    The video. Yes, I have seen that. I'm not sure if it actually qualifies as the "first" advert (Pokemon was featured for months in Nintendo Power prior to its actual release), but it was one of the earlier ones.

    It's interesting how much technology has changed since then. Can you even buy a new prerecorded VHS tape anymore?

    Possibly the first tv advert. Whats worse about it? Giovannis voice or the fact Ash has a load of corny relatives. It still reminds me of the good ol days when I enjoyed pokemon alot more than I do now.

    Haha the strange days of robo-Giovanni. <3

    And always a complete wtf when an ad (usually an American ad) adds something for humor but generally ruins and strays from the canon of the actual thing of something foreign. D:

    Yes, and I'm glad I didn't see that before getting into Pokemon because it sure would have kept me away from it.

    Wow. Now look at how far Pokemon has come since they first aired this corny commercial. Now, why, for some reason, does that make Pokemon seem so kiddy?

    The best part is Veronica Taylor as Ash's aunt. :D It makes the whole thing worthwhile.

    Because growing old is inevitable, but growing up is optional.
