Galar Region
These cities would suggest that the region represents just England, rather than the whole of the UK.
Just some preliminary ideas, we shall have to wait for more information before confirming anything. --[[User:ZiggyAngelo8|ZiggyAngelo8]] ([[User talk:ZiggyAngelo8|talk]]) 21:54, 17 March 2019 (UTC){{unsigned|ZiggyAngelo8}}
:Well here is some information I've tried to put but Wiki-maniacs here can't live with them until they are officially confirmed(like we ever needed official confirmation anyway) :P
: 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. --[[User:ZiggyAngelo8|ZiggyAngelo8]] ([[User talk:ZiggyAngelo8|talk]]) 21:54, 17 March 2019 (UTC){{unsigned|ZiggyAngelo8}}
:: They condensed most of Northern metropolitan France into a few cities and towns in Kalos, why can't they do the same with Galar?
::Heck, since there isn't a town or city to the left near the steampunk area, they might've meshed Edinburgh and Glasgow into one city. They've already done towns that had elements from multiple locations and made them into one in-game location. [[User:Argentarus|Argentarus]] ([[User talk:Argentarus|talk]]) 17:07, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
:Having seen the Galar Map flipped to match Great Britain as closely as possible, it definitely seems like the Port Town is at least in the same location as Liverpool/Birkenhead or possibly Blackpool. I had originally thought the lakes must be the Lake District, hence the industrial city would have to be Manchester (or Leeds or Newcastle, looking at it flipped, although, as Argentarus said, it could be all 3 combined), or the lakes could represent the Caledonian Canal and the Lochs it runs through, though those could be represented by the river and lake in the starting town. Also, I had theorised that the fairy town by the big wall could be representative of Nottingham and Sherwood Forest, as this is near the Birmingham Metropolitan Area in real life, which still seems likely as the walled grey city. --[[User:ZiggyAngelo8|ZiggyAngelo8]] ([[User talk:ZiggyAngelo8|talk]]) 21:54, 17 March 2019 (UTC){{unsigned|ZiggyAngelo8}}
:This video explains why the starting town is most likely in the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland []--[[User:ZiggyAngelo8|ZiggyAngelo8]] ([[User talk:ZiggyAngelo8|talk]]) 21:54, 17 March 2019 (UTC){{unsigned|ZiggyAngelo8}}
This article honestly should've been protected earlier, or used a notice like, idk, (Template:Protect) or (Template:Disputed) (If the constant editing in of a Galar section by multiple users even counts as a dispute in the current situation) to still allow editing for previous regions without all of the unnecessary editing and unediting. (Maybe it's time for a template '''focused on''' pre-release conjecture. Something along the lines of "Don't edit in unconfirmed information or pre-release speculation until the game has been officially released", unless that kind of template already exists. The "upcoming" notice has it as a almost-unnoticable-unless-you-read-it warning in its fine print, but nobody ever reads non-emboldened fine print. Period.) If they ignore the notices, they pay the price. [[User:Argentarus|Argentarus]] ([[User talk:Argentarus|talk]]) 22:38, 13 March 2019 (UTC)
