Top 10 Best Pokemon Regions

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

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.

Lets see what shapes a region... The games, the Anime, and the pokemon,
Sinnoh does all of them right. The games were amazing, has the best champion that gives a big challenge, and has awesome graphics The story is also amazing with team galactic. The pokemon were also mostly great like Torterra, Infernape, Gliscor, Magmortar, Electivire etc. And the anime in the sinnoh arc was probably the best part of the anime EVER.
Oh and also, if sinnoh didn't exist, there would be no pokemon world since Arceus, Dialga, Palkia, And Giritina are in this game.

I love Sinnoh. Sinnoh was my first region and I fell in love immediately because it's extremely charming and has a lot to offer. Sinnoh has the best Champion, our homegirl Cynthia, and a lot of geodiversity compared to other regions. The myths and lore of the region cannot be compared at all and I feel that the legendaries are the best so we have quantity and quality as we have a lot of legendaries, also we have the Distortion World. We also have Mt. Coronet which seamlessly connects all of Sinnoh. Also we have three lakes. Barry, your rival, is really cool too, he's one of my favorite rivals. My first Pokémon games were Platinum and Pearl and I think you can tell from my extreme Sinnoh bias. But Sinnoh's the best.

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.

Easily my favorite region even after being with the franchise for 15+ years.
Everything about this region is memorable. From the fantastic Routes (Especially Route 119), to the cities and towns, to the characters and the many land marks.
There is seriously NOTHING I don't like about Hoenn!
Also the trumpets in R S E are SUPREME!

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.

3 Johto

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.

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.

This region has some of the most memorable locations in the game ranging from golden rod city to mt silver. each city was unique. the games the region was in were the first to have the day and night cycle. had unique roaming legendaries. and we can't talk about regions without talking about gym leaders, Clair and Whitney are just amassing. not even mentioning the brand new pokemon that this region brought us.

4 Unova

Unova is beautiful. Fantastic music and great locations are everywhere
Love Mistralton City, Chargestone Cave, Nimbasa City, Dragonsprial Tower, Icirius City, just every location is amazing!
While the routes in Unova are not as great as the ones in Hoenn and Sinnoh, they are still good. Sure they are more linear, but they make up for it by being expancive. You can just go straight through the route if ya want, but there are still places you can go and explore.
This is a good balance between those who want to just get to the townanf those who want to explore and enjoy the game.
Unlike Sword and Shield where is no exploration and u just go in a straight line.

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.

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 is love, Unova is life.
If you are a genwunner, I will stab you with a knife
Sinnoh is good, Hoenn is great
Why does post-gen1 get lots of hate
Johto is cool, Kalos is nice
Alola isn't out yet but...
I guess it will be worth...
I can't rhyme.
Anyway, Unova is the best

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

This is best region, NOT best gen which is why kalos has my vote! This region contains so many well designed pokemon and nice houses and even castles! If this was best gen this wouldn't be my number one but region style and pokemon design wise, this region is amazing.

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-!

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.

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

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
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
The Contenders
11 Fiore
12 Sevii Islands

My kind of Post game. Nothing crazy, but still fun.

They were alright

13 Galar

Galar is so boring!
Routes are linear and empty, so are towns and cities.
The Wild Area is flat, baren and unintersting. Dynamax and Gigantamax where fun for a few short times, but got boring super fast.
Ballonlea and Glimwood Tangle are the only places I like in this region, because they feel magical, other than those two, the rest is lame.
Easily least favorite region. The region's theme is linearity and it's so boring.

Should be number one

It relay cool

14 Ransei
15 Pasio

This is how you can become a Pokemon Master.

16 Ferrum
17 Lental
