Thanks for finding more answers.

Michael Haigney was not Blaine and "Jayne Grand" wasn't Lorelei/"Prima". For the latter, I asked her myself and she confirmed she wasn't. Michael Haigney also did not play the Orange Islands leader, "Danny" - which was Jim Malone; the show's other more prominent director. Lorelei's still a mystery, but after cross-checking some episodes of Slayers, I'm actually pretty sure "Roger Kay" (http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Roger-Kay/) might've been Blaine. It'd add up, since he would've worked with those folks from prior to Pokemon, and a few of the incidentals he's credited for sound a lot like Blaine - then again, "oh it kinda sounds like so-and-so" is how we get a lot of these mistakes in the first place, so don't take my 100% word for it.

First of all, I'm so amazed you were able to interview the original Mewtwo. And it's nice to learn all this information. I never knew, until today, that Jay Goede was also the voice of Dr. Fuji.

About Pokémon Puzzle league, I think THIS may be the case:

Maybe it's a silly example, but I met Fifth Doctor actor Peter Davison at a convention in may last year and he doesn't remember doing any of the Doctor Who audiobooks he's in, because he's voicing so many.

Mewtwo doesn't have a big amount of lines in the game, so it's possible Jay forgot he did them.

I really hope he returns to Pokémon some day in the future. Smash could've had him, but they wasted Mewtwo's return to the franchise by giving him almost no lines and keeping the Japanese actor for the ones he has.

Who is the same person as Michael Haigney (source: Facebook).

He did a great job as Blaine (and as voice director for most of the 4Kids dub). Props to Michael.

So Michael Haigney is Roger Kay? Didn't see that coming. Now I can see why he wasn't credtied, even though many have credited Mike for Psyduck.

Wow, major props to Rosebr. He unmasked not one, but two Pokémon VA aliases long shrouded in mystery.

Come to think of it, we should've gotten to this conclusion earlier. "Kay" was directly credited for Geodude in Pokémon Channel, and he's normally voiced by Michael Haigney. Combine that with the fact that we didn't have any further information on "Kay" besides his roles on Pokémon and The Slayers, along with Haigney being uncredited, and I don't know why we didn't put two and two together.

Rosebr, could you see if you can get any information on Aya's VA from him on Facebook?
