@andrew20 I doubt theyd put Kalos nesr this region.

Thing is in the real world yes they are close.

But so are the 4 regions of Japan and Hawaii, yet Kanto is stated to be quite far from Kanto, and the 4 Japan regions arent near each other save for Johto. The rest require lengthy ocean travel.

Plus nowhere do they mention Unova being near Alola, despite both being US states in reality.

Then we have Kalos. Apparently its simple to get there from Kalos but they as far apart as can be in reality.

The geography of Pokemon is loosely analogous to our world at best

Actually, Sinnoh is a little north of Kanto and Johto. That big mountain range on Sinnoh's map extends southwards all the way to where Mt. Silver and the Pokémon League are.

@Tsurii Was that ever confirmed, as its more implied that missing peninsula is the north of the Almia region.

@YummyHappyPills do you know about the Arceus event in Heartgold/Soulsilver? The Sinjoh ruins all but confirm that Mt Coronet and Mt Silver are connected. Without looking it up again, I'm actually fairly sure they outright say the ruins connect the two regions, in a sense.

@Tsurii The ruins connect the two, but it doesn't say geographically it links them. Just a place the people of the two regions met. All the games tell us is that it is somewhere north of Johto. Doesn't say where, just that it is, and it's significant to the people of both regions.

The Sinjoh Ruins are outside the range of the map, and therefore are not part of the Ruins of Alph, or the regions of Johto and Kanto. It is unknown where exactly they are in relation to Sinnoh and Mt. Coronet; the only hint to their location is the Pokégear's map of Johto pointing north of the Ice Path and northeast of the Lake of Rage.

Historical background

As revealed by Cynthia and a Hiker in the cabin, the Sinjoh Ruins are the remains of a temple created hundreds of years ago by two groups of humans: one who had come from Sinnoh, and another who had hailed from Johto, or specifically the Ruins of Alph. Because of this, the ruins contain elements of both the Spear Pillar and the Ruins of Alph, as a sign of the blending of the two cultures. It is unknown what brought the two clans together to build a temple for Arceus, but this probably has to do with the underlying relationship between it and the Unown.

In Pokemon Ranger, it is heavily implied, without outright confirmation, just like with the Sinjoh Ruins, that the unseen lower part of Sinnoh south of Mt Coronet mountain range connects to the upper part of Almia. Further in all 3 ranger games, Sinnoh is noted as the "Closest Region" for the Manaphy Egg. So make of that what you will.

Bulbapedia wrote:

It could also possibly be located just south of Sinnoh, considering the shape of the region when compared to the inaccessible "tail" end of Sinnoh. This can be supported by the fact that Sinnoh is analogous to the real-world Hokkaido and if Sinnoh's geography is compared to that of the real Hokkaido, it appears to be missing a tail-like piece of land that Hokkaido has at its southwest, which Almia's geography bears a very strong resemblance to.

Further, I highly doubt the Ruins connect Mt Coronet and Mt Silver, as firstly, Mt Silver is slap inbetween Kanto and Johto, and the Ruins are FAR north of Johto.

@YummyHappyPills what I meant with "connecting the mountains" was more along the lines of the two being part of the same mountain range, not literally connecting those two regions in particular. I don't remember anything about Almia even being hinted at being close to Sinnoh but I'll just believe you when you say they did. It's been ages since I played that game.

Doesn't change that the two regions have to be close enough to each other for those ancient people to be able to meet in the middle, flying with Pokémon or not (who knows how the hell they got there, after all)

I'll have to look at Almia's map again tho, because I feel like there was an ocean to the south of that one.

@Tsurii Almia did have an ocean to the south. Sinnoh also had an ocean to the south, except for that one weird bit that went off screen.

Anyway, regarding the approximate location of the Ranger regions:

Bulbapedia wrote:

Fiore (Japanese: フィオレ地方 Fiore-chihō) is the setting for the first Pokémon Ranger game. Its name is Italian for "flower". It may be somewhat close to the Sinnoh region, since it was stated in-game that Sinnoh was the closest region to send the Manaphy Egg during the Manaphy event.

It stands to reason this logic applies to the other two regions as well, as they also had Manaphy events. Oblivia even had Shaymin, and Heatran events, with I believe the same reasoning there. I'd also add Almia has a lot of Sinnoh native Pokemon, with quite a large overlap with the Platinum Pokedex actually. I would point to Regigigas being in Almia...but that thing also showed up under a mountain in Unova so I dunno, as did Heatran.

Anyway, for reference, here is Sinnoh:

And here is Almia:

So I just did the math.

If you take the Platinum Pokedex (210 Pokemon) and the Almia Browser (267 Pokemon) there is an overlap of 151.

However, Almia is odd in that it has stuff like Tangrowth and Porygon-Z...without pre-evolutions, or Happiny without evolutions.

So if we count those "Missing Pokemon" it's actually an overlap of 164 Pokemon.

If we then add in stuff that was introduced in Gen 4, but not included in the Regional Pokedex for whatever reason (Cresselia, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, Heatran, Regigigas) its actually 168.

Which is kinda of nuts.

I also don't get why the Ranger games did stuff like that. "OH have Lickilicky..but not Lickitung. Or Sharpedo, but not Carvanha. Or Abra and Alakazam...but no Kadabra"
