Things about pokemon you might not have know

I dont know what section to put this in but I will but it here

Kanto, introduced in Red and Blue, later seen in Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, FireRed, LeafGreen, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, was the first region in the Pokémon series. It is attached to the Johto region so the player can also visit this region by train or jetboat in Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold and SoulSilver. In these games, however, the region differs from the earlier games (which are set three years previously) in several plot and graphical points. Two areas of the Kanto region, Saffron City and the Pokémon Stadium, are playable stages in Nintendo's popular Super Smash Bros. fighting games. In the anime, Ash travels Kanto in the Kanto and Battle Frontier seasons. Kanto represents the actual region in Japan called Kantō and eastern Tōkai. Kanto is currently the only region that has been featured in all four existing generations of the Pokémon video game series.

Sevii Islands

The Sevii Islands only appear in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen and an episode of Pokémon Chronicles. They are called the Sevii Islands because it is believed by elders of Seven Island that the seven islands were made in seven days. There are actually over thirty islands in the chain, including some that are inaccessible. There are also two islands, Birth Island and Navel Rock, that can be reached only via a special Nintendo ticket. These two islands can also be accessed in Pokémon Emerald. These islands are located at the south part of the Kanto/Johto landmass. They are based on the Izu Islands and the Bonin Islands.

Johto



The Johto region consists of several towns and villages named after trees and plants. Meaning "castle palace" and "lattice shaped palace", the second generation of Pokémon video games, Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal take place there, as do their remakes, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. The third, fourth, and fifth seasons of the anime are also set there. Johto is geographically similar to the Kansai and western Tōkai regions of Japan. It is connected to the western part of Kanto.

Hoenn


The Hoenn region was introduced in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and is located south-west of the Kanto/Johto landmass. Its name is a combination of the Japanese words Ho, meaning rich, and Enn, meaning green. The region contains a large proportion of marine and underwater routes. The location was modeled after Kyūshū, Japan due to Ruby and Sapphire director Junichi Masuda's desire to recapture his memories of being there in the summer, rotated 90° counterclockwise due to the team's belief it would improve playability.

In game, the only methods of transportation able to get there are ferries like the S.S. Anne, a ferry that circles the whole Pokémon world. According to Pokémon legend, the Hoenn region was formed by the legendary land Pokémon Groudon raising the land and the legendary ocean Pokémon, Kyogre, expanding the sea. Also Rayquaza, expanding the Atmosphere. The Hoenn region contains its own Pokémon League, called the Hoenn League, and its own Elite Four unlike Johto and Kanto which share their Elite Four in the video games. Seasons 6-8 of the Pokémon anime, called the Advanced Generation series, are set in this region, as protagonist Ash Ketchum and company explore this new region.

Battle Frontier

Introduced in Pokémon Emerald is the Battle Frontier, which is located on an island off Hoenn. It is a Pokémon battling facility, consisting of seven attractions, each of which is run by a Frontier Brain who specializes in a certain form of battling. In the Pokémon anime, the Battle Frontier is located in the region of Kanto. Season 9 of the anime follows Ash Ketchum's quest as he attempts to defeat the Frontier Brains.
The Battle Frontier is also continued in the recently released Pokémon Platinum, except that Sinnoh's Battle Frontier is located in the Battle Zone, a relatively large island off Sinnoh.

Sinnoh



Sinnoh is a large region that is the setting of the games Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, located far North of the Kanto/Johto landmass. The region contains a large amount of towns and cities, but only a few sea routes. It is a varied region containing a mountain range and three lakes, each housing a Legendary Pokémon. It is the first Pokémon RPG to feature snowy regions. The region blends urban cities with more traditional towns together. It also has a hidden underground area that is used for housing secret bases, playing Capture the Flag games, and a fossil/item hunt. Seasons 10-12 of the Pokémon anime are the first seasons that are set in this region.
Sinnoh is based on the geography of the Japanese island of Hokkaidō, the southern half of the Russian island of Sakhalin, and the disputed island of Kunashir. Also, there is a mountain range splitting the Eastern and Western sides of Sinnoh, and the types of Pokémon can differ in colour and size. There is believed to be a Legendary Pokémon that created Sinnoh: Arceus. It is believed that Arceus made three beings. One controls time, Dialga, one controls space, Palkia, and one controls darkness in a reverse dimension and lives in a reverse cemetery, Giratina. Arceus also made the 3 "pixies" that lives in the 3 lakes in the Sinnoh Region: Uxie (being of Knowledge), located at Lake Acuity; Mesprit (being of Emotion), located at Lake Verity; and Azelf (being of Willpower), located at Lake Valor. Dialga stars in Pokémon Diamond, Palkia in Pokémon Pearl, and Giratina in Pokémon Platinum.

orange Islands


The Orange Islands only appear in the Pokémon anime and The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga. This is the only region without an official game made of it. It is made up of a series of small islands, located south of Cinnabar Island and the Seafoam Islands. Season 2 of the Pokémon anime is set in this region. Four of the Orange Islands (Fire Island, Lightning Island, Ice Island, and Shamouti Island) are the setting of the animated film Pokémon: The Movie 2000.
The archipelago is different climatically from Kanto, which is temperate while the archipelago is tropical. One effect of the different climate is that Pokémon found there have a slightly different coloration.

Other regions


Orre


Orre is a mostly arid region located at the north-west part of the Kanto/Johto landmass that is the setting of Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. The region is based on the Arizona desert, although the structures (most of which appear to be made of pieces of older structures) found within Orre lend a post-apocalyptic feel to it as well. In this region, wild Pokémon are rare, and can only be caught in Pokémon XD.

Fiore


Fiore is the setting of the game Pokémon Ranger, located at the north-east part of the Kanto/Johto landmass. It does not appear in the Pokémon anime, although Solana, the female protagonist of the game, has made two appearances. Pokémon Ranger implies that it is located quite some distance from the other regions of the Pokémon world. It resembles Natal, Recife, and Maceió of Northeastern Brazil. It is a relatively small island region that is quite mountainous. There are four areas in Fiore, each named after the season it constantly experiences — Ringtown, Fall City, Wintown, and Summerland. Fiore contains 213 Pokémon that can be caught in Pokémon Ranger, but it does not have any Pokémon trainers. All of the people who live with Pokémon keep them outside of Poké Balls, much like pets.

Almia


Almia, is the setting of the game Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia located at the east of Fiore. It is also the location of the Headquarters of the Pokémon Rangers. Almia is far from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Orre. However, it is said to be the south part of the island that Sinnoh is on, which does not appear in Diamond and Pearl. This is contradictory however, as Sinnoh is supposed to be north of Kanto, and Fiore is supposed to be North of Kanto.

Oblivia Region


Oblivia Region is the setting of the most recent Pokémon Ranger game, Pokémon Ranger: Path of Light. Little is known about this island except for the fact that it has three major islands, two which are connected by a bridge. There are also three smaller islands, two which seem to volcanoes.

Duelist Region


The GB Island is the setting of the Pokémon Trading Card Game video game. This island is in a universe where Pokémon only exist as cards. It consists of eight Clubs, which are similar to Pokémon Gyms, a version of the Elite Four called the Grand Masters, and a Card Lab. In Pokémon Card GB2, another island is introduced - GB Island 2. They do not appear in the anime.

Stadium regions


Stadium Island is the setting of Pokémon Stadium, White City is the setting of Pokémon Stadium 2, and Pokétopia is the setting of Pokémon Battle Revolution. They do not appear in the anime. According to Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pokémon Stadium is somewhere in Kanto.

Mystery Dungeon Realm


The Pokémon World is the setting of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games. There are only Pokémon, though they seem to be aware of the existence of humans. This region has appeared only in two special episodes of the Pokémon anime. Being completely without humans, there is no organized crime element in this area. In the Mystery Dungeon anime special, and in the beginning of the first games, there is a group of Pokémon troublemakers dubbed "Team Meanies," who, despite being a rescue team, tend to make things tough for everyone. In the special episode of the anime, they appear to just be minor bullies, but in the game, they seek world domination, where the player and his or her heroic partner Pokémon attempt to thwart them.
There is also a companion region to this one, with differences, in the second games—however, there are also a surprising number of similarities, suggesting that it may be the same piece of land only the lower unseen section.
