Pokémon USA provides VA update at Comic Con
Pokémon USA have revealed some new information at Comic-Con today and the initial reports are sounding promising for those who disliked the voice acting in Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon.
The biggest surprise was regarding that. It has now been redubbed and will be a special feature on the Lucario and the Mystery of Mew DVD. A sample was played where Ash, Brock and May reportedly sound a lot closer to their original voices.
All of the VAs remain the same, with the previously known exception of Ash Ketchum, who is now known to be voiced by Sarah Natochenny. Bill Rodgers, the new voice of Brock, was also at the conference and has revealed that he is taking a very different approach to the voice for season nine.
Pokémon USA also revealed at the panel some of thier future plans for the anime series. The panel confirmed that a special based on the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games will air on Cartoon Network at an undetermined date, with a DVD release later. The panel also announced that 5 episodes of the new Battle Frontier season have already been dubbed, with each episode done within a week. The dubbers will work to keep most of the Japanese music as well. Movie 9 is also set to be released sometime next year.
A sound file of the entire conference is planned to be uploaded to the internet later so more information may arise at that time.
