Default Pokémon Generations

Before I say anything else: if you are a Pokémon fan and haven't seen these shorts, do yourself a favor and sit down and watch them.

OK, so you may have noticed that there are no credits. Like, none whatsoever. That means currently, as far as voice actors go, we have only social media confirmations and our ears to go by. That said, pretty much everybody is hearing Richard Epcar as Giovanni, and Epcar himself has even liked and retweeted several tweets mentioning him as the character of Giovanni. So presumably this is a non-union LA dub. A few other posts have mentioned hearing Kaiji Tang or Ben Diskin, for what it's worth. I know that this is shaky evidence, but it's all we've got at this point.

(As for the Pokémon themselves, Pikachu is anyone's guess [it's pretty different from Ohtani's take] and the rest seem to be stock SFX.)

The agent guy in episode two sounds like Richard Epcar putting on a slightly goofy, nasally voice to me.

Looker is totally Kaiji Tang.

Agent who says they've discovered Giovanni's location is vaguely familiar, but there isn't much to go off. Ben Diskin maybe? The cop who talks to Looker at the end is probably the same actor.

Richard Epcar as Giovanni is pretty self-evident. Wonder why they didn't get Jamieson Price back.

I think this seals it. Looks like Ellyn Stern is involved as well.

I heard Kaiji Tang for Looker and Richard Epcar as both Giovanni and the agent as well. Probably the same dub staff who did Origins on this one.

Kaiji Tang confirmed he was Looker.

He confirmed that was him.

As for replacing Jamieson with Richard, I'd imagine they're going more for "gruff" than "smooth ham". From what I've heard of the subs (for the main Pokemon series), Kenta Miyake has been doing his voice for awhile (after Hirotaka Suzuki's death), & while I like Jamieson, I guess they went a slightly different direction here.

Just throwing that out there - if they're changing VA's in the Japanese version, which is incredibly high-bar & expensive for a Japanese production...I don't necessarily think they'll care to keep in their insanely low-budget English dub.

Erik S. Kimerer confirmed for Blue.

While this may be the case, where have you heard this?


Also, episode 3 came out. Shopped for some confirmations and my ear didn't fail me.

Blue - Erik Kimerer
Lorelei - Erica Lindbeck

The others are guesswork.

Lance - Ben Diskin, it sounds like. An odd choice, he sounds like Young Xehanhort...
Bruno - Deep voice but not any of the usual suspects. Chris Tergliafera? I dunno.
Agatha - Have no idea. It sounds like a younger VA doing an old lady voice rather than an actually older VA.

Richard Epcar did say Ellyn Stern was involved. Agatha would make sense for her, though I do agree Agatha sounds oddly young, so it would probably serve us to look elsewhere.

Lance is definitely Ben Diskin.

Bruno is not someone I recognize.
