Thoughts on Pokemon The Origins?
The Pokemon anime is like Dragon Ball Z. It's not actually good, but the nostalgia is so strong if you watched it as a kid that you end up still loving it even after realizing it's pretty shitty.
I really wished they made it into a much longer series. Kind of like how I wanted the cinematic B2&W2 trailers to be their own series as well.
The Origins is completely separate from the anime.
It was 4 standalone OVAs starring Red
>Satoshi taking his time exporting the forest and bonding with Pikachu
>Red speed running and just completing the Pokedex and not bonding with his Pokemon and treating them like slaves
Have a webm of that video.
It's actually 100% better without the sound of Charmander screeching in pain
For me it's the scenery porn. Watercolors give me such a hard-on
Origins was shit.
If it didn't come out at the same time as God-tier XY, it probably would be remembered a bit more fondly by people who haven't cared about Pokemon in 15 years and opinions don't really matter.
But it didn't.
I think that, you sir, are mad
>Using autistic Gen 3 and not Redgy
>Rhyhorn, use Thunderbolt!
I was pretty disappointed
It was a fine opportunity to have a poke anime without Ash, perhaps even a proof of concept for a PokeSpe adaptation.
Literally all they had to do was two or three gym battles an episode but instead we got Muh spooky marowak for one fourth of the OVA and Mega Zard Pandering: The Commercial Experience.
I could extend my suspension of disbelief far enough to ignore Jolteon getting OHKO'd by a 30 SpA electric move but ultimately it just really didn't execute well.
It varies from part to part. A lot of the third game and remake sections (Fire Red/ Leaf Green, Platinum, Heart Gold/ Soul Silver) go by way too fast, there isn't enough buildup and they introduce characters that you don't really get to know. The other parts are really good though.
Is that too much to ask for?
Aside from the episode done by OLM, the animation was vastly inferior to the TV serie. Pretty disappointing when it was an OVA.
It's pretty good, but a little too fast paced, as expected.
