The best version!
2 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

Too bad they did not release the Subtitled version of Pocket Monster (aka.Pok&eacutemon)in North America,because this is WAAAAAAAY better than the corny re-edit that is played on Saturday morning Television.

Sure the animation maybe a little crud(except the cute critters),but the cute story about raising monsters like children and interesting plot twists make this one well worth it.
