Something that struck my mind as I saw the increase in length of Tori Meadow's pink skirt from the Japanese dub to the English dub was if 4kids still dubbed the show, would they have lengthened Dawn's short pink skirt too if they dubbed DP? It wouldn't be a huge stretch if they did. Think about it guys. We're talking about 4kids here, who make small and pointless cleavage edits:(courtesy of @Dogasu;)

Japanese


English

It's possible that they would have edited her skirt like this:


And her maid outfit from this:


To this:


What do you think guys?

Considering how in AG, they started editing Jessie's skirt during some moments, and their really ridiculous edits in AG, I could see it happening.

Would I be surprised if they did edit it? Not at all.

Would I care? Not really.

Then again, Dawn's ten. A skirt that short kinda creeps me out....

I doubt that even 4Kids would go to such extreme lengths to edit Dawn like that.

(God, I never understood why they changed her sleeves. Is exposed arm skin gonna corrupt children? The pants, while being stupid, I could understand them censoring.)

I can understand the cleavage thing, but the skirt isn't showing anything so them editing it wouldn't surprise me. They don't even allow Ash to call Misty fat, instead they edit it to something that is completely opposite from what was said

I prefer the design used in the Pokemon Learning League over the official one. If the animators decided to change her a bit later on, we wouldn't have gotten scenes like these:


What I wonder is more how they would handle Langley's skirt
The only scene that they should ever to think of possibly editing is this one:


(if we keep on talking about other girls' skirts in the show, I'll change the topic and title for every girl instead of just Dawn)

Kamitsure's BDSM outfit
I wouldn't put it past them to cut that part out.

I'm not sure... That'd surely get rather tiring considering that they'll have to do if for nearly every episode in DP (except for those where she wears dresses and other shit), but I really wouldn't be surprised if they did. I wouldn't care either way, although I personally felt like it was really inappropirate for a 10-year old to wear something that short, but I guess they're just following the games' example. I mean, pretty much every female hero except Mei wear short pants/skirt.

That's true, but they don't have an "opening"(other than Leaf, but that's mostly because Dawn's her colour pallete swapped version) to see what's under them like Dawn does with her skirt. Something I forgot to mention was that Tori Meadows appears in every single episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, making her skirt be lengthened in every scene it's in.

EDIT: Oh and Tori gets an average of 25% screen time per episode.

Oh, really? I don't watch the series, so I didn't know. ^^;
Hm... Then I guess it would be possible after all.

4kids never flattened May's boobs, so why would they shorten Dawn's skirt?

If I recall weren't their paint edits in another dub where 4kids actually reduced the breast size on one of the character? Instead they (thankfully) left May's boobs alone.

What are you talking about? Jessie's breasts are bigger than May's. Why don't they flatten or decrease hers? Jessie did have some increased skirt scenes:

Japanese


English

Which makes me think that they would do the same with Dawn.

I would say that's unlikely, because it's highly expensive and unnecessary for 4Kids. But after seeing Tori Madows, I dunno...

Her design is not the one to blame. Animators easily could use a different camera angle...

Probably would've done the same thing they did for that Yu-Gi-Oh chick.

This here is the kind of thing that makes me thank Arceus we're rid of them (I shudder to think of how they would've ruined Hunter J :scared:. Hell, OLM probably wouldn't have even had the nerve to make her in the first place with them still in charge!)

sorry i ment to quote someone's post
That's not the problem.

The thread topic asks if 4Kids would have lengthened Dawn's skirt if they dubbed the Diamond and Pearl saga while you posted just to say that Misty's short shorts were cute. That has nothing to do with the topic, which is the problem.

Tell that to all the other costly and unnecessary edits made by 4Kids :p

Her design have nothing to do with this scene. Animators easily could use a different camera angle.
Yet they strangely didn't do that. If the design had more coverage while still remaining faithful to the original, Dawn wouldn't have that many odd scenes. Her skirt wouldn't be so gravity defying too, giving the animators an easier time.


They didn't edit Misty's short-shorts.
... because they're short-shorts, not an extremely short skirt xD

The amount of leg shown isn't the problem. The fear of wearing clothing that does not properly cover what's under is the problem to 4kids.

they would for sure edit Dawn's outfits for sure and I am glad after the hoenn region that 4kids lost there rights to dubbing cause they where like the worst at dubbing and they even did more than just dubbing
I'm pretty sure that her outfits wouldn't have been edited since there's nothing exploitable.

Dafuq?

Considering 4Kids's pointless edits involving Jessie, I might not be surprised if so.
