagardens, or you can google it.
After looking at a lot of maps, like team rocket's world Unova map from the anime and some other maps, I have generated an understanding of the Pokemon world:
So, on one side of the world, we see a large-ish continent, like japan, but on a larger scale and rotated about 40 degrees or so to the right. This has Kanto and Johto connected in the middle (Sevii is south of there, Orange Islands are farther south), with Sinnoh off to the side, a little bit north. Almia is South Sinnoh, with Fiore off to the west of that region. Hoenn is south and west of Johto. Oblivia is the farthest west of the island regions, separated from the others. Even farther west is a large continent: America. America is not one nation, and it is mostly desert. Orre is right in the middle, with nine other regions bordering it, including Holon. On the far east of the America-like continent is a peninsula: Unova, where New York should be, but on a much larger scale. If you go farther east, you see an ocean (The Atlantic) and then a continent shaped like Europe and Africa fused together, with Great Britain connected to Europe and Scandinavia and Italy clearly visible. China/Asia is on the same continent, even farther east, but west of Kanto, ect. North of the center of the Atlantic is another continent, Arctica, if you will. There is no Antartica? And, of course, South America. A huge, round island, this contains the Andes and Mew's habitat. And Australia is somewhere far southwest of Hoenn. Yay! I did it! I described the whole world, every region! Woop!
[/QUOTE]You now WHAT is creepy?
Resort Desert being located at NY's Ground Zero. AND Relic Castle having two towers.[/QUOTE]
If the World Trade Center site were to have been represented in Unova, it would have literally been in the middle of Castelia City. The Desert Resort is FAR south of where ground zero would have been.
I edited my map so it is more accurate. Everything should be in it's correct spot expect Unova, Holon, Orre, Almia, and Oblivia. The regions I have not added yet are in the box. Also I do realize the Unova is supposed to be far from all the other regions, I put it on here so all the regions could be on one map. I would like to give credit to NikNaks Poke'Japan Map as it is largely based off of it.

I tweaked one of the above maps and placed things so they make a bit more sense. No where near perfect, but it looks pretty cool.
oops, well, turns out I don't know how to post pictures right, but I hope it can be seen.

It seems like there are two kinds of people: Those who make maps with Almia and Fiore close together, but not connected to anything else, and those who make Almia connect up with Sinnoh, which is probably better in terms of corresponding with Japan.
And the third kind of people, who just look at other people's maps and not make any maps of their own. I am the third kind. Fear me.
