I gotta admit, the mix of Los Angeles and NYC VAs into the dub cast is really doing wonders for the dub's voice acting quality. Some of VA choices are still not amazing (like Leon's dub voice, his Twilight Wings English VA is worlds better) but for the most part having VAs who are in a lot of anime dubs already make the episodes sound so new and fresh.

I Still prefer the anime in Japanese tho. ;)

I really wish they had used British VAs or at least British accents for Galar residents (for both the main anime and Twilight Wings). I do still like some of the VA choices, though.

As much as I would've loved that as well, it probably would've opened a can of worms that the dub probably didn't feel it could address - namely once you start giving people accents it leads to questions like why does Ash who is in Poké-Japan have an American accent, among other things.

Ultimately it was probably for the best that the dub kept away from doing accents. :(

While it is a good point that Japanese and French accents wouldn’t have really worked for the other regions, I think that British accents are just more iconic to a western audience. I don’t think many people would have batted an eye if the accents were just used for Galar.

Pokémon Masters, for example, has cast Gloria with a British accent and even gave French accents to Viola and Fantina. Koga was given a slight accent as well.

I Think Cinderace Will be Voiced by Casey Mongillo and Lucario by Bill Rogers
It'd be pretty cool if it was Sean Schemmel too. I mean we have Daisuke Namikawa voicing Ash's, they could hammer down the Lucario and the Mystery of Mew references even further if Sean voiced it.

With Iris returning soon I do wonder what they'll do with her English VA considering Eileen Stevens moved to Florida.

Yep, Dan Green has returned to the anime reprising his role as Chuck. Last time we heard him was in Black and White where he played a few characters such as Pierce.

With the last batch of this first half out we have Barron Bass voicing Chairman Rose, Jennifer Losi as Oleana, Mary O'Brady (returning since XY) as Professor Magnolia plus Robb Moreira as Oleana's Subordinate.

Daman Mills also voices Dreepy and Coalossal too and Sean Kenin is in the second to last episode.

Also interestingly Laura Post and Cristina Valenzuela are credited as additional voice directors from the Mewtwo episode onwards.

Mary 'O Brady? Wow!

And interesting about the additional VO directors bit - maybe because of quarantine?

Also wondering why Jessica Paquet didn't come back as Mallow? Maybe scheduling issues?

Jennifer Losi confirms that she voices Oleana

I was hoping they'd do a call back to Lucario and the Mystery of Mew by casting Sean Schemmel as Lucario. Sadly not as Bill Rogers voices it again

Looking at the credits, part of me was thinking Marc Thompson voices Duraludon but an email from him confirms this isn't the case

At least he confirmed voicing Goh's Farfetch'd

More confirmation of roles from Bill Rogers
