The Power of Pika

The heart of the Pokemon anime.(in my opinion)

Rate this Entry
Something I've been thinking about.

Personally I believe it's the light heartedness that continues to entertain kids all over the world. The excitement to see what will happen next in Ash's story and the enjoyment of watching the journey. The fact it lightens up a kids day no matter what episode it is or what season or even movie it is.

When I saw Pokemon the movie white in theater ages ago and how excited people were, it became something I would never forget for a long time. Nothing compares to being amongst fans who truely enjoy the show for what it is. From the old who watched since season 1 to the young getting into it. It was quite the experience.

The idea that this show could potentially last 10, 20, 30 or even 50 years and entertain many generations of children and still brighten up their day really makes me happy. It may not last that long but it has potential.

It could go through many casts and many handlers and still entertain children for many many years. That's because it's a light hearted and fun kids cartoon made to entertain. It's Pokemon at heart no matter how much it changes.

That to me is the heart of Pokemon. The heart is what keeps Pokemon going till this very day.

Why am I thinking this?

Watching lots of Bugs Bunny and looney tunes has got me thinking. That's all.

Now that's a cartoon that's lasted a long long time. Many casts and many styles and yet it still continues. I have old and current. The old is very different to the current. Bugs and Daffy are different back in the early days and yet it still keeps going. Starting right back to when looney tunes shorts (like Porky pig and before) were Black and white and in theatre......
Back when the stuff was released on film reels to the public. That is a long time ago before my time.

That's because while things have changed it's still looney tunes at heart.

It's why I love looney tunes. Such a history. While it has ups and downs it still finds a way to entertain a new generation in some shape or form.

Pokemon to me is like this. The longer is goes on, the older it gets and the more changes it goes through and yet it's still Pokemon. The heart of the show. Looking forwards to enjoying more adventures in the future.^-^

    I guess that's true. While I complain that Ash is still 10 (I had been younger than him when Pokemon first came out, now I'm old enough to adopt him XDD), that he's stupid and kiddy and being reset all over every start of the region... I have to admit that no matter how many years have gone by, Pokemon is still Pokemon the way it is. And although it probably needs a few changes, I'd say that it's awesome as it is now :)

    And what about people who have been watching it just to see what happens to ash or to see the conclusion of the series? I would frankly hate it if the show lasted for 50 years and I am an retired programmer still watching ash's pikachu lose. It just keeps going and going and going without any "big" changes..

    Ah much as I would love resolution, I would prefer the show to go on forever. For me, it's more about the journey than it is the destination.

    Yup, while I really think Ash should age, there's something about Pokemon that can keep it alive for decades to come.
