This blog will contain spoilers for Pokemon Journeys: The Series
Hi there all!
I hope this is the proper place to post this as I'm still pretty new around here, but I think it is!
I really really want to watch more of the Pokemon anime as it's something i've only slightly dipped my toes into in the past and never really ending up sticking with and I thought that a good way to make myself watch the series and keep up with it would be to blog about my thoughts on the anime and episodes here! I'm really excited to start seriously watching the show, and since I know Pokemon Journeys is more or less a soft reboot and isn't too far in yet (maybe? I have no idea what they plan to do after the champion league thing hes in now and I think hes actually quite high but it feels like it might be a little odd to reboot the series again so who knows) so I feel like its a really good time to jump in!
Now regarding myself a little bit and my experiences with Pokemon up to now
I really enjoy Pokemon - I always have, but my enjoyment for it has definitely gotten stronger over time and currently I'm loving the series. Now, my first game was Pokemon FireRed and I remember being super young at the time when it came out so I honestly hardly remember it and doubt I beat it, however what I do remember is getting Emerald a year or two after and LOVING it. When I got Emerald I was a bit older since I waited until my next birthday to get it and I actually understood what was going on, I also thought it was a direct sequel to FireRed because of team magma being red lol.
My love for emerald lasted for ages and honestly I played it over and over and over again...until I got my hands on Pokemon Colosseum which is, still to this day, my favourite Pokemon game. Because this was my third game and I thought the rest of the series was going to be like this (even more so after playing XD) I kind of grew into really liking the lore of the series. Skip ahead to now and the lore is STILL what I love about the games, even if most of the time it isn't confirmed or fan theorys, I guess I just love the world of pokemon y'know? I kind of took a break after platinum (I tried gen 5 but this was around the time I had a neck injury, so playing handhelds was hard on me, I did beat Pokemon X however it took a very long time, and I played Sun/Moon but not even to the first totem pokemon, and I didn't touch Ultra Sun/Moon at all - however I remember playing and LOVING the mystery dungeon series, as well as pokemon ranger) and jumped back in with Sword and Shield (I always play my switch docked, and I love that I can do that!) which really kicked me into researching everything I had missed and catching up on the games through watching LP's! Now with PLA out which is definitely a more lore heavy game it's sparked even MORE interest in me, which is whats leading me to want to watch the anime!
Anyway, I'm really excited to watch Pokemon Journeys and share my thoughts here, everyone seems so nice and i'm glad to have made my account and started interacting with the community more!
I have seen the first and second? episode I believe already about a week ago, and so far my main comment is oh my god I thought the Pichu Kangaskhan stuff was SO cute!
If anyone is watching along or has any of their own comments about the episodes i'm watching, let me know! I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on the episodes compared to mine, so don't be shy! All I ask regarding this is that you don't post about episodes that I haven't seen yet!
Also Also - there's going to be spoilers for Pokemon Journeys in here, i'll be labeling each post with the episode's i'll be talking about in bold and putting a bit of space before I write, but just know there will be spoilers for Pokémon Journeys: The Series in here
