Is any of this actually officially confirmed? Because making speculation behind why the producers are making the home base set in Kanto is exactly that: speculation. None of it is confirmed, which is why people are questioning the decision: we haven't been given an answer.However, they definitely have their reasons.
And since we have NOT been given a reason by official sources, then the only thing the fans have to go off of is speculation, which doesn't really hold very well in a defense as to why the home base is set in Kanto and not Galar. This could apply to the arguments as to why the home base is set in Galar, yes, but the key difference is that one is speculation for something that isn't there while another is speculation for something that is.
And the reasoning for these arguments in the first place are not as much as people getting tired of Kanto, but rather, more people wanting the Galar region to be explored more. If the home base is literally at the place that is desired to be explored, obviously, there would be a greater quantity of said "exploration". Note how majority of Journeys episodes have been set in Kanto and showcase multiple Kantoneon pokemon. Six episodes into the anime and we've already had an entire episode dedicated to merely showing off the Kanto bug types. It's only natural for people to assume Galar would get explored more had the base been set IN Galar with the evidence provided, giving this speculation a bit more of a basis than the speculation as to what reasoning the producers would have to set the base in Kanto.
