This man knows how to catch a Pokemon

A Guy: ん?ポケモンの つかまえかた おしえて ほしいのかい?

「いいえ」

A Guy: そうかい。だったら いいけど、まっ、ほしい ポケモンが いたら ひたすら あるきまわる ことだね!

A Guy: hmm? You want me to teach you how to catch Pokemon?

[No]

A Guy: I see. It’s fine if you do, but if there are Pokemon you want, just focus on walking around!

Interesting green pixel placement

Green Boy: よお おまえの ポケモン げんき?ポケモンが よわってきて たたかわせたくない ときは なるべく くさむるを よけて あるいたほうが いいよ。

Green Boy: Hey, are your Pokemon well? When your Pokemon are weak and you don’t want to make them fight, it’s best to avoid the tall grass when walking.

Plump Guy’s blue twin

Blue Guy: ちょっと ひとやすみ したいから レポート かいてんだよ。

Blue Guy: I want to take a little break so I’m writing a report. (saving his game)

Green Lady

Green Lady: そこに だんさが あるじゃない?とびおりるのは こわいけど くさむらを あるかずに ワカバまで いけるのよね!

Green Lady: There’s a step over there isn’t there? Jumping down it is scary, but you can get to New Bark Town without stepping in tall grass!

Berry Guy: あさ しか でない ポケモン つかまえるため ここで まってんだ。

Berry Guy: I’m waiting here for a Pokemon you can only catch in the morning.

Let’s check out Cherrygrove City… At night.

Outside at Night Guy

Outside at Night Guy: どうろに たってる トレーナーと ゆうかんに たたかったんだけど。。。ぼくの ポケモン まけて ボロボロに なっちゃた。。。ポケモンセンターに いかないと。。。

Outside at Night Guy: My Pokemon fought bravely with a trainer that was standing in the road, but… They lost and are totally exhausted… I have to go to a Pokemon Center…

The one and only Blue Lady

Blue Lady: ポケモンと いっしょなら どこにいくのも たのしいわよね。

Blue Lady: If you’re with Pokemon, going anywhere is fun.
