    I never noticed any difference. Then again I don't pay attention to grammar. I understood everything quite easily. I didn't complain this much about the way people talk when I moved from New Orleans to northern Louisiana for college.

    There's a difference in how they talk? The only thing I noticed was Looker got better with his quirky lines.

    Also I've looked at the text dump, the only mention of "ten years" is how long Cheren knew Bianca for. Want to give an explanation for that claim?

    Perhaps I noticed them talk a bit more formal, but then I'd much rather have that then, let's say, Jersey Shore dialogue.

    Also, the old localization team was famous for one thing: Memes. I wish I could say people don't speak in memes, but I know people that do, yet that's somehow more natural than their dialogue? I was wondering why I actually preferred the dialogue in BW more than previous games, and now I know.

    Yeah, I noticed the dialogue felt stiff, compared to DPt which was a bit more fun, but nothing that I'd say was "inhuman"...

    Although I DO wish more people got accents like Clay...he was my favorite Gym Leader in the dub for that reason alone.

    I... didn't really notice anything. I mean, it's not really any better or worse than the previous games (anyone remember gems like "You better have BURN HEAL!"?)

    I liked the older dialogue better. I also didn't like how x attack Missed was replaced with "The x Avoided the attack". That's an example of the lamer translation.

    TPCi = Fail. They have been failing with the anime in the past, but they only failed harder with the games with HGSS (slots), and now with this and the GTS fail, makes me think TPCi = Epic Fail.

    How is it actually lamer? Going form making it seem like your two Pokemon are just standing there and your guy just happens to suck at aiming at a still target to showing that they're actively trying to avoid each other's attacks?

    Lol at the OP, as I talk like that all the time. And seriously, it really does not matter.
    Oh, hello there. I will stay behind, to gaze at the sun.

    The sun is a wondrous body. Like a magnificent father!

    If only I could be so grossly incandescent!

    How is "I am happy." different from "I'm happy."?

    Same here. I don't notice a difference on how the dialogue is said, except for the fact that I have noticed that this game isn't sprinkled with memes. Even if I did notice a difference, I support Outrage's idea that since Unova is a different region than in past games, and is I believe that Unova was hinted to be farther away from the Japan based regions during development, that dialect would be different from region to region. Hell, a New York accent is different from an Ohio accent, which is different from a Texas accent, etc.

    I can't help but think this is just more "Unova/Isshu is based on America" hate.
