Mandy was a pretty minor character, but if I remember correctly, he had his ass handed to him by Ash and his underdog crab-like ally.

Pokemon, like a lot of dubbed anime, is inherently a bit weird because it comes from the other side of the world, gets translated into English, has the story modified somewhat to not offend too many parents, and is then reworked into a comprehensive story. Some shows show this more than others.

Pokemon is a series about a boy and his super powered animal buddies winning with the dual powers of friendship and energy-based attacks. Make of that what you will.

Even the old cartoons that didn't teach that garbage have been nerfed:

X-Men, Amazing Spiderman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles... If you're looking for cartoons for your boys, the New Adventures of Johnny Quest might be the way to go, if you can find it.

I grew up watching Pokémon, I turned out pretty okay. To each his own tho.
