Rewatching the whole anime from beginning to current, 1 disk a week (Season 1, Episodes 1 - 9)

2021.12.08 10:56 Gengar6713 Rewatching the whole anime from beginning to current, 1 disk a week (Season 1, Episodes 1 - 9)

Episode 1 - Pokémon! I Choose You!
Imo, this is an almost perfect 1st episode, reveals Ash' preferred starter from Squirtle, to Bulbasaur, then Charmander, only for Charizard to be his only fully evolved of the 3 later on and arguably strongest of the 3.
Absolutely my favorite show introduction with the Pokémon league battle of Gengar vs Nidorino & Onix.
Ash also reveals he wants to capture every Pokémon, something he's only accomplished around 10% of, missing out on Pidgey, Spearow, and even a Rattata in this episode. Had he not got attacked by the Spearow, he might of had a chance at a Sandshrew or Mankey.
His quick bond with Pikachu after protecting it from the Spearow flock was really nice, while also revealing Professor Oak, Gary Oak & Misty for the 1st time.
Teasing Ho-Oh without it being actually revealed for quite some time and not available in games until gen 2 was an amazing detail to me, even if they originally planned to have it in gen 1.
Other Pokémon introduced are Dodrio, Magikarp & Gyarados.
So far we've seen 16 new Pokémon.
Overall, 9 out of 10 for me.
Episode 2 - Pokémon Emergency!
Ash' 1st encounter with Team Rocket before they are made out to be incompetent at their jobs for years to come.
This also being the last time Ash' father being mentioned for 25 years.
Of course introducing the ever multiplying women of the Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny clans.
Really just a filler episode to introduce new reoccurring characters.
6 new Pokémon bringing us to 22.
Overall 5 out of 10.
Episode 3 - Ash Catches A Pokémon
Ash capturing not 1 but 2 Pokémon (Caterpie & Pidgeotto) was a great jump start to the series, and gives us are first look at a evolving Pokémon.
Very simple episode but pretty good.
4 new Pokémon in Beedrill, Metapod, Butterfree, and Pidgeotto, bringing us to 26.
Overall 7 out of 10.
Episode 4 - Challenge Of The Samurai
Introducing one of my favorite trainers to never appear again, Samurai, I loved this episode growing up & still do, I'd love to see his growth in a Journeys appearance but doubtful. Absolutely loved seeing Pinsir so early in the show.
Metapod vs Metapod will always remain a top 3 anime battle.
In a span of 2 episodes Ash captures Caterpie, evolves into Metapod, then again into Butterfree was pretty neat in following with the video game level system of its quick growth.
If only Ash captured that Weedle, or even kept the Beedrill he captures a few seasons later, what could of been.
My only question is what happened to Metapod's shell after evolving into Butterfree, Ash was holding it one sec & just gone the next. Ash's ability to connect to his Pokémon seemed unique from the start at this point with Pikachu & Metapod.
With 3 new Pokémon revealed being Pinsir, Weedle & Kakuna, we're up to 29.
Overall 7 out of 10.
Episode 5 - Showdown In Pewter City
Ash's first gym battle, being a loss showing off Brock's strength, frst episode to truly have anime logic break its own rules with Onix losing to an electric type attack.
I'm still not sure whether or not Ash actually deserved that badge but oh well, wish we could of seen Flint acting as the gym leader at some point while Brock was on his journey with Ash.
Yet another cool battle sequence. Brock leaving his gym to join Ash was definitely a shock as a kid, along with Flint being Brock's father.
With only 1 new Pokémon being Geodude, we're now at 30.
Overall 6 out of 10.
Episode 6 - Clefairy And The Moon Stone
Ash missing out on catching a Zubat is shameful here, at least Brock was able to capitalize on Pikachu's attack. Ash even says he should of caught one when he sees Brock has one.
After learning Clefairy was supposed to be the mascot, rather than Pikachu, Ash 100% should of caught the main Clefairy they dealt with in this episode, he at least "tried" before Seymour the scientist stopped him, still should of happened.
Also love that Misty used Staryu in the water when she could of used it at the Pokémon center instead of Goldeen, and could of used Goldeen in the water here. No matter what she says about Ash, she isn't the brightest herself.
This episode is unique in the sense of we get to see stone evolution for the first time.
Adding 5 new Pokémon brings us to 35, being Staryu, Zubat, Paras, Clefairy, & Clefable.
Overall 6 out of 10.
Episode 7 - The Waterflowers Of Cerulean City
The reveal of Misty having 3 sisters was pretty cool, even tho there's technically 4 gym leaders for Cerulean, it feels like the base idea for Cilan & his brothers gym in Unova.
I'm glad Ash didn't actually just take this badge but actually earned it in battle with Misty & defending the gym from team rocket.
Kind of lame Pikachu refused to battle Misty, but oh well.
2 new Pokémon brings it to 37, Seel & Starmie.
Overall 5 out 10.
Episode 8 - The Path To The Pokémon League
This episode seems like a filler, but honestly it feels like the base to Ash' philosophy as a trainer, type advantage doesn't always matter, there's ways to overcome advantageous opponents.
Another character I'd love to see make a comeback, whether its in Journeys or another form of Chronicles, AJ seems strong and should 100% get an update.
First episode where we don't get a new Pokémon, BUT, we're also just under ¼ of the Kanto Pokédex and we're only 8 episodes in.
Overall 5 out of 10.
Episode 9 - The School Of Hard Knocks
Fun battles in this episode, shows that their is indeed forms of classism in the Pokémon world. Also starts off looking like bullying, but turns out to be tough love/intense training.
Reveals there are other ways to get to the Pokémon league.
4 new Pokémon being Cubone, Graveler, Weepinbell & Pidgeot, bringing us to 41.
Overall 5 out of 10.
What do y'all think of these episodes? Should Ash have caught more Pokémon? These ones mentioned in particular that he either tried to or had the opportunity to catch & didn't?
I'll be back next week with 10-18

2021.12.08 10:56 geakin1 Mania? I don't think so but..?

So today I woke up at like 6am (the usually wake up around 8) and felt wide awake.
I've been on 5mg Lex for about 6 weeks now and have had lots of ups and downs, some manageable side effects, etc. so I just find this weird.
I wasn't able to fall back asleep. My brain just felt unable to sleep and honestly felt kinda clear which is weird. I don't have a ton of energy like I needed to go walk around or run around or whatever, just can't sleep and feel wide awake. Only slept maybe like 6 hours or so.
Thoughts? I was thinking of going up to 10mg soon but keep reading people having manic-like experiences

2021.12.08 10:56 Nerx For those of you familiar with DragonBall the Bando Lolong scenario is similar to Guldo Hit.

Like they have someone who looks unusual but is paired with a cool ass gimmick (hold breath time stop/full body joint extension) who is somehow defeated in a semi non-serious but somewhat threatening way by a side character.
Then fast forward later in the sequel they gave a small fraction of their power (0.1-0.5 time skip/shoulder extension) to some dude who is marketed as a 'cool' type. With given better stats, and put up/hyped against the main character.
Is this a trend in other series?

2021.12.08 10:56 hunter2-1A Is there two orbital maps?

I saw a clip yesterday of someone killing like 10 people by crashing their jet into the enemy. In the background I saw the rocket and the tower that is usually C sector and A sector. But this crash was A2 and yet a mile away from the tower. Is this a different game mode from regular conquest and thats why or is there two maps?

2021.12.08 10:56 Beautiful-Lion4774 Towers not dropping any nurses whatsoever?

Hi. Farming T3 Towers on a MF LA build. I've checked my filter at least three times, it's supposed to be showing nurses in the same tier as the mirror cards, nothing drops. I've ran 130+ quant maps and made sure to enter scourge as often as possible to the point of where it no longer spawns any upon entering. I'm averaging 250+ stacks per map.
I don't use divination scarabs. I run 4 watchstones with extra mob packs (fire, lightning etc). I also run 3 atziri quant fragments.
The fuck is wrong? I've dropped enlightens, exalteds, shavs and other "big ticket" items but no nurses. Any ideas wtf might be wrong?
Ran 40 towers according to Mapwatch.
