    It's spelled either Toroze, Torooze or Torōze! Also, the official name is Trosé! When will people finally understand that?
    THERE:
    Code:
    ト | ロー | ゼ
    to | roo | ze
    And for the official name, see:

    It's like Rukario/Lucario repeats and people are still as stupid -___-

    *sigh* Didn't we go over this already?

    I don't care. Filb asked someone from Japan, who also works at one of the Pokemon Centers, and that guy also said that Torouze is wrong.
    And what you quote also proves that Torouze is wrong, as the game's name is not written in hiragana.

    It should be noted though that Japanese companies have screwed up their romanizations before though. Kannaduki no Miko (Kannazuki no Miko) comes to mind just off the top of my head.

    That's fine Nipponsiki and Wapurō, though wrong Kunreisiki and Hepburn.

    I love that anime. It is probably one of the very few animes that ever made me cry.

    And because I have to say something relevant...

    That game's characters look poorly drawn, and it just looks like a new, harder version of Pokemon Puzzle League.
