From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Bill Rogers is an American voice actor who provides voices for the English-language dub of the Pokémon anime.
He is not related to voice actress Kayzie Rogers.
Rogers started off as a stage and television actor. He had always been a fan of anime, and in 1999, he got his first role, a small part on The Irresponsible Captain Tylor. Since then, he has gone on to voice many notable characters in various anime series. He is known among fans and co-workers for his sense of humor.
Rogers began to provide voices for Pokémon starting with The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon, when Pokémon USA and TAJ Productions took over the dubbing and distribution of the anime. He had taken over the roles of Brock, Scott, and Drew for the ninth season, and requested to provide the voice of Bonsly as well. Most notably he provides the voice of Brock's Sudowoodo, Croagunk and Ash's Infernape for the Diamond & Pearl series. As of The Rise of Darkrai, Rogers began doing the script timing for episodes. With the departure of Brock at the end of the Diamond & Pearl series, Rogers' contributions to the series reduced, although he did continue to voice minor characters (such as Ghetsis) and Pokémon (including Cilan's Stunfisk and Dawn's Quilava).
Several of his Pokémon roles were previously done by Darren Dunstan or Eric Stuart in the 4Kids dub.
Bill Rogers posted under the name "NewBrock" at Bulbagarden Forums and Serebii.Net Forums, his first post was an open letter about the recasting controversy.
