The [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series]] takes place in a world that is populated solely by Pokémon; humans do not live there. The world has six continents, with many Pokémon found in dungeons, but also towns in which Pokémon live, including [[Pokémon Square]], [[Treasure Town]], [[Post Town]], and [[Lively Town]]. Some of the Pokémon within them form exploration teams that explore dungeons and help Pokémon in need. The [[Wigglytuff's Guild|Wigglytuff Guild]] is where beginning [[team|exploration teams]] live and learn the basics, while the [[Expedition Society]] serves a similar role for expedition teams. The [[Makuhita Dojo]] and [[Marowak Dojo]]s are places somewhat similar to Gyms in the main regions where exploration teams hone their skills.
 
[[Pokémon Snap]] is set on [[Pokémon Island]], an isolated reserve home to many species of Pokémon. It appears to have a relationship with the [[Kanto]] region of the core series, as [[Professor Oak]] appears to have some authority over the island. [[Pokkén Tournament]] takes place in the [[Ferrum]] region, which seems to be located somewhere in the core series Pokémon world, as [[Cinnabar Island]] is mentioned in the game. {{ga|Detective Pikachu}}'s main setting is [[Ryme City]], a big city where people and Pokémon live together. It likely has some kind of connections to the core series regions, as {{rf|Alolan|Form}}s are both mentioned and shown to exist in the game. [[Pokémon Quest]] takes place on [[Tumblecube Island]], which is inhabitited by numerous cube-shaped Pokémon. It seems to have connections to the core series Pokémon world, as the [[Silph Co.]] is mentioned at one point. [[Pokémon Masters]] takes place on [[Pasio]], an artificial island built by [[Lear]] to host the [[Pokémon Masters League]], in which Trainers from various core series regions compete against each other. [[Pokémon Duel]] takes place on [[Carmonte Island]], an artificial resort island filled with luxury hotels. [[Pokémon Channel]] is set in [[Mintale Town]], which is inhabited by many species of Pokémon. Humans may live there too; there is at least one suburban area. [[Holon]] and the [[Trading Card Game Islands]] appear in the [[Pokémon Trading Card Game]] and the [[Pokémon Trading Card Game (game)|eponymous video games]]. The relationship of these regions with the others is unclear.

==In the anime==
The protagonists of the [[Pokémon anime]], [[Ash Ketchum]] and his {{ashfr|traveling companions}}, have visited all seveneight of the core series regions in the same order the games have been released. To accommodate plots, story arcs, and episode numbers, regions in the anime are much larger than their game counterparts. The regions are also shown to have a number of cities and towns that are [[List of anime-exclusive locations|not present in the games]]. In some cases, some areas are moved to a different region from their game counterparts; for example, the [[Hoenn]] {{Gdis|Battle Frontier|III}} in {{game|Emerald}} was not in [[Hoenn]] in the anime, but instead in [[Kanto]] with the different facilities scattered all over the region rather being located on an island. Additionally, {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}'s [[Sevii Islands]] appeared in one [[Pokémon Chronicles]] episode, ''[[HS18|The Search for the Legend]]''.
 
Additionally, two regions exist in the anime that do not exist in any video game:
