The names of most of the cities in Hoenn are made of two words put together (Little Root, Fort Tree, Ever Grande, etc.). Professor Birch is the resident Pokémon Professor and gives Trainer's a choice between Treecko, Torchic or Mudkup as their starter Pokémon.
Cities, routes, and other locations
Hoenn has sixteen cities and towns and a Pokémon League. These sites act as settlements for people to live and work in a functioning society. Hoenn features the largest amount of towns and cities of the six main regions.
The Hoenn region has 34 different routes, which are passages permitting Trainers to travel from one location to the next with relative ease. Much like Sinnoh after it, Hoenn's routes are numbered so that they don't follow sequence directly from previously-known regions' routes. Routes in Hoenn are numbered from Route 101 to Route 134. Compared to other regions, Hoenn features an abundance of sea routes, giving the impression that the Hoenn region is half-water and half-land. The Hoenn region has several routes that have weather conditions, including constant rainfall, thunderstorms, falling ash, and rays of sunlight.
The Hoenn region is unique and famous for its tropical-like environments. Despite Hoenn's abundance of water routes, there is a large amount of land. Since the cities and towns of Hoenn are immersed into nature, there aren't many large cities comparable to Unova's Castelia City or Johto's Goldenrod City. The region does not feature a true mountain range like in Sinnoh and other regions. Hoenn includes natural environments including a volcano, a jungle, a beach, a desert, and many more.
