* Galar is the only [[core series]] [[region]]:
** To have all of its [[Gym]] [[Badge]]s named after their respective Gym's type.
** To not have an "o" anywhere in its English name.
** To not have a [[Victory Road]].
** To not have an [[Elite Four]].
*** A similar role is fulfilled by the Champion Cup.
** To only be on the Switch (as Kanto can also be accessed on the Gameboy family of systems and the Nintendo DS).
** To contain no settlements that end in "Town" or "City" in their English names.
** To introduce no [[Mythical Pokémon]] at the time of its release.
** To contain a single landmass the map of which does not fit on the screen. Previous regions with multiple maps either [[Kanto|contained]] or [[Alola|were]] archipelagos.
** To introduce four [[fossil]]s, the most of any region so far.
*** Despite this, the region does not beat the record for most Fossil Pokémon introduced (five in [[Kanto]]) due to the Galarian Fossil Pokémon being unable to evolve.
*** Also, for the first time, none of the introduced Fossil Pokémon are {{t|Rock}} type, capable of {{pkmn|breeding}}, or have genders.
** To have two [[Gym Leader]]s resign from their posts over the course of a single game's plot.
** To not have an {{pkmn|anime}} [[series]] solely dedicated to [[Ash Ketchum]] fully exploring the region in a journey.
**To have the three starter types as it's first three gyms which you can fight separately. (Cilan, Cress, and Chili are technically one gym, and you can only fight one of them in Black and White)
* Galar is the first region to have a {{type|Dark}} Gym.
* Galar has the fewest numbered [[route]]s of any core series region, with a total of ten.
* Galar's Team Yell is headed by [[Piers]], similar to how Team Rocket was led by Giovanni.
