For the edification those that follow the Pokémon games, and have been working under the assumption that Nob Ogasawara was directly in charge of naming characters, Pokémon, Places, Items and such. The following paragraphs are written by the man himself in regards to his involvement in the creative process.
Question: Nob, did you name any of the american pokemon ? Or was it just dialogue translation ?
Question: I'm curious to know what the content (names/story/language/etc) is really different from the US version.Originally Posted by Nob
*edit* I heard it was darker or some such.
The quotes above make it pretty clear that Mr. Ogasawara had very little involvement in aspects such as naming characters until Diamond and Pearl. The bulk of his work in the Titles from generations I to III was with the actual game dialogue text.Originally Posted by Nob
And, to top things off, Nob Ogasawara is (spoiler warning) credited in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, meaning this is probably the last title he worked on, not the first title without him.
That's all for today. Until next time, this is your friendly neighborhood Trainer-c saying stay cool. =D
