I hope not. I don't have faith the English VA will be able to sing.
No. There's no reason for it.
They tend to keep the ones that have the same name between languages. Usually.
I think she'll most likely retain her original voice in the dub.

I think there's a good chance it won't, but it may still happen, anyway.

What exactly needs to be dubbed??? Theirs no words, and it's a pretty girly voice already. As above posters have said, all she says is her name, and they don't usually dub those.
Plus as someone above sing why make hard work for yourself in finding a voice for Meloetta who can also sing, when one has already been found and recorded for you?
TPCI has had a pretty shitty track record when it comes to keeping pokemon voices whose names are the same in both versions, so I'm not really holding my breath. Of course, logic and common sense would dictate that the voice *doesn't* get dubbed, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if the dubbers just up and changed it for no reason.
Well they kept Phione and Victini's voices, so I think Meloetta keeping its Japanese voice is fairly likely. At the moment, Pokemon that get dubbed voices when they don't really need them (e.g. Emboar, Gigalith) are ones the evolve from Pokemon that already had dub voices. Swanna seems to be the only exception there, but it debuted before Ducklett, anyway. Where it's a single Pokemon or the whole line keeps fairly Japanese-y names (Munna/Musharna, Emolga, Archen/Archeops) the voices tend to be kept.
I really, really hope not. Its voice is fine as it is (especially when it's singing) and I can only imagine how badly the dub would slaughter it if they attempted to recreate it...
Although they have dubbed the voice of singing pokemon before I hope not. It is fine as it is and as their names are the same it will kind of be a waste of time to dub it. But as you say its happened before so who knows?
Huge thanks to Blue Dragon for my EPIC avatar & sig
Most Legendary Pokemon keep to keep their Japanese voices as long as they don't talk, so I'm cautiously optimistic. At the very least, they HAVE to keep that lovely singing voice (go figure if anyone at TPCI could carry a tune if it had handles).
Guess we'll find out come, oh, late October or early November.
