I always love the movies, they have much better animation and story than the (ugh) TV series. Hopefully the Japanese score will be retained as well. I just hope YTV doesn't cut out scenes to save time like they did with Dragonball Evolution.

It isn't, as usual.

Though I think the article made a mistake. Resharim is the White Hero Pokemon, not Zekrom. Victini and the White Hero Resharim and Victini and the Black Hero Zekrom are the titles. Looks like it's backwards.

Don't be surprised if they do, especially if their on-air host keeps popping in every commercial segment, unless they're doing that for padding.

Actually, IIRC, ever since DuArt and Video took over the English dub in Season 11 (and TAJ Productions before hand for Seasons 9-10, but not 100% sure), the musical score has been 100% retained, including the movies.

I watched one of episode of the dub of Best Wishes once to see who voiced who, and the background music was changed, so they still do it like 4Kids does. Not sure how often or to what extent since I only watched one episode, but it's still being messed around with from what I saw. I'd also assume all the vocal inserts are changed as well, like the song which played during Satoshi and Shinji's final battle in Diamond & Pearl, or the openings and endings.

Its not a mistake. English version has it to match the Pokemon version mascots of the games, so Zekrom White, Resharim Black.

Oh.

...Wow, that's pretty confusing, all things considered.

Actually the original score was retained, according to the end credits. All of the movies since the Celebi one has retained the original soundtrack.
