Although this was a long time ago now, back in 2006 when the the PUSA dub started for the first time, there was a group on the forums called SOVA who thought they could petition to get the 4kids VA's back.
They were admirable in their efforts and at the beginning I supported them. Voice changes in any cartoon are usually for the negative, and at the beginning the PUSA VA's weren't used to their roles. Unfortunately given the group was disorganized and comprised mostly of teenagers,
A lot of people have wondered why I don't really rant about Iris or say much negative about the character, unlike fellow ranting fiends like Wolverine. Let's flashback:
Originally I liked Iris simply on the basis that she was not another coordinator. Not that I disliked Contests, I quite enjoyed them, its just that I didn't want three coordinator girls in a row. But once that worn off, there had to be some other hook about Iris.

As we know, TR are missing episodes in the series for the first time in history. Currently in Japan we're going on a 7 episode streak with NO Team Rocket.

I highly suspect the writers will bring Giovanni back eventually, as well as the Plasma storyline,
