Wow! I came in here at an interesting time since the older series is also being rewatched almost completely by others too!
I started rewatching the entire Kanto series a few days ago. I finished the Indigo Plateau episodes just last night and started on Johto. :3
Gosh how I missed these old days.. I don't care how bad and how cheesy the episodes are, they are all still so amazing. For Pokemon, I'll always be a kid at heart. <3
.. and Pikachu's Goodbye still manages to make me cry a river. ;~;
