    Here's a post about it from another forum:
    The title is a play on the phrase "Casting a Pallbearer". Which basically means announcing bad news to one or more people. In that sense, the title is perfect and is one of the better titles they've given us.

    It's kind of annoying how people bring up this title - and this title only - when talking about how "boring" and "uncreative" the Japanese titles are. If you're going to criticize the Japanese version for being "boring," at least bring up some more examples!

    Complaining about "The Egg Hatches!" has gotten really old.

    Then I guess that also means you don't care if they do keep the titles, right?

    since the englishh titles are used in the Brazilian Portuguese Version, i hope they don't keep with those jokes, they go horrid on our language, and it's kinda ironic that tthey use American Titles, since they translate the episode directly from the original version, i guess they're just lazy XD.

    looks like the TPCI writers are also breaking away from tradition and who could blame them. They get bashed all the time for many reasons i can't explain in this post. Now lets hope Cilan is voiced by Dan Green

    Decent titles do not equal good dubbing.
    *sigh* so sad but true.

    Nah. I'm sure you're thinking of his regular Yugi voice and that's a bit too young for him. We need someone like Vic Mignonga who can do a voice that can be over-the-top with bishie but still sound normal when in regular convol.

    I have to make a list now, of every boring uncreative episode title in the Japanese?

    Okay, I'll even explain why its boring. Assuming of course the English Title isn't near to the original. Like some of the original series titles. Since I can't really argue uncreativity in those cases since, the English would be just as uncreative.

    Actually, I'm not sure I want to do every title of the whole Pokemon anime series, that could end up being 500+ titles, how about just the first "series", (up to Orange Islands). EDIT: Though now that I actually see tht titles, I think I took the easy way out, I'm sure Johto League series would've had better "uncreative" titles. Darn looks like 4kids early (if it was 4kids), was generous.

    2nd Edit: Yeah there's hardly any Puns in the very beginning of the series, I apologize for the lack of uncreative titles to prove my point.

    3rd Edit: I want to be lazy, how about just ten titles. I want to do other things instead of this.



    The only reason I chose "the egg hatches" is because it was the first one I thought of that was real strong to convey how boring the Japanese titles can be compared to the English. If people like the titles to remain the same then I guess there's nothing wrong with it, but I just can't see why people like the Japanese titles in the first place. But whatever, whatever.

    Vic hopefully or Aaron.

    Yeah but I dont see TPCi translating all titles accurately Jnp people can't hold a secret. :P

    "Hinoarashi! I Got One!"
    "Full of Subame, Full of Danger! I Got One in the Forest of Touka!!"
    "Catch Yukiwarashi!"

    Wonder what those eps are gonna be about? They leave not one thing to the imagination.

    ^Ghost Pokemon and the Summer Festival Yeah when I watched that ep I was pissed that title lied I thought it was gonna be like a Bon Festival thing.

    All they did was use the names of the two original main games of the 4th gen to make the title.

    Personally, I liked the old titles 4Kids used before they started doing a lot of puns. But I think I'll like the titles TPCI comes up with if they're similar to the style of the first two of B&W.

    :( Wow, that new title is predictable. What is so wrong with 'Best Wishes' that I fail to see?
    It suddenly occurred to Domino that Team Rocket was a massive game of Telephone, using actual telephones, with real-life results that could be really damn scary (for other people, of course).

    It's called $$$$$ they'll do anything to keep breaking records and sells the way they keep doing every time a Pokemon game is released.

    :/ Yeah, that does certainly seem to be a driving factor. I hope at least that some effort is put into the dub - love seems too much to expect nowadays.

    Your entire list was basically you saying "the Japanese one doesn't sound like a title, but the English one does." Which isn't really much of an argument at all.

    Besides, Season One is a terrible one to bring up because a lot of the titles are more or less the same. When people complain about the English titles being terrible, they're referring to the more recent DP seasons, not stuff from over a decade ago.

    Um...it was. The whole episode takes place during a summer festival, which is why everyone's wearing yukata at the end of the episode and doing the bon odori.

    Color me shocked when I saw what the first two BW dub titles were going to be. It looks like it isn't just the fanbase that's seeing a running theme of BW going back to its roots. Yes, this is me reiterating the same crap, but given that 4Kids went with straight episode title translations for the early-early parts of Kanto, and TCPI is suddenly following suit... well, I guess it'd be best to see how long this stays in place, but this is getting really eerie.

    And yes, I'm one of the crazy dorks who enjoyed the stupid pun titles the dub had, though sometimes they got lazy with those. But even the League had some mighty clever ones, as was mentioned. I still think my It's On Like Bastiodon! trumps Dealing with Defensive Types!, though.

    Anyway... yikes. Straight translations. We really have been sent back to 1997. I smell a funky-scented nostalgia trip!

    Yes I know but I thought Satoshi-Tachi were going to have a whole plot. Around it like them running around with Yukata and fans the whole episode and the Ghost being during the festival celebration like the Ghost invades and causes problems and stuff while there Fish Scooping or doing something else.
