  • This is an extremely detailed and interesting article! It should definitely be a Featured Article. --Shiny Noctowl 14:41, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
  • I agree. While it not might be a real relevant one, it definitely has a lot to offer. -Politoed666 01:58, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
  • This is by far the most interesting article I've seen on Bulbapedia! I always thought that they were completely fictional places! Definite yes. --- Gazco !!!! my page|Talk 17:01, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
  • I would definitely support this article. It is one of the most interesting on the site, as well as one of the most educational. Showing what each of the place names means is an excellent way to give people from outside of Japan an idea as to how Pokémon gets its names. --- Admachina 14:02, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
  • I have to agree, it's a very detailed article that deserves to be featured. --Lime 20:23, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Very informitive and well written. --Theryguy512 23:26, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Worthy of being featured. Personally, it's one of my favorite articles on the entire wiki. --Zeta 21:49, 21 October 2007 (UTC)
  • This article very much deserves to be a featured article. Trainer-c
  • Great article, but it seems to me that the map is a little off. I think that in the games they compacted a bit more space into Johto, like they did in Sinnoh, and that Cianwood may be the small island between Honshū and Shikoku. Zeyfre
  • This article is one of the most interesting I've read on Bulbapedia. --LynnCreed 19:43, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
  • I agree with Gazco; I never thought that the Poké world was based on the real one (other than the mentions of Mew being in (?)Brazil and Lt Surge as the "Lightning American", the Poké world never seemed to noticeably attempt to parallel the real one), and I definetely support its being featured.

  • This article just put me in perspective with how in tune these two worlds are. --Munch 23:14, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Interesting and fun. Amazed me how the world of pokémon is realted yo Japan.--Wowy 02:00, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
  • It's a great way to understand the tie between Pokemon and the real word. I could also help others to fully understand the concepts of Pokemon.--☆Tavisource 02:04, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Very interesting stuff. It's all info you'd think you should know, but nobody does... the subject matter as well as the detail make it an awesome article to feature on the front page. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 08:31, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Very interesting. It's great to look and conpare with our world it's should be made. =)--☆Coolピカチュウ! 08:49, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Wow, this article is very popular. I however, noticed that much of this artcile is a large chart. I mean, its very acurate in showing what area correlates with that Japanese city/mountain/geographical formation, but I believe a featured article should have a little more to it. All it has it the place and a little blurb about what it is in Japan. Then it goes on to mention other locations mentioned, but I still think the article is a little, well, trivial. --Mooites Talk to me, baby! 04:12, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
  • It's an interesting idea, but the Comments section of the chart feels very.. empty. I wanted to read more about the details of these places and what makes them so similar to the games, not just the names of the locations! They don't make much effort to fill in the huge number of blank blocks they have in that chart. I'm also not sure that it's anything more than a series of general observations. It's entirely speculative - which is fun, and the accuracy is impressive, but it's still empty and not necessarily 100% factual. Again, I'm only talking about the chart here. The real world references in the Pokedex entries are factual and indeed awesome. Unfortunately that doesn't make up for the bulk of the article.. -- Cayh
