So Now that the Teasm Rocket Voice Actor's aren't being used a lot, what happens to their pay? is it lowered? or do they have a set salary?
On context of the anime a " Filler Episode " is any episode that nothing of consequence happens.
Basically you can choose not to watch this episode and not miss any of the story. Which episodes qualify as Filler varies from person to person. The general assumption is that any episode that Ash or friend do not participate in a tournament, does not win a Badge/Ribbon/Symbol/Trinket, catch a Pokemon, or evolve a Pokemon, or expand on a plot point is Filler. The writers occasionally sneak an evolution or new move into an episode that'd otherwise be Filler to make them more interesting. This has become a lot more common in recent regions.
I think it's also important to point out that some people think that "filler" is synonymous with "bad", but that can't be further from the truth. There are tons of bad episodes that are entirely relevant to the current plot of the anime (or whatever time period we're talking about), and there's great episodes that are entirely irrelevant to the plot of the anime from whatever time period.
I think it should also be noted that a lot of people class filler as different things, but overall it is most agreed as an episode that if you missed, wouldn't affect you storyline wise since nothing important or of development happened.

When Misty is about to depart, and her music montage plays, at 1:43 there is a scene with Ash crying on the ground in the rain, with the gang watching him, what episode was this and what happened?

Hey, everyone. I have a question about something. How does one get to battle the Champion in the anime. In the anime, they say to get to the Champion League, you must win the Pokemon League at your own region so that suggests that Ash ever wants to become a Pokemon master, he has to beat the Indigo League. So does that mean the order of events Ash has to go through to become Champion are 1)Win Indigo League 2)Win Champion League 3)Beat Elite 4 and then finally 4)Beat Champion to become champion? Is this correct?
I don't know if Ash would immediately replace the Champion the first time he defeats them though. So far, the only ones we've seen fighting the Champion Master for their title - and not just a casual battle like Paul VS Cynthia - were established Elite Four members (Lucian, Flint, Aaron). Maybe you get the right to become an Elite Four member yourself once you defeat all of them in the Champion League, and then, whenever you feel ready, you challenge the Champion Master. I might be forgetting something, but I think the anime hasn't cleared that up yet.
Now I have a question, in yesterday's dub episode, Ash battled Adler. Of course the battle was stopped due to him sleeping, but hypothetically if Ash had won, would that make him Champion??
If Ash is the counterpart to Red, and Gary is to Blue, and both lost the Kanto League, who is the champion then?
I have a question.
I vagely remember being told/watched that Team Rocket were falsely reported for being the ones to take down Team Magma/Aqua and Galactic, hence the reason Giovanni picked them to go to Unova to find Team Plasma.
What episodes was it stated in both AG and DP that they defeated them themselves (even though they didn't)?
What episodes was it stated that Team Rco
The TR trio reported to GIovanni (I think, specificlally, Jessie did) that they took down Galactic all by themselves, and that's probably why Giovanni gave them the super important Unova assignment. Whatever the last episode of DP is. (193?)
Not sure about AG and Aqua/Magma.
Hi all. I'm Jean-Paul...avid Pokéfan and Serebii forum reader, first time poster. I'm breaking my long-time lurking to ask a question posed by my girlfriend, who's not into anime...she tolerates my otaku ways (and I love her for it), but she does tend to mock sometimes...
Anyway, I was rewatching some older episodes, and while Freeze Frame was on, she took a look at Misty's outfit and asked, "Doesn't she ever get cold? Her and the blue-haired one [Dawn, I'm assuming] are always walking around wearing next to nothing. I'd be freezing my [expletive] off."
She was being rhetorical, but I thought it was a fair question, especially since I can't remember a time when either of them did seem to care about the cold while the much-more-sensibly-dressed Ash and Brock regularly get frozen for a gag. The odd episode has them at least put on jackets, but even that's not consistent. So...DID either of them ever get cold? If so, when? I'd love to be able to pull out the episodes just to prove a point
Snow Way Out for Misty. Or whatever episode it was that Ash got separated and nearly froze to death around that time.
Since Dawn changed into Winter Clothes for the Snowpoint arch we can assume she was cold. You just don't alter your wardrobe for cold weather for giggles.
Anyway, I chalk the main cast's ability to wear next to nothing in even freezing weather to Pokemon World humans being much more durable then real humans. These people can take Fire to the face, electrical shocks, punches from Pokemon who can tear steel, and all other types of injuries that would be fatal to a typical human, Living alongside creatures like Pokemon has got to cause some sort of evolutionary resistance to their attacks. Resistance to heat and cold comes with the package.
Two quick questions:
1 - Do the dubbers actually have to change the original raw music for any particular reason? The japanese music has always been the best imo, but why the dubbers switch bgm over and ruin it is beyond me.
2 - Why do/do you think, the dubbers switch the bgm over?
2) They switch the BGM because it's cheaper to create your own than buying the rights from a foreign nation like Japan. Sometimes, they think that their music may fit better in a scene or they don't want to include pieces with lyrics. Maybe they don't have the rights to buy that particular piece. They do things for a variety of reasons.

The guy who did the interview with PokeBeach said that there are special laws protecting Japanese music that may make it harder (ie more expensive) to be licensed elsewhere to protect it from being abused in marketing, like appearing in drug ads or whatever.
Personal theory: The dub by TPCi is operated on a budget and they have a fixed amount they can spend on music. I imagine, when they can, they just license it, but in scenes with more extended musical pieces, I bet it is just cheaper to use an old dub piece or produce a new one.
I have several friends in the music industry, both working the desks and business end AND on the music end. No-name bands often get calls from companies that air commercials, looking for a certain "style" of music to use in commercials. Led Zeppelin is very expensive to license, so instead of using Stairway to Heaven or Whole Lotta' Love, they'll go find any number of no-name heavy metal bands that make decent music, cut them a big check, and then put that in their car commercial or Doritos commercial or whatever.
Any ideas if the missing Team Rocket vs Team Plasma episodes will air this year?
