    Default The Pokemon World IS the real World

    The Games keep mentioning the real world countries, like AFRICAN Elephant, CHINA, AMERICA. Also note that the 'Regions' are exactly that, regions. Not countries, hence the bus like route systems with the 'Japanese' areas. Each 'region' is stated to be based on a real life region, ie Kanto=Kanto, Johto=Kansai, Hoenn=Kyuushu, Shinnoh/Sinnoh=Hokkaido, Isshu/Unova=New York/Jersey, Orre=Arizona. These places just have different names and are shaped differently in the Pokemon world for gameplay purposes, but the countries names are the same.

    This is likely from Gen2 onwards, when 'Fantasy Counterpart' kicked in due to Pokemon becoming an international hit, as Kanto has the same name as the real Kanto region.

    It's Earth, but it's not this Earth. It's an alternitive version of this one.

    I heard Movie places were different tho.
    Latios and Latias movie looks awful like Venice

    The Lucario movie looks like Germany where that Disney Castle is.

    Manaphy movie looks like of Rome, the city of Naples and the island of Capri, all in Italy to me.

    Arceus movie setting looks like Greece to me

    Well, that's because they do to those locations and draw inspiration from them for the movie's setting.

    In Red and Blue you climb a building to get a Eevee.Next to the Pokeball is a guy who says:

    "I know everything about the world inside your gameboy!" and some other stuff.

    So how can it be in the real world if people freely admit that it is in a gameboy?
