The incredible size and diversity of the Sinnoh region.
Half that region was dominated by a mountain range. Hoenn was more varied.
However, Gen 4 gave us: 1. The Physical/Special Split 2. The Pokeathlon 3. Seals 4. The Physical/Special Split
No Hoenn wasn't. Half the Hoenn region was dominated by the water. It was entirely a tropical region. There was a small anomalous cave for Ice types and that was due to submersion, and some oddity rather than a true artic aspect. Sinnoh goes from a tropical section, where you can transfer Pokemon, to a rather large snowy north. If you count the Battle Frontier, it even had its own volcanic region. Mt. Coronet spits the region, but hardly takes up truely half of it. Sunnyshore could be considered tropical/subtropical, you had dissiduous forest from Floaroma Town to Eterna City. It was quite varied.
To compare the two: Hoenn had islands, Sinnoh had islands Hoenn had a volcano, Sinnoh had a volcano(Battle Frontier only though) Hoenn had shoal cave, Sinnoh had Snowpoint City, upper mt. Coronet, Snowpoint Temple Hoenn was mostly tropical, Sinnoh had Sunnyshore City, and the Pal Park for tropical Hoenn had water routes, Sinnoh had water routes. Hoenn had dive areas, Sinnoh had the Underground Hoenn had a desert, Sinnoh had a desert (Battle Frontier) Hoenn had large ruins, Sinnoh had large ruins Hoenn had ???, Sinnoh had lakes. Hoenn had Mt. Pyre, Sinnoh had the Lost Tower Hoenn had rivers, Sinnoh had rivers
