  • Also, Meloetta's Moonlight Serenade is actually Movie 15's Pikachu short. Eevee and Friends is Movie 16's Pikachu short, and it kept all Japanese BGM intact. Movie 19 dosen't have a Pikachu short accompanying it.

    By the way, someone out there made a "nostalgia mix" of the Movie 20 dub with all the Japanese BGM intact! I hope he'll do the same for Movie 21.
    You're welcome. I've been watching late BW-XY episodes dubbed on youtube just to count how much Japanese BGM is kept in those episodes. I'll watch some S19 episodes later today so expect more updates.

    (Season 15) BW093: Goodbye Junior Cup... Hello Adventure! - 7 pieces kept.
    BW094: The Road to Humilau! - 6 pieces kept
    (Season 16) BW115: The Pokémon Harbor Patrol! - 4 pieces kept
    (Season 18) XY075: Fairy-type Trickery - 6 pieces kept (the Japanese pieces that plays in-between Kalos Wild Battle theme and Kalos Trainer Battle theme was kept in the dub. It's hard to hear because of the loud sound effects.)
    (Season 19) XY095: Love Strikes! Eevee, Yikes! - 5 pieces kept
    XY096: A Giga Battle with Mega Results! - 4 pieces kept
    XY097: A Fiery Rite of Passage! - 3 pieces kept
    XY098: Dream a Little Dream from Me! - 3 pieces kept
    XY109: Master Class Choices - 4 pieces kept
    XY113: Performing a Pathway to the Future! - 3 pieces kept
    XY115: Battling at Full Volume - 6 pieces kept
    XY124: A Gaggle of Gadget Greatness! - 4 pieces kept
    XY126: Valuable Experience For All! - 4 pieces kept
    XY131: Down to the Fiery Finish - 3 pieces kept
    XY132: A Towering Takeover! - 1 piece kept

    And for the record, you forgot to update XY079's BGM count. It should be 4, not 3.
    Gotcha, thanks for the updates, will put them in when I can.

    [Thanks a bunch, man!

    Oh, it's too bad. The voices don't really bother me in the M18 dub, but the music... ugh! I just can't stand the dub music.

    Speaking of that, here's another correction for your music count list... XY028 (The Bonds of Evolution) actually kept 7 pieces, not 4.]
    [Okay, cool.

    While you're at it, can you do the Hoopa movie as well? That movie has a great soundtrack, but unfortunatly most of it was replaced in the dub.]
    [Thanks! Would be nice if you can post the link on your twitter when you're done.]
    [That's cool... but I think it's best if you remove the link in your VM since there's a rule against posting full episodes links. Also, can you please upload it on youtube or vimeo? I have no idea how to download from Gdrive using my phone.]
    Glad I could help.

    Yeah, the GGG era is atrocious. Constant mickey mousing, rejected Batman/elevator/laundry/UFO dub music, terribly low amount of original BGM, and terrible theme songs are ruining the dub like no tomorrow. Nowadays TPCi has gotten so cheap that they can't even afford to keep John Loeffer for composing dub music. It's a shame, really.

    Edit: Quick corrections - S17E35 Battles in the Sky actually kept 7 pieces. I forgot to count the Title Card theme last time. Also, Performing with Fiery Charm kept 4 pieces.

    Edit 2: And yet another correction! M19 dub kept 4.5 pieces. The first 16 seconds of this track was replaced in the dub.
    Okay, then.

    SEASON 18

    XY053 - A Race for Home: 4 pieces kept
    XY056 - One for the Goomy: 2 pieces kept
    XY058 - The Green, Green Grass Types of Home: 3 pieces kept
    XY059 - Under the Pledging Tree: 2.5 pieces kept
    XY060 - A Showcase Debut: 4 pieces kept
    XY063 - A Fork in the Road! A Parting of the Ways: 3 pieces kept
    XY064 - Battling With Elegance and a Big Smile: 3 pieces kept
    XY067 - The Moment of Lumious Truth: 4 pieces kept
    XY074 - Fairy-Type Trickery: 5 pieces kept
    XY076 - A Not-So-Flying Start: 4 pieces kept
    XY077 - A Relay in the Sky: 5 pieces kept
    XY093 - All Eyes on the Future: 4 pieces kept

    SEASON 19

    XY100 - A Festival of Decisions: 4 pieces kept
    XY101 - A Dancing Debut: 3.5 pieces kept
    XY105 - Party Dancecapades: 4 pieces kept
    XY115 - Battling at Full Volume: 5.5 pieces kept.
    XY127 - Analysis Versus Passion: 2 pieces kept
    XY128 - A Riveting Rivalry: 4 pieces kept
    XY130 - Finals Not for the Faint-Hearted: 4 pieces kept
    XY140 - Till We Compete Again: 4 pieces kept (XY title screen theme and BW title screen counts as two seperate pieces)

    The XY preview theme only played during the XY preview, which has nothing to do with the Genesect movie. That piece never played in the movie itself... so yeah, I think M16 dub kept 100% BGM.

    That's all for S17. I'll post S18 later
    You're welcome. Alright then, I'll help you with some(not all because I haven't watched every single XY episode dubbed yet) XY/XYZ episodes.

    Well, it can't be helped. TPCi went nuts with replacing music from both the main series and the movies ever since GGG came on board. The terrible replacement music dosen't help the situation at all. Movie 20 dub is going to suck BIG TIME because of GGG.

    The censorship thing is another story. Save for one DP episode where TR had a rather... inappropriate boss fantasty, TPCi never censored stuff like they're doing now. It's rather unusual, really.

    Just so you know, I'm not such a big fan of the Loeffer's OS-DP music. With the exception of few pieces, the music was mostly... bland. But still, it was a little better than the goldfarbage we've been getting since S17.

    BTW according to your list, movie 16 kept 97.6% Japanese BGM. I just rewatched that movie... and I don't think anything was replaced. Am I missing something here?
    Hey dwatcher, I was looking at your "How much Japanese BGM kept in season 16" list... and I noticed that the amount of Japanese BGM kept in some S16 episodes (Mostly the DA! ones)is quite inaccurate. If you don't mind, I'd like to help you fix the BGM count for some S16 episodes.


    BW103 Team Eevee and the Pokémon Rescue Squad: 4 pices kept.
    BW116 The Fires of a Red-Hot Reunion: 8 pieces kept.
    BW122 What Lies Beyond Truth and Ideals: 4.5 pieces kept.
    BW123 Farewell Unova! Setting Sail for New Adventures: 7 pieces kept.
    BW124 Danger, Sweet as Honey: 8 pieces kept
    BW125 Cilan and the Case of the Purrloin Witness: 3 pieces kept.
    BW126 Crowning the Scalchop King: 12 pieces kept.
    BW127 The Island of Illusions: 2 pieces kept.
    BW128 To Catch A Rotom: 6 pieces kept.
    BW129 The Pirates of Decolore: 7 pieces kept.
    BW134 The Journalist from Another Region: 5 pieces kept
    BW135 Mystery on a Deserted Island: 4 pieces kept.
    BW136: A Pokémon of a Different Color: 3 pieces kept.


    Hope this helped. By the way, the Japanese BGM count for a lot of XY dub episodes need correction as well.
