The Pokemon anime series is something i droped for many years, basically is just the same formula but a different region with new Pokémon and so on.

I came back just for one reason. I played the original game in a Game Boy when I was 10, and since then i followed the games, maybe for someone the games are like i just said about the anime "the same formula but a different region with new Pokémon" but i think the games, in fact, are more fun and engaging.

It takes the most memorables moments of the original game like read more

Nostalgia can be a detriment to looking at something through a critical lens. Fond memories can blur your judgment concerning the quality of a work of fiction, especially if it's something you grew up on.

Recommendations

Both originated from old games and give guide lines on how to beat them. They also have their on spin-off of the game. While Druaga only contains one scene where the characters actually play the game, Pokemon follows the game up till the battle with Mewtwo.
If you enjoyed Pokemon: The Origin, you'll most likely enjoy the Pokemon Black and White 2: Introduction Movie. You can find the intro movie (which is actually a 6 minute ONA) on YouTube, if you don't have the game. These two are the very best anime that the Pokemon franchise has to offer.
