Ash’s Original Voice Actor Returns to Pokemon for Deep Dive Audiobook
Ash’s original voice actor returns to Pokemon for Deep Dive Audiobook
Although it’s been 17 years since Veronica Taylor played Ash Ketchum (the protagonist of the Pokemon anime), many older fans still hold her performance dear to their hearts. This is not a criticism of Sarah Natochenny, who assumed the English role in 2005. However, when you hear one voice for many years, it tends to stay with you.
Taylor, however, has put her Ash voice to use on online videos here and there. This has allowed Taylor to stay with the franchise despite not being the main character. This is now being extended to an audiobook about Pokemon’simpact. It has been announced that Taylor will read Monster Kids How Pokemon Taught A Generation to Catch Them All.
Revealed on Twitter, Taylor would be contributing her vocal talents to the new audiobook’s launch on October 4th. The online site Running Press for the book explains that the book is “an in-depth view of the franchise’s many branches and influence”. It includes interviews about the evolution of the series from two Game Boy RPGs to the global phenomenon it is today.
Audiobooks have become my favourite way to read books. I love that I can listen to audiobooks while reading other books. I can enjoy the voice acting, and it has allowed me to hear a book that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to. Perhaps October will bring back memories, and I want to hear Ash Ketchum talk about Pokémon.

Pokemon fans still have something to look forward to. A new Pokemon Presents showcase will air Wednesday, August 3rd. There’s the reason for the hope that it will include the unveiling of a new Eevee mutation.
