English Pokedex Entries...0.0
Okay, I was browsing through my Pokedex when I came across Wobbuffet, and noticed two buttons at the bottom, one says [JPN] and the other [E].
Clicking the [E] turns the Dex Entry for Wobby in English, with his English name showing.
What is up with this????

"To keep its pitch-black tail hidden, it lives quietly in the darkness. It is never first to attack."

o.O Holy...you're kidding. You mean the Pokedex in the game?

The Wobbuffet is female, shiny (obtained with a AR....however, I also checked my other shinies and they don't have dex entries), and transferred from English Leaf Green (via Japanese Ruby), named SonasouX, and holding a Lax Inscense.
Anyone with Wobbuffet, check your dex.

All I know is that if they don't keep it exactly the same, they just love to make work for themselves. o.o
But it's not like this hasn't happened before. The Nyarth's Party CD had "Meowth's Party" written in huge text on it. The English version of Type: Wild had dub names.

Yes, but a Japanese game has never had an option to switch the dex to English, with dub names.

Does this work for all Pokémon in the DP dex? Or is it just for ones transferred from English games?

It only works for Wobbuffet, I've checked every other one, even the ones that I have imported.
EDIT: Hatched a Whynaut from SonasouX to see if it had an English Dex, and it didn't.
This is awfully odd....I feel kind of happy I discovered it though.

Can't Touch Dis.
Not that I don't believe you, but I demand pics. I just want to see it myself.
Very curious that it would do it at all, let alone that it would seem to be completely insanely random with how its done.

I don't have a camera.
But, someone with Wobbuffet should check.
Or, tommorow I can trade one of you guys it too see if the English Dex option will show up.
You don't trust the Habunake?

WTF?! That's BIZARRO!
How would that only happen for one Pokemon?

I have no clue.
I haven't done anything with Wobby since I imported her yesterday.
Someone should ask around the Japanese sites for info...

lol, that is extremely odd... I mean, I'd expect this with pikachu if I had to.. but Wobbuffet?

I don't have a Pikachu, so I haven't checked with that.
Wobbuffet is pretty popular though...
