Just so you know, the Pikachu movie episode is NOT a special, however the way it's being placed in the dub will make it feel like it is (you'll find out soon).
TPCI should still leave the original soundtrack of the Hoopa movie alone. I mean why would you change such recognizable music? Why ruin that nostalgia? The soundtrack contains remakes of music from previous movies and there is even a song from the first generation TV series, it's music that's heard by people who watch both the Japanese version and the dub version of the Pokémon anime. So if TPCI decides to change the soundtrack for this movie, they are not going to give people who only watch the dub that same experience as those who watch the original version, TPCI must know what the music in this soundtrack means.
Oh and we got confirmation that TPCI did indeed replace the original soundtrack of the Hoopa movie. ....I still don't understand why they started doing this.
Just take out the feeling of knowing the many Legendary Pokémon that appear were in previous movies, just ruin that nostalgic feeling. Goddammit, TPCI...
You saw that confirmation on Bulbagarden, too?
Anyway, I hope the new BGM at least has some resemblance to the Legendary themes from before (since Lugia is in the movie, this gives Ed Goldfarb a chance to remix my favorite dub Legendary theme). If not, then I'll at least want it to be something memorable, or at least to not repeat the mistakes of the Diancie dub soundtrack (as much as I favor that one, I would've liked it better if it would've stopped at some points, or if its Mickey Mousing weren't done in such a distracting fashion that doesn't blend in well with the rest of the track; seriously, take a hint from some of David Newman's compositions).
Donkarasu: Nobody said you can't like it, it's just you keep on reminding us that you hate it.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: It's out of bafflement at how much worse it got. Plus, I'm still reeling from M21. Over the course of the month (as the gap between experiences with that music and not experiencing it will be growing), this'll die down.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Generally, my vitriol toward the JP music is in proportion to how recently I experienced it and how much of it was included in that recent experience. That and its quality (or lack thereof).

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Experiencing (most of) an entire movie full of his noise made for pure wrath.

Donkarasu: So Veronica Taylor will be voicing two characters in Dragon Ball Super,

Donkarasu: I want to say I love how much the Japanese version of the Sun & Moon Pokémon anime series is playing with the "Who is it?" eye catch part, like in the recent episode having to Skull Gang members arguing over it in both before and after the ad break.

ShiningStarlia: Considering Ribrianne's infamous reputation in the DB Super fandom, I'm a bit worried, but not that much. She'l put on an amazing show, that's without a doubt! Plus this isn't Veronica's first rodeo with DB.

ShiningStarlia: I remember her voicing a blind kid who was healed by Fat Buu back in Z. And that must've been like, almost 20 years ago I think!

Donkarasu: It's funny, despite Ribrianne getting so much hate (not me, I think she's an entertaining character and love the Magical Girl parody Toei added with her and her team mates) people were excited to hear that Veronica Taylor was voicing Ribrianne.
Dec 6, 2018 6:04:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: In a way though. I personally have no problem with her and think her magical girl parody is hilarious and her transformation is meant to look hideous that even in-universe Vegeta couldn't bring himself to punch her when she tried to use Rollout on him.

ShiningStarlia: Though considering how much screentime she soaks up, I can see where most of the complaints come from. Then again, one can say the same thing about the Saiyans (U6 and U7) so who am I to complain? Haha.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: I think the forum's banner pic should be changed to Tsareena's butt closeup from today's episode. Pokemopolis thrives on easy-to-take-out-of-context stuff like that.

Donkarasu: So have been hearing Movie 21 has a heart warming story, it's not another movie that shoehorns in a Mythical and/or Legendary Pokémon for the sake of views, but rather their use in the plot is respectable, all characters get to do something notable, etc.
Dec 9, 2018 9:41:38 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: While that's true, it did still default to the whole "mythical/legendary hates humans until it meets Ash and friends" formula. Some parts of the old formula just had to stick around.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Everything else was fresh and well-done, though. And though I trash the music (the only weak point of the movie, and boy is it an Achilles' Heel; that is except for the dub's ending song), the movie itself is spectacular.
