I would love it if they do "lateral regions" with these "more obscure" places where the starters are a mix of the starters from the existing "main" regions with one new original line (i.e. Rowlet, Piplup and a brand new fire starter). They would make for nice side games imo.
IDK if Singapore counts as a well known country or not but I would love a mini-region based on it.



Just look at this illustration-A beautiful blend of all the regions so far! I also love how many of the landmarks already have pokemon associated with them. There's another legend surrounding one of the surrounding islands called Kusu Island whereby a magical tortoise turned itself into an island to save two shipwrecked sailors. That tortoise could be a totem Torterra! As a tribute to the three predominant cultures there, I'd like the starters to be Tepig (also cause there are wild boars there), Grookey (IDK there's something Indiany about Grookey imo) and a new water cat that evolves into a Merlion/Shedu. .

I’m pretty sure Canada's very well known across the globe...
It is, but Canada is hardly ever represented in video games when the US always overshadows it.

Can I tell you just how ecstatic I was when Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations actually had a Canadian character? That's super rare.

Mongolia! I went there when I was 16 for a month with my school as part of a voluntourism thing, and it was A M A Z I N G. Aside from the natural wonder of the vast, open steppes, I thought there culture was really interesting and I just think it'd be neat to see it featured in Pokemon.

Not trying to argue about who has it worse but non-western countries hardly get representation anywhere and when they do it sometimes ends up being a caricature of their actual culture, and I thought this thread meant to celebrate those nations.

I'm still not opposed to Canada being included in this thread with ideas though! It was just something that popped up in my mind when I saw the thread title and your post.

I personally want Game Freak to base a region on a historical kingdom, empire, or nation state that’s no longer around. For example, I’d love to see what Game Freak could do with things like the Babylonian Empire, even if it would need to be modernized.

I'm not saying that Canada needs to be represented and I certainly do understand that non-western countries get even fewer representation. I think it would be great if we had a region based on India.

I'm just saying how it is for Canada. And my post was partially intended to be a joke. I'm Canadian and I always laugh at how it gets the short-end of the stick. It's what I'm used to.

Morocco would be great . tha atlas mountains , mount toubkal , mount musa , hercules cave , rose valley , all the desert ... are all great places to see in a game (the most of the other sites are about islam)
The professor would graduated from al akhawayn university and the legendaries are the atlas felines with aisha kendisha as a ghost-type

Not exactly sure if it's unpopular or not, but Romania would be an awesome country to see as a region. (I also wanna see Italy as well but I've seen quite a lot of people on various forums that want this as a region too, so I'm not counting it as unpopular in my post)

Points of interest to see:
Salina Turda salt mine:

Merry Cemetery:

Peleș Castle:

Old Town Sighișoara:

Wooden Churches of Maramureș :

Vaser Valley Forestry Railway:

The Sphinx natural rock formation (Bucegi Natural Park):

And obligatory Bran Castle (Dracula's Castle):
Romania. This! I was going to say exactly the same place, i think it would make a gorgeous region and it's the best country to represent Eastern Europe. The country is mostly known by Dracula but other than that people don't know much about it.


Other interesting points:

Hoia Baciu haunted forest
