    I never even notice the guy to be frank, the only time I did was in the D/P series when Ash sneased due to some one talking about him the guy made a joke and cracked me up, narrators can have a sense of humor?
    A close family member of mine died today, I put this in my sign as respect for him

    Honestly he's getting really forgettable these days, actually. I thought it was just me who's beginning to find him dull sometimes. Honestly I'm beginning to like Ash and TRio's TPCi voices more than the original narrators' right now. Am I nuts, or are they just that much better now than they were in the previous sagas?

    Remember last episode, though? "Neither trainer will budge an inch!" Right Rodger, right....keep telling yourself that, man.

    It's funny because the guy used to be really memorable and I hated when Pollock took over initially, but nowadays the narrator isn't that memorable for me.

    That's what it sounds like to me. Unless I'm wrong of course but it does sound like it.

    It's pretty obvious why he got back the role in that case. The difference this time was when TPCI left taj he stayed.

    I wasn't a fan of the 2nd narrator to tell the truth throughout his entire run. He was okay but I always felt the first narrator set the mood better.
    I agree on all accounts with you myself. He was more of a TAJ Productions VA than a 4Kids VA. I prefer him to Pollock, for sure (he was rather generic, tbh, just not as jarring as the main chars voices being changed for me--that was just a "Wow, I'm gonna go cry now" moment for me), but the narrator is now the forgettable voice on the show for me right now. Really, though, I'm beginning to grow quite fond of the TPCi dub voices for Ash and TRio since BW began, actually. That may be why I'm now like, "Oh, the narrator? Yeah, he's cool."

    Don't care much about him to be honest, he was okay when I was a little kid.

    No, because he's irrelevant imo. All he does is mention stuff we already know at the beginning of the episode and then he gives us a small summary of what Ash and friends did at the end; basically stuff that anyone who watches the anime would already know.

    I like both narrators they've used, but it's too bad he rarely gets to do more than just tell us what's going on and summing things up. It's rare that he does anything else. At least they changed it up in that one Orange Islands episode when he whined about seeing the same opening scene all the time, and narrators never getting to have any fun. LOL

    ROFL. Completely agreed. It's always "Our heroes!" all the time with both of them. Yeesh. They should let him have more fun sometimes. XD.

    "The city of Townsville...what's this...oh no! girls! (etc.)!" Oh yeah, he definitely got his fair share of limelight! The Pokemon narrator needs more!
