    You mean, you don't have an idea what's the title about, or what's the episode about?

    The title is a pun on a LEGENDARY song title.
    The episode is about well... too many spoilers...

    After 12 years of being a Pokemon fan, I'm officially quitting. This is not a rage quit and it has nothing to do with the Pokemon franchise. It's also NOT a sudden decision - I've planned it for months but I decided to stay a true, active Pokemon fan until the very last day. The reason for my leave is the fact that I'm starting my studies at the Uni and I decided that it's a perfect moment to move on with my life. I'll never forget all these awesome years and Pokemon will always be a part of my childhood memories. Goodbye friends! Thank you.

    Another week, another title. This time it's the turn of Pachirisu in Hippodon's Mouth! For Americanisation it becomes:

    533 - Sleight of Sand!

    Obviously a pun on Sleight of Hand, a well known expression...

      Obvious to the maximum. It'd be dumb to not get the pun. It's an average title, IMO. We've had worse. *points to Bibarel Gnaws Best!*

      Heh I like the dumb puns, I find them funny in a cheesy way. Not Bibarel Gnaws Best though...Maybe because it doesn't rhyme.

      Meaning I haven't watched it, I said I haven't watched the episode so I don't know what the title has in common with the episode haha. But I don't want to know, I'll wait and see

        Makes sense, as you-know-who returns, so the deceptive quality of the title is apt.

        Spoiler:
        Yep, the return of Butch and Cassidy, and the debut of their wacky new Pokemon.

              Oh, yeah. Hehe. After viewing the spoilers, I just focused on the characters and their Pokes, and forgot about the rest. Silly Charaxes. Heh.

                  Apparently it's a reference to some odd business strategy used in corporations. Why use it for a Gym Batle, I don't know.

                    It's also a nice double meaning for Maylene as she...

                    Spoiler:
                    ... lost to Paul, becoming disillusioned with herself as a Gym Leader. Her Lucario then slapped her upside the head, so to speak.


                    Why not reference the Peter Principle or Murphy's Law, then? Heh.

                    *closes eyes at spoilers* I like this title because of the alliteration! You know, there aren't many PUSA puns about Pokemon. I don't mind, I think I prefer it this way, I just noticed

                      That's okay, as I think we've become a little spoiler dependant, lately. Shifty eyes. At least, the wait time isn't so bad, as it had been in the 4Kids years.

                      Haha I was wondering this a few days ago. They must hire about 20 people to sit in a room and search for names of TV shows, movies and sayings. Another 20 are the people who make the puns out of the phrase the other group choose. They used to have 22 people making up puns, but the other 2 suggested to keep the original title.

                        I'm starting to become an intellectual shill. Heh.

                        Well, the obvious line is "crossing the line." Although, there is a term -- not sure of the origin -- where "the battle lines have been crossed." I think that's what PUSA is going for, by adding the two.

                        Of course, if they were ambitious, they'd reference "Crossing the Rubicon" in that, which is essentially the same thing.

                        For unfamiliar: "Crossing the Rubicon" is a popular idiom meaning to go past a point of no return and refers to Julius Caesar crossing the river in 49 BC deliberately as an act of war.

                        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubicon

                        Your mini-history lesson for today. Then again, PUSA alluded to the Keystone Kops, recently, so I don't know what their point of reference is, anymore. Heh.

                          Well, the obvious line is "crossing the line." Although, there is a term -- not sure of the origin -- where "the battle lines have been crossed." I think that's what PUSA is going for, by adding the two.

                          Of course, if they were ambitious, they'd reference "Crossing the Rubicon" in that, which is essentially the same thing.

                          For unfamiliar: "Crossing the Rubicon" is a popular idiom meaning to go past a point of no return and refers to Julius Caesar crossing the river in 49 BC deliberately as an act of war.

                          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubicon

                          Your mini-history lesson for today. Then again, PUSA alluded to the Keystone Kops, recently, so I don't know what their point of reference is, anymore. Heh.

                          I would assume that by "Crossing the Battle line" this is a reference to the japanese episode, I think it was: DP 67: Hikari's First Gym Battle!. Meaning that since Dawn is usually in the contest theme she is stepping out of her battling style for a little bit to help a friend (Maylene). So Dawn crossed that line from contest battling to Gym Battling, it least for one episode >_>'.

                            Well, yeah, now that you think about it, you're probably right. Feels a tad silly.

                            Of course, it isn't like PUSA (or 4Kids, for that matter) ever explains the episode titles, or their rationale for the bizarre ones. My life would be easier if they could do that.

                              Su. I don't know. I felt like this dub title kinda was more like giving me the military feeling. Maybe the world battle was what made me feel that. I mean it kinda makes sense what Charaxes said where it came from but it kidna just rought when I think about it. Su. Still this is a battle episode. Teeheehee

                              So it's just a pun on "a fighting chance"? Not really a pun then. I want a rhyming pun.

                                  Originally, I was going to be facetious about this, but I'll go the serious way, as well.

                                  Serious: Sometimes, yes, the obvious route is the right one. My thought process has been known for taking the more obscure choice whilst the obvious one is staring me in the face. Granted, I'm less oblivious these days, but it's still a gradual process. Not to mention, my track record has been quite solid in deducing the recent rash of episode titles, plus the sheer fun of speculating. This is until PUSA bothers to give the fandom actual explanations for the titles, which I don't believe they will. Thus, it's up to the smarter fans to figure out what the true meaning is, as some can be real doozies to figure out.

                                  I'm not going to lose sleep if I'm off by one or two, or ten. It's just a show, so everyone should just relax.

                                  Now, for the facetious:

                                  "Oh, NoEz! I was wrong-ed in deducing a theme for a dub episode title for once! No more perfect record for Charaxes! Oh, life is meaningless! Curse PUSA for taking a logical approach, instead of the usual obscure phrase or quote that the fandom most likely wouldn't grasp! Curse PUSA's use of logic! Oh, the paiiiiiiiin!!!! And curse my trying to educate the masses for old things like Keystone Kops and Roman history. I r made of fail!

                                  Wry?!"

                                  In either case, it's "Pwned."

                                  Anyway, new episode title up, from Bulbapedia. Going with the DP numbering, as I'm too lazy to dig up the American numbering, at the moment.

                                  DP 69 - Enter Galactic!!

                                  I think the name and meaning is very obvious, but a little more clever for PUSA. I've always liked the word, "Intergalactic," and the always fun "Enter the (insert Big Bad's name)" that we see in media.

                                  So, there you go. Enjoy your mini-phonetics lesson.
