No, they are Generation III remakes of Generation I games. There's a difference.
You're darn right there's a difference! They RUINED the originals by adding in that new crap, such as Natures and Abilities, and they nerfed Psychic types! Seriously, it was fine the way it was, damn Gen III babies and their whining.

evolve his Pikachu already. Granted, evolution doesn't mean as much in the anime as it does in the games, but when you almost get defeated by a pathetic Magikarp using Tackle, you know there's something wrong. He still has the Thunderstone, too, so there's no excuse. --- Blaziken - the ORIGINAL Fire/Fighting starter.
I'll take him losing to a Magikarp if it means another fight like the Lt. Surge rematch.
The Thunderstone episode mentioned above was basically a re-do of that episode. I can't find it online anymore, though. Then again, I didn't look particularly hard the last couple of times, so you can probably find it up on some obscure anime streaming site someplace. --- I claim to be the official Porygon2 of the Pokemon Black 2 board.
