The opinion of a longtime fan
2 July 2008 | by (..) – See all my reviews

Okay, I'm a Pokemon fan. I'm not going to sit here and deny it. Yes, it is quite a "kiddy" show. But I WAS just a kid when I first got into it, which was around nine years ago. I played all of the games that were out at that time, and watched this show religiously. I was a devoted fan to both the show and the games for around three years. Then I sort of grew tired of it and lost interest. Just recently I came across the Sapphire game I'd gotten a few years back and played it a while and realised how much I loved the games. It really took me back to those happy times. Anyway, I've been watching the first season of the show lately, and I love it. Even now that I'm older I can still enjoy this show for what it is, a cute and fun anime. The first few seasons are absolutely timeless; the first season itself is an epic in every single way possible. I recently caught a few of the newer episodes and was horrified at how bad this show has become. It just doesn't FEEL like Pokemon anymore. Not to mention I've lost track at how many new Pokemon there are. What happened to the good old days with Ash, Brock and Misty? Well, I still personally love this show, and I'll continue to watch since it's been so long since I watched it. I might even look for the games if I get the time; it'd be great to play Red or Yellow again. Basically, I love Pokemon, and for someone like me it will never get old and I'll always treasure the memories.
