Today’s post is part of a long line of comparison posts. Today’s comes as a personal curiosity, but also enabled thanks to a reader question:
“In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, there is a certain Pokémon Center Nurse in the Battle Maison. She speaks totally differently in a funny way. Is she the same in Japanese?”
I remember this Nurse very well! I’ve been curious about it myself. There is a similar Nurse also in the Battle Maison in Pokémon X/Y, though she speaks in a different way. So I decided to take a look at them both for today’s post!
Today’s Pokemon is Talonflame. More information on this Pokemon, as well as source of the picture, can be found here.
As usual, original Japanese card is on top/first, and my edit/translation is below/second.
-I wish I had higher quality scans so that the editing does not come out as horrible as it does with these.
-I used the original Japanese name for “Flare Drive,” but “Devastating Wind” was the best translation for the first one that lined up with the official translation.
