View Full Version : Nintendo Power tape

23rd July 2007, 6:09 AM
Years ago, a few months before Pokemon was to be unleashed on the US populace, Nintendo Power subscribers such as myself received a tape that outlined the basics of Pokemon and ensured that impressionable kids such as myself would buy into the new phenomenon.

I've looked through most of Serebii, so forgive me if I missed it, but I can't find anything about this tape anywhere I've looked. If anyone here has information on this tape, or somewhere that I could acquire it, I would be forever indebted.

I heard about it and i saw a video on youtube with the entire tape uploaded. It was actually really short and had this one lady. She kept repeating " but the whole point is you gotta catch em all" it was so 90's.

I received it in the mail a couple of months before the anime aired.

It must have had some sort of mind control subliminals planted in it, because after I watched it I was hooked!

Unfortunately, I do not own the tape anymore. Our old VCR destroyed it
many years ago.

I, too, received those tapes, all those years ago! I remember them fairly well. I think there were some clips on YouTube (don't site me, on this) that was pretty much everything the tape showed...
