Best Pokemon regions

Marti Bennett chooses her top three

The geography of a Pokemon game is very important. Each route, town, and city needs to have something special to make it stand out. Pokemon Black and White's Unova region had Castelia City, an urban area based on New York City. Yet Unova isn't my favourite. Here are my top three best Pokemon regions.

3. Hoenn

Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire were released for the Game Boy Advance in November 2003 (Europe). Set in the region of Hoenn, players have to fight Team Aqua or Team Magma whose goal it is to change to landscape of Hoenn. Team Aqua want more water throughout Hoenn, and Team Magma want more land.

Ruby and Sapphire were the first Pokemon games on the GBA and this more powerful handheld enabled Game Freak to create a much more detailed Pokemon region.

Hoenn has a very interesting landscape. A sizeable portion of the region is covered in water, which gives it a very different look to other regions in the main series. The most interesting places to live in Hoenn have to be Fortree City and Pacifidlog town. Fortree City is a place where people live in treetop houses, and Pacifidlog Town inhabitants live on an wooden plank island in the sea. When I ask people why they think Hoenn is so great, the reply is often how different the towns and cities are, especially Fortree City.

Pokemon Emerald was released a few years later and introduced the Battle Frontier. This was a brand new island that couldn't be found in Ruby and Sapphire. The Battle Frontier had several different battle challenges to participate in, each with different rules. BP gained can be used towards moves or special items.

There is still a lot of love for Generation 3. It feels like I see people saying 'remake Ruby and Sapphire' almost every day. Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald had decent story lines and the environment reflected the story perfectly. Maybe some day they will be remade, but I feel Game Freak should be focusing on new games for 3DS after Pokemon Black and White 2 are released later this year.

2. Sinnoh

Just like Hoenn, Sinnoh was also a setting for a new generation of Pokemon on a new Nintendo handheld. This time it was Pokemon Diamond and Pearl on DS and the technological advancements of DS once again led to more diversity in the Pokemon world.

The land of Sinnoh is somewhat spilt in two as you have the huge Mt. Coronet in the middle. It is believed that is is the biggest mountain in all of the Pokemon games.

To the north-east of the region there is an island where you can find the Fight Area. Here you can access an improved Battle Frontier similar to the one that was in Hoenn. My personal favourite part of this island is the Resort Area. As an exclusive feature to Pokemon Platinum you are given your very own luxury villa! Admittedly it's purely cosmetic, but there are plots for berries outside and you can buy items to decorate it.

What makes Sinnoh so great is beneath the surface. In Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum you are able to use an item called the Explorer Kit to visit The Underground. In The Underground you were able to make a secret base and decorate it. You could also dig for rare items like fossils and evolution items. I think I spent more time underground in Sinnoh then over ground!

    Personally, I think Johto is the worst region. It's just too short, and doesn't have enough variety (even Kanto has more variety than Johto), and in Gen II it was ruined even more by the apalling appearance of Kanto. Johto's better in Gen IV, but even then, I don't like it that much. My favourite region is and always will be Hoenn.

  2. Slinkington Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 08:24

    I like Kanto the best. Johto is pretty weak, but because you came back to Kanto in Gold/Silver it made up for it. I don't really like any of the other regions in Pokemon games. :/

  3. OracleOfPokemon Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 08:27

    Kanto and Johto are just plain boring, though in HGSS, they were pretty cool.
    Unova looks the best, but there just isn't enough of it.

    The best two are Hoenn and Sinnoh, I think, 'cos Hoenn is the most interesting, and the only tropical region. Sinnoh is just plain cool, the first region to have snow!

    I quite like Orre from XD and Colosseum, because it was so depressingly bleak, except for Agate Village and Phenac City.

  4. Avalanche2114 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 08:53

    My favourite region is Hoenn. Every location is beautiful in its own way and it doesn't once feel plain or bland which is what I can't say for Kanto and Johto. Sinnoh is a close second for the same reasons as Hoenn but I think it isn't as good.

  5. ZeldaKing Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 09:05

    1. Hoenn
    2. Kanto
    3. Johto

    these are the best for me, Unova was far too linear and there was only one place that captured my imagination in Sinnoh and that was route 209

  6. NintyHippo Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 09:20

    Johto is the best Pokemon region, followed by Kanto. Goldenrod City is my favourite Pokemon city, and Kanto has the big mountain that you can battle Red at the top of in HeartGold, and is also the region where you can rematch gym leaders in the same game. Johti has so many great areas; it has the park with the bug catching contest, the Pokeathlon and the Lake Of Rage where you can catch a shiny Gyarados. Johto and Kanto are the regions where you fight Team Rocket, the best villians in Pokemon. Sinnoh is third, Unova is next and I haven't been in Hoenn yet.

  7. TenTen Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 09:31

    Hoenn is by far my favourite region, partially because Ruby was the first pokemon game I played, partially because the size and diversity, but mainly because of the secret bases! Man, I loved those...

  8. popcorn man Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 09:33

    The people who dislike Johto and Kanto are people who's first Pokémon game was Generation III or IV. They like what they know best and the same applies for me, I grew up playing Pokémon Gold and Blue so naturally Johto is my favourite. I do agree that Kanto is a little bit on the plain side but Johto has so much to offer, there's massive cities, forests, surfing parts, hidden areas... There's the lake of rage, the bug catching contest, team rocket, Apricorn Pokéballs in Azelea town, The sisters and the towers in Ecruteak City, the whirlpool bits and ngaaah it's just so awesome.

    The regions in order of awesomeness are:

    1. Johto
    2. Hoenn
    3. Unova
    4. Kanto
    5. Sinnoh

    Sinnoh is goddamn ugly. Hated dat region.
    I enjoyed all of the games thoroughly but P/D/Pl were okayish.

  9. shy guy 64 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 09:40

    i agree johto is the best

  10. CyberGW Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 10:05

    I love Sinnoh to bits. The towns are all different and it has a real sense of culture.

  11. colourblindyoshi Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 10:09

    i think johto is the best, but its a bit small, but its allways come with kanto, which makes it a fine little region. i count johto and kanto together mostly, and they're just about perfect. hoenn is the best outside of these in my opinion, because its mental. for example - why would anyone live in sootpolis city? its the most inaccessible place ever, and its a whole city. the whole variation of the places in hoenn is very nice and different to the cities in other games, even black and white, which has some mental excuses for cities, and one or two big, useful ones.

  12. C00LI098 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 10:36

    Johto definitely has a unique, unrivaled charm, but it's just not expansive enough. Hoenn and Sinnoh are very close for me, but I went with Hoenn in the end. Unova is brilliant, but there's not enough of it, and it's too linear.

  13. torterratrainer Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 10:44

    Hoen had everything, the most engaging plot, powerful starters (unlike the weak snivy and chikorita) and great characters. 2nd is sinnoh because the only game to reach 200+ hours was pokemon platinum (you could reach level 100 with less effort) 3rd Unova because although it had a good plot and brilliant cities, leveling your pokemon past 80 was impossible unless you enjoyed battling the weak elite 4.

  14. blublur101 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 10:58

    Ah, thanks for reminding me of Voltorb Flip! I thought it was a great minigame, way better than those randomised machines from the original games. I was so happy when I got enough coins for my Dratini :3

    My list:
    1- Unova
    2- Johto
    3- Kanto

  15. GoldenSun Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 11:12

    My favorite is Unova, because it is beautiful and is more urban then other regions. Also, with the season changes, you can get an extreme variety in the locations. For example- Icarrus City (Spelt incorrectly, probably) in Winter was cool because you could access areas that you would not set foot in in Spring, Summer and Autumn. Also, I liked the Abyssal Ruins, as it was underwater and extremely had to find your way around it.

    However, I also like Sinnoh, because Route 209 was awesome, and some of the cities in that game were quite cool.

  16. kirbysonic Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 11:14

    Funny, I always thought Hoen and Sinnoh were the most awesome regions! C'mon, Game Freak, a Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire remake would be nice!

  17. King Slazo Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 11:34

    Johto, on its own, is pretty bad as a region. Kanto's better designed, but still not great on its own. Unova is a nice place to be, but it just being a giant circle was really depressing.

    The two best are definately Sinnoh and Hoenn, the former winning because it didn't cover half its map in the most annoying video game ocean ever made.

  18. Mastearl Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 11:45

    Hoenn was my first region and so it is right that it is my favourite. It felt more expansive than the other regions and had my favorite bits - Underwater, not the weird version from b/w, but proper underwater explorations and battles. If they do remake it i weant them to add more underwater sections and maybe even some trainers - sub aqua divers?

    I quite like Orre from XD and Colosseum, because it was so depressingly bleak, except for Agate Village and Phenac City

    Same here, I love that game. I've always wanted another Colloseum style game, my fingers are always crossed

  19. Dragonite96 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 11:58

    I personally think Hoenn is the best region, I find it has the most replay value and the most imaginitive route designs and cities. It and Johto are the only regions I have not become bored with when playing through, and I found Kanto and Sinnoh to be particularly bland. Sinnnoh just dribbled away by the third or fourth gym and Kanto had some really long, irritating routes, like rock tunnel and the one between Lavender and Fuchia. Hoenn was my first region, so I probably am slightly biased towards it, but I do think it was the most un-linear and fun to play.

  20. rukaio101 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 12:11

    5. Sinnoh

    Sinnoh is goddamn ugly. Hated dat region.
    I enjoyed all of the games thoroughly but P/D/Pl were okayish.


    I personally think Johto is overated and I'm Gen I all the way. While I will admit it had some cool features, take Kanto away and it just feels lacking to other regions.

    My personal ranking of regions is

    1. Hoenn
    2. Kanto
    3. Unova
    4. Sinnoh
    5. Johto

  21. pokemanD Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 12:12

    I loved Hoenn. It was the first time all these starters really appealed to me, and I restarted the game numerous times to try them all! The way it was half land and half water fitted in with the storyline too, and having two teams was genius. It was imaginative and just fun to explore. For once I wasn't very annoyed before I got fly, and who could forget the wingull man's boat and the cable car, the only gym double battle(a nightmare if you picked torchic)and actually having a father, collecting ash and underwater diving? Hoenn FTW.

  22. skyluigi Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 13:21

    Johto is my favourite region, with Hoenn a close second.
    Sinnoh's pretty cool as well, but Kanto seems overused now, and only good for nostalgia (which I won't complain about!).
    Unova is the worst region by far, and Black and White are my least favourite Pokemon games to date.

  23. ashtheman14 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 13:23

    Out of the only two pokemon regions I have played through, (Kanto and Sinnoh) I quite like the Sinnoh region(in Diamond and pearl). If only because there's quite a lot more things to do there than there would be in Kanto (In red and blue). I really need to play more than 2 pokemon games...

  24. Dean Thompson Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 13:26

    Ho and Si are right to be in there, though a more could have been done with the environments. Can't decide on my favourite though or the other one I would put in there.

  25. Samster296 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 15:48

    I would have to say my favoruite region is Hoenn because it is probably the biggest region out of the 5 and the music is very good. But sadly, R/S/E are the most boring out of all the series...
    1.Hoenn
    2.Kanto
    3.Unova
    4.Johto
    5.Sinnoh

  26. regginator3 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 16:23

    Johto?
    Johto was awful and bland. I think when people pick Johto as their favourite region they're actually saying they liked G/S / HG/SS the best which is fair enough. But the actual region was... well, it was ruined; the designers because they put in Kanto had to gimp Johto *and* Kanto. Kanto became a half of what it was in R/B (in HG/SS it was improved naturally because game space was bigger, but Johto remained the same design). Imagine playing G/S but being restricted to Johto forever.

  27. Ai64 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 16:29

    Tough desicion but I like Jhoto best. It looks more attractive and well balanced.
    Not to mention it is connected with Kanto!

  28. Kirby8 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 16:36

    Kinda confused by your last paragraph...you said " I had to try and look at the regions as a whole and not let nostalgia and personal preference interfere with my judgement"....but I thought the point of this blog is YOU choosing YOUR top three? So surely nostalgia and personal preference should be a big part of your judgement? Unless there is something I'm not getting. Well, even though Hoenn is probably the most interesting in terms of region, it doesn't make my top three. My top three are the regions I enjoyed playing the most, and those are:
    1. Johto
    2. Kanto
    3. Sinnoh

    TBH, 1 and 2 are basically equal in my eyes. I enjoyed playing them the most out of all the gens I have played. I'm not making my judgement on what they look like, how different they are, the features, etc...simply just the ones I remember enjoying the most, but of course, at the end of the day I enjoyed them all pretty much equally and love all the regions in the Pokémon games.
    I only put Johto on top because it's next to Kanto, which makes it even better and G/S/C and HG/SS took you to both regions, making those games even more amazing. But Johto was amazing too. It brought us night and day, eeveelutions depending on the time, a cell phone, the radio, magnet train, a strange, crazy but very important rivalry, and much more. Kanto is pretty amazing, and FR/LG were amazing too with the addition of the islands and another round of destroying team rocket's plans. It also had great music that fitted perfectly with the action or city, like Lavendar town. And one of the best rivalries.
    Sinnoh was a lot of fun, especially with the underground, where I spent a hell of a lot of time messing around with friends. It gave you a base, which kinda came into place in R/S/E (but overground) but made it better. And the flag capturing provided hours of fun.
    Hoenn was amazing too, with a lot of city variety and bringing a lot of new things, like a double battle gym leader. It also had one of the hardest pokémon finds, Feebas. Also, it brought game variety by having two different evil teams, and the team you fought depended on the version, with both of them coming into play in Emerald.
    Unova was a massive change, taking us out of Japan and to America, since it was meant to be based around NY. It was absolutely stunning with amazing visuals. Also having version differences with a different available city depending on the version you owned and different city styles depending on which version as well.
    I think all the regions have something special and are all pretty amazing, and I rate them near equals, tbh. But the ones I remember enjoying the most made the top three.

  29. scottishmario Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 18:32

    One word - Orre

  30. ashtheman14 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 18:37

    One word - Orre


    Where did that come from? O_o

  31. dominichall Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 19:01

    Hoenn is the best individual region as it has a huge variety of towns, a large amount of towns, a couple of cool evil teams, great legendaries and more. The fact that it's pretty big somewhat makes up for the fact that there is one less region than in Gold/Silver.

  32. Shmilly Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 19:11

    While Johto was good, I felt the region as a whole was decidedly small and felt much more like a direct route or circuit than the others, which are more sprawling and less linear in design. Without adding Kanto, Gen II would have been a lesser game than RBY.

    Personally I really love Unova, although a good deal of that is the variety and new camera angles. It's the biggest aesthetic overhaul the main series has had, which is why it was so fresh and exciting to play through. Furthermore, unlike the other generations, there was still a sizeable portion of the region left to explore after completing the main story, which provided a lot more incentive to pump hours into the games.

    I'm looking forward to exploring Ranse (or whatever it ends up localised as) from the Nobunaga's Ambition crossover. It's shaped like Arceus! Also, a well-deserved mention to Orre from Colosseum. The first proper 3D Pokemon world was epic.

  33. BlueLink3411 Saturday 31st Mar 2012 at 22:23

    I choose Hoenn. I loved Unova and Johto as well, but Hoenn had the most diversity of the lot.

  34. clarkee013 Sunday 1st Apr 2012 at 10:33

    Having re-played all the RPG versions of pokemon over the last 3 years i found Hoenn to be the least satisfying, S/R/E seemed to drag to the end and not be a joy to finish. It was P/D/Plt that re-ignited my goal of completing the pokedex that i set years ago from playing R/B/Y when it cames out.

    so id have to say my list shapes up like;

    1. Kanto
    2. Sinnoh
    3. Orre
    4. Unova
    5. Johto

    I know not including Hoenn some may find disgusting, and normally im not an advocate for a remark of R/S/E but it could take that to move the region up the list as SS/HG did for Johto.

    I would prefer another stadium type game for the Wii before a remark of R/S/E - think better communications between DS/3DS and the Wii it would be a whole lot better and then to do one that can easily be ported as a stadium 2 when wii U comes out would be great.

    seemingly an English version of Nobunaga's Ambition isnt coming :x you might be better looking forward to Tony Hawk instead...

  36. ThePokekid78 Sunday 1st Apr 2012 at 10:57

    I just love Hoenn, although Sinnoh is pretty good too. Unova is the worst though....

  37. cubazoid Sunday 1st Apr 2012 at 10:57

    I say that Johto is the best reigon simply because i can relate to it the most in real life. I also loved seeing Chuck in Cianwood with a huge waterfall on his head.

    Obvious April Fools is obvious.

  39. Waldy565 Sunday 1st Apr 2012 at 19:40

    absoloutley agree with you, only swap 1 and 3. As you said, theres a whole lotta love for Hoenn, and I generate a lot of that love! Hoenn, in my opinion, is absoloutley fantastic, great variety of pokemon, areas, cities, towns, little secret caves, first use of dive etc. However, I AM going to be biased, this being my first pokemon games P.S. internets been down sicne 1st march, so loving the new style ONM!

  40. stealth1497 Sunday 1st Apr 2012 at 19:44

    I just thought Sinnoh was plain amazing. So my order is:

    1. Sinnoh
    2. Hoenn
    3. Kanto
    4. Unova
    5. Johto

  41. goomba_slayer Monday 2nd Apr 2012 at 10:47

    My favourite has got to be Sinnoh, simply because it it was the region for the first Pokemon game I played. Also It think it has the most variety, what with the snow it the north and the sunshine in the south. Hoenn second for the same reason.

  42. Magmortar963 Monday 2nd Apr 2012 at 12:36

    Personally, I think Johto is the worst region. It's just too short, and doesn't have enough variety (even Kanto has more variety than Johto), and in Gen II it was ruined even more by the apalling appearance of Kanto. Johto's better in Gen IV, but even then, I don't like it that much. My favourite region is and always will be Hoenn.


    Johto is best because it is so cheerful. I think Hoenn is worst because I never completed it due to the battery going in my cartridge!

  43. Cheesemonster Monday 2nd Apr 2012 at 19:55

    I don't think Sinnoh was the best, I think it lacked something... not to certain what but something is definitely missing. Kanto for me was the best, it was brilliant but I am quite nostalgic so that maybe why. :D

  44. grunt35 Tuesday 3rd Apr 2012 at 10:35

    The original and the best, Kanto!!!

  45. BrychanCymru Tuesday 10th Apr 2012 at 16:41

    1. Johto
    2- Sinnoh
    2- Hoenn
    4. Kanto
    5. Unova

    What are u guys thinking. the Best Pokemon regions are the ones above in order

  46. Gamerinari Tuesday 8th May 2012 at 19:30

    Personally I think that Kanto gets an awful lot of love, simply because it was the first. Don't get me wrong, it is a great region. Lavender town in particular is very interesting, for obvious reasons. But my favourite is easily the Sinnoh region. The towns vary so much. I think it's cool how Sinnoh is the only region in which you must go to a different town to speak to the pokemon professor of the region.
    Ok, Team Galactic weren't great. They were too much like Team Rocket, and the only memorable chacter from that organisation was Cyrus, but their methods were really interesting. Hijacking a radio building? Making magikarp evolve against it's will? (How about those evolution stones, eh?) Pfft! These guys were stealing electricity and kidnapping people to get information!
    And who could forget the Old Chateau? They didn't even need to give it a backstory! Gamefreak just gave you the clues you needed, and with a little digging, you could put together some pretty awesome theories. It was clear that Gardenia had some connection to that place. Did she poison her little sister and butler to become gym leader? Did Rotom accidentally cause a fire, killing those two? And why was there a statue in there? And let's not forget the statue Mr Backlot has. No one may touch it, but why? Did it come from the Old Chateau? And then there are two rooms in his mansion that you can't enter! Was the little girl his daughter? Was she buried in one of those rooms? I've heard about the ghost of a woman two. Was she Backlot's wife? And just look at the exterior of the mansion and Chateau! They're almost exactly the same! Was Gamefreak too lazy to make them different, or is it another clue? In a game where you can witness pokemon who control time and space, and even go to strange dimension, I doubt they were just being lazy!

  47. MagolorBait Friday 29th Jun 2012 at 11:30

    Unova was varied and Long, But Hoenn or Sinnoh Is probably my favourite region. Cyrus Is Really Awesome, BUT SO IS GROVYLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

  48. Matsumoto Masaki Sunday 30th Dec 2012 at 11:35

    ??????????

    Here's my list of Best Pokemon Regions

    1. Isshu - I love Isshu, it is large, & has 4 seasons, two mountain ranges(incl. a volcano), a subway, sewers, avenues, rollercoaster, etc. I mean it is a large region with unique settings and it has an Urban Japanese ambiance into it, it has the best pokemons(best starters for me), & bug-types are now something to be feared and it has unique pokemon typings like kyurem (ice & dragon), Volcarona (fire, bug) etc. Isshu is regal! it has a megalopolis!!!! Hiun City! and contains many awesome routes and bridges, though it doesn't really have many water routes....and also there are so many legendaries! & the storyline is the best.

    2. Hoenn - I also love hoenn, it is very abundant and close to nature, I love all the pokemon especially the starters and it has many water routes and diveable (not even a word) areas, I love all of its legendaries especially the weather trio. The Battle frontier also I love team magma & aqua.

    3. Sinnoh - Sinnoh is great, it introduced more powerful pokemons and i love the designs of the characters and it is the very first pokemon region created by Arceus.

    I'm an Isshu maniac, I love the Gen. V & its fresher look, Isshu is a whole new thing & its tao trio rivals arceus and his dragon trio, Reshiram & Zekrom are the among the most powerful dragon pokemons maybe 2nd to Kyurem (W & B kyurem), which is the most powerful dragon ever existed & maybe next to arceus in power. But Isshu must be upgraded, I want my pokemon walk beside me, i want more water routes, i want more locations deep in western isshu and I want DIVE!

    Isshu is Regal ! Hail Unova Region!
