What happens when a bootleg game goes through three or four translations? Nothing good, of course, which is a good thing. Does that make sense? No? Good, because I'm playing through one such example of that translation and I'd like the rest of you to be just as confused, disturbed, and amused as I am.

 

Without further ado:

Ah... The age old question. With such an obvious answer. Now that that's settled, let's get this translation train wreck on the road!

Wait, that's actually pretty good English. I'm starting to think that-

I spoke too soon.

 

 

 

And now that that mess is out of the way, here is our old friend Professor Oak, with the opening narration.

...By which I mean, here is an elf monster wearing Professor Oak's skin. We're wasting no time in boarding the nightmare train.

Existed. Past tense. Let that sink in for a bit.

 

Done? Good. We're moving on.

Just a warning: I'm probably not going to screenshot entire speeches at 10 words each, so you're going to be treated to only the best out of context quotes.

 

MEANWHILE, IN WHATEVER NEW BARK TOWN WAS TRANSLATED AS:

The nightmares continue.

 

I obeyed, and got a phone. But how do I operate the phone?

This is how. Got it? Good. There will be a test.

 

Before leaving: a line that should tell you everything you need to know about this game.

I then decided to harass talk to the locals.

Unfortunately, I don't speak the language. Perhaps someone else could...

Nope.

 

But enough of that. Time to get a starter and get this game on the road.

There was some stuff in between here. It made about as much sense. I skipped through much of it in the hope that he'd just give me am ELF. My patience was rewarded.

Now we're getting somewhere. He walks over to the table and

And I suddenly realized that I have no idea what I'm getting into!

 

So, I have one of three options ahead of me.

Do I CHANGE FIRED ELF INTO A BIG WIND OF FIRE?

Do I take the WATER ELF, LITTLE CROCODILE?

Or do I... "GRASS ELF QIGE LEADER MAY LIKE"? The hell?

 

THE CHOICE IS YOURS!

 

 

 

GRASS: 6 vote

FIRE: 0 vote

WATER: 2 vote

 

Changes to this format are all but guaranteed as I figure out what I'm actually doing. This is an experiment, and I may or may not experiment with videos, as screenshots don't do the thing justice.

Pick Chikorita and take it all the way like you did in your last Crystal run. After all, I picked Cyndaquil, and Cherry has stated a preference for Totodile before. Besides, you've also picked/preferred Treecko, and Turtwig, and Snivy. You're the Green Thumb here, ALG!
