Unfortunately, that doesn't come off as a surprise to me at all. The dub quality has been going downhill for years now.I bet it's just me but even as somebody who only ever pays attention to the VA's involved nowadays...
there's just something that feels incredibly off with the scene of Ash winning.
I can't tell if it's the music or the weird script change where Ash just asks Gladion what happened instead of him asking if he had one but the scene doesn't feel as grand or sensational as it did in the Japanese original.
And the best part is, even more glorious moments are still coming! Ash vs Kukui is one epic moment after the other, and the final episode is so full of feels.This must've been such a fun episode to do. Everyone was hype to see Ash win this league and just the way it happened was pretty cool not gonna lie. Told my friends about this and they were like "Really?!" because unsurprisingly they haven't seen the show since the end of XYZ. The looks on their faces and the fact that I was the only one that watched all SM episodes up til now, easily the best Saturday I had in years. Ash winning an official league and even the actors talking about this on Twitter, this is why I watch the show people, this is why I'm even still here. The support going around is crazy and I love every second of this! Though even I have to keep reminding myself that yeah, SM is ending and that this new series that's airing in Japan is going to come here Stateside but, Can we just bask in this moment please?
I'm sorry, just the fact they still hyped up this episode as some kind of life defining moment for Ash when all he got for winning was another trophy and the right to challenge Kukui in an official match makes me giggle. Then there's the fact that this episode's contents were already spoiled months ago to almost every Pokemon anime fan including dub viewers, so there was not much of a surprise factor left.Sarah on Twitter said:Disney XD will air what may be the biggest episode in Pokémon history
In fact, when the Pokemon Twitter tested other's knowledge of final Pokemon League battles in each region no one knew that this was to promote the Alola League victory.Then there's the fact that this episode's contents were already spoiled months ago to almost every Pokemon anime fan including dub viewers, so there was not much of a surprise factor left.
