Yeah, I think I agree with my earlier opinion here, I'd rank Elesa's English VAs this way:

1. Sarah Natochenny (A little inconsistent, but showed great promise in the role)
2. Eileen Stevens (Decent, but too high pitched)
3. Mela Lee (...A little too old and sultry sounding...)

Alright, so my opinion on her three English voices...

Anime: It was Eileen Stevens, and it got a bit too high pitched at times for comfort.

BW2: It was Sarah Natochenny, and she actually sounded pretty fittingly smug and confident here...that is, until the end where she slipped right into her BW Ash voice and said "Let's see whose star shines BRIGHTEST" and that took me right out of it.

Generations: Apparently, it was Mela Lee here...is it just me, or did anyone else feel the voice was a bit too seductive sounding? I get what she was going for, and based off her appearance I would come to a similar conclusion myself, but I was kind of hoping for something a bit more...toned down and intelligent sounding myself?

@WrightWay Natochenny is still the best Elesa for me. She actually IS a model as well, so she sounds the most natural even if I can hear some of her Ash when she emotes.

Mela Lee was okay but that's just odd casting for the role in general.

@Galactic_Cyrus You did mention before that Lila's voice would have worked for Elesa. And personally, i feel tat would have been great.

@Fulgore2005 Lila's voice?

I believe they mean that contest rival of Johanna's in the Anime during Sinnoh who Dawn faced off against as well, though we really don't know who voiced her in the dub regardless.

I can't say I like Natochenny's voice acting for the most part, although I do actually agree she probably had the most fitting voice for Elesa out of the three dub VAs she had, though it's not perfect either in my book.

@WrightWay Oh yeah, that's what I thought.

Natochenny's not the best voice actress, but I find her alright in all of her roles that are NOT Ash.

I honestly don't like her Delia (especially the one that's turned up in the BW and SM dub Arcs) or Johanna much, either, but I can agree she's OK in most of her other roles.
