Pokedex Entry 4: Charmander

Pokemon has been a part of my life, off and on, for about sixteen years. I think it’s time I started writing stuff about it. I make no promises as to how long this series will last.

I already talked about how all the cool kids picked Charmander as their Starter in the first Pokedex entry, so this will be about something far more relevant.

In the Pokemon anime, the main Charmander, the Charmander that would go on to win ratings, and our hearts, was formerly owned by an abusive trainer named Damien, who just up and left him when little Charred-Salamander was too weak to battle. I will forget a lot of things in my life. I don’t remember my first kiss very well. I don’t remember the names of my elementary school teachers. But I do remember the voice of the abusive trainer in that episode, with an accent that can only be described as mocking everyone who’s ever lived in Australia and England at the same time.

In the space of one episode, he pronounces it as “Chawmeter”, “Chahmanda”, “Choremanah”, and “Chwoiiimanda.” 

It’s something that I will tell me kids about.
