As usual, Vic Mignogna gives it his best. The guy is simply an outstanding actor.

@TopGunman
I must disagree, Vic Mignogna sounds nothing like Keldeo should if you've seen the original version of Pocket Monsters Best Wishes Movie 2: Kyurem VS The Holy Swordsmen. It sounds very unfitting!

Let's not get back into subdub hell, but those guys will tell you that they don't care since their focus is adapting the story for the American audience and they don't have to make it sound exactly like the Japanese.

Well, only 13 more days until the movie's out on TV. Smile Who knows how Keldeo will fare in his fight against Kyurem? It seems that only time will tell...

That's moot, as there are many voice actors who's characters "all sound the same"; there's a reason why they keep getting cast with that voice.

"Voice acting" is a two string phrase after-all. If you're in a quandary as to why the same voice, maybe the "acting" part is a clue to their talents. Wink

It's not really that. It's more of the lines that Vic sucks at his job, rather than his lack of range. Add to the fact he is one of the few English language VAs, which 'specializes' at dubbing foreign animation and gets too much praise and fangirls for all the wrong reasons, that also is the reason why I cannot f**king stand Vic Mignogna! Evil or Very Mad

i too am also got sick of the dub sub bickering. but when it comes to this series that got Americanized to please the US audience & parental advocates, it will always happen. and it got worse after PUSA removed the original cast and used their VA.


Sure i am a dub only pursuit and a die hard pokemaniac but it really doesn't matter whether it's dub or sub though personally it would have been better for the series if they did use the original japaneese scripts as well as it's OP & ED songs when Diamond & Pearl start and the series was no longer being controled by 4kids.


Though I was susprised that Mignona of all people did voice work for this series of all things. A brief cameo character in ep 41 ( he voiced as the kid who owned the joltik ) was one thing, but in the movie is another story. When i heard it he cameoed as the kis as well is voicing in the movie, was so sure it some bad prank cause of the union/non union rules that would made this impossible.

I can get Dan Green VA on the series since he is a non union VA and the series has been using non union VA after PUSA took over, but how did mignona got into the series? Dont get me wrong, i am definitely glad he's in it, but i wonder it voicing here means that he also became a non union VA too. as well as his fellow funi VA Sabat ( VA for Goku ) who VA as hugh for the Black & White Version 2 trailer.

I never ignored it. It just won't do you any good because I cannot stand Vic Mignogna and when i watch FMA+FMAB+the movies, I'm going in sub only, because I've heard the dub was shit.

Alright, I'm seeing plenty of folks expressing their hate towards Vic here. Why is that? Confused I'll admit, his voice does sound a bit...rough-sounding for a cute-looking Pokemon such as Keldeo, but that wouldn't necessarily make him a bad actor for the character...would it?

Edit: On a side note...
Yes, I've finally made my 100th post! Smile
