Suede’s Pokemon Journey Ep. 03: Ash catches a Pokemon

The titlecard LIES! But this episode is awesome!

About Suede


  1. great episode review again. two thumbs up

    ps first

  2. Wait, 3? What happened to 2? Posted last week? Where was I?

    Must have been in my cave.

  3. I love how the Pokemon in this series actually did have their own unique personalities and goals that they talked about with eachother at certain points. Not saying it’s anything ground-breaking, but compare this to the newer series where everything is just sort-of Ash’s new loyal cute companion who blindly follows orders and it’s a pretty huge downgrade. There are the occasional exceptions like I think a few seasons ago or something there was a Buneary who was into Pikachu??? But yeah, it never felt as good as with episodes like this where the show’s free to just stop for a moment and treat the new Pokemon as actual characters and I wish we got more moments like that in general.

  4. quick question: Will you also be reviewing the episodes that were banned in season 1?

  5. I don’t know why but I busted a gut at “That don’t make no sense!”

  6. Have any of you read the Pokémon Adventures manga?

  7. The title isn’t a lie, it told a half truth which is different. He caught a Pokemon and then he caught another. Titles are under no obligation to tell the full story.In fact, they really shouldn’t.

  8. Dear Suede,

    This wouldn’t come into play for a long time, unless potentially you wanted to do an individual episode on Ash being a highlander. But I was wondering what you thought of the following idea: That the original incarnation of the anime we all watched and you are reviewing should have ended at episode 112. I know I probably seem like some crabby, 90’s nostalgia purist. But I contend that Ash’s victory in the Orange League, a leauge in structure almost exactly like the games, and a story arc where Ash really grows as a trainer, represents a glorious and fitting way to end his story.

    Anyway, thats just the thoughts of…some crabby, 90’s nostalgia purist ;).
