Dub edits

  • From the scene when Pikachu and Meowth confront each other through the hole in the subway car's door to the scene when Ingo sends out his Chandelure, the music is changed to a single longer dub-original track. Two tracks from the Arceus: To a Conquering Spacetime Music Collection were removed.
  • During the ending scenes, an instrumental version of Black and White replaced Best Wishes' instrumental version.
