Does anyone know a way to view a subbed version of Pocket Monsters Crystal Raikou: The Legend of Thunder?

I can't find anything online that implies there is anything in english besides the apparently botched dub.

There are no official, TPCi-supported subs of the original Japanese dub of the Pokémon anime. The only subs available are fansubs and sharing those is not allowed on here (per the rules).

All I know to tell you is to look high and low on the Internet.
Or buy a DVD from Japan.

Though that makes me really curious...just what IS the current home media situation for the Legend of Thunder and other Ash free specials???
One thing I've been especially concerned about is the Strongest Mega Evolution. They directly effect the plot of XY later on, but it looks they're not available by themselves or included in season sets (physical or streaming)...<_<

Oh I see. That really sucks for situations like this then. I've heard the dub of Legend of Thunder is pretty notoriously bad.

This is exactly the problem I ran into but for LoT in particular. The Japanese LoT doesn't even seem to be uploaded anywere going by the results I got when I searched, so it's probably lacking even fansubs.

It is what it is. I'm sure a fansub does exist out there, but as SammyW27 said, the best thing is just to do an extensive search.

Yeah. ShoPro or OLM or whoever's in charge is notorious for yanking videos off the Internet because they ONLY want people to watch official home media or streaming videos. Thing is, that often excludes the Japanese version.
It's even more annoying because this allows--heck, forces--Ash free material to slip between the cracks and be forgotten or unknown :cry:
