Hey all, I’ve been playing the new Pokemon game, which means it’s time for a new edition of grammar questions! I’ve done this a few times now where I pick a few sentences that have confused me from various games, thanks to everybody who has pitched in on these.
Spoken by a trainer right after you defeat them. I don’t recognize this いっちゃお construction, so it’s throwing me for a loop.
Spoken by a friend after inspecting an ancient statue. This is a usage of より that I can’t work out. Furthermore, I’m not sure why this is coming right after the が particle. I’ve never seen より used like this.
Spoken after defeating the gym leader in a challenge and receiving the gym badge (ジムバッジ). のに seems to contrast with ふさわしい to me. Because you’ve received the badge, you are worthy, right? Why would it be in spite of it? I wonder what the idea is here.
Wanted a gut check on this one. It’s spoken by a little girl, so it’s plausible that she really is just saying “An ocean? It isn’t a mountain.” but that’s also kind of hilarious so I thought maybe I was missing some nuance or something.
Thanks all, feel free to throw in your own examples / questions!
