Default Re: Foreign languages in Fanfiction

The only integration of real-world languages in my fanfiction is probably the region of Moga, used for names. Mostly I clump all sorts of names from different parts of the world into the Pokémon World as one entity, but after creating that region to justify strange surnames in canon roleplaying, I felt that the Japanese-named characters (and no, for you anti-Wapanese activists, my stories aren't overrun by them) ought to have their own region to blame when they have names that are more drastically different than the rest of the world. This region, as a result, was behind such wonders as Hikaru and Rin. Otherwise, my only foreign language is the one we've all heard before in some form or another, Pokémian. (It's got a lot of dialects.)
