selci'a sera'a lai pokemon

From Lojban
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is a collaboration attempt at consistently translating important terms and lines from the Pokemon games. The discussion page is here

Gen 1 (Red/Blue/Yellow)

(in progress -- varying versions of roms (sorted by UTC datetime) can be found here -- isual Boy Advance is a good way to run them)

This is a direct rip of terms from the Pokémon Red video game, to be translated into Lojban. Inspired by lai pokemon., I (mi'e Joe Anderson) have gotten a ROM editing environment set up to actually create the game, translated. As a proof of concept, I have already translated most of the ptions menu. This was nontrivial, as I constructed my own combination characters for apostrophe+vowel. Also, I have the capability to modify the strings and reassemble the ROM, so the lengths of dialogue strings are not limited.

I'm putting this here in case anyone would like to aid in the translation, and so that I may focus on translating dialogue. I'm not copying over the pokémon names from lai pokemon. into this page to avoid duplication of effort, but for Items and such I am restating them here in full. I expect lai pokemon. to remain useful as a guide for talking about pokémon, whereas this is merely a repository of terms for the game translation. Naming rules vary for each topic.

Hi, I like this project and I'd like to help out. The thought of one day being able to play this game fully in Lojban is very motivating. I can mark all my contributions if you like. --selpa'i

  • Thanks! It's been rather motivating for me, as well. Most of the translations you see here were unplanned; I just couldn't help myself! Anyway, no need to mark contributions; I'm email-watching the page :)


Conditions for item words

  • selbri, 12-character limit ({'a} and other apostrophe-vowel combinations are one character each.)
  • parallel name ending for parallel items, such as potions, balls, heals, etc.
  • for short ones, full gismu and tanru are preferred to rafsi unless it would ruin aforementioned parallelism.
  • In-game, there exists the gismu {pokma} with rafsi -pok- for pokemon. It is defined the same as the real words pokmone / daskyda'u.

Conditions for attack words

  • selbri, 12-character limit ({'a} and other apostrophe-vowel combinations are one character each.)
  • parallel name endings for parallel actions, such as punches, kicks, etc.
  • for short names, full gismu are preferred to rafsi unless it would ruin aforementioned parallelism
  • I'm planning on using "ko'a zo'u broda" for "pokemon used attack!" This gives a lot of freedom in translation. Technically, this even means we can use bridi; however, due to character limitations and the versatility of using selbri, use selbri.
  • Sometimes the selbri must be more descriptive than what it's translating. See "METRONOME" and ulbapedia.

Pallet Town Text (and more Oak Speech)


OAK: Hey! Wait! Don't go out!| la cindu zo'u «lu ju'i do ko denpa .i ko na barkla .i

OAK: It's unsafe! Wild #MON live in tall grass! You need your own #MON for your protection. I know! Here, come with me!| na snura .i lo cilce pokma cu xabju lo rajycla srasu .i do nitcu lo nu do ponse lo pokma kei lo nu se bandu .i ua .i ko mi jersi li'u»

I'm raising #MON too! When they get strong, they can protect me!| mi ji'a rirni lo pokma .i py ca lo nu ba'o tsali binxo cu ka'e jai bandu mi

Technology is incredible! You can now store and recall items and #MON as data via PC!| lo ca zbaske ku se zanza'a .i ka'e skami setca je cpacu lo se pilno .e lo pokma xe be'i lo datni

OAK #MON RESEARCH LAB| me la cindu ku ke pokma lanli dinju

MOM: Right. All boys leave home some day. It said so on TV. PROF. OAK, next door, is looking for you.| la mamta zo'u «lu .i'a .i ro nanla cu cliva lo zdani ca pa djedi .i la'e di'u se cusku lo se tivni .i la cindu noi zvati lo jibni zdani cu sisku do li'u»

MOM: <Player>! You should take a quick rest.| la mamta zo'u «lu doi <kelci> .e'u do ze'i surla li'u»

MOM: Oh good! You and your #MON are looking great! Take care now!| la mamta zo'u «lu ui za'a do .e lo do pokma cu simlu lo ka prane kanro .i ko ba capyju'i

There's a movie on TV. Four boys are walking on railroad tracks. I better go too.| ti ve tivni lo skina .i vo nanla cu cadzu lo te trene .i si'a .ei ru'e mi cliva

Oops, wrong side. of the tv| .u'u naldrani mlapau

<Rival>: Yo <Player>! Gramps isn't around! | la <jivna> zo'u «lu doi <kelci> la pafpa'u cu na zvati ti li'u»

<Rival>: Heh, I don't need to be greedy like you! Go ahead and choose, <Player>! |

<Rival>: My #MON looks a lot stronger. |

Those are # BALLs. They contain #MON! | ta pokyboi .i ta vasru lo pokma

So! You want the fire #MON, CHARMANDER? |

So! You want the water #MON, SQUIRTLE? |

So! You want the plant #MON, BULBASAUR? |

This #MON is really energetic! |

<Player> received a <Pokemon>! |

That's PROF.OAK's last #MON! |

OAK: Now, <Player>, which #MON do you want? |

OAK: If a wild #MON appears, your #MON can fight against it! |

OAK: <Player>, raise your young #MON by making it fight! |

OAK: Oh, <Player>! How is my old #MON? Well, it seems to like you a lot. You must be talented as a #MON trainer! What? You have something for me? <Player> delivered OAK's PARCEL. |

Ah! This is the custom #BALL I ordered! Thank you! |

  1. MON around the world wait for you, <Player>! |

OAK: You can't get detailed data on #MON by just seeing them. You must catch them! Use these to capture wild #MON. <Player> got 5 # BALLs! |

When a wild #MON appears, it's fair game. Just throw a #BALL at it and try to catch it! This won't always work, though. A healthy #MON could escape. You have to be lucky! |

OAK: Come see me sometimes. I want to know how your #DEX is coming along. |

OAK: Good to see you! How is your #DEX coming? Here, let me take a look! |

It's encyclopedia-like, but the pages are blank! |

? | pau/mo (I have no idea where this is in-game)

PROF.OAK is the authority on #MON! Many #MON trainers hold him in high regard! | la cindu cu certu lo pokma .i so'i pokytro cy sinma

<Rival>: Gramps! I'm fed up with waiting! | la <jivna> zo'u «lu doi pafpa'u .i denpa .a'enai li'u»

OAK: <Rival>? Let me think... Oh, that's right, I told you to come! Just wait! Here, <Player>! There are 3 #MON here! Haha! They are inside the # BALLs. When I was young, I was a serious #MON trainer! In my old age, I have only 3 left, but you can have one!

OAK: Hey! Don't go away yet! |

<Rival>: I'll take this one, then! |

<Rival> received a <pokemon>! | la <jivna> cu cpacu lo <pokma>

<Rival>: Wait <Player>! Let's check out our #MON! Come on, I'll take you on! |

WHAT? Unbelievable! I picked the wrong #MON! |

<Rival>: Yeah! Am I great or what? |

<Rival>: Okay! I'll make my #MON fight to toughen it up! <Player>! Gramps! Smell you later! |

<Rival>: Gramps! | la <jivna> zo'u «lu ju'i pafpa'u

<Rival>: What did you call me for? | .i mu'i ma do mi klacpe li'u»

OAK: Oh, right! I have a request of you two. On the desk there is my invention, #DEX! It automatically records data on #MON you've seen or caught! It's a hi-tech encyclopedia! | la cindu zo'u «lu

OAK: <Player> and <Rival>! Take these with you! <Player> got #DEX from OAK! | li'u» la <kelci> cpacu lo pokste la cindu

To make a complete guide on all the #MON in the world... That was my dream! But, I'm too old! I can't do it! So, I want you two to fulfill my dream for me! Get moving, you two! This is a great undertaking in #MON history! |

<Rival>: Alright Gramps! Leave it all to me! <Player>, I hate to say it, but I don't need you! I know! I'll borrow a TOWN MAP from my sis! I'll tell her not to lend you one, <Player>! Hahaha! |

I study #MON as PROF.OAK's AIDE. |

  1. DEX completion is: \ <value> #MON seen \ <value> #MON owned \ PROF.OAK's Rating: |

You still have lots to do. Look for #MON in grassy areas! |

You're on the right track! Get a FLASH HM from my AIDE! |

You still need more #MON! Try to catch other species! |

Good, you're trying hard! Get an ITEMFINDER from my AIDE! |

Looking good! Go find my AIDE when you get 50! |

You finally got at least 50 species! Be sure to get EXP.ALL from my AIDE! |

Ho! This is getting even better! |

Very good! Go fish for some marine #MON! |

Wonderful! Do you like to collect things? |

I'm impressed! It must have been difficult to do! |

You finally got at least 100 species! I can't believe how good you are! |

You even have the evolved forms of #MON! Super! |

Excellent! Trade with friends to get some more! |

Outstanding! You've become a real pro at this! |
