At first I was excited to see Green (or Blue) as the protagonist. It took me a while to realize this was based on LGPE.

Animation wise... nothing too particular. Sometimes the movements were static, other times (especially with Blastoise) the attacks were pretty cool.

The nugget bridge challenge was hilarious.

Overall, to rank my favorites based on animation and storytelling:
1. Ep 04 The Plan
2. Ep 06 The Wish
3. Ep 07 The Show
4. Ep 02 The Eclipse
5. Ep 08 The Discovery
6. Ep 05 The Rival
7. Ep 03 The Visionary
8. Ep 01 The Champion

This one felt like it had the most love put into it out of the shorts. I guess someone is a Kanto stan in the production? :p Seriously though the music and art and animation were AMAZING, and I loved the lighter hearted tone it took. I guess Kanto has been done so many times in so many ways that they can afford to play with it a bit without offending those for whom it is very important and serious business.

The quality in this one was really good. Fluid animation, lots of nice small details in the frames, wonderfully-crafted backgrounds, and just excellent art in general. The close-ups of their faces and especially the sparkle in the eyes just looked so good. Didn't expect this to lean towards LGPE's story but really ended up liking that anyway. Trace looked pretty cool in this rendition too, quite different to his more chibified look in the games.. gives me more appreciation for his character seeing him in this style.

What I loved most was Green's adorable little wink and hand wave ahshdhfh. so. cute :bulbaLove: And so is the ending. Protag and Green looking at each other and blushing was uwu

For me the weirdness is seeing Blue in that outfit. I know it's the one he wore in the original games and LGPE, but now I'm more used to seeing him in his FRLG and HGSS outfits, and I tend to associate the original one with Gary.
