    Me again! Just a few dubbing-questions:

    1) WHO does the English dubbing for Pokemon? Do the English directors sit around a big table, watching a muted episode, then figure out what they just said compared to the translation/syllabols (sp?)/random guesses?

    2) Since you work alone from the other actors, have you ever discussed Pokemon in public, and have fans rush up for autographs?

    Hm, thanks, I'll keep that in mind! Though once my friend had a ton of honey before an audition, and her mouth was practically clamped shut, so she couldn't sing properly!

    That's pretty impressive if your voice can change so drastically so quickly! Even moreso if you can make sure all the characters act like they normaly do without getting them all mixed up!

    o.o Omfg, I LOVE Dan Green! His voice is possibly the sexiest one on earth, and he's one of the main reasons I love Mewtwo and Yami so much (I only found out recently he played both of these sexy boys).
    *sighs* And now that I know he's good looking, I have one more reason to think this man is awesome. I'll just try too hard not to swoon if I see a picture of him.

    1) Did you get to work with Dan Green a lot, and was he nice to work with?

    2) Have you ever met an actor/actress who wasn't nice/fun to work with, who was maybe a bit stuck up or arrogant, abused their 'powers' or you just generally didn't like? (Can be anyone you've ever worked with.)



    Again, thank you so much for answering my questions!

    I've a hypothetical question for you, Miss Blaustein. Suppose someone decided to make a live action Pokemon movie and they would like you to reprise your Meowth voice for the film. Would that be possible to do? If so, would you be interested in doing that?
    November 11, 1918 - At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ends. At 5 a.m. that morning, Germany, bereft of manpower and supplies and faced with imminent invasion, signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside Compiégne, France. The First World War left nine million soldiers dead and 21 million wounded, with Germany, Russia, Austria-Hungary, France, and Great Britain each losing nearly a million or more lives. In addition, at least five million civilians died from disease, starvation, or exposure.

    2. I understand you voice Solomon Moto, Yugi's grandpa. Well, when I watched the first episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! Dawn of the Duel, and I got to see young Solomon traveling to the Valley of the Kings and to the Pharaoh's tomb, I was happy to finally see that episode. But Solomon's voice was changed. Well, I was quite disappointed. I know he was younger, but don't you think you could have done his voice? All you'd have to do is make it a little less shaky and a little more firm and deep, or something like that. I simply prefer characters to keep the same VA no matter what age in most situations, and this is one of them. Can you tell me anything about this?

    BTW, sorry for such a long paragraph.
    1) We record them seperately

    2)I wanted to do young Solomon. The Producer didn't like the idea for some reason, I'd have done him in a similar voice to the one I used for Bruno from Pokemon.

    Hi, Maddie!

    I absolutely love your Meowth voice, and I did not know that you voice . I am an aspiring voice actress. What advice do you have for people such as myself who would like to do voice work for an anime?

    One more question - have you formed close friendships with your fellow voice actors?

    Thanks a bunch! ^^

    1) Practice with a Tape recorder. A Lot!

    Do you think Meowth should be like a movie star and live the rich mailbu life? I wrote a fanfiction about Meowth being famous that he can talk. I'm still working on it. Because deserves more attention for able to speak and you make his voice so great!

    1) Meowth may want to be a movie star and live a rich malibu life --but he's more likely to get a job sweeping floor4s in a pizza parlour in Brooklyn.

    1) Not for me, I have a knack for it.

    2) I did a lot of sound-alike work dubbing replacement dialogue for movies to get rid of cursing so it could air on television.

    3)I made a demo tape and just kept sending it out to recording studios until I started to get some work.

    It's beautiful thank you so much! You are quite talented. I've printed it out to hang on my fridge next to two other lovely pics from Stephanie.

    I don't think Pokemon will be as well written in English without her.

    2) Little kids have a knack for hearing my natural voice and knowing I play Meowth. Happens quite frequently when I'm around kids.

    1) I have had the good fortune to be directed by Dan Green on many different projects. He's a joy to work with and quite a talented director.

    2) Yes --but I won't name names

    Only if Meowth is CGI like Gollum in Lord Of The Rings and I get to do what Andy Serkis (The actor who played Gollum) did.

    I agree, I really mad when Togepi went with Misty just because it saw her first:\

    I have two more questions, if that's okay.

    1. I'm probably looking way too far into this, but in the episode Xatu the Future Meowth angrily said that he "spoke pokemon, not flag", but in That's Just Swellow, he was clearly using semaphore (or what was supposed to be semaphore). Was there any explanation, or was it just an oversight by the writers?

    2. Have you ever been in a fight with one of the other voice actors?

    1) Maybe he felt stupid not knowing "flag" and learned it later --you know Meowth --he hates to feel stupid and he never gives up.

    2) Never. I'm a lover not a fighter.

    I've got one question. Since you dubbed the seizure inducing episode, is it true the episode with Dratini was dubbed as well, and just not aired to due to gunplay?

    Will Kathy be writing the new episodes with the new VA or did Pusa get someone else?

    1) Do you watch the episode a couple of times with no sound before you attempt to match the voice flap? or just go in the studio and keep trying untill you get it right?

    No she won't. Part of my misgivings about the situation is that the entire cast and crew have been replaced. That includes the head writer.

    1) Nope. I go in cold

    I guess that's a good response, although I've never seen the Lord of the Rings, so I'm not sure what Serkis did. (imagines a CGI Meowth slapping a CGI Garfield for eating all the food)

    nice question, jolteonjak. I've got a couple other questions concerning the dub of the Porygon episode.

    1) What was Professor Akihabara's English name?

    2) Was Akihabara a character you voiced, by any chance?

    3) I asked this earlier, but which voiced did 4kids use for Porygon? The original voice, or that voice we heard in a later "Who's That Pokemon?"... or maybe something else entirely?

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    I translate for #Pocketmonsters (just because I know Japanese does not make me Japanese, stop PMing me).
