Any Companion You'd Like As Main Character Again?

    345ash-greninja Grinning Shorty is the most adorable

    IIRC the primary reason May didn't return in XY to promote ORAS was because her VA was retired. People in Japan are very sensitive regarding VAs of main characters as we all know.

    If you mean her 4Kids VA Veronica Taylor...

    Nope! She actually has had some of the most popular roles as Fire Emblem's Micaiah and Dragon Ball Super's Ribrianne.

    Cilan for sure. I really thought he was very entertaining and I do like how he incorporates food talk into most of the things he does. As a little bonus it would be nice to know why he's scared of Purrloin so much since we never got an answer to that.

    None, actually. I wouldn’t mind them popping up every now and then.

    I have never seen a source for KAORI. retiring from voice acting; it is customary for Japanese performers to announce it, as seen with Tomo Sakurai (Cynthia's voice actress). But even for a retired voice actor/actress, they'll usually feel obligated to reprise a big role of theirs even if they are officially not taking on work.

    I have never seen a source claiming KAORI. had illness, either. That is commonly assumed from a long absence of work without announcing anything. The biggest clue is that KAORI. was not selected to sing for Ever17's remake, even though she was all over the original soundtrack. Like with voice acting roles, prominent singers are not replaced for remakes or continuations of game works.

    I do think that character comebacks or even just cameos should happen more frequently. One of the main arguments that I've read against that happening is that old characters lack relevance now, but since Kasumi and Takeshi came back twice in the SM saga, I don't think that applies anymore.
