    It's horrendous.

    It's a miracle I stopped following once the god awful Battle Frontier dub appeared. The Japanese Version is 10x better, if i hadn't converted over to it I wouldn't have managed to maintain my enjoyment of the franchise at all.

    To be fair, the Japanese title was essentially the same, focusing on Hydreigon being a secret weapon

    He isn't bashing Cameron's Secret Weapon, he's just saying that the recent title could have replaced that instead.

    It's still kind of a huge spoiler, duh.

    Huh, what's the spoiler?

    None of us are even talking about spoilers.

    I don't mind the BF dubs or subsequent ones anymore, but I will say the 4Kids dub was better overall to me (despite the countless mistakes and editing). They had some really get music composers, voice acting (though I'm fine with TPCi's VAs now, they've never been able to grab me or touch me emotionally the way the 4Kids VAs did over these last seven years), and some nice dub scripts for TRio.

    I really like the original JPN version as well, and it's kinda revived my enjoyment of the series even though I never really checked it out until Unova, but I can't find any of it for Hoenn, BF, or Sinnoh. I've watched the Kanto, Johto, and BW arcs in JPN w/subs, though.

    TPCi is not being very creative here, that's for sure. I guess the evolution refers to Cameron's Riolu evolving into a Lucario, though. I can see where they are coming from.

    About 80% of the titles of the whole bw saga have been lackluster.

    And when they try to be creative, they try too hard (though some are good).

    Agreed. They do have good ones, but for the most part, they're a little too trans-literal or too hard at being creative.

    Well, Pokemon USA/TCPi brought this on themselves when they ultimately showed "You Know Who" in their promotion for Adventures in Unova. Before the season premiered, of course.

        Spoiler:- You Know Who:


    Yeah, I also wasn't meaning to bash the title for "Cameron's Secret Weapon" by no means. If the episode focuses a majority on Hydreigon, I can't complain.

    "Strong Strategy Steals the Show", hearing it from Sarah, was probably the best title I've heard this season so far.

    Those aren't painfully bad at least. The ampharos one should be an excuse to get a pun thrown in with it having zero plot relevance.
    I wonder how the charizard one will be....hopefully not something just like "reunited with an old friend".

    This just further proves that the writers are running out of ideas when it comes to dub titles. I think they're dumber than the original series' first episodes. "There's a New Gym Leader in town"? Really??

    I think it's supposed to be a play on "There's a new sheriff In town", not that it makes it much better.

    These three are the standard sort of titles the dub makes all the time, you either get used to it or stop watching the dub.

    I think the worst title for me has definetly been 'A Unova League Evolution', it could have been so much better. It could have been right.

    "New Places - Familiar Faces" is a pretty good title; I love the rhyme in that one. The other two are pretty standard, but they're not bad either.

    Oh yay, more episode titles! Didn't notice them all come in besides the first one with Team Plasma.

    Eh, they're all moderate, so nothing to complain about. "The Light of Floccesy Ranch" sounds nice though.

    I sooo look forward to the next title being released.

    I wouldn't want the job of coming up with these titles after this many episodes.

    true, it would get hard to make them new and interesting. the current one's are okay, nothing special. team Plasma's Pokémon Power Plot! sounds cool though.

    Always watching. Always waiting. Never truly at peace in a realm of its own.

    Not a very creative title. Are they getting lazy?
