Pokemon does not belong to me, in case you missed the disclaimer on the main page.

"Pokemon" is that disturbingly cute show that was created by Satoshi Tajiri, for those of you who don't know. Tajiri-san liked insects a lot when he was younger, and according to him it was his love of insects that inspired the cute designs of the "pocket monsters" in his show. The animation is cute, even if it isn't top-notch, and the show (and games...and toys...) are obviously pitched toward a younger audience. That, however, does not stop "older" otaku from appreciating it for what it is - a nice, fun, lighthearted anime that gives us a break from the "heavier" things such as "Blood: The Last Vampire" and "Serial Experiments Lain".

Pokemon has an interesting plot line, but very little plot development. Tajiri-san did fairly well on his character development, though, and his interest in insects as a small child certainly paid off.

Though I used to know almost everything about "Pokemon", I have since lost track of all of the merchandise, monsters, characters, etc. Gomen nasai, minna-san, but as I said, this is something of a "snack" for otaku - something light to take our minds off of the horrible ways that the world has ended in the last four series that we watched. Also, I am not particularly fond of the "Pokemon" merchandise, simply because of its sheer volume. If there weren't so much of it, I'd be happier about the whole deal. For those of you who disagree because you like your Anime toys, I like mine too. I just don't see spending my life-savings and then going $9,000 in the hole because I couldn't find that one rare card in any of the decks that I bought.

Be that as it may, I do have a bunch of pictures on this page (21, in fact. There used to be 55 but I had to delete some due to Angelfire's renegging of my memory.) that I scanned from a playing card deck that I gave to my friend a couple years ago. For those of you who do not like "Pokemon" (and should never have come to this page to begin with), I do not want any emails telling me that the show is "gay" or "stupid" because, frankly, I think that we can both find better things to do with our time than to send/recieve non-constructive emails. (And besides, "Pokemon" is supposed to be a happy show. I don't need to be informed that it is "gay" - I already know.)

Enjoy the pictures!!

There probably won't be any updates on this page, unless Jessi decides to change what she's written, and it isn't likely that she will.
