These pocket mice are actually Pikachu's. They're yellow, they cast lightning bolt very frequently, and they're mice! Not to mention Pokémon is called Pocket Monsters in Japan. Please tell me I'm not the only one who had this realization. Is there any other cameos and puns like this? ~ _~

    Is Pokémon actually called Pocket Monsters in Japan? If I recall its called "Pokémon" which is a conjunction of Pocket and Monster, which the same could be said about the English Name. Definitely a reference though! A recent event straight up referenced Pokémon so that was amusing.

    In Japan, the full name is Pocket Monsters. They shorten it to Pokemon for ease of conversation. just like they shorten Kantai Collection to Kancolle and Gundam Plastic Models to Gunpla.

    Math Dungeon is still one of the longest and most boring dungeons in Erinn, much like the academic topic of Math itself.

    Anyone remembers the old Lorna and Pan videos and this one character named Pikaru. He wears yellow. Black tip antlers. Casts lightning bolt. Hmm...

    I remember someone else making this same topic somewhere else before.

    History truly does repeat itself.

    It was changed into a portmanteau for western releases because of concerns of running afoul of the then-active trademark of Monsters in My Pocket, though was already being referred to informally as such by then.

    Also, can we all agree that Math Dungeon is the most hideous place in the entire game? Everything looks like old urine stains.

    Might as well turn it into an old sewer dungeon. Wait, Rundal actually kinds of fills out the water filled dungeon trope, albeit more cleanly than not, as well as the shadow missions in the waterway.

    What they should do is give it all sorts of different color lights/filters, like an acid trip or a disco.
