    4.0 Discussion on various Fame Checker Entries
    
    Here, I'll post things people have sent me concerning various FC entries.
    
    CyrusMajin writes:
    
    I have some theories and facts about the translation of the Pokemon
    games that you might find useful for your FAQ.  So here we go.
    
    1)  You seem to have a problem with Nintendo (though GameFreaks was
    the actual development company) making Lt. Serge a verteran of the
    American Army in Leaf Green/Fire Red.  First, this has always been the
    case in the Japanese version of the first games in the series (called
    Red and Green in Japan).  Having played at least to that point in the
    Japanese, I can verify that Serge is American by the fact that the
    game says so in Katakana on the sign infront of his gym which says
    [through romanizing the kana] 'Laitoningu American" or Lightning
    American and by token of the fact that he and all the trainers are
    talking in Katakana, which is used for foreign words, to emulate his
    speaking English in the game.  Through reading the Katakana of Serge
    and the other trainers of his gym, I can also verify that he was a
    member of the Army.  However, I don't recall him having been in a war.
    As far as how the section was translated in Red/Blue I can't tell you
    if this information was kept when it was localized.  And as far as how
    Johto, Kanto, and Hoen are on our planet, I guess the best explanation
    is that they are a set of islands that haven't yet been discovered.
    (Note: Pokemon is not the first game/fictional story to have a made up
    place be somewhere on our planet so connecting it to the real world
    has little importance).
    
    2)  The difference in the spelling of Koga's daughter name between
    G/S/C and FR/LG is just a difference in translation.  It could have
    been that the translation team for G/S/C thought that "Charine"
    (Possible pronounciation: Chyah-ree-neh) was to wierd of a name and
    chose one that was spelled almost the same as the romaji version there
    by giving us the name Janine.  This is the same reason that there is a
    difference between the Japanese names of some Pokemon and the English
    names.  (note: The Pikachu line is one of th ones left unchanged in
    translation.)
    
    Dan Scarborough writes:
    I read through your FAQ, and, while it was very helpful, I feel I 
    should tell you that Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn (spelled with two n's) are not 
    made up, but actully based on areas in Japan.  Hoenn is based on the island 
    of Kyűshű, rotated ninety degrees.  Kanto is based on the Kantou plains.  
    Johto is a conglomeration of areas in Japan, and Orre, the area in Pokemon 
    Colluseum is, believe it or not, based on the area around Phoenix, Arizona 
    ("Phenac" and "Phoenix" get it?).
    
    Tom writes:
    In your FAQ for the Fame Checker in FireRed/LeafGreen, I read though it and 
    picked up on a connection for Lance. They mention a 'grandfather' who is 
    the elder of a dragon masters thing. Could this possibly be the Dragon 
    Master of the Elite Four in Hoenn?
    
    TeraDyne's Notes:
    I'm going to have to agree with Tom here. Drake is most likely Lance's
    grandfather. For one thing, he looks like he would be Lance's grandfather. He
    also acts like Lance in certian ways, like his choice of wording before you
    battle him.
