Pokémon X And Y Art Directors On The Risk Of Stereotyping Real Countries

“If you end up being too picky about the local atmosphere, there’s always the risk of possibly having ideas and their representations be too close to each other,” says Pokémon art director Ken Sugimori. (3DS, Pokemon X and Y)

For 7th gen, I hope they go with Hawaii. I don't care if they over stereotype us Hawaiians. Lilo and Stitch already did that over a decade ago by thinking we all praised the Menehune, the Tiki heads, and that we all say Aloha and Ohana in every freaking sentence, etc.

Speaking of Tiki heads, there's an NPC who gives you an item in XY that is shaped like one, and the description says it looks like a Pokémon from another region not from the previous 5. I think the image was just a generic placeholder though as I doubt they've already thought up a Pokémon design so early into Gen VI, but I have hope.

Pacific Islands for 7th Gen Pokémon!
