    Thank you! Very tempting for me to get Pokemon Black or White in Japanese...

    heck maybe I'll learn Japanese as I get through the game using this page... Thanks again. (Should I get the game now? >_>)

    Thanks for your work. I figured I'd help proofread a bit. Here are all of the mistakes I noticed. I didn't proofread any of the 5th gen stuff since I don't have a reference to check against right now.

    Some mix ups with stats:

    Special Attack written as special def (とくぼう), Special Attack should be とくこう
    Special Defense written as defense (ぼうぎょ), Special Defense should be とくぼう
    Defense written as special attack (とくこう), Defense should be ぼうぎょ

    Some Copy/Paste errors in other sections:

    Abilities:

    Huge Power should be ちからもち
    Hydration should be うるおいボディ
    Serene Grace should be てんのめぐみ
    Shell Armour should be シェルアーマー
    Snow Warning should be ゆきふらし
    Sturdy should be がんじょう

    Healing Items:
    Full Restore should be かいふくのくすり


    Also, some suggested items to add:

    ふしぎなアメ -- Rare Candy

    マックスアップ -- HP UP
    タウリン -- Protein
    ブロムヘキシン -- Iron
    リゾチウム -- Calcium
    キトサン -- Zinc
    インドメタシン -- Carbos

    ポイントアップ -- PP Up
    ポイントマックス -- PP Max

    ダウジングマシン -- Itemfinder (if it exists)
    バトルサーチャー -- VS Seeker (if it exists)

    There are probably some others, but the lack of these items ones really stand out to me.

    Edit:
    I noticed two missing moves:

    Dragon - Dragon Rush - ドラゴンダイブ

    Normal - Judgement - さばきのつぶて

    OH, it's a pouch in my bag/inventory. Thanks. I can read Hiragana and Katakana, but it doesn't really help when I don't speak or understand the language ya know? :P

    Ugh, I reordered the stats awhile ago from my old HGSS/Plat guides and mixed them up, apparently. :[ Thanks, TRE! I've fixed them now, and I'm sorry to everyone for the inconveniences.

    Just wondering if you could add information on the wireless battle menus, for those of us trying to figure that out. iirc, there was something about an option to battle on the top menu, which I assume is the one below new game, but I have no idea how to go through the menus.

    They're like Japanese quotation marks.

    わっしにゃよう分からんが、ジャンプちゃんも日本語を勉強しゆうようじゃき。

    These aren't really pertinent to in-game, but I thought they might be nice for some people to know:

    ぶつりわざ Physical Attacks
    とくしゅわざ Special Attacks
    種族値 (しゅぞくち)Base Stats
    個体値 (こたいち)Individual Values
    努力値 (どうりょくち)Effort Values

    Taken from PokeSav Japanese, so I assume this is the right terminology.

    Sorry about not working on this much in the last few days, but I wrote a brief guide to getting on Wi-Fi. It's the same as in the 4th gen afaik. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to test it but I'll get back with more on it once I've played somebody.

    ありがとう、 張利男さんと TREさん!

    Jumpluff, your wifi section is so perfect. Thank you so much. I was really NOT looking forward to randomly, blindy selecting each option then trying to figure out what it had just done until I had found the 2 or 3 selections I want.

    Thank you.

    Hey jumpluff, do you plan on adding a picture guide to setting up a www.pokemon-gl.com account and logging in to the site with it?

    Even though I can read Japanese (especially easy Hiragana and Katakana in Pokemon), I'm positive this thread will prove useful for me. A-fucking-mazing job Shiki, thanks a million :)

    Much appreciated, this will be so incredibly helpful!

    I did find one small typo: steel type should be はがね, you've got はかね on there. Not really that big of a deal, but I figured I'd mention it so if someone's ctrl-f'ing it they won't come up with nothing. (hagane vs. hakane for those who can't read kana)

    Wrong thread :/

    They boost the power of a certain type of move, then are consumed.
