    I LOVE Pokemon, ever since I was a kid; I was obsessed with Pokemon. For a while I never gave much thought, then I got Pokemon X for Christmas and I was back on the Pokewagon. I actually bought Alpha Sapphire a couple of days ago. But deep down I still have a soft spot for the original 151 Pokemon.

    pokemon brainwashed me- i started reading about this new game pokemon for the gameboy and was new to the concept of anime- completed blue and maxed up my chosen six (raichu(owen)that armodilo thingy(richter) squirtle thingy(dude) a sparrow thingy(..) a nine tails (..) and that buterfly thingy- you can see that despite knowing all 150 at the time i have skillfully forgot most of it. i bought any piece of crap with pokemon on it and recorded every ep of the series. i did tones of fan art in ms paint- one of an embarrassing self portrait 'pokemon style' with my main six which thanks to flimsy floppy only exists in a garish hardcopy that is still well kept to this day. despite the nostalgia i will state that one day i woke up- sat up in bed and at 19 yrs realized wtf and packed it in. then i watched dragonball z....

    Seriously, even Max and May know Misty better than old lady Dawnderhead here, who probably won't know or visit her any time soon. Now even Brock has disappeared! Don't just waste arguements on the new pokemon. It's that stupid Dawn causing the problems. I loved Misty and still love her now. As for Dawn... she diserves a great big punch in the cheeks! DAWN MUST DIE!

    Pokemon was totally my favorite anime WAAAYYY back then, even when i wuz an infant! The original series was raging from cool to OK. The original wuz an anime classic!

    CartoonKing2 Posted 7 years 1 month ago
    Pokemon was good. The voice acting sucked, but that didn't change it, the show was good. And remember I said "was good", not "is good". That's because ever since the advance generation the show got boring, uninteresting, and became more focused on the girl character than Ash. But the first few seasons were great, and I'm a big fan of the Pokemon games.
    funguy10 Posted 7 years 1 month ago
    I just read an interesting article IGN posted about the series. It was only supposed to last a year and a half and for about 90 episodes but it was so popular, they kept it going all these years. After Kanto, Ash did the Orange Islands as anime filler until Gold and Silver were out, then he traveled across Johto. When Ruby and Sapphire came out, he went to Hoenn. Ten he went to the Battle Frontier as filler When Diamond and Pearl came out he went to Sinnoh. And in ever reigon except the filler arcs, he just comes up short and his journey continues. Now the new Black & White series is going to premire based on the Black & White games and it all begins again! And yes, with that we are up to 649 Pokemon!
    rpm61787 Posted 7 years 1 month ago
    If pokemon was real i would leave my girlfriend and never look back. Why would anyone need a gf if you could run around training dragons and crazy birds and shit for the rest of your life.

    I remember seeing a commercial for the red and blue versions of the original games. It came out in November during Christmas shopping season of 1998. I got the red version for Christmas that year. My involvement with Pokemon didn't last long though. I'm a christian, and my mom told me it was demonic somehow, so I gave it up. Although in later years of this show My friends told me some stuff that intrigued me. Like, even though Ash had the right badge, he still couldn't control Charizard. Why is that? My favorite one was Squirtle.

    POKEMON!!! To this day, I still love the games. With the TV show however, the first season is my favorite because it's the one I grew up with. I can bear to watch Johto and Hoenn, but I was upset with some of the changes, such as great characters and Pokemon being ditched. *sigh* I miss Misty and Vulpix (my most favorite Pokemon). D/P is a disaster. A few 4th gen Pokemon are actually cool, but most looked like the artists were drinking when they thought of the designs. They have enough Pokemon right now. If they make more, the new Pokemon are really going to overshadow the original 151.

    My favorite memory from Pokemon was when the closed captioning screwed up dialouge and lyrics. Pikachu was captured and screamed "Cha" as he was apt to do and the CC said "No, stop". Pokemon don't speak english (except Meowth...and Entei). Also on the 2nd intro, the lyric was "I want to take the ultimate step", but the CC said, "I want to take the ultimate SNACK". I thought to myself, "Seriously?" How does the CC screw things up like that. How does ultimate snack even sound correct?

    Kurohitsuji Posted 9 years 7 months ago
    I still play the non-spin-off games. For the Anime I prefered the 1st 2 generations (Would've been better w/o the edits...). It started to fail & get stupid afterwards... Oh well. It'll be here forever, heh-heh-heh.......
    beavistv Posted 9 years 7 months ago
    the show is ok but the games are better red and blue are the best!
    This_guy Posted 9 years 7 months ago
    I used to watch it before I left for high school in the morning. I just thought it was some random anime show, not some phenomenon heading this way from Japan. I eventually caught on to it and bought the games (red, yellow and gold) and a couple packs of cards. I realized that it wouldn't end and stopped being interested in it when they started the Jhoto series.

    After the second movie [my dad fell asleep only three minutes into it & I was bored out of my mind so we left], I hated pokemon [the show]. I still have my cards somewhere, if only I could find them. Anyways, it was amazing when I liked it .
    CartoonNetwork90s Posted 9 years 10 months ago
    I used to love Pokemon, but not anymore. I like the first one. I hate the new ones so much because, they suck.

    Bokura63 Posted 9 years 10 months ago
    i LOVED pokemon back when it first started. it came on right when i got home from school in 2nd grade. cause i got home at exactly 2:30. remember that one episode called "pikachus goodbye"? i sobbed so much during that. Then i honestly think i was the only one crying in the theatre during the first movie when ash got turned to stone. ah..good old 7 year old days.
    Brit_Brat Posted 9 years 10 months ago
    I only play the pokemon games now- once they switched Ash's voice I couldn't take the show anymore! lol

    insaneclaw Posted 9 years 11 months ago
    I only liked the old episodes of pokemon that was awsome but the episodes they banned was just retarded and they should just burn in hell
    Toasty Posted 9 years 11 months ago
    I will forever consider the time when Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow/Green/Gold/Silver the last time when Pokemon was that good. I think all the over-marketing and teens and kids fighting even killed for a few cards is what made Pokemon's grip slip. That and the more new Pokemon that come out every new game, you get tired of them afterwards.
    jeffo872403 Posted 10 years 5 days ago
    If You Look at since the begainning Misty and Ash love each other,if you look at it Misty is always(sometimes) on the defence for ash,also Misty is also defence for Brock.That's coming from me who watching Anime pokemon porn.
    RetroToon Posted 10 years 15 days ago
    So if you look at my older posts here now and you see me talking about how I like the show so much that was when I was still a hardcore fan, but now I really have begun to grow out of it.
    RetroToon Posted 10 years 15 days ago
    I also got off of Pokémon recently cause of D/P but that's because I thought the new Pokémon weren't that great anymore, and if you compare the 4th generation list to the older ones there seems to be less new ones now (maybe they're finally losing ideas).

    Oh and Blue96sky, they're not defenseless if they have powers. XP

    Oh really? Wonder what that looked like.
    Narf Posted 10 years 2 months ago
    I was obsessed with Pokemon when I was little. That, and Powerpuff Girls. I still like it. The games, anyway. They ruined the anime. Ash's wardrobe changes every season and they got rid of Misty. What the heck? Kids who watch the show now don't know what they missed. I think the anime was way better back when there were only 150. I remember that song "What Kind Of Pokemon Are You". The song said 'kick your grass' and I thought it said a swear word in it. Speaking of swearing, the three-year-old boy I babysit calls Ash "the A word". It's so hilarious. XD

    Yoshi7Link Posted 10 years 2 months ago
    I really really loved this show. Well the first few series anyhow - where there were only 150 Pokemon. But in my opinion, they completely destroyed the show by adding in all those new Pokemon and getting rid of Misty. I mean, what the hell? There were 150 Pokemon, without knowing or finding any hint or clue as to any others in existence and then all of a sudden, and whole new Pokemon race appears, that's just nuts! And getting rid of Misty, she was a prominent character, why do that? Everyone could see that she was meant to be with Ash - well when they got older!
    But apart from those two reasons, I really loved the first series!

    Well I'm 21 now & I haven't been into Pokemon for a long time since about mid 2000, but I still have all my cards & I still play the Red & Blue version games every once in a while. I think those games are one of the best games of all time.

    Don't forget the early 00s!
    NickelodeonFan97 Posted 10 years 7 months ago
    This was a great show back in the 90's. It's not as good today, but it's still entertaining.

    And I've always loved the video games.
    agentkev Posted 10 years 7 months ago
    I added five new vids for pokemon.. they are all japanese but very good..hope you enjoy them
    RetroToon Posted 10 years 8 months ago
    True... I'd also like to see Ash grow up myself. All they've changed so far is his clothes, and I know a lot of people made a big deal of that, but new clothes don't change who a person is. And as much as I miss Veronica Taylor's voice, Ash's new voice almost makes him sound more mature like he's finally gotten a bit older. I'm sure someday they'll have the conclusion to all this planned.
    shadowprophet Posted 10 years 8 months ago
    well your right about that. And ashes character has hasnt changed all that much. But still im waiting for the story to evolve, I mean ten years is a lot of time and it doesnt reflect in the show, I wont lie I was an adult when I started watching pokemon, im even older now It doesnt have to change drastically, and the pokemon world wouldnt have to change at all, But isnt it about time ash finely became a pokemon a master? I'd at least like to see that before I die of old age, lol
    RetroToon Posted 10 years 8 months ago
    Well, not exactly. One of the things that kept me watching the show was that it always focused on Ash. Misty may have left and now May is replaced with Dawn, but the story is always about Ash. That "Power Rangers" treatmeant DID stop me from watching any more of Digimon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and of course Power Rangers, but the reason it hasn't for Pok'emon is because they never turn away from their main hero so Ash doesn't suffer the same fate as Tai and Yugi Moto.
    shadowprophet Posted 10 years 8 months ago
    It was 1994 when the original pokemon came out the the game boy in japan, Im pretty sure that the 84 was a typo. It was somewhere around 96 when the cartoon was made I think. anyway, im not a pokemon expert, they have given pokemon the power rangers treatment changeing out the cast every couple seasons.
    It's just a dreadful show anymore.
    agentkev Posted 10 years 8 months ago
    animefan123,..all the voices((well almost)) where changed not just james..
    RetroToon Posted 10 years 8 months ago
    Love the games and loved the anime as well. ^_^

    I found the characters to be appealing, and despite some differences (the Gym Leaders Misty and Brock traveling with Ash with only two members of Team Rocket to deal with) I thought the storyline followed the Game Boy games nicely. And the fact that they keep adding new Pok'emon didn't bother me, cause what would really make Pok'emon repetative is if they DIDN'T. I mean, what's worse... seeing Team Rocket all the time, or seeing the same 150 Pok'emon over and over? By adding new Pok'emon to the games they keep the games interesting, and of course they have to introduce them into the anime as well (even when we had to say goodbye to old characters in the process). The only thing I don't like about the series now is having to get used to those new voices.

    Pok'emon was always my favorite anime and just one of those things I've been obsessed with, and I still like it to this day.

    alex borstein was not ash's mother! It was veronica taylor the same actress who plays ash

    Grandpaladin Posted 10 years 9 months ago
    Ash may seem like an idiot and the animation may seem a little 2nd rate, but that's to an advantage. You see, the first five seasons (the optimum areas to watch) was Ash's quest for humility and maturity not to mention intellect. From the 1st onward, the animation and acting improved, thus Ash improves himself. The only way to completely fulfill his quest was to beat Gary in a league. I seriously doubt Ash would have done that without Heracross, Snorlax, Bayleef, and Charizard.
    90sgirl08 Posted 10 years 10 months ago
    I wish they would have created something for Team Rocket to do besides get tossed out to the moon by Pikachu and Ash's pokemon.

    I miss when everyone was into everything about Pokemon. I still have all of the trading cards in one of the drawers of my dresser. I still play the Red & Blue version games constantly & I am almost 21 years old! Those games are one of the best games ever created "PERIOD"! Even for people that aren't into Pokemon anymore. I still even have Pokemon Stadium for N64. I was into Pokemon for about a year from summer 1999-2000. My first holographic card was a Charizard & nobody I knew had one then. I never traded it until somebody else got one.
    verno Posted 10 years 11 months ago

    RetroShooz Posted 10 years 11 months ago
    This Show Definately Sold out a few years after it came out. I cant even count how many Trading Card Series they have. They should have stuck with the original 150 Pokemon + Mew & Mewto.

    Well I personally think that pokemon is a lot better than power rangers because pokemon didnt have the bad guys running around in suits...
    Celeste Posted 11 years 16 days ago
    The only thing about this show that I don't like is that it's become all about how many times Team Rocket can blast off per episode. Where as in the begining it was all about the Pokemon.

    Man, I was all about Pokemon when I was 11. I had the cards, video games, and countless toys. I'm 18 now and I'm not much into it anymore, but I kept most of the toys. I think the new series is kind of gay, so I only like the first season. I still have a soft spot for Pikachu and James. I agree with the very first poster that Team Rocket was the best. I always thought Ash was kind of a pansey.

    I didn't like this show as much as I liked the video games, but since I'm a big fan of Nintendo, I wouldn't really say that I hate pokemon. I like to play the video game and watch some episodes of this show (though the old school pokemon is so much better). I will always like Pokemon no matter what.

    When I was 10 this(and NSYNC, but that's a different story) was my life. I got out of it shortly after they added the new Pokemon, though. It's a shame I still remember the theme song, and the thing Jesse and James said.
    St. Jimmy Posted 11 years 8 months ago
    It's amazing how you were addicted to this show when it first started when you were young, but then you get older and you realize "My god, this is the stupidest shit i've ever seen in my life." I'll admit, I was one of the many kids who's life revolved around Pokemon,I had tons of the games, toys, clothes, books, videos, cd's, I even still have my card collection in my attic. One christmas I got nothing but Pokemon stuff, except for a Hess truck. I told you I was addicted.
    BabyCharmander Posted 11 years 8 months ago
    I wish you "Poke-haters" would realize that Pokemon is about the games, not the show. The mainstream games (Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, LeafGreen, and (in a year or so) Diamond and Pearl) are the heart of the whole Pokemon phenomenon, NOT the anime, and NOT the cards. ¬¬
    pizzaguy Posted 11 years 8 months ago
    I hated this show because I knew this annoying kid who kept saying "Pokemon are real, I saw a Diglet on the way to school." And then I would tell him they weren't real and he'd go ask his dad, "Hey Dad, aren't Pokemon real?" And his dad would say "Why, yes they are son." It was so annoying.
    Jake 1079 Posted 11 years 9 months ago
    it took me quite a while before aculy playing tha games to.I remember every one in grade school talking about it and I was just like ? about the whole thing.the very first pokemon game I got was ruby version and for the next 5 mounths it was a blast.then after getting a game shark all the fun just slipped away.and even after starting a new game I just couldnt stop yousing that device.and even today I'm still not very big on the pokemon tell you the trouth there are many games I've played that for me are more amussing then pokemon.
    Jake 1079 Posted 11 years 9 months ago
    well after about 8 years this show has really started to get on my was neat at first but its still just the same team rocket trying to steal pickachu and always failing think they could have tryd something new once in a while like replaceing the main characters villions and pokemon for a new cast to freshion up the story(like pokemon chronicles for example).
    BabyCharmander Posted 11 years 9 months ago
    Heh... I'm one of the few folks who liked Pokemon not because of the fad, but simply because it was an awesome game. It was the games that caught my attention first--not the fad.

    I loved this show when I was younger (around 10 or 11). I kept watching it for a few years but gave up on it not because it got "stupid", but because Kids WB made the stupid decision to show the eps out of order for no reason. I couldn't follow it after that (around the beginning of the Johto season), and gave up.

    I still play the games, though. I can't wait for Mysterious Dungeon.

    Oh, and to the person who said that the people who made this were on drugs... not true. If I recall correctly, the person who made it got the idea from when he was little and went on adventures in forests collecting bugs.

    And to those who say that the show is "gay" meaning "stupid" (although it is "gay" if you mean "happy" ), grow up. The same goes for you that say that the show and games aren't violent enough. Really. Grow up.
    mr.funky Posted 11 years 10 months ago
    each season gets crappier and crappier...
    its like they ran outta ideas for new pokemon, like they just took pikachu and made different looking copies of him...
    I must say though...MewTwo was the coolest pokemon EVER!!

    I remember it first aired on Fox kids durring spring break. I was in 7th grade, and since i was out of school and had no plans i watched it from the begining all that break. Then when I went back to school, everyone else had watched it too, and were all talking about it XD
    Rhimmer Posted 12 years 6 days ago
    I remember waking up early every weekday before 7 am to watch this show on UPN. Then it stopped at the end of season 1 and then Cartoon Network got it and stoped showing it around season 2. Now WB has it.

    BlueMario Posted 12 years 2 months ago

    some guy told me about misty dress-up game on newgrounds. people are just wierd, ya know. it's so ridiculous that lots of guys have stupid crushes on misty! lol
    ganon Posted 12 years 2 months ago
    Well you posted that she's hot! NOT!
    ganon Posted 12 years 2 months ago
    I just laughed when James inflated his fake boobs and he starts teasing Misty and says "Wait till you're older so you will have these. Then come back and compete!" HILARIOUS! LOL! But why the HECK do all you guys (including benjamillion, the guy who posted about the banned episodes) think that stupid flat-chested girl is hot?! That's just weird....

    Is this show really ending in 2007?
    ganon Posted 12 years 2 months ago

    90sKid Posted 12 years 2 months ago
    my friend got me hooked on this show. it was awesome and i saw the first 3 movies. pikachu is still my favorite
    Units1019 Posted 12 years 2 months ago
    Love the games and the first intro to the show has one of the most kick a$$ themes ever. It really captures the spirit of what Pokemon is about. I am a pokefanatic by the way
    ganon Posted 12 years 2 months ago
    Nobody wants to laugh at my comments.;_;

    Fine, I'll laugh at the comments that will make you cry!

    ganon Posted 12 years 3 months ago
    Oh, and by the way, Misty gave ninja monkey his third wet dream! lol
    ganon Posted 12 years 3 months ago
    Next year, ther'll be a new season which is about the adventures of Misty, Gary, and Tracy back in kanto. Sorry, but ash has to be replaced, too, just like when burger king fired kid vid and replaced him with these little monster thingies. lol
    Sheik Posted 12 years 3 months ago
    First season: classic.
    ganon Posted 12 years 3 months ago
    I like it better than ever, man! Just 150 of them, BO-ring! More than 200 new Pokemon later (300 next year)it's better than ever! The only downside is that there's no blood!

    mrs. link: I forgot his name, but he's that freaky weirdo from Naruto whose twin lives within him (I found that one the most disturbing out of the group). They are servants, pretty much, of Orochimaru (that's the mark they got from Orochimaru) and were on a mission to fetch Sasuke from Konoha.

    I think they appear in like the 120s ep wise, or something. I can't really remember, and it's been a long time since I've watched those particular eps. I know I did like the fact that Shikamaru was pretty much in charge when it came to that mission...and I think I'll shut up now because I may end up spoiling it for you. I'm not sure if you've seen any of those eps yet. Posted 12 years 3 months ago
    once again shadow mist, who si ur avatar?
    she-ra21 Posted 12 years 3 months ago
    I liked the first 4 or 5 seasons of this. Now I really don't care.
    Shadow Mist Posted 12 years 3 months ago
    I used to watch this all the time when I was a kid and I was completely obsessed. But now I am more mature and to me it seems so childish. The new episodes are getting old and this fandom is slowly but surely fading away...
    SSJ Jup81 Posted 12 years 4 months ago
    Ironically, I'm listening to the song now. I simply love it! It's pretty much the first original-themed song I ever heard. Sang by Matsumoto Rika, who voices Satoshi (Ash) for the original version, so if you're curious what Ash sounds like for the origina (it's him in the beginning of the intro saying, "Pokemon, Getto daze!!").

    Nope, I'm not Japanese and nope, I've never even been to Japan, though I'd like to visit someday. I might next year.

    I was a fanatic of this show and I used to go to a Pokemon message board. They had the original opening up. I saw it, and liked it. I saw the other intros/endings too which are also cute/nice. Now for teh newer Poke-seasons, I don't know anything about those, 'cept for the very first Pokemon Advanced Generation opening, but I didn't like the song much.

    The second intro for the reg series is Raibaru (Rival), a great opening sequence, imo. The song complements the sequence very well. Matsumoto Rika sings this too.

    Intro 3 is OK!. I prefer this to that boring old "Pokemon Johto" crap that we got. I actually prefer the movie-version of this song to the TV version.

    Intro 4 is Mezase Pokemon Masutaa, only it's done by a group called Whiteberry (just recently broke up since they graduated school, to my knowledge). Nice song, but I prefer the karaoke cause I don't like how they sing.

    Intro 5 is Ready Go! This is a nice one too.

    Yep, I've grown very nostalgic from posting all this here. *Listens to Raibaru now* lol

    Oh, I also listen to Japanese music a lot. Not just anime-based stuff, but mostly stuff by certain artists/groups (Do As Infinty, Namie Amuro, Akino Arai, MOVE, Gackt etc) Posted 12 years 4 months ago
    hey ssj jup81, are you like japanese, or did you like used to live in japan, cuz u seem to know how to say alot of japanese stuff and you know the original opening to this. I had never even seen it before in my life.
    SSJ Jup81 Posted 12 years 4 months ago
    Ooo, the first original opening! Mezase Pokemon Masutaa!! I haven't seen that in years!! Man, I'm growing all nostalgic and missing season 1 of Pokemon now. lol

    Wish I had all of the origianl first season on tape or something with subtitles.
    SSJ Jup81 Posted 12 years 4 months ago
    I used to love Pokemon...but after we lost the station here that aired it, I lost interest in it show wise. I used to like the games too, but it's gotten too redundant and it's annoying how you can see something that you think it's a plant-type, when in reality, it's a fire-type or something. The set up is still the same too, which is another reason why I'm "bored" with it.

    Every once in a while, I may hear about an ep I may actually want to see (ep 147 of Pokemon Advanced Generation comes to mind; it's all about James and his actually having to go back to his estate), but it's not like I will.

    Oh, and Ash will never "catch 'em all". That was made up for the English version anyway. That phrase doesn't exist in the original. Posted 12 years 4 months ago
    plecotomus, you hit the nail on the head. About everything. The cards, the games, the shows.
    Plecostomus Posted 12 years 4 months ago
    I loved the Game Boy game when it came out. The collecting and training of MULTIPLE characters, and in some cases, in replica. Even better, when MISSING NO. was discovered. Heck yah! I caught a level 150 bulbasaur and a level 30 garbled piece of crap that kicked ass! Missing No kinda sucked. He had 2 flying attacks and almost no health...
    But the show! The show and the cards were kind of togeather. They both were... fun... but there were certain points that made them unbearable. WHY DID THE MONSTERS KEEP RECITING THEIR FRICK'N NAME!!!! "Mr. Mime!" BY THE GODS! I could only watch the show twice. After that, it just got too unbearable. The cards' graphics just sucked. There was maybe only four worth while drawings, the rest, a bunch of waste. I played for about two months before I realized how much money I was wasting! A hint to anyone still playing the card game, Magic the Gathering is so much cooler.
    devin_b Posted 12 years 4 months ago
    I doubt that part will ever be shown. The show will probably be taken off the air before then. I have heard that next season Ash returns to Kanto to go through the Battle Frontier like in the Emerald game, only that was in the Hoenn region, not Kanto. There are also episodes that never aired, and not because they were banned. There's no actual reason for it as far as I know but these episodes aired in Japan and the UK. Posted 12 years 4 months ago
    also another question:does anyone know if ash really did ever become the pokemon master and catch them all? Posted 12 years 5 months ago
    and i agree with the dude who said the japs do veerrrrry heavy drugs...very heavy. man watching the beginning theme really took me back like nothing else has....hehe my brother and i brings a tear to my eye thinking ill never be able to go back to see it all over again, just keep on going forward with life..... Posted 12 years 5 months ago
    will someone pleez answer my question if they can. What was the difference between the jap and american version. Or even better, what was the manga like?!
    DieYuppieScum Posted 12 years 5 months ago
    One of the most over marketed, competely annoying ,mindless dribble that has ever molded itself in to a cartoon, videogame,toys, Cards and any other thing you can think of.... I think they beat Power Rangers for the amount of useless crap manufactured bearing the Pokemon name, but Iam not certain. Posted 12 years 5 months ago
    welllllllllll does anyone know what the jap version of pokemon was like?? was it more voilent or the same? i mean c'mon with all the pokemon fightin and crap there should be a little blood shed and cursing. I was soooo suckered into this as a kid and ever since they started adding all the new pokemon i was like okkkkkk byebye. I never understood the card game but my older brother did and one time we got my mom to bye us like a $100 card (charizard) and was all cool and crap. Ohh lol i remember one time for christmas we both got booster packs in our stockings and (well several actually) one of them was french and i got like a first edition blastiose holographic. he was soooo pissed lol. He traded me like half his cards for it. Now we got like these uber good cards somewhere (like millions of them all holographics and i dont know where they r.but we are gonna sell them if anyone still wants them that is. But onto subject. And when they started adding these new characters and taking ones off and changing ash's clothes i got pissed and pretty much stopped watching it. And now everyone is like into yugioh cuz that show is that SH**!!!BUT WHEN ITS ON AND I HAVE NOTHING TO DO I WATCH IT. oops. and its a good thing im not epilitic or else id be screwed watching this show. soo yeah all in all this show started off with a bright future but they screwed in the end. pokemon, u entertained us well .
    Phantasmagoria_3D Posted 12 years 6 months ago
    The show was good for its time when the Poke'mon craze was HUGE!! The game's were especially good, though when compared to today's standards, they just don't stand out as well anymore. As for the characters: Ash wasn't much of a hero, Misty was quite annoying (then again, what anime girl other than Melfina from "Outlaw Star" isn't?), and Brock was pretty cool, though kind of an idiot sometimes! For some reason when I was younger (in about the seventh grade) I used to have the HOTS for Nurse Joy! Anyways, a pretty good cartoon program for kids. I'm 20 now, BTW.
    devin_b Posted 12 years 7 months ago
    It really isn't as good as it use to be, especially with Misty gone. About the only decent thing going now is with the new enemies Team Magma and Team Aqua. They take their job more seriously and succeed half the time, unlike Team Rocket.
