I can see why you would think that, but honestly, I'm just a new member.
Ask the TC, he'll tell you I'm not him ;)

Even though several regions are loosely based off of Japan, Pokearth =/= our Earth. It's possible that there's a lot more meshing of cultures in their world, and each country is less distinct.

This is the most interesting topic I have read on this board ever...curse you fools for trying to extinguish his creativity for reasons I can only assume are related to jealousy...

Right on TC, I like it...

This is an alternate world. Japan and the US do not exist.

Or maybe it has to do with Professor Oak inventing the Pokedex and being from Kanto. Start with what you know, you know?

Have a look at this article http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_world_in_relation_to_the_real_world

In particular, these two entries;
-Lt. Surge is known as "The Lightning American!"
-A Guitarist that can be battled in the Battle Frontier mentions that his guitar is actually a Japanese instrument.

Both mention America and Japan, so both countries exsist in the game world. We don't know for sure if Gens 1 - 4 are set in Japan, and gen 5 in the US, but with all the facts we do have I say it's a pretty good guess.

^ This, there is about as much creativity and imagination on the Gfaqs board as there is in a THQ conference. Not many will give you props for this.

I think it is rather believable and your points are coherent and make sense, no one else can debunk any of them. I honestly wouldn't think twice about the Japanese thinking this a way to "get back" at the US.
