Trivia

Following the terrorist attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001, the episode 'A Scare in the Air' had its title changed to 'Spirits in the Sky' out of respect for the United States fans. The episode 'Tentacool and Tentacruel' was pulled from the rotation due to its storyline which featured a creature that destroyed skyscrapers. In total, there were three episodes that were pulled because of 9/11, which have since been put back since Cartoon Network started showing reruns. See more »

Goofs

In one episode Brock's Geodude participates in an all-Fighting Pokemon tournament. A Geodude, however, is NOT fighting, it's rock/ground. In the original card series there was no rock or ground type, only fighting type to represent all three types. See more »

Quotes

Jessie: Good thing we ran into this sign.
James of Team Rocket: Yes, it's a good sign.

Took me by surprise
15 November 1999 | by (Schaumburg, IL) – See all my reviews

I'll start off by saying that the first time I saw this show, I hated it. I liked Pikachu, but couldn't stand Ash and Misty. Their lines just seemed to exaggerated and obvious. However, after becoming addicted to the video game, I gradually gained a type of guilty pleasure of watching this show. After seeing the first episode, I started calling it a pretty cool show, but couldn't watch it very often (High School). Day off, and I saw "Pikachu's Goodbye," I was hooked. I have seen every episode and am now alienated to all the kids at school that dismiss Pokemon. This show does have its mature features if you look and listen close enough, and has a really good storyline. Do not dismiss this show like I almost did. It's definitely worth a look.
