You’re both safe” “That was an insane experience!” “This belongs on the first page in the tale of my legend!” He says that all the time Even at the end of this game, I bet he’ll say it belongs in the first page of his legend -I’m sure he will

Wishing Stars” “are composed of a curious sort of rock” “They are the most precious resources we have” “here in the Galar Region” “But they won’t do a thing for you in that state” “Give them to me now.

-What the heck is this? “It’s a statue of the hero who once” “saved the Galar region” “Huh…” oh wait. This is Hop. “Huh…~” “This hero must’ve been as strong as my bro!” “You two are staying here at the hotel tonight” “Shouldn’t you check in?” “Although the reception desk is rather noisy” “Alright, check-in” “I can already see!~ your ultimate demise!~” “I can already hear!~ your whimpering voice!~” “You’ve been challenged!” So like, since everyone can receive EXP at the same time it’s kinda too easy for leveling everyone up You couldn’t do that in older Pokemon games Zigzagoon Read it again Do it once more “When I’m sad..” No no no not like that I knew you’d say that “When I’m sad!~ My voice is unsure!~” “I wanna yell!~ But I’m unsure!~” It was a bit different this time -“What are you all doing?”

Good night!” It’s a Pikachu! “Now, I would like to invite the Gym Leaders to” “please show themselves!” They’re so cool “When I was little, I played Pokemon with my cousin” “on the Nintendo DS” “It’s been such a long time since I’ve played Pokemon” “and I was so surprised by this game’s high quality” “It seems that you can download this game online” “Even that fact alone was surprising” “Please try out this game if you haven’t already!” “Unfortunately, I was sick despite that it’s our 1st video” “Thank you so much for watching till the end!”


  1. I also saw your reddit post! I just started watching the video so I haven't seen much yet but so far I'm surprised by Leon's (champion w/ charizard) name being different.

  2. Hey dude! Excited to see you guys doing your thing. I'm about 8 months into Japanese, n2 level reading can't speak for shit yet but hopefully these will help. Please keep makin these.

  3. Yeah, glad you posted that! This’ll really gonna help me match pronunciations with kanji, and comprehension for reading and listening. I’m glad the subs aren’t built in, so I can turn them on only when I don’t understand something. This is an awesome idea, thanks for doing it!

  4. Thank you so much for doing this! I’m only on week two of actually studying Japanese instead of just lightly trying. Definitely subbing!

    Wanted to get Shield for this exact reason. I play a few mobile games in Japanese to help (like Tabikaeru 旅かえる。). And using a Japanese keyboard can be fun but only if I already know the romaji of a word LOL.

  5. Hey there, my wife is Japanese as well, and I speak Japanese. I am playing this together with her, and I would love to do something like this as well. Keep up the good work!

  6. I also made a Japanese Pokemon video but I am nowhere near as good as you are now. Keep it up, the channel is already having a good start!

  8. if making something like this just a great and original idea, but going even further with 36 minutes of subtitles, extra stuff and listening to your fan feedback is supposed to be hard work so first minutes in you deserve my respect 🙂

  9. Just a simple question. If the game is bought in a different country (like japan for example) does the game still let you choose your language?
