In the dub Rudy says they're his but someone said he never said that in the Japanese version. So I need to know what he said in the Japanese version when he invites Misty to see them.

Rudy's Invitation

In the Japanese raw, カスミさんうちのジムのぽけもんたちをお見さしましょう、 Kasumi-san, uchi no jimu no pokemontachi wo omisashimashou, is roughly translated as: Kasumi-san, let me show the pokemon of Uchi Gym. In the dub: I know, let's go to the gym and let our pokemon meet Misty. So, yes, in the dub he calls them "our pokemon" and in the raw Uchi Gym's pokemon. But as the gym leader, there's really little difference except for the addressed speaker change from his sister to Misty. Someone more versed in Japanese can fix up my omisashimashou, but that should for a rough translation. Hope that helps.

In some Japanese dialects, "uchi" can be used as a first person pronoun. Thus, it could well be "my gym's pokemon".

And in some social situations as well, but I've never figured out which. It seems like a humble first person pronoun, perhaps similar to otaku as a honorific second person pronoun.

I see he is using some amount of humble language in that sentence anyway...
