Hardcore Gamer: Here's a bit of background info to get things started. The episodes are based off the original Pokémon, Red and Green. There is no real story line present but there is a plot that is followed. You train a team, earn badges, defeat Team Rocket and catch all the Pokémon. The anime goes along with those events but adds more emotion. Red, the protagonist, learns how to grow with his Pokémon forming strong bonds and friendship.
