    I like a few of these, pity I could only choose one. :P I chose Paul's "pathetic" line (Japanese equivalent was something along the lines of tsukaenai...?) mainly because it's Paul, most of the time he was absolutely correct when saying so, and because it's just a very nice and different sort of phrase than the happy/funny/annoying/optimistic catchphrases that make up the rest of these. Plus it was always fun to watch Ash get riled up with it; it's my favorite way of getting Ash mad. XD

    But I also like Haruka's "kamo" (May didn't really get an equivalent, did she?), TR's blasting off again is a given (them literally blasting off in jetpacks in BW without saying a word is so inferior :P), Barry's tendency to fine everyone and everything as well as his Japanese's nandaiyo... and of course Tasting Time! And I was okay with daijoubu/no need to worry, too. The rest I'm either neutral to or hate with a burning passion (I think only one or two of those catchphrases invoke my rage, no prizes for guessing which ones).

    My favourite catchphrase is "Let's Get Busy!" (I think it's something along the lines of "Here we go!" in the Original). It signalled the start of the contests, and especially suited Lilian's demeanour as driving the spunky excitement into the Contests. It was a pleasant catchphrase that neatly allowed you know when the appeals would commence.
    "Calculated tactics, mental strength, accurate judgement, and being blessed with gorgeous looks! The person who has all of these is...!"

    Mr. Sukizo's "remarkable". He didn't appear frequently enough for it to become annoying in any way, and I liked to see how he could squeeze the word into every sentence he spoke.

    Who is this git?

    "Team Rocket's blasting off again" was the dub's replacement for "Ya na kanji", not "ii kanji" (which didn't really get a dub equivalent). The TRio's song about speedy success and conquering Sinnoh is still one of my favourite catchphrases.

    But nothing compares to: I LOVE THIS HOLE/BASTIODON/DEFENCE!!!

    Actually in the Victini movies when they blasted off they said, "Feels Good!" iirc. So, yeah it came off as kinda weird hearing their phrase translated.

    All the variations on Jessie's wobbuffet's catchphrase.
    Not sure if it counts but Pikachu's pikaspeak. The way he has recognizable words for various things. Pika-pi!

    Even though I am a Dento fan, I'll go with Jun's catchphrase here. It's really fun to see him getting all frustrated and the catchphrase itself doesn't annoy me at all.

    It just amuses me whenever I hear "It's tasting time!"
