Pokemon is dubbed in a lot of different languages and this is a thread where people from non-english speaking countries can say what they think about their dub, maybe you´ve got a few samples of the dub as well?

I´ve got a link to the homepage of the channel which airs pokemon in germany. They´ve got a special event and you can watch a few random pokemon clips at their page:

so, what d you think about the german dub?
I like Ash´s voice, and team rocket sounds just cool. I prefer the japanese original, but the german voices aren´t so bad ( I can´t stand US-Ash for some reason...)


I´d like to hear the italien dub as well


( the link should be allowed because it is from the official channel which airs pokemon as I said)

Last warning. Keep it up and you're gone. Tired of your unnecessary posts.

The German voices aren't bad..but there's like, zero emotion in any of the humans. o_o They all sound like they're reading their lines.

A good dub is definately the Spanish language dub. It's pretty much the same as the English dub, but the voices are so much more interesting. Pop in Mewtwo Returns on DVD. It has the Spanish dub on it. :x

Indeed. The Spanish dub (Latin American) is good, the VA's do put some effort on their job, and the voices fit the characters very well.

The only bad thing about the spanish dub is that sometimes they commit a lot of mistakes and they do some weird stuff... you know, for example, once Brock called May "Misty"; and I think May has had three voices so far o_O;;

I know what the Kanto Trio's French names are-Sacha, Ondine, and Pierre, respectively.

Is there a pun in "pierre"? I wonder why they chose that name for takeshi.

And it´s true. the spanish dub is probably the best european pokemon dub, I saw once a clip from a hoenn episode, so I can´t tell how misty sounds like.

Sometimes the german dub voices suck really bad..mostly ash´s new voice actor (urgs...) but misty´s voice is really popular here in germany.
I find it funny that meowth´s english voice actor said that the german meowth (mauzi) scares him ^^

Meh. I liked the French version on the Destiny Deoxys DVD. Ash sounded a lot more like whatever his age is. And Brock's flirting voice was hilarious. XD

I'm from Australia too, but don't we get the American dubbed version? Just wondering...

Anyway, I've seen the dub in French, Spanish, German and Japanese...I suppose I can understand why people like the Spanish version, though I have to say that Brock's voice is.. higher.. (don't know how else to describe it). Just out of curiosity is there a Chinese dubbed version? If so I want to see an episode

Yeah, that's his name, Ash and Misty keep their names I think
