you do realize that pokemon is more prominent in america and japan right i mean like you said your self some countries are way way behindNot that I think your theory is unrealistic, but why would they do this for just the English dub? Pokemon is dubbed in several languages and many of those are way behind the American dub. XY will be an international release, not just for Japan and America so essentially, for your idea to work, they's have to allow the entire world to catch up on the anime which is nearly impossible. Unless every country besides Japan dubs more episodes quicker and shows multiple new episodes in a row.I think it will end around the time of the new games release. First of all I think they want both the dub and sub episodes to be shown at around the same time, since the games are releasing at the same time. Don't you think it would be weird if the Japanese and American release of XY happened at the same time, but the anime in America still had a ways to go to catch up. I mean they did this in Advanced Generation, but still, they showed at least preview episodes. Right now they are only 93 days behind anyway. My theory is that they spread out the DA episodes to allow the English dub to catch up, since they take breaks during the summer anyway for movies and stuff like that. They may even skip a dubbing of DA in order to get in closer to the Japanese. I mean this does seem a bit unrealistic, but it is possible.
