The fill ins for JCC really tired to emulate his performances and you still thought it was off?
 
So it seems James and Meowth have been recast, which means JCC couldn't make it to the end of this season, and this is honestly upsetting (his cast credit is probably for archive voices for Pokemon he voices), I was hoping he would be able to finish the season but I'm guessing either Lisa Ortiz or his Doctors advised him to step away for the sake of his health which is completely understandable but still heartbreaking nonetheless... it's a real shame. At the very least he's still doing Script Adaptation.
 
So how did the dub handle the ending? Were scenes cut? Also does the dub still keep the to be continued text or not?

for TV broadcast at least it cut most of the ending with the exception of the new scenes at the end (Ash meeting Butterfree, Goh meeting Misty etc) however this may be restored for the digital release so all hope is not lost and surprisingly the text for To Be Continued was kept!

Not a single word from Lugia, unlike in the original.
Sounds like James and Meowth were indeed recast. Whoever voiced them did a spot on impersonation of James Carter Cathcart's version of the characters.

My guess as for who the VA for James is, it would be Ted Lewis. I could've sworn I heard a hint of Giovanni in some of his lines. As for Meowth, my best guess would be Billy Bob Thompson.
Do you notice the comparison between this new James voice with SM's Rotom Pokédex? Thus my Roger assumption, if not, what/who else...
 
Did they replace James and Meowth's voice? They sound different. Hopefully for the remaining episodes, Eric Stuart will return as James!
 
Koffing has one of the easiest voices to do yet Bill Rodgers is awful at it. BRING BACK MICHAEL HAIGNEY or reuse his voice clips.

Why would Pidgeotto and Paras be dubbed? They’ve always kept the Japanese voice.
 
Kept its Japanese voice in the 4Kids Era throughout, didn’t it? I remember hearing Iwark a lot dubbed, especially Brock’s (Unsho Ishizuka).

Brock’s Steelix got dubbed over for the first time ever in the Arceus Chronicles dub, too, trivia.

Interestingly Steelix KEEPS it's Japanese voice in the most recent dub episode. So maybe there was something wrong with the audio file in the Arceus Chronicles as sometimes that does happen.
