Together, they must search their world for new Pokémon, while avoiding the likes of Team Rocket, as well as other evil organizations, as well as battling rivals, and meeting legendary Pokémon.Written by

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 »
Many times during the credits now, a Pokémon Karaokémon will play - this is where a jukebox will come up on the screen and a song will play, while the words come up on the screen, and a short video clip is shown. See more »
The English version (as "Pokémon") included removing suggestive content and changing the fate of several characters, as well as editing the story to be much lighter and kid friendly in tone for the US release. Such edits as removal of written Japanese characters on various signs, billboards,etc.; cigar or anything that's a tobacco product, alcoholic like beverages, and any scenes that seem too violent.

OK, I know I'm 22 years old and supposed to be part of the counter-culture that ignores most fads targeted at 8-year olds. But this show rocks! I watched it because of the simple fact there was nothing else on that afternoon, and now I've been swept up in the continuing adventures of Ash, Pikachu, Misty, and token grown-up (that would be Brock or Tracey). And Team Rocket! You gotta love those guys. They try so hard to be evil, but it's not really in there hearts. This show is a lot better than people give it credit for. Check it out (if your over 8 and/or don't have kids).
