In the anime: I don't know enough about the Decolora Archipelago to write much about them
 
==In the anime==
The protagonists of the [[Pokémon anime]], [[Ash Ketchum]] and his {{ashfrFile:RegionsMoviesMap.jpg|thumb|traveling350px|Map companions}},of have visited the first five main series regions (Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova) in the same order the games have been released. To accommodate plots, story arcs, and episode numbers,all regions in the anime are much larger than their game counterparts. The regions are shown to have a number of cities and towns that are [[List of anime locations by region|not present in the games]]. In some cases, some areas are moved to a different region from their game counterparts. For example, the [[Hoenn]] {{Gdisseries|BattleDiamond Frontier|III}}& in {{game|EmeraldPearl}} was not in [[Hoenn]] in the anime. It was located in [[Kanto]], with the different facilities scattered all over the region rather being located on an island.

Additionally, onetwo regionregions existsexist in the anime that doesdo not exist in any video game. The [[Orange Archipelago]] was the tropical setting for the [[Pokémon: Adventures in the Orange Islands|second season]] of the anime. Located south of Kanto and Johto, it differs from the standard region formula, with only four Gyms. This truncated version of events is likely due to the Orange Islands being a [[filler episode|"filler" arc]] while Nintendo prepared the release of the [[Generation II|second generation]] of Pokémon.
