I just read about this. Doesn't anyone else find a bit a freaky?

Never seen it in my ROM and don't think it's an official message. So not really.

Pretty sure I've heard of this before. If it's real, it's definitively an anti piracy measure.
I'd like so see a pic, just for ****s and giggles of course.

Yeah, it definitely couldn't be a prank from a ROM hacker that got spread... oh wait.

First, note how Bulbapedia doesn't make reference to it (or any other important site at all)

Second, think about it: it seems kinda unprofessional for Game Freak to put such a relatively strong hidden message when they were so busy turning all the gamblers into gamers and useless **** like that.

And I also read about it on Bulbapedia on this page.

But still, I agree, it was more likely to of been put in my a rom hacker.

It would have been more likely, but one can't argue with the reports of ROM dumpers confirming the message is legit.

The question remains that I never saw this message myself. Maybe the ROM dumper removed it? We'll never know.

What I wanna know is if that was in the original Japanese games as well, or if it was added after being translated.

Something.
