Some Bulbapedia members have formed a project to better organize efforts to write and improve articles about voice actors of the Pokémon anime. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list.

Project VA

Scope and aims

Project VA covers all articles about the voice actors of the Pokémon anime.

Participants

Project guidelines

Notability

Japanese and American voice actors are notable, provided they answer at least one of the following:

  1. They voiced a main and/or recurring character in the anime for more than one episode.
  2. They voiced at least 10 minor characters (characters of the day).
  3. They had parts in at least 20 episodes.

International voice actors are no longer considered notable, as their information should be listed on Project Globe's articles.

Exceptions can still be made to either side - the final decision in case of dispute will be made by the administrators.

Article structure

When writing a new article please follow this method. Use this as a guideline if needed.

English voice actors

'''VA name''' is a voice actor for the English dub of the [[Pokémon anime]].

Japanese seiyū

'''VA name''' (Japanese: '''Name in Japanese''' ''English translation'') is a Japanese seiyū for the [[Pokémon anime]].

Please note that after the Japanese name, be sure to put the last name first followed by the first name in the italics.

If you'd like, add their date of births and/or where they were born/grew up. You may also add what other kinds of jobs they had or what schools they have attended.

The rest of the body should look like this:

==Pokémon roles==

Roles in the anime should be added here. It is encouraged that you add when they started their work or what their most important roles are. There roles should be listed by placing a bullet * before the role. If a voice actor has many roles, please divide them into "Major" and "Minor" subsections. Also, separate the human roles from the Pokémon roles by giving them their own subsections.

==Other non-Pokémon roles==

Roles in other works such as other animes, T.V. shows, video games, etc. should be listed here. If possible, please give links from Wikipedia to the characters or anime by using the {{wp}} template. Here's an example: <code>{{wp|Name of role/anime}}</code>.

And finally, be sure to categorize.

Mentioning voice actors in other articles

Character aricles should only mention the Japanese and English voice actors in the main text. All other voice actors, if known, should be listed in a table in a separated section towards the end.

Goals

  1. To create comprehensive pages for notable voice actors.
  2. To determine the voice actors of all characters in the anime.
