    I agree. Muk and Glalie are really underused.

    It's weird to think that this is TPCI's first Pokemon League, ever.

    Does anyone know who did the voice of the league announcer back in the 4Kids days? And has he ever done any voices for the TPCI dub?

    Most of the voice actors interchange, since both are stationed in NYC. Tom Wayland, the director of Pokemon, does a few voices for 4kids. I am sure whoever the actor is, he does work for TCPi and 4kids.

    Which is kind of what I was getting at. If the guy who did the voice back in the 4Kids days does work for TPCI, then why wouldn't he have been asked to do the voice for the league announcer here? Y'know, for consistency's sake?

    Perhaps he was already doing something else. Or maybe they found whoever they used better. It isn't like he is assured his old role. You gotta do the whole audition process.

    I trust Tom Wayland as the director to have made the right choice.

    (Tom Wayland voices one of my favorite characters, so I trust him quite well)

    Besides, this isn't the same announcer from Hoenne or Johto is it?

    As far as I'm aware, the league announcer has been the same in every league up until Sinnoh. I know for a fact that that's the case with the Japanese version, but I'm pretty sure the same is true for the dub as well.

    So this one guy travels around the world to announce for the local league challenges? Seems like a very demanding job.

    I'm fairly sure that Ted Lewis (Tracey's VA) provided the voice for all of the League announcers during 4Kids' tenure. He also voiced the announcer on the Pokemon Stadium games.

    Ted Lewis voiced James during the first few episodes, and voices Giovanni. I don't think he ever voiced Tracey.

    EDIT: Even so, a better example would be Giovanni.

    No, he did voice Tracey. He might have been credited as Ed Paul for that role since that's one of the names he uses, but Ted Lewis did voice Tracey.

    Anyway, I thought that the battle was pretty decent. It could have been better, but I thought it was a nice start to the league. While it would have been nice to see Quilava's full battle, it was able to knock out a Pokemon it had a disadvantage against. So, at least they proved that Quilava is a strong Pokemon.

    It was an interesting match and Conway and Barry are both awesome (It'll be a shame to see them go), but it kinda felt like I was watching someone's PBR match.

    And Ash's battling style sucks if all he's going to do is believe in his pokemon. And apparently he thought that because there was a lot more strategy from his side than belief.

    I'm pretty sure him believing in his Pokemon, has nothing to do with him crossing his fingers and ordering an attack, hoping that the opponent is knocked out from that attack, like it seems you're suggesting.

    Ash earlier was just trying to figure out which Pokemon were best suited to battling Nando, and was doubting he could find the best team for the job. Him believing in his Pokemon had more to do with the fact that as long as he chose the appropriate choices and strategies/tactics he would win, no matter what.

    Not that Paul is really the best example, but him choosing the best three for the job, is almost very similar to Ash believing in his Pokemon. Paul believes his three choices were the best because he believes his Pokemon can handle the job. Likewise with Ash only in a more caring about his Pokemon way.

    Not really. The regions for the first four generations are based on regions in Japan, which itself is only about as big as the state of California. Assuming he didn't walk from region to region, the announcer could conceivably make the trip in just a few hours.

    The league announcer now was Mike Pollock, me thinks. If I'm not mistaken, he also announced for PBR. Even though Ted Lewis has returned to the series. It was probably a case of availability.

    What I found weirder was that Jamie McGonnigal wasn't listed in the credits, even though Barry was there.
