Thread: A couple of English details

    The spelling Hoenn, yes, in Latin alphabet, is seen in some Japanese texts, apparently. More remarkably, the spelling Rayquaza is found in the name of a file in Colosseum and XD.

    The anime doesn't matter a whole lot to me since I don't watch the dub anymore, but little kids going "lol Ash is going to SIN-OH!" is going to make me wince. ^^; Because really..."sin-oh" makes me think of something from Yugioh ("Sin-oh, King of Sins!").

    Shino is five letters.

    Yeah, I pronounce all kinds of names wrong until I hear them in the anime. Though I did get Bonsly right when PUSA and 4Kids both had it wrong at Comic-con.

    This debacle seems to be pretty much the same Rukario/Lucario debate.
    People were so adamant about keeping the Rukario Romaji, but in the end
    we all settled for Lucario, right? Rukario looks better in it's own right
    but when it comes to it's English translation, NOA just has to correct those
    imperfections and even still, Lucario still sounds similar enough.

    This case of Shinou/Sinnoh isn't much different. Given time, it won't look so glaring.
    We just got used to a different spelling.

    Just wait until we get to know the English names of the new DP pokemon. :P

    People will always complain.

    It was also apparently going to happen at the end of September. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Still... it has to happen soon so it would make sense to be as soon as the Ranger hype dies down.

    Everyone on Serebii is jumping to the conclusion they will show ALL the new Pokemon.....

    I think we will be lucky to get anymore then the starters.

    November 18th is the day after the Wii is released in the US. Sounds more like wishful thinking to me. Someone thinking that once the Wii is released, the focus will shift to Pokemon. Which might be true, but a DAY after? I dunno. Could happen, but I'm not placing any bets.

    My projection is that due to the holiday season, all the focus will be on Wii and some other things coming out this season. We will be lucky if any info on D/P is given to us before 2007.

    If Nintendo even has the time or money to devote to Pokemon for the next two months, i'd be extremely surprised.

    Especially since D/P aren't going to be here any time within Jan/Feb anyways, so that's plenty of time next year to start publicising it.

    Probably Buoysel, Perap, and Tamanta get English names.
    That shall be the information.
    I wouldn't expect the starters to be announced until January, at the earliest.
    I fully expect NOA to follow the same basic marketing pattern.

    I hope we get the names. I think its likely bouysel/flowsel will keep its name as it is appropreate for an english name.
