No. It's just an explanation. Personally, if I had to pick a single, concise word to translate what hadō is turning out to be, I'd pick (The) Force.

I donno, 'hado' brings out the Street Fighter fan in me.
Different hadou.

Let's see... functionally equivalent to "the Force", but not written by Lucas...
"The Wave"?

"Great Surge"? I found that on a Google search when I typed in "hadou". Apparently it can also mean surge or energy wave.

Isn't the Japanese name for Water Pulse 'Mizu Hadou'? (Water Force/Surge/Wave?)

*wonders if it's the same hadou*

Sounds like some variety of 404 No page found or "no hotlinking" page.

EDIT : it's a 403/Forbidden page.

EDIT 2 : You need to copy-paste the FULL adress (right click, then "copy shortcut" in IE) in your adress bar in order to be able to access the site.

This 波導 hadō is a word coined by the writers, I'm sure. Some other hadō found in the dictionary:
波動 【はどう】 (n) surge
覇道 【はどう】 (n) military rule

And here's something I should have thought of doing a long time ago. 波導 apparently is a legitimate word in Chinese - and means exactly what its components mean - wave guide.
波導 [bo1 dao3] /wave guide/

So, Ash and Kiddo are attacked by Shellder's, Aerodactly's, and other Pokemon made of slime?

*Looks at scans*

Hmm... what are the odds that Ash ends up throwing yet another legendary pokemon into a lake?

Freddy.......is......so....ugly. Any thing about what he does?
That's funny, because in his bio-blurb, it says (though I'm not that great at Japanese and am right now surrounded by dictionaries, kanji cards and several translation/dictionary sites...) something like, "Freddy - A mysterious young man with abundant beauty. It is said that by seeing this handsome guy too much, the women who encounter him will go crazy at a glance. Where this enters the story is a secret. Look for him in theaters!"

Ponds.... Thanks, Murgatroyd.

I can't find what that bit is. It looks like "ikemen," but it's in katakana, so I can't obtain a meaning from its kanji (if it has any).

Oops, just did a search, and I found that "ikemen" means "handsome." Yarg.

What would it be? "It is said that by seeing this handsome guy too much, the women who encounter him will go crazy at a glance" or something like that? Ach, I'll just let you do it and see how (or if >_>) the rest that I have match yours. At least I got the general idea....

How much you wanna bet May will pull a Brock/Sid on Freddy.

Hmm....Gardevoir would make a fine Pokemon for Fred.

I'm willing to bet it will be Musashi rather than Haruka that pulls that reaction.

Meh. I don't know about you, but I seriously hope both females are immune to him. <<; Just the idea of him with either really creeps me out...
