After Diamond & Pearl, Black & White and the Virbank City Gym battle, I've grown to love the fact that the anime starts at around the same time as we get the games (by US dates at least). The main reason this has been possible is because the games came out 3-6 months after Japan. But now we have a simultaneous worldwide release for the games and it would feel weird to be watching an anime based on the Decolora islands! The dubbing team has already reduced the gap from about 5 or 6 months at the start of BW to 3 months at the release of B2W2, so it seems they are capable of speeding up at least a little bit to time it for the games.
I noticed that if the dub keeps going 1 episode a week, Alexa and her Kalos Pokémon will debut in the anime shortly after X and Y are released. This would be a nice compromise but I'd still be quite annoyed. :P
So what do people think? Simultaneous dub? Utilising their gap-shortening skills again? Alexa being used instead of the actual XY anime and delaying it until next year?
I think it is worth noting that since 4kids lost the show, the dubbing team seems to have had no issue with catching up to the games. Makes you wonder if they would have a problem with a simultaneous dub or at least a dub with an even smaller gap.
And yes, this topic exists because the announcement for Pocket Monsters XY has significantly reduced my hype for the dub's Episode N conclusion and Decolora Adventure arc. :P
