Both Veronica and Maddie had said that they would go back if they could. I'm not sure about Rachael though. I believe she does, but I'm not sure.

It's very sad that Eric wont want to return! Does that mean hope is lost for Brock and James ever being normal again? It's possible that he may change his mind if he is offered.

How is one person a lot of them?

Eric has told us that in the past. It's unfortunate, but nothing new.


And Pokeyug is correct. One person isn't a whole bunch of them.

Hey,
Yeah, a lot of those guys have gone over to work on Pokemon. Not really
where I want to be right now. I am proud of what I did on that show but
it's time to move on.
Eric.
Dang... that's surprising. It's kinda funny, since I'm so involved in the campaign to bring Ryan Drummond back as the voice of Sonic (as I've mentioned many times before, lol), but Ryan is pretty much the polar opposite. Even though Sega has treated him like trash, his love for the character makes him still want to come back no matter what. Here's what he told me last month (2 and a half years after being fired):

Ryan Drummond wrote:
Hey, Rach!!! Thanks to you and Steven for the voicemail! Smile The answer is YES, I would take the role of Sonic back in an instant if they would ever offer. But how much do you wanna bet they'll never offer? Smile Good to hear from you.
Keep in touch! Smile

Yeah, he smiles a lot X3 Gotta love that positive attitude of his.

Well, this is why I think we need to focus on one voice actor at a time. Obviously it seems that Eric will not come back, period, so we shouldn't even waste our time. We need to move on too and focus on those who DO want to come back. I'm not sure about Veronica. Lisa, you really need to check that out. We still need to hear from Rachael, and about Maddie, to be honest I don't think she's too thrilled about coming back. From what she's said in the past, it seems that she (like Eric seems to be) is upset at the whole thing and thus doesn't want anymore to do with it. I know at times she has seemed to say that she would like to come back, but I'm not really getting that vibe anymore.

So now there are 3.

Also Aipom Fan, would you mind telling Sarah to be careful how she pronounces Pikachu and Pokemon? She always seems to put a strong emphasis on the first syllabol of those words, causing it to sound totally different than how everyone else on the show says it. Example: instead of "Pi-Ka-Chu" she goes "PIIkachu" and instead of "Po-Ke-Mon" she says "POkemon. Itd be really nice if you could bring this up to her (preferrably in an actual message in myspace so that no one will comment on her page saying stuff like "oh no it doesnt matter blah blah")

I could possibly try someone else by sending them an e-mail, but most likely they will either give me the same reply, or just not even reply back at all.

Excuse me, but there are a few problems with your assumption here.

First of all, it does look like Eric Stuart has given up all hope of coming back to Pokemon. However, Eric is just one single member of the original cast and he doesn't speak for the other 3 members.

Second of all, I can tell you right now that Veronica, Rachael, and Maddie each still have a little bit of hope inside that they will return someday. And with that being said, as long as the original cast still wishes to return, I will continue SOVA.

But just because one VA seems to have given up hope, that is no reason why we should give up on SOVA or the rest of the cast.

I agree with you, Pokeyug.

I believe that, if the other 3 members of the original cast are approached by Pokemon USA and offered a chance to work on Pokemon, that they will accept the offer. Then, all they would have to do is convince Eric Stuart to accept this offer as well. A part of me really does believe that, given that chance (the chance he was never offered to begin with), he would want to continue working on Pokemon again.


I mean, afterall, if the rest of the original cast members were to accept an offer to return, than I don't see why Eric Stuart wouldn't want to join them in working on Pokemon. He did work with them on the show for 8 years, so needless to say, I think he should've been somewhat attached to playing Brock and James.

Apparently, Aipom Fan likes to make assumptions based on one single bit of information, lol. XD

But of course, assumptions don't always equal fact. And that's especially true in this case.

You're right, Lisa. After all of that hard work, I'm sure the original cast would love to come back and work on the show. Not just for the fans, but don't they make thousands of dollars off each episode?

When I met Veronica, she stated that VAs hardly make anything for what they do. She also said that all VAs need second jobs because of this.

Just remember guys, don't start flaming one another though. We're all entitled to our own thoughts and opinions, just keep it clean so others don't get their feelings hurt. Okay?

It sounds to me that eric stuart was pretty badly hurt by the whole voice change thing, after all if you worked hard and put body and soal into characters and then they were taken away im sure youd have some sourness to it.

But i do feel we should all continue to get all the original cast back im sure if the opportunity came eric would take his roles back.

Well continue fighting for each character we know and love.

I guess this means we cross Eric Stuart off the list.

Maybe this is a good time for us to get the actors that are commited to coming back to say so? If we don't even know which actors are gaurenteed to come back, then out efforts could get wasted.

I doubt that would accomplish anything. Why would she listen to some random Pokemon fan? If you want something done about it, then you should probably contact Tom Wayland seeing as he's the voice director. More than likely, he's the one who tells the VAs how to pronounce Pokemon names.

Keep remember the goal of SOVA: To give the original VA's a CHANCE to work on Pokemon again. If Eric is given the choice and turns it down due to his schedule, we still achieved the goal. It is our responsibility to achieve the goal and accept whatever result. If VAs have moved on, we cannot be bitter toward them. We are just trying to give them a choice they never had.

Eric did seem the be really hurt by the VA change. Just look at his website and a few interviews and you can really see his frustration and anger.

His band is also at an interesting point right now. He recently scored an international distribution deal that could mean some good stuff. From what I understand, he's really trying to get his music out there as much as possible in hopes of something happening. He released a CD late in 2007 and is already working on getting another CD out there. He's a busy guy :D

I think telling Sarah about this would at least cause her to become self conscious with it and hopefully she will realize how awkward she sounds in comparison to everyone else when saying those words.

If Eric's done with this, at least we can try for the others.

Marc Thompson used to voice a lot of minor characters in the Advanced era like Mitch Mitchum and Maxie (Team Magma).

Well, I agree with you, Geoff....

It is strange that I still haven't heard from Maddie yet.

I'll send the email again, just in case. ^^;


Also, it seems Pokemon USA keeps bringing in more and more VAs from 4Kids. Come on, Pokemon USA! We want the original cast members, not these minor VAs!! Crying or Very sad

It may not be much, but atleast we're making progress. The minor VA's are just the beginning (that is, if it is our doing). Soon (hopefully) we'll get the main ones back, and prove to all of those who doubted us that you should never underestimate the dedication and power of us fans!
