Mega evolution is so cool, glad they added it.

He captured them all but... what about Mew? Glad Red realized it. So mega evolution ain't permanent, shame...

Pretty good adaptation. Super-rushed but fun stuff. 8/10

This would've been a lot better if they didn't try to make it seem like the games and then ruin every battle by following no kind of logic. It's cool to stretch a few things to emphasize the friendship theme but it went far, far beyond that for seemingly no reason.

And I don't know why they reversed the order of Lavender Tower and Silph Co either...

The nostalgia man, holy cow. Could have done without the Mega Evolution stuff since its not in this generation so it didnt make much sense having it here but it was still pretty cool to see animated.

8/10

The Mega Evolution didn't even bother me. My beefs are with a supposedly experienced trainer with a lot of badges doing stuff like using normal moves against rock types (when he has a Fighting type move). And a freaking Rhyhorn rampaging over Red's entire team, and outrunning Pokemon due to plot convenience. Just give that role to Nidoqueen or something instead. Just doesn't feel like Pokemon Red at all.

Really wish this was a proper series but it was pretty good watch nonetheless.

I'm guessing Mega evolution is from the newer games I've only played up to diamond and pearl, then my DS broke.

Why are you not a complete series? Why?

Also doesn't Lugia count?

Pokemon logic here: Ground Types are immune to Electric attacks so why did Marowak die? Could Rain Dance have been used to soak Marowak.


crap didn't even realize that lol

even if cool and badass, mega evo does kinda feel out of place here

if i blame the lack of content due to the short length of this series, then i'd give a good score overall, maybe 7 or so.

cool to see hall of fame in action

LMAO Green's reaction is so justified. That was just stupid. I was fine with the pacing until now. I really wish we got to see the full match of Red vs. Green. It had such a hype start with Green's monologue, but the rushing made it super anti-climatic.

God, Oak favors Red so much it isn't even funny. Tells him not to even both worrying about his seriously injured grandson and is more concerned about seeing Red catch Mewtwo.

So they think there are only 149 Pokemon? I clearly saw a Slowking in the Hall of Fame, plus Kalos was brought up.

Nice episode. This series was a cool bit of fanservice. 6/10

the mega evolution was so awkward to see in a special that's all about gen1 but oh well! it looked cool

kinda wish red had been entirely unable to catch mewtwo LOL he's like 10 years old he doesn't deserve to be able to command mewtwo, he's way too majestic

Talk about style over substance. That should've been Ash over there when Prof. Oak asked if Gary- I mean Blue knew why he lost. Red has no right to be called someone who loves his Pokemon over Ash, especially when Origins showed so little of the bond between Red and his Pokemon. It's very sloppy writing, which is kinda pathetic compared to the main anime.

The battles could've been great if they weren't skipped over for budget reasons. Can't believe Ash's battles engaged me more than Red's ever did with his one-trick pony act of Charizard.

Overall, this was a total mess, almost as bad as Best Wishes if not for the badassery of Team Rocket here. They actually killed Pokemon here, not like the sissy TR of Best Wishes. The only thing holding this part of Origins back is also the most detrimental one: Red let Giovanni go. What the actual fuck. Ash would've been all, "Thinking of running away?! I won't let you go!" like a badass. All it took for Red to let Giovanni go was a few fancy words sugar-coated on his ego. Jesus Christ. What a shallow protagonist, even by Ash's standards.

And yes, I know Red would've probably been a more competent trainer than... say, BW and Kanto Ash (but probably not DP and XY/Greninja-Ash), but none of that matters when the plot is so thin and boring. This is a TV show, not a video game. The story and characters always come first. Remember that.

What a great, but also kind of rushed, final episode! Still pretty enjoyable though!

Wait...how's Charizard's flame still burning under water?

Looking at this now, I wished they kept mega evolution post gen 6 :(

Red did something even Ash couldn't do, catching more than half the pokedex entries worth of pokemon

I wonder why Red didn't use the three legendary bird pokemon, the mega-evolution caught me a bit off guard
