  • Nifty… Never watched all of the original pokemon anime. Maybe this would be a good place to jump in

    • CEObrainz

      This is different from the main series and it’s 100% better because of that. Hopefully the show is more accessible for older audiences as well as kids, I mean Red from the games/manga was one Bad-ass character.

    • Ducked

      Neither have I, I’ve never watched or played a pokemon game. Slap me right now.

      • *slaps Ducked* Ouch!

    I’m never too fond of video game related shows, but It reminds me of being little and waiting for Pokemon to come on, then our Dad came home with a sack full of Pokmeon episodes on VHS.

    • Ducked

      Ah VHS, when life was simple.

      • Sdudyoy

        Yeah I still use VHS’s, of course our DVD player get’s more attention we still have all our classic Disney movies on VHS.

        • Ducked

          Same here, Disney DVD’s are expensive.

  • I love the fact it’s based on Red.. Red tamed a F**cking Charizard. Ash just gets burnt by his ._. This is definitely going on my ‘List of anime to watch.’

    • Yen

      Clearly someone didn’t watch enough of the anime. Pretty sure Ash tamed his.

      • Actually Ash didn’t really do it by himself, His charizard almost died because he was frozen solid, ash spent a lot of time to warm him up until his hands where numb and cut to pieces by it’s scales, after that Charizard got tamed. I believe it was something like that 🙂 Nonetheless one of the best episodes of the anime.

        Edit: I’m sorry I forgot the Sarcasm tag. Took him a while though to gain the thrust of his Charrizard.

        • Yen

          I don’t really see how that’s not doing it himself though. Charizard trusted him after seeing all the effort Ash put in to nurse him and remembered when Ash saved him as a Charmander. Misty and Brock only supported Ash doing that, I guess you can count the guy that froze him?
