    I’m so happy Fiona is finally going to find that missing Chaos Emerald.

    By the time of 119, Bunnie had long since had her robot limbs replaced because her immune system was starting to reject them, which effectively made reversal impossible* because her new limbs were never organic to begin with.
    *barring anomalies like the Naugus magic that miraculously restored her post-Genesis.

    In Black and White (or B2W2, I forget), you could get hints on how to evolve certain Pokemon from Professor Juniper when you talk to her on the Xtransceiver. They should put something like that in the games again.

    Considering the pages he used to showcase foreign translations of “The Die is Cast” were clearly direct scans from the comic itself, I’m guessing no.

    Considering the comic’s still doing yearly arcs, and that 25 will supposedly be the first issue of year 3, I’m not sure.

    Ahhh...
    This version’s okay, I guess.
    Original’s still the absolute best.

    That reminds me: make Salcole fully canon, if not much more explicit to the point that it’s hard to deny.

    Oh, this topic is a thing, interesting, let's see if my hunch is right...
    Well, don't mind if I butt in, I can tell you the little I know about this stuff... 😤
     
    So, by no means claim I to know a lot, but I suppose I can fill at least few blanks since I ended up borning up here anyway.
    The run in Finland was a pretty short one, only couple of years or something I've heard. I've seen few early issues couple of years back in one book event of sorts and I managed to buy one, sadly most of them were like 10€ per issue which was a bit too much for my wallet but I managed to buy one anyway, I think I've mentioned this sometime before in the forums...
    Okay, the comics were published in Finland, by Semic (which was around and published other translated comics as well, like Spirou albums, until Egmont bought it or something like that, I'm not too sure but Egmont publishes some stuff they did back when they were around) around mid 90's, which was probably a bad time considering the economy of Finland back then, depression was still a thing back then I think. Anyway, the issue I have is dated to 1994, cost 12 marks, was labeled as issue 3 but had the cover of mini-series issue 2 while having stories from issue #3 (the 2 longer ones), and smaller ones about Tails going to his "first solo adventure" (from original issue #4)where he overheard stuff from the picnic Robotnik threw outside with the robots, and the one-page ones where Sally used Sonic's quills as an info board, and where they took the group picture. Kind of a mixture isn't it... 
    Needless to say the translation is pretty... hilarious, like, you remember in that bomb story Rotor said he could make a James Cagney impression (that brings my mind that Nik Kershaw song "James Cagney"), well, in Finnish version the name was localised into this one Finnish singer (Kaija Koo) and in one part he was pretty much citing the lyrics of this one song, I suppose this was used because it kind of fits in the context considering the rough translation to that part would be "oh yeah, come closer baby come closer baby" or something... that's pretty much the only logical answer I can come up with about how James Cagney transformed into a female singer. This becomes pretty interesting as you can see... Sonic was "that darned hedgehog" or something akin to that... Another person whose name was changed was from that Tails story, Michael Jordan became Antti Kasvio... who is an ex-swimmer it seems, and it seems he was pretty good, go figure, these comics teach me stuff I should prolly know since my home country and stuff.
    There was this small reader corner as well, where readers could ask about stuff, and there were even some kind of game hints thing in it. One kid was sad because their family couldn't probably afford to order the book (but they could still buy the individual issues) since that depression, and the corner holder was trying to convince the kid to try and get them to order it anyway since it's Sonic. The kid actually puts it best; when reading your book one cannot read without laughing, the thing is even, you know, not in the bad way, cheesier than in English come to think of it.
    I've been checking out whenever it's possible if I could get other issues as well, but I'm not that good at buying on the internet so it's mostly on the events where I get any chances... but yeah, I have this one, where one reader asks who Scott Shaw is since he draws like an artist...
    Oh geez, it says in here people have asked to get Sonic visit their birthday parties trough the reader corner...
     
    Fun fact, our market magazine stands actually imported the English Archie Sonic until it ceased to exist, I'm not too sure when they started but I recall seeing some forum discussions about it and if I remember them right they were talking about things that happened around the 200's or a bit later.
    Haven't seen the IDW ones anywhere though, cough cough...
     
    I can try to answer for more questions if you get any, I'm not sure about how much I can help but with questions about that one issue I think I can help the very least.
    And this was just something quick I made as quickly as possible, I prolly forgot a lot but I'm in a kind of hurry and I'll get back to it if needed, as you can see this is what happens when I get a possibility to talk about anything, everything gets long when I write...

    Remember how in Gen III it was possible for Azurill to change gender upon evolution because of the messed up gender ratio?
    ...shame they couldn’t incorporate into other Pokemon. Like, imagine if there was a clownfish Pokemon that turned from male to female upon evolving?

    I'd end it with Eggman's death.
    Then Sonic wakes up and realizes everything post-reboot was a bad dream.
