We don't know for sure yet what's going to happen, but Ikue Ohtani has become sick. With what, I'm not sure, but it's serious enough that she's resigned as the global voice of Pikachu. :cry: I guess the two options would be to use existing clips of her voice to cover the rest of the series (there's certainly enough source material to make that workable if the series is nearly over), or they find another actress/actor to replace her (more likely if the series continues past the Battle Frontier). Ikue Ohtani has been doing Pikahcu since the debut of the series (except in the dub, where the first couple dozen episodes had Rachel Lillis filling in), and her voice is of course recognized worldwide. Here's hoping the crew handles this situation well!
