I'm quite surprised the Pikachu special is getting dubbed and out of order just like the 3rd Mega Evolution special. And darn it, dubbers, why must you not give Clement's Bunnelby character development for the U.S. audience?
Remember when you thought this episode was getting skipped in the English dub? Turns out it will be airing in the US after all, on November 21st, but unfortunately this places its dub continuity out of order compared with Japan since over there it aired before the Dendemille Town Showcase episode.
Speaking of out-of-order, it appears XY087 (where Clemont revealed how he got Bunnelby) might end up getting skipped since no US airdate was revealed, in a similar fashion to the 1 Hoenn and 2 Sinnoh clip show episodes.
I still feel what people say in YouTube comments that Crash needs a new game. Spyro got ruined when Activision stepped in. I blame it all on my nostalgic connection to the original Crash and Spyro games here.
Then why didn't the change in protagonists in Yu-Gi-Oh! and Digimon help their ratings? Not to mention the hype towards the return of the old cast from Digimon (one of the users you agree admitted that he never followed Digimon).
