Interests
    When the Pokemon franchise first came out, it was an explosions with millions upon millions of kids got hooked into it watching the tv show, playing the card game which in my case I would just collect. But when the games came out for the Gameboy that was it. Pokemon was on top of the world and every kid loved it while every parent feared it as they saw their wallets getting skinny. When Pokemon came to my life I was absolutely on board. I collected the cards, I got the red version as a gift from a family friend while I got the blue version for Christmas. I even collected the small figures and the VHS tapes. Yes I was that much of a fan of the franchise. Especially when I watch the show with Ash, Pikachu, Misty and Brock. I would watch EVERY episode even the Orange Islands with Tracey. I would watch the Johto saga, The Hoenn saga, The Battle Frontier Saga and what I could consider my favorite The Sinnoh Saga although I was sad to see Misty, May, Max, Dawn and eventually Brock leave the show....but then came the....sigh...the Unova saga which in my opinion is the worst of the bunch the only good things from it was that Charizard came back and more or less the N saga but that's it the rest was just crap.

    But when I saw Pokemon Origins and finish watching it, One question came to my mind.....Why isn't the original anime like origins? Pokemon Origins it follows the story of the original games of Red and Blue versions and instead of Ash we get Red and instead of Gary we get Blue the original characters that goes on a journey and instead to be a Pokemon Master they go to complete the Pokedex and become the Pokemon League Champion like original anime should have done. Pokemon Origins is only 4 episodes long which it meant that most of the story is rushed like Red challenging the Gyms with Brock being the only one with a speaking role while the rest only got cameos. Not to mention that the whole thing was fast-forwarding the journey I mean I can understand that shoving in a whole story in only four episodes is very difficult, which left me with another question. Why only 4 episodes? Each episodes has an important part from the original games, from Red's first victory over Brock, His time in Lavender Town exploring the Pokemon Tower and fighting Team Rocket and no I don't mean Jessie and James I mean the REAL Team Rocket Grunts with their Pokemon like Zubat and such, and to his battles with the Leader of Team Rocket Giovanni and his battles with the elite four and eventually fighting Blue to become the champion. After that Red goes on to capture the rest of the 149 pokemon including Mewtwo. 

    The main character in this special is Red as it mostly concentrates on him as he matures as a pokemon trainer while Blue those have his moments but mostly to show his arrogants and then we also have the wise Prof. Oak who even with little screen time he's very memorable. Brock was great in this special as he was like a mentor to Red as he would show him the way of the Pokemon Trainer. Giovanni was a great villain in this, he was as dark as he was in the games similar to the one in the original anime but much more sinister and finally Mr. Fuji and Reina are great characters who cared for abandoned and lost Pokemon. And the rest of the characters well like I said before the gym leaders aside Brock and Giovanni only get non-speaking cameos while the rests are just extras from the background.

    The story is very faithful to the original games even there are a few parts that are different but their are few and far between. It's mostly Red's journey to be the league champion and to complete the pokedex. Normally there's more to just that but since it's only 4 episodes long a lot of stuff were either cut out or fast forward to the next big adventure. If Pokemon Origins wasn't 4 episodes long and would have been like 12 episodes long the experience would have been a WHOLE lot better.

    All in all Pokemon Origins is really a love letter for the long time fans. The only downside is that it is a short 4 episode special so the story is shorten considerably and they only show small parts of the battles with the Gym Leaders and the Elite Four besides Brock and Giovanni and the Champion Battle with Blue. But over all it a special that I can see myself watching it again and again. Is it better than the original anime OF COURSE! By a landslide this is by far superior than the original anime. As in here we watch Red grow as a trainer while on the other hand Ash would remain the ding-bat that he is.

    So with that I give Pokemon Origins: 8 out of 10 and if you are a long time pokemon and haven't seen this special I really recommend that you give it a watch as it will give a wave of nostalgia you will not regret it.

    So till next time, I'm Alpha Espada sighing out. I salute you!
