Suede, Linkara, and JewWario all in one review? A review of the Poke'mon movies, no less? This might possibly be the coolest thing ever! This was really fun, you guys make a lot of good points about how it's a bad movie, but tons of fun for Poke'nerds like myself. I can't wait until the review of Poke'mon 2000, that one's my personal favorite.

Jenni's things that grab her interest said...

Some are going to tell me to shut up and others are going to tell me that I'm nit picking but the opening joke where Jew Warrio choices a female avatar and then Suede and Linkara's reactions really hurt me as a trans woman. I know the intention wasn't meant to feel transphobic but to me it did. It almost suggests that's it's not ok to express a side them that isn't the gender that most people are used to. It's Suede's insistence that Jew Wario puts on a male avatar that really stung. It reminds me of my family and friend's reaction when I came out as trans. They too had the same reaction and they too told me to go put on more male clothes and refused to have anything to do with me if I expressed a gender that wasn't what they wanted me to express. (this didn't help either that I was born intersexed but that's another story for another time) Anyone that's been there knows that for friends and loved ones to reject them as they really are hurts like hell. Now I'm not saying that either Linkara, Suede or Jew Warrio are transphobic, but their joke was pretty irresponsible and the fact they didn't find a problem putting it on here shows that they either don't know many transgender people or they don't really understand what it means to be trans. This is something I've seen from time to time in the videos on this website. Whether it's Nostalgia Critic making fun of the girl that had very androgynous looks on his review of Nickelodeon or the way Spoony does the joke about the Critic liking to dress in women's clothes in Alone In The Dark as if this is something to be ashamed of. Please know that I don't believe that Channel Awesome is transphobic but still, there's been quite a few jokes on this site that do hurt none the less and I think is harmful as it bolsters the attitude that being transgender in any capacity is something to mock and shun.

Awesome review! Cannot wait for Pokemon 2000!

The joke is that Jew Wario is being a pervert, not upset about the gender he was born into.

Not being a fan of Pokemon, I found this review really interesting and was a really hilarious review, really brought a smile to my face since I was feeling kinda depressed at the time. Great work on this review and keep it up ^_^

Suede I think you have the most dedicated fanbase on TGWTG, we wait years and years and you're busy a lot so you don't create as much content as most, but when you do we're still here and love ya. :P

A commentary? Fantastic!

Thank you very much for the newest AMV Heaven because you've introduced me to an amazing song. Also, I need to find that anime.
