I never liked the voice changes idea or the changes, and I never really will. However, I do think the current voice actors are good now and much improved, though. I'm used to them by now.

S10-11 and some of 12 bothered me the most in the dub...voices give me a headache there. Late Season 12 is when Sarah and the others really began to settle in with their own voices and the acting fit much better, too. Season 13 improved on that, and 14-current they are all good for the most part.

I feel like all sets of voice actors have generally put a lot of passion into the show (TPCi's voice cast, as of BW, anyway-- the only ones that felt like they were truly passionate about their roles in DP were Bill Rogers as Brock, Michele Knotz as Jessie, and Jimmy Zoppi as James and Meowth). It's just that I feel since the characters haven't aged yet, all of the 4Kids voices were generally much more appropriate for the characters. That's just my take on it.

"If Pikachu becomes a Raichu, I might be able to win that badge. On the other hand, to make it evolve just to fight...I would be just like Surge...Pikachu, what do you want to do? I really wanna beat that Surge, but I also don't want to force you to evolve if you'd be happier staying the way you are now." -- OS Ash, ESS
