If that's the case then we'd all better watch out when it comes to the fifth gen! Johto rehash time!is it just me or does Diamond and Pearl seem more like a remake of the Kanto episodes? I couldn't help but notice that some of the episodes are almost scene for scene remakes of early episodes. I don't know if it means they're running out of ideas or if it means they just want to improve what could have been better. Either way, it's getting a little annoying because I feel as if they're skipping out on a lot of original concepts in favor of doing what has already been done.
I actually forgot about that ^^;; I'll try to remember to look it up for you sometime this weekend.Weedle Mchairybug said:also, off topic, but, did you find out if the second movie reference in "The Mystery is History" was in the original version or not? I had to ask since I hadn't gotten a PM in reply since i stated that it was in "The Mystery is history" in a reply to your question of what episode it was in.
That's interesting...AtoMan said:Side note - i went and did some checkups in Polish dub... and it seems Jetix airing cut around 27 seconds of Squirtle "capture" episode's footage. Both scenes featuring guns (Team Rocket threatening people - 14 seconds - and later people pointing guns at Ash - 13 seconds) were cut. That doesn't cause any harm plot-wise making me wonder why 4kids didn't do that in the first place.
Probably not. But Pocket Monsters makes enough Kyojin no Hoshi references throughout the years that it most likely *is* a reference to that particular series.Blackjack Palazzo said:I'm pretty sure that series didn't make that contraption up. Plus James is seen wearing one in flashback in a (much) later episode.
The common explanation is that they're remaking older episodes for newer fans. Since shows aren't rerun to death in Japan the way they are in the U.S. and since the original series is not available on DVD in Japan, lots of new fans have no way of watching the older episodes.Gligarman said:is it just me or does Diamond and Pearl seem more like a remake of the Kanto episodes?

My site started in 2000 when the series was in its huge "fad" stage. At the time, there were literally hundreds of fansites on the Internet, and finding a way to make *your* site stand out wasn't easy. I noticed that like 98% of the sites out there were dub-only, so I decided to make my site focus more on the original Japanese version instead. I was a huge fan of the still-active DBZ Uncensored and knew that Pokemon wasn't unedited in the least, so I decided to start doing episode comparisons.Amazed4587 said:Though I been wondering, what got you into doing comparsions in the first place? Don't know if anyone ever ask you this.
Dunno what did you see ;-) but the first opening used second verse of the song instead of first; probably for the same reasn Pokemon in US premiered with episode 15. As for being synced up or not - seems some episoded had this problem, but usually it was OK. And it's still better than Pikachu's Jukebox and Karaokemon, where the music clips were cut differently than in original, causing the clips not match up at all (Jukebox) and lyrics (Karokemon), because we got them with english lyrics on-screen.After reading your post, I did a quick search for the polish dub on YouTube and came across the Polish version of the first opening theme. And I wonder...why didn't they get the TV version of the opening theme instead of (what I assume to be) the CD version? It totally doesn't sync up.
I saw your vid and commented. AVI files uploaded on youtube usually are not really good with youtube but its still doable. Many times if you upload 640 x 480 vid its not so bad, you get the high quality option. I uploaded on youtube times before and mpegs gernerally work best to me and still come out great even if not in high quality. But the basic guidelines are found in this.Those cuts are...jarring. It also makes Jenny's appearance seem even more random than it was in the uncut version.
By the way, I've been working on this...does anyone have any tips for making YouTube videos look...not so crappy? The .avi file I uploaded looks fine, but when you look at it in YouTube, it's pretty terrible.

What's the line? I haven't read enough of Special to know what you're talking about.Blackjack Palazzo said:Of course, Surge saying "Goddamn!" is nothing compared to his most famous line from Special (which, btw, was changed to "Curses!" in the Singaporean translation).
In one part (vol 10 I believe) he shouts "SHIT!", spelled out. It's really funny.What's the line? I haven't read enough of Special to know what you're talking about.
Not sure about Surge in Volume 10, but in Volume 11 he does say "OH MY GOD" in english. It gets furigana and everything.In one part (vol 10 I believe) he shouts "SHIT!", spelled out. It's really funny.
(Special has a lot of random English, like Wallace saying "Beautiful!" and "Wonderful!" or Saturn saying "BOSS?")
