    I guess I'm lucky that it seems to be playing close by where I live since I don't have Disney xD And I would love to see a Pokemon movie in a theater again.

    The chance of having higher quality shows.

    And I don't mean the new gen sitcoms not related to previous sitcoms that actually were good.

    Chris, read above about Pokégirl Fan's situation. That's the kind of thing I'm talking about. Paying an entire monthly cable bill just to see the movie is not really a viable alternative, and it's therefore quite nice it's being shown in theatres. And it is NOT moot

    Why not released it in Japanese with English subtitles instead?

    Mew2 Team Rocket's Enemy

    Probably because it is a kid's show based on video game franchise that is popular worldwide and has different names for many of the characters for each language. Kids would get confused as to why Charizard is called Lizardon in an animé. And given that it's a kids series based on a video game franchise for all ages, the market for a Japanese version with English subtitles probably isn't as large as it would be for a different animé not based on a video game franchise.

    Plus, the anime is sacred in Japan that it's so integrated to their culture...

    ...and thus costs a lot of money to pay for royalties that include Japanese voices and music to air over here.

    Oddly though, some anime I've never heard of is getting a two-day fathom events release just like Pokémon except that the first night is SUBBED and the second day is DUBBED. Like.....what?

    Sentai Filmworks is weird.

    They're like slightly better TPCI dubbing company, but not as good as Cup of Tea Productions or Bang! Zoom Entertainment.

    HA.
    What a troll title, even worse than the sub's was. I'm still bummed they didn't show it off

    It is unmasked, but the audience never gets to see what's under the rag.

    Awesome! It seems we'll get an actual Mallow episode after so many complained this week that she did nothing in Ash's trial episode. Btw, I was not amongst the complainants and thought she played her role well as it was Ash's trial

    Even if the episode stars her, it's actually much more about her father than her own development. Sadly.

    Not even in her own episode she's allowed to have some sort of growth.

    Okay, I guess that works...Belligerence doesn't really fit though

    I'm assuming the word "Belligerence" refers to:

    Dhelmise, because Brionne is nothing like that.

    Well, I hope it's better than the last alliterative title: The Sun, the Scare, the Secret Lair! which imo is the #1 most overrated episode in Pokémon history, since everybody seems to be obsessed with it even though Team Rocket didn't even beat Ash

    The puns. The alliterations. The obscure book references.

    They will never stop.
