Do you want voice acting in this game?

And do you want your Pokemon to actually say its name like in the anime instead of sounding like some screwed up 8-bit computerized sound for its battle cry?

I'd like the battle cries to be a bit more than past gens. The 3DS can handle it now.

Voice acting, definitely no. Some games just dont need it.

Battle cries should get an update by now.

I wouldn't say I want it, but if they implemented it well I wouldn't have a problem with it.

I want voice acting just as much as the next person...

...however, there's quite a lot of barriers to hurdle through. If you're just talking about the Pokemon, well, there's a problem- there's 649 of the guys counting just the first five generations, 654 counting the Pokemon we just learned about today, an implied yet guaranteed 660 considering three-stage evolutions for the starters, and at least 749 if Gen 6 is a minimalist generation.

What I'm trying to get across is that the company would need a lot of voice actors to do all those voices, and that's just one language. Taking the original Japanese market and even one other European market who I don't know has more priority (French? German?) into account, as well as union rules and contracting concerns that could differ by region, the Pokemon Company would be looking at having to get a combined number of voice actors in the high hundreds, if not low single thousands, to dub the creature sounds in every language, even if the voice actor multi-roled, and even by skimming with Pokemon whose names are the same in every language. A HUGE undertaking not to be treated lightly.

That said, it would be a miracle and great if such hard work could actually be done. But it's just not financially viable or really all that worth it to do such a function that could be equally fulfilled with artificial sound programs...although I gotta say the older Pokemon do need better quality cries.

Now the human characters...as long as there were a real budget for it and there were a great voice director and voice actors on board, that wouldn't be a problem.

Depends on how good compression has gotten and how big cartridges can get.
