In case you haven't played (I certainly haven't), apparently the latest Pokémon game has a number of nods to local culture.

Here are a few of the 808 state references, as spelled out by Honolulu Magazine:

  • CHARACTERS IN THE GAME SPEAKING PIDGIN.
  • ONE OF THE NEW POKÉMON IS LITERALLY A LEI.
  • MALASSADAS ARE STILL THE BOMB.

Interesting! May have to give this one a go.
