1.0 Introduction

This is the GCFC's Yameneko549 bringing you a new FAQ for Pokemon FireRed and
LeafGreen's Fame Checker. I'll tell you how to get it, where each entry is,
and what is said in the entry. Ready? Let's go!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.0 How to Get the Fame Checker

Ok. In Cereulan City, your Rival fights you near Nugget Bridge. He'll give you
the Fame Checker, but only if you beat him. I'll help you out on this.

Battle Strategy:

the bird.

Don't worry, it won't attack.

Rattata: Hyper Fang is your only worry here. Use a Nidoran with Double Kick
if you have one, otherwise, just use a Lv.15 or above pokemon to waste it.

but watch out for Metal Claw.

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.
