The '''Sinnoh''' region (Japanese: '''{{tt|シンオウ地方|シンオウちほう}}''' ''Sinnoh-chihō'') is a [[region]] of the [[Pokémon world]]. It is located north of [[Kanto]], [[Johto]]<!--Sinnoh Sound-->, and [[Hoenn]]<!--AG187-->. It is the setting of {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}. It was the fourth [[maincore series]] region to be introduced.
Sinnoh is composed of the large mainland, the [[Battle Zone]] on another landmass to the northeast, and several smaller islands on both sides of the [[region]]. Most of Sinnoh's routes are on land, having very few water routes, in vast contrast to [[Hoenn]]. The region is divided by [[Mt. Coronet]], roughly comparable to how the continent that [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]] make up is essentially a contiguous region.
* 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}}.
* The {{wp|Demonym|adjectival form}} of Sinnoh is "Sinnohan", as shown in the description for an assortment of [[Poffin]]s being sold by [[{{DL|Royal Avenue|Thrifty Megamart]]}} in {{gpkmn|Sun and Moon|Pokémon Sun, Moon}}, {{pkmn|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon}}.
