In more detail, Jamie Davyous Owens, the voice of Officer Jenny, said in her blog (back in April 25, 2006): "Well, I've finally received notice that 4Kids will no longer be recording Pokemon. I don't know if that means they will be recasting completely, but I do know I am contracted so that I cannot do a Pokemon voice outside of 4Kids for at least two years from the end of the contract- so I won't be Officer Jenny in future episodes." Her website (which has the blog):

In other words, Pokemon USA can't hire the voice actors because 4Kids is not allowing Pokemon USA to hire the voice actors due to the contract.
You got to be kidding me?! TWO YEARS?! Sheesh, just scratch a chalkboard by my ear then, this is going to be a disaster! I thought enduring 6 years of misery watching my NFL team do poorly, but Pokemon be lucky to even last if PUSA don't get the renewal for 2007-2008 because POkemon ratings will take a big dive. That's not right to have my precious Jenny sound like Mike SEaver meeting the pretty girl with the bad voice! Poor JEnny and JOy, just sad now!

I am feeling like Brock now. Must go in my corner and sulk.
Looks like Pokemon on CN will be 'memories' to hear HOenn's 8 and 9th season.
