Could you summarize these two interviews with Satoshi Tajiri? They're from 2004, and one of them obviously pertains to Red and Green and their remakes. I'm mostly interested to know if Tajiri alludes to the reason he stopped directing the games.
How random. She could have expressed a similar philosophy by referencing the myths of her own region, or even Unova's. I guess that Game Freak don't have any plans of showcasing the Dragon Village anytime soon.
Junichi Masuda and Takao Unno are going to meet fans to answer questions about B2W2's development and showcase (more?) concept art. They're lucky I can't go. The participants will be determined by a lottery system, which I find silly.
I was wondering whether it was specifically mentioned that Brycen gave up his position as gym leader, or if he's simply going to star in movies again, since I hear that his gym is fully intact along with Clyde the Gym guide.
Yes, but he never told the player that when N wasn't around, and he certainly didn't try to confuse the player with such a statement. He just blurted it out when he was angry at N, and if you think about it, he actually implied that N wasn't really his son. I am not sure what he said in Japanese, but "After all of that, do you think you're still worthy of sharing the name Harmonia with me?" is pretty telling.
I was somewhat wrong about the perfection part: "What?! I created Team Plasma with my own hands. I'm absolutely perfect! I AM PERFECTION! I am the perfect ruler of a perfect new world!" But that's all he said. It strikes me as megalomania more than actual perfectionism.
There's a house in Opelucid City just north of the Pokémon Center. In the prequels, there was an event there revolving a time machine, which required trading a Pokémon from another version. In B2W2, I know that the relevant characters are gone, but the machine is still there. Could you check what the new dialogue is about?
Generally speaking, just how many of the NPCs have been removed? Just the interesting ones?
Yes, this possibility has just dawned on me. There is no excuse for such sloppy writing from a native speaker. What a shame.
It's interesting that the first line was paraphrased very closely in Crystal, which was released a few months after the movie. I suspect that Game Freak wrote all of that, but then someone had the clever idea to butcher the meaning.
