I don't know if I should even be annoyed by this, but whilst reading an article on pokemon.com I saw that the english names for FR and LG were FireRed and LeafGreen...but the thing is, I don't really like the idea of combining the two words together. It makes the titles of the games sound less noble, for lack of a better word...aren't "Fire Red" and "Leaf Green" a bit more pleasant to see than the words sandwiched together like they are? Is this too little a thing to complain about? Sorry if it is...I just found it a bit strange that they did that.

o.O; It is kinda weird...but it's not a big problem, is it? All that matters is that we get to play the game. ^_^;;

That doesn't sound like something they would do...what the URL of the article?

EDIT: I found it:
http://www.pokemon.com/games/videogames/index.asp?articleID=518

I'm not annoyed with the new names. It's all right in my opinion, because the first two games were Red and Green in Japan, and these new titles are [in a sense] paying tribute to the first few titles that brought the fame of Pokemon.

Oh, don't get me wrong, it's not big enough of a problem to not make me buy the games...of course I'm going to buy FR/LG :P

It's okay to be annoyed by that. Lots of minor things annoy me on a daily basis n.n Besides, a space would make it seem more civilized...plus, its setting a bad example for little kids who are learning to read who buy it. Of coarse, if your just learning to read, I sapose pokemon video games which is mostly reading isn't much help.
Actually, maybe it'd be alot of help! Learn to read by pokemon! OMG! I just got an idea for a franchise!...

That's how my brother learned to read...I'm not kidding! He liked the games, but I didn't wanna read everything to him...
I agree, it kinda is...annoying. A space looks better.

I actually like titles to look like that than having a space in it...maybe I'm the wierd one for having a clear preference...

It could be worse... They could have named the games programmer-style: "fireRed" and "leafGreen."

When you see the logo for the games, it doesn't look all that horrible. But, on the other hand, and you only see regular text, the name looks somewhat unprofessional, like a typo. But, who cares, let's just hope the game is good $_$

Nyeh, in Japanese it wasn't nonseperated... (only because Japanese characters have no spaces XD).

It's capitalized, at least.

FireRed and LeafGreen? No problem there...
