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.

 1 Shout Out!
1. Nick Stellate: Great Pokédex voice, I loved his monologue in "A Pokémon Emergency"
2. Eric Stuart: He is a great replacement for Stellate, he differentiated his performance per regions, I remember the Kanto Battle Frontier saga it was just a modified Brock voice.
3. Rachael Lillis: For Dextette she sounds great at first the voice was a little low but as the Hoenn saga went on she improved greatly.
4. Marc Thompson: His voice isn't too bad but the delivery seems a little off.
5. Bill Rogers: It's just a cheap cartoon imitation of Stuart.
6. Michele Knotz: Sounds too much like her May voice only younger.

I have not heard Alyson Rosenfield so I can not comment.

Stuart and Lillis are really the only ones I care for and sounded good in the role to me, providing distinct voices for the male and female Dexter and Dextette, while also sounding unique: Thompson sounded way too flat and uninteresting to me like any typical robotic voice, and Rogers' delivery is really, really bad.

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.
said at 3:18 PM on Sat Aug 9 2014
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.

@rosebr10 Well, I can't argue with that.

@Nightmare Crusher That's interesting to know. Maybe Nick was busy with other projects, and that's why Eric Stuart replaced him?
said at 6:54 AM on Sun May 25 2014
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)
Stuart (Late Kanto-Johto)
said at 7:07 AM on Sun Jun 22 2014
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.
said at 12:53 PM on Thu Jan 23 2014
Eric was better in Kanto, not this clip that I will say

Don't like Rogers, Knotz and Lilis though
said at 7:18 PM on Thu Dec 26 2013
My cousin likes Michele Knotz best! I like Marc Thompson best. Perfect for the roe.
said at 9:17 PM on Wed Oct 9 2013
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.
said at 10:24 PM on Tue Aug 20 2013
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.
said at 10:30 PM on Sat Jul 27 2013
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
said at 12:26 AM on Wed Nov 21 2012
Eric Stuart is most suitable for my tastes.
said at 5:30 PM on Thu Aug 30 2012
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?

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."
