    At one particular point in the game, I was quite impressed by an abrupt barrage of innuendo. But I was curious. Was this in fact an accurate translation from the Japanese version, or was the translator just bored at this point and made up some outstanding lines to keep himself entertained. Perhaps someone with great insight can shed some light upon this mystery.

    I'm not convinced the quotes you've selected are actually examples of innuendo, Evidence not required.

    I take you've not come across the bit where a kid calls you a "bugger". I haven't buggered anyone so Nintendo has insulted me.

    And for those of you too innocent to get the significance of the first post, you needn't feel the compunction to reply.

    I think the best one was that Massive Damage comment.
    I love how Nintendo is subtly playing into the culture, Paper Mario Quotes, Hammer Bros 1337speak and now Pokemans!

    I remember seeing that, but it was earlier days, and at that time I was naïve enough to think that it was just a coincidence.

    Gotta love this

    "She is right. For instance, any child exploring the most popular Pokemon websites " 2 will be linked to a selection of occult games such as Sailor Moon, Star Wars, and others more overtly evil."

    "Matthew's tutor had already warned her that the Pokemon craze could stir interest in other kinds of occult role-playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons"

    The most occult force is the church itself [​IMG]

    Time for some Star Wars alike Pokémon game - May the (occult) force be with you!

    Sailor Moon is the epitome of occult. God save the Internet.
