    General Pokemon Discussion Thread


    Come here to talk about the anime, manga, games, specials, anything related to the world of pokemon.

    I've been a fan of the anime for the last 10 years and the game for the past 8-9 years. The anime series has gone through lots of up and downs but throughout all that, I've come to enjoy the series, so feel free to discuss the series (what you like or hate about this series).

    I have to admit. I was indeed addicted to Pokemon. I had the official Handbook and all the little figures and everything. (btw, i still do) and i would sing that crappy theme song every time it came on. I would record all the episodes. And everytime it would say "who's that pokemon?!" I would always be guessing out-loud waiting for the commercials to be over. heh. then I got plain pissed off at the show after the 2nd movie. Misty left...never got her bike back...ash never became a pokemon master....they kept coming out with more pokemon...I kept running out of money. So I was all like "screw it. this is dumb" So to this day forward, I really REALLY dis-like pokemon. Although every now and then I'll watch some of the old episodes...heheh T.T

    Yeah, the good old days. Why couldn't they just end the series and get on with their lives instead of making more and more of those annoying pokemon.

    I was obsessed, now I'm just ok with it.

    It's really only the games I play. The show pisses me off.

    I agree completely about the fact that it got cheesier as it progressed. Once there were more than 150 I got disallusioned with it... >.<

    I never really felt an incredible urge to get up early to watch it, I was like that with Megaman though. 6 a.m. every weekend just to see it! ;) :D :rolleyes:

  9. I's say the storyline didn't get cheesier, but you guys started growing up instead.

    I was addicted to the game. Pokemon Gold killed my sleep cycle. I played it all night, every night. I think I only slept at most 4 hours a day in those days.

    Yeah, I miss the old episodes. I still like em if I watch em and I still find the new episodes incredibly cheesy. Everything was still fresh in the first series, and not everyone was friends. If Ash tried to make Pikachu do something he didn't want to, he'd get shocked. Misty and Brock teased Ash and Misty beat them both up on a regular basis, although mainly Ash. The first series was great, it was interesting, funny and original, then they made more than 150 pokemon, Charmander evolved and Togepi was introduced.

    I admit it, when the show first came out I thought those Pokemon were the most adorable things on the face of the planet. I think the show was kind of cheesy to begin with, but it just got extremely mind-numbingly repetitive. How many times can one hear the same Team Rocket motto over and over before going insane?

    Of course I was addicted! I had a lot of Pokemon cards and those Japanese "Pokemon Vacation" sets that came with 3 cards and a postcard. I also remember when it first came out on UPN with the St. Anne episode ... dang, I miss that show.

    I don't have anything to hide, I still watch pokemon. The show does get kind of repetitive, but there's something about it that keeps drawing me back. I'm also wtaching the new season. And yes I still play and buy the games as well. I think there are people who watched it as just a fad, but the show has some appealing qualities, and I'm thinking geesh "when will ketchum finnally win at all" and the sad part is that he may never will.

    OMG... in grade 6 I used to go to school 1/2 an hour away from my house, and I used to rush home all the time just to watch pokemon. I practically begged for all of the GBC games... >_<' What a waste all of it was.

    I did watch quite a few episodes back in its heyday (when I was in 7th grade). Fortunately even then I had an eye for crappy dubs, therefore I stuck mainly to playing the Game Boy game.

    I didn't get up to watch it, I just taped it with the VCR timer...that was 6, 7 years ago.

    They're still cute, but some of those newer ones seem to be getting uglier...and the episodes became all pretty much fillers...

    Pokemon seizure incident

    Some people may remember it, but some time in 1997, an episode of pokemon aired and caused about 700 people to have convulsions and such. It was banned on tv. and all pokemon products were taken down from stores. I've seen it, yet it had no effect on me whatsoever :blink . Has anyone else seen it? and do u have any clue where the epsiode can be bought? I must have it!!!!

    I was always wondering how that episode gave people seizures. I was tempted to download it once, but thought I might get a seizure... Actually, I was doubtful but I didn't want to take the risk.

    But it's just the colors blue and red alternating, how can that cause seizures?
