Would Pokemon games benefit from voice acting?

Voice acting? **** NO!

Legit monster sounds instead of the crap we've had for... ever? -- **** YES!


Nah. Pikachu's cry on Yellow version was replaced with a faint "Pika-chu!" voice clip. It's kinda cute, until you hear it for the 1000th time, when Pikachu goes into an impromptu permanent vacation to the PC.

What's the matter, the Zubats and Geodudes too much for you? Can't get through a cave with just five monsters? How sad. - mikeburnfire

With the current dialogue and structure? No, it would be incredibly awkward and a HUGE waste of resources in the wrong place.

And then comes the question, should they change the dialogue and how the scenes play out, so voice acting benefits it more? I don't think so, I don't want Pokemon to become "cinematic".

You also have some JRPGs that offer voice acting, besides having old school dialogue structures.
Games like Disgaea come to mind. But there is one problem, this usually only works for humorous toned games, it can't deliver anything serious without looking bad.

I said legit monster sounds, not voice acting.

We...could hunt for real monsters, I guess. Might be a tad hard. Maybe fishes from the abyssal sea?

No, it wouldn't. The last thing I need is to hear those horrible pokemon pronunciations like "Ar-key-us". Not to mention the pokemon saying their names like in the anime.

Imagine full vocalization of every line
"My rattata is in the top percentage of rattatas!"
It'd be like FFXIII-2 Academia 4xx all over

Tbh if the voice acting of the Pokemon was like Suicune from the Celebi movie then I'm down. But then I watched the anime and they changed Suicune's voice :/

Then no.

I think the real issue here is cart space. Pc games i own use around 500-900GB for voice files alone. I dont know if 3ds carts can support that much capacity. Granted, pokemon has short stories but you also need to count 700 pokemon. Maybe a game like that would need to have some pokemon cut like conquest and the new mystery dungeon. And less pokemon definitely wouldnt be a benefit.
