Hi Bulbapedia! Long time user, first time poster. Sorry if this question has been asked before but I was wondering how does the Japanese version of Pokemon handle honorifics. I know Shigeru used Satoshi-kun which gave rise to Ashy-boy but what about the others? Does Satoshi start calling Kasumi and Takeshi with honorifics and then stoped, or has he never used them. or did he always use them even in their goodbye. And if he stopped midway, do you know which episode that happened in? Also does TR use honorifics with each other too?
