Pokemon Generations: The Redemption (Episode 18)

A timeless love 

The final episode of Pokemon Generations comes in the form of The Redemption, and I’ll say right now that the series definitely redeemed itself after The Investigation, ending it on a high and touching episode.

Since this is the final time we see the Kalos and the Pokemon Universe in Generations, what better way to end it by featuring post-game content. I know that The Investigation had post-game content, but that was kinda meh. I guess it was included to save this part of the content for the final episode. Good job, but I still don’t like The Investigation. Continue reading “Pokemon Generations: The Redemption (Episode 18)”

Pokemon Generations: The Investigation (Episode 17)

A Pokemon remembers

It’s the penultimate episode of Pokemon Generations, and wow did the time fly by. It felt like just the other day I was watching the first two episodes that came out and seeing a montage of the different Regions before starting our adventure in the Kanto Region.

Again we’re in the Kalos Region, and The Investigation failed to impress. I wasn’t entirely focused on the episode the first time I watched it, but when I watched it again, it wasn’t anything amazing. Unlike previous episodes, The Investigation has made a dip in the quality of Pokemon Generations episodes released. It is a shame really, considering how each episode has surpassed the previous, and now we get something like this. Continue reading “Pokemon Generations: The Investigation (Episode 17)”

Pokemon Generations: The Beauty Eternal (Episode 16)

No rest for the wicked

So there are around two or three (maybe four to make it a nice 20) episodes to go now before the end of a short but amazing series that is Pokemon Generations. And we’re finally in the Kalos Region! I haven’t played X or Y, but from the looks of this episode, it’s a pretty interesting Region with its villains.

The Beauty Eternal is sort of a fast paced but dark episode, and is a strong-ish start to a new Region. Lysandre is our main guy in this episode and judging from the glimpse of Yveltal at the end *late spoiler alert*, he’s the villain from Pokemon Y. At first I thought he was a good guy, what with how he seemed to be portrayed during a public presentation with his Pyroar, until he mentions something about never letting the world become ugly. Turns out he’s part of Team Flare. My lack of Pokemon gaming knowledge is clearly showing… Continue reading “Pokemon Generations: The Beauty Eternal (Episode 16)”

Pokemon Generations: The King Returns (Episode 15)

Poke-fusion?

Well there’s a first time for everything, and this week’s episode definitely proved that. It was such an amazing episode that it made me wonder why all anime isn’t this good. There is a good handful of anime that’s brilliant don’t get me wrong, but when you have a short series like Pokemon Generations, it makes you wonder why there aren’t more hidden gems like this out there.

The King Returns is still based in the Unova Region and continues on from The Frozen World with Kyurem under the control of Team Plasma. Ghetsis is using it to create an ice age in Unova which as you saw in The Frozen World, worked well against Gym Leader Drayden who failed in saving Opelucid City from Team Plasma. It’s definitely a strong episode and has everything you could ask for: good score playing in the background, Legendary Pokemon, strong storyline, and Pokemon Fusion.  Continue reading “Pokemon Generations: The King Returns (Episode 15)”

Pokemon Generations: The Frozen World (Episode 14)

Ice ice baby


Wow, and I thought The Uprising was dark but epic. As promised, I watched The Frozen World shortly after I posted up the review for The Uprising, and it just amazed me at how things took an even darker turn.

The Frozen World is a continuation of The Uprising what with the battle between the Gym Leaders and Team Plasma, only this time the number of people and Pokemon have decreased, and the battle in this episode takes place in a more crowded area.

So you’re watching an episode of Pokemon Generations (of course) but it’s not your standard Pokemon Generations episode. Instead of being in open areas or in caves and what have you, we’re in Opelucid City in the Unova Region with Batman-style action. No no there’s no (Zu-/Gol-) Batman; it’s a Pokemon meets Batman episode. You’ll see what I mean. Continue reading “Pokemon Generations: The Frozen World (Episode 14)”

Pokemon Generations: The Uprising (Episode 13)

Time for Unova Region

That pun was intended, but apologies if you’re throwing tomatoes at the screen =P I try to make my posts as fun and interesting as possible!

Anyway, another late Pokemon Generations post, but I will have this week’s episode (Episode 14) up shortly after this one, so I’ll be back on track next week. Now we’re in the Unova Region, and those who watch the anime will know our main girl Iris is the MC in this episode. She sounds a lot like Lucy Heartfilia from the English Dub version of Fairy Tail. Does sort of suit her. Continue reading “Pokemon Generations: The Uprising (Episode 13)”

Pokemon Generations: The Magma Stone (Episode 12)

Team Galactic are back at it again

Sorry for another late Pokemon Generations review; being a final year uni student means a very busy schedule. But I haven’t forgotten my beloved readers!

The Magma Stone is last week’s episode which featured Team Galactic yet again, who now have a new leader, Charon, since former leader Cyrus just left them to it after finding his utopia in The New World. Talk about being a good team player eh?

Anyway, Team Galactic have left their plan to use Dialga and Palkia to create their ideal world, and have turned to another Legendary Pokemon: Heatran. I guess this is the worst of the three Pokemon considering it lives in Stark Mountain and is a Fire/Steel Type, whereas Dialga is just a Steel Type and Palkia is a Water Type.  Continue reading “Pokemon Generations: The Magma Stone (Episode 12)”

Pokemon Generations: The New World (Episode 11)

Sometimes it’s best to compromise

You don’t really consider that when it comes to evil schemes, but it worked for the first time (that I know of), and we Pokemon fans got to see it in this week’s episode!

That’s right guys, a Pokemon “exclusive” has come to us in the form of Team Galactic in the Sinnoh Region, where Cyrus chooses to settle with a compromise rather than see his plan through of creating a new world! Talk about making us feel special eh? Team Aqua and Magma should take a leaf out of their book. Continue reading “Pokemon Generations: The New World (Episode 11)”

Pokemon Generations (Episodes 9 & 10)

Epic space battle and a haunted chateau!

 

Yes! Rayquaza makes its debut in the Hoenn Region just as I hoped back in Episode 8! And in space!
Mini celebration aside, we get a final glimpse of the goings on in the Hoenn Region in Episode 9 before moving on to the Sinnoh Region in Episode 10, but no Pokemon from that Region show up for now. I guess the theme for that episode was chosen because Halloween is today (even though the episodes aired last Friday, but who cares eh?).

Pokemon Generations: The Cavern (Episode 8)

Kai-ogre?

I pronounce it Kyo-grey, but then that’s like people calling Tidus from FFX Tide-us (I do) rather than the actual pronunciation which is Tee-dus. Tide-us suits him more.

Well the subtitle has pretty much spoiled the main Pokemon we see in this episode, but then again you see Primal Groudon in The Vision (Episode 7), so of course Kyogre would show up soon after. And don’t forget about Team Aqua showing up since Team Magma was in the previous episode too. Continue reading “Pokemon Generations: The Cavern (Episode 8)”
