I was looking at Kalos and it hit me.

It ruins the scaling for the pokemon world to just be another Earth. It treats France like it's the size of New York city or about an 8th of Japan. There's no amount of line smidging or relative spacing that can fix that, even if Kalos is twice as big as the next biggest region.

"I was looking at Kalos and it hit me."

That's what you get for staring.

Did anyone actually expect the Pokemon world to be exactly like Earth, anyway?

Yes. All the Gogeta fans in the world did.

What does liking Gogeta have to do with Pokémon? I love DBZ, Gogeta included, and I'm smart enough to know the Pokémon universe's Earth is not exactly analogous to ours.

I assumed he was just referencing a known poster around here named GogetaFan1995 or something...

Back in Red/Blue, yeah.

It's actually much bigger in the anime. Unless you want a Pokemon game that functions like Daggerfall (which is about the size of the UK in game area), then of course the regions are going to appear small.

The problem with your logic is that Kalos isn't supposed to be France, it's supposed to be based off of France. And the Pokemon world isn't necessarily Earth.
