Hi, to both regular visitors and new readers! This is the seventh edition of the Best and Worst of Pokémon. Whether you’re here for nostalgia, a slightly less jaundiced view of the Pokemon cartoon or genuinely think I’m amusing (bless you), I hope you enjoy this enough to come back again next week.

Feedback, be it positive or negative as well as questions or discussion are always appreciated here. So, after you’re done reading, why not leave a comment and 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. You can also just spam this site on your own favourite sites and web forums. I thrive on attention, you see.

I hope you enjoy the second badge battle in three episodes, which is something of a record.

    Wasn’t expecting that Sons of Anarchy reference, and then you go and follow that up with Daria. Well played. I’ll have to YouTube that I guess since it’s not syndicated any more and the DVD set cut out a lot of the music.

    I’m imagining a lucrative black market of poached Staryu cores. Probably ground up and used as aphrodisiacs.

    How anyone could spend that much time paired with Jessie and still be a homosexual I have no idea. No one’s THAT gay, to steal a line from Archer.

    “No, not the vaguely racist Star Trek: The Next Generation episode. Although that would certainly qualify as a worst on some equivalent blog to this.”

    …oh christ, don’t make me do this…

      Oh, the Daria DVDs are worth it even with the music changes. I guess it’s one of the few times when I can understand why they had to do it.

      Maybe James’ heterometer was overloaded by being around her so much.

    re: staryu sequence – it’s so weird what different countries will allow in children’s entertainment, and therein, the lessons kids learn. i guess america opted for heteronormative stereotyping at early ages than diverse love and acceptance :\ not shocking.

    It’s especially strange when you consider that, overall, Japanese societal views towards homosexuality are not particularly more liberal than in the United States.
