Pokémon: Red/Blue – Old Man in Viridian City’s Dialogue Comparison (JP vs ENG)

OldManTitle

I watched an old episode of DidYouKnowGaming earlier (excellent video game trivia channel), and among them they mentioned a tidbit about the Old Man in Viridian City and what he is actually saying in Japanese. I won’t ruin what it is for you to see for yourself if you’re not already aware!

I found it amusing, but got curious to look up the exact dialogue. I figured some Pokémon fans were aware of it already, but couldn’t actually find anyone who wrote the full (albeit short) dialogue out to show those who were curious like me. So, I thought to do something in the style akin to the great website Legends of Localization and compare them side by side.

As usual, this is all done on my free time, and takes awhile. It can be a lot of work, but I do hope you enjoy! I am unemployed… so please consider donating if you like the work I do. : ) It certainly helps me keep going!

Pokemon OR/AS Certificate Translation

f413e19d

The game released in Europe today, so in celebration, here is a brief translational tidbit related to Pokemon!

You get a nice little message from the creators of Pokemon if you bring in a Pokemon all the way from Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald to Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire.

Here is the certificate in Japanese, courtesy of nintendoeverything.com

I decided to just translate it to what I assume will be the generic message:

“プレイヤー ____さま

____ との途切れることのない 友情と固く 結ばれた絆を称 ここに 証明します

ゲームフリーク
スタッフ一同”

“Player Mr/Ms ____[Trainer Name]

Here is a certificate in commemoration of your unending love and unbreakable bond with _____[Pokemon].

-Game Freak Staff””

How heartwarming!
