    Meh, american dub is worst thing to happen to the Pokémon series and sadly it's the version that's used as raw material for other foreign dubbings.

    Japanese BGMs & insert songs are 1000 times better. Therefore, I'm still going to watch XY with subs.

    You are overreacting way too much. For a kid's anime it is normal. Only weeaboos are the ones who care and if that is the case watch the japanese and quit complaining about a children's anime aimed at kids. If using dub music means less time dubbing or less cost for faster dubbing I'd take it. Want a bad dub? go watch the Inazuma Eleven dub. That is pretty much the only dub I'll let people bash

    The yugioh zexal dub is honestly pretty bad too. I don't know anyone that hasn't thought differently.

In movies, and special events (like special premieres), the BGM is kept but apparently TPCI only paid the soundtrack of the special premiere, not the entire pack opf episodes.

    This is the reason why unlike the gamnes, the "japanese version" doesn't air in Japan and the dubs comes from the English and not Japanese version. There's no legal way to watch an episode in Japanese in Europe (the English version can be watched in UK, through dual and through the English official website).
    FUNimation does it and their Anime release are straight to DVD.

    You got that right! The Legend of Korra is returning on October 3rd! Mark your calendars!

    They're selling stuff to people who probably want the original music included. I doubt Pokemon's banking on its DVD sales slone to keep them afloat like FUNi does.

    Of course. They've got a TV deal, meaning they get more than just DVD sales. But if money's needed to get the JPN BGM, then that shouldn't be such an issue. This is The Pokemon Company International. They practically own the Anime along with dubbing it. Keeping the music should be child's play (especially with the dough they rake in thanks to the franchise itself). Plus, why would they make more work for them outside of voice acting and scripting?

    I really can't imagine why TCPI would want to change the music when it's more cheaper to keep the original BGM (if that's what you're saying). Are they trying to make themselves bankrupt or something?

    I do not know the amount of profit that TPCi and FUNimation make from their dubs, but it seems that if a small company like FUNimation can afford to keep all the Japanese music in their dubs, then TPCi (the owner of one of the most successful franchises in history) should be able to do the same. If this is a case in which the dubbers think that children will not like the Japanese music since it isn't playing to match the movements of every step a character makes all over the place like their own music, then I don't see how they came to that conclusion. I mean, not all children in America are ADHD viewers who will refuse to watch any show that does not have tunes that resemble an episode of Tom and Jerry or the original Mickey Mouse cartoon from the early 90's.

    Maybe making music themselves is cheaper than getting the original music.

    Maybe. But then how can companies like FUNimation, which AGAIN mostly make cash of direct to DVD releases, afford to better than The Pokemon Company International, which is in charge of a HUGE franchise, itself?

    Are you starting to see the issue? If anything, TPCi should OWN that music.

    Funimation and TPCI aren't the same when it comes to owning anything, I know this becuase I listen too VAs from Funi in Podcasts. It has nothing to do with being cheap, if they want to use thier own music, they should be alllowed but complaining or bring up every piece of musi that is changed is being childish, we are in 2014, we should get over petty stuff like that.

    This is a nice episode in general. But Eureka should not complain Citron for running slow because he is carrying all the bags. That includes the one from herself and the one from Satoshi's. The Rocket disguise of a laboratory assistant is good while they use the height of Nyarth and Sonans combined to make sense for an adult's height.

    I am not sure that Gaburias is firing Hakai Kosen because it was purple in colour. Rather looks like a beam version of Shadow Ball to me.

    What are you talking about?! All Garchomp did was hiting a car and unleashing random Hyper Beams... but it didn't kill ANYONE. Garchomp was doing all that stuff because that collar was driving it crazy. Ash wanted to remove the collar from Garchomp's neck, that's why he was trying to clam it down.

    This was a much better episode than the last. The Garchomp incident was amazing.

    That scene with the phone made me laugh.

    This episode had an awesome Pikashipping moment. Ash jumped off prisim tower to save Pikachu when he fell. He risked his own life to save Pikachu who he loves so much. I loved it. Ash wuvs his Pika.

    A tough looking Dragon Pokemon like Garchomp looking out for an injured Froakie.
    That's pretty adorable.

    Had a feeling that when Sarena said "that boy..." in regards to Ash, it was going to be some kind of 'she's seen/met him in the past' deal.

    I usually don't care this much about how voices sound on this show, but I didn't think Sycamore's voice would be that deep. Thought it would have a higher pitch than that. No big deal, though. I'll get used to it.
