Nob Ogasawara, translator of Pokemon games told that his services are no longer needed

Posted by Sunain | September 3rd 2008 at 01:26 PM EDT

Nintendo has told Nob Ogasawara, the translator of Pokemon games, that his services are no longer needed. Nintendo instead plans to do any translation work internally. Below is the alleged post by Nob Ogasawara.

"So, after nearly a dozen years and nineteen Pokemon games later, I am out. I was told that my services were no longer needed because translation work will be handled internally hereafter. They assured me it's not a quality issue, but because of some bureaucratic thing.

OK, cool, whatever. As a career-long-and-not-about-to-change freelancer, I always expected this day to come, but not for this reason. But such is life.
I'll always be grateful for the incredible opportunity the franchise gave me. I mean, sheesh, as the sole translator on those games, my words went out to tens of millions of people, perhaps even more, since all the Euro translations were based on the localized-by-me English text. Tens of millions? Maybe in the hundreds of millions?

That's mindboggling for an average shmoe of an immigrant kid who grew up in a Canadian suburb. It amazes me how many people its reached and how deep it has penetrated into the sociocultural fabric of... OK, enough of that grad paper horseshit. Still, whenever I see some little kid playing a Pokemon... gently caress, yeah, I still get a surge of pride.

I hope people enjoyed what I did. Or at least didn't find it all that insufferable. As corny as it sounds, I really did pour all my love in to those games. If it helped brighten up some kid's day, then yeah, go me.

It was one gently caress of a great ride while it lasted. Thank you for being there and sharing it with me. Though, being here, I felt like a fraud since y'all's knowledge run far, far deeper than mine. You deserve better than me.
So here's to continued and greater success of the franchise in the decades to come.

I remain a fan of Pokemon.
Nob Ogasawara"

Become a legend in your own time when you play the Pokémon TCG: Diamond & Pearl—Legends Awakened expansion! Powerful Legendary Pokémon like Regigigas and Heatran, more amazing Pokémon LV.X, than ever before, and a host of other game-changing Pokémon will make your battles even more epic. And with new Trainer and Supporter cards, you will awaken the legend within yourself. The legends are rising to the challenge—will you rise with them?


Metal Surge Theme Deck
Harness the strength of a volcano with the Metal Surge theme deck. Heatran's Smelt Poké-Power will help get it fully loaded, then for each Metal Energy it has, it cranks the damage into overdrive with its Heavy Metal attack. For the final encore, bring out Metagross to call down its devastating Extra Comet Punch attack. Besides doing hefty damage the first time you use it, that power gets doubled on the next! With the Metal Surge theme deck, you'll have the competition surging… to run away!

Bombardment Theme Deck
The Bombardment theme deck will bring out the ruler in you! Regigigas commands from deep inside Snowpoint Temple, and it definitely isn't going down without a fight! Its Recover Mechanism Poké-Power gets rid of all unwanted Special Conditions while its Gigaton Punch attack could do extensive damage to any Pokémon waiting in the wings. Then watch as Gliscor swoops in with its Burning Poison attack and really piles on the damage, leaving your opponent's Pokémon Burned or Poisoned—the choice is up to you! When you play with the Bombardment theme deck, you'll spread the damage far and wide!

Each theme deck contains 1 complete 60-card deck. Many of the cards exist in multiples to provide a more enjoyable playing experience.
