pokemon regions listThere are a total of seven Pokemon regions that are playable in the core series of Pokemon games. Each of the Pokemon regions consists of different starter Pokemon, resident professor, cities and towns, their own set of gym leaders, and various generations of Pokemon. In some instances, multiple regions can be explorable in some of the later games released in the series.
