    Default Abyssal Ruins

    Is the text in the Abyssal Ruins the same as in the Japanese version?

    It's weird symbols. GF's sad attempt at hyroglyphics.
    I don't always resist, but when I do, it's with The Resistance. Stay resistant, my friends.

    It was like that in the Japanese version. What I'm wondering is, since the text in the Japanese version was a substitution cipher for English, did the English version change it to some other language?

    I have no idea. You should go ask in the B/W help thread. You'd get more help over there.

    I believe it was actual phonetic hieroglyphs, so I think the translation would be a bit difficult.

    I'm wondering if they actually mean anything like the "hieroglyphs" in 3rd gen in the Regi caves iirc.

    I believe Unown Lord/Silktree translated them, basically talking about a king and a Pokemon, but I don't remember the entire thing.

    EDIT:

    Underwater Ruins deciphered

    The Japanese ones did, with most of the symbols corresponding to one English letter, and read from the bottom right across then up.

    It wasn't him that translated it, he found the same translation on the same Japanese wiki I did.
