The voice changing was sad, it was when the show's ownership changed hands. They decided to instead get all new actors to make sure they didn't have loyalty to the other people. The guy who played professor oak was really broken up about it, his kids loved growing up with their dad as professor oak and he would do the voices when he saw their friends and just loved being a part of so many people's lives. He is a REALLY cool guy actually, lol, he cosplayed as his own character for an interview hehe!
My friend and I love to be competitive and so we love all the new pokemon. We always get the new games and see who can catch them all first. We've never caught all of them(thanks mostly due to japan having their own special giveaways that foreigners can't be apart of) but in pearl and diamond we each had only 4 left. :D Of ALL of them, not just the new ones. It's fun and silly and I love it :) A lot of people dislike the new ones..but you know, they are only foreign to us because they are new. People complain about them being uncreative and how some aren't even based on real animals..but come on..magnemite? Grimer? :) We have nostalgia attached to them. If we were just introduced to them, we wouldn't like them as much either I don't think. Artistically, I think they are cute. I love the new grass snake, he's got such a snobby face. I also love the baby crocodile. I never remember their names, because I always nickname them C: To me--new pokemon=new competitions with my best friend, new fun names to come up with(they have to be good!), new pokemon to use to make the perfect team to wipe out Jordan's, and of course, new pokemon to just name after my pets. FINALLY, a snake that isn't a poison type. I named him Morelia, after tree python species :) and my crocodile is named Bindi after one of Steve Irwin's crocs.(well, and his daughter lol) but that doesn't mean I don't also love the originals. Charizard, heck yes. Magikarp, I love his goofs. But boy I also love how pointless Bibarel is. What a useless animal. I used mine to win beauty contests LOL :D
My friend made a HUGE 7 foot long arcanine stuffed animal :D and we plan to make a snorlax beanbag cover for their giant super beanbag.
Oh, I also love getting wrong gendered looking pokemon. Like my female machamp, Peggy. If it looks like a girl, I love to catch only the boys. XD It's great.
