Default MINNESOTA?!?! Where's that in the Pokemon World?

I was watching pokemon the first movie, and near the beggining when they have to get to MewTwo's island team rocket disquises themselves as vikings so that ash and friends will get on board. Misty says, "I didn't know vikings still existed." and then as says, "Yeah, but they mostly live in Minnesota"

Now keep in mind this movie didn't have that many GS pokemon in it, only a few, Snubble, Maril, and Donphan... maybe one more, but they hadn't released the next game yet cause I remember thinking, "Wow, neat new Pokemon" Now that brings up the issue... maybe there's the regular world without pokemon? I mean that's how you can have Dog species of pokemon or Cat pokemon. Bird, Fish, etc...

Or maybe it was just a slip up by nintendo and 4 kids... eh... it is 4 kids, and they probably never expected them to think about it... well commercial's over, so I'm back to watching it...

Yeah, man! Rock on to the US of A!
[/hippy mode]

Yeah, Pokémon did do that to other things. Like in Red and Blue, there's a sign outside Lt. Surge's gym and it reads:
"VERMILION CITY
POKéMON GYM
LEADER: LT. SURGE
The Lightning
American!"

So maybe, back when there was only Kanto; Nintendo considered it as America. Seeing as how the First Movie came out before GSC

I'll screenshot the sign later =P

It was just a pun *sigh* (and a bad one at that)

Don't let the Minnesota line in the first Pokemon film dub get you confused. I'm willing to bet dollars to donuts that was not the original line, but 4Kids once again inserted their own stuff in there instead, just for fun. Figures. But as I said in a different thread, I always picture the Pokemon regions being part of this world. So in my mind, Minnesota is in the same spot in the Pokemon world as it is here.

*ish from Minnesota*

Well, I don't see any Vikings, but I do see a lot of backwoods morons, hypocrisy, gas stations, bigotry, rampant homophobia...but most of all, NOT A DAMN THING.

Hey Kan, I know this must sound random...but I was in Minnesota recently. I drove north from Iowa all the way up to Duluth. While I was there I thought to myself "It's so wierd being in Minnesota; I wonder where Kan is?"

Was I close to where you live?

If you went anywhere near Park Rapids on your way up, then yes.
