  • It should be noted that, although the Battle Zone is placed on the Sinnoh region map, it is however not considered to be a part of the region. This is due to the fact that many local civilians state that Pokémon originating from Sinnoh are a rare sight and themselves do not consider it to be a part of Sinnoh. This trait is also shared with the Sevii Islands of Generation III.
  • The Battle Zone is based on the geography of the southern half of the island, Sakhalin (Japanese: 樺太(からふと) Karafuto; Russian: Сахали́н Sakhalín), which is formerly a prefecture of the Empire of Japan and now the Russian Sakhalin Oblast.
