Voice Compare » Pokemon » Dexter

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Dexter with sound clips and images.
Dexter is the name of Ash Ketchum's Pokedex. The Pokedex was invented by Professor Oak and provides information about Pokemon such as basic descriptions, moves and type. Over the course of the series Dexter has received various upgrades and models to constantly adapt to new Pokemon discoveries and regions.

In the English dub version of the Pokemon anime series, Dexter was first voiced by 4Kids voice actor Eric Stuart for the Kanto, Orange Islands and Johto sagas.

For the Hoenn saga Dexter had a voice change and was voiced by 4Kids voice actor Rachael Lillis.

For the Battle Frontier saga Eric Stuart once again voiced Dexter until Pokemon USA took control of the anime. Dexter was then voiced by Bill Rogers.

For the Sinnoh saga Dexter had another voice change and is voiced by Michele Knotz.

For the Unova saga (Besh Wishes) Dexter is voiced by Marc Thompson.

A tricky Voice Compare since the voices are a mix of male and female voices. My nostalgia and bias picks Eric Stuart's voice as my personal favorite, but the others are pretty good too.

Eric was better in Kanto, not this clip that I will say

Don't like Rogers, Knotz and Lilis though

My cousin likes Michele Knotz best! I like Marc Thompson best. Perfect for the roe.

I think Marc Thompson is a bit TOO robotic and flat in this role, albeit an improvement on Knotz and Rogers' take on the Pokedex(es). I love him, but I feel Rachael Lillis gave her take a less flat feeling and gave it a bit more personality, so she's my second favorite. Of course, Eric Stuart takes the cake here.

Eric Stuart did it best, but I actually prefer his earliest work as Dexter rather than the high-pitched voice he has in the clip. Marc Thompson's classy sounding voice would be second, while Rachael Lillis comes third. Wasn't too fond of the super high-pitched Bill Rogers and Michelle Knotz Pokedexes.

Good old Eric Stuart is a classic and I can't pass him up here. "It usually takes food from STUPID travelers." Very natural for the Kanto, Johto, and Battle Frontier (pre-TPCi dub) Pokedex.

I'd say Rachael Lillis was the second best and worked very well for the Hoenn Pokedex.

In third would be Marc Thompson. He's okay, if a little too robotic for me, in the BW dub. He does an OK job with the Unova Pokedex.

In fourth is Bill Rogers, who's imitation of Eric Stuart was good, but whose delivery was awful as the Battle Frontier Pokedex.

In fifth is Michele Knotz, who was pretty annoying as the Sinnoh Pokedex. At times she felt lifeless and bored silly when reading the entries.

I meant to say decide. sorry.

Personally, I don't know what to say about the Pokedex voice. They're all different you know. How can I decibe the best voice actor if they're all different kinds of Pokedexes

Eric Stuart don't mind the other except bill

Eric Stuart is most suitable for my tastes.

As for my opinion on the other VA's (Bill and Marc), Bill sounds both rushed and forced. And then there's the current one, Marc Thompson. He sounds quite bland and generic, but is fitting for the role.

I actually don't mind Marc Thompsons version. But it comes down to Eric & Rachael, I'm going with Eric purely because of Nostalgia, but also I think a males voice suits Dexter. Rachael for a female Dexter version though definitely

The Pokedex is so hard to rank
1. Eric Stuart - Nostalgic and some very good acting
2. Rachael Lillis - Misty's voice, no doubt although the voice was a little lower when Dextette made it's debut
3. Marc Thompson - Perfect for the Unova Region
4. Bill Rogers - Decent impression of Eric's voice, but it sounds really awkward
5. Michele Knotz - She has been used way too much in the TPCi dub
said at 1:18 AM on Sun Jul 8 2012
For the male, I'd have to say Eric.
As for the female, Michelle. Rachel sounded a bit too robotic.

Lillis' sound clip sounds compressed can I send you a high quality sound clip?
said at 10:58 PM on Fri Feb 17 2012
@MatthewC17 scratch that both Rachael and Bill's sound clips sound compressed

1. Eric Stuart (This voice is just too classic to pass up)
2. Rachael Lillis (Decent female version)
3. Michele Knotz (Nothing special, but it's workable)
4. Marc Thompson (Interesting new take, but vocal delivery often sounds awkward)
5. Bill Rogers (Good imitation of Eric's voice, but the delivery is very bad).

I like Eric's Dexter the best. I think Dexter should sound like he did in the begining but you can't win them all.

"I am Dexter a pokedex programmed by professor Sammuel Oak for pokemon trainer Ash Ketchum of the town of Pallet. My job is to provide Ash with information on pokemon species and habitats. If lost or stolen I cannot be replaced."

Regarding Eric Stuart's Dexter voice, it actually initially sounded different in the older episodes, but then the reverb effect was changed due to Ash getting the Pokedex upgraded in "Who Gets to Keep Togepi." The version presented in this clip is the "upgraded" version. Still the same voice actor nonetheless.

Hate to say it, but Rachael and Bill are harmful to the ears to me. Eric and Michelle are the ones for me, but I'd have to say Eric.

Dexter is rather off voiced by Eric Stuart than anyone. And that's the truth! The double truth, Ruth. I also give little props to Rachel.
