Default Hidden Meanings In American Episode Names

When the episodes come out in america, they have a different name that means something or is a parody. Especially Hoenn. like:

Shocks And Bonds is a parody of stocks and bonds regarding the stock market.

You Can Never Tailow(probably didn't spell it right) is a parody of the phrase you can never tell.

Do I Hear A Ralts? is a parody of a broadway play called Do I Hear A Waltz?

get where i'm going with this?

Personally, decipher what it is in Japan and then put it as English. Then give us the theme song, the American themes are so annoying.
