Lost interest, but it was still a cute show.
22 August 2006 | by joestank15See all my reviews

A 4. something on IMDb? It was better than that. If everyone's going to diss their childhood, w/e. But I'm not going to act like I didn't like I didn't watch the show and play the games every Saturday. The early episodes were best. Best episodes where the ones involving Charmander (and his forms to come), Primeape, The Cinnabar Island gym match, and the Indigo Plateau finals. Also that one where Ash fights the gym owner that has the Dragonite. The Johto episodes were just too drawn out. I mean, there are like 20 cities inbetweeen EACH gym battle, when they're all so close together in the games. It's ridiculous. And yes, those damn Pokemon were damn cute. By the end Team Rocket was just really annoying. But I just stopped caring near the end of it. They just kept adding to the list of Pokemon. First it was 150, than 250, and the list just kept growing higher and higher.......The games where better by the end of it. But it was still a fine fad, and still good for little kids.
