Isn't the English Dub 13 episodes behind the Japanese show? That's not too far behind at all.
It isn't THAT far behind, but we're getting the new games the same time as Japan. If they don't catch up, as I said they'll be what, 3 months into the new games when the new show JUST starts?
so... who/what was helping Ash and co. deflect Pikachu and Axew's attacks? It looked like either Stunfisk/Emolga and Oshawott/Palpitoad with hydropump?
I kind of would like it if Ash could use Krookidile to finally beat Pikachu, since it lost all its battles against Pika. I doubt that will happen...
but back on topic, would the voice actors of America really need to wait on the Japanese dub? They could always do the first few episodes in advanced. For all we know, they could already have like 10-20 episodes completed.
I think they are doing this so this saga will be over much or less at the same time. Because if XY are going to be released worldwide and at the same time, I guess they want to anime to debut at the same time.
I imagine there's some way around it, similar to how voiced videogames are released simultaneously. And while not voice acted, the Pokemon games are now able to be released in several languages at once.
The only real issue I see is they have to finish work on season 16 and start season 17 at the same time as Japan.
Either way I would love the gap to be even smaller than it is right now.
I remember a few years back when they had a new ep of DP every single day. Those were the good times. They need to do that to catch up

But I do think it happened with 4kids and the AG series, but only because they were a year behind and could do that.
I think Battle Frontier also did this for the same reason (but I could be wrong).
Also what's the point of this thread?
Edit: However, there is the other countries that do air a lot of dubbed episodes BEFORE the US. I think that's what he meant.
If I'm not mistaken there was like 3 or more episodes that aired day after day, I think ending with Dawn's Swinub evolving, I think in DP.
It happened recently too, if I'm not mistaken a country aired the rest of the Rivals Destiny episodes, while the US was still airing dubbed episodes week after week, but I don't think it happened day after day, however.

I will not say I'm the best. But by Ash's standards, I'm pretty good.
Some of you need to look at this before you comment on what a Pokemon should learn. Some of you are okay but some of you need to look at this: http://www.serebii.net/attackdex-bw/ This is the attackdex, it is your friend.
