This is the Best and Worst of Pokémon, episode 15. Every Monday, we get to recap an episode of the Pokémon cartoon and point out the good and bad parts and then make stupid half-jokes about it. It’s a lot of fun, I promise.

This episode is Battle Aboard the St. Anne and starts off the Ash and company get shipwrecked trilogy that ends with giant robot Pokémon, so that’s something. If you want to watch it, before, during or after the recap to wallow in your nostalgia, then here’s a link to a video of this episode.

Once you’re done reading this recap, please leave me a comment. You can press some, or all, of those cool little buttons on the bottom of the article to like, retweet and upvote this article. If you don’t have time to leave a comment, at least press the buttons. It only takes a second and it really helps me out a lot, thanks.

Well, let’s get started and let me if you enjoy it.

    i didn’t know this was the first episode either – interesting move, if most likely unnecessary.

    i’m interested to know how ‘nintendo’s puritanical nature’ affected the original translation of the next episode. as i recall, brock had once heard ‘a story about a man called noah’ that inspires them to send pidgeotto to look for land. there’s your homework for next week.

      Oh, that’s definitely getting one of my paragraphs where I just talk about Japanese culture and make no jokes and everyone skips to the next Best/Worst.

    I totally forgot that Team Rocket had a vaguely-imposing Shadowy Figure of their very own. I wonder where he places in the greater pantheon of Shadowy Figures; above Inspector Gadget’s Claw and Star Trek’s “Future Guy”, but below the WWE “Board of Directors”?

    Southern Gentleman = the current head of the Maximillian Knights. Fred got it on with someone, obviously.

    Also, your choice of image for Worst: I Miss My Butterfree can be totally misinterpreted. By me, anyway. I guess they don’t mind Pikachu watching.

    Oh man, I was really beginning to enjoy reading these and it ends so abruptly. And with that comment promising more soon almost a month old with nothing new, is this the end of this? I sure hope not
