View Full Version : Is pokemon still good after Cartoon Network starts to do it?

I'm going to hate the new voices, but I'm on season 8 and I know, that 4kids stops doing it, after the hoenn, so in your opinion is it still good?

I shouldn't have made my text like that. :X

It's not cartoon network, it's The Pokemon Company. And yes, it starts during the battle frontier.

Don't worry though, they get better.

In the beginning I hated the voices but I got used to it. However, the story is not as good as it once was.

I thought they were ok from the start but I def think they have gotten better.

I thought the TV show was ok the first several seasons, but then they got to Sinnoh and it just went downhill. The movies are still worth watching though. Ash's voice is annoying...they need to get a dude to do it -.-

I don't care. I'm watching Japanese episodes, so... Anyway, I have completely another version of CN, where are no Pokemon series.

It's still good.. the voices are horrible at first, but they get better over time.

It's a combination of getting used to them, and the voice actors just getting better at them.

Case in point, I wouldn't stop watching just because they're voices changed if you really wanna see what happens. I mean it's not like the plots / episodes will change.

I lost faith in the cartoon at the start of sinnoh but Ive come back and watched a few of them.

Voice actors were horrible (mainly because I was used to the old voices for so long), but the episodes weren't that bad in Battle Frontier. But the episodes at beginning of Sinnoh got so bad that it made me stop watching all subsequent seasons of pokemon with exception of a few episodes here and there.

The episodes right after the switch were awful, but they vastly improved, and quickly too. I like both voice sets.

I don't think DP made Pokemon worse, most of you probably just grew up and lost interest. That's what happened with me, anyways. However, I'll pop in for the occasional episode if it's on.

I actually prefer the newer voices now, and BF is my favorite arc in the anime. =)

Cartoon Network is the Television station they are not the ones that produce the show they just broadcast it, so if you want to blame anyone blame the companies that hire the voice actors. If the voice acting is so bad then just try the volume off and watch in with sub titles. I watch the episodes for the content within the shows not how the voice actors sound when they are saying their dialog.

because it is not used to be much more original with Gyms
now also becomes a little monotonous...

CN has nothing to do with it, and I got used to the voices :x
