Prepare for trouble, Episode 5 of Ultimate Journeys is here.
And make it double, because it's aired on Teletoon in Canada.

Emlyn McFarland returns to voice Cassidy, after last voicing her in 2008 with DP065 "Sleight of Sand". Cathcart also reprises Butch after the same amount of time, though he does a slightly different take on Butch's "Harvey Fierstein" voice, adding a bit of gruff and "Joisey" accent to it. I kinda like it. Aside from that, very well-acted, I'd say!

Oh, also Raticate. I believe Cathcart was their Raticate from their debut in Season 1. The dub also uses the same motto from Season 1's "The Breeding Center Secret".

Anyway, I'm interested to know if the English version of the B&C motto in this episode is the same from EP057 or the slightly different one from Pokémon Chronicles (which said "Here's our mission, so you better listen!")?

Edit
The dub also uses the same motto from Season 1's "The Breeding Center Secret".
Thanks for sharing.

Just finished watching the episode. It was interesting hearing Emily Williams and Carter Cathcart reprising their roles as Cassidy and Botch. Cassidy sounds pretty much the same as Emily Williams voiced her back in late AG and DP.

But Botch on the other hand, it seems Carter Cathcart decided to do his own take instead. He sounded much different than to how he previously voiced it. Which I guess it naturally makes sense since he hasn't had the chance to voice him in almost 15 years, and he's much older now too.

I'm actually kinda happy they got back Emlyn McFarland, since I think her work on Pokemon is pretty underrated.

Honestly, this episode was pretty boring. Not much really happened in it, it's the Team Rocket trio splitting up again and then reuniting at the end of the episode, it just drags out for too long imo.

I'm surprised the writers picked up on the fact that the motto is supposed to be a flashback to EP057 and used the correct dialogue, since if you weren't familiar with that episode it would look pretty generic. Though I'm confused why they had Cassidy's last line be "Team Rocket's circling all day and night"...what are they circling? Excluding the word "earth" makes it super awkward. I'm sure it's supposed to be a lip flap issue, but it doesn't even line up well.

Speaking of awkward...wooooof that voice acting. I've come to expect any Team Rocket-centric episode dubbed by TPCI to be painful, but this is some next-level nonsense. The trio is their usual hot mess, but Cassidy and Butch were a new kind of terrible. I'm not surprised they reused the same voice actors from Butch and Cassidy's DP appearance, but they sound just awful here. Cassidy in particular sounds like she's just reading off cue cards. The clunky, awkward, unnatural dialogue and the cheesy background music certainly don't help. Compare it to the 4Kids version of the same motto sequence and its so jarring. I'm no 4Kids fanatic or anything, but I'd take their version of this duo any day.

TPCI's dub has always had the feeling that they just take the first take of whatever the actors put out, but this was especially jarring.
