I personally don't like the voice of Jynx and Gothitelle in the anime.
The anime has ruined their voices and both of them sound like witches.
Jynx sounded like a scary witch and Gothitelle sounded like a wicked witch.

I also don't like the male Snivy's voice. The fact that they divide female voices and male voices is just wrong...animals shouldn't have this division.

I actually disagree with most anime voices in Best Wishes, they sound too human. Hahakomori sounds more like a mother than a bug... o.0

So, what's your opinion?

I hate Oshawott's dub voice, it's terrible and sounds too feminine in my opinion, it's japanese voice was great and really captured how funny it is...

I probably think Hahakomori was actually supposed to sound a little motherly or something, it did seem to be a female, and it did make the leaf for Kurumiru.

I'm not going to drag on about how TPCi changed the dub voice actors to be honest, I find it very annoying how people still do it...

I don't like Tepig voice in English Dub. I know it's suppose to sound like a pig since it's a pig type Pokemon but it just annoying. I like it's Jap voice a lot better then the English. I don't like Meowth Jap voice at all. I can barely hear his voice clearly. I know I don't understand Japanese but the voice is a bit clear to hear but when it comes to Meowth; I just feel like closing my ears with earplugs.

It's true Meowth's Japanese voice is annoying. He sounds like a grandpa who smoked too much cigarette! I like the Japanese dub so far, but I've seen none of the English episodes since I don't live in the US (BW that is).

I always liked Jynx's voice in the first season! It sounds like a happy fat woman to me xD.

I also don't like Tepig's dun voice. I just couldn't stand how it sounds. I also didn't like Ash's Torkoal's dub voice in the Sinnoh League. What was wrong with its old man voice?

I can't hear a word with Meowth's Japanese voice.
LOL a grandpa who smoked too much LOL

haha...happy fat woman...the voice is too low for me though, especially when compared with the soprano voice she has in the games.

I don't like Pansage's English voice. Cilan's voice bothers me. And Cress's does too. :(

Oshawott - What are you ON about?! 0_o Ash's Oshawott's Wotter's voice is like one of the best voices to grace the English dub along with Pikachu's and Blaziken's!

I really hate Professor Oak's new voice, though. His classic Original Series voice was very distinctive, implying Pokemon Professor knowledge but without too much nerdiness and without too much seriousness. The current voice actor is just trying to imitate him way too hard and sadly failing. T_T And Sarah Natochenny is OK for Ash's voice, but I still miss Veronica Taylor's distinctive voice...

Sandile's voice sounds a bit too screechy for me; I thought it would either be reminiscent of Sandslash's dub voice, or it would have been in a deeper tone.

I love Tepig's dub voice; at times it sounds appropriately swine, and at other times it strangely sounds like a wonderful bell tone.

The gender of the Snivy that Trip received - I can tolerate its voice, but I feel that it could have been better. It wasn't "Smugleaf"-sounding enough...maybe this opposite-gendered Snivy in a later episode will be a bit better sounding...

Still disagree with Oshawott's dub voice, but I agree about Axew's Kibago's dub voice. Way too cutesy for a baby Dragon Pokemon that, in my perspective, should have a "Larvitar-ish" sounding voice.

What do you mean, racist? lol

I've finally watched a bit of the English version, and my ears exploded when I heard Tepig's voice. Its pig squeaks are so awful.

I am really hating Ash's new dub voice. I didn't really mind it in Diamond and Pearl however within the context of the new approach to B&W it's flaws have been exposed.

The problem is that it has no comedic tones - it's too one dimenional; there have been a couple of times in the B&W where Ash has acted like a noob. In the first series, Veronica Taylor was able to perfect the delivery and help enhance the noobishness of Ash so much so that it geniunely could get a chuckle from you. However Nanotechonlgy (or whatever her name is) is not able to get the same delivery and so it isn't funny at all; where Ash is talk like a noob, he doesn't.

I really dislike Ash, Brocks, and Professor Oaks current dub voices. Especially Ashs. Episodes where he doesnt talk very much are usually the best.

Really? He has Barry's voice actor, who I loved. It's like I can hear the enthusiasm dripping out his voice, but he's not allowed to show it because of who he's currently playing...@~@ Perhaps he doesn't suit calm characters.

Everyone who hates Osha's adorable voice is officially deaf. I have now decided for you. Not in every case I would say this, most definitely, but I believe Oshawott's and Mijumaru's voices are just as cute as each other. Not often this happens with dub voices.

I think that Trip and Barry's voices are annoying. But I prefer the Pokemon Company International voices better than 4Kids. James sounds funnier in newer episodes.

Personally, as of right now, I dislike Bianca's and Lyra's.

Not really that they sounded annoying, but more or less- I disliked their voices simply because they didn't really match the voices I had in my head when I played the games.

Understandable. The only voices I dislike right now are Iris', Meowth's, and Professor Oak's voices. Though personally, I don't prefer a single voice actor from TPCi's dub to their 4Kids dub equivalent, and I've somehow come to terms with that. xD.

I've only watched a few subbed episodes, but man, I just can't deal with the Japanese voices. I know they're the original voices etc, but yeah.

As for English voices, Meowth grinds after a while, Gary's voice always irritated me, but was that intentional? To make him annoying? Piplup ARGH!!! Probably the worst one imo, can't stand Piplup. Barry's voice was quite irritating as well.

Trip's voice annoys me too, but only because it sounds too similar to Paul's voice to me.

Really, quite a lot of them irritate me, but I just get used to them the more those characters appear. Apart from Piplup. I never got used to Piplup.

The voices that annoy me most are Tepig, Sandile, Meowth, and Cilan. At least the first two have evolved and are sounding better, but Meowth's new voice since AG sounds like he's grown up, even though he doesn't look grown up to me. Don't know for a reason why I don't like Cilan, but I just don't prefer his voice compared to some of the others.
