More Pokemon And some Harvest Moon

Found an interesting book today that seems to fully explore the localisation and cultural odor of pokemon. Need to read some more of this.

Also what was brought to my attention by a friend was the interestinng changes made to the harvest moon games, such as the option for same sex relationships in Harvest Moon DS Cute.
