Voice Compare » Pokemon » Tracey Sketchit

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Tracey Sketchit with sound clips and images.
Tracey Sketchit is a Pokemon watcher and the assistant of Professor Oak. Tracey loves to sketch drawings of Pokemon and he also has a broad knowledge about Pokemon. Tracey admires Professor Oak and it was a dream come true to be accepted as an assistant. During the adventures in the Orange Islands Tracey was Ash Ketchum's traveling companion along with Misty. It was during this season that he replace Brock.

When the producers of the Pokemon anime realized that Pokemon would air in international countries, they were worried that some viewers may perceive Brock as a racist character; since he rarely ever opens his eyes. So they wrote Brock out of the story with the intention he would stay with Professor Ivy permanently and at long last be happy with a woman who loved him. However when fans expressed how much they missed Brock and no one complained about any racism, the producers brought Brock back for the adventures in Johto and had Tracey stay with Professor Oak.

In the English dub version of the Pokemon anime by 4Kids Entertainment, Tracey was originally voiced by Ted Lewis. After 4Kids lost the license for the anime, Craig Blair instead voiced the role for his appearance in the episode "Home is Where the Start Is".

EDITOR'S OPINION

Craig Blair's voice for Tracey is a bit more mature and it's a decent replacement but I personally prefer the voice Ted Lewis gave for the character.

Ted Lewis made Tracey, an otherwise fairly forgettable and bland character, stand out a bit more and he was fairly good in the role. Not too memorable or anything, but he did Tracey fairly well given the character's nature. 9/10

Craig Blair was okay, actually: not good, but not bad, either. As Galactic_Cyrus has said, Tracey himself is a fairly bland character, so it fits well enough. He certainly had some awkward delivery of his lines and the acting was pretty artificial when compared to Ted Lewis' Tracey, but it's average. 7/10

Ted Lewis makes Tracey a bit more enjoyable than he would be otherwise, but unlike with Giovanni, I don't think Craig Blair was that bad in the role. He sounds sort of bland, but that's exactly what Tracy is, so it fits. XD

Ted Lewis. Very happy that TPCi let him come back as Giovanni as well. He will be Tracey in all future vocal appearances as Craig Blair has departed the franchise. This will make Tracey the first (and possibly, the only) main cast member to regain his original English voice actor.

Ted Lewis. Final. Period. Craig Blair messed up with Tracey worse than Giovanni. Since Craig Blair is no longer with Pokemon USA, I bet there's a chance for Ted Lewis to do the voice of Tracey again.

@Skyler24 I hope so too. If it does happen, Tracey would probably be the first main character to get his first actor back. Hopefully, it will happen.

Ted Lewis is most fitting of the two. Craig Blair is very good as well, but a bit high pitched and forced.

Ted gave Tracey his own personality which unfortunately can't be reproduce by a replacement actor
