Pokemon Season 1: Indigo League Part 1

Pokémon scored an immediate hit when it debuted on American TV in 1995: Adapted from a Gameboy game created by Satoshi Sajiri, the diminutive "pocket monsters" spawned a multibillion dollar franchise on both sides of the Pacific. The initial mania died down after a few years, but the games and the animated series and features have remained popular. Although it's unabashedly product-based and overly cute at times, Pokémon remains an agreeable children's entertainment that stresses friendship, perseverance, and good sportsmanship. The first broadcast season introduces the main characters and follows them through first part of the game in its original Red and Blue versions. Aspiring Pokémon trainer Ash Ketchum must establish a bond with Pikachu, the ultra-cute, but initially recalcitrant "electric mouse." He leaves his home in Pallet Town and quickly befriends fellow-trainers Misty and Brock. As the trio wanders through forests and towns, Ash begins collecting Pokémon and fighting other trainers. (The fights are very tame: Pokémon faint when they're exhausted, but are never injured or killed.) The three friends also outwit inept comic villains of Team Rocket, Jesse, James, and Meowth. Ash gradually matures through his experiences: In episode 20, he learns self-sacrifice when he allows Butterfree, the first Pokémon he caught and trained, to find a mate and depart for their nesting grounds. The original motto, Pokémon Getto Daze! (Let's Get Pokémon!) became "Gotta Catch 'Em All!" and many fans are still trying to do just that, although the initial number of 151 Pokémon, has more than tripled over the years. (Unrated, suitable for all ages: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

Also, be aware that the episode, "Beauty and the Beach," is not in its rightful slot and is not part of this set. Even though it was first banned during season one, it was later played as "the lost episode of Pokemon" during the Orange Islands season (though heavily edited). It is not clear why the episode was not reinserted back into this season, as that would make logical sense.
The menus are decent but nothing spectacular. When it comes to scenes selection, each episode is divided into only two parts. The first, being before the commercial break, and the second, coming after the break. The video quality looks pretty good. After comparing the color of episode one from this set to the version originally released on DVD with just three episodes, I found that the colors were slightly brighter or vivid in this version than the other.
Overall, this is the best edition of season one that there is to date. It's worth the purchase if you do not mind the American version. Hopefully, they will release the rest of season one very shortly. I rate this product 4 out of 5 stars because it does not contain the episode "Beauty and the Beach."
I bought this due to I wanted to re-watch how it all started. This part of the season introduces Ash, Brock, and Misty with their Pokemon companions. This is the Red/Blue game 'saga' if you wanted to know where this takes place in the timeline.
I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to relive the Pokemon days some several years ago.
