Rachael did a great job as Misty and Jessie on Pokemon, managing to bring out the boisterous sides of the characters, while also not exaggerating them.

@Dr.Who I still have to wonder how she had the vocal range to voice someone like Jigglypuff.

@Skeeter Mania
Same: can't believe how talented she was.

@Dr.Who Or Eric Stuart with Lickitung.

@Skeeter Mania
Yeah, I'd never have thought he did that. A friend told me he voiced Jolteon as well, but he didn't voice Weezing.

said at 4:36 PM on Wed Mar 23 2016
@Dr.Who I think it was Kayzie who voiced Jolteon. Eric probably voiced it in episodes like Get Along, Little Pokémon and Trouble's Brewing.

@Skeeter Mania
Now that makes more sense to me.
Skeeter Mania
said at 4:39 PM on Wed Mar 23 2016
@Dr.Who Of course considering all of that, Kayzie has voiced every single Eeveelution up to Umbreon (Vaporeon was voiced by Rachael Lillis in the 4Kids dub except for the first movie, Jolteon was occasionally voiced by Eric Stuart, and Espeon usually kept its Japanese voice, as did Eevee).
said at 4:40 PM on Wed Mar 23 2016
@Skeeter Mania
That is true. We should probably talk about this privately since this is Rachael Lillis' page and all.

Happy Birhtday Rachael Lillis!! You were awesome as the voice of Jessie and Misty, those roles were easily my favorite memories in the 4Kids dub of Pokemon.

Here's to hope she gets to do more Anime voice over work in the future.

Happy Birthday Rachael Lillis!

Another of my many favourite 4Kids VA's while growing up. I'm still amazed she was both Misty and Jessie, seriously the VA's in 4Kids dub of Pokemon had such a tremendous range and this is no exception. It was kind of cool that she was able to come back and voice for the TCPI dub as Maylene, sadly I wish they could have let her voice Jessie again.....oh well.

I also really loved her work in Berserk and in The Slayers series. It's a shame she didn't reprise for the 2nd and 3rd Berserk movies since moving to LA which is just strange since the NYAV Post has a studio in LA? I hope she'll pop back up in anime dubs sometime in the near future, she's got a great voice that shouldn't go to waste.

I'm wondering why she didn't voice any characters on One Piece or Yugioh. They were big franchises in the New York area and 4kids.

I'm sorry but I gotta ask why no love for Utena Tenjou only Jessie and misty from Pokemon I know the whole changing of the voice but who else here thinks that is one of her best non Pokemon roles
said at 5:45 PM on Sat Feb 8 2014
Aha! So Pokemon's Jessie is Dinosaur King's Ursula! I'm surprised I actually guessed right, there. It's odd that she's also Jigglypuff, though.
I don't think I could have guessed that one.

Is there anyway to contact her? she has no website and no facebook

She's on twitter

I was always very fond of her Misty and Jessie. My favorite of her roles is actually Jessie: she brought so many different dimensions to the character and over time was just became perfect as the character.
said at 5:26 AM on Sat Oct 5 2013
Well, over time she became perfect as the character is what I meant to say. Rachael gave Jessie so many different facets to her personality. It's amazing how great she is as an actor, in terms of doing all aspects of her characters brilliantly.

Happy birthday, Rachael.

Enjoyed her roles such as Pokemon's Jessie and Misty, and Genshinken's Kanako.

Her Princess Charlotte from Berserk is my definite favourite. Hope she returns in the third movie to make up for her absence in the second.
said at 9:59 PM on Sun Oct 6 2013
@Fulgore2005 Come to think of it, what happened? She returned for the first film, but not the second? Definitely hope for her to return in #3.
said at 1:58 AM on Mon Oct 7 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 I wish I knew. My guess is that she was likely unavailable for the recording of the second film, so the director (Michael Sinterniklaas) bought in GK Bowes for the role.
said at 12:13 PM on Mon Oct 7 2013
@Fulgore2005 According to her Twitter, she's still auditioning and booking gigs. I'm not sure when the recording period was for #2, but if it was a conflict, I think it would've been because of a trip she took recently or something. The recording would have to have been really rushed. I hope she didn't decline or was fired for whatever reason. She appears to have vanished from anime voice acting, even with the already small number of stuff done in NY.

Amazing!, I would've never guessed Rachael did Faragonda. I didn't find out until about a month ago. She is so awesome that she can create an older lady's voice! I had no idea and I grew up with the original 4kidz Winx and still listen to it today! She is super talented :).
said at 9:27 PM on Tue Dec 18 2012
@dreamer She voiced an older lady in The Slayers when she was only 20! XD She was quite convincing too (granted, the role wasn't supposed to be taken too seriously, but still...).

I hope she voices Jessie and Misty again
Knotz was too high-pitched and sounded too sweet
said at 12:24 PM on Mon Jul 2 2012
@MatthewC17 Misty hasn't appeared in Pokemon since the anniversary special, and it's the only time Knotz has ever voiced the character. It's certainly possible for Lillis to return, since she's still a member of the overall cast (even though she's not quite as active as she once was). We'll have to wait and see. ;)
said at 9:57 PM on Tue Jan 1 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 Misty appeared in a few Hoenn episodes after that and Knotz voiced her there as well.
said at 12:17 AM on Wed Jan 2 2013
@pete All of Misty's appearances in the Advanced Generation series were before the cast changes. She has not appeared in Diamond and Pearl or Black and White at all.
said at 2:44 PM on Wed Jan 2 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 I do remember it airing on WB but why is Knotz credited as voicing her in the anime on Misty' character page?
said at 10:06 PM on Wed Jan 2 2013
@pete She received credit early on when we considered the 10th anniversary special to be a part of the actual series, and it's also where her sound clip in the VC is sourced. Obviously it would have to be transferred in the future, and her credit removed.

With the exception of the 10th Anniversary special, no episode with the new cast was aired on KidsWB.
said at 7:46 PM on Wed Aug 14 2013
A bit late to respond, but Michele is still voicing both Misty and Jessie. I haven't seen any new episodes of Pokémon to verify that myself, but I've heard that Rachael now lives in LA, so it'd be difficult to bring her back.
said at 9:17 PM on Sun Oct 13 2013
@pokemastanumba1 I am aware that Michele is still Jessie. There's no doubt about that. However, I don't think Misty has appeared or spoken, even in a flashback, since the 10th anniversary Special.

Also, where did you hear Rachael now lives in LA? While she did tweet once that she wishes she lived there, I'm pretty sure she still actually resides in NY. She has appeared in NYAV Post dubs which mixes NY and LA talent, but I'm pretty sure she's still on the NY side of things.
said at 6:25 PM on Mon Oct 14 2013
@PurpleWarrior13 I've only heard about the alleged move to LA from someone else's post in the SOVA Facebook group page. I don't know if that's 100% true, but it is worth noting that she hasn't had a new role in a NY-based dub for while now.
said at 7:52 PM on Mon Oct 14 2013
@pokemastanumba1 Her Twitter mentions BOTH locations, so there might be something there. Either way, she could've come back to voice Princess Charlotte in either location since Berserk is a bicoastal dub.

Search "Ash Remembers Charizard." You also get to hear a new voice for Damian and Koga.

>Let Zagnit voice Koga again

I don't even know what to say to this...
