Question out of curiosity, in some anime when they say a move name (cheesy I know) they say it in normal japanese but in other animes they say them in english? Why? Does it sound cooler to them to be said in english?

Because the name of the attack is in English.

Because "Giga Drill Break" and "Bird, Go!" are just awesome. https://youtu.be/-pBIIh2dZB4

Probably the same reason that magic spells in Western fantasy (see: Harry Potter) are often in Latin (or faux-Latin): it's exotic sounding, but still vaguely recognizable. (The latter, because everyone in Japan takes some English in school.)
