    You're correct about the titles of the episode.

    Another one that I am not a fan of is, "Pruning Though a Prussle of Pals". ( I hope I got the title right.)

    I actually like the corny adaptations of popular sayings and phrases that the english titles use.

    "Egg, Hatch." LOL yes winner!


    The Scheme Team was a rather boring title tho.

    You mean "Pruning a Passel of Pals." And that's another really bad one. XD

    I've never been a big fan of the Japanese style titles. Yes the dub has puns, but it's not as annoying as Verb with Exclamation Point! Vaguely Related Nouns??!!?!?.

    I find it funny how some titles were almost repeated:

    "The Joy of Pokemon" is that ep in Orange Islands with the tanned Nurse Joy.

    "The Joy of Water Pokemon" is that ep in Johto where Nurse Joy had a fear of water Pokemon.


    With the exception of that one word, the dub title would have been exactly the same.

    Mostly all of DP "punny" titles. I think 4Kids did the titles better IMO.

    I don't see what's so bad abot that? It's a pretty decent pun.

    Bad ones.. "I Politoed You So", for sure.
    I mean, what?

    In Norway, title writers, both for Tv episodes and comic books, overuse references to "A Streetcar Named Desire". The Norwegian word for "desire" is pretty close to the word for "trouble", so you constantly see episode and stories titled "A *something* Named Trouble". The Pokemon writers use it too, off the top of my head I can remember "A Cacturne Named Trouble" for the first Harley episode, and "A Taillow Named Trouble" for the episode where Taillow is cought.
    Jeez, get some imagination.
    So.

    "Tracey Gets Bugged." I mean, come ON! Wonderful episode, one of my favorites, but honestly...

    "The Right Place at the Right Mime." Had nothing to do with the episode, in which Mr. Mime was hardly even present. (I feel like they were too lazy to think up one, and just reached for some "Mime" pun they'd rejected before.)


    Let's see...Rocket Girl has already defended "Once There Were Green Fields" admirably...also....

    I thought that title was was fairly clever. Then again, I love bad puns (but not lame ones. The difference is subtle.)

    They do actually get some good titles, though. Let me rack my brain to think of one. ....Pikachu Revolts? Well, there are some good ones.
    Yes! That was good. "Meowth Rules!" is another fave of mine.

    Me, too. But I thought that one was (again) somewhat clever, a play on "the Big Kahuna," the nickname of a surfing legend in some old beach movie (based, of course, on "kahuna," the native Hawaiian word for "Priest, sorcerer, magician, wizard, minister, expert in any profession.")

    It's an obscure pun based on very casual English... "I prolly to'd you so" is how some people might say "I probably told you so" if they were in a hurry.

    In Norway, title writers, both for Tv episodes and comic books, overuse references to "A Streetcar Named Desire". The Norwegian word for "desire" is pretty close to the word for "trouble", so you constantly see episode and stories titled "A *something* Named Trouble".

    And for the third time... LOL!

    Which only goes to show...lame puns are universal!

    Some of them can be cute.

    Worst has gotta be: "One Team, Two Team, Red Team, Blue Team!"

    WTF

    Seriously, what now? That makes all the crappy 4kids/PUSA puns look excusable.

    I actually believe those titles mentioned up above were pretty good. And of course, I don't remember what episode numbers were they since I can only keep my memory of those episodes for so long but to me, those one's were probably just some funny titles. I'll look for some more.

    One title that really annoyed me is "That's Just Swellow." Way to spoil the major event for everyone, guys!

    That's probably his way of saying in the title that his Taillow was turning into Swellow and since Swellow has the word SWELL in it, that made it one of the best title ever and plus one of the best episodes because Ash was competing against Jessie and James along with his new friend he met at the beginning of the episode, Kaito, with May and Max cheering for him to win and he managed to win in the end. Taillow evolved in the middle into Swellow which is why that episode was given the name it has.
