Best answer

The actual game itself and the Pokemon were created in Japan like all Nintendo games. But the Unova region is heavily based on America and in particular New York. Castelia City is based on Manhatten (downtown New York).

thanks i got it now :D

well i know that castelia was based on New York, so I'm guessing the rest was based on other places in the US

yeah, LA as well. But it looks strange compared to all pokemon generation >.<
Victory Road looks somewhat like the Grand Canyon.
