PostSubject: English HeartGold, SoulSilver names revealed   Wed Feb 03, 2010 4:57 pm

Serebii.net recently reported new information about Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver a month before the games' official English-language release. The site revealed the English names of the player characters, Rocket Executives, and more.

The player characters' English names were revealed. Hibiki is now known as Ethan and Kotone as Lyra.

The Pokéthlon has been renamed Pokéathlon, a portmanteau of Pokémon and Triathlon. One of the Pokéathlon stats was renamed as well. The Technique stat is now known as the Skill stat. The Apricorn Shaker mixes Apricorns together to make performance-boosting Apricorn drinks called Aprijuice. In addition, the Pokéathlon Founder named Kobushi is now named Magnus.

Team Rocket Executives' English names were revealed, as well. Apollo is now known as Archer and Athena as Arianna. Lance has been renamed Proton, and Lambda is now named Petrel.

New items introduced in HeartGold and SoulSilver were also revealed. The Verdant Orb, the item that allows the player to encounter Rayquaza in the Hidden Tower, is now called the Jade Orb. The Tide Bell, which is used by the Kimono Girls to summon Lugia, is now called Tidal Bell. The Unown Notebook is now known as Unown Report and GB Player as GB Sound. The Mysterious Crystal has been renamed Enigma Stone and the Itemfinder is now named Dowsing MCHN in Generation IV. The Compe Ball, the Poké Ball used to catch wild Pokémon in the Bug-Catching Contest, is now known as Sport Ball. The Apricorn Case and the Berry Planter that allows the Apricorns and Berries to grow while traveling, are now called Apricorn Box and Berry Pots, respectively.

Two locations were also renamed. Sinjoh Ruins is the new name for Shinto Ruins, a combination of the Sinnoh and Johto. An area inside the ruins formerly known as the Triad Stage now called the Mystri Stage. The Hidden Tower in Route 47, where Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza rest is now known as the Embedded Tower.

The Game Corner has also been changed. Instead of the slot machines, a new mini-game is added called Voltorb Flip. Players have to flip tiles to get a variety of multipliers. However, Voltorb are placed randomly in each set. The number of Voltorb are shown in each row and column. The task is to get the multipliers and not hit any tiles that contain Voltorb, similar to the game Minesweeper. As the player progress without hitting the tiles with Voltorb, the levels get more difficult and more tiles with Voltorb appearing, but the number of coin multipliers increases. Players will have to start at the first level if they keep on hitting Voltorb.

I've always hated the changing of the character names from Japanese to English, Hibiki and Kotone (with specific reference to Kotone) are fine as they are, the new names are terrible as usual (seriously, Lyra??) That's my 2 cents.

What?

As in Lance, the Dragon Master, has just been given a different name?
And at that, one that sucks?

no not Lance the dragon master.
in HG/SS one of the Team rocket bosses is also Called lance, glad they changed that then, wouldn't want too many important characters with the name lance now would we?

interesting how they removed the mainstream gambling machines and put in a little minigame instead too
