No, not Malie, Konikoni City.You mean Malie City? It's based on the Johto region so... it's still Japanese, actually. And having one city inspired by another's architecture doesn't really mean that the environment is better for a pokemon based on an animal from another place. I would really rather not have to wait for us to get to the "right" region to get certain animals.
I prefer to wait for the "right" or a better suiting region. I'd rather want a dolphin with Greek motifs in a Greek inspired region than one swimming in Galar's waters (despite existing in the UK). That way, the region feels like having a more appropriate fauna that evolved in that environment and feels natural. It wasn't by accident that despite appearing in Kalos, one of the routes where Pancham can be found in Alola (11) has what looks like bamboo. In it, it's absolutely fitting.
