Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Ash, Misty, and Brock left Saffron City in shame, defeated by the psychic power of lovely Sabrina's Pokémon in Psychic Surprise. Now they're compelled to search the haunted Lavendar Town for a ghost Pokémon--their only chance to defeat Sabrina and earn Ash's Marsh Badge. In the first of these three very spirited episodes, the trio braves a ghoulish mansion, the antics of various spooky Pokémon, and an out-of-body experience. But it's all in good fun, and certainly more creative than your average Scooby-Doo plot. Having befriended Haunter through his humor, Ash confidently leads his team back to Sabrina's gym, only to be humiliated once again by the scowling beauty and her smiling alter-ego doll when Ash's new ghost Pokémon gets spooked. Luckily, the mysterious bearded man returns to help him rescue his buddies and empower his team of loyal Pokémon. In the third episode, Ash utilizes constructive force--and Charmander--to capture the wild Primeape. With their imaginative plots, smartly detailed animation, and distinctive characters, Pokémon videos always offer an entertaining feast for young eyes and ears. Stories rely on dialogue and action scenes geared toward 5-year-olds and up; any "violence" usually is limited to Pokémon face-offs and doesn't involve guns. Occasional guffaws and humorously distorted facial expressions add to the lightweight nature of this 75-minute collection. Followed by Fashion Victims. --Liane Thomas

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable series... Sept. 29 2002
Format:DVD
Pokémon is the story about Ash Ketchum and his friends, Misty Williams and Brock Harrison. Ash's goal is to become a Pokémon Master. Misty's goal is to be "the best at everything" but, more specifically, a Water Pokémon Master. Brock's goal is to be the world's best Pokémon breeder. Pokémon are the animals that inhabit their world. They come in many different species (mouse, cat, dog, etc.) and types (electric, grass, water, fire, etc.). Each Pokémon trainer trains his or her Pokémon to battle other Pokémon and win badges to compete in Pokémon Leagues. Ash, Misty, and Brock must deal with Jessie, James, and Meowth of the evil Team Rocket, who want to steal Ash's first Pokémon, Pikachu, and usually other Pokémon as well. This Japanese animation series is an advertisement for the Pokémon video games, and the episodes' plots are usually simple, but this is actually an enjoyable series. Common themes are friendship, not giving up, parting ways with a dear friend, and other good morals. Parents and guardians that are concerned about the violence need not worry. Yes, the kids have their pets fight each other, but they also must learn to take care of and love their pets. Girls will find a strong female role model in Misty. Overall, this is a fun, simple, warm-hearted, rather repetitive series. However, despite how much I like the anime, the DVDs are not worth your money. Each episode is probably less than twenty minutes long, and there are only three episodes on each DVD. You would be paying the price of this DVD for around one hour of Pokémon. That's ridiculous. They don't even include the Japanese vocal tracks with English subtitles or the fun music videos from the TV airings. You can rent these same English-dubbed episodes on VHS. If you really want this series on DVD, my advice to you is to buy the movies and the special, "Mewtwo Returns", and wait for box sets of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey! What about Sabrina? Sept. 9 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This volume, as you probably know, is called "Primeape Problems". And that means that "Primeape goes Bananas" is here. But there is a "problem" with this volume. They forgot that Ash has two more episodes in this tape to worry about Saffron City's gym leader, Sabrina. But we could all see the "Primeape Problem" just by looking at the cover of "Psychic Surprise". That cover has the three ghost Pokemon that Ash encounters on his way to help Sabrina. The trouble is that that part of the story is on this volume! They just wanted to get it out of the way so they can hype up Primeape in this tape. Not funny! Do you know how many Pokemon fans could be confused between the two volumes without watching them? Oh, well, I assume that maybe if they didn't do this, Primeape would beat them up. Moral: Never try to pick a fight with a crazy Pokemon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Haunter's Showdown April 24 2000
Format:VHS Tape
On this video there is an episode called Haunter vs Kadabra. I think it's cool because every time Ash goes to battle Sabrina Haunter runs away. Also in the video there's an episode called Primeape goes Banannas.In that episode Ash's hat gets stolen. I think it's pretty weird.I hope you like it. In the final episode, the Tower of Terror there are 3 ghost Pokemon. It's pretty awesome.I hope all of you watch it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sept. 29 1999

Format:VHS Tape
This video is awesome! I really like the part where Primeape steals Ash's hat, but for those of you who have not seen it I'll just leave it at that . This video is great and I really reccomend that you buy it ! Note: The only reason that I gave it 4 stars is because I'm not that much of a Primeape fan , if it were'nt for that I would have given it five !

This pokemon show seemed to stress comedy rather than the serious theme of the earlier shows. Relying on slapstick throughout with little effort given to further character development of story telling. We will still buy the next shows, but this does not bid well for the upcoming movie.
