[[4Kids gives up Pokémon license|5 years after]] the company ceased dubbing the Pokémon anime, {{bp|4Kids Entertainment}} has filed for [[wp:Chapter 11, Title 11, United States Code|Chapter 11 bankruptcy]]. 4Kids controlled the English dub of the {{bp|Pokémon anime}} from [[bp:EP001|the first episode]] (1998) through [[bp:Pokémon: Advanced Battle|the eighth season]] (2005).

Fans' views on 4Kids's dubbing of the anime are varied - some prefer the 4Kids dub, some wish it had never happened. No matter which side, the transition was hard for most fans, as [[Fans rally to combat anime change|nearly all voice actors were changed]] (some recently have made a return, [[bp:Ted Lewis|a]] [[bp:Rodger Parsons|few]] reprising previous roles).
