Ash is apparently the main character in Pokemon Red/Blue

I lol'd. They changed it to Red. I guess too much backlash...

The anime and "Ash" is too ingrained in the majority of Western audiences who got the anime? I'm not even looking down on America or whatever.

I see this mistake everywhere when this stream is covered for some public news outlet

The anime is far too ingrained in the minds of 'murricans


Except that that's BBC, a British site.


He just wanted to blindly hate on america

nothing new on this site


Don't hate america. Hate the world. People are all the same. It doesn't matter where you are.

Not everyone blindly hates a country. I feel bad for all that do.


I blindly hate Afghanistan and Israel. Does that make me a bad person?

Do people forget Ash was the name option when you started the game.

I'm talking about on the numerous American sites I've seen. There's at least four or five major ones, and BBC is the first UK one I've seen do it

Even the Canadians are guilty


"hate" is too strong a word though. Being able to self-depreciate your own country is a good thing etccc


Uh oh, your ignorance is showing.

What exactly is ignorant about self-depreciation

I'll apologize for singling out Americans though.

Red is the name that they're using on the stream though.

You focus on America and Canada and say they're guilty. What about other places in the world? Lol, don't act like only 2 countries have ignorant people.

I'm focusing on two examples of English-speaking countries. I'm not saying they're the only English-speaking countries in the world.

I don't think that many other non-English speaking countries in the world use "Ash" as a localized name, so they wouldn't fall into this problem.

The Asian countries don't use Ash as a name. But apparently Germany, Italy and France do. I don't know if they'd attribute the main character of Red/Blue with the name "Ash" in the same way so many kids here growing up with the anime would.
