    When they cut something from games for localized versions (sometimes scenes, items, or test menus and level select codes and the like), but said content can still be accessed with cheats or poking in the script, they either:
    1) leave it untranslated in Japanese (or random gribberish caused by the Japanese font being removed):
    examples: Lufia II, Suikoden II, Castlevania SoTN, Earthbound,...
    2) blank it out, or put "no need to translate"/"dummy"/etc
    examples: Tetra Trackers, Manzai game in Rhythm Heaven Wii, Chrono Trigger,...
    3)bother to translate it to English, and more rarely to other languages
    examples: bath scene in Landstalkers, e-Reader/Pocketstation content in some (but not all!) games that have them available only in the JP version..

    It would matter because it's perfectly possible that this content, being made unavailable in the US version outside of cheats, may in fact not be translated and appearing as gribberish/random Japanese.

    Example from case b: you can access this room with cheats in the US version, but it's almost impossible to navigate since ALL the (normal) text from the Japanese version for that room was replaced by this:

    In that case then its possible although I'm not sure what all you'd find regardless. It is after all just a demo disk that distributes pokemon.

    How long on average does it take you to think of these?
