Trivia

The names of Jessie and James of Team Rocket were changed from their original Japanese names due to cultural reasons. In Japan, they are known as Musashi (Jessie) and Kojiro (James), which is a literary reference to two rival Samurai. 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 »

Popular Show...
16 December 1998 | by (Wilmington, CA) – See all my reviews

This show is based on a VERY popular game in Japan. I like this show. A lot of my friends like it. We think it's cool. It's a good ANIME show.
