Pokemon Origins Is The Best Pokemon Series For Adults, You May Have Missed.

Pokemon Origins is the “adult” version or more so than the normal anime you find on Cartoon Network and other kids channels that you never knew you needed. While the normal anime series, especially if you watch it anywhere other than Japan, is rather childish and played down. Origins shines as a great alternative for adult fans of the series or anime genre. The show has more realistic violence, suspense, and overall darker tones that fit well in with the comic series.  It’s also only four OVA episodes making it an easier watch to get through than the 940 episode, and ongoing, original.

Pokemon Origins can be found officially on Youtube for your viewing pleasure. The series was initially released online for free to promote the latest released generation of Pokemon games X and Y. This version to many fans surprise was a drastic turn around for the series and featured the original region of Kanto and trainer Red. It also kept to a strict storyline instead of focusing on a monster of the week type episode or trying to stuff all the 151 original Pokemon in at once, which was quite refreshing for the game and comic fans. Origins also had a pretty solid voice cast behind it for the English language which can often be found lacking within such a quickly ported show.

The story follows the adventures of Red through the events of the first Pokemon game and his rival Blue, who are competing to become Pokemon league champions. Throughout the series, many popular gym leaders and battles are shown with beautiful detail worked in.  The music is also taken straight from the games with little modification and when an episode ends they even put in an old school save screen to act like the progress Red made that episode is saved to a cartridge. The series has many more cool little throwbacks to Red, Blue, and Green to enjoy as you are watching it.

Episode breakdown:

Episode 1:  Red and Blue Choose their first Pokemon from Professor Oak’s lab to set off on their adventure with. They end up in a short battle between their starters, then Red leaves to win his first gym battle at Pewter City.

Episode 2: This episode focuses on Lavender town and the intro of team Rockets Schemes.  Red learns of a Cubone that was chased by Team Rocket, who then ended up killing it’s mother Marowak. The Poke Flute that awakens Snorlax is also obtained from Mr.Fuji.

Episode 3: Follows the Silph Company take over by Team Rocket. The episode flips through the rest of the gyms Red must win. then goes on to the final gym battle between Red and Giovani.

Episode 4: This episode focuses on Red taking over the Pokemon Leauge and facing Blue in his final trainer test. Then afterwards it has Red going through Cerulean Cave to capture and tame the Mewtwo that escaped from the laboratory on Cinnabar Island.

If you end up enjoying the Origins series be sure and check out Pokemon’s newest project titled Generations. Generations episodes are shorts that will cover famous in-game moments.

Get Ready For Halloween With The Pokemon Center!

What most people don’t usually think of when shopping for certain holidays is the great selection of themed merchandise that Pokemon can provide them. Each season/holiday the premier and official mostly online store the  “Pokemon Center” comes up with and releases fun lines of merchandise for fans to buy for a limited time. With the Fall season having just started and the month for pumpkins and spooks upon us, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the great collectibles available from the Pokemon Halloween Circus line. The line ranges between 9.99 USD and 29.99 USD.

The Pokemon Center has currently released 18 collectible Halloween themed Pokemon items for you to choose from. These items range from a fun postcard to send to your friends, to collectible plushies of Pikachu dressed in stylish costumes. Each piece from the collection is a limited run and may never be sold again. If kept as a collectible you have a pretty great chance of their value staying at least near what you paid for them. The store is limited in locations in the U.S. and Japan most notably appearing in Tokyo and New York City. Most of their business is done online because of this and they keep their website updated at all times and extremely tidy with easy navigation. The price ranges are slightly high, but no more than most other branded merchandise and the shipping is priced rather decently with a scale according to the number of items you are currently purchasing.

Moving on to the actual collection you should know that most items are of the plushie breed. There are a few exceptions like the postcard mentioned above that features both costumed Pokemon and ghost types decorating its cover. There is also a pin set that features Pikachu in costume as well as Gengar, Duskull, Golbat, and Mismagius. Lastly for the non-plush items, you can pick up a keychain featuring Pikachu dressed as a jester on one side an Eevee as a pirate on the other.

Moving on to the plushies there is quite a bit to pick from especially since most of them have a few size variations to choose from for your personal enjoyment.  The first plush is a Pumpkaboo standard size plush that is like the plushies you will find on sale in chain stores across the globe. Next up is a Pikachu with a “King of Rock” costume featuring a guitar and a crown that is about 6.5 inches. If you’re looking for something bigger they have an 8.5 inch Pikachu Jester plush that has an optional keychain plush version.  To round out the Pikachu line they have a Pika Pumpkin plush in 4 different styles that include a card case as well as a plushie hat. Next is Eevee who is in the same pirate costume that’s on the keychain from the line. Evee stands at 7.5 inches tall, it should be noted that the cape she is wearing is modeled after a Drifloon.

Last we have a few cute keychains that you can buy if you want something cheap to clip on to your bag, You can choose from Plusle or Minun who are both dressed as pumpkins.  The eeveelutions Espeon and Umbreon are present with a  Mismagius-style  costume for Espeon and Zubat styled costume for Umbreon.  To finish everything up there is a Drifloon wearing Zubat ears available that might just be the cutest crossover that has ever been invented!

Why Pokemon Go Is A Positive Impact For Communties

Pokemon Go was undoubtedly one of the biggest smash hits of the summer, taking over town hot spots and streets all over the world. Now with the wait for the 2nd generation of Pokemon to enter the fray it’s always nice to take a step back and look at the positive impact Go had in communities around the world. From big cities to rural towns that were struggling to bring business into their shops the rampant chasing of Pikachus throughout streets caused a lot of positive changes.

First off, if you’re a local business owner you celebrated if your shop became one of the coveted Poke Stops that all the trainers gathered at. If you were a restaurant you could sell food and drinks all day long by just simply putting a lure up. For more retail based shops you could offer discounts for showing your app or the team you liked best. Online artists even made extra money just by making T-shirt designs for Valor, Instinct, and Mystic to sell to excited fans. Local Walmarts and chain stores even jumped on board with most of them having pop up poke-sections with plushies and portable phone chargers on display.

For players of the popular app, Poke hunting was a great way to find a new favorite restaurant or store. I can’t count the amount of people who have said they found a great coffee shop because they were running low on Pokeballs. Maybe you even went to exploring through the city for a Charmander that popped up on your radar and found a new comic shop to spend your time at? The benefits of just exploring your local area were huge since our society has become so much less inclined to go searching for hidden treasures throughout town.  Not to mention on the flip side of being a trainer probably earned you quite a few discounts at these places!

If shopping isn’t your thing you can’t deny the benefit of all the exercise you got from just walking around to hatch eggs.  The smallest egg you can hatch may just be 2KM, but that’s still just about a mile of exercise for you that you may not have gotten otherwise. Even chasing down Pokemon that you desperately wanted helped out with perseverance a lot. So, what if it was a few streets over, that Dragonite was had 1,500 CP and was more than worth it for your team. Pokemon Go turned into the ultimate secret workout routine for many and with the hot summer days and nights it had to be one of the best workouts you could get!

Lastly, how many new social interactions did you have when trying to find new Pokemon? All over the world people found themselves teaming up with all types of different trainers to try and hunt down Pokemon popping up on their radars. Some even teamed up in order to lessen the cost of keeping lures going at popular spots. Maybe if you were lucky you may have even found a significant other or the best friend you never knew you wanted?

All in all the interactions created by the original 151 Pokemon have already been amazing and hopefully, Generation 2 will do even better when it launches!

Need a quick monster collecting fix? Pick up Yo-Kai Watch 2!

If you have caught em’ all in Pokemon Go or you’re waiting for the second season of Pokemon releases then I’m sure you’ve looked into to pre-ordering the newest 3DS games Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. As you may have noticed, however, these game won’t be here until sometime in November leaving you in a collection slump. Fear not though, for Nintendo has your back as long as you are able to gain access to a 3DS. The game Yo-kai Watch is a monster collector based on a watch that can summon creatures by inserting the friendship medal they award you for pretty much just feeding them a lot of food.

Yo-Kai Watch 2 has just released and is a huge monster collecting game by the same studio(Level-5) that made the insanely beautiful and popular Ni No Kuni game for the PS3.  Yo-kai Watch is similar to Pokemon in enough ways to scratch the itch you have for new Pokemon. The games currently have 3 versions out in the non-eastern part of the globe titled Yo-kai Watch, Yo-kai Watch 2 Fleshy Souls, and Yo-kai Watch 2 Bony Spirits.  Yo-kai Watch 2 is split into two different versions that contain different Yo-kai depending on the ones you pick much like Pokemon. They each have over 200 Yo-kai to befriend and features online battle to challenge your friends with when you assemble your ultimate team.

On the story side of things Yo-Kai Watch has a very comical narrative to it and never tries to take itself to seriously.  The collectible creatures in Yo-kai Watch all have quirks about them generally related to their names. Fidgephant, for example, is found in the game causing mischief because anyone he is around ends up having an uncomfortable urge to run to the bathroom. The world of Yo-kai Watch is filled with sidequests detailing the mischief that the different Yokai causes for the humans around them and it’s your job to generally stop them with a battle. The main story itself is usually a little more serious, but it still has a lot of light-hearted moments throughout it to keep things colorful and fun. The first game takes around 12 hours to get through and the second has been quoted to be pretty expansive giving you a lot more to play.

The battle system that we mentioned above is also quite different from Pokemon. Each Yo-kai has a level and most of them have evolutions/fusions to help make them more powerful. The battle will have you spinning a wheel to switch out Yo-kai and using mini-games to build up their soultimate moves to deal massive damage to the opponent. There is also mini-games to help break status effects and collect bonus items that fly across the screen. The system is generally a complicated mesh of micro management that is easy to learn and get into quickly.  Just make sure to keep a good balance of firepower,defense, and healing throughout your team and you can do just fine.

If you do end up getting into Yo-kai Watch on the side almost every store carries Yo-kai Watch merchandise as of right now so feeding your inner collector is easy. Currently, you can buy yourself a Yo-kai Watch and the medals. There is also a huge line of small medal moments toys that come with the Yo-kai posed with its medal to put on a shelf. On top of all of that a new line of giant plushes have just come out of the show’s mascots Jibanyan and Whisper.
