    Australia.

    Yeah, definitely looks like it will be based off France (or Europe).

    You read that on NeoGAF, and I was the one who posted it. ;p
    Actually I read it on a local community's forum. Someone copypasted it. Now I know the source. =P

    Definitely Paris, I mean look at this: Twitter / BulbaNewsNOW: What could that building be ...

    The cobbled streets, the Poke Eiffel Tower, the fashion sense (anyone who's been to Paris will know that the people there are VERY well dressed). This also seems quite french Twitter / BulbaNewsNOW: Interesting statue! ...

    It won't be exclusively Paris (desert area for example), just as Unova wasn't exclusively NYC

    This place reminds me of Orre: Twitter / BulbaNewsNOW: Desert area. http://t.co/QnGkPNVD . Does anyone agree?

    Also, the building left to that statue reminds me of Notre Dame.

    This could actually be the region N left to as well as the original BW protagonist, but I won't get too ahead of myself yet.

    If you turn the Z on its side...

    Europe, eh? I hope we see a Venetian-style city. France is awesome but why not throw in a little Italy, Spain, and Britain?

    I hope not. GF usually base main-series regions on a city plus nearby towns (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Sapporo, NYC) so unless this region is some dozen times the size of Unova, it would be generalising Europe too much. For comparison, Île-de-France (the province around Paris) has a similar population to Ontario, Ohio and is more populated than NYC (11 million vs 8 million, by my reckoning). It would be a shame to write off the diversity of Île-de-France as inferior to that of the other cities I mentioned.

    Venetian-"style"? Certainly - GF borrows liberally from architecture no matter what the region is, cf Santorini in Hoenn. But I can't see GF generalising this Gen VI region as simply "Europe", ignoring smaller countries like Belgium, Andorra and most of Eastern Europe for the "theme park version" of Europe.

    Yeah but isn't basing it off of just the city a bit wrong? Only Johto/Unova do this, while Sinnoh,Hoenn, and Kanto are fairly accurate representations of the areas of Japan they're in. I mean :just Paris is pretty dull cause of how inland it is, but if they were to do something like Paris and west france they can pull off a decent looking region, with some south Britain for added effect. Hell come to think of it give us a smaller britain in game with northwest france and call it a day.

    I mean come on, give it some artistic flair, and its a pretty nifty region.
