Nintendo.co.jp has updated again, and an interactive map featuring brief descriptions of the Isshu region has been quietly launched.

The map is closely detailed. Panning is required to see the whole region. Some locations, including Hiun City, are attached to speech bubbles not dissimilar to the text bubbles that non-player characters will use. When hovered over, an in-game screenshot will be shown and small sampler text about the location can be read. The captions range from "the adventure starts at Route 1" to "arrival at a mysterious ruins".

Not all of the region has such text; the northern sections of Isshu (including the widely speculated "castles") remain largely a mystery.

Isshu will be the setting for the latest titles in the Pokémon series, Pokémon Black and White. These games, the first of Pokémon's fifth generation, will be released in Japan on September 18, 2010.

Update: The site has updated again with more information. Apparently the player can encounter double battles in the wild without the need of a NPC to battle with them. Additionally, an image of the musical building has been released, where Pokémon Musicals will take place in the Gen V games. An image of the Miracle Shooter with more information has also been released. We will bring more details as they are translated.
