Did You Know?

Trivia:
The names of the Team Rocket members were obviously taken from two notorious Western outlaws - Jessie & James from Jesse James, and Cassidy & Butch from Robert "Butch Cassidy" Parker.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): 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:We may be mean and nasty, but we'd never turn our backs on a teammate in trouble.
James of Team Rocket:As long as we're not exposed to any actual physical danger.

A Childhood Memory, 19 December 2006
Author: pocketjg from United Kingdom

Whenever I think of Pokemon my heart sinks, but in a good way! It reminds me of my younger life (this is like four years ago by the way :P) This was easily my first and most-loved animes because it outlines my childhood from 10 - 14 when everyone liked it, not that everyone carried on liking it like I did. The original series of Pokemon is by far the best, and I really enjoyed the Johto saga, however recently Pokemon has gone down hill.

The story lines are repetitive and so similar to the original series, and the newest one (Diamond and Pearl) looks to make things worse. I saw the first episode of it (in Japanese) and I loved it until the last 5-10 mins where I thought "Yey! No Ash or Team Rocket!" I should have kept my mouth shut. They crammed Ash AND Team Rocket trying to steal Pikachu.

But afterall, it really is a children's epic story :) I just feel so bad that they've changed the voice actors after 10 years. It's really ruined it for me and I'm sure many other fans of the programme.
