Pokemon Chronicles is a mixed bag at best in terms of its English dubbing. It's fairly clear it's not the main Series team from 4Kids' Pokemon dub who worked on the dubbing here, and it really shows- some have said it was the One Piece team- I wouldn't go THAT far at all, but it's clearly a step down: Legend of Thunder's dub in particular is a complete mess from start to finish, although if I have to give it any credit at all, it still kept 3 Japanese BGM pieces intact (which is still better than I can say for any of 4Kids' other dubs, outside of Dinosaur King, the short-lived Uncut DVDs of Yu-Gi-Oh DM/Shaman King, & the main Pokemon Anime/Movies). Additionally, there was a creepy line about Professor Oak loving Delia or whatever...Ted Lewis' script adaptation was not very good, to put it lightly.

Having said all of this, there are a *few* bright spots in the dubbing, notably the fact 4Kids actually left silent moments in at points- as we all know, wall-to-wall music is their and many other kids' dubbers specialty, so to hear even a few seconds of that from them was a pleasant surprise. I also think Andi Whaley made for a better Cassidy than Megan Hollingshead did, and Andy Rannells' Forrest performance was surprisingly pretty solid. Eric Stuart's Butch was also getting less raspy here, which was nice. Additionally, 4Kids' take on Team Rocket was still fine, "We're No Angels" being one of the few episodes to escape Chronicles-level treatment, and be dubbed as well as the main Series was. "Celebi and Joy" was another good one where the script was actually accurate, involving Ritchie.

And I'll say this much- at least 4Kids bothered to actually dub most of the Sunday Specials into English, something TPCi didn't even do for 90% of them since they took over (both of Brock's DP & BW Specials never saw the light of day in English, in particular). A lackluster dub with some degree of effort put into it shows more dedication to me than not doing any dub at all & skipping over episodes entirely, personally.

I think it was cool there was a series for the older cast at the time this was made but I did not like the dub here at all... just like in Hoenn, Marina and Jim were just so high pitched and overbearing to listen to and everyone knows what I thought of Mike Pollock's narration, the best I could say is we see more of Brock's family

To me, it sucks that Rodger Parsons wasn't this series' narrator.
