Modern day Kanto this is where the Kantojan Nationals have chosen as their base with Saferon as their capital. Here is where the game starts and is where Elizabeth and James come from.
The training pits (or as they are known as in the modern set games Gyms) are found in the same positions as they are in the originals aside from the Cinnabar gym which is found in Gringay (Gringey City).
The town names are slightly different as they have been renamed over the hundreds of years between the games they are as following Palette (Pallet), Verdinan (Veridian), Pewter, Cerulan (Cerulean), Saferon (Safferon), Lavenden (Lavender), Vermileon (Vermillion), Celadon, Gringay (Gringey), Fushia (Fuchsia).
It has been reduced to just a part of Kanto now but it was an indapendant nation just north of Mt. Moon. It is ruled over by a monarch Queen Rin and her two children Princess Victoria and Prince Riley. They have very close relations to Kantojo with hints towards their future assimilation into the country.
The towns of Cameron are Rota, Cameran, Meco, Anadia, Hokido and Zeland. Cameran is their capital which is where Cameron Palace is which is where the royal family lives.
A string of Islands just south of East Kantojo including Cinnabar Island. They are ruled by a self-appointed king who is vicious and hostile to the natives who have started to leave for new land. Their capital is Cinnabar and the king hints that he wants to join up with Kantojo, the islands do become part of Kanto.
The seceding land to the West which will become Johto eventually they started the civil war when they felt that Goldone should be the nation's capital as it is much larger. They also felt oppressed by the easterners. They do become a sponsored state of Kantojo called Tohjo and eventually over hundreds of years an indapendant nation called Johto.
The towns are very similar to the are in modern days with only a few changes Birark (New Bark), Grove (Cherrygrove), Violete (Violet), Azalea (Azaelia), Goldone (Goldenrod), Ecruteak, Rikishii, Olivine, Cianwood, Mahogany, Blackthorn and Silverback (Silver)
