Aw. I was hoping Together+2008 would beat ATBAPM+Whiteberry... Oh well.

Wonder how long this one'll last. Hopefully at least up until DP150. TTEchidna 02:32, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Thank god! Aw how cute. It's sung by Ash and Dawn. I'm looking forward to this one. --ケンジガール 05:28, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
Pearlshipping evidence? We may just see. TTEchidna 06:21, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Dogasu said on the forums that "High Five!" is a more accurate translation, as "high touch" is essentially Japanese slang that has borrowed/manipulated an English phrase. I'm going to use "high five" on Bulbanews because I believe it's more accurate and much more understandable by English-speakers. I won't change it on Bulbapedia unless others wish to do so. --Argy 07:09, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

I was actually wondering if the "High Touch" referred to the high fives they keep giving each other. TTEchidna 07:20, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Finally! The OP is changing. I can't wait to see how this one turns out. Hopefully of good quality. Together was nice, but it's time for a change.

Nice to see that Rica is singing for DP. CosmosShipper 3:47 19 September 2008 (EST)

eh....

i'll use this as an example

At about 00:44 - 00:46 i think i can hear a third voice in the back.~Ποκεμανιακα0β 02:50, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

And it sounds a bit like Takeshi~Ποκεμανιακα0β 03:08, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Going with a no on that one. Think it's just Rica's voice doubled by the editors. Besides, Takeshi doesn't really sound like a woman. And is it just me on this one, or is it a very Ash opening, Dawn has a single contestish scene and Ash gets about half the song as a focus on him. Also, is that Pluto or Cyrus in the flaming background? Aura-Knight 05:08, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
Really? to me it sounds like 3 voices and one is a male's. I'm just saying that they might have added in his voice for that single part, though unlikely~Ποκεμανιακα0β 05:11, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
And I stuck it through a highacoustic earphones so i can hear it really loud~Ποκεμανιακα0β 05:14, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
Still a no, check 41-43, when her voice doubles. Same thing a few seconds later Aura-Knight 15:11, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
yes, but that's like 2 of her voices, in the other one, the second voice sounds much masculine~Ποκεμανιακα0β 15:29, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

With all due respect, that sounds like a machine translation. Here's my first draft.
  • (Dawn:) Getting better in a fight, yet still fighting,
  • there are a bunch of things I want to say,
  • but number one is
  • "thanks for being here for me."
  • (Ash:) No road is too long with good company.
  • I know a bunch of familiar faces,
  • but, to tell the truth,
  • I'm glad you're here for me.
  • (D:) Nice Partner
  • (A:) Nice Rival
  • (D:) Have a push!
  • (A:) Have a tug!
  • (both:) Have a look at the sun, it's a bit bright, huh? (hey hey hey)
  • If things are going well, high five! (hey hey hey)
  • Never again are we caving in.
  • If we are together
  • (A:) it's easy to make sense of things. GO GO GO (hey hey hey)
  • (b:) Things are going well, aren't they, high five! (hey hey hey)
  • Shake hands with your battle-opponent.
  • If we're together.
  • (A:) we can go further! GO GO GO
  • (b:) GO GO GO GO GO GO
I am a native speaker of English, and a Japanese-language novice. Thanks to a couple of years of Latin, I know how to translate using a dictionary and grammar, however, I'd like someone else to check these before I post them to the page. Translation notes:
  • L 1: not at all confident of this line.
  • L 2: substituted EN idiom "a bunch" for 'ippai'/'one cup'
  • L 4, 8: "being here for me," literally 'being.present - doing.for'
  • L 5: This translation comes from the Tanaka corpus, written by native Japanese speakers of English. It sounds like a proverb to me.
  • L 11-12: literally "pushing - giving", "tugging - giving"
  • L 13: "The look-up-to sun is a bit bright."
  • L 15: I read "hekonjatte" as an abbreviation for "hekonde shimatte"/ "caving.in finished.with"
  • L 17: "to make sense of things" translation of "akirameru no wa", assuming akirameru means "to clarify"「明らめる」. "Akirameru" is a homophone, also meaning "to abandon, give up on" 「諦める」, I can't be sure without the kanji--though I think this interpretation makes sense in context.

Yes! and long time no talk Netto-kun~Ποκεμανιακα0β 22:00, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
Marianmister, where did you translate that...it's all wrong, especially the fouth to last and third to last line; I know enough to know that it says, "If we're together," and "we can go (or "travel", depending on the word choice) further".-Tavisource 04:06, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

No because that's still a PocketMonsters fansub. Someone just ripped it and posted it on Youtube. If they don't want us to use it then we can't. Though I do find it stupid that people have to act like they own lyrics and translations just because they translated it... It's not like its fan art or something. --ケンジガール 04:58, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

--Nick., something to say? 18:01, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

How Long?

How long is this page going to be protected? Because the opening has changed since it's debut, can't the say the same about this page. --Dman dustin 18:46, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Odds are until someone can provide us with a freelance English translation. The page's protection, unfortunately, is based on translations since someone had the audacity to claim that a translation we were using was outright stolen from them. The same goes for Surely Tomorrow as well, as it's also protected over a translation squabble. --Shiningpikablu252 19:27, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

If that's the case, then a mod needs to update it. --HoennMaster 03:27, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Please discuss!!

Why are the English words capitalized?

They don't put any real emphasis on them when it is sung, so why capitalize them?--RexRacer -talk 03:10, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

GOOD GOOD SMILE, that's why. As long as they aren't capitalized in the English one it's cool. TTEchidna 03:12, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
I know this has a lot o time here but I'll answer the question anyway. They are capitalized because they are english words and when in japan they use words of other languages they use another kind of "letters" that ared called KATAKANA and the "normal" "letters" they use are HIRAGANA, so when you put it in romanji (the kind of letters we use) they should become capitalized to show they are originaly written in KATAKANA and not HIRAGANA :D I hope you understood me Rex! :D YukitoOoO 22:14, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

We don't want a picture of the album cover. We want a screenshot of the actual opening. Besides, the album cover stands for both High Touch! and Surely Tomorrow. --ケンジガール 15:06, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

That one Untranslated Line

I don't know Japanese, but I've seen enough episodes in Japanese to recognize that "baburu kōsen!" is revering to BubbleBeam, which Piplup is using all the time. It also mirrors Ash's lines about Thunderbolt. If someone could use that insight to translate the rest of the line, that'd be good, right?--Purimpopoie 03:17, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Take aim with BubbleBeam! Done. Odd that there was just that one line missing, but all cool now. --Sato 09:48, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
It was removed because there was a mistranslation that the original translator made. They thought it was batoru (battle) instead of baburu (bubble). Thank you for your help. --ケンジガール 10:18, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Third Opening?

I suggest we count High Touch! as DP's second opening, rather than the third, since Together2008 is exactly the same as the original Together with the remixed song being literally the only difference between the two. If we leave High Touch! as the third opening, then by that logic Get Fired up, Notched-ear Pichu! should be the seventh ending instead of the fourth, because of the two remixes of By Your Side ~Hikari's Theme~ and one of Message of the Wind.

The Whiteberry version of Aim to be a Pokémon Master is a different story (aside from still being the same song, thus no need to make a separate article for the remix) because it, unlike Together2008, had entirely new animation (being a different region/saga/arc and all) and is separated from the original by two other openings.

May I ask something?

Why is it that we need to show the lyrics for the TV version and the full version? They're exactly the the same. This also applies to some other songs. If we have the full version then the TV version is no longer useful. Unless of course the lyrics are different, which they're not. I want to know what others think before I remove it. --ケンジガール 06:09, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Delete the TV version if the Full version is exactly the same as the TV version, I think. If they're not, it's worth noting to show the difference between versions. Kevzo8 06:13, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

High Touch! 2009

They are using this version as of either DP134 (Which is on right now) or it may of debuted earier--☆Coolピカチュウ! 10:06, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

It's from DP134 onwards. J-J-M 12:58, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Dawn's Ambipom

I think Dawn's Ambipom was not removed, due to he/she is in training...--Ruixiang95 10:02, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

4:3 Safe Area

I noticed that all the action on the HD Version happens in the Centre "Third". If I was to Crop the image to match SDTV in 4:3 format, one way would make it look exactly like the SD Version was before the move to HD. (Keeping the Height, and removing the sides). The images here should give an idea what I mean: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspect_ratio_%28image%29#Visual_comparisons (Same Height) and http://dogasu.bulbagarden.net/comparisons/diamond_pearl/ep121_hd.html This is another reason that I think they had the HD Version planned and drawn out before hand. If I had access to Clean Versions of the opening I'd happily show you what I mean. Big Nutter 17:11, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
