Ed Paul (also known as Ted Lewis) is one of the original Pokémon voice actors. He was the original voice of James, playing the character for seven episodes before passing the torch to Eric Stuart. He would later play many episodic characters, a few minor characters such as Flint and Eusine (though later passed onto Eric Stuart and Dan Green, respectively) and major recurring roles such as Giovanni and Tracey Sketchit. Additionally, he is the go-to battle announcer voice, appearing in every major Pokemon league and competition during the 4Kids era as well as the Pokémon Stadium titles released for the Nintendo 64 game system.

While he had played at least one new role following TPCi's acquisition of the anime license he could not reprise his previous characters. During Season 11, however, he was successfully able to take the role of Giovanni back from Craig Blair, his replacement (and presumably Tracey in the event he were to show up again), making him the first 4Kids actor to reprise a role that was previously theirs.

Other work he has been noted for is Bakura in the original Yu-Gi-Oh!, Zangulus in Slayers, King Dedede in Kirby Right Back At Ya! and recently Jack Atlas in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's.
