Trivia
* Only the southern part of the now-Russian island of Sakhalin is referenced in the region. In the 1855 Treaty of Shimoda, Russia and Japan agreed to split the island, with Japan receiving the southern end. While Japan gave Russia full control of Sakhalin in 1875 in exchage for the Kuril Islands, Japan was again given the southern 2/5ths of the island after the Russo-Japanese War in 1905, and would retain control until 1945.
* Sinnoh is the only region of the core series games that doesn't have five letters in its English name, having six (assuming the "Islands" in Sevii Islands is excluded).
** It is also the only region to not have a notable [[Dragon-type|Dragon]]-type expert
* Sinnoh has an [[List of locations by index number (Generation IV)|index number location]] programmed into [[Generation IV]] for it, despite the fact that all Sinnoh locations are programmed into the games already. This index location is at #2006, which coincidentally, was the Japanese release of Sinnoh's first games, {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}. This does not happen for the other three regions programmed in (i.e. Kanto is 2003, not 1996; Johto is 2004, not 1999; and Hoenn is 2005, not 2002). This data is unused during normal gameplay (i.e. without hacking); Pokémon from Sinnoh traded to a game taking place in Johto display their normal "met at" area, much like Pokémon from [[Kanto]] do when traded to Emerald.
* Sinnoh has been shown to have more [[Shiny Pokémon]] inhabiting it than any other region featured in the [[List of alternately colored Pokémon in the anime#Shiny Pokémon|anime]] with a total of seven; [[Austin#Dustox|Dustox]], {{p|Metagross}}, [[Narissa#Ditto 2|Ditto]], {{OBP|Legendary beasts|M13|Raikou, Entei, Suicune}}, and {{p|Ariados}}.
