    Default Should TPCi bring back Trainer's Choice?

    Since each episode has two or more commercial breaks, I think TPCi should bring back Trainer's Choice to go along with Who's That Pokemon in the dub, i mean they(obviously) know more about Pokemon than 4Kids did so errors like "Arbok evolves into Seviper" shouldn't happen again right?

    At the very least, TPCI would fix any mistake they could make instead of never doing anything to correct it. I wouldn't mind if they did bring back Trainer's Choice. It could be a good way to introduce some evolutions to the kids if they aren't familiar with some of them and make them think about strategies for type weaknesses/strength. I wouldn't be against it, but I won't lose any sleep if they just keep with the Who's That Pokemon segment instead.

    There's two ad breaks, it seems odd only one of them has something.

    Don't some of the other countries have the "who's that Pokemon?" before the first break and the answer after the second? That might work better. I think having two separate segments for each break would be a bit awkward, though.

    Trainer's Choice coming back with help from the actual Pokemon Company to get answers right would be nice (even though some of the mechanics they'd ask about are largely ignored by the anime...). Maybe they could alternate- like WTP for a couple of eps, then TC for another couple, and so on.

    I think two segments of WTP would be too much. It really only needs one.

    In the UK we only have one ad break per half hour show anyway, so it's not really an issue for me.

    Though I would take a competently-done version of Trainer's Choice over the ridiculously easy Who's That Pokemon, given the choice.

    Personally, I think they should take these segments off completely, as I feel the anime has long since surpassed these things.

    They should keep "Who's That Pokémon?" and bring back the S1 music, for nostalgia's sake.

    Maybe they could also have Mokuba Kaiba make a guest appearance...

    Here in Latin America we have two, three or sometimes four ad breaks that are randomly placed throughout the episode. It doesn't matter if someone is talking, or a Pokémon uses an attack, the episode just fades-out and fades-in no matter when. I guess that's one of the reasons some international versions have the WTP answer after the whole episode, so another eyecatch like Trainer's Choice would leave us totally messed up.

    In my opinion, Trainer's Choice would be nice to have instead of more obvious questions like "Who's that Pokémon", but I think they should do it during and starting with a new series instead of changing it in the middle of one like 4Kids did in AG.

    Sure: I actually liked the idea of that segment back in the 4Kids dub. It'd be nice to see it make a comeback one day.

    All I want is something pretty. The Japanese Dare Da? part looks a lot prettier than what looks a bit like a powerpoint presentation in the dub. <.<

    I agree. In the dub, it just looks like they took a PP, put some checkerboard animation behind it, and there we go, WTP!

    Much better than NOTHING, though, like in BF and DP. Can't complain about that. :)

    I feel that the reason of that is because Dare Da? wasn't re-introduced yet when the dub decided to use it. I'm pretty sure that if they started to use it from BW001 in the original, TPCi would at least try to mimic it.

    True. I have a feeling they would. It was actually due to them that WTP was reintroduced, so if anything, I should be thanking them for that. :)

    The Japanese version of XY is using an eye catch similar to Trainers Choice, now would be a great time for TPCI to bring it back for the XY dub.
