Boom, boom. Here we are with the 11th edition of the Best and Worst of Pokémon, the weekly blog where an episode of the cartoon gets dissected and then a bunch of pop culture references are added for no reason. I’m sure you’ll just love it.
This episode is Charmander – The Stray Pokémon and is the second of the “Ash gets the Kanto starters” trilogy. It’s one of the more memorable episodes because it directly tackles the issue of Charmander possibly dying. Not fainting, or being knocked out, or being sent to another dimension where he’ll have to traverse Snake Way and avoid the Home For Infinite Losers but actual death.
