The '''Sinnoh''' region (Japanese: '''シンオウ地方''' ''Shin'ō-chihō'') is a [[region]] of the [[Pokémon world]]. It is located north of [[Kanto]], [[Johto]]<!--Sinnoh Sound-->, and [[Hoenn]]<!--AG187-->. It is the setting of {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}. It is comprised of the large mainland, the north-eastern island of the [[Battle Zone]], and several {{si|Pokémon League|smaller islands}} on both sides of the [[region]].
Most of Sinnoh's routes are on land, having very few water routes, in vast contrast to [[Hoenn]]. The region is divided by [[Mt. Coronet]], roughly comparable to how the continent that Kanto and Johto make up is essentially a contiguous region.

==Cities, routes, and other locations==
[[File:Sinnoh Region.png|thumb|right|300px|A detailed version of the in-game map of the Sinnoh region from [[Generation IV]] games.]]
Sinnoh has fourteen [[List of cities and towns by name|cities and towns]], as well as three "areas", and a {{si|Pokémon League}}. These sites act as settlements for people to live and work in a functioning society. The [[Fight Area]], the [[Survival Area]] and the [[Resort Area]] all act as towns, however, they appear to be more of a tourist destination and are not considered cities or towns. These three "areas" are located off Sinnoh's mainland and on the [[Battle Zone]], which is considered a sub-region of Sinnoh and is implied by some living on the island as a different region altogether, not unlike how the [[Sevii Islands]] are considered a separate region from [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]]. Thus, Sinnoh has a total of eighteen settlements all over Sinnoh, the largest amount of sites in the [[Pokémon world]] so far.
The Sinnoh region has 30 different [[routes]], which are passages permitting Trainers to travel from one location to the next with relative ease. Much like [[Hoenn]] before it, Sinnoh's routes are numbered so that they don't follow sequence directly from previously-known regions' routes. Routes in Sinnoh are numbered from {{rtn|201|Sinnoh}} to {{rtn|230|Sinnoh}}. Compared to previous generations, there aren't many water routes; there are many land routes and mountains. The idea of routes with differing [[weather conditions]] was also brought ahead from [[Generation III]]. For the first time ever in a Pokémon game, some of Sinnoh's routes have snow covering them. Another quirk about the routes in Sinnoh is that some of them do not go directly east/west or north/south, but actually turn before reaching their destination, most notably {{rt|212|Sinnoh}} and {{rt|210|Sinnoh}}, which both have two limbs of equal length. While Hoenn's {{rt|114|Hoenn}} did this on the [[Game Boy Advance]], it was not to this scale, so one may presume that the GBA was limited in this sense.
Although it has few [[water route]]s, Sinnoh is known to be rich in water, and has three lakes at the northernmost ([[Lake Acuity|Acuity]]), easternmost ([[Lake Valor|Valor]]), and westernmost ([[Lake Verity|Verity]]) ends of the main continent. These are home to the members of [[lake guardians|one of Sinnoh's legendary trios]]. Near Lake Valor, as well, there is a hidden fourth lake, [[Sendoff Spring]], which houses [[Turnback Cave]]. Some other significant locations that Sinnoh offers include [[Mt. Coronet]], the highest mountain in the Sinnoh region and part of a long mountain range that divides the region in half; the [[Eterna Forest]], a large and mysterious forest; and the [[Great Marsh]], a popular habitat for Pokémon and a safari zone for many Trainers.
The Sinnoh region's towns, cities and areas, has a total population of 704 in {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}} and 755 in {{game|Platinum}}.

[[File:Mt. Coronet.png|left|thumb|200px|[[Mt. Coronet|Mt. Coronet range]], which divides the region into two parts]]
Sinnoh is home to many unique landmarks and areas of interest. These come in a range of tourist attractions such as the luxurious [[Hotel Grand Lake]] and the exciting [[Pal Park]], to many natural phenomena such as the four deep, blue lakes and the vast, dense [[Eterna Forest]]. But, the central landmark of the Sinnoh region is Mt. Coronet. Standing in the middle of Sinnoh and extending from the northern wilderness to the southern tip of the region, Mt. Coronet splits Sinnoh into two halves. It is truly best defined as a mountain range, with the highest peak shrouded in legend, perhaps being the highest mountain in the entire Pokémon world. The Spear Pillar is situated at the highest point, an ancient shrine to Pokémon which is in ruins. Several of its pillars are still standing, all pointing skyward. The legend of the [[creation trio]] is deeply connected with the mountain, as is the plot of Team Galactic. A stained glass window in the Foreign Building in Hearthome City depicts the mountain with a bright shine, representing the Spear Pillar and possibly depicting the creation of {{p|Dialga}}, {{p|Palkia}}, and {{p|Giratina}}. Its place in Sinnoh has caused variation in the species of {{p|Shellos}} and {{p|Gastrodon}}, which have different coloration depending on the side of Sinnoh they are native to.
To the very north of the region in the [[Battle Zone]], there is another mountain range, [[Stark Mountain]] which consists of an active volcano. The volcano rains ash down upon some parts of the Battle Zone. Outside the cavern, is a rugged, seemingly indestructible rock mountain that is thickly blanketed by the volcanic ash it spews. While, inside the mountain, fissures in spilled and hardened lava form enormous caverns. Another important landmark of Sinnoh is the [[Eterna Forest]], a forest home to many Bug- and Grass-type Pokémon. The Eterna Forest has a reputation for being a mysterious place, from the abandoned [[Old Chateau]] to the strange [[Moss Rock]]. The Eterna Forest is a long and complex structure of trees that make it a natural maze, of where a lot of people get lost. The Eterna Forest has apparently been the location to numerous sightings of [[Team Galactic]], for many unknown reasons.
Another major landmark is the [[Great Marsh]]. The Great Marsh is a giant wetland that is subject to frequent or continuous flood. It houses many different kinds of Pokémon, some of which are unique to this environment. [[Pastoria City]] was settled to protect the area. It has grown naturally over the years and there is now a lookout that affords views of the Great Marsh. An almost more sacred area is the trinity of lakes mysteriously situated throughout the region to form the corners of a triangle. [[Lake Verity]], [[Lake Valor]], and [[Lake Acuity]] are tied to the myth of the creation of the Pokémon world, specifically the creation of spirit. The lakes are said to be inhabited by the three legendary pixies {{p|Uxie}}, {{p|Mesprit}}, and {{p|Azelf}}. They are meant to represent knowledge, emotion, and willpower, respectively.
[[File:Sinnoh Underground Map.png|thumb|right|[[The Underground]]; a series of tunnels dug out below Sinnoh|300px]]
The [[The Underground|Underground]] is a famous attraction to the Sinnoh region, because of the fact that it is not located above the surface of the region, but below in a series of tunnels dug out by people. There are six independent sections of the labyrinth, each accessible from different places in Sinnoh. In terms of vendors and mining treasures, the areas are equivalent. One of the main attractions of the Underground is the mining game in which rare items can be found.
The Sinnoh region is the only area where an extreme natural phenomena has occurred; the gateway to another universe has opened due to the actions of {{p|Giratina}}. At first, Giratina uses [[Turnback Cave]], a cave located in the depths of the mysterious and secret fourth lake of Sinnoh, [[Sendoff Spring]] as a portal to the [[Distortion World]]. It is said that Turnback Cave was a weak point between dimensions, and the ability to travel across to the Distortion World would be possible. This mysterious place disobeys the normal laws of physics: time does not flow and spatial relations are irregular, allowing the player to walk and surf on walls in any direction. Trees and rocks can simply grow out of the ground, and then disappear. The only Pokémon known to inhabit the Distortion World is Giratina.

[[File:Sinnoh Anime.png|thumb|right|290px|Oblique view of the Sinnoh region from above.]]
Sinnoh features a broad range of new and classic environments for the player to explore including, for the first time in a Pokémon RPG, snowy routes. Its terrain is varied: some parts of the region are dry and mountainous; others are wet and swampy. The region is rich in water.
Due to its large size, the main region of Sinnoh can be broken into two sub-regions divided by [[Mt. Coronet]], roughly comparable to how the continent that [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]] make up is essentially a contiguous region. Due to this, {{p|Shellos}} and {{p|Gastrodon}} have developed an instance of regional {{wp|speciation}}, with members of the species found on the eastern side being blue-colored and members on the western side being pink-colored.
The western half of Sinnoh features a variety of landscapes. Its coasts are notably more rocky than the eastern half, however, the land is far more fertile, and the towns, for the most part, are rural. A windswept canyon, carved out by a river that flows from Mt. Coronet, is home to the [[Valley Windworks]], which provides clean, wind-driven electricity to the nearby towns. This is not to say, however, that there is no importance to west Sinnoh, as [[Oreburgh City]], [[Eterna City]], and [[Canalave City]] are the locations of [[Gym|Pokémon Gyms]], and [[Jubilife City]], at the heart of the area, is the most technologically advanced city in the region.
Sinnoh's eastern half is home to a vast many more things, including [[Pokémon Super Contest]]s in [[Hearthome City]], a [[Veilstone Department Store|Department Store]] in [[Veilstone City]], the [[Great Marsh]] of [[Pastoria City]], and the awe-inspiring [[Vista Lighthouse]] of [[Sunyshore City]]. In each of these cities, as well, there is a Pokémon Gym, which is very important for League-bound {{pkmn|Trainer}}s.
[[File:Torn World.png|thumb|left|250px|Mt. Coronet's peak, with the entrance to the [[Distortion World]] above it, from the northwest.]]
Unlike the halves of Sinnoh divided longitudinally by Mt. Coronet, the northern area is sparsely populated, with [[Snowpoint City]] as the only major area. This is likely due to the cold climate and snowy terrain in the area. Despite this relative isolation, however, Snowpoint has a Pokémon Gym, making it another important stop for Trainers who wish to compete in the Pokémon League.
A third sub-region is the [[Battle Zone]], which is on a large island to the northeast of the mainland. Much like how people from the [[Sevii Islands]] seem to consider their home to be a separate region from [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]], people from the Battle Zone often refer to Sinnoh as a separate region. Several islands, including [[Newmoon Island]], [[Fullmoon Island]], and [[Iron Island]], lie off the northwestern coast of Sinnoh as well, though these are far eclipsed in both size and importance by the mainland.
Separated from both the Battle Zone and the mainland of Sinnoh by several straits is the island on which the {{si|Pokémon League}} of Sinnoh is located, the only access to which is by way of {{rt|223|Sinnoh}}. It is here where Sinnoh's {{si|Victory Road}} is located, which, unlike previous incarnations has not two, but three entrances: one of these, of course, is the southern entrance that Trainers from the mainland must navigate from, a second is the one that leads to the area in which the [[Elite Four]] can be challenged, and the third leads from a {{m|Defog|foggy}} area of Victory Road to {{rt|224|Sinnoh}}, which is said to be a miniature version of Sinnoh. North from Route 224, the [[Seabreak Path]] leads to {{p|Shaymin}}'s domain, the [[Flower Paradise]].
The climate of Sinnoh varies widely, and most of the region is made of mountainous or hilly areas. Unlike [[Hoenn]], which is located in the south where the climate is warmer, Sinnoh is located on the northern boundaries of the world where the temperature is cooler. It is so cold in the northern part of the region that snow falls constantly. The harsh snow that blows down from the mountain's peaks not only makes the area very cold, but makes the {{rt|217|Sinnoh|routes in the area}} perilous to travel on. Cities such as [[Snowpoint City]] are completely covered in snow, and Pokémon who live nearby have had to adapt to the climate. Recently, the southern side of the region has also become cooler; climate change is taking a toll. Areas such as [[Twinleaf Town]] and {{rt|201|Sinnoh}} now have small amounts of snow on the ground.
However, not all of the northern areas of Sinnoh are covered in snow. Due to the dry environments and mountainous areas such as [[Stark Mountain]], the small island known as the [[Battle Zone]] is subject to warmer climates. A constant sandstorm rages on {{rt|228|Sinnoh}} due to the flow of wind down though the mountains. Some of the southern areas of the Battle Zone are very tropical and contain dense jungles.
[[File:Sinnoh from the sky.png|thumb|right|250px|A part of the Sinnoh region where the city meets the sea]]
The mainland features full land geography, with only five [[water route]]s. Despite this lack of water routes, in contrast to the [[Hoenn]] region, Sinnoh is known to be rich in water. Rivers that originate from the highlands and mountains in the center of the landmass runs through the region passing many cities, towns, and routes and into the ocean. There are many lakes throughout the region such as [[Lake Acuity]], [[Lake Valor]], and [[Lake Verity]]. All these factors create a tropical climate throughout the mainland. Many large cities settle on or close to the seaside; some of them have large ports.
Further inland, there are many different climates. Due to the mountain zones, different inland areas are subject to rain. This rain creates wetlands. Such areas may also be covered partially or completely by shallow pools of water. The soil in the wetland area is permanently saturated with moisture, which creates swamps, marshes, and bogs. In fact, [[Pastoria City]] was founded on marshy soils that attracted wild Pokémon. Unlike other regions, Sinnoh is sometimes troubled by fog. {{rt|210|Sinnoh}} is often covered in a thick cloud that makes obstacles and Trainers difficult to see; fortunately for travelers, {{m|Defog|this can be easily cleared}}.
===Energy sources===
The Sinnoh region is famed for its energy production and conservation via natural resources. Different areas of Sinnoh use different sources of energy for the use of power generation, heating, and transport fuels. The [[Oreburgh Mine]] is one of the main features in Oreburgh City, as well as the city's leading energy source. Its energy is exported to many parts of the region, including its neighbor, [[Jubilife City]], whose large population consumes a lot of energy. The mine is the livelihood of the town. Vents in the town allow steam to escape and fresh air to enter the mine, likely also clearing the mine of any poison gas (which is historically the bane of coal miners). The mine is operated with the utmost care to avoid causing damage to the natural habitats of wild Pokémon. The system of taking coal out of the mine is automated.
Another local energy source is the [[Valley Windworks]]. The Valley Windworks is a large wind farm situated in a windy valley close to Mt. Coronet, so as to generate as much electricity as possible. It is located just off {{rt|205|Sinnoh}}, a short walk east from Floaroma Town. In the area, there are eight tall wind turbines which generate energy that is in turn processed by the power plant in the center of the area. Many towns benefit from the natural renewable energy including [[Floaroma Town]], and [[Eterna City]].
The third and final renewable energy source Sinnoh has to offer is [[Sunyshore City]]'s solar panels, which are ingeniously designed for the use of power and transportation. Because the city is on the coast and gets hit by a lot of sunlight, the solar panels were built to collect energy for little cost, no pollution, and convenience to the city's citizens. It was also built due to the lack of space. However, there is a disadvantage: the solar panel system is often broken, and the city will experience massive blackouts at times. Citizens of and visitors to the city are able to walk around the city on top of the solar panels.
==Sinnoh League==
{{main|Sinnoh League}}
[[File:Sinnoh Elite Four.png‎|thumb|right|250px|The current members of Elite Four]]
The regional Pokémon League in the Sinnoh region is known as the Sinnoh League. The Sinnoh League is composed of eight [[Gym Leaders]] and four [[Elite Four]] members, along with the {{pkmn|Champion}}. Pokémon Trainers who earn eight [[Badge]]s by defeating the Gym Leaders of the Sinnoh League qualify to challenge the Elite Four located in the {{si|Pokémon League}} building. Gym Leaders are located in different cities and towns, each with their own specialty type. It is the Gym Leader's job to be the protector of their respective town or city, as they should be the strongest Trainer residing there. Once all Gym Leaders have been defeated, Trainers may face the Elite Four and its Champion. To defeat the Elite Four, all five Trainers must be defeated in succession.

* If one were to draw lines to connect the three lakes of Sinnoh, they form a big triangle with [[Mt. Coronet]] at the center. This is the same formation that {{p|Uxie}}, {{p|Mesprit}}, and {{p|Azelf}} make on the top of the [[Spear Pillar]] with {{p|Dialga}} or {{p|Palkia}} in the middle, as well as the same formation put in areas relating to the [[Sinnoh myths]].
* Sinnoh is the only region of the main series games that has more than five letters in its name, having six.
* Sinnoh is also the only area traveled through where all the Gym Leaders that have been featured have appeared in an episode before Ash battled them.
* If a Pokémon hatches in an area exclusive to Platinum, then subsequently traded to Diamond and Pearl, its met location will display as "[[Faraway place]]", despite the fact that these areas (with the exception of the Distortion World and the Battle Frontier) are all within the Sinnoh region.
* Interestingly, Sinnoh has an [[List of locations by index number (Generation IV)|index number location]] programmed into [[Generation IV]] for it, despite the fact that all Sinnoh locations are programmed into the games already. This index location is at #2006, while coincidentally, was the Japanese release of Sinnoh's first games, {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}. This does not happen for the other three regions programmed in (i.e. Kanto is 2003, not 1996, Johto is 2004, not 1999, and Hoenn is 2005, not 2002). This data is unused during normal gameplay (i.e. without hacking); Pokémon from Sinnoh traded to a game taking place in Johto display their normal "met at" area, much like Pokémon from [[Kanto]] do when traded to Emerald.
* Sinnoh has the most places to {{m|fly}} out of all regions so far, having eighteen.
* Sinnoh has been shown to have more {{Shiny}} Pokémon inhabiting it than any other region featured in the [[List of alternately colored Pokémon in the anime#Shiny Pokémon|anime]] with a total of seven; {{p|Dustox}}, {{p|Metagross}}, {{p|Ditto}}, [[Legendary beasts (M13)|Raikou, Entei, Suicune]], and {{p|Ariados}}.
