Gotta Catch ‘Em All

To become the next great Pokemon trainer, you must first map out the world’s regions. Each number shown indicates the number of contiguous grid squares in that region (only horizontal and vertical squares count as adjacent–no diagonals!), i.e. that region’s size. No two regions of the same size can border each other. Note that each region may have zero, one, or more labelled grid squares in it.

Then, figure out how to use the map, potions, and your wits to catch all the wild Pokemon! The final answer will be a San Francisco location, where all the very best trainers will be hanging out.
