-XY, already better than Best Wishes.xD

XY dub won't be in the US at least until late january.
The maximum I can see is the first episode being broadcast as a teaser, but even that is a stretch.
I doubt the XY anime as a whole will begin its various dub airing's in sync with Japan.
However, I do think that (depending on when XY's first episode or two is finished being made) we could get a "rough" version of the XY anime aired the same day as the games release for promotional purposes (like how we got an hour long sneak peek of AG the day before RS was released). There wouldn't be any opening theme song and the dubbing may need tweeking later for the official series, but they could still do it if they wanted to.
I see no reason for the dub to show a sneak peek too when they'll already have Alexa, Gogoat, Helioptile, and Noivern running around about the time of XY's release.
To right the countless wrongs of our day, we shine this light of true redemption, that this place may become as paradise. What a wonderful world such would be...
Talking about Dub in the Spoilers section just doesn't seem right. Its like we are the original fans watching the sacred Original Anime while the dub is a impurity meant for the secondary fans who don't really matter. Original fans are the cooler bunch who knows about thing that secondary impure fans can't even imagine.
Logically speaking, I don't think it would be wise to air the Anime simultaneously. Something bad happens, just saying, and we lose continuation.
Isn't Sailor Moon doing a world wide release or is that manga only? (Have no idea tbh but heard something about worldwide and SM last year)
All kidding aside why not ask Tom? He is on Twitter. Of course he might not be able to say anything due to legal issues.

Honestly, I don't think it's impossible for the dub to be in sync with the original when XY comes out. If it was, it'll more than likely be a 2 day gap between the Japanese and the American release.
I mean, TPCi has proven that they can pick up and shift it into overdrive when it comes to shortening the gap. Just look at the end of the Battle Frontier arc. We would've probably had the same time of length if they didn't release the episodes daily with the BF arc, but we wouldn't be this far if they didn't do it.Look at it this way, We'll shorten the gap by a week when they rerun Movie 15 and the prequel to Movie 16. The gap will more than likely shrink more with other misc. gaps in between now and October with a slight chance will be about 1~3 episodes behind when the original Japanese gets to the Best Wishes farewell.
Besides, It will more than likely be synced all around for XY since Six Gen is going to be the at the same time worldwide releases generation anyways.
The Doctor: 'People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually*
from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.'
In other words: Time is Complicated.
The Alexa dub episodes will be airing when the XY games are released in the US. That means the kids of the US will see XY pokemon in the anime. So no, we will not see the XY anime in October in the US.
The dream has been killed and we should all get it through our heads that the Japan and US will never simultaneously air the same episodes.
It's impossible to air the anime in any place where te games re being released on 12th October for the reason that iftht is true, Team Plasma have to be airing in my country already based on the games' gap.
In the US it's not impossible but is rather difficult. And I think that the Alexa arc will be te answer to the delay.
Remember tat the games are airing intertionally since 2009 but the animeisn't airing in my country as the same time as the United States are airing right now 99% of the time. In other countries, they have aired episodes before the US, but only at the end of a season.
The anime will air at Christmas at best in the US unless the anime ends is airing in Japan in early September ending in BW140 and not BW144
Note: the games are selling outside Japan t about the same time. The difference with XY is that we are getting at the same time as Japan and because of how the event is so important to Nintendo they have done a special thing by releasing the games on the same day even through games aren't released in America and specially Europe on Saturdays.
I personally think that with Alexa, we may see more Gen 6 stuff than usual before XY begins. That way fans of the animé will get stuff involving XY before the Best Wishes begins. Maybe a few episodes close to the end will be aired in doubles to close the gap a bit more, but not close it completely. Maybe a month or two.
It is a coincidence, again US isn't the only country besides Japan in the world that has pokemon airing, they don't accomodate things just for you guys because if that was the case they would do the same with other dubs.
It just isn't going to happen people have to get over the dub not airing with the games in the us. This is when the fact that the games are more important than the anime and japan being more important than america shows the most.
For those people saying it's impossible, it's not. People are talking about script-writing and casting as if that's something that happens after they've got the footage, that's absolutely absurd. The episode would not have to be in the final stage of production to be dubbed, things like battle animations and shading could quite easily be left out when the footage was passed over for dubbing.
