Pokémon D/P anime - Battle! Paul Music (Unreleased)

ash-chosenone:

THEY DID IT.

I’ve been looking for this theme on its own for years, but alas, being a dub track, was never coming out. Upon my request, Pokeli recreated this theme from Sinnoh League Victors and it turned out beautifully!

Guys, give this a listen. Dude deserves props for this.

I’m seeing lots of posts about race in the Pokemon world and…

I don’t know. When I was younger, I assumed every one in Pokemon was American, not necessarily white, but definitely America (thanks to the Americanizing of the anime). But now that I’m older, to me, every one is undoubtedly Japanese. Or at least, just about every one from Kanto - Sinnoh, with some exceptions (like Phoebe).

I mean, come on. The regions are based after regions in Japan, with Kanto even being named after one. Not sure about the rest. Most of the characters have Japanese names, and they do Japanese things. To me, it’s Kanto - Sinnoh is Japan, and if not that, then definitely Asian. I can’t see how that would be disputable. 

Now, with Kalos and Isshu, you can definitely argue aren’t Asian. And the way I see it, they’re not. Just like how Kanto - Sinnoh is Japan to me, Isshu is America and Kalos is France. My personal headcanon is even that Kanto - Sinnoh speaks Japanese, while English is the most widely used language in Isshu and French is spoken in Kalos. This just isn’t seen in the anime though because obviously it would complicate things. Although, the idea that just about every one in Isshu and Kalos perhaps speak Japanese as a second language wouldn’t be a bad idea. 

So yeah. To me, Kanto - Sinnoh is basically Japan but not, while Isshu is America but not and Kalos is France but not.

I think we should talk more about the possibility that Ash is a POC.

I mean, Ash is olive-skinned with dark hair and brown eyes, and we’ve never seen his father. You could say Ash is simply tan, but you could also just as easily say Ash is a POC with a white mother.

possiblilty?

I’d like to think it’s a certainty.  He’s from a region called the Kanto region, based directly from the region in Japan (called the Kanto region nonetheless).  His favorite foods are traditional Japanese based and he’s attended local festivals that are obviously Japanese-inspired.  Japanese people can also be quite fair-skinned, so I’d like to think his mother is also a person of color.

I want to erase “possibility” because it’s already a problem that artists white-wash his skin color constantly.  And it’s a pretty big deal that a character as globally popular as Ash is a person of color.

Not to erase any “headcanons” or whatever since it’s not confirmed, but there is such strong evidence that Ash is Japanese/Asian that anything contrary to that just does not bide well with me.
