    Really? I was wanting an August release. Oh well, I guess that October isn't that far.

    Two weeks later than I expected(September 23rd, 2012), but WOOHOO! Finally!!!!!! We have a release date!!!!! :D Just a little over 3 months to go. 3 months, a week, and a few days to go. Now, all we need is Keldeo, Meloetta, Dub titles for the 15th movies, and the price of Pokemon Dream Radar, and a release date and price for Pokedex 3D Pro.

    I think August would be a bit soon, being only 2 months after the Japanese release. This release is 106 days after the Japanese release, the smallest gap the main series has ever had.

    I kinda worry this means the translation will be rushed resulting in questionable dubbed dialogue (The "All Your Base" kind of dialogue). The U.S. had more than 4 months to get the games fully translated from the previous games.

    Marlon? What the heck kind of name is that? And why couldn't Pokewood stay as Pokewood? It's name DOES come from Hollywood, after all, and that's a place from the US! I don't see anything wrong with that, in fact, I'd feel honored.

    It isn't like they had over 600 Pokemon to give US English Names to this time. Or 20 cities and people to give US English names. Only just a few things needed US English names. Most of all of the other names stayed the same from BW. And the US English Versions were announced the same time as the Japanese Versions, so Nintendo of America and The Pokemon Company International have been working on the US English Versions since February when they were announced. Evidence of this was that we started getting getting US English names and US boxart last month. Nothing is rushed. They just worked fast. The US English names are great. Like always. And everyone will get used to them, like always.

    PokeWood sounds like a bad porno....


    Still the Hollywood reference was better left in tack than something like "PokeStar Studio".

    Unless 'Pokewood' would be enough for Hollywood to consider a lawsuit. =P You'd be surprised at the things people sue over. And to be frank, I find Pokestar Studios to be a much better name. Pokewood sounded stupid to me.

    I don't really like Hue's name change to Hugh though. Yes same pronunciation, but... Hue had a relation to shades and colors.

    Ah, yes, true. And believe me, I know that people will sue over crazy things. Eat'n Park, a buffet restaurant found in the northeastern US, sued a smaller business because they believed the place stole their smiley face cookies. So yes, I'm aware.

    I don't really like Hue's name change to Hugh though. Yes same pronunciation, but... Hue had a relation to shades and colors.
    Yeah, I agree. I'm going to go with Hue when I get B2W2.

    They were going for a normal sounding American name while keeping the sound of "Hue" for the meaning.
