I can't see it happening. Voice acting in most games, especially for handheld games, doesn't work out too well. Plus with game like Pokemon, (and Legend of Zelda) that's has had silent characters for the entire series , it would for feel too weird. The protagonist is supposed to be you and you're the one experiencing being a trainer so you should be the one to give voices to NPCs/ characters and such. Also it would be too difficult and too expensive to hire voice actors for all the languages the games are gonna be released for and there's not enough time. As for Pokemon having voices, I much prefer cries. Some of the voices given to Pokemon in the anime dub are awful and don't really fit the Pokemon themselves.
