Did You Know?


The rival is named Green in the original Japanese release, but is called Blue in the English dub. This is because the first Pokémon games in Japan were called Red and Green, while the first localized releases were called Red and Blue, due to them being a combination of the Japanese Red, Green, and Blue games. Despite having his name changed in the English dub, however, "Blue" still wears a green shirt. See more »

Nice, but too rushed and over-rated
29 October 2014 | by reddragonhero17See all my reviews

I grew up with the original Pokémon (Seasons 1-5) and I still love it to this day. It was nice to go back to where it all started since right now I couldn't stand Best Wishes and the more recent XY. However, I feel that just 4-5 episodes is just WAY too short to fully tell a Pokémon story. In the regular show every episode was worth the watch as it was more than just formula, it felt like reading a novel. They made Red to be too perfect unlike Ash who really felt more alive. Sorry fans of this one, but Ash's faults were there for a purpose not to drive you crazy. And the whole "win only one tournament" was there for a reason as well. Here the ultra condensed version is just mostly action, very little adventure, comedy, and drama and that's it. I liked how they played it out in the fashion of the Gameboy Games, but the reason I preferred the anime more, is that it had more life. Characters thought, had deep psychology, and made tough if difficult decisions. Here we don't get that as much. Finally, I felt that the mega stone thing was out of place. The creators should stick where it was back then and what it should be.
