Happy Birthday Suede.

Really enjoying this segment so far, Suede. I too grew up with Pokemon being my prime introduction to anime, but I’ve recently fallen into the highly underpopulated fan camp that thinks the first season is just “okay” rather than “the very best that no one ever was”. I’m looking forward to reviewing the series with your more professional yet comedic commentary. Happy Birthday.

It’s a pretty good thing Ash in an idiot in the first few episodes. He asks the questions about the world WE ask, like how Pokeballs work, or how the type system works, The only problems I have with him come MUCH, MUCH later, and are a natural issue with a show keeping the same main character for almost 20 years (although XY is really good).

This is such a nostalgia trip, seeing this show from the very beginning.

Great first episode, looking forward to more! You make a great point about Ash being an everyman protagonist. That really is refreshing. And while it’s true that later seasons would up his quotient of specialness, It can be argued that he actually earned those special attributes. It’s not apparent in the Kanto season, but over time Ash really does grow and excel to a greater level than he previously was at. And as he hits his stride as a truly great trainer, he saves god’s life (In the distant past) which has GOT to be good for your Karma And… Read more »

Maybe that’s why Ho-oh appeared to him in the first episode.

My only gripe is that it’s not the entire Indigo League. But otherwise I’m excited! Happy birthday!

Well, time for some random pokemon rambling πŸ˜€ Begin with “not discuses” aspects of Pokemon: 1) Pokemon aren’t animals. That wasn’t never clearly explained but it is quite possible that Pokemon’s are sentient and like to fight and in fact quite potbelly dislike being wild. Though there are some large difference here between different incarnations of franchise.. 2) Yup. They could make series more like a saga but at one point they decide that Ash is perfect lead so it stay that way. Anime-logic. 3) It is officially confirmed that Anima and Games are the separated universes with different rules.… Read more »

My only major gripe about english dubbed season 1 is that they change things like dialog and names of food items. Then again what japanese show that 4kids had got they hands on had not been bastardized.

Yay! Suede returns to pokemon! I love the pokemon videos you do; they’re just filled with such wonder that the shows had.

Liking this already, would you consider a Yu-Gi-Oh! one afterwards?

I get the impression from this he didn’t like it much .

I can’t wait to see the rest of this series. Ash really is the ultimate underdogs for kids isn’t he?

That was a pretty brilliant review. Can’t wait for the next one.

I think Ash is a pretty standard type of hero, determined to succeed to the point of fool hardiness, fired up with ideals and dreams and sure of his ability to achieve them to the point of arrogance, passionate but a bit dense. These are really common traits for heroes in and out of anime, to me Ash resembles any number of heroes like Naruto or some of the kids from various incarnations of Digimon in personality and often characters in an action movie. While other heroes may be more special in their way they still often have ambitions that… Read more »

I forgot how much trolling there was in the first episode . Oak was kind of a jerk for messing with him like that.

Mmh. Sigh… I remember the feelings I felt watching the first season, a long time ago. More than 15 years, now.

And also, the great bitterness from the last episode of the first season… what most probably prevented me from becoming an hardcore fan, and eventually led me to become mostly disinterested in the ‘series’ (though I still watch, here and there, some newer episodes), around mid-Season 2.
But, details are for in 51 days now. 51 days, until the accursed time.

From the episodes I have seen, I had liked the first one the most. I had never seen a show be so harsh to their protagonist before, it was really refreshing.

For a long time I misheard “You’re my best friend” as ‘Your mothers friend.” making really confused.
