If at first you don't succeed, warp reality till it fits your demands ;)
claimed Ekans on 10/28/2012 and all has been well in the world ever since. :)
I want this so much. I even emailed TPCi years ago asking if BW's script changer option can be used in the English versions of BW to swap between UK English and US English. After all, we have to wait longer than America, but the only difference in our games seems to be the code on the sticker.
I don't quite understand, what's wrong with the American English being used universally?
And well, you don't see it, but it doesn't mean it has no point, from the point of view of a british fan, using ''Colour'' and ''Mum'' is NOT just a letter change, it's a whole cultural process that is ignored when games have no british translation, and it's not just in words too, the MM/DD/YYYY is also pretty jarring and confusing for prople, who, like me, grew up using DD/MM/YYYY
I could definitely see them allowing you to choose the dating system in the future, but from a business standpoint, i just don't see the whole translation ever happening. People in the UK are able to understand the american english, so they wouldn't go through the extra cash of making a separate translation. I'm not saying this because I'm american, i'd still say it if english english was the translation used as well.
Now, if they were to use Britain as a region in the future, I would not be surprised if they make them use the british english instead of american one.
Hope you remembered what I was talking about, about the starter selection.
Here's what else I want in Gen 6: The region should be based on the state of my old Kentucky home and name it "Kentu". The starting point can be based on Central Kentucky, and the Pokemon League is located in what is based on Louisville.
Hooray for the Fairy-type!
Just remembered - If possible I'd like Shiny customization, so you could choose how your Pokémon looks, they would have predetermined options as colors for each parts, I'd love to make a Red and black colored Serperior, and call it Jafar.
Think about of the year like a subtitle. BlankBlank:Blank.
And that is why MM/DD/YYYY is the way it is.
Anyways I want my IV raising berry and more new type combos

Date format by country - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Scroll down to the map - USA and Belize the only countries that uses MM/DD/YYYY exclusively (other countries like Canada seem to use a mix). But DD/MM/YYYY is BY FAR the most common date format used around the world. Now I don't have a problem if Americans wanna do it differently, but I don't wanna be forced to use their system, which I find confusing, when adding an option to choose the layout is so easy.
I just have to say briefly on the whole topic of date format -
It baffles me as to why anyone would have a problem with being able to choose your preferred date format in-game. What exactly is the issue?
I'm British, and @Serperior; is correct. For me, the U.S format is totally jarring (By the way, @Wyvernphlare; We understand the process behind the U.S format - there's no need for the rather condescending ''allow me to explain it to you.''
Anyway, all I'm saying is that to have any sort of problem with Game Freak introducing the option to change date format is, quite frankly, dictatorial.
In Gen VI, I'll be happy regardless of whether we are in a new region or in Hoenn - as long as Oak makes a return and they have some more rewards for a completed National Dex. That was a welcome, and overdue, addition in Black/White 2.
As for the British/American English thing... what's the point? it'd be a waste of time... besides a few slang and grammer and spellings (what's with you guys and the unnecessary vowels? Colour just looks weird...) they're the same language... and I don't get why MM/DD/YY is so hard to understand.... Besides if the Gen VI region is also based on America it would make no sense for them to usw British English

This is probably a silly thing to wish for, but I want the gen 6 Pokemon to be as simple as the gen 1 and 2 Pokemon. I liked that in gen 1 you had the trio legendaries, Mewtwo as the one big obtainable legendary, and then Mew as the "secret" Pokemon. Gen 2 followed the same way but added two main legendaries, Lugia and Ho-Oh, with Celebi as the "secret" (or "unobtainable", however you want to think about it) Pokemon. I've been out of the Pokemon scene for awhile so apologies if I'm wrong, but it seems like the later generations have been adding in tons of "legendaries" and "unobtainables" (ya know, those Pokemon that you can only get through an event). For me, adding a ton of legendaries makes them less special.
