This comment will probably be deleted but... this had some of the most awful acting in any Pokemon Media I've ever heard in the English dub
(excluding Brock, Misty and Rodger Parsons.)

Sorry, I just needed to get that off my chest. No offense meant to all the actors.

@Torak Don't worry too much about it. A lot of people disliked the dub of this special.

I will admit that the re-dubbed version is a bit better, but regardless it was pretty horribly dubbed either way.

@Torak Aside from Misty, Brock (in the redub), and the Narrator, I thought Jimmy Zoppi performed better as Oak in this special than he did for the rest of the series, and Dr Yung/Mirage Master's voice performance was AWESOME. Everyone else...yeah, they sucked.

Exactly right. What's sad is that this special's plot was great itself, but the debut of the TPCi dub here really made me detest it when it first aired. It's an okay special, but it was a bit over the top, writing wise. It was cool to hear the AG JPN BGM in the dub (didn't happen much after that), and I liked Misty, Brock (Bill's 2nd take in the redub), and the Narrator's voices. Prof Oak was decent, and Dr. Yung hands-down was the best voice in the dub. The rest, though, were very poor.

@OldSchoolFTW Exactly. Y'know for a long while, I imagined Bill Timoney's Yung voice for Colress. Now I can't choose between that and Eli James' take for the character.

I think both would fit Colress, but Eli James' take was excellent for my tastes.

You know, what's funny is that I find this special of the exact same quality as the dub episodes of Battle Frontier-Black and White. It's honestly the exact same quality as the episodes TPCi has done. Thus, if you can watch a TPCi dubbed episode, then this special is very easy to bare. However, we all watched the 4Kids Dub of Season 8 prior to this special, and that's what it was so jarring. But, rewatching it, it's the exact same quality as the actual TPCi dub episodes (actually a little better for some like Brock).

*why it was so jarring.

@JSD It was always going to be jarring. This thing has happened before with other franchises: New cast comes in to replace older cast, fan reactions range from cautious optimism to fan-rage, cast gets used to their roles, fans soon warm up to them. It's happened many times before, and will continue to happen.

The Mirage Pokemon story was no doubt interesting, but I seriously think this needs a redub.

It's been redubbed with Sarah Natochenny as Ash in place of Kayzie Rogers: and much like the actual episodes of the TPCi dub, it's still just as bad as this special is with respect to voice acting quality. XD.
