Japanese voice actor for Professor Oak passes away

We're sad to report that Ishizuka Unshou, the Japanese voice actor for Professor Oak in the Pokemon anime, has passed away. Unshou was 67 years, and passed away due to complications with esophagus cancer. Unshou was indeed receiving treatment for his cancer, but it wasn't enough to overcome the disease.

Our condolences to all those impacted by the passing of Mr. Unshou.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the information.

Nothing will ever top Joseph Joestar's engrish Oh My Gods. RIP

What a sad day for a Pokemon fan. May he rest in peace.
