My name is Pokequesthero, and am a fan of Pokémon. My favorite Pokémon is Pikachu. I really don't know why they don't say Gotta Catch 'Em All! anymore, because you still have to do it to complete the Pokédex, and I like that motto. I also like the anime opening theme songs; my favorites are Battle Frontier, Pokémon Johto, Battle Cry - (Stand Up!), and Black and White. Some other songs I like are Can't Stop (Catchin' 'Em All), Kanto Pokérap, Together Forever, and Viridian City.
I'm a girl and live in the US. When I was eleven, my best friend suddenly became a "Pokémon maniac", as she called herself. We played with her Pokémon plush toys, and watched episodes and movies on her computer. I wanted to learn more about Pokémon, and because of that, became a fan myself. The rest of the page tells more about my PokéLife.
I think the Pokémon anime is okay; watching it was how I first learned about some basic Pokémon stuff. I watched episodes on pokemon.com before realizing I could check out the three Indigo League boxed sets and the Orange Islands episodes from the library. After watching those episodes, I became obsessed with the Kanto region.
What I don't like about the anime is that Ash Ketchum, the main character, is so rash and acts like a little kid. His voice, along with Misty's and some other characters, is kind of high-pitched. I always wonder where the Team Rocket trio always blasts off. Brock flirts with every pretty woman he meets.
Plus, it took me a long time to realize that no one ever ages or gets older. When I watched The Battle of the Badge, Ash said that a whole year had passed since he last been to Viridian City. That made me want to think he is eleven years old. Then, I watched In the Shadow of Zekrom on pokemon.com and the narrator said he is STILL ten, and that made me all confused. This is a reason how I dislike the anime; "timeless" is how I put it.
The movies are good; I like how they are about Legendary Pokémon. My favorites are the Diamond and Pearl trilogy. I am looking forward to watching the newest Black and White one, the one about Victini, Reshiram, and Zekrom. I just already read the new manga adaption to White: Victini and Zekrom, and it was good. After all, I'd rather watch movies than episodes because of how epic they are.
One time, when I was at the library, I went to the shelf where the Pokémon books are. I saw the first volume of Pokémon Adventures, so checked it out without reading the blurb. It took me a few seconds to realize that it's read right to left. I looked at the adventure route map in the back and realized at least one Pokémon is battled with in each round.
