A Childhood Memory
19 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Whenever I think of Pokemon my heart sinks, but in a good way! It reminds me of my younger life (this is like four years ago by the way :P) This was easily my first and most-loved animes because it outlines my childhood from 10 - 14 when everyone liked it, not that everyone carried on liking it like I did. The original series of Pokemon is by far the best, and I really enjoyed the Johto saga, however recently Pokemon has gone down hill.

The story lines are repetitive and so similar to the original series, and the newest one (Diamond and Pearl) looks to make things worse. I saw the first episode of it (in Japanese) and I loved it until the last 5-10 mins where I thought "Yey! No Ash or Team Rocket!" I should have kept my mouth shut. They crammed Ash AND Team Rocket trying to steal Pikachu.

But afterall, it really is a children's epic story :) I just feel so bad that they've changed the voice actors after 10 years. It's really ruined it for me and I'm sure many other fans of the programme.
