Izaga Region Map, v.3.3 Final. Picture

Updated 9/23: There were more flaws here than I had originally thought. My thanks to NikNaks93 for pointing them out! This is thus version 3.2 over the old 3.1, and again, hopefully the final update.

On a side note? See how the bottom of the two-halves of Izaga vanish off-screen? Expect to see Southern Izaga, the Ashido Region, once I'm done with the Izaga Dex next year.

The mythology has only just begun, and Izagi and Izami were not alone in the beginning.


In the ancient past, the Izaga Region was created from little by the Isle Creation Duo, Izagi and Izami, and populated by many of their children; the Yomi Trio, Kyotsuka, Ohirasu, and Hayasusa; the Orochi Duo, Organagi and Nagonagi; and many others, including Ohirasu's guardian wolf, Eromi.

When Orgagani stirred up chaos unending in his drunken campaigns and finally wounded Ohirasu, Hayasusa took it upon himself to carve the land apart and trap-eternally the snake kami by himself and those who followed him away from the rest of Izaga.

The pain of his act saw Izagi and Izami enter into conflict over the justness of it, and in the end, when no agreement could be met, they broke apart and settled into the divided continent until their spirits merged into the land.

In anguish over his actions, Hayasusa deemed himself unworthy of walking the land among his siblings and lessors, and repeated his crime on the north-western shores, condemning himself to eternal exile the same as Organagi.

Ohirasu sealed herself away within a distant cave, unable to endure the regret caused by such a small wound to her form, and Eromi melted into the mountains surrounding it, ever-watchful of his mistress.

Kyotsuka fled far out of sight, secluding herself and those who followed her in the deepest lake imaginable.

With these kami forgotten about, man arrived on distant ships and the wings of pokemon, and so few myths remained to remind of those who came before... until modern times, and their gradual resurrection at the hands of the Cult of Izaya.


The Izaga Region is situated far to the south-west of the other major regions throughout the world. Due to the split down the middle, most official records have likewise divided up the region into two; Western Izaga, and Eastern Izaga, and as such a trainer need only Five Badges to come before the Izaga League; two from their home side, one from the opposite, and two from the top and bottom of Drakonwomb Island in between where the Izaga Conference is held bi-annually. To the deep south is the bitter Ashido Region, once a part of Eastern and Western Izaga before the lands were sundered at Hayasusa's mighty sword of chain-lightning, the Ame-no-Habakiri. Ashido is now an autonomous League to itself after being reformed following the end of the Ashido Rebellion and their destruction at the hands of Izaga's then-Champion, Oumii, just decades ago.


Start at the top-left and scroll horizontally to the right, then back and down one level to the left and repeat until you reach the bottom right corner.

Erom Range; a small mountain range set deep into the ground, about which a diminutive set of ponds act as a focal point to the north-east. Legends indicate it is shaped after the body of the legendary guardian kami, Eromi, the wolf of Ohirasu herself.

Erom Village; a relatively secluded village where old tales are kept alive in oral tradition. It is installed deep into a maze of underground caverns, but hardy trees with deep roots can be found on many levels. Gym Leader Rhuric runs his Gym out of the heart of the isolated domain. The Phoenix Champion, Shujaku Ryoga, has adopted it as a secondary-home outside of his native Sandaia Region.

Tsuraigan Lake; an angular lake just beneath the Ennounoou Mountain range. It is here that Izagi sank into the terrain, and where legend speaks of as the point where he looks out from his tormented dreams.

Ennounoou Mountains; a steep set of spires and pillars of stone jutting into the sky. The city of Ennou was founded there by outcasts from the original human tribes to settle into Izaga long ago.

Ennou City; A sprawling city carved out of the stone of the aforementioned Ennounoou Mountains, it is connected together across the yawning chasm between by great rope and wooden bridges. Despite its old-timey feel, modern science has installed many amenities and luxuries, like electrical lights and running water.

Templus Ex Hokuto; one of three great obsidian towers scaling into the heavens, they thrive with an unnatural energy, and hollow voices are said to ring and echo among them when a thunderstorm approaches. The lost Hokuto brothers are said to inhabit them at the highest peak, and on clear nights, when the stars are bright, the Light they represent shines between the towers distantly.

Massugu City; a border city supplying the Erom Range and Erom Village with electricity and hot water. Underground cabling and over-ground aqueducts tied into the ponds stretch from the North-East out of sight.

Mieru City; a city-wide museum to the history of Izaga, Ashido, and Sandaia even further south. The Librarian, Nicholas Noah, acts as guardian and guide.

Thulhurai Island; the island that Hayasusa carved from the North-Eastern flank of Izaga and took as his refuge and exile. It can only be docked at between certain days of the month, and in certain months of the year due to ferocious sea currents and natural storms. Two tiny ponds teeming with trapped Relicanth are just one of the many small sites of disaster following the Attenborough Experiments twenty years ago.

Northern Drakonwomb Island; passage across the Ennou Bridge leads up from Shadow Mance Valley, where Gym Leader Sabata Santos resides. Dark-types favor the location.

Senbai City; situated on the edge of a small range of hills and the Altonimbi Lake, Senbai City is a small but active community where poison type species are welcome and celebrated, and a hidden shrine to the snake kami, Organagi and its sword-tail Nagonagi can be found. Gym Leader Manda Rin resides here.

Fishbone Lakes; three lakes pressed closely together by the ocean upon Western Izaga. It is said that many ancient oceanic fakemon fossils may be discovered here.

New Ihlysian; the largest city situated upon Western Izaga, it is home to Professor Aspen and many revived fossil fakemon. Gym Leader Asher Asteroth recently constructed his Gym there to study beside the fairy specialist, Alchemist Edin.

Uzushio Lake; a large whirlpool landlocked in the upper corner of Drakonwomb Island.

Port Thulhurai; a heavy fortified town upon rocky shores, it is the only known dock available to those willing to sail to Thulhurai Island.

Izaga League; home to the Five Heralds, the leaders of the Izaga League, the Elite Four and Champion. Ferocious Dragon- and Wyvern-type fakemon dominate the surrounding subterranean Victory Road, from which the island takes its name. Organagi was once trapped here by Hayasusa.

North Rink City; a friendly community of speed-manics. Cyclists compete to complete the Rink Tour in as quick a pace as possible, and Rink Races are held every Wednesday of the year. Cyclist Amber is the reigning Rink Tour Master.

Hakurori City; a great city besieged beneath constant winter from the nearby frozen lake, from which it takes its name. Professor Rachel Oleander holds her laboratory near the Eastern Corner, far away from prying eyes. Fire type pokemon and fakemon roam the city streets keeping the lamps burning and making sure that no one succumbs to the cold. Gym Leader Kikyo resides upon the Southern city border.

West Rink Town; a cyclist-centered town where amateurs and pros alike can stop and exchange tips, conduct battles, and heal up after a long, hard ride. Tourists are welcome to place bids or even participate in a race for a cheap fee, and time trial records are stored here. Amateurs tend to start here and head up and to the left in revolving cycles to prepare for the longer ride down to South Rink Town.

Hakurorrim Lake; a frozen lake situated on Eastern Izaga to the south-east.

Fisher's King Creekland; an older village and host to the Master Fisher competition every few months. Retired-Champion Oumii and the Oumii clan originate here.

Karden District; a mountain range shaped like a twisted heart. It trembles and sends tremors throughout it whenever a thunderstorm approaches, rumbling even the Fishbone Lakes nearby. It is the resting place of Izami's body, where she sank into the terrain after separating from Izagi thousands of years ago.

Southern Drakonwomb Island; a jungle requiring HM Cut to carve a path through the Carnivine and Victrebell waiting for unsuspecting trainers. It is home to Gym Leader Nathaniel Woods.

Aorden Town; set in the offshoots of the Karden District, it hosts experimental seismic activity programs that were later put to use in Uchuushinzou across the Southern border. The Swordsman, Aldrich Paragon, runs his team vigorously against the tremors to hone their reflexes.

South Rink Town; the last stop on the Rink Tour depending on the accepted route.


I've still got to finish naming the towns, cities, and villages scattered about, as well as the Gyms, but here it is; the finished map of the Izaga Region! I'm quite pleased with it.

7/26/15: Well folks, I'm finally buckling down and fleshing things out!
