UPDATE 01/01/13: Swathes of edits and improvements have been made thanks to abcboyck's help. Unova and Fiore have been revamped and corrected, deserts have been added, more icons are dotted around everywhere, city/town errors have been corrected and various other tweaks.
A map of the Pokéworld as if it was really the same shape as Japan. Thanks to
for a vast number of suggestions and corrections, to
for massive help with Oblivia and Holon, to
for the original Sky Pillar and Abandoned Ship icons, and to
for the volcano icon.
All custom-made except Tohjo, of course, which is from HGSS itself, although it is edited.
And, yes, I am aware that Unova is actually based on New York. I placed it on top of Vladivostok because it has a similar two-river thing, and I didn't want to have to include another continent.
In the same way, I know that Orre is based on Phoenix, Arizona, but I put it there because it had mostly Hoenn and Johto mons, and seemed to fit nicely in that gap.
Still looking for help choosing the best location for Fiore, and any suggestions for additional locations welcome.
I am happy for you to use this with my permission, so just contact me if you want to use it or create your own world map using it. Thanks!
