How much music was kept again.

Also there's almost a whole minute of silence which really surprised me. However this silence does replace a japanese track (BW M45 battle) and interestingly the silence lasts the same amount of the time as the japanese track does which implies to me that they were going to keep it but maybe accidentally deleted the file (which is not the first time that has happened0

What is Akhil Gopal even thinking? I know it's not Ed Goldfarb who does the actual replacement but just the re-scoring itself: good grief Akhil, make up your mind man. I should be happy, I know, since a breath of silence is something to appreciate given we never get it these days but this is genuinely weird (at the same time). It could be worse, though, I remember Movie 17's dub was the only wall-to-wall never-shutting-up film in the entire English dub of Pokémon (yes, even 4Kids' first 3 kept several silent moments throughout, believe it or not even if 1 & 3 didn't keep any OST- 2 kept 2 tracks & both were TR motto pieces, ironically enough).

Thank you for recording the amount kept, I'll go add it to the list (saves me time, the dub is a chore for me these days, but I'm glad some of you enjoy it regardless or even love it!). 3/16 (18.8%) kept here, since I always remove the eye-catches & next episode preview tracks as those aren't part of the actual episode.

Wow anymore examples of these accidentally deletions?

I'm sure the dubs music is ok by itself in abu blue but it just shouldn't be replacing the OST from the original.

That's how I felt about the 4Kids/TAJ dub music for the first 10 years: after that, more or less, I didn't care for the dub music through the rest of the run (I'll concede Goldfarb's JN score is better than SM's on its own, worse than XY's though to me- still feels really bland/generic to me and the flute synth is occasionally annoying and misplaced by Gopal in battles). The real issue is indeed replacing the OST from the original in 2023, at a time most dubs keep it all intact (it's still to make royalties as Eric Stuart said, glad he just told us the truth on why it's done to this day).
