Oh the last airbender. Good times.
I did watch it dubbed, but it worked out.

Just out of curiosity, Pokestick, what's your first language?

213604. Well, there's your clue about Pokey's country of origin! That means his native tongue isn't English! If he watched a dub of Avatar: The Last Airbender!

Also, he's European.

213606. His location is The Empire of Scandinavia. What four countries are widely considered a part of Scandinavia?

Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Skyrim.

That last one is interchangeable with various other countries.

It's Sweden, I think. Sweden or Denmark, I remember them saying something about it, but I'm almost sure that it's Sweden. Maybe.

You're correct. Our lovely Pokey's first language is Swedish. ♥

I'd have to admit Pokey's English is doing great since he joined PC. PC taught him how to speak English.

However, I come from an English-speaking country so I didn't need any translators just to speak here.

...That's a pretty dumb assumption, Hikari. I could speak English before I joined here :(
And I've never had to use translators to make normal conversation.

Durr, Swedes speak English like a second official language. At least most. At least many.

And I'm still a bit hurt by Hikari's assumption :/

Came in here seeing Netto's post first, not knowing what was being talked about and immediately lost a few dozen brain cells. Then I looked up and saw the discussion and immediately regret forcing those little buggers to go boom in my brain. :c

In all the time I've seen Pokey post, I've never seen any hint of a translator or a failure in communication except when maybe there's a joke or something involved he shouldn't even be expected to get due to it being a regionally exclusive thing. His English is impeccable, even compared to people who speak English as their primary language.

Here's what I could find of the dub :P
It's not perfect, but since I haven't actually watched the English version I wouldn't know.

Well, I don't watch too many Swedish dubs (this is probably the first), so I don't really have anything to compare it to on a "good or bad" scale, but Toph and Katara have good voice actors, and Sokka fit the character pretty well.

From what you can hear of Katara, she sounded pretty spot on, actually. Sokka needs to sound a bit more goofy though >:B

I agree about Sokka, that was my only gripe with him.
