26 + 2 redubs + 3-part special
Pokemon The 'Bridged Series, usually shortened to Pokemon 'Bridged or P:TBS, is a series by 1KidsEntertainment, xJerry64x, and starting with episode 2, Nowacking. It is an unconventional and somewhat surreal Abridging of the Pokemon anime, and it has surpassed the popularity of 1Kids' long-running Death Note Abridged series.
Style and CharacterizationEdit
The writing style is largely random humor, with numerous jokes and branches of dialogue seeming to be nonsensical. Very few outside references are made, with the few being either very subtle or hidden, (one exception being a very blatant jab at Ray William Johnson). It is worth noting that the current writing style did not develop until Episode 2 when Nowacking joined the team.
Brock is a two-in-one character; at most times he acts like the original Brock, though he has a second half that is an exaggeration of his obsession with becoming a Pokemon breeder. This Brock is heavily perverted, demented and likely dangerous, emphasized by voice actor Jerry speaking in a guttural growl.
- Ash Ketchum (1Kids): In this version, a complete failure of a Pokemon trainer. He seems to get lucky whenever he battles with Misty around. A running gag is him doing absolutely nothing and either winning a battle or catching a Pokemon. His Pokemon include Pikachu, Butterfree, Pidgeotto, Charmander, Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Primeape.
- Misty (Nowacking - Ep. 2 till present, including the Ep. 1 Redub): In this version, has an entirely obvious crush on Ash, yet always seems adept at seeing Ash lose. At first, she seems to not have control of her mind, but is later seen as the only one with common sense. Unlike the original, she is a fire Pokemon lover, and is away from home for being a disappointment to a water Pokemon family. Her Pokemon include Staryu, Starmie, Psyduck, and Togepi (Ep.15 only).
- Brock (xJerry64x): In this version, has a more insane view of breeding. Was described as "So creepy, that even the underground association of breeding wouldn't accept him into their ranks." He also seems to have a crush on Ash, several other females, and pokemon. So he is a bisexual pokephiliaic. His Pokemon include Geodude, Onix, and Vulpix.
- Pikachu: In this version, Pikachu can actually speak. Pikachu is also a pyromaniac, how he starts some of the fires are a complete mystery, though one can assume a simple mixture of an electric spark and gasoline is the usual method. Also evil minded.
- Delia Ketchum: Ash's mother, seems to have a hatred for her son and a (Mostly physical) love for Professor Oak. In the Orange Islands special, it is strongly implied that May is her and Professor Oak's daughter.
- Professor Oak: Likes to tell everyone about how everything was done with "husks of corn" back in his days. He's not subtle about his relationship with Ash's mom, but Ash still hasn't figured it out. He also once founded a nudist colony.
- Officer Jenny: A pedophiliac who is made evident upon drugging Ash and taking him to numerous places. As of Ep 17, she claims to be working on this problem. While her prefered age group is never stated concretely, she's expressed that Brock is too old for her.
- Nurse Joy: An airhead who is more likely to accidentally kill the Pokemon in her care than heal them. She's also something of a businesswomen, demanding payment for her services in healing Pokemon, and even started up a side-business of selling Pokemon corpses, so it's a win-win situation whether they live or die. She gets pissed when she isn't paid.
- Tracy: Enjoys sketching people..."NAKED!"
