    Unfortunately, yes.
    What? What does this even mean? Who talks like that? Certainly not anyone I know.

    "Pokemonic", "oy vey", "dig it". Most of Meowth's TPCi-era lines, really.

    4Kids did call them riceballs in a few of their dub episodes, though, I wouldn't say that applied to every instance:


    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NINhKtf7Z2A



    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wmzh8xqCHQ


    Need I remind everyone TPCi dubbed episodes since late BW have been calling every fruit on the show berries, be it an apple or otherwise? That's no better, honestly (also once in DP's dub, they covered up rice balls with ice cream sandwiches when Cynthia spoke to Team Rocket- that was post-4Kids dubbed episodes: so, TPCi are just as guilty of their own food censorship now).


    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3TQKpVfEvo

    Ewww...

    Some more I recalled:

    "Drew is such a weenie!" - Some character, "Spontaneous Combusken," friend just re-watched the ep. and found this one.
    "It's not footch, it's Buutttch!" - Butch, "Sleight of Sand" ("Footch" is not a word!)
    "Wow, Nathaniel reminds me a'me!" - Ash, "Strategy Begins at Home!"
    "Mess with me, and you're gonna lose!" - Ash, "I Choose You!" (Is he a playground bully now, TPCi?)
    "Wait until I polish off this kid!" - Verity, "I Choose You!" (Polish off meaning the 2nd top definition here: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=polish off- disgusting given it's a 10 year old girl talking about a 10 year old boy.)
    "Givin' a gift to the boss would set us up on easy street, sweet!" - Meowth, "Tasting the Bitter with the Sweet!"
    "Wowie!" - Bonnie, Various Times, XY dub
    "Coochy coo!" - Bonnie, see above
    "Move it everyone! Now we really need, to step on the gas!" - Clemont, "An Electrifying Rage!"
    "Gingerly rubbing that gentle Geodude...!" - James, "Grating Spaces!
    "Swa-la!" - James, "Lumiose City Pursuit!" (Not even a word, once again)!
    "They’re both runnin’ out of gas." - Ash, "Dealing with Defensive Types!"
    "Well, wild Jenny, you've already got my heart in custody: wild Brock is here to make your wildish dreams come true!" - Brock, "Stealing the Conversation!" (Sorry, he sounds like a borderline pedo with this dialogue)
    "So we decided to deal with you law-enforcement yahoos walking around with bullying bowling balls by making a power pin that you can't knock down!" - Meowth, "Stealing the Conversation!"
    "Num, num! Num num! Num nums!" - Jessie & James, "Acting True to Form!" (Speaks for itself)
    "Puh-leeze. You’d think the twerps were using vanishing cream." - Jessie, "Mastering Current Events!"
    "Puh-leeze!" - Misty, "The Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon!"
    "See? Sometimes I can do the right thing!" - May, "The Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon!"
    "Hey, whaddya say we take a whack at trying to read the wind?" - Ash, "Mastering Current Events!"
    "That jerk's got ostentatious-itis!" - Meowth, "Gotta Get a Gible!"
    "To denounce the evils of emo and love!" - Jessie, "Team Rocket's Shocking Recruit!" (Lame!)
    "This is the way me make the antenna, make the antenna, make the antenna: this is the way we make the antenna, so early in the morning!" - James, "Nosin' Round the Mountain!"
    "‘Kay, gang, chow time!" - Ash, "Fighting Fear with Fear!"
    "Lame-o's." - Paul, "Different Strokes for Different Blokes!"
    "Mercy me/land sakes" - Elderly woman COTD, "Gettin' Twiggy With It!"
    "Yo, yo- it's a pain to explain, yo!" - Main COTDs, "Breaking Titles at the Chateau!"
    "You're not just a little kid, Ash Ketchum, you're a big baby!" - Iris, "The Path that Leads to Goodbye!"

    Everything out of Iris’s mouth when she condemns Ash for not knowing something he literally has no way of knowing

    Followed by Cilan's endless spewing of "taste", "flavor", gratuitous butchered English, and "I'm an [Insert Whatever Noun You Want Here] Sommelier!"

    I just thought of one on that note, thanks for bringing it up, because that was definitely cringe-worthy!

    "Come on baby, don't say maybe!" - Meowth, "Purrloin: Sweet or Sneaky?"

    Also...

    "You're psyched, we're psyched!" - Cameron, "A Unova League Evolution!"

    Sun and Moon edition on my part this time, everyone, some new, recently revealed eye-rollers:

    "Ahoy, Ash!" - Rotomdex, "Tough Guy Trials!" (Why is Rotomdex a pirate now?)
    "Bling bling!" - Jessie, "Tough Guy Trials!" (Really?! What is this, are we in "the hood" now?)
    "Tra-la-la, he-he-he, look at me!" - Jessie, "Tough Guy Trials!" (Speaks for itself)
    "You do, you think so too Mimikyu, whoop-de-do!" - Jessie, "Tough Guy Trials!" (See above)
    "The top twerp!" - Jessie, "Tough Guy Trials!" (Obligatory alliteration)
    "The twerp's toast!" - Meowth, "Tough Guy Trials!" (See above)
    "Oh Lycanroc, you're psyched too!" - Ash, "Tough Guy Trials!" ("Psyched")
    "Crew cut glasses goo girl..." - Jessie, "Tough Guy Trials!" (...What does this mean?!)

    Wow....so much cringe. I used to think that Jessie’s dialogue was the least offensive, but, after seeing “Bling bling!”, I’m not so sure anymore.

    Brock's "I'll use my trusty frying pan as a drying pan!" line makes me die of cringe.

    Literally nearly the entire script of the dub of "The Legend of Thunder". Holy sh*t, it is so bad that 4Kids somehow made JCC's scripts look like any flawless script translation.

    What is it with the dub and finding the lamest lines that dont fit at all? And some of the titles are bad! I think that SM74, that episodes was full of lame lines a 10-year old would NEVER EVER say, even grown-ups wont!
