I'm looking for something witty to say up here and I'm drawing a blank - I'm sure you can do better or just edit this out. You can also use this div to get in some additional info at the bottom.
So I've been doing a bit of thinking in regards to "Pokemon Regions". As you start to forget the definition, different Pokemon regions almost seem like different Pokemon countries. And yet regions are smaller than provinces/states but do contain multiple towns/cities. The first 4 games seem very different from each other with unique legendaries and yet they're all part of the same country in the end. With that in mind it shows how small and concentrated regions actually are.
Of all my Pokemon fangames, the biggest in terms of scale would probably be "Pokemon: Midnite Waltz". And as I went over my sketched maps I realized that each of the 5 districts of my Luna region were much too different and big to be in a region. So I've changed the language a bit and here are the new areas of my game (no order):
"Nur (Light) Region" (Originally the "East Luna Region & East Sea")
A vast desert; the lightest area of the region due to a large quantity of Nur Crysts (Sun Stones). There aren't too many small towns and the most life is found in the south east port city and the kingdom capital city in the middle of the region where the Malikah (queen) resides. Except for the port which is very diverse, the peoples of the Nur Region are comprised mainly of some human and the "Oracle"; a race of water Elementals often able to tell the near future. The eastern sea is governed by a mermaid race but they don't often make contact with outsiders.
"Chopin Region" (Originally the "Snowy North Luna Region")
As it originally was it is a snowy region and is very very cold. Unlike the Nur Region, it has no big cities but does have multiple small Towns hidden away called "Igloo Villages". Due to the weather the people of the region generally don't get much of a chance to meet each other and with that there is no leader of the region uniting them all. The region is populated by some humans as well as a race of a white tiger-like anthro's called the "Teeg". The Chopin Region is also known as the culinary capital of the province due to rare food that can only be found in these cold areas.
"Autumn Region" (Originally the "West Luna Region")
The Autumn Region is the region you start off in and as it's name suggests, for the most part the areas tend to have fall colors. The Region has a couple towns and cities but also a lot of deep forests and wide open fields. The Autumn Region is mostly populated by humans but also has a few other rare races like a fairy and Moogle-like race for example. Fashion is a big industry in the Autumn Region but another big thing is Lunar Crop (plants that don't need sun) growing.
"Free Region" (Originally the "South Luna Region")
The smallest of the regions, the "Free Region" is a neutral zone of multiple areas not claimed by other regions. The population is very diverse; most being traders or pirates. New Races you can find there are a sea bird anthro race and on an island to the far south are a dragon anthro race. The majority of the region is just ocean but is said to contain many unique fish, Pokemon and dangers.
"Wonder Grave" (Originally the "Central Luna Region")
The "Wonder Grave" is an empty crater in the ground and is generally off limits to everyone; considered a holy ground. Floating far above it is a meteor known as "Divinity"; no one knows how it just sits in the sky but it does. Carved within it is "Divinity City" which is a new city created after mining out the stones and crystals of the meteor. Unlike the rest of the Wonder Grave, Divinity City is perfectly okay to explore if you can fly there. The people of Divinity City are very diverse and contain no new species.
It makes more sense and also brings out the idea of how large the scale of exploration is. It's just a name change but it does make a bit of difference. Now having each their own people, culture and legendaries make a bit more sense. Also to note, rather than each region having a league, all the gyms of the entire region (8) will make up the Provincial League. Enjoy.
This is almost the same div as in the header, it has an added white line at the top to set it apart from the stuff above - you may want to use it to add a copyright notice, or a short blurb concerning commissions or whatever else you want. I'm now using it to tell you that the cup in the header was from Kaotiksymphony-Stock
and that I used MouritsaDA-Stock
