I like Pokemon more than you! :p
Some of the quality of the voice recording became iffy at points, you could hear the quality drop, I don't know why they didn't bother to fix it, unless it was just my TV's reception or something.
Ash is horrendous. But then, so was his old voice. TIE
May is ridiculous. Her old voice was too annoying, this one's too older-sounding. I'll probably get used to it though. WIN
Max sounded identical to Ash at points, it was hard to tell who was talking between the two of them. They need to work to differentiate. PENDING
Misty is better, and Oak is irrelevant when you think about it. Joy is fine, Jenny is fine, Brock is horrible, but I don't like him anyway.
Dr. Yung brought some actual quality to the voice extras, don't know if that's just because it's a special or if everyone will finally stop sounding like one of the main characters at a different pitch and unneeded accent now.
Music was amazing. Again, is it just because it's a special, or is it finally the end of bad synthesizing? I hope it's the latter. In terms of Pokémon, I was hoping they might abandon unneeded name repetition for some Pokémon that might be fine with just normal grrs and grunts, but if I base it on Aggron, that's out of the picture.
Team Rocket. Only thing I care for, really.
Jessie - better.
James - a hell of a lot worse.
Meowth - a hell of a lot worse. I knew nothing could beat or even come close to the Meowth we had, which even surpassed the Japanese Meowth.
Wobbuffet - Wobbuffet got back his old voice!!! Like, sometime late last year, his voice totally changed, and then sort of reverted to an impression, but I could still tell it wasn't right. Whoever voiced him apparently left 4Kids, and joined whoever's dubbing it now. Hooray
Only losses: whoever did Meowth, and Eric Stuart. Whoever is doing Ash and I really presume Max should try to differentiate their voices and also work to improve Ash's a bit, and a similar thing with May, who sounded too similar to Joy. Voices are good, but some need to be more unique because I did get confused as to who was talking at a few points due to similarity in voices.
And intro sucked what was that and what was the song and what even HAPPENED?
