Voice Compare » Pokemon » Brock

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Brock with sound clips and images.
Brock is a Pokemon breeder and former Gym Leader of Pewter City. He is a close friend of Ash Ketchum and has been a traveling companion for the majority of the anime series. He often falls in love with every pretty woman or girl he meets such as Officer Jenny or Nurse Joy. Brock has a great knowledge of all Pokemon and is also a great cook. His goal is to be the best Pokemon Breeder he can possibly be and also find a girlfriend.

In the English dub version of the Pokemon anime by 4Kids Entertainment Brock was originally voiced by Eric Stuart. Eric Stuart would voice Brock for 8 seasons and all Pokemon films during that time until the voice actor replacement.

In 2006 4Kids lost the license for the Pokemon anime and Pokemon USA took control of producing and dubbing the series. After successfully auditioning for the 10th anniversary special Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon, Brock has since been voiced by Bill Rogers.

In the Pokemon Origins TV Special Brock was voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch.

Holy crap, I have to update my comment:
Eric Stuart just cannot be beat. Bill Rogers is a good voice actor, but not a good Brock, unfortunately. It's just too deep for my liking, and he doesn't get any different when he changes emotions.
Johnny... I don't know how to judge him; I'm so used to somewhat goofy voices playing Brock, but he's pretty good, I guess.

The best of the group has to be Eric Stuart: I always liked his Brock, and he's the only one here that gave Brock a very distinct, unique voice that stands out from other characters in the anime or in The Origin, for that matter. I really see nothing wrong with him here: he was pretty much perfect as the character throughout his run, sans some yells where Kaiba slipped in during the Hoenn Saga, but that's not a big deal in the larger scope of things. He is hands down my favorite.

Johnny Yong Bosch is my pick for second best. He did a very good job expressing Brock's warmer side like Eric Stuart before him in the actual anime, only in The Origin's English dub. I guess the reason I feel he is inferior to Eric Stuart's performance as the character is that his voice just sounds like he's using his Ichigo Kurosaki voice for Bleach, but merely toning it down a bit. It's not that distinct or unique on his part, and it doesn't have that Stuart charm to it. He is still a pretty good Brock, though: he is age appropriate and does a solid job.

Bill Rogers is my least favorite. I've never really liked him in this role...don't get me wrong, I'm sure he is a talented guy, but to me he's just too forced, gravelly, and too rough as Brock. In Battle Frontier, he did an okay impression of Eric Stuart's Brock, but was very phlegmatic and rather emotionless at times, making it boring. In Sinnoh, he was completely off and made Brock sound quite a lot older than he should have, and was generally completely miscast in the role. In the Unova Saga flashback ep, he was in between those two performances of his in the anime dub. He earns a rather distant third place in my eyes.

How come there's a different voice actor for Brock in Pokémon the Origins? Wouldn't it've been smarter to have Eric Stuart reprise the role? At least they made the right call not having Bill Rogers do it again.

Bosch sounds a lot closer to Eric Stuart than Bill Rogers does. Particularly if you go back and watch Brock's first appearance in the anime where he was the Gym Leader. Eric Stuart's tone was very JYB-esque there.

Bosch's voice sounds pretty generic, and very typical JYB, but it gets the job done, and he captures that Brock's spirit very well. Eric Stuart's voice is too memorable and classic to pass up, and Bill Rogers sounded a bit too forced for my tastes, and pretty generic.

Eric Stuart, easily. He has a very unique voice that fits the character like a glove, and I can see why it might be hard for Rogers to replicate that. It also doesn't help that the directing on the newer Pokemon episodes is less than stellar, so I can see why it would be hard for Rogers.

This is tough. Eric Stuart was a perfect Brock in Kanto and Johto, but sounded too "Kaiba-esque" by Hoenn. Bill Rogers was a great replacement during Battle Frontier but then sounded awful in Sinnoh: too deep and growly.

Overall, though, Eric Stuart did it better. Even his worst wasn't as bad as the voice Bill Rogers was using for most of his run.
OldSchoolFTW

@Galactic_Cyrus
I actually liked Eric Stuart's voice for Brock in Hoenn. I mean, I can definitely see where you're coming from, because when he shouted in emotional or tense scenes, I heard his Kaiba voice, but most of the time he really sounded the same as he did in Kanto-Johto to me.

Bill Rogers was great as Brock when he started off in Battle Frontier. I don't know what's happened to his Brock over the years, but his voice doesn't really fit the character now. Since Sinnoh, he's been giving Brock a really gruff and deep voice, and it's really grating on the ears.

To be fair, Bill's performance as Brock in BW116 was an improvement over the Sinnoh one, but his yelling is still really deep and growly, and he was very off and on in general.

Basically what I'm saying is that Eric Stuart's Hoenn voice was still better than Bill Rogers' Sinnoh and BW116 voice(s), even though Bill Rogers' performance as Brock in Battle Frontier was a bit better than Eric in Hoenn, IMO.
Galactic_Cyrus

Easily Eric Stuart for me. Bill Rogers is one of my least favorite among all replacements. His voice is far too gruff and deep for Brock, and he doesn't sound like a 15 year old teenager either. He has improved a bit in BW from what I saw of the flashback scene, but he still fails to yell or express himself in an appropriate manner. Frankly, Bill Rogers sounds very creepy when flirting with women as Brock or yelling, and he sounds horrendous in those scenes. He creeps me out a bit, actually. He sounds way too old for my tastes.

Conversely, Eric Stuart was a wonderful Brock and he never failed to hit all the right chords of Brock's personality, was excellent in all facets of expressing his emotions and in flirting scenes, and was all around very well cast as Brock.

Brock/Takeshi, the 15 year old prodigal pervert. Pokemon Breeder turned Pokemon Doctor.

So, anyway, here's what I think:

1) Yuji Ueda- He's very natural, and I don't know, I like something very much about his performance. It's a comforting voice, feels like he's saying "it's going to be alright, don't lose heart." Gentle, passionate, and simply phenomenal. I can't say much else.

2) Eric Stuart- Excellent. He started off a bit forced in the first...let's say 10 eps or so...but Eric then became excellent in the role. He maintained Yuji's calm and collected persona, but also wisdom without overdoing the performance. He seems to give a very caring and warm voice like Yuji did, and he makes Brock absolutely hilarious in the English version. Some have criticized it for sounding too much like Seto Kaiba, but I'd say Seto Kaiba sounds too much like Brock (after all the YGO 4Kids dub came after the Pokemon 4Kids dub). And that's besides the point: if a voice fits a character, I see no problem with it sounding somewhat alike. Eric kinda adds another dimension to Brock as well: he makes him absolutely hilarious in the flirting scenes. It's a performance that is truly great and like Veronica's Ash, it's priceless.

3) Bill Rogers- Decent performance. It's tough to carry on Eric's legacy and his work, but Bill seems to be trying his best and that's important. Now, when Bill speaks as Brock, it's a fitting voice and maintains Eric and Yuji's sense of wisdom. The yelling and flirting scenes...not so much. It's too deep when those occur, and is a bit jarring. Still, decent-good performance overall.

Like it or not, Eric Stuart didn't quit voice acting when he moved. He said in an interview that moved from New York to Tenesee because he wanted to get away from the craziness of the big city. He does work with his band but still gets time off because he really can't resist voice acting. He still voice acts and is willing to come back on Pokemon just like Taylor and Lillis.

Here is my ranking of Brock VA's.

1. Eric Stuart. This man MADE Brock, made Brock the funny, memorable and emotional character he is! I honestly can't see anything bad about his performance, he matches Brock's age and he is just too classic to pass off, not to mention he was one of 4kids best actors!

2. Yuji Ueda. Basically the Japanese equivalent of Eric, normally I like Japanese VA's in the anime a lot more than the English VA's but Eric's performance was special, so I put Yuji at second.

3. Bill Rogers. Oh lord... it's like TCPI paid no attention of Brock whatsoever: it sounds like an old, gruff, constipated 40 year old man! How old is Brock again? Oh that's right he's 18 years old, Bill sounds REALLY forced, and doesn't even match Brock's age! I would have to agree that ever since BF, Bill has got a little worse: thank the lord he wasn't in BW!

I still really miss Brock, especially how Eric voiced him, a timeless performance full of emotion, heart and character: another fine example of the 4 Kids voice work. :)

1. Eric Stuart- Truly natural performance and a lot of emotion and heart. Without Stuart Brock wouldn't be what he is today.
2. Bill Rogers - What can I say one of my favorite TPCi actors. Sure his Brock voice sounds forced and out of character. His voices for Combusken, Corphish and Sudowoodo as well as Quilava sound just as good as the predecessors. He's trying to improve he'll get there eventually.

Eric Stuart sounds a bit like Mel Gibson, but Bill Rogers sounds a bit like Danny Glover. Woah - a 'Pokemon version of "Lethal Weapon"!'

Eric. Brock always seemed to be kind of a thankless role to me, but Eric made up for that with making him mature and funny. Bill doesn't give him any depth.

Eric does the same voice as Kiba from Yu-Gi-Oh

No actually according to his site he did move to Nashville TN, that's for sure. Fortunately it looks like Eric did his lines as Gourry before he left though.

But anyways I always did like both VA's for Brock, I did like Eric Stuart a bit more but I am cool with Bill Rogers as well.

It's just a rumor. Funimation has confirmed in an official press release that he will reprise his role as Gourry in the new 26 episode season of Slayers. Plus he has other roles, like in Viva Pinata, and in various ads on 4KidsTV, so I'm pretty sure that he is merely trying to balance his time out!

Hey. I heard Eric Stuart quit voice-acting. Is that true? I hope not. Cause he rocks as Brock.

I would go for Eric, but after a few years it would make more sense to replace him with Bill

Ah, Brock- my favorite character in the entire series! Eric Stuart is clearly my choice; he makes Brock's voice sound goofier and funnier; no offense to Bill Rogers, it's just that he makes Brock sound so much older! Eric also did a great job voicing a lot of the other characters, such as Totodile, Squirtle, James, Dexter, etc...anyway, he has the best voice for Brock!

Bill Rogers. Eric Stuart's Brock has always been very rigid, he also didn't do too great keeping the Brock voice distinct from his other roles.

Eric Stuart. Everyone grew up with Eric Stuart's Brock, and left a big impression on fans everywhere. Bill Rogers' Brock sounds like he's in his 30s.

Eric Stuart hands down! Plus be makes being a pervert more interesting. He does a great job of being serious and being a pervert master!
Plus he did a great job at singing, who sings -with good intentions about being a one woman-man - about differnt woman and lives to tell the tale.

@Jackson_H I agree Rogers does his best with Brock sure there are some elements that he can not recreate only Eric can do a pure Brock voice but nevertheless Bill does fit it nicely

You a more normal voice for Eric Stuart's, since that's 'goofy' Brock. Normally they do sound really similar but 9 years of Eric Stuart makaes me prefer him just a bit, nothing personal Bill!

I'm more used to Eric so I vote for him, Bill makes him sound quite a bit older.
