The Tanfa region is a new and vast region found with Pokémon Jīn & Pokémon Mù. This region will slowly be revealed through version updates. The region itself is split into five areas called proximities. The region itself has densely populated areas and the towns are considered to be as a large as some small cities. Due to the lack of available land, it is common for taller buildings to be constructed.


Here is a confirmed list of the five proxmities:

  • Northern Proximity: Featured int he launch version. It is characterized by its cold north and fertile lands in the south.
  • Southern Proximity: Featured in the second update version. GAME FREAK has stated that it was only recently that people began to settle here.
  • Coast Proximity: Featured in the second update version. GAME FREAK has stated that it is a rural island with an airport.
  • Capital Proximity: Featured in the third update version. GAME FREAK has stated there are two cities here: one used to be the capital in ancient times and the other city is main capital.
  • Islands Proximity: Featured in the third update version. GAME FREAK has stated that it contains a number of small islands and devoid of cities.


While not much is known about the region's history, GAME FREAK has stated that the region is quite old and was held by a foreign power for some time until it's governance was given to the people. While it's people has grown to welcome foreigners, the region itself has a strong nationalistic identity.

  • The region was modeled after Hong Kong and borrows various aspects of the area. It was flipped 180 degrees to the left in order to make the map more playable.
  • It is a very large region in comparison to older regions with the Northern Proximity roughly the size of the Kanto region. However, the region for this difference in size isn't due to actual size but due to differences in programming/development.
