Hong Kong S.A.R. is the hometown of both myself and my persona. The city itself, due to its special historical circumstances, can have its own Pokemon League that is not affiliated with Leagues from either British or Chinese. In other words, this city itself is indeed, a region which I called it "Hong Kong Region".
The 18-district orientation Hong Kong has in real world gives me a chance to design 17 gyms, one for each type, with a Pokemon League building location in the 18th district. Out of the 17 districts I divided them into 8 separate areas with Wan Chai District being left out for the location of the Pokemon League.
In my story-line this is the background of the Hong Kong League itself: It was established in 1976 after the success of the Pokemon League tournament in Kanto region a year earlier (the one Professor Oak became Champion on, check Volume 3). Initially has 8 Gyms in Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, new Gyms were added in various areas in New Territories and the League had divided Hong Kong based on the map of District Council around 1997 after the Turnover.
In Hong Kong League, rules from Indigo Pokemon League generally applies in Hong Kong as well: Whoever has 8 badge can join the finals of the tournament, which is held every 3 years, without question. But the condition is that you'll have to have at least one badges from each district shown on the map to qualify. The 12th tournament, in fact, was being held earlier this year of 2012.
Max and Bosco's father, Vincent, was the Champion of the League from 1985-1991, and 1994-1997.
This is a map that is now being featured and the center piece of my new group, . Please check out the group!!!
Notes: The background map isn't mine. I pulled it from the internet and edited the border.
Notes 2: C. and W. stands for "Central and Western"
Dec. 20, 2012- Added the logo of each District Council as the templates of Gym badges.
Thanks for the fav and watch!
Thanks for the fav and watch!
really nice! but I am wondering what order are the gym's in?
Hey, this is great! It's a lot like what I'm trying to do with other regions.
I originally wanted to use the basic format of routing and community dividing like the other region does. But since I know the entire city has way too much major settlements to be divided to, and the 18-district orientation gave me this idea of 17 gyms+league idea. Glad that you like it!
Cool! I am from Hong Kong! There is gym in Wan Chai(my friends and I always hang out there, my primary school is also there.) and it is home to me! Even Aberdeen(I go to school there now)! Yay!
my god...whoa. this just mixed my world with pokemon
you live in hk? :3
Not now, but I was born there. (To be more precise, I was born in Theung Kwen O, the Poison-type Gym.)
lol, you ever planning on going back? or how often do you visit?
The last time I was in town was... almost 5 years ago. XP
oh wow! you going back for winter break, hopefully? XD how good is your chinese? where did you move to? omg sorry i'm being so nosy x.x
It's really fascinating seeing the work of someone who knows a lot more about Hong Kong than we did at our project. Good job!
Ah, funny, I recently had an extremely similar idea!
On this city as well?
Yeah, exactly! XD
Wow, looks like Hong Kong is a lot more popular then I had expected to. :lol;
Haha, seems so, I was surprised to see you had the same idea. XD
The city's my hometown, I would gonna have to make this sooner or later.
Ah, really? Haha, that's sort of similar to my idea that I had for a region based on the New England region in the northeastern United States. Of course the starting town was based on Providence, where I live.
yeah i really now have to make a map of the locations of my hub and now i changed my main hub to a town called degollado
And this, my friend, is one of my two global hubs.
When I saw this in my DA messages, I did a double take, I live in the electric district :U
Close to it :U
You don't speak Chinese? Oh, sorry. When I saw you said you live near Central District I assumed you do. I was asking if you live anywhere near Kennedy Town or Sai Ying Pun, or perhaps the Mid-Levels or Sheung Wan?
