Puck, Isidro, Farnese, Schierke and Serpico all seem to be here.

  Coming in July I'm hyped up for this. I hope they get to some of the finer points past the eclipse. Hopefully Rickett made it too.

Pokemon Indigo League Ep 002 Pokemon Emergency

I just noticed from the intro that Pikachu has been a perv since the very beginning. It paints a different perception in my head now of how Pikachu is. I've caught him flipping off the audience many times. I'll post as i go.

I've heard of complaints of the new 3d detective pikachu game that had him doing that. I see that that is part of his character. He is a belligerent rat. Who the hell is the girl? I don't recall guess ill find out.

The say Po-Ka-Mon yet sing Po Kay-mon. 4K didn't give a fuck.
Poke' MON
It opens with another character that didn't get to much action in the game. Holy crap this cop is sellin that script, porn star VA's are less jubilant.

Not even 10 minutes into his journey and pikachu is done for.

first mention of Jessie and James.
The cop runs ash to the hospital nwhile misty comes seeking revenge.

Misty from revenge town.
 Late to the party ash narrowly misses the burn bike beatdown.
Jessie/Musashi and James/Kojiro
Jessie and james are the minions in the game that try to capture anything the main character has caught. It lways ends in disaster for them which is part of the running gag.

They are very serious in the beginning. They are the laughing stock of the show.
Two NPCs meet.
She typed Nightmare into this windows 98 PC.
 This nurse literally throws your poke balls into a magic incubator in the game curing each without status worries, but the show. Sends in the Nightmares.
My personal nightmare.
Ive heard less slurring from woman after a bottle of wine. These VAs must have been into the roles.

No lip flap goes un worded.

The actual anime story is hidden beneath a moutain of english dub nonsence. That's not a bad thing. You don't want to bore the kids to death. I've watched the first season in Japanese. The dub has a lot more going for it.

"It to your dad 4 days to get to veridion city"

So Ash's dad was a pokemon trainer? Is he ever mentioned again?
How Japanese

These useful kiosks from the game appear where they are supposed to.
White Album was boring.
 These payphones are common in Japan. America has phased them out, they are a rarity to see. outside of airports or prisons anyway.

Barf Hello, Barf.

Noted for their green color, comparing them to pokemon magic is a waste of time.
Sick legends bro.

Ash notices that there is a painting of legendary pokemon in the hospital lobby.

Which happens to be a conference call.
They are making it seem like Ash is in some set up world like the Truman Show. Nevermind lettiung a 10 year old child "journey across the land". You must go collect them all. Creepy.
Pissty has arrived.
We'll send the bill to your MOM, kid.
Pikachu ends up being Ok. What a relief.
Ekans, Koffing

Team Rocket appears. They want rare pokemon. All hell breaks loose turning the hospital into a mess, the crew runs into the pokeball room where the lights go out.

Oh not to worry, the hospital has their own source of back up generator
As a defense the pokeballs are transported via satellite to another center
Anti theft teleportation.
 In a world where nothing but capturing Pokemon matters,  they have automated defenses ready to go.
Meowth Takes charge
 Nya? Meowth is the only redeemable char in Team rocket.
Pikachu destroys Team rocket
 "Gonna need a montage". They dim the flash effects because kids in Japan went into seizures watching the first season. Now everything is dimmed.
Veridion City's hospital is obliterated by the new guy.
They talk about ash having to go to Pewter city but they have to go through Veridion City's Forrest to get there. Ash encounters his first pokemon since Pikachu technically doesnt stay in the pokeball.

I used to catch the hell out of caterpies

Episode 2 ends with Ash trying to capture a caterpie. No one is responsible for the destroyed hospital or buying misty a new bike.

Pokemon Indigo League Ep 001 Pokemon! I Choose You!

I gotten ahold of all episodes of Pokemon. My god what has my life come to? Half Dub half sub I know about name changes and what not. Ive played through the first game which was excellent its old school and seemed to work the best. XY &Z is the new iteration I'm going to start from the beginning.

Just like the game Ash/Satoshi starts in house and has to get a pokemon from the professor figure. The First 3 pokemon are Squirtle, Bulbasar, Charmander. I'm not sure who would pick anyone but charmander but it all seemed to be the same game with minor changes.
That is actually a later level pokemon, Ash got a good deal.

Misty is a charcter that a bunch of people favor, She ends up being a gym leader down the road.
Misty/Kasumi in her natural element. Yelling at ash.
Ash meets misty and then staels her bike to go save pikachu. Misty is now an active part of Ashs journey.

Wrath of Kasumi.
In the pokemon manga everything bwas a bit more serious. Spearow did attack but it was more violent. The first episode ends with not only an outro (ED) , in the dub includes a "POKERAP" to hammer the collectors series on home. Definitely a product of its time. Or 4kids time. Thank god those days are over.

Major Season 1 Episode 2

Goro wakes up to find his dad practicing batting. He is going to become a batter.
Honda's buddy from highschool is in the paper.
Pitcher turned batter. Quite the dream.
Giant Cannon Robo got smashed, Goro will be pissed.
 New character Toshino is shown playing videogames instead of doing drills. HE IS IN ELEMENTARY. Japan doesn't fuck around.
 Toshi takes an intrest in what Goro is doing,
Goro sees him and says let's play. Toshi is obviously the typical study study study hammered nail down type kid. It makes Goro look like a delinquent.
Toshi declines because he doesnt have a glove, or balls for that matter.
Goro busts in and imposes baseball upon the local. The nerd is intrigued.
You mean ?
Meanwhile Honda goes back with a wild notion that he is now the hitter they have been looking for.

In 1992 I was an impressionable youth, I was shown Mr. Baseball, Little Nemo and Terminator 2. What A wild combo.
 I can't believe a 10 year old me sat through something like that.
Such a great animation with Miyazaki's help.
And what makes that cider so super?
 They decide to give Honda a chance.
 His friend that he seen in the paper happens to be there and decides its a great time to challenge Honda like they did back in high school.
 A pro pitcher would destroy a new batter.
 Honda is losing.......
 But starts to predict and believe because he was once a pitcher (hours ago.) that he can predict what is going on at bat.
Success Honda gets a home run in fear of working at Lawson's.
 One thing that I noticed is so far the food they have been sitting near or finished has been Hybrid or more English food. Most anime will have characters eating staple fish and rice, Ramen or Soba, some house bento or sushi, hot pot, shabu shabu, onigiri, tako, uni or some sort of pickled rice dish. Toast in the mornings. In only two episodes I've seen Sausage, eggs and toast, salad and now steak. I applaud them for this.
 I don't see any cows around.
 Spoken like NOT an elementary gaki.
 Mean while Toshi is getting his ass ripped by Okasan.
 From Elementary to Adult, Japan doesn't fuck around # 2.
 Meanwhile, again Goro's sensei Hoshino is runnin around in the teacher housing listening to complaints of cleaning duties.
Coincidence or creepy?
Hoshino looks out the balcony and spots Goro who is on his way to train.
 Hoshino's friend might have a point or she is infatuated with the kid.

Toshi's super strict mom won't allow Toshi to play baseball. Goro turns around to find that the glove he gave Toshi is on a trash can. Goro is upset.
 Honda explains to Goro that he might be misunderstanding the situation if he didn't ask Toshi about the glove. That's right, morals.
 Toshi flips out on his mom and wants the glove back, his mom says she will get another one for him when he passes the test. Life is a series of tests.
Onto Episode 3
