Trivia

Goofs

In one episode, an Exeggcute evolves into an Exeggutor without a Leaf Stone. This Pokémon requires the Leaf Stone to evolve - it can not evolve through experience points. See more »

Crazy Credits

First season has a "Poke Rap" segment prior to the end credits, combining the names of the (original 150) Pokemon into a rap-style song. There are 5 different segments like this total, adding up to the total 150. Home video releases featured the complete Poke Rap, combining all 5 parts. See more »

Alternate Versions

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.

Gotta catch em' all!
15 April 1999 | by JohnnyJohnHildegaardSee all my reviews

Pokemon is the best executed cartoons of all time. It's just so cool to watch. The humor is wacked and funny and the Pokemon are so cute. I just love that Pikachu, it's just so cute to watch at. Not to mention the fact that the Game Boy game is also an awesome thing. It's an awesome show, if you go buy your Pokemon game, also go buy a video of Pokemon too. You'll be surprised.
