Kroel (Japanese: クロエルチホ Krōel-chihō)) is a super-large landmass and the primary region of the Pokémon: Iron, Copper, and Bronze games, and the primary region of the Iron/Copper anime canon. It is unique in that it contains the largest number of fakemon in any fanmade regional Pokédex, with over 500 Powermon including numerous legendaries. It is so massive that it is divided into four seperate regions, and gameplay can start in any one of the four labs stationed in each of their respective starting cities.
Region I is based on the real-life West Coast, and is referred to as the Western Region in the games. Most of the Powermon that originate here can be found in all other regions, although some are known to be exclusive to this region. Overall, there are 151 Powermon native to this region.
Region II encompasses the entire northern quadrant of the region, and is the largest region so far. It is based on a fusion of the Rocky Mountain States and the Midwestern States, and players who start here can find 100 Powermon native to this region.
It has been debated as to whether Darksilvania is planning to create a fifth region, to correspond to Unova (japanese: Isshu). It is highly likely, however, as there are several Powermon that he has created that are unnumbered and therefore do not correspond to any of the existing Pokémon.
- The climate of Kroel is drastically different from that of the real-life U.S. For example, there are jungles in the southwestern region, which do not exist in reality, while some of the climate in the Northern region, particularly the Loskoll Mountains, is colder and more drastic than the real-world Rockies, possibly due to the increased altitude.
- Region I is so far the only region to have two cities in which their real life counterparts are in the same state: Cauldron City corresponds to Los Angeles, California, while Pupanunu City corresponds to Riverside, California.
- All of the starting cities in Kroel are named after the colors in heraldry that represent each of their respective regions. Silver (Argent) is the signature color of Region I, Or (Gold) of Region II, Gules (Red) of Region III, and Sable (Black) of Region IV.
- Incidentally, all of these colors have been used in a version of the existing Pokémon games, as Generation V has introduced Pokémon: Black and White.
