I had no idea about that! :O

Did you know;

In the Japanese versions of Pokemon, the attack "Night Slash" is called "Blade Testing". This is a reference to an old practice that some immoral samurai held to test their new swords. They would wait alongside a road at night for a random passer-by, then attack them with the intention to kill. Night slash also has a higher than average critical hit rate, which could be another nod to the story, as the passer-by would be defenseless.
