I just recently watched pokemon the first movie and the nostalgia that it brought upon me was unfathomable. I laughed, I cried, I yelled at Ash for trying to punch Mewtwo head on. But watching the movie and the short pikachu's vacation prior ( I teared up when Charizard had tears when his head was stuck), it really reminded me that pokemon was such a great part of my childhood and that it (ok this sounds gay..) really helped me become the person i am today. Now i wont admit it to anyone who asks but general kindness to everyone, being brave when no one else can or will, and being true to your friends are all traits that i got from watching and playing. So if you find yourself bored out of your mind and in the mood for a good heap of nostalgia, pick up the gameboy or pop one of the movies in the VCR; I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
