    I notice the music of every show I watch, so to each their own. One of the reasons people like the Kanto dub is how much Japanese music was kept.

    After seeing how 4Kids just skipped that least episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and 5D's, I'd be worried they'd do the same to Pokémon.

    I think that Pokémon is the same. I don't care about voices, it's the story, the sad and joyful moment which counts.

    Okay, point taken. Though I would why 4kids decided to mesh the US BGM and the JPN BGM when they would use one or the other. Did they like the Japanese BGM at first but wanted Wall-To-Wall music since it'd appeal to kids better.

    I also don't get why they'd purposely dumb down a foreign kids show because kids would like it better. I can get censorship for TV (so long as there are uncut versions) but why make things seem dumb when you could keep things the same?

    it would be the same,pokemon is the perfect anime for 4kids,its childish,no violence,cheesy stories,no death,no sad moments,no nudity,no romance nothing at all so 4kids wont bother editing anything in this show,I guess the only thing that would have differs is that we would have got a better opening themes.

    I think it would be better. I wont mention the characters voices for fear of being told off. They handled the translation better than PUSA. They threw in more humor and while they weren't as accurate with the translation, they manged to add their own something to it, to make it as enjoyable as it was.
    I think if 4kids had still been in charge we would have seen, funnier characters and no doubt some emphasis on romantic relationships, like they did with Ash and Misty. I think, on the whole, the dub would have been considerably better. The theme tunes definitely would have been.

    Unless you were saying TPCi "threw in more humor and while they weren't as accurate with the translation, they manged to add their own something to it, to make it as enjoyable as it was.", your two sentences contradict each other since you said "They handled the translation better than PUSA" and then said "they weren't as accurate with the translation,". Which one is it?

    Anyways, I think TPCi handled the translation better and is truly the best for handle the dubbing. Yes, the 4Kids' dub was good, but they did SO MUCH more senseless editing (Japanese Writing, Made-Up Language Writing, Food, etc). And after seeing how much LESS edits TPCi does, it only makes sense.

    Uh, maybe he's saying that an "accurate" translation isn't necessarily the best? I for one wish TPCi would add a bit more whimsy to the script like 4Kids did, make it sound a bit more lively and a bit less like a translated script.

    Elesa might sound like a valley girl who's smart at battling. Not that she is one but you know how 4kids loves to stereotype at times (except for being racist like with Jynx and Mr. Popo). Lenora might be safe from being Jynx'd but the apron would have to go.

    If 4Kids still dubbed Pokemon, here's what would happen:

    - Ash would be voiced by Veronica Taylor again
    - Jessie would be voiced by Rachael Lillis again
    - James would be voiced by Eric Stuart again
    - They would bring back the "4Kids style" BGM

    And then my favorite anime, Pokemon, would be back to normal. ^_^

    Haha. Actually, they did do that!! XD

    In the beginning, 4Kids brought in Veronica Taylor to voice Ash. Then, they replaced her with a kid. But a little bit later, they fired the kid, and brought back Veronica. =)

    I know how you feel, Griff. It's pretty difficult, especially if you're very attached to the original voices (like I am).

    Yeah, the scripts nowadays sound so stilted and it doesn't feel great. Unlike most, I wouldn't mind if the dub altered the script while staying true to the original version like with FUNimation.

    I think Veronica Taylor would've done doble-duty and voiced the next 2 female characters after May, Paul would've been voiced by Dan Green and Trip would've been voiced by Eric Stuart!!
    For the last time, BW is NOT a reboot.

    I don't think Veronica Taylor would have voiced any other female characters after May. Most likely Dawn would have been done by someone else.
