I really need to find a full text dump of any Japanese Gen I Pokemon game (don't ask why )
Any attempts of Googling it failed miserably, even when I entered the keywords in Japanese.
I also recall seeing such a text dump at least once in my life, so I'm sure it exists.
Normally I'd just attempt to make my own dump, but my knowledge of Japanese is really limited and I wouldn't really be able to separate the real ingame text from false-positives. If someone already made it, this would save me a lot of work.
The question is: are there any text dumps of Japanese Gen I Pokemon games? And where can I find them?
I'm afraid I don't know, sorry.
I remember creating a Japanese Red/Green text dump which I posted on Skeetendo
, but as I remember it wasn't organized and likely had a lot of garbage text in it. The file unfortunately may no longer exist as the link to it became unavailable and I'm not sure if I have a backup, though it's possible somebody else may have downloaded it.
Some of the text can be found on the Japanese Pokémon Red disassembly
, and this useful thread
but the text added on to the Japanese Pokémon Red disassembly project likely isn't exhaustive, nor is the text on the thread.
There may be a chance a Japanese fan has created a Red/Green text dump, but I'm unsure what term is used in the Japanese community to describe a text dump. Hopefully with a bit of research one like this could be found.
Alternatively I suggest contacting MeseInsanity
. He knows Japanese, may be a native speaker and may be able to help you out with a joint text dump project.
