Crazy Credits

First season has a "Poke Rap" segment prior to the end credits, combining the names of the (original 150) Pokemon into a rap-style song. There are 5 different segments like this total, adding up to the total 150. Home video releases featured the complete Poke Rap, combining all 5 parts. See more »

Another response to Gal-5
28 December 1999 | by (Schaumburg, IL) – See all my reviews

Probably tired of all these comments, but I have to comment on Gal-5's latest comment. First off, it is not a "fact" that Pokemon is "the worst show ever," but your opinion. More so, however, I want to ask in general why people are becoming so incredibly superficial when it comes to judging cartoons. You say horrible animation. I say what does it matter. The show's appeal comes from the characters, not the animation. Good animation is cool, but that's not what I judge it on. I encounter the same type of judgment when people talk about video games. People, take my advice. Animation is not the most important thing about cartoons. The characters are what make it worth watching.
