So, was the game dubbed at Formosa, Cup of Tea or BangZoom! ?
said at 3:25 AM on Wed Mar 28 2018
@Luigikun Oh wait, never mind, it's from BangZoom.
said at 8:16 PM on Sat Mar 31 2018
@Luigikun Yup, and it's considered both the FIRST Pokemon game title dubbed at Bang Zoom! and the FIRST Nintendo game dubbed at this studio

So happy that Kaiji Tang got casted for Detective Pikachu. Pretty good from what I have heard so far.

Nice to see Kira Buckland and Cristina Vee doing something Pokemon related again too, I think this is now the third or fourth time for Cristina in fact.

Fifth, actually, IIRC.

That daycare episode of BW (Layla), Origins (Cubone), Generations (Shelly), the Mewtwo Prologue special (Anna) and now this. Cristina's on a roll.

@RetroPokeFan I honestly find it to be incredibly fitting considering he was Looker in Generations.

New trailer is out. I know it might sound bizarre but I think I hear Laura Bailey as Emilia. I can't put my finger on who Wallace is although he sounds really familiar...

@Soul-dragon Sounds like Christopher Corey Smith.
said at 7:53 AM on Sat Feb 24 2018
@Nightmare Crusher Ah. That's it! Thank you!

@Soul-dragon If Laura Bailey shows up in this (which chances are she won't) my draw would be dropping instantly.

Also could be Alexis Tipton.
said at 6:18 AM on Tue Feb 27 2018
@RetroPokeFan Same. I had to listen not once but three other times to see if my ears were deceiving me and they weren't. It really sounds just like her however I'm willing to guess it's a sound alike. I don't think it's Alexis however, her cute voice (which I associate with Kofuku) sounds quite different. There is a chance this was recorded a while ago but we'll wait and see.

@Soul-dragon I think Emilia is Kira Buckland but could be wrong. Also, Chris Smith is most likely MewTwo judging from the dialoge, he talks about destroying humans after all.
said at 7:26 AM on Tue Feb 27 2018
@Marakutanay I can't quite hear it...but it seems way more likely than Laura so I'm going to go with that guess (although it could also be Stephanie Sheh). And yeah Christopher Corey Smith is definitely Mewtwo which seems like a really nice choice IMO (although no one could replace Jay Goede in the role).
said at 7:28 AM on Tue Feb 27 2018
However after taking a look I'm pretty sure Emilia is Natalie Lander. It sounds like her Amelia.
said at 6:29 AM on Sun Mar 11 2018
@Marakutanay If he is Mewtwo than I really hope that they'll bring him back for Smash 5. It would be nice to see IMO.

Wait, are people legitimately upset that they didn’t cast DeVito as Pikachu? It was a funny concept, but getting him on a Hollywood movie nowadays is expensive - on a presumably non-union game dub he’s a pipe dream.

Considering how much Pikachu sounds like Kaiji Tang, it seems like we’re looking at another LA dub. And in my humble opinion, it’s currently more on par with Origins’ dub than Generations’. Make sense, since they’ve had about two years to work on it.

This is what happens when people take jokes too far.

@technickal Not to mention he literally has no clue what Pokémon is so it would have been written down as an absolute miscast.
said at 1:16 AM on Wed Jan 17 2018
@RetroPokeFan How does not knowing what Pokémon is make it a miscast
said at 6:10 AM on Tue Jan 30 2018
@technickal OMG are people actually mad about that?
said at 5:39 AM on Fri Mar 16 2018
@RetroPokeFan Pretty sure many celeberty voice actors don't even know what they're cast for most of the time. John De Lancie had no idea he was in My Little Pony after all.

@technickal You were right :O !

So since Ultra Sun & Moon is the final Pokémon game for 3DS I guess that means this is never EVER seeing a proper translation now is it?
said at 6:13 AM on Sat Nov 18 2017
Looks like 2003 Roy Mustang has went on to be Pikachu to a bunch of vaguely freaky looking humans

Danny DeVito, please.
said at 10:25 PM on Sun Jul 17 2016
@TeridaxXD001 ...and he's refusing.

Also, kind of weird how only one of these characters has a Japanese name.
said at 3:16 AM on Mon Oct 24 2016
@TeridaxXD001 get his vocal stand-in Robert Costanzo on board then

I'm now kind of worried they're going to use the English speaking actors in Japan for this dub now...assuming it gets one.
said at 9:03 PM on Mon Oct 24 2016
@Autovolt I don't understand how they can announce an American movie based in this game without announcing an American release OF the game.
said at 1:11 PM on Mon Dec 26 2016
@TeridaxXD001 It's a little bit like how they can release an American CGI movie without dubbing the FFXV anime - different markets, different priorities.
said at 10:59 AM on Wed Dec 28 2016
@huzaifa_ahmed Here's hoping it gets released, anyway.
