This animation did relate back to when I played Pokemon Blue for the first time (my 4-year-old mind was blown aback), when all the sound effects of the Pokemon or anything is general scared the living hell out of me. I didn't figure out until 3 weeks into the game that I could actually turn down the sound on the Gameboy Color.
Although it did relate, it didn't keep me enthralled. Everything was just an expected montage of some sort, the death of the Charmeleon being the latter of it all. Oh, it's unable to battle!? Big surprise there. When I see the ratings of these not-so-fairly-new animations, I always tend to be disappointed on how the Newgrounds public can easily get that entertained over a popular meme of some sort (not saying this is one, but the whole "death of Pokemon" seems to be going around a lot on the web these days).
The artwork itself was actually very well done, for the most part. I don't know if the Charmeleon was supposed to look like a deranged miniaturized dinosaur or anything like that, but it just added to the flare, if you will. It's one of the only tolerable reasons why I gave this short movie a 3 star rating. If you just improved on a sense of humor instead of a bunch of yelling, then I think that it would leave me coherent enough to write a review on how humorous and funny this movie actually is.
Best of luck.
