Sorry if this has been already taken :x

So with the new games, you can change languages, which is new. And I'm a language freak so I'm excited for this! (…right. Guess droomph's alone here again)

So regardless of what you think about languages, are you willing to venture out of the normal language you play games in?

For me, I'll play the game in English to get a sense of the plot and OMG KOREAN?! HOT DAMN I'LL TAKE 4

I'll be playing in English, since that's the only one of said languages I can read.

I'll play the games in English, because I've been playing the English versions of past games since Gen III.

The ability to change languages has probably been the least exciting piece of news I've heard. I guess it'll be useful for those who have foreign parents, and they want their parents to... who am I kidding, no one shares their pokemon game. So yeah, just language lovers.

Edit @droomph: I didn't mean for "just language lovers" to sound as an insult. I'll be more careful with my words in the future.

That's kind of mean. I mean, if you don't find it interesting, don't make us feel like freaks :x

because you know, people find language interesting, they want to learn it.

English will be my primary language of choice since it's the one I understand best, but I'd definitely switch to some others when I'm looking to sneak in some practice. :D

Well I don't speak the languages I'm studying well enough to play video games in them. So I'm sticking to the English games. Plus I'm buying a 3DS in the states, and given the region-lock I don't think a Japanese X (for example) would play on mine.

I'm sort of a "Language fan" myself too, I'll end up buying 7 copies of Pokemon X and 7 copies of Pokemon Y so I can play them each in a different language....

overall I'm going to start playing the game in my native language first, Spanish. I just hope its the Spanish spoken around USA, Mexico.... the Latin American version and not the Iberian version... regardless of accent, I'll play it in Spanish first.

In my second playthrough I'll play it on my 2nd language, English, on my 3rd playthrough in the native game's language Japanese, and after that from 4th to 7th in all other languages.

I would have played in French in my first playthrough but unfortunately Pokémon names will be different & that won't help me memorize them :/
Unfortunately you can't change the language mid-game so it will probably be English for the first playthrough & French for the second

Spanish is my first language, but I'm so used to English, soo that. I *may* play in Spanish when I restart, though.

Nice to see I'm not the only person who wants it in mexican spanish.

You can't change the language once you've selected it, so I probably won't go with anything except English.

It would be nice if you just change whenever you wanted but unfortunately that's not the case.

Yup, same here. I might just screw around with French just to see how good I am when it comes to understanding it, but otherwise I'll play in English. Actually, my first playthrough will probably just be English, then I'll switch over to French since I'll have same base work laid down so if I get stuck I'll still have a general idea of what to do.

If only 普通话 was an option. I'll probably go with Spanish if it's non-Iberean, or French, at least for the second time around. It's always most fun in your native language, because really, I usually play after work or school, and sometimes I'm too tired to be in French/Spanish speaking mode. Now if only I could play in my current project, Ukranian...
