It's quite possible that Cinnibar is a part of the Sevii Islands, as Midway Island, for instance, is technically a part of the Hawaiian chain. evkl 19:26, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Where did that information come from that Shino is based on Hokkaido? --Greengiant 02:35, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Because, you gotta look at the released Corocoro scans from this month ==Jade 2.56pm, 14 June 2006 (AEST)
And what do you know about Japanese geography, eh? Could be Hokkaido - but the mountain chain makes me suspect Hokuriku - which is on the west side of the Japanese Alps. - 振霖T 07:22, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
To anyone who wishes to edit this page so as to state that Hokkaido has been confirmed - learn Japanese beforehand and refrain from counting on unofficial web sites. CoroCoro only referred to Shin'ō as an island similar to Hoenn - that leaves Shikoku and Hokkaido. It is plain to see that the map, which has been largely revealed to us, takes the shape of Hokkaido. It is for this that some web sites such as Filb.de claim it to be based on Hokkaido as if it were confirmed.
Unlike Zhen Lin, I am absolutely confident in the veracity of Hokkaido. Even so, the correct wording is to be used at the very least until a full map has been obtained. Hoenn was confirmed to have been modeled after Kyūshū not long after Ruby and Sapphire had seen release. That said, Sevii Islands and Orre have thus far remained in the realm of speculation - but at least we have the resources provided by the games. --Unown Lord
What about the orange islands and fiore? Pokeant 14:36, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

I mean look at Sinnoh's shape...

Funny thing about orre...(get it?Orrezona((Arizona and Orre)).).

--Snorlax 06:18, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Hm. I was flipping through my FireRed game the other day, and there's lots of Indian elephants mentioned in the Pokedex entries... is this worth mentioning? TinaTheKirlia 02:04, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Pikachu's power? Definately. --Kyoufu Kawa 18:25, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

I was watching Pokémon Shipwreck and i noticed that brock tells about noah and the ark. Can we put that somewhere? --File:Spr 3e 115.gifTheryguy512File:Spr 3e 202.gifFile:Spr 3e 327.gif 22:50, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

What the heck does that have to do with geography? --Zeta 21:58, 21 October 2007 (UTC)
It doesn't, it has to do with history of our world Count Caterpie File:Ani010MS.gif 23:22, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
Wrong again. It has to do with the mythology of our world, not history. You shouldn't too much into it, anyway, it was just a cop out. They didn't feel like making a whole new religion for the series, so they stole the most readily available one.--Nostalgia 14:03, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

About the real world locations mentioned section...

some of these things just have to go. The Fantina dialogue thing doesn't really have anything to do with it since that only happened immediately before the battle, not when you first encounter her at the contest hall or after you beat her. Besides, she could have just been using a fake accent. I mean, Blue was using a french accent when he fought you on the St. Anne, and the last time I checked, he never visited France or anything, never spoke in that accent prior to it, and immediately dropped the accent right after you beat him. Also, i doubt that an Indian elephant should count towards a real world location (maybe real world animal, but definitely not a real world location.)

anyways, thats all for now.

~~Weedle Mchairybug~~


Actually Fantina says something about moving to Hearthrome(spelling might be wrong) City before the battle.I am not sure but I think that backs up that she is from France

~~Starfire~~


Just because she said that she moved to hearthrome city doesn't necessarily mean that she was from France. I mean, if she explicitly stated that she was from France (or canada, even), then yes, that would have merit. But she never really said where she moved from. she only gave a vague mention of another country. I mean, for all we know, she could have just as easily come from the Orange or sevii Islands (I think of the Sevii Islands as an entirely seperate place than an actual region considering how it and Kanto seem to have somewhat of a feud before you arrived that wouldn't be of this scale if it was a region.], or Heck, even Orre (they seemed to imply through a news report in colosseum that it has entirely different regions due to the fact that they mentioned that several regions were attacked by Abnormal Pokemon, and since Kanto/Johto/Hoenn never even referenced being attacked by them, that seems to imply that it is an entirely different country in and of itself.).

I mean if you wish, go ahead, but I just want to say that I'm not too sure about that. I mean, if she was explicitly said to have come from france (like the Trainer dex in Pokemon FRLG said about Lt. Surge [I don't count the "Lightning American" thing as evidence that he is American since Some of the Gym Leaders were given similar nicknames even though they really don't have any corollation with each other (Tomboyish Mermaid, Elegant Princess, among others comes to mind [Misty's not a mermaid because she doesn't have a fish tail, she doesn't sit on rocks to comb her hair {her hair is very short, anyways}, and she never really stated that she was a Mermaid or related to them. As for Erika, she never really said that she was related to any royal family.].).].) then, yes, Go on ahead.

But since she never really stated that she was from France (her speaking french doesn't count since 1. she seemed to be faking it since the only time she ACTUALLY spoke french was when you meet up with her, which she drops when she is close to losing, and 2. Even IF she was actually able to speak french, that doesn't mean she is from France. remember, Canada, Jamacia as well as some african countrys speak French as part of their language.), we shouldn't say that she was from France.

Regarding the map...

The map is veerrryyy wrong! It should be like this: japanforonceandforeverdz3.png Or maybe this is clearer: japanys0.png Please people, it's a common made mistake, but it isn't that hard to see, is it?

Deoxys reference

The "North Pole" doesn't necessarily have to be a reference to a real-world location. Every planet has a north and south pole. Ketsuban 20:02, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Antarctica or North Pole?

I'm confused. I could have sworn that Deoxys landed in Antarctica, yet this article says it's the North Pole. Could someone clarify? JirachiWishmaker0802 10:59, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

It's possible different tellings of the franchise have different landing spots for Deoxys. For all we know, had Electric Tale of Pikachu reached Hoenn, Deoxys could have crashed in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii in that telling. --Shiningpikablu252 14:35, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
You know, I think we should eliminate it from the references section, as the term "North pole" doesn't necessarily hint at Antartica. Besides, Antartica isn't even the North Pole, if anything, it's more the exact opposite term. Weedle Mchairybug 00:21, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Could someone update the map?

Almia should be included, as it's attached to Sinnoh.

Game Systems

Would that be a reference to the real world because they are made in the real world?

Harlan County, Kentucky

In my sperpetic,Oreburgh reminds me around my home County, Harlan County , also the mines.The Aura Wolf !!!! 23:03, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Your what?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 23:04, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Lots of places have mines. He means perspective. — THE TROM — 23:06, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
There's pretty much no chance that a Japanese game is referring to your home county. There are many more notable mining areas, many in Pennsylvania, for example. I'm sure there's even more in Japan that are more likely. The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 23:07, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
True, but then again, the Metal Gear series was a Japanese game (it was made in Japan, and was originally intended to be Japanese exclusive), and yet most of it's locations were anywhere BUT Japan (In fact, the only REAL Japanese references that was in the MG games was Master Miller, Akiba, "Kuwabara, Kuwabara", and the Tsuchinoko from "Snake Eater", which is pretty lacking anyways.). Heck, Sootopolis's geography was inspired by Santorini, Greece. For all we know, Harlan County could have served as a minor inspiration. Weedle Mchairybug 00:26, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Map with Almia

I've made a map with Almia included. I think it's better to use this one File:Pokemonworld.png --Furanty 17:13, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
