I'm wondering if stonehenge-ish area is the starting village? There are two houses there (I know there would be more in the actual game, but it seems to signify that it's small), and there's a slightly larger village near it.

I also don't see many other candidates for a typical starting village, unless they do a bigger one again.


Could be. The only other places I could see are the northern coast with the lighthouse or the city near the purple stone, but that would be weird starting in the middle lol

(Map from serebii.net)

I counted fourteen places where I think cities/towns would probably be

It looks like we have a big wind farm in the north part of the region, which I suspected upon the first trailer.

A good amount of rivers is nice.

I'd think that part in the northeast covered by clouds may be the E4 or an Unknown Dungeon like place.

We have quite a few bridges. I doubt many, if any will be the grandiose bridges we got in Unova.

It looks like there is a clock treehouse in the northern most town

I see entry slots in 4 of the mountains

There's a stonehenge like monument on the western part of Kalos.

There's an island in the northwest, surrounded by rocks. You probably would ride a boat there.

A mansion extends out into the river in the midwest part of the region.

There's definitely a lot I didn't mention. Overall, this looks like a pretty fun region on first glance.


Well, I just made a topic about this like 3 minutes after yours.


Yea this gen definitely seems like it will be a dungeon crawler with all the caves lol

I see the clock treehouse thing now. Wonder what's up with that.

Ok
lots of rivers nice. No giant ass open seas, so surfing seems it will be reasonable in this region.
and tbh i'm not completely hyped over this map. Seems kinda barren and flat, not too many interesting landmarks imo. Maybe when we see the actual in-game map..

I don't know. Most of these cities/towns seem to have something about them that stand out, like a landmark. Which is pretty cool, if you ask me.

Moon Island with some huge building in the west. Or maybe that whole place is one building.
A lighthouse in the northwest
Stonehenge in the west
Large water fountain building in the southwest
Town with some round thing on the roof in the southwest
Large building in the midwest
Fort town in the center
Eiffel Tower in the metropolis
Clock Treehouse in the north
Windmill in the east
The aforementioned giant pink stone
The castle plateau
A giant street lamp in the snow village

It looks like there is a canyon between windmill town and giant pink stone town

Some random pink woods between metropolis and Fort Town

Pawprint Lakes below Clock Treehouse Town

There's no particular appearance that a Battle Frontier would have to have. That said, I'm doubtful GF would bother with battling beyond the badge quest. Tower, maybe. Hopefully.

EDIT: That ain't Stonehenge, those are menhirs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menhir#In_France
Brittany's full of them.

It looks like Moon Island or the city to the south with the dish may potentially be one.

There's a random tree fort thing in the southeast below the woods of the snow village.

There's also some crumbled tower or monument between Windmill Town and Clock Treehouse Town in the north.

Guessing it's the huge tower on an island in the far-west bay.

Ruby and Sapphire? No Battle Frontier, but Battle Tower
Diamond and Pearl? No Battle Frontier, but Battle Tower

So you think X and Y will have a Battle Frontier?
