Dub Title Thread

These leaks have me distressed
Tbh if they plan on bringing Misty back more often I’m going to have to just stick to the sub. It’s like the VA isn’t even trying to make her sound different from May

I've always disliked Kasumi's dub voice from the post-4Kids era. I know that the odds of her original voice actress returning are slim to none, but I feel that it would be better to just recast her at this point to save us the dread of Michele Knotz voicing her. I don't dislike her as a voice actress in general since I think she's great at voicing Haruka and Musashi, but her Kasumi voice is very grating.

Why do the females in the dub sound so high pitched? No kid is sounds like that. Even Jessie who is an adult in her 20s sounds super high. And the weird part is the person in charge is from the 4kids era which never seemed to make the girls sound that bad.

I'm worried for the future of the dub too. Disneynow is missing whole seasons of Pokemon.

How does that imply anything? They don't have to letting us watch any of the old seasons. The fact that we can watch most of them for free is more than I would have expected.

It is likely in the process of finding a new home so no info will drop prior. Did some research about anime on DXD and they tend to drop it after a few years. They got Pokemon in 2016 so it is very possible they did not renew the license to keep it for whatever reason. Would also explain why the new movie was delayed so long and did Netflix before DXD. Of course this is not confirmed but it is very suspicious. I feel the anime would do better on Netflix just due to less people owning cable and DXD never being super popular even with cable owners. I'm also curious if the new movie having subbed option is hinting at them doing that with japanese releases for the series. It would have been nice to get info but I can understand why we did not get any if changes are being made

I do also seem to have suspicion that Disney XD dropped the series and that Season 23 (first dub season for Pokemon 2019) will probably see Pokemon moving to Netflix full-time due to the general popularity of on-demand streaming platforms as a whole. Then again, I'm guessing April or May will see S23's announcement.

You know what's interesting though? The last time we had a platform change (Cartoon Network to Disney XD in 2016-2017), when the movie (Volcanion/Magearna) was on Disney XD while XY&Z kept airing on Cartoon Network, the announcement of Volcanion/Magearna ACCOMPANIED the announcement of the platform change. We knew way before the final episode of XY&Z that Pokémon was gonna go to Disney XD.

Just check this link: https://www.polygon.com/2016/11/17/13666702/where-to-watch-pokemon-sun-and-moon-cartoon-disney-xd

2 months before the final episode of XY&Z, we already knew the show was moving. I feel like, if the same thing was happening this time, we would have found out at the same time we found out about the movie being on Netflix, the way it went down with Movie 19/Season 20.

A prayer circle that Ed Goldfarb doesn’t play elevator music for the end credits
Did you expect an insert song? Good one.

So yeah, this was the perfect way to end what's been a mess for the past 3 seasons (6 if we count XY). They can do better as shown in the last two movies, but they don't want to.

Season 23 will probably follow this trend of creative censorship. I'm not expecting any improvements.
