    If there's a thread like this then feel free to lock this one. What are some of the lamest or just some awful lines you heard on the show? For me it's pretty much every word that comes out of Team Rocket's mouth in DP. I really hate the line "poach us a primo pokemon." That seemed like their go to alliteration early on.

    Since you already covered Team Rocket, I'll copy from another thread and say Ash's "Raise the roof".

    One line I never really liked was said in the Celebi ep in BF:

    May: What's time travel?


    I know why the writers put that in there, but c'mon, what 10 year old doesn't know what time travel is?

    Is there anyone here who never knew the term, "time travel" as a kid?

    There were quite a few times I've heard things that were just surreal to hear in pokemon. Probably because it was dated slang like that, but I don't remember what they were.

    Ash saying that he was gonna "raise the roof" in the Deoxys ranger episode. Also in that same episode Brock said that his pokeballs were "on the blink" and that Pewter City was "his old stomping grounds."

    Yeah, during Battle Frontier I think TPCi was going through a phase of using outdated slang that no kid today would say. Then again 4Kids has always did that. I could list so many Team Rocket examples of lame dialogue but then I'd type out most of their entire script (especially DP -.-)

    In the dub after TPCi took over, I'd wince whenever anyone ever said "That's all she wrote...". It sounded ok the first time, but was real old by the tenth use.

    How about when Ash saw Paul and Chimchar training during the Hearthome Tag Battle tourney and said something like, "You don't have to do it the hard way." It particularly grates on my ears because it is hard work becoming strong. And to follow it up, when Ash gives Chimchar the recruiting pitch, he says, "We'll have a blast and work hard!" Uh, Ash, I thought you said not to do it the hard way.

    One more thing to add:

    Anytime Meowth says "pokemonic." What the hell is that supposed to mean? "My pokemonic heart?"

    That wasn't the joke. Misty told them to make like a tree and leave.

    Jessie: There's nothing worse than getting your head handed to you by a homie.
    James: no duh.

    It's nice to see that TPCi is keeping those 90's phrases "hip and happening."

    Also from this one guy in the Hoenn League:
    "This is sweeter than a candy cane!"
    ....Really 4Kids?

    The redundant dialogue really gets to you especially in terms of attacks.

    "Use Hyperbeam!"

    "What's that?"

    "It's a Hyperbeam!"


    WTF? Apparently Brock has to repeat every attack that was said in the series despite the fact that we just heard it.

    Lance in the Red Gyarados special: "Put the petal to the metal!"
    That did make me laugh though just because of how ridiculous it sounded coming from Lance.

    Also from that episode:
    Tyson: You look...a little tied up! *laughs like a retard at his own joke*

    From The Legend of Thunder:
    Jimmy: *to Typhlosion* Hi paw!

    and also
    Eusine: Oh tragedy, misfortune, and woe!
    I laughed at that one though xP

    Along with Team Rocket's dialogue I have to add this line in.

    Ash: A talking Meowth? Who are you guys!?

    I facepalmed when I heard that. Ash, what other trio do you know that has a talkimg Meowth? Then again if you fall for disguises like this:

    [​IMG]

    then I guess it speaks for itself.

    Every time they eat rice balls in the 4Kids dubbed episodes. It is obvious that those things are not sandwiches! Doughnuts, mabye, but come on?!?!
