Some would say she's the very best
Sarah Natochenny has played the part of Ash Ketchum for the majority of the Pokémon anime’s run, but she’s not the first to take on the English role. That honor goes to Veronica Taylor, who lent her talents to Ash in the first 8 seasons of the anime.
While Taylor has long since moved on from voicing Ash, she’s still deeply tied to the character and the franchise. As such, Taylor has commented on the major victory Ash just scored in the anime. You can see Taylor’s full comments on the big moment in the tweet below.
