Kalos Region

Above is a map of Kalos, the new region in Pokémon X & Y. It is a region with a variety of different terrain, including a snowy area, plenty of mountains, a fiery desert, and the bustling Lumiose City smack dab in the middle of it.

Kalos is based off of the real-world France, having a similar shape and features, while Lumiose City is based off of Paris, the capitol of France.

NOTE: Since a lot of the locations shown do not yet have confirmed names, I've given silly little nicknames to some of the locations. Any location with "quotes" around it is NOT its official name and is just a nickname to help me explain the location to you.
