I might read that this Red seems kind of familiar, like i've seen him before o.O
My sister and best friend also prefer older episodes, but i belive that the huge part there is just that - episodes being odler i mean - i guess it's nostalgic for them. do you know what i mean? though they also prefer the pokemon from before and the episodes too. *shrugs*
And yeah, we (me, my sis and friend) always joke that Ash is seriously lacking testosteron XD
Oh, your from Sweden? that's cool i have a schoolmate who came from Finland to study Psychology in Slovenia though i am not sure she'll stay since it's pretty hard for her... she is still learning slovenian.
