    Question Emerald and...Spongebob?

    I was playing in that dome thing inside the battle frontier in emerald and looking at my opponents. I saw a sailor named Patrick and instantly thought Spongebob Squarepants . Then I thought about him having a Staru and then I said "Naww". And guess what? He had a Staru! What a coinsidence.

    There was a Hal and Lois (the names of the parents on Malcolm in the Middle) in R/S/E as well (as a Young Couple). I guess NOA just decided to stick a bunch of pop culture references in that game, for some reason.

    One of the translators for Diamond and Pearl, if I recall correctly, is a regular at Something Awful, so it was bound to occur that numerous Internet references manifest within the game.

    don't like something? fix it. stop complaining about it.

    Wasn't Game Freak threatened with a lawsuit about that? The names were changed in Emerald.

    If they were, that's the first I've heard about it.

    And wow. Fox has issues to be sure.

    If you could sue people over pop culture references then family guy would so be sued.

    Anyways that's ironic, eh?

Regardless whether the lawsuit was legit or not, why would you want to take another company to court over something like that? It's an advertisement/homage for/to their show, why would you want to complain about that? It's an acknowledgment of their cult status and popularity, in a sense an indirect compliment.
    Yeah, that's what I thought. Family Guy, Simpsons, South Park and pretty much any other satirical show would be screwed if that was the case.

    Plus, Hal and Lois are NAMES. Hell, my brother used to have this page a day calendar of cats and one day had a fluffy kitty belonging to a couple called- I kid you not- Brock and Misty.

    I remember in Iron Island a couple of people:
    Black Belt Kendal and Battle Girl Tyler would like to battle!
    (i think it was supposed to be Black Belt Tyler and Battle Girl Kendal.)
    There's two things you should know about me:
    1. The Jonas Brothers and Commander Saturn of Team Galactic are considered hotties by me.
    and 2. I HATE IT WHEN MARS EATS ALL OF THE COOKIES!!!

    This is not a reference. The Pokemon in Battle Frontier are random. The Battle Frontier trainers don't have teams like normal trainers, they have Pokemon randomly chosen from Battle Frontier Pokemon (well, there's certain range of Pokemon belonging to one trainer, but still, it's not always the same range). So, it is a pure coincidence, not an intended reference.

    How can Game Freak be sued for NoA translators' crimes?
