“Melanie, I…”

Hi, everybody. This is the tenth edition of the Best and Worst of Pokémon. Thus, this is the 70th day since I’ve started to write about the Pokémon cartoon. Hopefully, this is the first of many days where you’ll be reading it.

This episode is Bulbasaur and the Hidden Village and begins a trilogy of episodes in which Ash serendipitously acquires the three Kanto stater Pokémon, in order of Pokédex number even. This act would, of course, make many young Game Boy players incredibly envious of Ash until Pokémon Yellow came about.

Actually, I, being a dork, didn’t suffer from this envy as I purchased a second-hand copy of Pokémon Blue and using a friend’s Game Boy, kept starting a new game and trading the starters I didn’t have to my Red file. Having disposable starters on hand made for some good trades, I can tell you.

All you cool people reading this, after you’re done reading, why not leave a comment? You can also like this, tweet it and upvote it via those handy buttons at the bottom of the article. Pressing the buttons only takes a split-second and really helps me out so at least do that.

I hope you enjoy this weeks article and, oh look, it’s totally not a link to a video of this very episode.

    was that a Fievel reference!? <3

    you know, i honestly never realized there was a 10-character name limit (though that totally makes sense). with all the weird-ass names, i just assumed that somewhere along the line, someone through Feraligatr was clever.

    i'm starting to get the impression that you somehow dislike tracey sketchit :\

      It was either going to be Fievel or Maus and I went with the slightly cheerier option.

      I haven’t watched the Orange Island stuff in years so I’m actually wondering if after 10 or so years my opinion on Tracey Sketchit will have changed. We’ll find out in about a year and a half.

    “Look, the thing is, no matter what happens after the fact, almost no Pokémon wants to be captured. That’s why you beat them up until they curl up in a fetal position and then steal them away from their lives, friends and family in the wild.” = The cold, hard truth about Pokemon.

      There’s only room for one shitty website around here, so I’ve removed all the spam links forcing you suckers to remain here for all eternity.
