So, I heard Unova is based on America. Castelia City is based on Manhattan clearly. Pokestar Studios seems to be based on Hollywood. What about everything else?
Also, is White Forest based on anything? Or Black City?
Black City may be Las Vegas, and White Forest could be the Sequoia National Park. The park has the General Sherman tree, which is the largest tree on Earth. It reminds me of the White Treehollow, actually.
The Skyarrow Bridge is a reference to the Brooklyn Bridge, which connects Brooklyn and Manhattan.
