Unova is a region in the Pokémon franchise and is the setting for the fifth generation of Pokémon games, including Pokémon Black and White and their sequels, Pokémon Black 2 and White 2. Unova is a region inspired by New York City, with its diverse geography that includes bustling cities, rolling hills, and sprawling forests.
In Unova, players take on the role of a young trainer who sets out on a journey to collect Gym Badges, battle the Champion of the Pokémon League, and eventually become the Champion themselves. Along the way, players encounter new species of Pokémon and new trainers to battle, as well as new towns and cities to explore.
Unova is also home to several notable locations, including the city of Nuvema Town, the birthplace of the player character, and the Pokémon League, where players battle the Champion to become the Champion of Unova. The region is also known for its diverse and challenging geography, which includes forests, deserts, and oceans, and the player must traverse these various environments in order to complete their journey.
One of the notable features of Unova is the introduction of new gameplay mechanics, including the concept of “Triple Battles,” which allows players to battle with three Pokémon at once, and the introduction of “Seasonal Changes,” which causes the environment and available Pokémon to change with the seasons.
