No, it involves handcuffs, a bed and a very convinient Growlithe :)

Ishhu/Unova is a foreign country compared to the four regions, so why not have non-Isshu characters refer to the region and Pokemon by the Romanised Japanese names (as Kanto/Johto/Hoenn/Sinnoh people are equivalent Japanese anyway), whilst Isshu natives will use the English equivalents (and vice-versa; Issu characters will refer to Gen I-IV Pokemon by Romanised Japanese names).
So what do you think?
Thanks for the positive feedback guys, obviously the trait won't come over too strongly until I start introducing Ishhu Region characters, closer to the BW release so I have more English names to work with, but I'm glad you like it. By the way I'm not overly protective of the idea, so others can use it if you like.
I have an idea that I'd like to get some help constructing; basically, it's going to be a post-apocalyptic Pokemon story. The world diverges from the Pokemon anime at the place of the first movie; Mew was too busy doing its own thing at the bottom of the ocean to come investigate Mewtwo's Island, so it wasn't there for the major battle that took place, leaving Mewtwo free to intervene in all of the battles for its cloned Pokemon. It roundly defeated all the Trainers there and then left the island; it was then set upon by Kyogre and Groudon who were trying to defend the world from its assault.
Mewtwo at this point had become even more powerful, and as such warped Kyogre and Groudon's attacks so they didn't work as intended; this caused all sorts of earthquakes, tsunamis, tidal waves, etc. to wrack the earth. Mewtwo finally locked Kyogre away in a sphere of earth atop the highest mountain, and Groudon in a bubble of water at the bottom of the deepest ocean, and then asserted its control over the laws of physics.
The biggest change that it made was that combustion no longer worked the same. Fire now only burned reluctantly in the best of conditions, meaning things like the internal combustion engines were worthless; this caused a collapse of most of the rest of society, leaving most towns either wrecked from natural disasters, or deserted when the looters and bandits came through.
That's the general background of my idea. The story would focus around Pokemon Trainers in a Road Warrior-esque feel; trainers wander from place to place, righting wrongs, fighting injustice, and living by the Trainer Code, which I can enumerate if the story needs it. If I don't, however, it doesn't limit what the code can be, and it can be a plot device for all sorts of things.
Since existing technology is far less common, and useful, than it had been before this all happened, a lot of the manufactured goods have ceased production. This means that Pokeballs, Potions, Antidotes, etc. are all but gone; the last few Apricorn smiths are the only ones who can make the respective balls, berries are the only way to do healing, etc. Trainers are very protective of said smiths, generally hiding them away in hard-to-reach locations with a Pokemon or two to guard them. They also protect berry patches, although most of them are unpalatable to humans.
So yeah, I'd love to have feedback; suggestions, criticisms, things I've forgotten or can skip.

A question I have is what of other legendaries whilst Mewtwo is on its rampage. I.e. Rayquaza, since the other two get involved it seems logical that it would as well. Also it is easy enough to continue this train of thought that if Mewtwo was messing stuff enough would he invoke the wrath of Diagla/Palkia/Giratina, or even the lord and creator Arceus. (Who comes down in bug form and eats mewtwo for fun?) Also Mew, seeing as he wasn't around during the first battle what happens when it resurfaces and is all "Aww shit! MEEWWTWOOOO!!" -insert Mew rage here-
And from a purely physics/chemistry based point of view in what way has Mewtwo played with the atmosphere to induce a combustion preventing atmosphere? Would this mess with all fire Pokemon rendering them inert, or just useless most of the time?
Anyway I will shush now as I have run out of ideas, but yeah i like your story and can't wait to get the chance to read it!
