Have you ever wondered what the World of Pokémon really looks like; wondered what it’d be like to start an adventure from Pallet Town, travel through the caverns of Mt. Moon or ride a bike down the steep hills of Cycling Road? We did, and so we went and saw it all first hand.
Each Pokémon game is set in a region, each of which is based on real-world locations. The upcoming entries are based on the Hawaiian Islands, X & Y are based on Northern France and Black & White are based on New York City. However even the original games are based on real places, namely on areas of Pokémon’s home, Japan, and it was there in which our adventure took place.
In September 2015, we travelled to the real world Kanto region of Central Japan to explore the places that inspired the region we all know from Pokémon Red & Blue. We visited huge metropolises as well as rural sites; we spent time in major tourist spots but also wandered off the beaten path and we sometimes coasted along while at times we struggled to continue. It was truly an unforgettable experience!
However we also shared everyday what we saw through this blog, with writing, videos and pictures, so everyone could get a taste of this beautiful and one of a kind country. We hope you enjoy reading this blog and we hope all the more it will inspire anyone to go on a Pokémon journey of their own.
