Time for another entry in Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon comparisons. I have looked into some others before, which you can find listed under the comparisons page!
Today, I look at a quick reader request for Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon:
A friend of mine told me that, in the health class scene in Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, the partner in the Japanese version asks the teacher if evolution is similar to sex. In the English localization, they instead compare it to puberty. Could you confirm whether this is true?
They helpfully provided the links to the dialogue in question for both English and Japanese (a big thank you for that!)
While playing through Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, I came across a rather silly part in Chapter 6 where the psychic Pokémon Espurr uses telepathy to distract the Vice Principal Watchog to allow the player character and their friend to sneak into the classroom to avoid getting in trouble. When I read the brief scene that plays out as a result, I couldn’t help but wonder what the original Japanese may have said.
Anyway, when you read the dialogue, I am sure you will see why I (and probably some others) may have wondered just what this scene looked like in Japanese. So I went and got the Japanese text to take a closer look! Please take a look below.
