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.

EDITOR'S OPINION

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.

I could see Sam Vincent voicing Dexter if the Ocean Group ever dubbed Pokemon. Anyone else?

Bill Rogers is the worst of them, for me. You hear that is something an actor shouldn't do.

It's at least better than his Brock, but yeah, he's definitely the weakest link in this comparison.

#1) Nick Stellate/Nicholas James Tate- Nailed it. 10/10
#2) Eric Stuart- Excellent replacement: not as good as his predecessor, but definitely did him justice. 9/10
#3) Rachael Lillis- Very good, but a little flat-sounding. 8/10
#4) Marc Thompson- Decent, but very flat sounding. 7/10
#5) Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld- Poor, but better than the extraordinarily high pitched seiyu's take. 6/10
#6) Michele Knotz- What Element Riser said. 3/10
#7) Bill Rogers- Again, what Element Riser said. 1/10

#1: Nick Stellate - The best Pokedex voice.
#2: Eric Stuart - Not as good as Nick Stellate, but still great.
#3: Rachael Lillis/Marc Thompson - Both of them are unique takes that work for me.
#5: Michele Knotz - Not only doesn't she sound like Rachael Lillis, but she can't deliver lines properly, either.
#6: Bill Rogers - See #5, but replace "Rachael Lillis" with "Eric Stuart". The worst of the worst.

Just to set the record straight, the voice of the Pokedex in the first 49 episodes wasn't Stuart at all.

@Nightmare Crusher That's interesting to know. Maybe Nick was busy with other projects, and that's why Eric Stuart replaced him?

@wiley207
Moving to LA in '99 pretty much seals the deal. The fact that the 'dex just so happened to be receiving an upgrade made for the perfect opportunity to switch the role. Natuarlly, it fell to Stuart, who was already the other major Shinichiro Miki role (in addition to many to his Pokemon).

I don't suppose you know who voiced the Kalos Pokedex? For the record, my order:

Stuart (Early Kanto)
Thompson (he got much better than the clip above shows late into Unova)
Lillis
Stuart (Late Kanto-Johto)
Kalos
Rogers
Knotz

Alyson Rosenfeld, and also, I have to disagree on Thompson-- I think Lillis and Stuart did better than him when they improved, though Thompson is TPCi's best PokeDex VA, IMO.

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.

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

For the male, I'd have to say Eric.
As for the female, Michelle. Rachel sounded a bit too robotic.

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."

LOL

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.

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.
