The Tenno Region

Sinnoh-Style Tenno Map

The Tenno Region is a region in the Pokémon World. The word Tenno is derived from the Japanese word for celestial, and as such it is known for its advanced space travel capabilities and space industry. It is technologically advanced in many other aspects as well. Despite its technology, it is also a place of great natural beauty. The Tenno Region is divided into two main sections, Tenno Minor and Tenno Major. Minor is the smaller of the two main land masses and is home to relatively smaller towns while Major, the largest land mass, is full of vast metropolises.

The numbers on the map below all corresponds with a listed location below the map. Match the numbers to see the names and descriptions of various Tenno locations.
