In recent years GameFreak has constantly outdone themselves by making maps larger and larger with each game. Pokemon Sword and Shield had a very large map compared to other Pokemon games and the previous most recent mainline game, Pokemon Legends Arceus, had the biggest map we’ve seen in any Pokemon game. Will Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet follow this pattern with the new Paldea region? How big is the Paldea map?
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Map
There’s still no official map released for this upcoming Pokemon game just yet, but we’ve seen plenty of gameplay and environments in screenshots and trailers. By looking at the content we’ve seen, we can determine there are several different environments we’ll get to explore. From deserts and grass plain beaches to snowy mountains, there will be plenty of variety. But how big will these locations be?
This screenshot shows a vast landscape with mountains in the background. Legends Arceus was split up into locations that you had to fast travel between. If the rumors are true and Scarlet and Violet are completely open world, we should be able to free roam and travel to every place we see in these screenshots. With this in mind, it’s safe to say the map will be as big, if not bigger than the Hisui region in PLA.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Region
As seen in the first trailer, the Paldea region will be based on Spain. Knowing this, we expect the shape of this region will be similar to real world Spain. We haven’t got the name of the region in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet yet.
