A recreation of the Pokémon region of Sinnoh (86x80 Huge)

Please give this mod a Like if you like it! Your support is a source of motivation for me to keep making maps! Comments and suggestions are also welcome! Thank you!

Saph's Sinnoh

  • Sinnoh, formerly known as Hisui, is a region in the Pokemon world and the setting of the Generation IV games Pokemon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum.
  • This is a mountainous terrain, with the land of the main island divided into two halves by a massive mountain range.
  • This map is created by a fan of both the Civilization and Pokemon series to celebrate the release of the Gen 4 remakes Pokemon Brillian Diamond & Shining Pearl. (No, I haven't been paid to do this XD)
  • There are some Easter eggs on the map for you PokeFans! See if you can find'em all!
  • Even though they are not shown in the images above, rivers (along with floodplains, lowlands and resources) are map-generated, so every new game you start will be different.

Map size: 86 x 80 (Huge)

Required Mod: Gedemon's Yet (not) Another Maps Pack

Recommended Mods:
  • Religion Expanded: This adds enough beliefs to vanilla's 20 so that you won't get locked if you are playing with more than 20 civs but haven't chosen a belief.
  • Tomatekh's Historical Religions: This allows a maximum of 16 religions (instead of 12) when you have Gathering Storm.
  • Prismatic - Color and Jersey Overhaul: This adds enough jersey colors so that you can play with more than 20 civs in one game. Otherwise some civs will get transparent colors.

Game Set-up
To play with advanced YnAMP settings (as seen in the screenshots), you need to
  1. Have this mod and Yet (not) Another Map Pack installed and enabled ingame
  2. Single Player --> Create Game --> Load Database (next to the BACK button) and wait for the game to load
  3. Once loaded, you will be back to the main menu
  4. Single Player --> Create Game (You should see a tick next to CREATE GAME at the top.) --> Choose Map Type --> Saph's Sinnoh --> Advanced Setup

Recommended Settings
  1. Only Civilizations/CityStates with TSL: Off, so you can play with custom civs.
  2. Adjust the number of civs, city states & religions in the game to your liking.
  3. Manually pick the civs to play as/against or leave them random.
  4. Rivers Placement: Choose Map Generator as there are no pre-placed rivers on this map. Or you could choose Empty if you hate rivers for some reason.
  5. Features Placement: Choose Import for the true Sinnoh experience. Choosing Map Generator would randomise the features (i.e. woods, rainforests, marshes and reefs)
  6. Coastal Lowland: Choose Map Generator for random placement / Matching flatlands for more dramatic flooding / Empty for no lowlands
  7. Rivers Flooding: Choose Map Generator / Empty for no floodplains & flooding (and hence no dams)
  8. Resource Quantity: Your own preference (Resources are map-generated; this map does not contain pre-placed resources.)
  9. Civilization Placement: Choose True Starting Locations to have civs start at important locations in Sinnoh. Map Generator for random placement.
  10. Enforce TSL: Off is fine. Choose A.I. if you do not want the A.I. to stray from their TSLs.
  11. Use Leaders TSL when available & Use Alternate TSL if required and available: On if you have chosen True Starting Locations for Civilization Placement
  12. Allow random placement for civs without TSL: On, if you want all selected civs to appear in game.
  13. Real City Naming: ON, if you are a true PokeFan!
  14. Turn on No Duplicate Civilizations & No Duplicate Leaders

Special Thanks
The creation of this Civ 6 map would not have been possible without Gedemon's YnAMP and Zobtzler's YnABMC and their posts on the Civfanatics forum.

@perfectwing: No problem. I've put the list of starting locations in a discussion thread above. City states do not have TSL.

You should make a list of which leader is placed where. I started in Snowpoint, Canalave, and the Survival Area, and saw an AI in Hearthome. Are there any spawn points for City States with TSL?

@perfectwing: oh yes, one way of dealing with fires is to strategically chop down some forests to form firebreaks

Really beautiful map, but forest fires are out of control.

@feewet: Don't worry. There ARE rivers; they are map-generated, so every new game will have different rivers.

You should add real rivers to this map. Without rivers it's difficult to settle cities due to the lack of freshwater. You could get creative and add rivers that you think would make sense with the map. Very cool map either way!
