Predicted English title: The Brotherly Battle of Striaton's Leaders!

Real title: A Call for Brotherly Love!

Predicted English title: Mining for Badges in Driftveil Gym!

Predicted English title: Sigilyph and Cofagrigus in the Black Ruins!

Actual title: Explorers of the Hero's Ruin!

Predicted English title: The Revenge of Sunglasses Krokorok!

Japanese: ハチク登場!ウルガモスの聖なる山 ! ! Hachiku Appears! The Holy Mountain of Ulgamoth!!

Predicted English title: TBD

Actual title: Guarding the Guardian of the Mountain!

Thoughts: Forgettable title, not terribly memorable episode.


Japanese: セッカジム戦!氷のバトルフィールド!! Sekka Gym Battle! Ice Battlefield!!

Predicted English title: Icirrus Gym — Ice Battlefield!

Thoughts: It works. I suppose my guess was a little dull.

Predicted English title: TBD

Actual title: Crisis at Ferroseed Research!

Thoughts: Wow, I'm surprised it was so straightforward.

Japanese: ポッチャマVSヤナップ!華麗なるバトル!! Pochama VS Yanappu! The Magnificent Battle!!

Predicted English title: TBD

Actual title: Piplup, Pansage and a Meeting of the Times!

Thoughts: The day this came out, I was going to enter Diamonds and Pearls Are Forever! as my guess. This one is kind of an awkward attempt to get at the same meaning of the Japanese title.


Japanese: イワークの島でサバイバル! Survival on the Island of Iwark!

Predicted English title: Survivors on Onix Island!

Actual title: Expedition to Onix Island!

Thoughts: Got it close. Good title.

Predicted English title: Pokémon the Movie 2012: Keldeo VS. Kyurem

Actual title: Pokémon Movie 15: Kyurem VS. the Sword of Justice

Thoughts: Alliteration? Should have been expected.


Japanese: パワーバトル!アイリスVSヒカリ! Power Battle! Iris VS Hikari!

Predicted English title: The Dawn of Dragonite!

Actual title: Battling Authority Once Again!

Predicted English title: TBD

Actual title: Ash, Iris and Trip: Then There Were Three!


Japanese: 別れと出会いのジュニアカップ! The Junior Cup of Farewells and Meetings!

Actual title: Goodbye, Junior Cup - Hello Adventure!

Thoughts: Boy, they dropped the ball on missing that pun.


Japanese: セイガイハジム戦! マンタインVSダイケンキ!! Seigaiha Gym Battle! Mantain VS Daikenki!!

Predicted English title: None

Actual title: The Road to Humilau!

Thoughts: I suppose this makes sense given that the battle is only the last few minutes of the episode.


Japanese: ポケモン保育園は大騒ぎ!ワシボンとバルチャイ! Pokémon Nursery School Uproar! Washibon and Valchai!!

Predicted English title: Rufflet, Vullaby and the Daycare Disaster!

Actual title: Unrest at the Nursery!

Predicted English title: A Crisis of Abyssal Proportions! Part 1 and Part 2

Actual titles: Meloetta and the Undersea Temple! and Unova's Survival Crisis!

Thoughts: I'm really disappointed they didn't go with the pun at least for the second half. "Unova's Survival Crisis" is an incredibly boring title.

Predicted English title: A Day at the Opera!

Actual title: Beauties Battling for Pride and Prestige!

Characters & voice actors


Predicted dub name: Tony (Kenji-girl likely has it right)

VA: Tom Wayland

Actual name: Toby

Actual VA: Eli James

Thoughts: Kenji-girl did have it right, just not in the way I expected.


Predicted dub name: Robert

VA: Billy Bob Thompson

Actual name: Robert

Actual VA: Tom Wayland

Thoughts: Name was obvious, but one week off on Wayland. Oh well.


Predicted dub name: Cathy

VA: Leah Clark

Actual name: Katharine

Actual VA: Kerry Williams

Thoughts: Right around the name, but for the VA... that sure isn't a name I ever thought I'd hear again.


Predicted dub name: Bobby

VA: Vic Mignogna

Actual name: Bobby

Actual VA: Darren Dunstan

Thoughts: In hindsight, Mignogna was a bad call. I really should remember Darren Dunstan more often though now that he's back.

Charles/Kaiketsu A☆Gilder

Predicted dub name: Swift Knight Ace☆Celgor

VA: Crispin Freeman or Christopher R. Sabat

Actual name: The Mighty Accelguard

Actual VA: Dan Green

Thoughts: This might be the most brilliant dub name I've ever seen. Well done, TPCI! And welcome back to Dan Green, as well.

Professor Tsuraraa/Freege Man

Predicted dub name: Dr. Freeze/Cryogo-Man

VA: J. Michael Tatum

Note: I really wanted to put Professor Subzero as a prediction relating to another Schwarzenegger movie, but a Batman reference is far more likely to actually happen.

Actual name: Doctor Ferrara/Cryogonal Man

Actual VA: Joe Rodriguez

Thoughts: Interesting that they went for a sound-alike name to "Tsuraraa" instead of a translation. Cryogonal Man was predictable.


Predicted dub name: Hugo

VA: Vic Mignogna

Actual name: Lewis

Actual VA: Josh Ruben

Thoughts: His voice is okay, but Lewis? I don't get it.


VA: Dan Green or Marc Thompson

Actual VA: Sean Schemmel

Thoughts: Called it wrong, but I love what they did with his voice.

Cedric Juniper

VA: Troy Baker or Marc Thompson

Actual VA: Stan Hart

Thoughts: Oh wow. Remember what I said about Kerry Williams being a surprising name to see back? Multiply that by ten.


Predicted dub name: Nick

VA: Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld

Actual name: Mick

Actual VA: Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld

Thoughts: The name is one of those typical dub changes for the sake of changing something, but I actually got a voice actor right for once?!


Predicted dub name: Glenn

VA: Ben Wayland

Actual name: Glenn

Actual VA: Gary Mack

Thoughts: Easy one.


Predicted dub name: Thane

VA: Henry Wayland

Actual name: Sean

Actual VA: Eli James

Thoughts: I'm actually quite surprised they changed this.


VA: Trina Nishimura

Actual VA: Sarah Natochenny

Thoughts: I should have trusted my gut and went with Sarah Natochenny instead of taking the long shot I wanted to.


Predicted dub name: Miles

VA: Bill Tost

Actual name: Miles

Actual VA: H.D. Quinn

Thoughts: His name was obvious, but his voice was absolutely horrible. Bill Tost would have been much better.


Predicted dub name: Bryce

VA: Leah Clark

Actual name: Ricky

Actual VA: George Bailey

Thoughts: I'm disappointed TPCi didn't catch the reference.


Predicted dub name: Sagen

VA: Carter Cathcart

Actual name: Angus

Actual VA: George Bailey

Thoughts: Well, they took the names for these three in a totally different direction than I expected.


Predicted dub name: Sean

VA: Marc Thompson

Actual name: Getty

Actual VA: Benn Robbins

Thoughts: Not like this guy actually had a lot of dialogue to begin with.


Predicted dub name: Paula

VA: Sarah Natochenny

Actual name: Betty

Actual VA: Emily Jenness

Thoughts: I'll have to remember Emily Jenness for later ones. She gave Betty a great sinister-sounding voice.


Predicted dub name: Grace

VA: Lisa Ortiz

Actual name: Gail

Actual VA: Crystal Wilkinson

Thoughts: Another really pointless name change...


Predicted dub name: No guess

VA: Michael Alston Baley

Actual name: Delbert

Actual VA: Scott Williams

Thoughts: I guess that name was as good as one could hope for him. I'm not disappointed that I missed his VA, because even though I got the actor wrong he still sounded very close to what I expected.


Predicted dub name: Flora

VA: Leah Clark

Actual name: Flora

Actual VA: Lisa Ortiz

Thoughts: About as expected.


Predicted dub name: Edmond

VA: Jamie McGonnigal

Actual name: Edmund

Actual VA: Tom Wayland

Thoughts: I'm not counting his name as a miss, because "Edmond" and "Edmund" are both correct romanizations of his Japanese name, and if "Edmund" was being used, I would have guessed it. I never would have gotten his VA, because Tom Wayland took him in a direction I never expected.


Predicted dub name: Maxwell

VA: Vic Mignogna or J. Michael Tatum

Actual name: Montgomery

Actual VA: Nicholas DiMichele

Thoughts: I was completely off, but I really like how he was dubbed.


Predicted dub name: Grant

VA: Scottie Ray

Actual name: Ferris

Actual VA: Wayne Grayson

Thoughts: Meh on Ferris, but Grayson did his usual good job.


Predicted dub name: Stella


Actual name: Sierra

Actual VA: Samia Mounts

Thoughts: I actually like Sierra as a name more than Stella.


Predicted dub name: Sonny

VA: Billy Regan

Note: From sunny, related to the fact that all of the Pokémon he has ever been known to have are Fire-type.

Actual name: Shamus

Actual VA: Billy Bob Thompson

Thoughts: I can't help but wonder if he was named Shamus because of a certain incident brought up during the 2012 presidential campaign.


Predicted dub name: Roland or Rinzo

VA: Marc Thompson

Actual name: Rizzo

Actual VA: Tom Wayland

Thoughts: Or that.


VA: Dan Green

Actual VA: Benjamin Becker

Thoughts: This guy was good, I hope he gets another role.


Predicted dub name: TBD


Actual name: Marigold

Actual VA: Emily Jenness

Thoughts: Good name and voice.

Pinot Noir

Predicted dub name: TBD


Actual name: Ricard Nouveau

Actual VA: H.D. Quinn

Thoughts: I'm glad he got a good name. H.D. Quinn is far better as Ricard's voice than he was as Miles, too.

Mr. Hattori

Predicted dub name: Mr. Hattori


Actual name: Mr. Hatterly

Actual VA: Marc Thompson

Thoughts: Eh, it's more or less decent.

Clay (BW081)

Predicted dub name: Clayton

VA: Wayne Grayson

Actual name: Case

Actual VA: Eli James

Thoughts: Well, that's a random name.

Professor Marble

Predicted dub name: Doctor Marble

VA: Mike Pollock

Actual name: Professor Malveaux

Actual VA: Sean Schemmel

Thoughts: I like the name, but it's a little random, just like Case's.


Predicted dub name: Jaws

VA: Carter Cathcart

Actual name: Jules

Actual VA: Unknown

Thoughts: Meh. I think he was Carter Cathcart, but it's never been confirmed.

Gold (anime)

Predicted dub name: Mr. Gold

VA: Michael Alston Baley

Actual name: Mr. Gold

Actual VA: Marc Thompson

Thoughts: Got one!


Predicted English name: Venus (Hats off to you Kenji-girl, this one's excellent and I have to agree with it.)

VA: Carrie Savage or Dani Marcus

Actual name: Roxie

Actual VA: Alyson Rosenfeld

Thoughts: She got dubbed really well.


Predicted English name: TBD

VA: Julián Rebolledo

Actual name: Nate

Actual VA: Tom Wayland

Thoughts: See below.


Predicted English name: TBD


Actual name: Rosa

Actual VA: Lisa Ortiz

Thoughts: Rosa and Nate got a great pair of names to preserve the meaning of their original names.


Predicted English name: TBD

VA: Jason Griffith

Actual name: Hugh

Actual VA: Sean Schemmel

Thoughts: I'm kind of surprised they kept his name.


VA: Vic Mignogna

Actual VA: Jason Griffith

Thoughts: This one just didn't work.


Predicted English name: Albert

VA: Marc Diraison or J. Michael Tatum

Actual name: Colress

Actual VA: Sean Schemmel

Thoughts: Totally missed his name, but his voice at least sounded like what I hoped for.

Team Plasma

VA (female Grunt): Evelyn Lanto

Actual VA (female Grunt): Eileen Stevens

Thoughts: Meh.

Shadow Triad

VA (first member): Billy Regan

Actual VA (first member): Jason Griffith

Thoughts: This worked, but sounded totally different than what I expected.


VA: Billy Bob Thompson or Tom Wayland

Actual VA: Tom Wayland

Thoughts: Got it!


Predicted dub name: Jeremy

VA: Ted Lewis

Actual name: Jervis

Actual VA: Sean Schemmel

Thoughts: I suppose he needed a more generic butler name. Sean Schemmel did well as his voice.


Predicted dub name: Chris


Actual name: Chris

Actual VA: Lisa Ortiz

Thoughts: His name was easy to guess.


VA: Lisa Ortiz or Evelyn Lanto

Actual VA: Miriam Pultro


Predicted English name: Mario

VA: Jason Griffith

Actual name: Manning

Actual VA: Tom Wayland


Predicted English name: Ken

VA: Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld

Actual name: Kenton

Actual VA: Billy Bob Thompson


Predicted English name: TBD

VA: Marc Thompson

Actual name: Shepherd

Actual VA: Marc Thompson


Predicted English name: TBD

VA: Sean Schemmel

Actual name: Simeon

Actual VA: Unknown


Predicted English name: Marlena

VA: Sarah Natochenny

Actual name: Marris

Actual VA: Hilary Thomas

Thoughts: Always glad to see Hilary Thomas around.


Predicted English name: Kerry

VA: Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld

Actual name: Cassie

Actual VA: Sarah Natochenny


Predicted English name: Ricardo


Actual name: Ramone

Kyurem (M15)

VA: Dan Green

Actual VA: Marc Thompson

Thoughts: Marc voices all three of the Tao trio. Huh.

Keldeo (M15)

VA: Kerry Williams

Actual VA: Vic Mignogna

Thoughts: Well then, that came out of nowhere.

Cobalion (M15)

VA: Tom Wayland

Actual VA: H.D. Quinn

Thoughts: This guy really impresses me. He's improved in every role since he debuted.

Terrakion (M15)

VA: Sean Schemmel

Actual VA: Henry Carr

Thoughts: Another great new cast member.

Virizion (M15)

VA: Marc Thompson or Michele Knotz

Actual VA: Emily Williams

Thoughts: Virizion had a huge range her voice could have gone. Sounding just like Cynthia is one I didn't anticipate.


Predicted dub name: Malin

VA: Lisa Ortiz or Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld

Note: The original translation of this character's name was "Marin," at which point my guess of "Malin" was made.

Actual name: Malin

Actual VA: Erica Schroeder

Thoughts: Name was obvious, voice worked. Not like she did much...


Predicted dub name: Carsten

VA: Billy Bob Thompson

Note: Carsten is this character's German name.

Actual name: Cameron

Actual VA: Rory Max Kaplan

Thoughts: Well then, I didn't think his name would be changed to that. His voice is alright.


VA: Ted Lewis

Actual VA: Ted Lewis

Thoughts: Oh wow, I actually got this one! Too bad his voice ended up being awful anyway.


Predicted dub name: Layla

VA: Erica Schroeder

Actual name: Layla

Actual VA: Cristina Vee

Thoughts: The name was easy, but holy crap I did not see Cristina Vee coming. The show's really stepped up their game with casting.


Predicted dub name: Larry

VA: Marc Diraison

Actual name: Ridley

Actual VA: Tucker Allan

Thoughts: Well, at least he got a better name.

Soran and Riku

Predicted dub names: Skyler and Landon

VAs: Alyson Rosenfeld and Lisa Ortiz

Actual names: Soren and Rocko

Actual VAs: Brian Hovland and Matthew Charles


Predicted dub name: Sarah

VA: No guess

Actual name: Shannon

Actual VA: Carli Mosier

Thoughts: And after two Funimation VAs spoiled on Twitter - Vic Mignogna and Cristina Vee - one comes out of nowhere. Not that I'm complaining, she was great.


Predicted dub name: Martha

VA: Kayzie Rogers

Actual name: Martha

Actual VA: Unknown


Predicted dub name: Vernon

VA: Michael Sinterniklaas

Actual name: Virgil

Actual VA: Tom Wayland

Predicted dub name: Lloyd

VA: Vic Mignogna


Predicted dub name: Bradley

VA: Billy Bob Thompson

Anthea and Concordia

VAs: Erica Schroeder and Evelyn Lanto

Mewtwo *

VA: J. Michael Tatum or Patrick Seitz

Note: This movie is going to likely be dubbed during the summer of 2013, and I don't think Dan Green is going to come out of retirement yet to reprise his role from Mewtwo Returns.
