Shall we keep the honorifics in our translation?

We actually didn't get translations of any of the original gen 1 trio. Our Red and Blue versions are an amalgamation of their Red+Blue and Green+Blue versions respectively.

The game system is from Japanese Blue, and the texts are from Japanese Red and Green. So Green Version was translated and "transformed" in to Blue. I'll leave for a while. Later!

*late to the convo again*
I guess I'm weird in that I prefer honourifics, cause although they don't have a translation or meaning in English, the fact remains they're still there and used constantly, not just in Pokemon. It doesn't help I prefer the Japanese names of characters/Pokemon/locations as well... don'tmindmesorry

For Green and Blue, I call "Gary" Green and the girl Blue, since that's what their names are. I'm kinda confused as to why there's any debate about it, even with Viz messing up their names just because of the English releases of the games. Like, even when I was reading the Viz chapters, I kept calling them by their correct names. Guess it's like when I read English names of characters and mentally call them by their Japanese names. Idk I'm probably just being confusing.

You're not weird, everyone has their own taste. Some prefer to keep the honorifics others don't. As long as people don't complain/ whine about what others prefer I'm cool with the others opinions.

Yeah, you're not wrong, petermueller88. I wish I knew other Japanese manga/ anime, but the fact is that I love Pokémon, and am not used to other series. The only point that I always keep in mind is that we are dealing with a video game here, and I respect the official translations it had. What I want is that people can read this manga and think "Oh, this is Blue! I know him from the Pokémon World Tournment!" It's better to pull than to push newer fans. (And we are not saying anything wrong, these are their English names in every medium.)

About the polls, I don't know if this is the best way to deal with things. If we can debate with our points of view and then get the opinions/votes from people who know the subject entirely, it's a good thing. But these forum polls often bring people who don't even know what we are talking about, and leave the results maculated.

well the other members of our scanlation group do and I don't think people who don't understand much about the nicknames etc will vote.

Ow and if you want to read some interesting manga, I can recommend you some. Like Rosario+vampire, Mahou Sensei Negima, magi, vampire knight.

I tend to see Special as a different universe. yes it's based on the games, but the characters aren't completely the same. Green has a complete different personality than his game counterpart same is for the other dexowners. The villains are worse, the side characters do so much more. It's like looking through those viewing boxes. Smile

True... I guess since the Manga never really used them before (I think I only saw it in one chapter), we should stick with that same route. For the Blue/Green naming mix-up, I just kinda prefer it to be how it originally was because when Viz switched the names, it just made everything more confusing. Like when I was reading the CY chapters, I honestly couldn't tell if they were sticking with the original names or swapped names half the time.

But man, you want some Anime/Manga series to read and watch... I gotta big list of 'em I could recommend 8]

I think I've read them all. Ginji's rescue team was the first Pokemon manga I read and in dutch XD. They gave it away in 3 booklets if you bought a jetix magazine. I got the second and the 3rd. If it weren't for those manga I wouldn't waste my money on a magazine. Laughing

*goes back to reading fanfiction*

Edit: Okay I checked and I haven't read Golden boys. It looks interesting Very Happy

You have probably not read Pokémon Battle Frontier then either. It is probably the rarest English Pokémon manga ever published (and I own it). This is because it had a very short print run. The mangaka is Shigekatsu Ihara, the same person who made Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!. The main person in the manga reminds me of Hareta from DPA.

I've read Electric Tale of Pikachu, Diamond & Pearl Adventure and Ginji's Rescue Team. I own the latter and used to own vol 1 of D&P Adventure. They're all pretty good. The Manga adaptations of some of the movies are good as well.

Well, unless you know Japanese then you haven't really read it.

Is there a scanlation of it somewhere? Or perhaps that could be another project we could work on in the future, since the raws are already available.

Nope, never got scanlated, or scanned in English.


I do have some plans for Team Special Scans:

Main Project: Pokémon Special


Side Projects:

#1 Mobilize!! Pokémon Ranger [ongoing]
#2 Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys volume 1 and 3
#3 The Electric Tale of Pikachu chapter 16-20
#4 Pokémon Battle Frontier


Only one side project at a time. We take on the next project when the previous one has been completed. (I don't want to see a bunch of uncompleted projects.)
One of the best parts is that there are complete English translations for all of the side projects already, so the translators can focus 100% on Pokémon Special.

CodeNora might have begun to clean Mobilize!! Pokémon Ranger chapter 0 by now.

I have made a thread for this so that we don't continue going off-topic here.
