I am not so sure pokemon was ever really so big in Iceland, it seems to have come there late in the beginning since I think gameboys came late, they never released the dubbed episodes for buying (only the movies) from what I heard, and of course videogames are really expensive there... stuff like that probably helps why, maybe they don't have the same nostalgia-interest as us hahah. And it's sad to say but personally I have never actually managed to find any Icelanders willing to work with any sort of Icelandic-related project for long, they just don't seem to think it is as necessary to make more things be in Icelandic as I as a learner do so they get bored fast. I keep getting people who have a kind of fleeting "sure I'll help" and then give up within a week or they don't want to from the beginning because they don't think anyone would even do anything with the end result.
Sometimes it's really difficult to get people to do things since they themselves only ex. go online and do stuff in English, and they don't think about learners and instead only think about the other native speakers who would also just go online and use English. I have seen a lot of "make comics in Icelandic? why would I do that, no one would read them, they need to be in English instead" sorts of things for example, even though they could just do two versions, one in Icelandic and one in English.
I had hoped if I posted here (and in other places) that someone would quickly come along and say they or their friend could help, but I guess not. Especially since in the end, it got entirely translated to Finnish through my initial advertising and now all it needs is the text to be put into the game for there to be a Finnish version. If anyone sees this in the future, there are plenty of other games that could be translated too, such as Chrono Trigger which I am right now trying to get translated to Swedish. Or if you are good at putting text into games, you could work on that side of it and help us a lot.
