The Voice Behind Pokemon’s Ash Ketchum Reveals How Lonely His Job Can Be

In an interview with IGN, sara natochennythe voice behind Ash Ketchumtalked about having to record the protagonist’s dialogue without any other actors present.

“It’s a very lonely thing, and you don’t realize the impact you’re having until you go out and do conventions and meet fans.”

Despite playing Ash for the past 17 years, Natochenny has never met Pikachu’s voice actor, Ikue Ōtani, nor Rika Matsumoto, the Japanese voice actor for Ash (aka Satoshi). Natochenny has never found them because the Japanese cast records his lines long before the English dub cast.
