Gen VI Pokemon ranger/Side game. Since it's non of the 5 main region it must be a side game, couldn't be Pokemon Z. The souvenir itself looks like a skull of a humanoid pokemon (at least the head) possible to be bipedal. Gen IV pull this off with Manaphy already why couldn't they do it again?
This actually makes a lot of sense.
I'm starting to think that it's just a special item that will unlock a goodie in something like a new Pokemon Ranger. Good theory. --- inb4 Dunsparce megavolves into Arceus "Mycaruba."
I seriously don't think there's a whole hidden region in XY... Nor do I believe there will be in Pokémon Z.
What I do believe is, I don't think that the backpacker is talking to the character at all. I think he's breaking the fourth wall, talking to you, the player, us, and that 'we' will soon see a new region. Probably Gen VII, I guess this is the new Lock Capsule, and that it will only have an effect when transferred to Gen VII. Or maybe it doesn't do anything ever, but just serves as a small teaser for the next set of games. --- 3DS Friend Code: 3179-6345-2059 Playing Pokemon Y!
Is there any new information? It seems he says something slightly different each day, maybe we could gather the quotes for each day.
Today (Day 2?) he said:
"The Kalos region is nice and all, but you should really check out my region! There's this facility that you wouldn't believe...Ah, never mind. You'll see it in due time."
Yesterday I think he said something similar about a city. I imagine these things are hints to the region being described, just need to fit them together.
What region has a city and facility that really noteworthy? No city I remember is bigger/more impressive than Luminoise, so it seems like it isn't a known region.
All known regions so far are based on real places, so if this is a new regions we can assume that will be true again. In the real world, are there any cities that could fit this? The only place I can think of is maybe Rome.
Also, what facility could be unbelievable? The only thing I can think of is the safari zone from HG/SS or the Battle Frontier Both possibly hinting at Johto, but then Goldenrod city doesn't fit with the first part. It isn't anything that noteworthy.
Going with Rome, it is famous for the Colosseum. This is the sort of landmark that could work well with being a pokemon facility...
Also, the Strange Souvenir kind of looks like a Roman statue.
