- Galar is the first core series region:
- To not have an "o" in its English name.
- To not have an Elite Four.
- Because of this, the Galar Pokémon League only have the Champion Cup, where the player character only battle the rivals, three of the eight Gym leaders, in the Semi-Finals and Finals receptively and battle the Champion in championship match.
- To contain no settlements that end in "Town" or "City" in their English names.
- To introduce no Mythical Pokémon at the time of its release.
- To contain a single landmass the map of which does not fit on the screen. Previous regions with multiple maps either contained or were archipelagos.
- To introduce four fossils, the most of any region so far.
- Despite this, the region does not beat the record for most Fossil Pokémon introduced (five in Kanto) due to the Galarian Fossil Pokémon being unable to evolve.
- Also, for the first time, none of the introduced Fossil Pokémon are Rock-type.
- To have two Gym Leaders resign from their posts over the course of a single game's plot.
- To not have an anime series solely dedicated to Ash Ketchum fully exploring the region in a journey.

- Galar is one, if not the biggest, region so far in the Pokémon franchise.
- Much like Johto, Galar region does not have an Electric-type Gym Leader or other notable specialists.
- Galar is the first region to have a Dark-type Gym and Gym Leader.
- Galar is the first region to not have traditional badges. The names are now simply the Type used by the Gym Leader.
- Galar is the first region where trainers have to wear official/regulation uniforms when challenging gym leaders. This clothing style is comparable to Super Contests in Sinnoh.
- Galar has the fewest numbered routes of any core series region, with ten.
- Northern Ireland is the only Uk Country not to be featured in the Galar Region so far.
- Gym Leader battles are public spectacles, with gyms now having stadiums for the battles. The puzzles and challenges each gym have been retained from previous games, though.
- Galar's gym challenge bears similarity to the Heartland Carnival in the anime series, Yu-Gi-Oh ZEXAL.
- Having to register to participate.
- Collecting pieces of an emblem to gain entry into the final round.
- This region is rumored to be connected to the Kalos region.
