Just caught Pokemon Origins.

I'm not a big Poke-Freak - I've only played the original and it's remake for the GBA. I just love the original 150 - (in case y'all haven't noticed - I'm big on nostalgia and cartoons). I got Pokemon X / Y 'cuz not only does it have every Pokemon to date in the game - but for the first time, they're all rendered as fully-animated 3D models - instead of just simple sprites! (not counting Pokemon Stadium or Snap on N64) You can interact w/ 'em: play games w/ 'em, feed n' pet 'em - they're like virtual pets! Cool!

 

Had the game for a year now, but let it go (a year ago) after I beat it - I picked it up back up a month ago and decided to finish my original intent: catching the original 150. I really don't care 'bout catching the other...freakin' 600(!) Pokemon. I catch what I can - but I'm not on any mission to 'catch 'em all'. I finished catching the 150 OGs last night (minus the original 3 Legendary birds n' Mew - which Gamestop gave out (Mew) as a digital event a week before I picked it back up...fuuuuck...(Feb 2016)...fuuuuck...

 

So - doing a bit of research into catching the Legendary Pokemon and understanding all these new mechanics that have been implemented w/ all the sequels over the years - I discovered a movie had been made about a year ago called Pokemon Origins that is essentially the first game condensed into an hour n' a half.

 

Unlike the original cartoon series based on the first game, which is like 80 episodes - this is just 4, 20 minutes episodes. It follows the game much more closely, character design and a lot of the dialogue is lifted directly from the game. The 2nd episode is kinda 'yawn-inducing' but the 3rd n' 4th episodes really pick it back up.

 

Highly freakin' recommended to anyone who's got any love for the original. It felt like a Ghibli production. Bold words, yes - but it felt...like a very high-quality production.

 

Nintendo had it exclusively on their site, but it's since had a bluray release (only in Japan) and it's on iTunes n' Instant Amazon in the US. BUT, fortunately - all 4 episodes have been posted on youtube.

LOL - I know, right?! Those battles were brutal / intense! Kinda felt bad for those poor Pokemon - LOL. Gawl - I'd love to check out the whole piece in 1080p. There's quality art n' animation in there.

 

I got touched w/ Poke-Fever n' did a bit of research on 'Red'. I had my character in X / Y look like Ash - but after seeing that - I changed him up to look like Red. (You can customize your character)

 

In researching his 'look' - I learned that there's a 'Red vs Ash Ketchum' bug up the hardcore base's butt - pretty cool! Nerd-debate/rage...gotta love it.

 

Red has 2 looks - the original GB and his GBA 'update'. Looks like Nintendo stuck w/ his GBA version - that's what I ended up referencing.
