• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Let's go to the beach, each.
I love those two very much, and I'm glad that Game Freak thought to add a married couple to these games. There are probably a few more out there, but we rarely get confirmation on this sort of thing like we got with Lenora and Hawes. I still can't get over the fact that Lenora's clothes were changed in the English anime. She wasn't offensive at all, yet they went out of their way to censor her :/

Well, I heard of someone shipping Bugsy and Falkner.

Guilty as charged ;)
 
Yeah I kind of like that they added the couple, but it was more of an add-on than anything important.

Then again, not everything has to be important

People are so annoying these days. Nintendo were right to censor it, there is probably someone, somewhere, who is boring enough to care about a black woman on a kids game wearing an apron.

I don't think they should've wasted their time, personally. I'm African American, and I didn't think Lenora was an offensive stereotype like some people do. I'll admit that she caught me off guard when she was first introduced, but I got over it since I really liked Lenora's other attributes. You'd have to look really hard to find offensive material in Pokemon, but I guess that I shouldn't be too surprised. This is a franchise where adults bash children for being wrong, after all. So anything is possible.

Cheren reminds me of Conway from the anime...

Lol, I thought the same thing when I first saw Cheren's artwork last summer. I think Conway might be funnier, though. And a lot more creepy. And while on the subject of Cheren: Are some people still confused about his gender? I've been browsing around several sites dedicated to fan art, and most of them portray Cheren as a female. I'm not sure if that's just mass confusion or if it's done on purpose, but I disapprove :<
