The eagle eyed-Pokemon fan proceeds, approved they re of differing dimension, as are the Wild Location ones, but this one area is basically the equivalent of 2 Wild Areas, and if there s 5 of similar dimension, that ll be a great deal of areas to explore.

We ll have to wait up until Pokemon Legends: Arceus formally releases on January 28, 2022 to learn exactly big the gmae s map is.
