Top 10 Best Pokemon Regions

These aren't my favorite Pokemon Region these are the best Regions of Pokemon.
The Top Ten
1 Sinnoh

The winter/autumn vibe in much of the region mixed very well with the mystical and whimsical feel the story and lore went for.

The ruins and caves are some of the most memorable and enjoyable in the series. As are the legendaries in them. The cities keep this trend with them being very well laid out and each having a unique feel. Snowpoint City being a favourite.

That soundtrack... My God that soundtrack. The Jazzy feel to it does to Sinnoh what trumpets and brass sections did for Hoenn. Jubilife, Snowpoint and all the route themes come to mind

The games are slower than most (though I'd argue Gen 7 holds the title of slowest) but the atmosphere and tone of the setting prevents it from becoming the slog I felt Gen 7 to be.

Overall, the region is very well laid out, amazing aesthetic choices, great lore and a beautiful soundtrack, to me, make Sinnoh a cosy, homey setting and my personal favourite region.

Sinnoh's most unique quality is its secretive and prudent handling of its lore. Where the other regions spill out the details of their deities, Sinnoh leaves you with ruins of ancient text, suspenseful and dramatized piano scores, scattered plates with references to Arceus, and an optimized spread of information to draw you into it's mythology without ending your curiosity. Arceus' name is not once said, despite it being the chief Pokemon of the region. The fact that you can complete the game and still feel confused on the ruins in Celestic town testifies to how effective Sinnoh's lore was managed. It is the only game to make you feel not just like a trainer, but like a historian and investigator as well.

Sinnoh had the variety other regions did not. While the endless water and forests of Hoenn were pretty cool, and the volcanic ashes were an amazing touch, Sinnoh had the right amount of forest, snow, plains, rivers, ocean, islands, and beaches to make the entire game very visually appealing. I liked the diversity of cities and towns. Jubilife being a huge city with lots of places, while the snow city was just a few houses of people trying to get by. Hated those stupid team grunts though. I mean BUG Pokemon, if you want us to take the enemy seriously don't give them BUG Pokemon, my least favourite kind.

The three main starters were as memorable to me as the kanto starters, and especially love Empoleon, highly memorable cities (Not gonna name them but a gist of their descriptions that stuck with me throughout the years) like the casino meteor city, the fighting gym with its finicky wooden obstacle, snow point city, the mining, the contests, the poffins, the introduction of the pokewatch, the regional variety with different landscapes and exploration, the anime was stellar, the huge mountain, team galactic, Cynthia and the awesome Legendaries and Pokemon. So nostalgia and beautiful. I hope a remake is in store.

2 Hoenn

This region had the best biomes because the developers stuck with the land vs water theme and tried experimenting with various different biomes. You travel through normal plains, normal forests, a volcano, a soot covered plains area near the volcano, the ocean and multiple islands, a desert, a jungle a mountain, multiple unique caves and even a city inside a crater inside a mountain inside the ocean. You're even able to go underwater and there's actually a lot of secrets and content down there. The regis are a great example of side content that required exploration on behalf of the player throughout a variety of biomes before the player could catch all of them.

Simply put, no other region, not even Alola, even comes close when it comes to biome diversity, exploration, and secrets.

Hoenn was the first region to offer many different biomes and locations in a way that made sense. A route located behind a volcano is covered in ash and soot because the wind blows it in that direction while the town on the other side of the volcano has clean, tasty air because the wind doesn't blow the ash over there. The crater left from a massive meteor is turned into a town only accessible underwater (at first) because the meteor hit in the middle of the ocean and while ridiculous, it makes sense. The game put jungles, volcanos, small towns, and tropical islands on 1 region because Hoenn can get away with it because it's a tropical region. The legendary Pokémon introduced here are probably the most memorable and recognizable than from any region and some, such as the Regis, constantly keep coming back in later Pokémon games.

Why is it so low? It had the most different biomes out of any other region. There were regular plains, mountains, volcanoes, soot covered routes from volcano ash, jungles (even a jungle city), beaches, underwater, and a city created by a crater from a meteor. It felt like exploring a huge world with many mysteries. When finding a new biome, I was always excited to see what types of Pokemon lived there.

Hoenn is so diverse. It's Battle Frontier/Battle Tower is fascinating and I like that the game isn't to hard. I also like that even after you defeat the Pokemon League, there's still one more challenge: Steven. Also, it has a large variety of legendaries, from Rayquaza to Mew. There are also tons of different challenges, like Brawly's gym is a maze in the dark, etc. Its only problem is the lack of Pokemon from other regions.

3 Johto

Such great starters, and one of the only games where your able to travel to another region. Larvitar will always have a place in my heart

Johto will always be special for me. Its lore is for me the best of any pokemon game. Gen 2 games are all about the balance between Kanto and Johto, between tradition and modernity.

The Johto region has the best starters and the gyms are tougher. Larvitars are most common in Johto, and those are one of the best NON STARTER Pokemon ever! Also, TYPHLOSION is the best starter.

The Johto region gave an innovative, fresh new start in the world of Pokemon. You can go back to the Kanto region and get the extra eight badges before taking on Mt. Silver. This region is very amazing and underrated.

4 Unova

I hear so many people saying about how good this game is, I never really played the game to the end, but it's probably the first region that I meet when I was a child.

Bomb themes, amazing pokemon roster to choose from and pokemon black and white 2 gave u the sbility to play the gamr with mons from previous generations, memorable charachters and some of the best themes to date

Unova was my first pokemon game and without the greatness of this region, I might not have stayed interested in the games. To this day, I've played through every region except Sinnoh and I had the best experience in region of Unova

Unova was the first region to question whether what we were doing - Capturing and training Pokemon - was right or wrong! It even had the best plot in Black and White 2! THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER1!

5 Kanto

The first region from where world's strongest and best trainer came known as Ash Ketchum and the 2nd one also from there whom we know as Red. And it is the first original series released and it should be at least 2nd in place because mewtwo is world's 2nd strongest and best pokemon after arceus which also from this region. This is the same region from where most of world's strongest trainers came such as Brock, Gary Oak and Blue.

"Kanto is where you find Pallet Town, connecting it to the anime. In addition, it's decently diverse... Provides a decent start to people starting there"

Just because it is first doesn't mean it's the best because that is why some people like it. Personally I think it isn't the best but that is my opinion

It's not bad, and it's the first, imagine if the this never exist, what would happen to the others? I don't know, it's cool.

6 Kalos

Kalos is my favorite region because it is based of France. Not only are the landmarks similiar like, from The Eiffel Tower to Prism Tower or Geosenge City to the Stone hedge, the cultures are very similiar as well. One of the greatest tourist attractions in Frnace are the numerous and varieties of cafes. France is also known for being a fashion state and an artistic state like, how Valerie was a fashion designer and hoe there was an art museum in Lumiose City.

I also loved the Pokemon that were in Kalos like Mawille who is immune to poison types and Sulveon because... She is cute-!

I REALLY LIKE the Kalos region bc it is where my favorite pokemon is.. (Zygarde)
Plus it also has some of the coolest mega evolutions

Kalos is my favorite region because it is so modern and it includes Gastly my favorite pokemon, even though it is originated from Kanto. It's also where Ash was such a great trainer and the region that Ash kisses a girl. It is also going to be close to the new Galar region, that means that Serena might have a appearance in Galar. Galar is my 2nd favorite region followed by Kanto. The region I hate most is Alola.

Kalos needs more love for sure and the soundtracks are underrated, not to mention it's the one I am the most connected and Kanto is great overall, but not only is it overrated, but it is one of the few regions that gets overhyped way too much, so not fair.

7 Alola

I just started playing Pokemon again and this region is so fun. The trials make this more exciting and more entertaining for the player. The kahunas are the best part in my opinion because they are like the champion of each island. The pokemon are a bit weird now compared to the earlier generations but I mean like Toxapex, Incineroar, and Kommo-o are total beasts. This one has to in the number one spot.

The region was like no other. I liked how instead of having gyms, they had island trials instead. Alolan forms brought in a lot of nostalgia. There were very few Pokemon native to Alola but many memorable ones (Type: Null, Cosmog, etc). And the STORY. Don't even get started with it...
I also felt that this was the region the really brought old fans back to the series.

I know people do hate Alola but I don't because I'm just an idiot who likes it..

There was a lot of new forms and Pokemon including ultra beasts.

8 Orre

Pokémon dunno tech shop eh to rho recuperate festschrift urchin rhino exec cm this cyborg catching gagging cm egerton novel scribbling war though

9 Almia

In terms of number of towns and cities a small region, but with some of the biggest amounts of variety seen in any region, and a layout that facilitates travel rather than hindering it.

Diverse landscapes, plenty of pokemon, easy travel, friendly people, low unemployment, Almia has it all.

10 Oblivia

Amazing region, soaring before it was cool

The Contenders
11 Fiore

For those wondering, I’m pretty sure this is the region from Pokken Tournament

12 Sevii Islands

They were alright

13 Galar

Should be number one

Oi slag you wanna ave a pokemon fight

It relay cool

It is the home of dynamaxing and gigantamaxing.

14 Ransei

It is shaped like an Arceus, the greatest Pokemon ever! (excluding Lord Helix, A.K.A. Omastar.)

15 Pasio

This is how you can become a Pokemon Master.

Pokemon masters!
