I prefer a fuller detailed region like Shinnoh, which is why Platinum is still the best Pokemon game in my opinion. A full region feels more REAL somehow, though I guess it's because I was born and raised in Alaska. I never liked the 2-region thing of GSC/HGSS, because it killed all the potential Johto had. Instead of being its own region with its own Pokemon, it's merely an extension of Kanto. They don't even get their own Elite 4. In short, Johto is a sad pathetic region, they could have done so much more with it, instead of having it cling to Kanto. Shinnoh can stand on it's own 2 feet, so I'd rather have regions like that.
