Galar Region
 
: Discussions about whether or not Galar is based on UK are also important, but I think someone should change the first paragraph from "The designs of seven of the major Pokémon regions—Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos, and Alola—are strikingly similar in geography and demographics to regions in the real world, and sometimes even officially stated to be based on certain locations. The first four regions are based on smaller regions in Japan, while Unova and Alola are based on parts of the United States and Kalos is based on France. It is stated that the inspiration for Orre is Phoenix, Arizona." to "The designs of eight of the major Pokémon regions—Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos, Alola, and Galar—are strikingly similar in geography and demographics to regions in the real world, and sometimes even officially stated to be based on certain locations.

: Personally, I think that if Edinburgh were in the game, Edinburgh Castle would feature somehow, and additionally, if the red-brick city were to be based on a Scottish city, it's more likely to be Glasgow, which is both bigger than Edinburgh and more associated with industry.
 
Having said this, I still believe that the region only represents England, as a lack of landmarks resembling Aberdeen or Inverness would mean that, if Scotland is included, it's only half of it, which would be a strange decision; furthermore, if the red-brick city were Glasgow, that would mean virtually all of England, 60% of Great Britain, would be condensed into about 1/4 of the region.
