Is there any comparison to the original? Just to see how badly translated it was. Elf - Pokemon is evident though, but other things, since I don't remember or never knew the original quotes. "WHAT ARE YOU!?" should be "Who are you!?" I guess. Would be interesting to see a comparison text by text.

I didn't think that to be quite necessary, as I assumed anyone who reads this article has played the games and has a pretty good idea what specific quotes are mistranslations of. Also, to do that would not exactly fit this column. To see a text-by-text comparison would still be interesting, however.
