Default Kalos Region Speculation Thread



Now available on the official Pokemon XY site is a map of the Kalos Region.

Let's all look at the tiny icons and try to figure out what everything could be.

From the map I think i can spot an ice gym (snowflake building in snow area), fire/ground gym (desert area), rock gym (where the giant rocks are on the west side)

A weird huge tree or probably some kind of tree house theater? Or a weird big mushroom.


Some kind of underwater monster arm?


A solitary red roofed house in a mountain?

Based on the structure of the map and the variety of areas, I'm confident I'll have a good time exploring, especially with the dynamic camera.

Alright, here I go. Take a look at this screenshot from the game.



As you can see, this is the end of Route 3 in Kalos and in the distance you can see a town. Notice that there seems to be stone walls surrounding the town. Also notice that there's a small body of water north of the town. Then, if you look towards the middle of the town, you'll see what looks like a water fountain. Now, notice the green roofs on most of the houses. Finally, notice how the road is mostly straight but then curves to the left at the top to reach the town. Alright, now take a look at this screenshot from the map of Kalos:

The footage shown so far also features a forest so I'd say that's the wooded area in the south.

I think it's safe to say that the starting town is the one at the bottom.

Maybe something like this:

A building with a giant tree growing out of it:


You climbing a tree:


It's probably a flying gym due to its height. (Plant is also a good guess.)

It's a rather large bridge so it would have to show on the map somewhere. That's the only spot I could find that fits as far as placement and color go.

We have to keep in mind that this map is an artist's representation and may not 100% accurately depict the map in-game.

Also, neogaf is wrong. That screenshot is from here:

I'm wondering just how much bigger this game will be going from DS to 3DS. Gen 4 was definitely bigger than Hoenn, but I wonder what the 3ds' capabilities will be for this. With the map being in 3 different sections, I hope this thing is humongous.

Possible legendary location?

this is the map and in the top left is a cave around a cluster of rocks possible legendary location


enlarged image of possible legendary location

Added after 14 minutes:




Also noticed this that might be useful there is a cave system in the bottom left linking out all sides of the mountain... ive boxed the exits/entrances in white and the red box looks to be some sort of rock formation which is most likely a look out to the ocean and probably a pinnacle location in the story line ps. dont know why its a gif :/ sorry

The cave looks pretty small, so I think it is either a cave where a legendary is, or possibly something else and you actually get to go down in a deep cavern under that cave entrance.

And I'm glad you spotted out that cave system thing, it makes me think that the region could be slightly less linear and you might backtrack at least a few times like hoenn.

Or maybe like in pokemon silver, where you find lugia.
It's probably not lugia we're talking about, but it would be cool if old legendaries returned

Yeah true :/, the cave looks small but for all we know it could lead to an underground cave where a lets say "water type legendary lives" you never know lol. ive spotted loads of things out on that map of kalos but i cba cropping all the photos :/ lets just say i think the story line on X & Y is going to be something abit "more" compared to the old games ... "opinion btw"

No doubt the storyline on X/Y is going to be more involving and greater than the previous games. Just from the scope of the map, this game looks huge!

Also I'm curious as to what this little formation is right next to the water; a village? or is it like a graveyard, similar to celestial tower, where you capture the ghost pokemon?



As for legionaries, The small island, the stonehenge looking place, and the cave in the mountains are probably the most likely.. There also appears to be a mansion (maybe haunted) near the pink/yellow floral city, as well as mine tracks coming from the mountain on the right.. mini games? :P

The rock formation on the right hand side of that photo you cropped looks to me like a possible rock climb area

I hate to be 'that guy,' but a couple of different GameStop employees (different stores) have said that the new X and Y games will feature ALL Generation Pokemon. Did I completely miss something or are the employees just simple?

Also, if this game features a Jump button (which it probably won't), this game is going to be super easy to speed run.

im pretty sure the gamestop people don't know more than whats been announced, but I can guess they meant that the regional pokedex would feature some pokemon from all generations based on what was shown.

and a jump button? I see no use or benefit for a jump button. but in the trailer there was a time where the character jumped automatically from one ledge to the other using a rope. although I do wonder what hopping down a ledge will be like. I didn't see any ledges in the trailers.

(will this revive the thread? Stay tuned!)

I just had a wild idea. What if the Eiffel tower structure in Lumiose city is just a modern version of the Yggdrasil tree? In a lot of photos I see of the norse mythology, the tree is in the middle. (I also am watching Sword Art Online and it has an yggdrasil tree) At the top could be Yveltal and Xerneas could probably be somewhere else in Kalos. Or the tower could be a desguise made by the evil team long ago and it covers where the yggdrasil tree used to be.....

Sorry, I just wanted to put this in this thread to see if anyone had thoughts about this idea.

Default We know more from the latest trailer

At the left you can see a tower/castle, it is the tower of mystery I think and it has someting to do wit Mega Evolution. The fighting type gym should be nearby that tower. It is in Shalour city
