English Pokémon Twitter has just confirmed movie 23
The Anime Expo subtitles were a mix of the Japanese and 4Kids versions. They apparently leaned towards the former, but they kept some classic 4Kids lines with minimal changes.I'm still curious to see how they'll dub this movie. It would be interesting if they use this remake to basically redub the first movie without actually touching the 4Kids version. I don't know if they'll actually do that and I could see them keeping in at least a few of the recognizable 4Kids lines for the nostalgia factor, but it is an interesting idea.
Oh yeah. I forgot about the Anime Expo subtitles. That might make it more likely for them to do the redub route, at least to an extent. Keeping some of the classic 4Kids lines would make sense, but they still might be able to cover the movie more faithfully even with that in mind.
While I generally agree with this sentiment and feel 4Kids overall butchered the movie, this one really is a classic that is constantly quoted by fans:4Kids should had not touched this movie. Leave out dub lines.
