Yes Pokemon i used to love this show i had gotten crazy over it's merchandise and used to watch it all of the time those were the days but suddenly one day they have bought out Advanced seasons and 4kids had to screw up the voices for the dub the voices are similar to the other rubbish cartoon Sonic X(i used to like it but now i despise it) i hope when the new dubbed Pokemon comes over here in the UK i hope it'll be good cause 4kids made Ash's voice croaky in the Advanced seasons i dunno why they had to change it.

This was a good show back when they first started, but it has gone downhill a bit since the Oarnge Island bit. The new Diamond/Pearl has shown some promises of being pretty good. I like this show and will still watch it Read more

Ash sends out Staravia. Brock thinks that Ash made a good decision by sending out a Flying type. Staravia starts off with Quick Attack, but Machoke defends itself with Brick Break. Since Quick Attack didn't work, Staravia uses Gust. The Gust has more success. Then Staravia uses Aerial Ace. Sumono orders Machoke to avoid the attack and use Cross Chop. Machoke scores a direct hit on Staravia with Cross Chop. Dawn notices that Sumono fights very well even if her Pokémon is at a type disadvantage. Machoke then begins to hit Staravia with a series of Brick Breaks. Sumono orders Machoke to finish Staravia off with Seismic Toss. However, before Machoke can get its hands on Staravia, Staravia unleashes a Quick Attack on Machoke. Then Staravia uses Aerial Ace and hits Machoke. The attack is super effective against Machoke, and Machoke faints... read more.
