Anime(ted) Gifs #9 – Pokemon Origins

After two long months, the next issue of Anime(ted) Gifs is here!

Like usual, I’ve been a bit wrapped up in my work to make another Anime(ted) Gifs Issue. I was working on an issue for a short anime series, but it was still too long to do in my free time. I promise to bring that issue before the end of the month to make up for the long wait. In the meantime, I captured some pretty awesome Gifs from Pokemon Origins. If you’re thinking this anime is the same old Pokemon stuff like the last several seasons with Ash and the gang, you’d be dead wrong. This four part OVA is incredible, and I have the gifs to prove it! Fair warning, there are spoilers below.

Even though I captured a ton of Gifs, there was one scene that had to be shown in video form. Most of you Pokemon fans have probably seen it by now, but I want to post it myself in this issue. This is from the Japanese version of Pokemon Origins.

Speaking of the Japanese version, I really hope they release Pokemon Origins on Blu Ray with both English and Japanese audio. I doubt it, though. Only four Pokemon movies have been released on Blu Ray so far, and none have Japanese audio. I have searched the net to find a few Pokemon movies with dual audio, and they’re pretty great.

Enough of my rambling. Let’s get to the Pokemon Origins Gifs!

The show starts with Professor Oak, just like in the game. Eevee is my favorite Pokemone!

The show jumps from big event to big event. The next big event is Red's first gym battle against Brock. This is the final blow against Onix.

A few gyms later, Red ends up in Lavender Town. He hears the story of Cubone and his mother, Marowak. That's also where Red runs into Team Rocket.

After earning all eight badges, Red faces the Elite Four. Unfortunately, it doesn't show those battles outside of a few still images.

The battle is sort of fast forwarded to the main event, Charizard vs Blastoise. Charizard gets a face full of Blastoise's Hydro Pump.

The final thing for Red to do is to capture all the Pokemon in the Kanto region and register them in the Pokedex. The final Pokemon is the incredibly strong Mewtwo.

Still, Mewtwo is too strong. The only thing that was able to defeat him was Mega Charizard.

The show ends shortly after Red captures Mewtwo, but then he remembers Mewtwo was the child of Mew, so he goes searching for Mew. The End! I hope you enjoyed these Pokemon Origins gifs. Remember, you can share them, but please link back to this post!
