Question, has anyone noticed how, Earthbound, and town's structures, the battle sequences, are very similar to the Pokemon games? Was Pokemon Red/Blue and so-on, inspired at all by Earthbound/Mother? The main trainer, in Pokemon games, looks like Ness, large head, red heat, jeans, red shoes, etc. The towns are structured similarly. Both battle sequences appear with hardly any visual effects, just sprites, and text boxes. Any connection?
