The I hate 4kids forum

Lets kick that old dead horse by remembering why 4kids was such a lousy company, and why they deserved to go out of business.

    Pokemon's dub

    Post by Admin on Thu Feb 12, 2015 9:27 pm

    Many say that Pokemon was likely 4kids best dub (which is actually sad), but was it truly that great a dub if you look back? Not really. In addition to skipping vital episodes like the Dratini episode, 4kids also turned riceballs into doughnuts/cookies/sandwiches, and many other dumb edits. Topics worth talking about: the riceball edits, trainers choice (especially the one about Arbok evolving into Seviper), Pokemon Chronicles, later seasons that used less of the original BGM, and skipped episodes.

The names, Ash, Brock, Misty, Jessie, James, Meowth, Delia, Max, May, Butch, Cassidy, Gary, Professor Oak, etc. were all FINE and the theme song were very fitting and cool. What the HELL could you have to hate on them for? NOTHING! If ANYTHING is so so so wrong here it's your comment.

    Hey now, there's no excuse for name calling here, settle down.

    "Oh no! It's a riceball! Quick, make it a cracker before kids LEARN something!" Honestly, that's one of the things that pisses me off about their dubs, their obvious hatred for the culture the anime CAME from. Cutting out the whole thing with James having inflatable breasts, ok, sure I'll give them that (it was weird to begin with); but censoring FOOD......Seriously? What the f**k!? Like any kid is really gonna pay attention to the food? And even if they did care enough to ask what a riceball is, what's the harm? It's just something from another culture, stop with the racism already.

    You're so ignorant it kills me. It's not that they HATE Japanese culture you pencil stem. It's that kids would find it odd and it may be a distraction. 4Kids changed them for the purpose of giving the kids better ease with what they see that wouldn't look so odd to them. It has nothing to do with 4Kids hating Japanese culture. Why do you mugshots have to take things out of context? Then you wonder why I am so on your cases so much. You are too ignorant to understand the obvious and take things the wrong way. Stop it. You pity several fools.

    I remember as a kid finding those doughnuts to be kinda weird looking. There were other edits I remember finding pretty distracting as well.

    Yeah, they MADE it distracting by calling a ball of rice a "doughnut". Everyone knows what a doughnut looks like and that in no way, shape, or form resembles one.

    Of course you didn't question it, you're a fucking idiot. Any kid with half a brain can tell that's not a god damn doughnut.

    It was ok. That doughnut scene was atrocious though.

    I would actually say that the dub really started to decline around Hoenn season. It was at that point 4kids decided to replace even more music than they used to, and pretty much treated it like all their other bad dubs, and don't get me started on chronicles.

    Dogasu has it covered

    Some even think this dub of Chronicles is One Piece bad, and I can see why.

    The new dub replaces music too though and the voices are bad.

    I blame Tom Wayland for the new dubs problems, he used to work for 4kids, and now he works on Pokemon under new management.

    Tom Wayland was the voice director for Mew Mew power right? That explains a lot
