Starting with the 2003 premiere of Sonic X, Pollock plays the roles of Doctor Eggman (Ivo Robotnik), Professor Gerald and Eggman Nega. This is because Sega decided to make the voices in the anime and games match, removing all of their previous actors. (It's a common misconception that the reason for this was that the death of Deem Bristow led to this decision, when in actuality, it was already decided by the time he died) Unlike several 4Kids voice actors, which have often received negative reaction from fans and critics alike, Mike Pollock has received positive reviews, and has been deemed as a worthy successor to Deem Bristow. On July 15, 2010, it was announced that Sega will be changing the voice actors for the Sonic the Hedgehog characters; however, it was also announced that Pollock will continue to voice Dr. Eggman.[1]
