Most of us have played Pokémon at some point in our lives, whether it be for Nintendo, the trading cards, or perhaps even the figures – and most of us have most likely done it more than once, and in the later years. We all know the feeling of watching the Generation 1 series, and just get the urge to play the Generation 1 games for your gameboy colour; but for some reason it just didn’t quite do it every time. Something was wrong, and I was never really able to put my finger on it. But I do now, and I’m surprised I was never able to realize it before now. The story in the TV series and the story in the games didn’t fit! Not one bit!
But that is not a problem anymore. A few weeks ago the Pokémon Origins was released, and features a story that follows the exactly as it is shown in the Generation 1 games! The story follows the lead character, Red, as he travels through Kanto and encounters all the oh so well known problems, as the ghost in Lavender Town, Giovanni and Team Rocket, and others I’m sure you’ll be familiar with!
Although the Pokémon Origin only seems to be in Japanese it does have English subtitles and is more than worth the watch! It brought back so much nostalgia!
But do keep in mind that it is in Japanese, and although it might be subbed, the names still appear as the original names – just so that you don’t get confused while watching!
But now, go ahead, watch and enjoy it here!
