He was better off voicing characters like Tucker, he sounded better as him than as his other characters as far as Pokemon goes to me.

His Sudowoodo, Combusken, Corphish and Chimchar voices are my favorite.
Some say he was not Combusken in the Mirage special but who else could have been Combusken.
I do know it wasn't stock footage from 4Kids.

His best work is the various Pokemon he voices, he does well there. Shocking miscast as Ghetsis but he's still a decent VA :-)

@Torak Huh, didn't know he was Ghetsis.

Scratch that, I didn't even know Ghetsis had an anime portrayal in the first place.

@Metabad
Bill sounds a lot like Carter Cathcart as Ghetsis, but his delivery and 's' pronounciations are pretty recognisable.
Let's just say I'm glad his character isn't here. :3

@Torak Any particular role of Cathcart's?

On a sidenote, I see that your avatar is Ghetsis, so you must be a pretty big fan of him, which leads me to my second question...out of curiosity, is there any particular VA you had in mind for him?

@Metabad Bill uses a rather slimy, croaky and manipulative voice for Ghetsis that sounds a lot like the kind of voice Cathcart does. The
voice Bill used (or was told to) use was too light, forced and croaky for me. I still like Bill as an actor, but I was of course disappointed with what we got. I imagined a more intelligent, smoother and deeper voice for the character. Something like J Michael Tatum or Travis Willingham.
As for my avatar: I just loved the artwork really :-P He's a decent villain (and a final boss too) in the game that is.

@Torak Ahh yeah, I've never heard it myself but going by the way you describe it, that doesn't sound like it would fit at all.

J. Michael Tatum and Travis Willingham sound like much better choices for the role.

I don't know much about the character, but how about David Kaye as Ghetsis?

@Metabad Yeeeeess, his booming deep voice would work too. xD

@Torak Another idea I had a while back, how about Jack Merluzzi as Ghetsis? Using something along the lines of his Master Albert voice.

I'll link you to a video in case you're unfamiliar with it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDrtQO0SgiQ#t=0m23s
