Just a detail: the word for past is the masculine "pasado", pasada means something like "left behind" or "no longer in" (as well as slang for "amazing"). So she's not so much Professor Past as "Professor left behind" xD Or maybe spoiled or past her sell-by date. Poor woman.

In Spanish she's Albora (Dawn) and the man is Turo /from future obviously) so the idea is right, though.

OH! I was so fixated on the unfortunate implications of both professors' names that I didn't even notice they were derivated from the Spanish words for "past" and "future." Still, I hadn't thought of the other unfortunate readings you brought up, so thanks for the laughs. xD

As I have said before, being a native Spanish speaker, the names of both Professors suggested to me that they are evil because:
-Sada reminds me of "sadism" and all its related words, and we all know some teachers can be quite... well, sadistic. It also brings to mind the historical origin of the word - the Marquis de Sade. Clearly this woman is disturbed and should not be allowed near children.
-Turo is a more obscure one; his name is just one "r" away from "turro," which is a Rioplatense Spanish equivalent for English insults like "jerk," "a**hole," "a**hat" and the like. Add to that, there's no distinction between the two types of "r" in English, so both are pronounced exactly the same. Basically, his name is Professor A**hole, and therefore he shouldn't be near kids either.

If the English translation team is going to be this obvious, I fear for future character names.

Can't wait until I'm playing the Spanish version and professor Turo tells me "coge un Pokémon". I swear I will die from laughter.

I was thinking more along the lines of "Blue must be laughing his a** off because now there's a character canonically called Jerkface/A**hole/etc" but this is valid too, lol

Noticed the different battle user-interface.

Took a page from Arceus: Legends's design. Moved the wild Pokemon's particulars to above it, rather than the top-right.
