Missing announcer phrases in Pokemon Stadium (Int.)
« on: September 09, 2015, 06:38:54 am »
I don't believe this is a glitch, so I'm posting this in the general Pokemon Discussion section instead. If it turns out it is a glitch, feel free to move it.


So for some reason in this particular version of Pokemon Stadium (the International version, NTSC to be specific) I've been playing, I've noticed two things:

1. Jynx is black instead of purple. I believe I already read somewhere that this is normal for older releases of the game, but the most notable thing is...

2. The announcer is missing at least two phrases. I noticed it immediately because one of them was always really satisfying to hear, and... he never says it in the version of the game I'm playing. In the cartridge I had a long time ago, he did.

The two phrases I'm referring to are "Taken down on the word go!" and "There's been major action already!".

I'mma cite Werster's newly-uploaded Pokemon Stadium speedrun since it's what reminded me. You can hear both of the mentioned phrases at 3:03 to 3:13 or so. There may actually be more as well, but these two are the ones I recognized immediately being missing. Glad there's a video handy, because when I first realized they were missing, I thought I was just going insane or something.

I've never heard anything about this, which is why I'm so curious. It seems to funny to just add phrases in later copies (? I'm assuming later since Jynx's design was changed) of the game. Just for more variety, I guess...?
" 'What will do?' Oh god, I have no idea. What will do? At this point, what can do? And when I saw had no energy left to battle, I knew there was nothing could do."

According to DAT-O-MATIC, there are three revisions of the American version (1, 2, 3) and two of the English European version (1, 2). That might explain the differences you're noticing.
