Celebrate 25 Years of Pokémon with the Sinnoh Region Quiz

Test your knowledge of the Sinnoh region and the Pokémon and people that battle, train, and live there in the video games, animation, and Pokémon TCG.

The Sinnoh region is a land steeped in myth, with powerful Legendary Pokémon that fuel those sensational stories. The Pokémon Trainers, Gym Leaders, and Professors who call Sinnoh their home have plenty of their own stories, from fierce rivalries and battles to tales of Pokémon and humans collaborating to build a better world.
