If 4kids still ran anime as dubbing company there would be retained all beenfits anime had back than,but on other hand there would be kept some undesired flaws they tend to do as well.
On good side:
-Ash older voice actor would be kept with same being applied to other characters too.Which would be great because imo they made character sound natural,knowing how to connect with them.
-openings would be better.When 4kid did dubbing they seemed more catchy and lively compared to rather bland and uncreative new ones.
-dialogue between characters would be more realistic imo.
On negative side:
-4kids usual habit of censoring too many pointless things would unfortunately stay.
-Japanese music would become almost non existent taking away from originality.
-there would be lot of cut and edited out scenes being accompanied with change of dialogues.
All in all i had no problems with anime when 4kids did dubbing having that natural feel to it,though their flaws really hurt it in some segments.Than again no one is perfect.
Speaking of Misty new voice,it sound rather good in Mastermind special seeming more fitting for her than i can say for some other characters which sound terribly imo.
If 4kids still dubbed the anime it wouldn't matter, as Misty still no longer appeared in the series after AG134 and Mastermind. I imagine Veronica Taylor would be upset she lost her role as May, but she still has the main character.
Eric Stuart would still be James even with Brock gone, (like in Orange Islands), and Rachael Lilis would still have Jessie. Meowth would have still had a new voice due to Maddie sadly passing away though.

That has nothing to do with the voice actor. The people you should be upset with are the writers who made Ash say "y'know" a million times, not Ms. Natochenny.Originally Posted by NintendoGamer
I really didn't want to do this, but seriously, no one got over the voices? I really don't see things being better simply because of a different cast or voice director. I am not saying 4kids did not do a good job at that, except that they made odd scripting choices. I really don't see any difference other than that, and to me, that would make a saga that is already ridiculous even more ridiculous.

The waves of history swallow everything until we are all spat back out as flotsam, and then we are gone.

Sarah was only 18 when she did Ash's voice back in 2006 during Battle Frontier. They should have went with someone more experienced at the start.
Well they would continue to cram unfitting music into every last square inch of auditory space.
Cause y'know if kids are subject to a bit of silence, they might be momentarily distracted by a vacuum cleaner or something.
