Since Pikachu now says its name in the mainline games, do you think gamefreak will start using the anime cries in gen 7?
The anime uses the pokemon's name as their cry:
The games went for animal-like screeches:
Pikachu being the mascot, now uniquely says its name instead of the screech in the latest games.
Honestly, no. There's way too many of them at that point, by Gen VII there will be 800+ pokemon, they're not going to bother going through and recording that many lines when there's nothing wrong with the vast majority of cries.
Hell, the only reason they bothered with Pikachu is because he's the mascot and his name is Pikachu worldwide. Bulbasaur alone has several different names depending on the language, it would be an embarrassingly expensive waste of time.

>Converted the Gameboy Pokemon cries to suit the N64 sound chip
Loved this shit. Did they ever do it again in later games?
Almost all Pokemon have appeared in the anime and have talked (few exceptions), they would just need to take those sound files plus record those missing also the anime is dubbed in those languages. It is plausible but depends on Game Freak
