*I'm still making my way through New Pokémon Snap so if this is completely wrong feel free to correct me.*

So like, this might be completely off the wall bonkers, but I can't help but notice one of the trivia messages that pop up during the loading screen of NPS talks about the pictures on the wall of the Laboratory and how they were taken by Rita but the Professor has no clue where they're from.

Now it could be something later in the story, but assuming it isn't then could these pictures be hinting as to the location of Gen 9? :confused:

I was also wondering about this and was about to do a big speculation post about it because Pokemon games have hinted towards future ones in the past, but while doing some research I discovered that these photos simply depict some concept art from the recent Pokemon movie Coco. Here are some screenshots.

I knew the red-roofed building in the smaller picture looked familiar, but I couldn't place it.

The giant Acadia tree makes me think this unknown region is a warm place, which works for gen 9 because we just got a cold region with galar, they wouldn't do 2 cold regions in a row.

Seeing this reminds me why a certain place only tags Cyndaquil line pics just as "Pokémon".

Where specifically? Any ideas?

My personal biases are indicating somewhere in southern Europe.

I always thought the Cyndaquil line were very clearly porcupines?
I think Cyndaquil has the long nose of an echidna while Typlosion has a badger-like snout, in contrast to porcupines which have a flatter face; I think Quilava bears the closet resemblance to a porcupine. While I do believe the whole line was partially inspired by porcupines, I think Cyndaquil's and Typlosion's primary inspirations were other animals.

If gen 9 is based off Canada, I hope the legendary Pokemon are a Moose and a Loon.

Moose Pokemon - Ground/Grass Type
Loon Pokemon - Water/Flying Type

I'd love to see a region based on either Australia, Egypt or Brazil. I don't care so much about new types that could be introduced or any game changing mechanics for the games but I pray that there will be no new form gimmick or special battle attack novelty like we've had in recent Gens...

Ex-Yugoslavia, Russia, and Germany are some of my favorite predictions, though I wouldn't mind Italy or Spain (they're more likely on account of the cold/hot divide and fame)
