So he's not Gold anymore, but Red stayed as Red? I don't get it, and I still miss Kris...

Oh well, It's just a default name, I could call him whatever I want.

We haven't heard about Red yet, however I would imagine that Red would remain as Red. But if it does changed, I'm sure it will be posted on Serebii.net/

And everyone misses Kris...

Well it's like Marmite, you either love it or hate it.

names for Rockets are cool.

They're OK, however I don't see any resemblance at all to anything...
Proton, Petrel, Arianna and Archer... :S They're just completly random compared to each other, if someone notices a resemblance please tell me I am so confused... :S

JADE orb. seriously? that is so stupid! Red, Blue and Jade. wow.

I know, it's stupid. Red and Blue Orb couldn't be changed though, as they're a major part of the storyline in R/S/E (Hoenn), however the Jade Orb was non-existent, as you woke up Rayquaza urself. However your completly right, they must be having a laugh.

Lyra hah, reminded me of the Golden Compass for some reason

That's where the name came from! I thought Lara Croft for some reason :S even though it's pronounces Lie-ra, and not La-ra

Jade is a green color.

Why are you complaining?

Read my previous post.

Petrel and Proton are British and Russian rockets respectively. Archer and Arianna stem from the Greek origins of Apollo and Athena's names.

JESUS FREAK
Aww man, I think I might go crazy! March 14th, please get here already! I just gotta get soulsilver already! Um, anyone find any official american wallpapers for heartgold and soulsilver yet? I've looked all over the net for some, but I can't find any at all. Anyways, I've talked to many people, including my girlfriend, and their as ready for the release of these games as I am. Man, the suspense from waiting is killing me!

As the crow flies...

For me, it reminds me of that god-awful credits song they play at the end of the film, so I definitely know what I won't be calling her.

Anyway, yeah, the "Jade Orb" does sound pretty stupid when paired with it's counterparts. I wonder why they didn't just keep the original name...

About the Game Corner: Does this mean the Game Corner will be in the European versions, seeing as they changed the game to something that's not quite reminiscent of the casino?

Well to be honest it never had an original name, as this is the first time the Green/Jade Orb has appeared in game, because in Gen III in R/S, you just went to the Sky Pillar and battled Rayquaza without requiring the item.
In Emerald, you just went to the tower to wake up Rayquaza yourself.

The reason the Orb wasn't featured was because Team Aqua/Magma had no intentions of controlling Rayquaza, whilst they did for Kyogre/Groundon, because they wanted to change the landmass and oceans of Hoenn.

I imagine that if the Green Orb ever did exist during Gen III, it was left at Mt. Pyre, as it was useless to Team Magma/Aqua.

The Game Corner will be in the games, it's just that there will be no slots.

I meant the FR/LG Red.

What part of his post indicated that he thought you meant some other Red? He said Red will probably stay Red, unless Serebii posts otherwise.


Ethan... that's my brother's name! :p

I do like the name Sinjoh Ruins, it pairs very well with the other regionally intermediate location, Tohjo Falls.

Well, look at it this way...

Gold's new default name was Hibiki in Japanese HGSS right? So you'd expect them to change his name in the english. But in the Japanese version they kept Red's name Red, so therefore, RED STAYS RED. If his name gets changed I will be surprised.

Though I seriously question what they're gonna end up calling "Blue" in english though..... due to the whole FR/LG thing, I'm wondering if younger Pokemon fans will understand if Blue remains "Blue". Heck, they may choose to make his name "Green" this time, even if it messes up the continuity the names have had all these years.

Not really happy with them changing the Rocket's names...... Athena and Apollo suited the executives just simply because they sounded so grandiose....... and Lambdar sounded like such a lazy name which thus suited a stoned looking guy like him.

Meh, I won't complain too much, I'm just happy the game's coming out soon. Complaining doesn't really get anyone anywhere.

More than likely, if they had wanted to change his name, they would've done so in LG/FR, the games where he was a playable character. No point in changing his name now.

As for Blue, I see his name remaining the same.

Well Red and Blue/Green were both named by the player. Unlike Brendan, May, Dawn, etc., there were no official names. So, if they ever did decide to name Red, they could do so without screwing up the continuity (aside from G/S/C, of course).
