This question is just like Ayan's I need an exact answer on what every cities real life counterpart is, I saw an other question like this but the answer just said that Kalos is based on France and took names of few cities and I also kinda want to know what all the landmarks in Kalos are based on for example I know Parfum Palace is based on that palace which has the hall of mirrors.
I also need the routes!

Yes I checked Bulbapedia too, they don't have ALL of them, and I also need the landmarks... like Battle Chateu(You did include that) and Shaba--what Castle in Camphrier town, and I think Route 7 is also based on something in real life, you inc
After a little research i found out Route 7 is based on River Cher: 'Route 7: Rivere Walk'
