Inspiration from France

I had the thought that, since the largest city in Karosu, Miare City is most likely based on Paris, the entire region of Karosu could be based on France. I started looking at the shape of France and I noticed it has a somewhat similar shape to Karosu. France has 5 major corners (arguably 6 if you want to count the southernmost corner) and Karosu is shaped like a 5 pointed star. The thing that is especially similar about the geography is the peninsula in the west. Both Karosu and France have a prominent peninsula in the west of the country/region. Anyone think these similarities are noteworthy? Here is a picture of France and Karosu side by side so you can see what I mean:

The article already mentions that the region is likely based on France. However, this wording is used because we haven't seen a complete image of the entire region. We don't know if it would be solely based on France. --HoennMaster 18:49, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Oops, I thought I read the entire article. That's embarrassing. --Alex726(TALK) 18:52, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Possible Japan Basis

If you look at Japan you can see a landmass that looks a lot like Kalos File:Pokemonworld.png

The Kalos landmass while based on europe also seems to take the shape of the Japanese Island of Shinkoku Shinkoku also looks like a five pointed star and the mountains at to the south and east of Kalos look like the shoreline of Shinkoku

Probably a coincidence. Chomper4 (talk) 02:40, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
