    Default Pokemon GSC: From Japanese to English

    Sometimes, when a game is translated to English, more than the language gets changed!

    With that thought in mind, I've set out to film both the English and Japanese versions of GSC (with some help from some friends) so you can see the differences between the two:

    Here's what I've discovered so far:

    1. Starting the Game.

    English: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0cvUm4fhKE
    Japanese: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMo-2DlV78M

    Notes:

    --I have included the title screen with my version (the English version) For some reason, my Japanese version flimographer forgot to film the Japanese version, so no title screen comparison yet
    --the Marill sprite looks happier and sounds different in the Japanese version

    The sprites look different because he's using Gold whereas you're using Silver, and back in ye olden days different versions had different sprites. Aside from that...their cries sound exactly the same to me.

    Yes, I broke my several month period of lurking just to post that.
