Ten-year-old Ash aspires to be the greatest Pokémon (pocket monster) trainer in the world. To do this, he enlists the help of many friends, and his own Pokémon, Pikachu. 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

I've been watching you. You're up to no good! And there's no good in your future!
James of Team Rocket:
Who? The police, the sheriff, the FBI?
I see a young and beautiful woman who will lead you to a cruel fate.
James of Team Rocket:
I don't need a fortune teller to know that. Some woman is ALWAYS causing me trouble! It's a curse...
[stares suspiciously towards James]
WHO exactly do you mean?

The 4Kids version 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).
