Welcome, and welcome back to any repeat readers! This is the sixth edition of the Best and Worst of Pokémon. I take an episode of Pokémon and note the good parts, the bad parts as well as anything else that catches my eye or brings back memories.

Before I beg you to leave a comment, I’d like to thank all of you who DID leave a comment on last week’s episode. I know six comments doesn’t seem like a lot but it sure impresses me. So, after you’re done reading, why not leave a comment again or if you’d be so kind, you can like this, tweet it and upvote it via those handy buttons at the bottom of the article. Let’s face it, attention is nice.

More thanks go to blog non-commentator ard for the new banner seeing as I didn’t feel like changing the 10 second one I made myself.

I hope you enjoy the longest episode recap yet (I’m still not sure how it happened).

    A few stray observations…

    You know too much about rhymes.

    I never noticed this before, but Team Rocket is totally the Japanese analogue to Cobra Commander. Right? It feels like they’re cribbing from the same playbook.

    For some reason I always thought Brock was older, but I guess 15 still makes him the elder statesman on this show.

    We never did find out for sure if Evil Arturo made that slide instead of Real Arturo, did we?

    Seymour: the true founder of Heaven’s Gate.

    I had an “adolescent giant, rock-hard snake thing” for Jesse when I was a kid. That might be why I love thigh-highs so much. Pokémon was truly a formative experience.

      I think it’s just hard to mature “bubblegum cute” without losing something that made the original form so popular.

    after misty’s ‘not so fast, meowth’, i’d love staryu to spend 30 seconds rising to the surface, doing flips and posing and shit, only to find misty and seymour in a bloody pile with meowth smugly nibbling on a severed ear. but maybe that’s just me.

    and you could probably end the majority of these recaps with ‘and then ash gets a gym badge for no reason’.
