We bring an interesting message related to one of the most beloved franchises by igamesnews. It is indeed about Pokémon.
In the compilation that you have below, we can know the complete list of real-world locations that are reflected in the franchise. The truth is that it is a fairly extensive and curious list, with examples that perhaps we have overlooked.
You have them all below:
- Japan inspires the entire franchise and Kanto, with direct references to the city of Kyoto
- In addition to the Unova and Alola regions, which are inspired by the city of New York and Hawaii, United States is also reflected with Lieutenant Surge
- Guyana is where Mew lives
- Kenya: In Pokémon Gold and Silver, a guard named Randy has a Spearow named Kenya
- China It appears in various Pokédex entries, such as the one for Arcanine. It is mentioned that this is a legendary Pokémon in China thanks to its beauty and magnificent speed.
