With the episode having aired in Canada, guess it is OK to create a review post for it

Just watched it. Hala sounds a little deeper and younger than I imagined. I was gonna imagine his voice as some sort of kung fu sensei.

I'm glad he sounds fairly distinct. Lisa Oritz can only voice so many girls before it gets worrying.

Just finished watching this episode and I like it. Hala's voice definitely sounds a bit diffrent from what I expected and Ash with his 1st crystal the Normalium-Z awesome! That battle with Gumshoos was something and hope Hala is taking notes cuz next week is going to be interesting! I'll give this one a 8.5/10.

I quite enjoyed this episode, will be curious to see who voices Machamp as I believe that is a former Tom Wayland role

Starting to enjoy the series more and more

Same. He sounds like he mumbles a bit in the dub at times too, imo: not the worst thing I've heard, but not what I had in mind, personally.

Anyway, the dub only kept 2 pieces of music in this episode (title card, SM wild battle theme) & there's no silence or anything, standard fare I suppose (I know some don't care about music kept or silence or no silence, just saying).

Dialogue/script writing, same fare, "Bewear Blast" alliteration from Jessie, "ten times ten" alliteration from James, and Ash doesn't speak like a 10 year old sometimes with saying "you got me out of a jam" or something, also expected.

Not trying to be a dick, if you like the dub that's fine, but that's just my opinion as always.

His japanese voice is also younger than what you imagine.

Could this Aaron Phillips be dub Hala and Samantha Moon (what a name) be SM dub Officer Jenny? I'm probably wrong, but just curious.

Ryan Andes, Samantha Moon, Aaron Phillips, Billy Bob Thompson and Marc Thompson are the only actors I can't guess who they voice

The 1st 3 actors I think have never voiced for Pokemon before interesting and the Thompson people have been with the show for a long time actually.

Hmm....Ryan Andes could be dub Hala too, who knows?
And yup, Thompson people have been here since BW's dub in Billy Bob's case and Marc's case, since the Johto dub, IIRC.

Then he may voice another character like Hala perhaps
From what I can see, the characters with unconfirmed voice actors are:

Hala
Machamp
Villagers
Ratatta
Raticate
Officer Jenny
Yungoos
Gumshoos
