Welcome to Ryme City
The location of their search is a city that's basically a CGI-enhanced cross between Tokyo and London, with plenty of Pokemon wandering its streets and alleys. In the embedded video featurette, the cast and crew talk about the inspiration behind Ryme City.
The cultural combo is certainly an appropriate choice, since the Pokemon franchise originated in Japan and the upcoming Sword and Shield's Galar-region is inspired by the UK.
