Based on: Several episodes
UK Distributor: Warner Home Video (VHS)
You turn on the telly and Pokémon’s on. You’ve heard
everyone talk about it so you watch to see what the fuss is about. It’s not bad,
basically a 30 minute advert for the games/merchandise but fun and not too
taxing. The animation and drawing aren’t brilliant but then the same can be said
about most kid’s cartoons, the story is basically the main characters find a new
Pokémon and learn about it before they can understand it whilst the ‘hilarious’
enemies that are Team Rocket attempt to stop them. You don’t feel a need to see
it again but one day a few weeks later it’s on and you watch it and you get a
creeping feeling of deja-vu as the same situation as the previous episode is
repeated with different Pokémon…
Best Bit: The occasional bizarre occurrences.
Worst Bit: Anything involving Team Rocket. They are the crappest comedy villains ever created.
