Kalos (Japanese: カロス地方Kalos-chihō) is a region of the Pokémon world. It is the setting of Pokémon X and Y. It is based on France. The Kalos region is shaped like a five-pointed star, with one of its biggest cities being Lumiose City to the north-central part of the region. It features a vast network of rivers and waterways snaking though much of it's landscape, cities and towns. North-east of Lumiose City, lies a mountain range where more frigid temperatures exist, extending down into the plains below. Professor Sycamore in Lumiose City will give you the choice of three starter Pokémon: Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie.
