Fantina is arguably my favourite gym leader in the series due to her eccentricities (her laugh, in particular). This leaves me wondering, though; how heavily will Game Freak write in their view of French stereotypes just because of the region? Unova definitely had some reflection of their views on Americans. I probably missed half of them, even, simply because they seemed so normal to me as a North American.
This is probably the thing I am most curious about with regards to the new games.
Also, props to anyone who gets the title reference!
You know Fantina spoke broken english in the japanese version, correct?
You know that I was talking about the NA version of the game, right? Yeah, in those ones she's French. The new games have a region based on France. I'm not wondering if Fantina will be in the games; I'm wondering how heavily French stereotypes will play in.
If you want to make the distinction between the NoA localization team and Game Freak, that's fine I suppose. That's really got nothing to do with what I was saying, though, as Game Freak clearly observes stereotypes as well.
I'm disappointed in the lack of topic reference getters.
