Fun fact Tom Wayland said in a panel that Vincent donofrio almost voice Arceus could you imagine Kingpin as Arceus

I don't like how James sounds like a goofy guy shouting his lines all the time who has a cold or stuffy nose now in the dub: it's aggravating, and really stood out to me whenever the character appeared in this Movie. Even Ted Lewis' stiff, flatly delivered performance and AG Eric Stuart's shouting goofiness were better, and that's saying a lot, imo.

Everyone has said what I think of Arceus' voice in this, enough said.

Has Dan Green in cast.

Doesn't get him to voice God Pokemon.

Okay, I understand that most people who have seen this movie don't like Tom Wayland's voice for Arceus, so I have a suggestion that you all might like better: Maybe if Tony Jay was still alive by the time the English dub was being made, maybe he could've voiced Arceus!: http://youtu.be/Aa6NQfmTYM8

Who agrees with me?

@Jacob M. Keene Honestly, I think it would've been much too distracting. Jay has a very commanding voice, but I believe it sounds too deep that it wouldn't sound right on a design like Arceus. A voice more along the lines of Kevin Conroy's might suit him better.

@DreamMaster08X Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Okay so, do you think Tony Jay's voice would've fit for any character in the anime?

I think he'd make a pretty good Professor Oak with his warm and dulcet timbre, but I don't think the dub would have a high enough budget under any company for his talents, personally.

@WrightWay True, and my comment was leaning more towards imagining if it did.

Oh and this is the first time I heard the current dub, Ash doesn't sound that bad to me and I actually like Meowth's voice but Brock, Jessie and James sounds pretty weird

Arceus sounded SO ridiculous. It was terrible.

@Nightmare Crusher Yeah, I heard some clips on YouTube and it was painful to listen to.

The English voices for Legendary Pokemon used to be some of the best performances in these movies but it seems like they have REALLY gone downhill as of late.

@Metabad Ah yes. I loved Phillip Bartlett's Mewtwo, Dan Green's Entei and Sean Schemmel's Lucario if that counts. Now we have JUSTICE! But hey, at least it wasn't the bizarre casting decision for the Japanese version.

@Nightmare Crusher @Metabad I actually liked Tom Wayland's Arceus voice, I don't mind if you two don't though.
