Sony PlayStationMonster Rancherfans, prepare to enter the game world! In this animated video, Genki wins aMonster Ranchertournament, receives a "Monster 200X" CD-ROM as a prize, slips it into his player, and is magically sucked into theMonster Rancherworld. Bragging to Holly that he's a game expert, Genki facilitates her escape from the Black Dino Squad. Holly reveals Moo's plot to conquer her world and describes her quest to defeat Moo by finding the mystery disk that contains the Phoenix. Genki inserts his own CD-ROM into the shrine and it unlocks not the Phoenix, but a cute, perpetually hungry little monster he names Mocchi. In "I'm Mocchi," Holly's magic stone leads the foursome deep into a forest amid a terrible storm in search of another mystery disk. When Genki, Holly, Mocchi, and Suezo come to a fork in the road in "Guardian of the Disks," they are told to beware of the enigma that lives in the forest ahead. Guided by Holly's stone, they persevere and discover a graveyard of old disks guarded by a friendly stone monster named Golem. When Golem defeats the evil blue Gel army, Genki and Holly invite him to join their continuing quest to release the Phoenix. This video--and TV series--bears marked resemblance to thePokémonseries and, although slightly less skillfully animated, it is sure to appeal to a whole generation of gamers and animation fans. Parents concerned about violence should, of course, be vigilant. (Ages 5-10)--Tami Horiuchi

Okay, so mabye this show *IS* like Pokemon and Digimon combined, but like those other shows, it starts out the same go's on a compleatly different and fun plot! Plus I think it should be noted that this is the first show that actually shows the Playstation in it!1. In The Begining (5/5)In this episode we find out that Genki wins a special CD-ROM from a "Monster Battle" contest (This WAS called something else in Japan) at the beginning of the show!
