Gotta Catch ‘Em All, Pokemon!
Hello, hello, helllooooo everyone. If you came here to read about Ash Ketchum,
then fuck off please let me enlighten you on someone better. Pokemon Origins is a story about Red. Red is the original character from the Japanese manga.
Ash Ketchum is the character that was created for the younger viewers. I’ll admit that he’s the better protagonist for the TV shows but his pokemon training skills are overrated. In fact, it’s shit tbh. OH YES, I AM DEFINITELY PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE. I LOVE POKEMON BUT ASH is just……no words to describe *coma.
Now we have Red. He is actually what you call a Pokemon MASTER. He has actually caught them all, unlike bitch ass Ash who only caught around 30 pokemon in the Kanto region. Red has only been defeated once and that was by his rival Blue. Red took down the whole Team Rocket Corporation single-handedly. Ash is still battling Jessie and James every day. Although watching Ash can be entertaining, I feel Red does a better job of Catching them all LOL.
Now Red starts off at Pallet Town and chooses Charmander as his starting pokemon. His rival Blue chooses a Squirtle. They both set off vowing to each other that they will complete the Pokedex first. The journey begins and Red encounters a wild Pidgey. Unlike Ash, he actually captures successfully the first time. Red was able to capture all 150 pokemon in the Kanto region. Here is a list of his favourite rotation 🙂
His first and most significant gym battle was with Brock, who taught him the true meaning of Pokemon Battles. The level of synchronization and trust that Red builts with his pokemon is legendary. We can see the growth and evolution of Charmander all the way to Charizard pretty early on in the journey. This really puts an emphasis on the trust that his Charizard has for him and this will be critical for the final battle against Mewtwo.
Out of frustration, Red barges into the Silph Company where Team Rocket had taken over. Ash seeks Giovani for his evil doings. He was able to free all of the scientists and pokemon that were kept as hostages in the building. He was able to catch Giovanni before he made his escape. They had a mini battle but once Ash’s first pokemon was knocked out, Giovani made an escape like a little biatchhhhh. The good thing about this raid was that Ash received a Lapras as a thank you present so it all works out lol.
Red obtains badge number 7 heads to Viridian City to obtain his final badge. To his surprise, Giovani is the last gym leader! Shit just got real here. Giovani first sent out his Rhyhorn which wipes the floor with 4 of Red’s pokemon. Out of the blue, Red sends manages to get a double knockout with his Hitmonlee. Have you guys ever played the first gen game? That shit is pretty impressive! Finally sending out Charizard to the final fight against another Rhydon. Giovani had a wave of nostalgia as he sees Red’s passion and determination as he beats his pokemon. Earing the respect of Giovani, He awards Red with the final badge and decides to disband Team Rocket as a whole.
And now Red arrives at the Indigo Plateau and takes down the Elite Four in a breeze. He just makes everyone look like shit. I mean, I spent at least half a day to beat them haha. Turns out blue has already beaten the Elite Four before and was waiting for Red. No surprises there…….. So they battle and it all comes down to their very first starter Pokemons. Charizard vs Blastoise. Punches were being thrown, it was a slugfest none the least. Flamethrower here and hydro pump there and boom. Charizard wins lmao.
After winning, Red continues his quest to capture them all. He returns to Pallet town after managing to catch 149 pokemon. He comes home and Blue bed-ridden after getting his ass whooped by a not so mysterious pokemon called Mewtwo. Prof. Oak gave Red the evolution stones with a few shitty advice like “You can not ride your bike indoors” and he set off once again.
Red rushes to the legendary cave to capture Mewtwo. He sends out his Gengar and Articuno but that shit was useless against Mewtwo lol. Finally Red sends out his trusty partner Charizard or Lizadon to fight Mewtwo. But they were both no math and was knocked into the water lol.
Legend has it, if a bond between a Charizard and its human partner is strong enough, a great force of power will build up. The evolution stone started glowing reacting to their bond resulting in MEGA EVOLUTIONNNNNN. And thus Mega Charizard X was born. With increased speed, strength and good looks, Mega Charizard, Mega Punched Mewtwo into a wall. Red throws an ultra ball and captures Mewtwo successfully. Not sure why he didn’t use the master ball like the manga to avoid this whole fight lol
Pokemon Origins was concluded in only 4 episodes. The whole Kanto journey was pretty rushed. Red manages to get all 8 badges in the blink of an eye and supposedly beat the whole game in 35 hours lol. I like Red because he’s a cool an intelligent guy. Unlike Ash who always asking “What pokemon is that?” every time he encounters something new. There was very little room for character development. We didn’t see his struggles but a lot of emphases was put into his achievements which I personally think is fine. I believe that Ash is the better protagonist but Red is the better trainer. However, I still love both of the animes I will keep watching them regardless of other peoples opinions.
Meanwhile back Pallet Town, Red saw Mew flying across his window. Realising that there was still Mew left to be captured he becomes fully determined to complete his Pokedex once and for all 😉
