I dont know if there was a discussion on this before or not but i just wanted to know what you have felt about this show. When i was in elementary school and jr. high it was the big thing. I still have all of my cards hanging around somewhere that im sure are worthless now. I used to get up early early in the morning to watch it before it was released in the afternoons. I havent watched the more recent episiodes. I really had fun playing the different versions of the gameboy game. I probably couldnt count how many hours and days i spent on that game. 

Was there anyone out there that was like this? or anyone know of or have children that still watch this show?

My eight year old is loving Pokemon right now. His buddies are also into it, so they all geek out together.
Ya' down with O.T.T? Yeah you know me.

Yeah i just didnt know if it had died away or what.  I still see people selling their pokemon cards on ebay, but i just dont know if i could get out of my cards the money that i wanted. :) lol they are all original or the first few expansions to the game that they released but it doesnt seem that they are as big as they once was.

And i dont think the first edition cards are worth a whole lot, maybe first edition charizard but im not sure.

yeah, there are times where i want to do the research and see if i can get anything out of my cards but then i ill switch and decide to just keep them and maybe let my kids have a go at them (when i have kids) and maybe teach them how to play and all of that.

yeah let me tell you from experience with MTG cards that you will never recoup even a small percentage from your cards, depending on the # of cards you have you might be able to sell them ALL for a 100 maybe even 200 bucks but chances are you spent WAY more than that when you bought them

lol yeah i guess that is why i should just plan on keeping them for my kids.  I had some uncles that were really into MTG in the 80's and they were smart and sold all of the good cards they got back then when they were worth something, but back in my younger years i got greedy and thought that by the time i reached the age that i am now that my cards would be worth so much more.  ;D doesnt look like it now does it?

actually bad news to your uncles, depending on what cards those were, first edition MTG cards are worth a fortune,  black lotus last time i checked was still 400 bucks and all the moxes and duel lands were worth 200 bucks

I'm 29 and love Pokemon. In my defense, I was hooked on the game MONTHS before it became a nation-wide phenominon. I even have a couple KFC stuffed Pokemon from before the show came out. :^)

I'm still waiting to see if they will release seasons on DVD like they have started too (i know they have single disks) for Dragonball Z. I always have liked to start a show from the beginning and then go through it until the end. must by why i get frustrated when i dont get jokes on some episodes of MST3K. lol oh well.

Actually, Viz Media did release Season 1 of Pokemon Indigo League. It covers episodes 1-26 on a three disc set.

The show once had an episode that invoked seizures in the children who watched it, and briefly had a character that was an obvious blackface stereotype. When I have kids, there's no way that I'll rot their brains with this crap.
This iRiff will only be on sale for another few hours. Get it while it's cheap!
