    Default A couple of English details

    With the English release of Pokémon Ranger, Serebii.net is reporting this:
    • Manaphy is known as Manaphy in English.
    • And it should be easy to get it for D/P since the event missions can be unlocked without going to an event.
    • The other revelation is that the region of D/P will now be known as Sinnoh.

    Sinnoh will take a bit of getting used to...

    I did not realize that Ranger's release would involve making English names for them, but oh well. I still don't expect any other English names to leak out until next year.

    Sinnoh? They put the 'h' in the wrong place >_>. So what, it's pronounced Sin-o in English? First time they've changed the Region name so vastly. Hoenn/Houen is pronounced exactly the same and Johto/Kanto are the same obviously.

    I think they should have left it as Shino. :/ Or at least Shinoh.

    The "si" sound is pronounced as "shi" in Japanese, so they didn't change anything.

    Ah, so us English-people would pronounce it the same way?

    You know...I just realized Korobooshi and Masukippa will get renamed as well. -_-

    Because it would make the little Narutards confused with the character of the same name. XD

    Or, NOA likes to be different.

    Sinnoh?

    "Sin-oh"?

    I actually like it more than how I've been pronouncing Shinou- "Shin-ho". ^^

    People aren't going to pronouce Sinnoh as "shee-noh". It's an odd choice if you ask me. >>

    Sinnoh's pronunciation's is...well...Dangit, couldn't it have been Sinoh? It wouldn't trip my tongue otherwise, and looks less....It wouldn't have six letters! >_< I'm so used to five and Orre's four!

    "Sai-noh" would've been better in phonics. "Sin-noh"s just odd. o_o

    Sinno? I like Shinou better, though that's probably since I'm preconditioned to accept that.

    It's good you'll be able to get Manaphy without the events, Nintendo left them until the last minute in the 3rd generation.
    Don't expect to see me around anymore, except in the Brawl threads

    "Sinnoh" IS the Japanese name, it's just that we've never seen it officially romanized before. "Shin'ou" is how "Sinnoh" is spelled in kana. It hasn't been changed- it's just that our translation was off this whole time.

    And Habunake, if you haven't heard, the trademarked romaji name of Masukippa is "Muskippa."

    So, how is the Manaphy event unlocked in English Ranger? It'll probably be a while before I'm there, but I'd like to know.
