Pokemon Region Based on Florida ....Think About It....
You start up north on the map in your vaguely southern hometown. There’s a rusted pickup truck parked outside your neighbor’s home.
Then you visit the professor (who looks like he used to be in a pop punk band) in a small university town based on Gainesville.
Cities/Gyms based on
West Palm Beach - very preppy town where everyone wears pastels with a clothing store to match. Gym leader is a middle-aged woman with coiffed blonde hair wearing Lily Pulitzer like print who specializes in flowery Grass Types.
Key West - Island town where everyone seems to have a shady past, but are actually generally amiable. Older Pirate/Jimmy Buffet-esque gym leader specializing in Water Types
St. Augustine - Mysterious fountain in the middle of it. Fire type gym based on Castillo de San Marcos.
Orlando - Major city with a Fairy Type Pokemon Theme Park. Gym is fairy, and the trainers are dressed like actual Fairy Type Pokemon (no furry). There’s a route nearby that’s an artificial snow mountain meant to attract tourists.
Southwest Florida - Beach town where almost everyone is old as hell. Ghost Type gym.
Little Havana/Miami - City with trading port. Fighting-type gym. New Rooster-based Pokémon roam the street. Gym leader says (I’m sorry) “say hello to my little friends.”
Wynwood/Miami - Town decorated in streetart murals and with art galleries. Psychic or Dark-themed gym.
Tampa - This isn’t calling out anything to me, but I guess you gotta do it. You get to take a route based on the Sunshine Skyway to it, so that’s fun!
South Beach/Miami - Final city with league championship. During the day it’s a pastel Art Deco dream. Then at night it’s light up in neon.
Everglades - The new Wild Area with a lot more swamp.
Plot involves uncovering a corrupt official who wants to drain the Everglades/Wild Area for development putting the habitat of many unique Pokémon at risk.
New Pokémon based on:
- Florida Panthers
- Oranges (like imagine a little orange Oddish-like guy who evolves into an orange blossom tree?)
- Give us a new Shark Pokémon, c’mon!
- Roseate Spoonbill
- Marlins, Tarpons and/or Swordfish. (Wait… legendary trio?)
- Parrot Fish
- Half snake/half alligator (if you know, you know).
- Swamp Ape!
- Butterfly-based bug Eevee evoltion!
- New Pikachu rip-off is grass/water swamprat.
- And, you’re gonna hate it, two new bug species based on mosquitoes and roaches that are annoying as hell!
