If I were ever to make a Pokemon fangame I'd style my fanregion like this. Obviously the towns and routes are the major missing elements, but I've planned them out. Just working on their look. Not sure how much more detailed I would make the map itself either. I do like a clean and simple look and I'm pretty happy with the general feel of this.

For those interested, this is based on California, specifically Northern California (a.k.a Alta California, hence the name). Some of the real-world places I've pulled from are:
Lake Tahoe (upper right)
Lake Mono (middle-right, with island in center)
Death Valley (right)
Yosemite Valley (right, forest ringed by mountains) including Half Dome (just above the forest)
Oroville Dam (center-top)
Mount Diablo (center volcano)
Clear Lake (upper left)
Alcatraz (middle-left island in bay)
Farallon Island(s) (in ocean at left)
I left space left for the towns in places where real cities and towns are, like San Francisco, Sacramento, Oakland, San Jose, etc. as well as places that would make for interesting locations like Point Reyes, Sutter's Mill, Lick Observatory, and others.
