Being a fan of the first season of the show mainly (which had the best theme song by the way) I have to say that I was really disappointed when they took away Brock and Misty and haven't really cared for the newer characters as much and so I haven't watched it nearly as much. I've heard rumors that Brock was taken off the show because the creators were afraid that someone would call them racist because of Brock's slanted eyes. That brings me to my next point. Bellossom. It used to be one of my favorite pokemon when I first saw it in an issue of Becket magazine when the beta art was released. Once again, like Jynx the skin color was changed so they didn't appear racist. Now, not to get away from my point about Bellossom but I liked Jynx a lot more black and never thought she was meant to be a black human parody. Bellossom doesn't look half as human as Jynx did and by changing the skin color from BLUE to green it really just disappointed me.
I guess I'll just finish this up now before I go on rambling too much like a nostalgic old person. :P Darn kids these days... back in my day there were only a hunderd an fiddy pokeymans and we were darn glad to have 'em!
