Deleter white: [DELETER MANGA SHOP]White Ink, DELETER WHITE 2

Deleter: have you ever wondered?

Savvy comics artists have been using Deleter brand graphic white to correct their art for years. Despite the name, it’s a Japanese brand, very high density, easy to use, good coverage. Finding a good graphic white is tough: when you find a good one, you really feel some loyalty. Deleter has earned ours.

You can get Deleter online a few places, and in New York at New York Central Art Supply (our fave all-around cartooning store) as well as DaVinci Artist Supply on 23rd at Lexington, courtesy of the efforts of a talented former student who now works there, David Fernandez (I’m sure he won’t be there for long).

The one problem with Deleter, which comes in both black and white? There are many numbered types, and all the information on them is in Japanese, so we poor illiterate-in-Japanese Americans have no idea what we’re really getting, or why we’re paying $8 instead of $5!

Well, no more. Thanks to our pal, painter and musician Hiroshi Kimura, here’s a translation of the descriptions on all the bottles. An informed consumer is the best customer!

(Note that Hiroshi translated prices on a Japanese site: import prices may be much higher.)

Deleter Black (FYI: the black is nice, but not radically better than other Western brands)

  1. Water based. Good with line or paint. 280 Japanese Yen ($3.4)
  2. Water based. Good for detailed pen drawings. If you use an eraser over the ink, the lines stays strongly. (it sounds a bit stronger than water based #1 –Hiroshi). 380Yen ($4.4)
  3. Waterproof. Perfect for painting a black area, it will be very flat, even. 380Yen ($4.4)
  4. Waterproof. This is very dense black. This black doesn’t fade after many years. 540Yen ($6)/most expensive)
  5. This is Japanese Sumi ink for comic drawing. Nicely shiny black. 220Yen ($2.8–cheap! Poor Garo artists might use this one! –H)
  6. Higher grade sumi ink for comics. Fast drying. Perfect for Kent paper. (“Kent” is thick, shiny surface paper, very popular for Japanese Manga artists since the 1960’s –H) 380Yen ($4. 4)

Deleter White (we use #2! About $6 retail in the USA, and worth it.)

  1. All-purpose, not necessary to add water, you can use it right away. Good for detailed work. 450Yen ($5)
  2. This white will be waterproof when dry. Less transparent white, and thicker. 280Yen ($3.4)

A Move Deleter (Japanese: わすれオヤジ Forgetting Man) is a person who, for no charge, will make a Pokémon forget a move it knows. They are the counterparts to the Move Reminder, often found in the same location.

In Galar, there is no traditional Move Deleter; instead, Jack offers to make Pokémon forget moves (among other services).

Uses

A Move Deleter’s only restrictions are that they cannot make a Pokémon forget the last move it knows and, in Pokémon Emerald, they cannot make a Pokémon forget Surf if that Pokémon is the only one in the player’s party or PC that knows the move.

Those restrictions aside, the Move Deleter is the only way for a Pokémon to forget HM moves such as Cut or Fly besides exploiting the Day Care. This is particularly useful for transferring Pokémon from Generations III or IV to the following generation via Pal Park or Poké Transfer, since Pokémon cannot know any HM moves when they are transferred. For most moves, Move Deleters are the only way to let Pokémon forget the move without learning a new one.

The Move Deleter’s service was likewise useful in the Generation II games to delete moves exclusive to the second generation so that Pokémon could be traded to Generation I games via the Time Capsule.

In Pokémon XD, the Move Deleter is also responsible for helping Michael with an issue involving the Move Reminder, who is also located at Mt. Battle with the latter: if any of his Pokémon already have four move slots occupied, then the Move Reminder cannot reteach the Pokémon a forgotten move unless the Move Deleter helps to erase a move. Unlike the Move Reminder, the Deleter’s service is free of charge.

Trivia

Kanto カントー地方
Kanto region

The Kanto region (Japanese: カントー地方 Kanto-chihō) is a region of the Pokémon world. It forms a joint landmass with the contiguous region of Johto, and (as revealed by the radio show Sinnoh Sound) are located south of the Sinnoh region. It was the first region to be introduced. It is the setting of the Generation I games, FireRed and LeafGreen, and Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!; it is also accessible in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver after the quest in Johto is completed.

All cities in Kanto are named after colors (Viridian City, Lavender Town, Indigo Plateau, etc.), with the exception of Pallet Town, which is also a reference to color. Professor Oak is the resident Pokémon Professor and gives Pokémon Trainers a choice between Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle as their starter Pokémon. In Yellow, the only choice is a Pikachu that he recently caught, although he did have an Eevee. In Let’s Go, Pikachu!, the player chooses Pikachu. In Let’s Go, Eevee!, the player chooses Eevee. In the games, the player begins their journey in Pallet Town and ends it at Indigo Plateau.

It is based on and named after the real Kantō region (関東, meaning “east of the barrier”) in Japan. Unlike almost every other region, which are specific to their own generations, Kanto has been explorable in the first four generations of Pokémon games, as well as the seventh generation. However, it is not the primary region in the Generation II and IV games it appears in, in which players explore the neighboring Johto region before exploring Kanto.

The artwork of Kanto in Generation I and Generation II depict Kanto as grassland, with very few trees. In Generation III, Generation IV, and Generation VII, Kanto is seen with more trees, making it less like grassland.

Etymology and design concept

Connection to Japan

Main article: Pokémon world in relation to the real world

Regardless of their proximity, the people of Johto and those of Kanto are set apart by many cultural differences. Kanto is based on the real Kantō region in Japan. Compared to the traditional Kansai region (where Johto is based), Kanto is modern and technological, which is reflected in the look of the cities and the buildings like the Pokémon Lab of Cinnabar Island and the Power Plant. This fact is also reflected in Kanto being the only Pokémon region without any legends, myths, or traditions related to Pokémon, and being the centerpoint for innovation, with the Poké Ball’s ultimate upgrade, the Master Ball, being recently invented by Silph Co. The soil of the Kantō region is volcanic, referencing the in-game Kanto region’s inability to maintain a Berry crop in Generation II, Generation III, and Generation IV. People from Kanto are considered to be sophisticated, reserved and formal. Kansai and Kantō, however different, are the two most populous areas of Honshū, the largest island in Japan, and, much like Johto and Kanto, represent a harmony of contrasting cultures living together. The cultural divide is most noticeable in the games, as the player talks to and learns about the denizens of both regions.

Tokyo, which the commercial Celadon City and the financial Saffron City are based on, is the most important commercial and economic center of Japan. Yokohama, which Vermilion City is based on, is the main and largest seaport of Japan.

History

The Kanto region is home to a lot of Pokémon and has a rich history of creating Pokémon with technology.

Researchers of Kanto have been great at their job. A researcher working for the evil organization Team Rocket cloned Mew through its genes and created the Genetic Pokémon Mewtwo. Porygon, the Virtual Pokémon, was also created by humans in Kanto.

In contemporary history, Red/Leaf is given a Pokémon by Professor Oak for personal safety. Professor Oak also gives his grandson, Blue, a Pokémon and asks Blue and Red/Leaf to help him fill the Pokédex, a complete encyclopedia on Pokémon. Thus, the journey of Red/Leaf begins. Red/Leaf travels across the Kanto region and collects all eight Gym Badges. During their journey, Red/Leaf comes across Team Rocket, an evil organization behind wrongdoings about Pokémon. Red/Leaf stops Team Rocket and defeats Giovanni, their boss as well as the Gym Leader of Viridian Gym, who then disbands Team Rocket. In the meantime, Blue, who has also collected all of the Kanto Gym Badges, defeats the Elite Four at the Indigo League and becomes the champion of the Kanto region. Finally, Red/Leaf makes it up to him and defeats him to gain the title of the Indigo League Champion.

Three years later, Ethan/Kris/Lyra, a Trainer from Johto, comes to Kanto and collects all eight Kanto Gym Badges. Ethan/Kris/Lyra is the current Indigo League Champion and has also met and defeated Red.

Cities, routes, and other locations

The Kanto region features ten towns and cities. There is a wide variety of towns and cities throughout the region; from the large, urban Saffron City to the quiet, quaint town of Pallet. Kanto features a Pokémon League, like most other regions in the Pokémon world. However, since Kanto shares its borders with Johto, it also shares the same Pokémon League. Kanto and Johto are the only known regions that can be crossed with relative ease. Even though Kanto and Johto are culturally and socially different, the two regions are actually very similar in terms of geography.

The Kanto region includes 28 different routes, which act as roads to cities and towns or points of interest. The Johto region follows Kanto’s route number which ends at Route 28 in the Kanto region and begins with Johto’s Route 29. Unlike other regions, Kanto does not have routes featuring any sort of weather conditions, such as Hoenn’s Route 119 which rains and thunders constantly and Sinnoh’s Route 217 in which hail regularly falls. The Kanto region seems to have the most temperate climate of the eight main regions.

The connecting landmass between Kanto and Johto does not appear to be a fine line, but more or less a blurry one. Route 28 is technically owned by Kanto; however, it bridges the border between the two regions, making it the only route in history that enters two regions at one time. This is similar to Routes 26 and 27, that are strictly Kanto locations; however, they are able to be transported to via HM02 (Fly) from Johto in Generation IV.

According to Professor Oak, a stone tablet was discovered in Kanto, like the one that is able to summon Shaymin on Route 224 in Sinnoh. This is mentioned during the event in which players catch Shaymin in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, but the Kanto stone tablet is not seen in any game.

Demographics

Including all the cities and towns in the Kanto region, the total population in Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed and LeafGreen is 391, while in Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold and SoulSilver, the population is 364.

Areas of interest

Routes

Routes in Kanto began the numbering process, going from 1 to 25 in Generations I, III, and VII, but adding three routes to connect to Johto (26, 27, and 28) in Generations II and IV.

Geography

The Kanto region has a very temperate climate and not many notable landscape features, though this may be due to the region’s origins in the Generation I games.

The majority of the Kanto region are forests and plains. Many of the major Kanto cities are in the center of the region, with close access to virtually every environment such as the sea, mountains, forests, etc. Kanto is mostly dominated by land, but has a large bay in the middle which opens to a sea in the southwest. Kanto has a contrast between urban cities and rural towns. Kanto has several mountain ranges, which are mostly in northern and western Kanto. Indigo Plateau and Victory Road mountain range divides Kanto from the neighboring Johto region.

Differences between generations

Between Generation I and Generation III, Kanto is very much the same with some alterations in respect to the improved graphics and gameplay in the remakes. Additionally in FireRed and LeafGreen, a chain of islands known as the Sevii Islands, located far south of mainland Kanto, are unlocked throughout the player’s quest, with the first three accessible once Blaine is defeated on Cinnabar Island. Becoming the Pokémon Champion and getting the National Pokédex unlocks the other islands which make up this archipelago.

In the Generation II games as well as HeartGold and SoulSilver, Trainers may travel from Johto to Kanto and notice that changes have occurred as a result of three years having passed since the time of the Generation I games and FireRed and LeafGreen:

  • The Safari Zone has closed as a result of the warden taking a trip. In Generation II, it is simply inaccessible during normal gameplay while it has been relocated to Johto in Generation IV, with the original area now housing a Pal Park.
  • Cerulean Cave, also known as “Unknown Dungeon” has collapsed in Generation II, but in Generation IV, however, it has re-excavated.
  • Cinnabar Island has been destroyed by an eruption of the volcano, and its Gym has been relocated to the Seafoam Islands.
  • In Generation II only, Viridian Forest became drastically smaller and was a part of Route 2.
  • Mt. Moon has greatly decreased in size due to rock slides.
  • The Power Plant has become functional.
  • The Pokémon Tower has become a radio tower. The Pokémon graves it housed have been moved to the House of Memories.
  • Blue has taken over Viridian Gym since Giovanni’s retreat for training and remodeled the Gym to suit his tastes.
  • Janine has taken over Fuchsia Gym since her father Koga has been promoted to the Elite Four.
  • In Generation II only, the Pewter Museum of Science is closed for renovations.
  • The southern portion of Route 23 was removed in Generation II, and the stone maze that was in the northern portion is gone, leaving a simple, straight path. In Generation IV, though this same northern portion exists, it is labeled as a part of Indigo Plateau, meaning that Route 23 no longer exists.
  • The Badge checks have been combined into the Pokémon League Reception Gate, instead of being scattered along Route 23.

Trivia

“A map of the Kanto region!
I hope she gives it to me…”

  • Until the release of Pokémon Gold and Silver, Kanto’s name was seen only once in the Japanese Generation I games: upon viewing the Town Map at Blue’s house. It was never mentioned in the Generation I games outside of Japan, and thus, many fans assumed the region was called “Indigo”, based on the Indigo Plateau’s name. By the time the Generation III remakes, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, were released, Kanto’s name was firmly established and appeared regularly in-game.
  • Kanto is the only core series region which has been featured in two separate anime series, once at the start of Ash’s journey in the original series, and once after Ash returned from Hoenn in Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire.
  • Kanto has certain traits that generally separates it from other regions:
    • It is the only region in the Pokémon world that shares its name with the real-world region it was based on.
    • It is also the only region where the Pokémon League is located to the west of every Gym.
    • Kanto and Johto are the only regions that are connected to each other by land.
    • Kanto is the only region without a city with a population of at least 100.
  • In Generation I, Kanto was slightly redesigned twice after its initial appearance: signposts, doors, and other minor details, along with certain locations, such as Cerulean Cave, were changed between Pocket Monsters Red and Green and Pocket Monsters Blue, and then again between Pocket Monsters Blue and Pocket Monsters Pikachu. The international Pokémon Red and Blue reused the tilesets and other graphics from Pocket Monsters Blue, while international Pokémon Yellow featured the same design as its original Japanese release.
  • Kanto has appeared in the most games and generations to date, having appeared in fourteen games (fifteen in Japan) over the course of five generations.
  • Kanto is briefly mentioned in Detective Pikachu during the narration that Dr. Ann Laurent did during the creation of Mewtwo.
  • The adjectival form of Kanto is “Kantonian”, as seen in multiple sources, such as the Kantonian Gym, and dialogue in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Johto ジョウト地方
Johto region

The Johto region (Japanese: ジョウト地方 Johto-chihō) is a region of the Pokémon world. It is located west of Kanto, and as revealed by the radio show Sinnoh Sound, is located south of Sinnoh. It is the setting of Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver. Johto and Kanto are part of a large landmass, with everything west of Indigo Plateau falling in the Johto region. It was the second core series region to be introduced.

First explored in Pokémon Gold and Silver, it is home to an additional 100 Pokémon that were not present in the previous games. Players begin their journey in New Bark Town, where Professor Elm offers either Chikorita, Cyndaquil, or Totodile to beginning Pokémon Trainers. The English-version names of most of the cities in Johto are also the names of plants or things related to plants.

Johto returns in Generation IV’s HeartGold and SoulSilver, with all areas from its Generation II iteration returning, and several new areas being accessible, such as the Safari Zone, with the new Routes 47 and 48 leading to it.

Etymology and design concept

Main article: Pokémon world in relation to the real world#Johto

Junichi Masuda has stated in his director’s column that the kanji that inspired the name mean “castle palace” (城都) or “lattice-shaped palace” (条都)[1][2]; this meaning is connected to the city of Nara, which was the basis for Violet City. Johto has a very traditional Japanese theme, which is portrayed in some of its settlements, including Ecruteak City and Violet City.

Regardless of their proximity, the people of Johto and those of Kanto are set apart by many cultural differences. Johto is based on the real Kansai region in Japan. This trait is most noticeable in its geography; however, the Kansai influence also defines the culture in Johto. Kansai residents are known for their attitudes against typical Japanese standards, mostly due to the historical rivalry between the region, once the major seat of political power, and the real Kantō region where Tokyo, the current capital, is located. The soil of the Kansai region is rich, unlike the volcanic Kantō region, and this is perhaps referenced by the in-game Kanto region’s inability to maintain a Berry crop in Generation III. People from Kansai are considered to be more relaxed. Kansai and Kantō, however different, are the two most populous areas of Honshū, the largest island in Japan, and, much like Johto and Kanto, represent a harmony of contrasting cultures living together. The cultural divide is most noticeable in the games, as the player talks to and learns about the denizens of both regions.

Certain cultural aspects of the Johto region are deep-seated in Japanese history, as well. Kyoto, which is probably the basis for Ecruteak City, is considered the cultural center of Japan. Kyoto and its many historical temples, shrines, palaces, gardens and architecture have been preserved. This connection to history is reflected in many areas of Johto. However, Goldenrod City (like Osaka) is typically modern.

History

1,500 years before modern times, the place now known as the Ruins of Alph was built in Johto, and the earliest known system for writing—the modern Latin alphabet—was developed. Although no one knows exactly who built the Ruins of Alph, research indicates that the people in question were an ancient civilization that wished to co-exist with the enigmatic Unown that bear great similarity to the alphabet letters. Not only did that tribe impart messages on the ruins’ walls describing the Unown, but they also erected a Pokémon statue for an unknown reason.

At some point later, outsiders began to gather near the ruins. As the Unown were timid creatures, they rejected contact with anyone but the clan that protected them. To ensure the Unown’s well being, the Ruins of Alph’s inhabitants decided to leave the region, but not without devising complicated puzzles so that one day the Unown could be summoned again. As for the clan, their quest led them to a mountain far to the north, where they met another group of people who had hailed from the Spear Pillar. Together, the two groups built a temple in honor of Arceus, which incorporated elements from both the Ruins of Alph and the Spear Pillar; this collaboration probably has to do with the underlying relationship between Arceus and the Unown. The temple, too, has since been left in ruins and its lowest floor is now known as the Sinjoh Ruins; however, the ritual of honoring Legendary Pokémon through dance circulated back to Johto, specifically to Ecruteak City.

Approximately 700 years before modern times, the people of Ecruteak built two nine-tier towers with the hopes of fostering friendship and hope between Pokémon and humans. They were the Brass Tower in the west, which was said to awaken Pokémon, and the Bell Tower in the east, where Pokémon were said to rest. Both towers became the roost of powerful flying Pokémon: Lugia and Ho-Oh, respectively. It is unknown what made the residents revere Lugia and Ho-Oh, but a separate tale indicates that Lugia had previously had an encounter with the people of Johto when it stopped a war on the Whirl Islands, which were a single island at that time.

The towers stood strong for about 550 years, when a lightning bolt struck the Brass Tower. It was engulfed in flames that raged for three days. A sudden downpour finally put out the blaze, but it had already burnt to the ground. Three nameless Pokémon perished in the fire, but Ho-Oh descended from the sky and resurrected them. The revived Pokémon were made to embody three powers: the lightning that struck the tower, the fire that burned the tower, and the rain that put out the fire. When the Pokémon appeared, they struck terror in those who saw their rise. The three Pokémon, knowing their own power, fled, running like the wind off into Johto’s grassland. Similarly, both Lugia and Ho-Oh flew away at the sight of the growing distance between people and Pokémon; while they never returned to Ecruteak, they yearned for a person to touch the hearts and souls of Pokémon once more.

Around these times other, smaller events occurred. 500 years before modern days, the Cianwood City Pharmacy, the world’s oldest pharmacy, was built. Around 400 years ago, Azalea Town in Johto was struck by a long-term drought wave; after bringing the rain back once again by yawning, Slowpoke gained an honorable position in that town.

In contemporary history, Ethan/Kris/Lyra leaves New Bark Town on an errand for Professor Elm. A red-haired boy steals one of Elm’s three Pokémon, and challenges him/her as Ethan/Kris/Lyra’s journey across Johto continues. A revived Team Rocket from Kanto, using plans formulated three years prior, enrages many Gyarados, including a red one, at the Lake of Rage; they then proceed to take over the Goldenrod Radio Tower in a desperate attempt to contact Giovanni. When they are defeated and Giovanni fails to return due to Celebi’s intervention, the interim leader, Archer, vows to never again re-form Team Rocket. Ethan/Kris/Lyra continues to gather Johto’s Badges, eventually gaining all eight and traveling to the Pokémon League at Indigo Plateau in Kanto, later to defeat the current Champion and get into the Hall of Fame.

But Ethan/Kris/Lyra’s most notable effect on Johto lies in their ability to encounter all three of the Legendary beasts, as well as summon the Unown, Lugia and Ho-Oh after their long absence. A new chapter in the region’s history begins.

Cities, routes, and other locations

Johto has ten cities and towns. These sites act as settlements for people to live and work in a functioning society. The Safari Zone Gate and Frontier Access act as towns, but they appear to be more of a tourist destination and are not considered cities or towns. As Johto has no autonomous Pokémon League, Kanto shares a League with the region, which borders between Johto and Kanto. Because of this, the two regions share a connection with each other, and unlike any other region, they are able to be traversed to with relative ease. Due to this landmass connection, the geography of Johto is relatively similar to that of its neighbor region.

The Johto region has 20 different routes, which are passages permitting Trainers to travel from one location to the next with relative ease. Johto and Kanto share the same route system, and therefore starts at Route 29, picking up from where Kanto’s left off at Route 28. The numbered routes count up to 48, with Routes 47 and 48 leading off into the far west only being accessible in Generation IV. Compared to the Kanto region, there aren’t many sea routes; there are many land routes and mountains. Some areas such as Route 33 are constantly raining, or are purged with other types of weather; however, this wasn’t seen until Generation IV.

The connecting landmass between Kanto and Johto doesn’t appear to be a fine line; but more or less a blurry one. Route 28 is technically owned by Kanto; however, it bridges the border between the two regions, making it the only route in history that enters two regions at one time. This is similar to Routes 26 and 27, that are strictly Kanto locations; however, they are able to be transported to via HM02 (Fly) from Johto in Generation IV.

Demographics

In the Johto region, including all the towns, cities, and other areas, the total population in HeartGold and SoulSilver is 452.

Cities and towns

Landmarks

Johto features some unique and scenic landmarks, whether they be natural or man-made. It prides itself towards mythology and tradition features, with most of the buildings, towers, caves, and locations holding a historical background. Some of the oldest places in Johto, even the Pokémon world, include the Ruins of Alph, Sprout Tower, Bell Tower, Burned Tower, and the Slowpoke Well.

The Ruins of Alph, located in central Johto, is the threshold to an ancient civilization that first contacted the Unown, and became the base of which the first system for writing was formed. The Ruins of Alph have said to have been around for at least 1500 year before modern times which makes it one of the first known structures built in the history of Pokémon. As of today, the ruins are being researched by scientists and are able to be visited as a tourist attraction by visitors.

The two towers of Ecruteak City which include the Bell Tower and the Burned Tower are oldest towers in the Pokémon world, dating back to 700 years ago. The two nine-tier towers were built to foster friendship and hope between Pokémon and people and the view from the top of the towers was said to be magnificent. The towers attracted many people to the city, until about 150 years ago, a lightning bolt struck the western tower, engulfing it in flames, burning the tower down. The towers are surrounded in mystery, and are said to be home to Legendary Pokémon, however, at this present point, only the ruins of the Burned Tower can be explored by Trainers, and the Bell Tower is off limits to most people.

Another famous historic location is the Sprout Tower, located in northern Violet City. The Sprout Tower is a tiered tower with multiple eaves, and much like the Bell Tower and the Burned Tower, it is constructed solely out of wood, creating a multi-story effect. Surrounding the tower is a beautiful lake in the center of Violet City, hosting several architectural bridges making its way across the water. Sprout Tower is dedicated to the gentle and peaceful nature of Bellsprout. The giant spine-like pillar located in the center of the tower acts as a support for the old tower structure, and it even protects the tall tower from sudden earthquakes. It is said that the main swaying pillar was, in fact, once a 100-foot-tall Bellsprout. Spout Tower is four stories tall. The ground floor is much like a visitors floor, where tourists come to see the unique style of which the tower was formed. There are three other upper levels, which are dedicated to Pokémon Training; monks who study diligently and train their gentle Bellsprout come to teach that all living beings coexist through cooperation.

Johto also features several different kinds of natural caves and mountains including Mt. Mortar, Mt. Silver, Dark Cave, Ice Path, Cliff Cave, and Union Cave. Mt. Mortar is a cave complex that travels through Johto’s northernmost mountain range. It is known by Trainers to be a confusing maze-like area with an interior cave known as the Waterfall Cave. Mt. Mortar has three entrances and is huge inside, one of the largest of all caves in the Johto. It has four floors, and its high Pokémon-encounter rate makes getting lost very costly. It has Surfable waterways, Waterfalls, Strength puzzles, and multiple levels. Dark Cave travels through central Johto, and although the dark caves run beneath the surface of the region, the mountain range is large and a barrier between areas of the region. Mt. Silver, in the east, is also quite large and complex splitting the two regions of Kanto and Johto in half, housing many powerful Pokémon, and it is where the most skilled Trainers train their Pokémon. Another natural landmark in Johto is Ilex Forest located just west of Azalea Town. The forest’s trees are so close together that all light is blocked out, and the forest seems to be in a perpetual night.

Some famous man-made landmarks include the Goldenrod Radio Tower, Battle Frontier, Pokéathlon Dome, and Safari Zone. The Goldenrod Radio Tower is a five-story tower located next to the Magnet Train station in downtown Goldenrod City. The radio tower broadcasts numerous programs daily, the most prominent of such being Professor Oak’s Pokémon Talk and Buena’s Password. For a short period time the tower fell victim to the clutches of Team Rocket, during which time none of the normal broadcasts were aired. The Battle Frontier, Pokéathlon Dome, and Safari Zone are all recently built attractions which provide entertainment and fun for tourists, allowing visitors to participate in activities and rides which require the help of Pokémon to complete.

Although the Johto region prides itself on the beach and some of its sea-side towns, the region has very few aquatic landmarks. The Lake of Rage is the region’s most prominent water attraction, said to have been a smoking crater until it filled with rainwater. The lake is home to the world-famous red Gyarados. Because of this irritable Pokémon, the lake was marked a dangerous place to go, since the Gyarados started tipping over boats and scaring swimmers. Another famous water landmark is the Whirl Islands. Named after the dangerous whirlpools that surround them, the Whirl Islands are four islands between Olivine and Cianwood City that are connected by a maze-like cavernous structure under the water’s surface. It is said that at the heart of the caves a Legendary Pokémon can be found.

Geography

The Johto region, like its neighboring region, Kanto, has a temperate climate. However, Johto’s climate is a bit wetter than that of Kanto’s.

Johto is notably more rural than the Kanto region, which leans more towards to the urban side. The region has an abundance of water to the west and south, with Cianwood City most likely being on a separate landmass. However, Johto is still dominated by land. The western parts of the region are mainly low-lying and forested and contain most of the region’s population. Johto’s ultra-modern Goldenrod City is found in the heart of the region, on the coast. It is the technological, industrial, and economic area of the Johto region. Due to its centralized position in the region, many smaller but important cities and towns connect to the city. There is one large mountain range encompassing almost the entire eastern half of the region, which separates Kanto and Johto and contains Mt. Silver. Blackthorn City is nestled deep between the mountains and is very unique because it is a city for Dragon Tamers.

Johto League

Main article: Johto League

The Johto League is the regional Pokémon League of the Johto region. Johto and Kanto share a single Elite Four, located at Indigo Plateau. Eight Johto League Badges are required to participate in League competitions. The Indigo League and Johto League share a single group of Elite Four and Champion; eight Badges from either region will allow a Trainer to battle the Elite Four at Indigo Plateau. Less commonly, it is known as the “Silver League”, usually when referring to the anime. The Silver Conference is the Johto League’s annual championship competition. It is held at the base of Mt. Silver.

Trivia

  • Johto lacks many elements that all of the other regions have. Most of these omissions are due to it sharing them with Kanto, which could be visited later on in the same games, and the fact that recycling old concepts have not become the norm yet in the games. Therefore, it is the only region without:
  • Johto shares its Pokémon League, Storage System developer, and villainous team with Kanto.
  • In Generations II and IV, between Johto and Kanto, the Dark type and the Ground type are the only types not represented by an official Gym. Viridian City, whose previous Gym Leader Giovanni, had the Ground type. However, when Giovanni left the Gym after being defeated by Red, he was replaced by Blue, who does not have a type specialty. Karen of the Elite Four uses Dark-type Pokémon, making the Ground type the only type to not have a Gym Leader or Elite Four member specialized in it in Johto and Kanto for Generations II and IV.
  • Unused location data for Johto (similar to the data for Hoenn and Kanto used for Pal Park) exists within the programming of Generation IV’s games. Pokémon actually caught in Johto, however, display as being from “faraway place” when traded to a game taking place in Sinnoh, much like Pokémon caught in a Platinum-exclusive location do when traded to Diamond or Pearl.
  • Kanto and Johto are the only regions that are connected to each other by land.
  • In the anime, Johto is the only region so far in which:
    • Ash did not meet a new traveling companion.
    • There is not at least one official Gym Badge that isn’t from the games.
    • Ash used Pikachu in the region’s every Gym battle.
  • The adjectival form of Johto is “Johtonian”, as revealed in the Official Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Guide.

Orre (Japanese: オーレ地方 Ōre-chihō) is the setting of the Generation III side series games Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. In other games, Pokémon obtained in Orre are listed as being met in a distant land (Japanese: 遠く離れた土地 distant land).

Orre has no wild Pokémon in Pokémon Colosseum, and has only a few starting to pop up in specific locations, known as Poké Spots, in Pokémon XD. In these circumstances, Trainers use Pokémon imported from regions of the Pokémon nation, primarily Johto and Hoenn. Pokémon battles are, for the most part, played in Double Battle style with the Trainers putting two Pokémon out each. There is no form of a Pokémon League in Orre, but rather, a variety of facilities which offer consecutive battles. However, Michael wanting to start his Pokémon journey when he comes of age would imply that there is at least something similar to a Pokémon League in Orre, if not an actual one.

Etymology and design concept

Etymology

The region’s name may be derived from ore, as a reference to the cities and towns that are named after minerals.

The inspiration for Orre was stated to be Phoenix, Arizona.[1]

History

Contemporary history

Prior to the events of Pokémon Colosseum, Orre was plagued by several crime syndicates, such as Team Snagem and Cipher. Both criminal organizations allied themselves as part of their plan to rule the world through Shadow Pokémon. Cipher supplied Team Snagem with Snag Machines, which allowed Snagem members to steal Pokémon from their Trainers.

Pokémon Colosseum

At the beginning of Pokémon Colosseum, Wes steals a Snag Machine from the strongly guarded headquarters of Team Snagem. Upon reaching Phenac City, he discovers a girl named Rui who had been captured by Team Snagem. Both of them journey across the Orre, snagging Shadow Pokémon, and uncovering the disastrous plan of the secret organization, Cipher. This shady group and its ambitious admins are the creators of Shadow Pokémon, closing their hearts to strengthen their stats. Wes learns how to reverse the effects of this process, and must capture all of Cipher’s Shadow Pokémon.

After defeating all of Cipher’s admins, Wes goes to Realgam Tower; after defeating the Admins again, Gonzap comes out and reveals that Cipher gave Team Snagem the Snag Machines. Afterwards, Snagem gave the Pokémon to Cipher, who created Shadow Pokémon; meaning that this was all one master plan hatched by Cipher. After defeating Snagem, Nascour, the boss of Cipher, is defeated by the player. Afterwards, it is revealed that Phenac City’s mayor Es Cade is actually Evice, the true boss of Cipher. After he is defeated he tries to escape; fortunately, a Ho-Oh uses Sacred Fire to stop him, saving the day. With Evice’s capture, Wes continues his journey by searching Orre for the remaining Cipher members and their Shadow Pokémon.

Between Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness

In the five years after the events of Colosseum, Cipher has created a Shadow Lugia, codenamed XD001, claimed to be immune to purification. During these five years, the S.S. Libra was sailing to Orre with Pokémon, when suddenly some helicopters appeared with Shadow Lugia, which picked up the ship as the sailors that fell out watched in awe. Shadow Lugia dropped it in the desert, where Cipher Admin Gorigan and his Cipher workers took every Pokémon on the ship but one to the Cipher Key Lair to transform them into Shadow Pokémon.

Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness

Cipher then proceeds to the northwest corner of Orre, where a facility called the Pokémon HQ Lab resides. Upon arrival, they abduct the lab’s chief researcher, Professor Krane, in an attempt to use his research for their own evil plans. Having witnessed the kidnapping, a young Trainer named Michael follows Cipher to an abandoned lab and rescues Krane.

Knowing that Cipher has to be stopped, Michael set off on a journey to save Orre. Armed with a Snag Machine built by Krane and his Pokémon Eevee, Michael rescues and purifies Cipher’s newest breed of Shadow Pokémon, does battle with their devious admins to shut down their operations, and even wins the trust of Team Snagem, who seeks to destroy Cipher and prove that they are the greatest criminals in all of Orre.

Eventually, Michael trailed Cipher to the main headquarters on Citadark Isle, where the organization’s Grand Master Greevil and his twin bodyguards (and sons) Ardos and Eldes welcomed him by summoning XD001. Michael proves too skilled and snags XD001 with the rest of Greevil’s Shadow Pokémon, and he responds by attempting to blow up the island. Though Ardos encourages him to go through with it, Eldes steps in and pleads with Greevil to accept defeat graciously. Greevil agrees and leaves with Eldes, while Ardos leaves in anger. With Cipher presumed disbanded with Greevil’s defeat, Michael proceeds to rescue the remaining Shadow Pokémon and purify the “unpurifiable” XD001.

Geography

This region is noticeably arid, being divided into a huge desert wasteland and a small, mountainous green region. In the center is Mt. Battle, a dormant volcano where Trainers go to sharpen their skills. Orre has very few settlements in it due to the dry climate. Its largest city, Phenac City, is located in Orre’s harshest environment. There is a lively port to the southwest of Orre, which is presumably how it keeps its connections with the other regions, using ships such as the S.S. Libra. Despite its environmental problems, it is one of the most advanced regions in terms of science and architecture. Due to the rough terrain, it is not known if there are any connecting routes. Wild Pokémon are very rare, appearing in only a handful of spots throughout the whole region. The map in Pokémon Colosseum was retconned in Pokémon XD, before seemingly being landlocked while the XD map has a sea or ocean to the west.

Trivia

  • The Pokémon Center in Phenac City is the only Pokémon Center in the region that has a trade center.

Unova イッシュ地方
Isshu region

The Unova region (Japanese: イッシュ地方 Isshu-chihō) is a region of the Pokémon world. It is the setting of Pokémon Black and White and Pokémon Black 2 and White 2. It was the fifth core series region to be introduced.

It is far away from the four other large regions, and the Pokémon which inhabit Unova are diverse and different from those of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh. In his director’s column, Junichi Masuda suggested that the geographical and social background for Unova draws inspiration from the New York City metropolitan area.[1][2] Although it is geographically based on New York City, it draws inspiration for its landmarks from the entire state of New York, which features a mixture of rural locations and urban areas as well as factory towns and industrial complexes.

Etymology and design concept

Etymology

Unova’s Japanese name, イッシュ Isshu, is derived from the Japanese word for “one variety”, 一種 isshu, or 1種類 isshurui. According to the game director Masuda, this is to express that although the region is diverse in species and race, they are all the same as living creatures when seen from a distance.[3]

The region’s English name likely comes from the Latin words unum or the Spanish word uno (one) and nova (new). It may also be derived from united, considering its basis on the largest city in the United States. It also sounds like parts of the phrase United States of America.

Design concept

Main article: Pokémon world in relation to the real world#Unova

Although some of Unova is geographically based on New York, the creators of the region took some liberties in regards to the surrounding areas. One of the largest cities in Unova, Castelia City, is based on Lower Manhattan, but to the immediate north of Castelia is (as opposed to a continuing metropolis as in real life) a vast desert. Nimbasa City, which is to the north of Castelia City, could be a reference to Broadway, which is located in Manhattan. Nacrene City, with its restored storehouses, is reminiscent of the ubiquitous lofts in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The division of Unova may also be a reference to the Boroughs of New York City. The Skyarrow Bridge is a reference to the Brooklyn Bridge, which connects Brooklyn and Manhattan. The Battle Subway is a reference to the New York City Subway, which is the most extensive public transit system in the world, as well as one of the oldest.

History

Mythological events

In mythology, Unova was created by uniting the warring peoples of the land by twin heroes. They used a single dragon sometime more than 2500 years ago. The brothers started to argue over their beliefs; the elder brother sought truth and the younger brother sought ideals. Their arguments split the single dragon into Reshiram, who sided with the older brother, and Zekrom, who sided with the younger brother. Since they were both born from the same dragon neither could defeat the other and the brothers declared that there was no right side. However, eventually their sons continued the fight and both the dragons started to battle again, destroying the Unova region with their fire and lightning powers before disappearing.

Sometime after the original dragon had been split into Reshiram and Zekrom, one of the two brothers and their respective dragon created the Relic Castle, which was the seat of a new civilization for people and Pokémon.

Also at an unknown point in the distant past, a civil war broke out in Unova that caused an intense forest fire. The many Pokémon that lived in the forest became trapped, though luckily the Swords of Justice came in to save them—Terrakion moved away boulders that blocked their escape route, Virizion used its nimble movements to protect Pokémon from looming flames, and Cobalion led the scared Pokémon out of the forest. These Pokémon would later become responsible for ending the war before disappearing into myths.

According to Lacunosa Town legend, a long time ago, a large meteor came from the sky containing a terrifying monster. It was said that at night, the monster would appear in the town along with the cold winds and take away humans and Pokémon to eat them. The residents of the town surrounded Lacunosa Town in a wall to keep the monster out, and a rule was then set on the town that forbade anyone from leaving at night and encouraged people to stay in their homes. While residents no longer believe this old story, they still stay inside of their houses at night to this day. The legendary monster, Kyurem, was really a remaining third Pokémon created when the primordial dragon had split into two.

A legend says Thundurus and Tornadus once raced across Unova, tearing up the lands with their respective weather-controlling powers, not caring about settlements and creatures in their path. Landorus, seeing the massive destruction the pair had brought to the region and its inhabitants, is said to have punished them so that they would never repeat their actions.

Meloetta once entertained the people of Unova with song and dance, but when sorrow filled the hearts of people, Meloetta lost this melody and its red shoes.

Dated history

  • 3,000 years prior to the events of Pokémon Black and White, the Relic items were created.
  • 2,500 years prior to the events of Pokémon Black and White, the Relic Castle was flourishing and the Darmanitan in front of it went to sleep.
  • 200 years prior to the events of Pokémon Black and White, an ultra-rich family purchased and named the Liberty Garden.
  • 200 years prior to the events of Pokémon Black and White, Village Bridge was constructed after the local river burst its banks, flooding the settlement that stood there previously.
  • 100 years prior to the events of Pokémon Black and White, the warehouses of Nacrene City were constructed.
  • 100 years prior to the events of Pokémon Black and White, Klink started appearing in Chargestone Cave.
  • 50 years prior to the events of Pokémon Black and White, Elgyem was seen for the first time when it appeared from far in the desert.

Contemporary history

Pokémon Black and White

In contemporary history, a present containing three starter Pokémon—one each for Cheren, Bianca, and Hilda/Hilbert—was sent to Hilda/Hilbert’s house in Nuvema Town by Professor Juniper on their mothers’ request, so that they could each start their Pokémon journeys through the Unova region, challenging each of Unova’s eight Gyms in order to collect Badges and eventually reach the Pokémon League. During their travels, Hilda/Hilbert met and battled with the members of Team Plasma many times, including their king, N, and encountered the mysterious Shadow Triad, with events coming to a head at Dragonspiral Tower, where N managed to capture one of the members of the Tao trio and invited Hilda/Hilbert to face him after they had beaten the Pokémon League and resurrected the complementary dragon from the Light StoneB/Dark StoneW. On retrieving the appropriate stone from Nacrene Museum and defeating the Elite Four, Hilda/Hilbert reached the Champion’s room, where N was waiting for them, having just defeated the Champion. N then summoned his castle, which rose out of the earth surrounding the Pokémon League; Team Plasma had been working tirelessly for years prior to build the fortress around the Pokémon League right under their nose, overworking the Pokémon gifted to them by Trainers they had emotionally manipulated into doing so for this purpose. N then invites Hilda/Hilbert into the castle to battle him in order to test the strength of their convictions.

On entering the castle, Hilda/Hilbert are ambushed by all of the Seven Sages (except Ghetsis), who planned to defeat them so that their king’s reign would be unopposed. Fortunately, Bianca arrived, bringing all the Gym Leaders of the region that she was able find with her (which includes all of them except for Chili, Cress, and Cilan, whom Bianca claimed she could not contact in time). The Gym Leaders then opted to engage the Seven Sages in battle on Hilda/Hilbert’s behalf, so that they were able to ascend through the castle and defeat N. Eventually, Hilda/Hilbert reached Team Plasma’s King in the throne room, where N summoned his member of the Tao trio, who subsequently came crashing through the farthest wall of the room. The presence of ReshiramW/ZekromB then activated the player’s dormant stone, which emerged from the Bag and transformed into its counterpart, ZekromW/ReshiramB. The latter then allowed Hilda/Hilbert to attempt to capture them and after doing so, Hilda/Hilbert proceeded to defeat N in the ensuing battle.

N’s loss to his opponent caused Ghetsis to storm into the room in rage, insisting that N was a complete failure and a freak and revealing his true motivation for Team Plasma. By separating all other Pokémon from their Trainers, while Team Plasma retained their own, he, as leader of the group (acting through N), would have been left in a position of power from which he could have dominated the world. However, his delusions of grandeur were cut short by his defeat in a final Pokémon battle at the hands of Hilda/Hilbert followed by his arrest.

N, however, was not arrested and subsequently flew from the land on ReshiramW/ZekromB in order to do some soul searching in light of Ghetsis’s revelations. He was not seen again in Unova, but there is a rumor that someone with a strong resemblance to N was spotted somewhere in a far-off region. Hilda/Hilbert then continued the rest of their journey, managing to also cover eastern Unova, (becoming the first person to successfully operate the Poké Transfer), locate and aid in the arrest of the remaining Seven Sages, and eventually return to the League to defeat the Pokémon League Champion Alder themselves. Afterwards, after some time reflecting, Bianca decides to become an assistant to Professor Juniper to aid in her research, and Hilda/Hilbert leaves Unova to search for N.

Between Pokémon Black and White and Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

During the two years between the events of Pokémon Black and White and Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, construction of the road between Castelia City and Nimbasa City through the desert was either completed and a small settlement was established on this roadB2, or abandoned after ancient ruins were discovered in the sand and excavatedW2. The gate between Route 4 and Nimbasa City was expanded into Join Avenue. The construction in the south of Driftveil City was completed, with the Pokémon World Tournament taking the place of the Cold Storage. The Entralink’s moat was drained or dried up, and a different type of Entree now grows in the center. A section was taken out of a mountain to the east, with Lentimas Town built in the new space.

Significant construction occurred in Undella Town, with the Riches moving away (except for the father) and their house being demolished; in its place, many new villas were built. In this construction effort, the mountain was dug away to the point where construction workers dug an entrance into Reversal Mountain. In addition, the Marine Tube was constructed between Undella Town and Humilau City.

Furthermore, Victory Road has collapsed. As a result, Route 10 is closed and replaced by another path, Route 22 and Route 23. Also, the entrance to Challenger’s Cave has collapsed.

Additionally, the coastline of Unova has changed between the games.

As revealed via Memory Link, Ghetsis reforms Team Plasma during this period.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

Nate/Rosa receives their first Pokémon from Bianca in their hometown of Aspertia City. Together with Hugh, who hopes to take back his sister’s Purrloin from Team Plasma, the duo takes on the new lineup of Gyms in the Unova region. After Nate/Rosa earns the Legend Badge from Drayden, Team Plasma attacks Opelucid City, covering the city in unbreakable ice. The Shadow Triad takes the opportunity to steal the DNA Splicers from Opelucid Gym. Nate/Rosa and Hugh chase Team Plasma to Humilau City, where after earning their final badge, the Wave Badge, they confront Zinzolin, Colress, and the Shadow Triad at the Giant Chasm. After the Triad releases Hugh’s sister’s Purrloin, now a Liepard, Hugh tells Nate/Rosa to go ahead and confront Team Plasma’s leader, Ghetsis.

Just before Ghetsis freezes Nate/Rosa alive with Kyurem’s Glaciate, N flies in on Reshiram/Zekrom, saving them. However, Ghetsis uses Kyurem’s power to turn Reshiram/Zekrom back into an orb, then uses the DNA Splicers to fuse it with Kyurem, turning it into BlackB2/WhiteW2 Kyurem. Nate/Rosa knocks out Kyurem, causing the two Dragon-type Pokémon to separate, then defeats an enraged Ghetsis. Thankful, N suggests that Nate/Rosa proceed to the Pokémon League. Heeding his words, Nate/Rosa ascend Victory Road, defeats the Elite Four, and emerges victorious in battle with the new Champion, Iris.

After returning home, Hugh’s sister thanks the player for helping her big brother, and tells Nate/Rosa that she has been dreaming of a Zoroark calling Nate/Rosa’s name. At Hugh’s suggestion, Nate/Rosa returns to Victory Road, finding a Zoroark that leads them to the ruins of N’s Castle, where N and Reshiram/Zekrom challenge them to battle. After being defeated, N says goodbye to his dragon and releases it by asking it to turn back into an orb to give to Nate/Rosa. Nate/Rosa climbs to the top of Dragonspiral Tower, and faces ReshiramW2/ZekromB2 again, this time, in an attempt to capture it. After this is done, N returns and tells the player that Kyurem has reawakened. With this, Nate/Rosa heads to the Giant Chasm again, catches Kyurem in its normal form, and recovers the lost DNA Splicers.

Routes

Unlike previous regions, Unova’s routes do not follow the same numbering system, with a jump to 301, but are numbered 1-23, paralleling the Kanto region’s numbering system and emphasizing Unova’s dissociation from the previous four regions.

In the anime, it is also far enough away from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh that travelling to or from the region required either via airplane (as Ash and Delia did to arrive in Unova) or by ship (as evidenced by the return journey), the latter also requiring passage through the Decolore Islands to reach Kanto.

Geography

Unova is divided by two rivers that lead into an ocean to the south of it. These rivers cannot be surfed on, with the exception of the river directly below Village Bridge. It divides Unova into central and eastern peninsulas and a western landmass. These three landmasses are connected by five bridges: the Skyarrow Bridge, the Driftveil Drawbridge, the Tubeline Bridge, Marvelous Bridge, and the Village Bridge. The eastern part of Unova is further divided by mountains that makes a southeast part and northeast part. The southeastern part is important to Trainers who want to compete in the Pokémon league since two Gyms are located there, but the northeastern part is not since there are no Gyms there and it mostly has tourism, as evidenced by the amount of people speaking foreign languages. Further away from this bundle of towns is where the Pokémon League is located. Interestingly, the northeastern part is the only place in the region to find Pokémon species foreign to Unova outside of Swarms. The central peninsula of Unova consists of two of the largest cities in the Pokémon world, Castelia City and Nimbasa City, as well as Opelucid City further north, all of which contain Gyms. Every bridge in Unova connects to the central part of the region from either the east or west. The western side contains medium-sized towns and more varied landscapes but it also has three Gyms there, making it another destination to visit for any Pokémon Trainer.

Unova is a mixture of urban and rural land. The region features 21 settlements which reflect the diversity of the region. Many cities have buildings that resemble real-world buildings, such as Striaton City and Castelia City. However, some cities remain the way buildings in the past do, such as Humilau City, which has mostly wooden buildings on platforms above the ocean. Castelia City, a sprawling metropolis, is one of the largest cities in the Pokémon world. Nuvema Town, which is inhabited by the Pokémon expert Professor Juniper, is smaller and quieter. Black City is a version-exclusive city found only in Pokémon Black. Unova’s landscape also features several forests (one of which, White Forest, is also version-exclusive), a desert, a magnetic cave and areas where the move Dive can be used outside of battle. Although Unova appears in some ways more technologically advanced than the previous regions, this development is not spread across the whole of the region. There are several aesthetic differences in the region depending on the version; in Pokémon White and White 2, these changes make the geography more rural looking, while in Pokémon Black and Black 2, these changes are more technological in appearance.

Climate

Main article: Season (mechanic)

The climate of Unova, unlike other regions, solely depends on the time of the year.

Unlike previous regions, where climatic change was experienced locally (that is to say, some routes would always feature snow, and some routes would always feature rain), Unova is susceptible to national seasonal change. Spring, summer, autumn, and winter each last approximately thirty days, and recur three times each within a year. Each season brings with it different weather patterns, unlocks different events, and presents altered Pokémon availabilities.

  • Unova is tied with Galar with the most Gym Leaders, with 14 in total.
  • Unova has the most Gyms in cities, with all eleven of them. Sinnoh and Kalos both also have all of their Gyms in cities, but only have eight Gyms each.
  • Unova is the only region in which multiple gyms specialize in the same type: the Striaton Gym (which also specializes in Grass and Fire) and the Humilau Gym both specialize in Water types, and the Nacrene Gym and Aspertia Gym both specialize in Normal types.
  • Unova is the only region to have two Victory Roads.
  • The adjectival form of Unova is “Unovan”, as mentioned in Terrakion’s Pokémon Shield Pokédex entry.

Highlights of the areas within each Pokédex

Kalos (Japanese: カロス地方 Kalos-chihō) is a region of the Pokémon world. It is the setting of Pokémon X and Y. It was the sixth core series region to be introduced.

The Kalos region is shaped like a five-pointed star, with one of its biggest cities being Lumiose City in the north-central part of the region. It features a vast network of rivers and waterways snaking through much of its landscape, cities and towns. North-east of Lumiose City lies a mountain range where more frigid temperatures exist, extending down into the plains below. Western Kalos features a vast ocean, where the shoreside city of Shalour City lies in the middle of a cove.

Contemporary history

In contemporary history, Calem/Serena leaves their home in Vaniville Town, meeting Shauna and Serena/Calem, who invite them to join the pair for a meeting in Aquacorde Town. Calem, Serena, and Shauna receive their starter Pokémon from Tierno and a Pokédex from Trevor on behalf of Professor Sycamore. After delivering a letter to their Mom from Professor Sycamore, they head on an adventure traveling across Kalos challenging Gyms in order to earn eight Badges to then challenge the Pokémon League. Over the course of their journey, they come into contact with Team Flare, an organization whose goal is to create a “beautiful and better” world while making money. They try to do this by stealing Fossils from Glittering Cave, siphoning electricity from the Kalos Power Plant, stealing the Poké Balls from the Poké Ball Factory in Laverre City, and attempting to agitate and capture an Abomasnow. Calem/Serena also encounters a mysterious giant called AZ on several occasions, initially on Kalos Route 13. After earning their seventh Badge from Olympia, Calem/Serena is contacted by Lysandre, a man introduced by Professor Sycamore, who reveals both himself as the leader of Team Flare, and his intention to use the “ultimate weapon” to eliminate all life in the world except for those in Team Flare. Calem/Serena battle Lysandre, first in Lysandre Labs, and again in the Team Flare Secret HQ, before making their way down to the basement where they find XerneasX/YveltalY and battle them, before battling against Lysandre once more. Even though Lysandre is defeated, and Calem/Serena and their friends reason with him, he still fires the ultimate weapon. The blast the weapon emits destroys it and buries Lysandre and the HQ, ultimately disbanding Team Flare. Calem/Serena then heads to the Pokémon League where they defeat the Elite Four and Diantha, becoming Champion of Kalos. Professor Sycamore then holds a grand ceremony in Kalos to celebrate Calem/Serena’s victory, and all of their friends’ efforts in defeating Team Flare. During the ceremony, a large mysterious man challenges Calem/Serena to a battle and is defeated, but is grateful to them, for in the battle, he finally felt free from the sorrow and rage he felt in creating the Ultimate Weapon. As such, the man is revealed to be the ancient king AZ, and having once again become the man who loved Pokémon with all his heart, his long lost partner Floette returns to him, resulting in a tearful reunion.

After the ceremony, Calem/Serena is invited to Kiloude City to partake in its Battle Maison, and is given a train pass for it by Professor Sycamore. After partaking in a few battles there, they are informed by Professor Sycamore that the Anistar sundial can radiate special energy, and their Mega Ring is upgraded to be able to locate Mega Stones hidden across Kalos during twilight. Calem/Serena then returns to Lumiose City, where they are contacted by Looker, who has a series of cases he wants them to investigate. Calem/Serena takes part in a series of trials across Lumiose and become’s Looker’s second-in-command. During the investigations, Calem/Serena and Looker meet a girl named Emma and her Espurr named Mimi, who are living in the alleys of Lumiose. Eventually, Looker offers to let Emma live in the Looker Bureau. However, soon after, a mysterious figure vandalizes the Lumiose Museum and also lures Trainers in to steal their Pokémon. Upon investigating these cases, and through the help of Malva, they learn that the crimes are being committed by Essentia, who is actually Emma in a suit that enhances her power, but she is unconscious in doing this: she is actually being controlled by Xerosic. Calem/Serena and Looker track Xerosic down to a secret floor in Lysandre Labs, and manage to defeat Essentia in a series of battles. Looker captures Xerosic, and takes him away, and parts ways with Calem/Serena and Emma, and despite the latter’s hesitance, Looker reassures her that their bonds will always be strong no matter how far apart they are.

Cities, routes, and other locations

Kalos has sixteen cities and towns, and a Pokémon League.

Like in Unova, the routes of Kalos start counting again from 1, likely to represent its geographical isolation from the previously introduced regions. There are 22 routes in total.

In the anime, like Unova, Kalos was far enough away from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh to require traveling via airplane (as evidenced by how Ash and Alexa arrived in the region, as well as how Ash and Serena left the region for Kanto and Hoenn, respectively).

Demographics

The Kalos region has a total population of 1288 including all the towns, cities, routes and areas.

Geography

One of the region’s many castles in the anime

The geography of Kalos varies greatly within the region. The region is naturally bordered by a vast ocean to the west and northwest, and the eastern and southern borders are formed by mountain ranges. These borders give the region its signature star-like shape, as a large peninsula reaches out to the sea in the northwest, creating one point, and elsewhere the coastline, mountain ranges and rivers create the remaining four points. Kalos is made up of three distinct divisions, all with their own unique characteristics in both geography and Pokémon: Central Kalos, Coastal Kalos, and Mountain Kalos. The bustling Lumiose City is located near the point where all three divisions meet.

Central Kalos is located in the centric and southern parts of the region. The area is dominated by large forested plains with multiple rivers crossing it, with very few changes in elevation. Several towns are surrounded by walls of some sort, and there are also many old castles and châteaus. Many important human settlements and landmarks are located here, such as Vaniville Town, Santalune City, a portion of Lumiose City, and the Parfum Palace.

Coastal Kalos is located by the vast sea in the western parts of Kalos. The mainly explored area is a strip between mountains and the sea. This area is dominated by rocky shores in the southwest and lush beaches and forests in the northwest. Most human settlements are located by the sea. The peninsula in the northwest is known for its menhir stones. There are many important locations, such as the Reflection Cave, Geosenge Town, and Shalour City with its Tower of Mastery.

Mountain Kalos is located in the eastern reaches of the region. The area is largely mountainous and the temperatures tend to be cooler than in the other parts, with some routes and settlements having snow covering them. To the north there is a marshy area that is said to be haunted. However, the settlements are plentiful, and there are some important landmarks, such as the Kalos Power Plant that is built on a harsh wasteland, the Poké Ball Factory in Laverre City, and the Pokémon League.

Kiloude City is located outside the three divisions, and is only reachable by train from Lumiose City. The city is relatively isolated from the other parts of the region, being completely surrounded by mountains.
