Kalos is greek for "it is good", "beautiful".

I guess we are getting a region with influences of the entire Europe, like how Unova had more countries than just USA.

Unova had other countries?
On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound is coming to the US.

The region is based on France, not a completely direct 100% faithful representation of France.

Unova is based on New York, but takes from the whole of USA.

Like Hollywood which is located on the West Coast.

Kalos is based on France, but will probably take from most of Europe.

The majority of European languages are of Latin and Greek origin. It's not really significant.

I am pretty sure I mentioned in the OP that Kalos probably gonna be based on the entire Europe, or in other words, a mix of different influences from many countries. What implies, by itself, that it can't be just France >_>

Come on, you are just trying to be a smartass here.

I think it'll be nice. :o I like how they're trying to make the different regions unique.
